Happy International Women’s Day

Happy International Women’s Day

Something to keep in mind while we are celebrating our mothers, sisters & female friends. Many of you will have seen ‘Oppressed Majority’, the short film by ElĂ©onore Pourriat already (more info in this article on The Guardian). And yes, it is a bit exaggerated (I don’t mind topless joggers & I don’t mind staying clothed while jogging – alone for reasons of comfort and practicality.

Natural Tripping

No, this is of course not a post about magic mushrooms & co. I think it is safe to say that I am the least knowledgable person about that.

The British Fashion Awards 2013

The British Fashion Awards 2013

There are already enough articles about the winners, red carpet outfits and celebs at the British Fashion Awards 2013 out there, so I will just point out three highlights of the truly enjoyable evening. 1. Tricia and Terry Jones The i-D Magazine founders, who won the ‘Outstanding Achievement Award’, seemed to be as nice and down-to-earth as I imagined them to be. I highly recommend to read the interview with the two founders in COS magazine. 2. Edie Campbell’s Acceptance Speech Edie decided to dedicate her award to someone who has been by her side during the past… more
