Words of Wisdom

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.'s second issue is here, and in it, Alber Elbaz talks about everything from his musical debut (to which he dedicated to "all of the designers in the world and their mothers"), hirings and firings, and other odds and ends. He also provides us with an insight into his work process, which just so happens to be the best thing we've heard all day, or, ever. Put quite simply: "I always say I cannot work with bitches; they block my creativity." [Fashion Etc.]
