Dash Snow

I can't go as far as say i have fallen in love with dash's work but in some weird way it has captivated me and held me for a while from his cum splatted corrupt police newspaper headline collages to his Nan Goldin esque images of the things we get up to behind closed doors, or maybe i am feeling nostalgic about his use of Polaroid images. He is a modern day artist that i have a respect for.

British Fashion Awards

I agree whole heartedly on Luella winning designer of the year and Jourdan Dunn winning model of the year but again it comes down to the BFA's lack of diversity when it comes to considering menswear. Christopher Bailey is an amazing designer with an amazing team and Burberry yes is a great brand. But it is a big corporation with a large team of skilled designers last year Bailey won against other nominees such as Casette Playa, this year he won against established houses such as Paul Smith and Richard James. I just wonder what the panel thought of London's emerging designers such as James Long, Aitor Throupe, Carola Eurler, Cassette Playa etc etc to not give them a look in or to not even bother to nominate them. For Burberry to win the award two years in a row i just think it shows the laziness and how much effort the British Fashion Council put in when it comes to nurturing and caring for the new breed of menswear designers.

After watching the MJ DVD yesterday i decided to have a good look at MJ's Marc by Marc collection. Funnily enough the fab Charlie Porter popped up wearing one of Jaiden rVa James signature African print shirts. x

Marc jacobs DVD

So i am a little old on this one. I tried so hard to get my hands on this DVD. It was sold out in most london stockists even the Marc Jacobs Store. I actually enjoyed this insightful view of the world of MJ and his team, also to view the way he approaches fashion is some what enjoyable. Having watched Lagefeld Confidential a few months prior to this the contrasts are amazing. I am not comparing Marc to Karl beacuse that would just be stupid. What iam saying is that the MJ DVD showed Marc as a person going about his job whilst the KL DVD showed very little of Karl himself but basically portrayed him as a very rigid complex character focusing very little on his human nature. I do recomend both DVD's to anyone as i recomend A beautiful fall as a must read. XoXo

Glen O Brien is a true inspiration, from hanging out with Warhol, editing 60' interview and having his own show which was just so raw but yet so cool and then again editing interview now.
