Future may be rooted in the past

NEW YORK (AP) -- Is there a future in fashion's past?

That's the question that Time magazine put to Valentino and Russell Simmons for a new commemorative publication, "Time Style & amp; Design," which is being distributed to select subscribers of Time and InStyle and at New York Fashion Week.

According to designer Valentino, who is best known for his glamorous gowns, the future is built on lessons of the past.

"You don't become an important designer without study and training. You cannot be a designer without knowing how to cut a dress. The only way you learn these things is by studying the work of those who worked before you," Valentino said.

But Simmons, founder of both Phat Fashions and Def Jam Recordings, warns that focusing on history might leave new opportunities that integrate music, fashion and lifestyle unnoticed.

"Our view is that the future is now. If you miss what is happening today in urban communities across the nation and throughout the globe, then you will surely miss a 'phat' opportunity."
