This first fabulous post was artfully crafted by Matt Kasin, aka The Gaudy God. He is a fashion designer, filmmaker and stylist with a self-described "expensive bad taste". He is inspired by pop culture, John Waters, Versace and Italian horror films. He believes in fashion as a religion and salvation from the everyday mundane. He owns two online clothing stores filled with original and vintage garments: Gaudy God and a 90s concept store inspired by Clueless called THE MALL.
