Dior x Harrod’s exhibition, 2013.
We went through the rooms within 15 minutes. 15 minutes spent well. First off, we were greeted by a giant doll-house, we saw a film projected on to a giant book, also there were giant arm-chairs and the very famous dior bag, those two were also giants and being projected at. Did you spot the pattern? ^^ Last but not least, there were probably about 1000 Dior bottles all over the floor, which made me want to have them all. Pretty good perfume-advertising, I would say.. If you haven’t seen the Dior x Harrod’s collaboration yet, have 15 minutes spare, like pretty shiny things, and being sucked into another world whilst feeling like Alice in Dior-land, then you should definitely go!
P.S. This is the very famous Dior bag:
Never have I been able to watch the Oscars at a normal time. For instance, this time I saw the Oscars from 10.30 pm till 4 am in the morning.. A row of anything liquid containing caffeine will be placed in arm-reach beside me (to save me from sudden sleep attacks), just like a hamster would stuff seeds into his cheeks - just in case it gets hungry.
My Oscar love:
My favourite part of the show are the winner speeches. The winners are thanking everyone else but themselves for what they have achieved, it is so touching to see someone get rewarded for their efforts and talents… Heartbreakingly lovely that is!
Spotting the worst- and best-dressed actresses! The glitter, glam, gold, silver, silk, omg.
Even though Catherin Zeta-Jones did not win any Oscars for her acting, I sure do give her gold for her dress!
New film online! Here are some stills!
It’s a fashion film for my dear friend, Vina Jung from Korea.. When first we met, we were models infront of the camera, shooting an advert for a jeans brands. But now 1 year later, I live in London, I’m behind the camera and she is designing the most gorgeous lingerie sets, rocking the Korean press scences! Her lingerie have been recently featured in many Korean Fashion Magazines, like Marie Claire, Nylon, Allure, Cosmopolitan, Elle, Vogue, see the whole gallery here.
I feel big time proud, that I got to collaborate with Vina!
Here is the video, I had the most amazing team to create this piece and also many thanks to www.studiophotogallery.com for their perfect studio!
Pixie Geldof, Rita Ora and Cara Delevingne posing for the photographers. This is British Fashion Awards 2012
The Savoy Hotel, where the British Fashion Awards 2012 took place.
Some big car arriving at the Savoy Hotel..
Hello Dita von Teese!
Stella McCartney, designer of the year and Hollywood actress, Amber Vaeletta. Captured on my friend’s phone.
Me, in the lounge, reflecting on tonights experiences.
After the awards, everyone is walking around with their goodie bags…
We almost missed it! All of a sudden it was 6.15 pm and the invitations underlined that you have to arrive on time. We got ready in fast-motion, grabbed a taxi and arrived at the Savoy Hotel a little too late. Luckily, they did let us in…
The show was on for approximately 1.5 hours and it was strictly prohibited to take photos or videos during the actual award show… However, my friend Aram did sneak in some video stuff, haha!
I think Stella McCartney who won both the Designer Brand and Designer of the Year Awards, made the best speech. Salma Hayek presented the Designer award and she didn’t even open the envelope, she was so confident that Stella won (I guess she already knew ^^ ). Stella shared an early story about how she quit her job in Paris to become a designer in London, and how her boss directly told her that a woman will never make it as a luxurious designer brand. Well, she has worked so hard since then and has proven her ex-boss wrong!
Another amazing speech was made by the Central Saint Martin professor Louise Wilson OBE who won the Isabella Blow Award for Fashion Creator. I loved how she underlined that CSM isn’t the best, there are loads of other great art schools in Great Britain. Of course, many great designers have graduated from CSM like Alexander McQueen, Christopher Kane, Jonathan Saunders & Roksanda Ilincic (Red Carpet Award), but she shared that there are many bad, untalented CSM students out there as well!
By the way Jonathan Saunders who was one of her students won the Emerging Talent Award - Menswear. I was really happy for him! Did you know that he also designed the green/red pattern/prints for London Fashion Week S/S13? If you attended LFW 2 months ago, then you will definitely remember those patterns. They were everywhere, on the press passes, the front hoardings of Somerset house, the flags, the posters, etc. I know this, because I received the high resolution vector files from Mr. Saunders to create the LFW animations back then :D The little geeky things that make me happy…
Let’s talk more about the girls.. Aram and I got into a room where all the celebs were hanging out before they went into the official press-room. Don’t ask me how we got there, we honestly just followed the stream and asked for directions, showed some purple ribbon on our way and then after endless staircases and hallways, we were stuck in a room without any internet connection, but oh! is that Stella McCartney? And am I just using the same bathroom as Alexa Chung?
Rita Ora who also sang the final 2 songs at the Awards was hanging out with the Model of the Year Cara Delevingne, they looked like close friends going to a prom party or so, goofing around and having so much fun. We also came across Pixie Geldof. She presented the Award Style-Icon of the year who was again, one of her friends Alexa Chung. She now lives in New York, so Alexa mentioned that she felt deeply honored to be voted British style-icon of the year, 3 times in a row by the English people, even though she has left the country.
I could go on and on for ages, thank-you British Fashion Council for making this amazing night happen!
There are so many stories to share, but just check out BFC to see the entire list of the winners!
I hope you look forward to seeing the video that we will make as soon as I have finished editing my other film…!
P.s My personal highlight of the yesterdays night out was finally having my picture taken in front of the Oxford Circus underground sign. Finally, after walking past it for nearly 1.5 years! ;)
