Now that the olympics are finished we see the market shaking up and every week there seems to be a big brand having a fashion show! Why i'm leaving i don't know other than some times it's not about the money, it's about your feeling. I've been under a lot of stress and i really need to relax and be near people who care about me. Have a break before the next china fashion week in november.
Finished up business meetings until 2am and then came to home and packed. My roommates were waiting for me at the club but i could not make it. The all came home slightly hammered and we had the long talks and saying good bye's. Grant will still be there when i come back unless he goes to tokyo, ivette who has not booked a job in one month and half booked seven days highest paid Dior makeup job will still be there, who knows what Thais is doing, maybe meet her in Milan. You never know in modelling where you will be next or with who but really i have to say our flat is the magic flat. Every time great friends roommates and fun times. It was not an easy time for me this time cuz of personal hardship but my flat mates helped me a lot! We got skype, we got facebook, we got phone and sms so we are set to keep in touch. You'd never believe all the things you can say in an sms. You can send the greatest love and even break someone's heart in 160 characters. What i think though is that nothing can replace the human touch. You never really know how will be the situation until you are face to face looking in each other's eyes again. Maybe something you thought was lost is still there stronger than ever, or maybe something you thought was something you felt for no other before is no longer there. Fantasy and reality intertwine in sms land and you can have a close relation by skype for sure. But 3D is a whole other call. It was nice to have their hug's and kisses good bye for now. The world is so small for glocal people. Everything goes 360 in fashion.
Stopped this weekend in the street by a young guy who wanted our autograph desperately for his t shirt, we obliged because it was for a cool blog project. If was determined to get one person from every country to sign his t shirt. America and hungary already taken, he asked us to sign anyway. Talk about innovative marketing! I wonder what will be the reach of my brand on this boy's shirt and blog!
Yes, they are all over the world and we went to meet them. It's very rare that you have a magazine casting but for sure if you do it's impressive. Hurry up and wait is always the name of the game so make sure you bring some entertainment or good tunes to your castings.
I used to have blonde short hair it's true so on my shoot this weekend it reminded me what it's like to have short short hair and light color. Wigs can be lots of fun to wear for a day, and give you a break from your own image. It's fun to be someone else for some hours. I think more people should 'go incognito' to a party or nightclub as part of their dress for the evening.
We went in a group and the tech was really snapping away. So many story photos and views. The empress went wild and extravagant. I always enjoy the colors that are used to paint with. The red, blue, gold, green are harmony and strong regal colors.
This weekend we took a trip to the summer palace near beijing. The palace is so much bigger than in the photos we saw online. I really understood how the empress spent the countries coffers on such a beautiful estate. The banished her for it and if not killed her cuz she made the entire country poor for her pleasure. It's a beautiful space that was burned to the ground twice by allied forces. Now it's only a rebuild of what it was but it's certainly a place to put on your list of must see in china. This and Lama Temple are the two places i'd recommend. Of course the Emperor's palace holds great memories for me too.
