Undead, but not unfashionable

fashion-baires-headshots-180.jpgMemo to design staff: In looking for new demographics for our haute couture, I have exciting news. This fall we’re going after the zombie market!

I know you’re saying, “But Bob, aren’t they kind of creepy?” Well, maybe, but our market research shows that zombies have lots of disposable income. They don’t have to pay for their food because, um, you know what they eat. And they don’t have to pay $4.00 a gallon for gasoline, because they just lurch around for free.

Best of all, we don’t have to create outfits in a whole bunch of different colors. Zombies pretty much stick to basic black and white, kind of like the Amish. NOTE TO SELF: see if there’s an overlapping Amish-zombie market!

Clark Kent and Evita Peron leave the pages of history and, due to a wobble in the space/time continuum, find true love, in their 1970′s fashions… [except for the shoes, which they got from Goodwill]
