1/ The Show
Yesterday I modeled for Keisuke Nagami, the young japanese designer wearing a wristwatch necklace (see older posts - "The White Rabbit").
The show took place in his fashion design school, and he made me wear an artpiece of his which left very little to the jury's imagination.
As me and the other "models" approched the runway, the girl wearing the wedding gown asked me how could I be almost naked in front of strangers.
The answer is to be found in my respect for an artist's vision. How could I wear an imaginative deconstructed jacket with an old bra showing underneath? No way.
I just had to grab a Martini (or two) and do it, proudly giggling as I was displaying this unbelievable item in front of people from Chanel and Sonia Rykiel, among others.
Of course Keisuke was not the only one showing off his work. Yesterday I had the chance to meet many young talents and I got plenty of contacts to prepare some juicy interviews for you guys.
In between, let me introduce you to Elin Lejelind, fashion designer, pictured here wearing one of her creations, a drop-dead cute bat shirt.
I want it, I want it, I want it, I want it.
Did I make myself clear?
As soon as I get back from Los Angeles I will interview her to show you more of her work, as she hasn't a website yet.
In between, if you want this shirt as bad as I do, you can email her - but you'll have to wait a little longer - 'cause girlfriend's gonna do mine first!
2/ The Trip
As for Los Angeles, words cannot express how excited I am.
It's going to be my first time in L.A., and I'll be visiting two very stylish girlfriends of mine and yes, I'll be posting tons of new pics.
(Is a shooting on top of the Hollywood Hills too cliché? Who cares! Americans always take their picture en bas de la Tour Eiffel!)
So prepare yourself to meet the uber-stylish Constance Astbury, fashion designer and my very personal muse and Rachel Reynolds, a talented young actress/dancer whose hilarious misadventures you can read on her blog.
Now it's time for me to prepare my luggage. I plan on taking very little with me, as I know I can't help but splurge when I'm on holiday...
I am flying Air Zealand. When I booked my ticket, I got to choose my menu and it took me half an hour because they have more choice than the Savini's.
Of course my session expired. Ha ha.
Isn't it a ironic this shirt with some sort of wings on the back, right before I'm flying to the city of angels?
