AUTHENTICITY

In this competitive and fast paced world of fashion we are living in, there are alternatives to getting dressed and stand out.

The solution is of course to slow down and take your time together with a dressmaker/designer to have your clothes designed and custom made, without compromising quality and savoir-faire.

It is not a cheap solution, but the clothes will last longer.

BONJOUR AND HELLO FROM MONTREAL

Just a minor update, to tell you all that I am still alive and doing my thing.
These days, mainly on Instagram and more permanently on this website.

I would love to reconnect. Hope to see you around. . .

PLEASE FOLLOW CONSCIOUSLY

Long time, no see. . . here on the blog. Hope you´re all well.

I haven´t really been able to maintain this blog, since I decided to focus on Instagram, which I find easier to update and maintain for now.

I will keep this blog open though, not to loose the content.
If you are new to this blog, you will find my personal opinion on various fashion related subjects and projects I have completed. Check out the labels and the menu for additional info.

But, I can´t help wondering a little as I am looking through some of all the Instagram-accounts. . .

-There seems to be this general urge to get as many followers as possible. There is people and companies who offer to help you and even online classes to do that, so you can monetize and become profitable. And apparently they are very popular. . .
But please be critical, because you can buy followers and some people really do. Think twice, because if they only have a few pictures, they are most likely not real followers.

Some people even follow, to unfollow. Check for yourself, if you search for them under your followers. I block them.
I´ve even seen moms, who are in charge of there young kids accounts, to promote and maintain their popularity and to get the attention they probably never had. I can´t help feeling sorry for those kids.

A lot of brands and celebrities are also very popular. I just hope they are conscious about what effect they have and use their influence in a good way.

What YOU should ask yourself before you follow whoever, is, WHY they are there and if you want to support that.

Ultimately you should follow your own dreams - instead of others ! What are your thoughts ?

On our way to the Rodin exhibition at Le Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal, we passed by Holt Renfrew and these fabulous window-displays. . .

HORST - PHOTOGRAPHER OF STYLE

This exhibition at the Musée McCord here in Montreal is a Must see for everybody who appreciate style and aesthetic. . .
Horst was a creative soul and one of the twentied centery´s most famous photographers.


As I went through this exhibition, I really could relate  to almost every theme and picture I saw.
I couldn´t help thinking how eternal style and aesthetic are. . . to this day, nothing is new - everything has been done before. It´s just a matter of interpretation and consciousness.

Even some of the designs of the "ancient" couturiers would be as contemporary today. . .

The exhibition was very extensive and organised into themes and periods of his life, staged in black and white, except the big Magazine colour-photos, staged in a more minimalistic white enviroment.

I couldn´t help, but take a few photo´s without violating any copyrights, I hope - to show you, what you´re missing if you don´t go.
