I know you are all busy finding the last Christmas gifts and booking your ski holiday right now...But within four months the weather will get warmer and instead of covering us with gloves, coats and scarfs, we'll be wearing shorts, tees and sandals and enjoy the weather.
Here are some inspirations for the next season from the last Paris fashion week and some comments by the greatest personalities of the fashion business.

Inspiration - Faux Fur






Glam meets clear coscience: faux fur is one of the most glam trends of the season but also a clever way to praise the beauty of animal fur without causing the murder of such beautiful animals. I love the idea and I love to wear it. You?

Black Beauties



These are my new black beauties.
The clutch is vintage and comes from Fizzen in Zurich. I like its simplicity, the quality of the leather and the fact that it goes for both day and night.
The messenger bag is from Zara and it is a gift for my birthday (thank you thank you thank you again ladies :D!) and it has become my new loyal everyday chap.
Welcome to my closet beauties!

Volunteering as Dresser for the Charles Vögele Fashion Days Zurich 2010: Impressions



This morning, I worked as dresser
in the backstage of the Charles Vögele Fashion Days Zurich 2010 show
dedicated to the upcoming Swiss designers.
Since the organizers of the event made clear that taking pictures was not allowed, and respecting their policy, I'm not going to show you any photos, I'm afraid. Not that I had the possibility to take any! I wasn't even able to take my camera with me!
However, beside my obliged abstinence from my camera, helping Patricia (the model I was assigned to) change clothes, lacing shoes and fastening dresses, making sure that she was wearing the right shoes for the right outifit and running after her to make sure everything was the way it was supposed to be was a truly funny, interesting and new experience I am glad to have done.
In the backstage, during, before, and after the show, I had the opportunity to have a taste of the ambience during such an event as well as to actually become aware of the amount of work that has to be done during a fashion show.

The designers that presented their collections were

Aleksandra Wisniewska http://www.aleksandra-wisniewska.ch/base.htm (very feminin!)

Aluar Balagan http://fashionslave.ch/menswear/ (experimentalist, fascinating, for those who dare)

Toujours Toi-Family Affairs http://toujours-toi-family-affairs.com/ (such a cute collection! With a touch of love for vintage)

Redley Exantus http://redleyexantus.com/ (Such a nice person! Probably my favorite collection of today's show!)

and Portenierroth http://www.laboutiquevolante.com/ (my second favorite, sexy sexy sexy, great patterns and great cuts!)
Check their sites out, 'cause at least one of them is going to be a big name!

All in all, it has been a great enriching experience which I would be happy to repeat!

Andy Warhol Exposition at Kunstmuseum Basel


Today, my love surprized me with a beautiful gift by taking me to the Kustmuseum Basel to visit the exposition entitled Andy Warhol: the Early Sixties. Paintings and Drawings 1961-1964.
Warhol is definitely one of my favorite artists. His interest in mass consumption, the media and the basic question about the true essence and function of art make him one of the central figures of the postmodern visual art and philosophy.


My new book on Warhol's art. Can't stop leaf through it!

Here are some of the paintings that are being exposed at Kunstmuseum Basel:



Liz as Cleopatra
(Terrific to me!)



Flowers



National Velvet



Double Elvis

Loved it!

Fashion Days Zurich 2010



Next week (11.03 - 11.06.2010), Zurich is going to transform itself into a fashion capital.
Famous designers and lables such as Alexander Wang, Bally, Aubade and Missoni will be presenting their collections in the heart of Zurich West, the hypest place of the town.
Part of the program are also the finale of the Fashion Days Model Challenge of the TV channel Prosieben, an Upcoming Designers Show, the Swiss Textile Award and the Annabelle Award.

I'll be working as volunteer during the Upcoming Designers Show. I don't know my task yet, but I'm so happy to been given the chance to help out with the event! I'm afraid I won't be able to take my camera with me as I don't think they allow the staff to take their own pictures during work. If I'll be able to make any pictures, you can be sure they'll appear on the blog ;)! In any case, I will certainly at least write about my impressions on the event :).

A big collective kiss!
