Fashion Consuption: I

ysl-et-catherine-deneuve

I was always share between: making the iconic fashion or being the designer’s muse..

 

I decided to wear just one jacket, & make it reversible to my liking.

 

When I heard Catherine Deneuve was making a auction sale of her YSL pieces, I couldn’t help but wonder what would i do with mine, when my day would come, and so I wrote…

One day, when I will be older the only good reason for me to leave my garde-robe, is when I will leave this world. I heard that Elisabeth II (and many other Queens) has a very strict archives of outfits worn: what, when, where.

That always fascinated me, maybe one of the reason I started doing daily photos from my looks. Sometimes I change up to 3 times a day, and most of my outfits are only wore once. Not because I am a fashion victim of consumption, but because everyday is unique.
I wear my “Sunday best” everyday because everyday is a party to celebrated (now Madonna Holiday 1983 running in my head!)


I don’t buy fast fashion, I don’t buy trendy or new. I buy cheap, thrift and find old and forgotten. One’s woman misery is an other one’s joy. YES. I don’t have anything against couture. In fact i love it, and i don’t mind a single bit putting 1000 euros in a hand embellished one of a kind dressed.

What i do mind is putting a 1000 euros in a pants that looks the same as an H&M pants for 10 euros. Both ends of this chains are wrong. We need to live a bit more far from the edges and understand the power of our surrounding environment. Buying local is sooooo important, buying less is also a steppingstone to a more sustainable future.

I don’t like vintage JUST because it’s pretty, I like the vintage state of mind, of “do well, last long, take care and pass it on” . I don’t mind wearing vintage fur, because even tho it’s an animal, it has been dead since 40 years. I will it never buy new, but i would never throw away goods ether.

People in the street may think “she’s a animal killed” but i am a planet saver, because, if your convictions are so strong it make wasting & trashing socially acceptable, then i can’t stand by your side defending animal rights.

I stand for earth first of all, I try to be the flower that blooms in the concrete, i will be the Esmeralda of the cathedrals picking in the market trash, because what i do is not only for myself: it’s to bring sunshine into the street, to make you think twice about the “cover of my book”, to make people familiar and unknown realize money is not the answer.

Don’t worry, be happy. 

If you are in Paris, the dresses will be on diplay at Christie’s Auction House in Paris from 19 to 24th of January.

Eris: All Female Exhibit / KBB

I was a part of a great project last May in Berlin involving exclusively female artist for a one night only exhibition at the Urban Spree Gallery.

During the evening I was spreading the good vibes with some hand made “Døn’t Wørry Be Happy” fortune: “it’s up to you to make it good!” I was saying while distributing them. Some people seem to take less value in the words written when they saw the friend had the same. In truth the message is universal it does take away anything from the speech.

DØN’T WØRRY BE HAPPY

Enjoy Right Now

When I arrived here, it though I saw a old friend, like a mirage of myself. when i started thinking over the date of the last post I though to myself ”Ho it wasn’t that long ago, that I last wrote here. Spreading a little bit of truth and a little bit of dreams… 31th oct.. ”
That was 361 days ago.
In the meanwhile life happened.

Always working hard with The Chaøs Chrønicles, a life journey project that evolves with me and Him. Follow the journey on Instagram.

We couldn’t imagine this unexpected journey through JAPAN was going to take us so deep in the paradoxes of this amazing country.

We left to Japan 2 week behind schedule, with no plan & no budget.
7750km – 7 weeks on the røad. We filled up 29 memory cards and bring 500+ Gig of datas and unforgettable souvenirs.
Thanks to few contributors, friends & family support, we made it.

 

 

Summer times: Our private studio was opened to public after 13 years of secrets. The Avignon theatre festival was a good opportunity for us to create a word to mouth event attracting exclusive clientel and local. A One time opportunity to discover a interesting line up of artist, presenting exhibitions, conferences, talks, spoken word nights and more.

So much thing going on since Edinburg. The day after my return dad, our lovely assistante & I jumped in a planet to Berlin. There we made an Avant Premiere (private) at the SOHO house, a membership online club were I would really like to enter !

It went very well and with the high demand from a public eager to discover our project, we did a second Avant Premiere (public) thanks to Sebastian. We met very interesting and nice people how helped us in different ways and all of that great time led to a exhibition proposal ! Can’t complain, but it has been hard work !! Every day of this year, I spent it working hard on The Chaøs Chrønicles
