Just look at this gorgeous dress. It really is sad what happened- what he said, the state he was in due to his various addictions, his fall from grace... but it was just the kick in the balls he needed. Hopefully he has learned from all of this, and takes all the time he needs to overcome his demons.
I personally think he should just keep doing commissioned work for the next few years, if not the rest of his life. Each and every piece from here on out would be truly one of a kind. He made this out of what he calls "bits" (tulle, sequins, veils, and flowers). With that kind of talent, he doesn't need a label to still be successful.
This dress represents their amazing friendship. I would cry my little eyes out if anything ever happened to it ><
