The visual critic

So in our lecture today, I noted down quite a few quotes from designers which I thought were inspiring. 

"I think there is beauty in everything. What "normal" people would see as ugly, I can usually see something of beauty in it." - Alexander McQueen

"Fashions fade, but style is eternal" - YSL

"The only real elegance is in the mind - if you've got that, the rest really comes from it" 
- Diana Vreeland

To be a visual critic, people use their own voice and have their own opinion; such as being able to make a judgement of something. This can be based on ideas which are discussed and debated. A visual critic also records everything they see - in forms of a camera, sketchpads, notepads, etc. This shows that anybody can create style and has their own sense of style. It doesn't necessarily have to be "beautiful" to everyone's eye.
