Origins of creativity rooted in the original choice of Craig become a portraitist, but a desire to be involved in the creation suit resulted in the emergence on the modern Olympus the genius of male designer. In his interview Green has repeatedly stated about finding the ideal of masculinity and hard to believe, but he has been designing clothes for women at the very beginning. After the first few attempts, his internal struggle came to a conclusion that ought to take note of the many famous fashion designers today: “I think for the good development of women’s clothing you must have a certain type of character, and I am not the owner of one of them. Men’s clothing, even in their clumsiness makes more sense, I find that aesthetic root of my labor works better on a male person”. Practice our hero is also based on the idea of group mentality.
