I have a lot of people say to me, “I’d love to know what goes on in that mind of yours”. I take this as a compliment. I don’t like to spill the beans but I will say this – It’s a bit of …
…. weird meets dark meets twisted meets quirky meets humour meets fantasy meets innocence, meets delicious love.
These are just a few running themes I’ve played with all my life, in my work and when I’m creating. I’m fascinated by artistic visions. From a vision, themes are found, embraced, played with, thrown away and even nurtured. If you are an artist, be you a designer, painter, actor, writer or musician you can relate to that constant need to create. To be alive. To imagine. To visualize. To be scared. To be challenged. To be boundless. To execute. There is nothing more satisfying than seeing it all come to life. Your “vision seed” was planted and you’ve watched it grow. Now if only that money tree would.
I’ve been smitten with Parisian clothing designer, Vanessa Bruno. Before launching her first clothing brand in 1996, Vanessa worked as a model, singer and actress. She had collaborated with designer/filmmaker Stephanie Di Giusto in designing clothes for short films. This particular film, “le bel ete” is my favourite. It stars, Lou Doillon , french model and actress with music & cameo by pianist, Chilly Gonzales. I’ve became a huge fan of Chilly after seeing him in concert with Feist. Yes therefore I have a huge talent crush on him. Call me crazy but I’m human, not in humane. I’ve fallen in love with this video. It’s child like, emotional, fun and beautiful. I can only imagine her collection looking just the same. – CS
