Language is the mother of thought, not its handmaiden.
Words make you think a thought. Music makes you feel a feeling. A song makes you feel a thought.
E. Y. Harburg

Personally, I have had sometimes moments where I thought my idea behind the idea of a collection - the concept maybe - something that we don't see at the end on the catwalk, I think the way it was, the genesis in my mind, was probably artistic, an artistic approach.
