For so many of us, fashion is baffling. For many of us, fashion feels an ever-changing monster of consumerism, demanding an identity with an ideal that is perfect and permanently out of reach.

If this is protest, we stand next to Alina, not just because of what she is saying through her work but because of the intriguing, beautiful, dexterity with which she is able to say it.
