Bonjour/Bonsoir

Bonjour/Bonsoir √člodie - Illustratrice de France, Paris

You can tell she's French, eight? By the natural free lines...by the overall free-spirit of the illustration! The hair, the wind, the girls, the silly but sexy faces...the felling of a hot autumn even when it's summer outside. All the things that give me a need to drink good wine, eat great cheese and dance the night away!

Anyways, I just thought it would be nice to end the year's first month with some inspiring images. So breath-in the soft colors and get ready for February!!!;)From: Colagene

Shots of 'Party Education'

We did shots of 'Party Education'!

Yeah! One after another and another. The camera went snap! snap!, the model moved and I just kept the dresses rolling! I just can't wait to see the end result.

We did the shooting at the Atelier, because of the weather and the time pressure. All the collection will be sent tomorrow at We Love Couture, were you will be able to buy it (pretty soon).

I, for one, had a great time! We make a great team...although we lough non-stop. But that's a plus, isn't it?! Fashion is Supposed to be FUN! So, until I get the images, enjoy a few shots I managed to take!

Collection: Party Education - the 5 rules of party

Party Education - pictures on mannequins

Here you go!
Just pictures of the Party Education Collection on white, soulless, fleshless mannequins...

I'm showing you the collection before the actual photo-shoot, because it already went public last night. We had a fashion show, at La Mouche Society Club in Arad. And you know me, I think it's only fair that you can also get to see it!

But more on the show tomorrow, when I'll post some images.
Hope you all have a lovely Sunday (here it's all white and sunny). Remember to be good, drink lost of liquids, spend time with friends, use moisturizing cream and just have a great time!From: Atelier Arina Varga

My Creepy Staircase

The title says it all.
Really now!...

It is just too sad. My beautiful, light and bright and happy Atelier is in one of Arad's more popular buildings...that is just being left to decay! Nothing is being taking care of. There is no light and people expect persons like me to do all the cleaning (and we do what we can...)

Creepy at night!!! Just like in a good horror, every time I return here during the night, my fist action is to turn on my little flashlight. Click! And then I go up the stair being able to see only what the small light allows me to! Nothing much, but even that is enough!

You can't imagine the horrible things that run trough my head...or maybe you like horror movies as much as I do and then you probably can! :)) But, no matter what, I love this building! :)

Sorry about the crazy post but I just got really frustrated today with the staircase...eh, we all have our moments I guess. ;)A view of the building's inside yard (now that it snowed):Images: theFword

Feel For Me

Imagine a jacket.
Not a special one. A simple one. It keeps you warm, makes you look a little cool...does what an ordinary jack does...AND MORE!

What if this jacket could communicate your felling to others? What if this jacket became part of you (knowing how you feel and what you want to do)? This is the project of canadian industrial designer, Lorea Sinclaire. A jacket that does all that!!!

About it:
The wearable device uses symbolic language to communicate a need or receive a notification. For example different touch gestures imply different meanings. Doing up a button will send out passive signals of your location. stroking the discrete lining of the hem will send out a ‘friend call’. A combination of two hands swiping the outer arms implies you need serious help.
This user interaction utilizes embroidered conductive thread as touch sensors, and an integrated GPS module to send out location.
The user receives feedback whenever someone nearby signals. a gentle vs. a strong pulse of vibration will denote the volume of presence of friends nearby.
Pretty cool, right?
Now, sorry for just copy-pasting the text. But I'm not much as far as technology goes and why would I make a better description then the designer of the project?! :)
Even so, I can admit liking it a lot...but I'm not sure how much good can it do. Aren't we getting to exposed already?! We live our lives in the open and I'm afraid this sort of this is just too much for me. Maybe it was high-time to draw the line!

But I do like it! :P

Black Cat on Friday 13th

Before I start getting ironic and so on, believe me when I tell you I am a superstitious person. Yes...I'm into all that mambo-jumbo, but at the same time I can have a laugh at it. Strange enough...

Today is Friday. Friday the 13th!!!
Any other Friday would be just a Friday. But because of that 13, everything is different, with a twist, crazy!!! Now, I had luck today. A brick almost landed on my head but I managed to get away from it. Smart move! But as I slipped to the side of the sidewalk, a cute black cat got scared of me and cut me off!

Taaaa-dammmm! As I said, I am a superstitious person, but when it comes to black cats I take a stand! Come on!!! they are so cute and elegant and...shinny!!! So, I decided to investigate on this whole black-cat-issue! The result:

Good things:
• In Britain, on the Yorkshire coast, wives of fishermen believe that their menfolk will return safely if a black cat is kept in the house.
• A black cat in the audience on opening night portends a successful play.
• In the south of France, black cats are referred to as matagots or magician cats. According to local superstition, they bring good luck to owners who feed them well and treat them with the respect they deserve.
• In the English Midlands, a black cat as a wedding present is thought to bring good luck to the bride.
• A cat sneezing is a good omen for everyone who hears it. ~Italian superstition
Also sings of good luck:
• Possessing a black cat.
• Having a black cat greet you at a door.
• Having a black cat enter your home.
• Meeting three black cats in succession.
• Touching a black cat.

And on the down side...

• Meeting a black cat early in the morning.
• Having a black cat turn its back on you.
• Scaring or driving away a black cat from your property.
• Walking under a ladder after a black cat has walked underneath it.

Well, well, well! What do we have here? It looks like more "+"s then "-"s!!! OK!!! I was focusing on the bright side of it all! :)
By the way, did you notice that this post is no.13, on this month?
Mwahahahahahaaaa!From: text 1, text2, images...from all over!

Muy Tranquilo

Today, let's take it slow
Let's visit our parents after work...
...or even our grandparents.

Let's dream, eat delicious food, drink worm drinks of caramel wishes, walk around the city surrounded by our very own wool scarf...let's listen to great sounds that make our heart beat to a different rhythm. I want today to be muy tranquilo.

i FALL

i FALL...
i FALL...
i FALL in love with the Givenchy pre-FALL 2012!!!


Oh...this is just love at first sight!!!
The cuts
The colors
The fabrics
The boots!!!
The decor

How??? How? I ask you!
How can it be all perfect? Is Ricardo Tisci a genius? Must be, because that's the only answer that makes any sens (I'm also considering the fact that he might be from the future).
Anyways, I'm happy. My eyes are happy, my brain is excited with new and perfect visual information! But...I WANT MORE!!! From: Highsnobette
