lift off

My funny relationship with film has returned to its honeymoon phase – I used to love making short films when I was younger, grew to hate the gruelling process of lugging around heavy camera equipment and the inevitable problems, and now I once again I can’t get enough of it. The process has paid off – my first fashion film got accepted to the London Short Film Festival!

Have a look at the full lineup from the Fashion Popcorn event. Thanks to the guys for hosting the evening and I’m mulling over an idea for my next film.

a tale of two blogs

I’m lovin’ life with Tumblr these days – have a look at my blog there. I’ve fallen hook, line and sinker for how easy it is to use for visual references and a hodgepodge of things you come across. It’s hard to resist just reblogging cat photos but I’m doing pretty well so far…

going for gold

It may be a little on the nose to talk about London 2012 and inspiration, but here we are. It was a summer of inspiring a generation, taking the stage and even Tom Daley’s little thing.

Aside from working like the dickens at American Apparel King’s Cross, I felt pretty far from reaching any personal bests. This week, however, I started my MA at London College of Fashion and after only two days I feel like I’m really going for gold.

So far it seems like the dream. A positive environment with amazing resources where I can study what I love. Amongst the overload of starting something so new in a city I’m still settling in, one word has come into my head and perfectly sums up my attitude in this early stage – tinkering. This playful, positive and inquisitive word. I see myself tinkering with words, ideas, productions and spaces – trying to figure out what I want to focus on and where my starting block is.

basic space

I had notions that if I ever started writing this blog again I would firstly have to feature a comprehensive WHAT HAS SINCE HAPPENED post which is terrrribly daunting. So instead let’s turn these notions into potions and just write about here and now.

Here, now:

I live in London and love the city. Parks and parties galore. But now spending time at home, way out in the countryside, I realise how important space is to me. Basic space. Going for a walk and not seeing a soul gives you space to sort out your head and feel truly relaxed. Being somewhere natural you can forget any commitments you have and feel free. I felt like a big slug sitting on a rock and who doesn’t want to feel like a big relaxed slug?

I’m home. This sums up what I miss about NY:

And THIS sums up where I am now. We are on Google street view! Holy moley. OH SO QUIET.

a gaga mirage

There comes a time in every young man’s life when he is not sure if he saw Gaga or not. I was dropping off at Nicola Formichetti’s studio today for V and saw this lady, who I believe may well be Lady GG:

Ha, I’m bluffin’ with your muffin. I saw nobody in a full Alejandro get-up. But what I did catch a glimpse of looked a little like Gaga and it would make lots of sense that she was there, being so close with NF and all. Whether it was her, or a Gaga mirage, I couldn’t help but feel dmcg and lady gg were getting closer to their inevitable MONSTER MUNCH*….

V ♥ NY

V Magazine September 2010 (a.k.a how I sweated away my summer) has launched. I can’t look at a single fashion story without being reminded of the tears, tantrums and tit-tape involved. But OH! How beautiful it is. And fittingly, it’s the New York Issue. With two whopper, whopper covers…

It’s a hefty book with neat editorials, interviews (even Woody Allen makes an appearance!) and this great quote that best sums up V, this issue, my time in NY, and my approaching departure…

There really is nothing better than a good ol’ yarn/munch.  The ladies behind Daydreamer, a new Irish e-zine, know this well and have put together THIS NICE LITTLE NUMBER:

I wish beyond wishes I could tell you to turn to page 32 for the WILD EXPOSE/BEST READ, but the best stories are scattered throughout the mag from an impressive variety of perspectives. My fave thing is how local and homely some of it feels. The article on page 46 made me long for the Irish motherland, while the golden oldies piece could warm the grumpiest of grumps. It all makes me want to hug my local old bodega man. Twee in the very best of ways.
