Yup, I think I might have a thing for bunny ears…
Jeanmaire was a close friend of the designer. They collaborated together a few times and she modeled for him.
I haven’t seen the documentary yet, but I can’t wait to watch it.
Yves Saint-Laurent fascinates me. He had a terribly hard life and died of a very tragic illness, but he was also an inspiring character and one of the most important designers in the world. He created the first tuxedo for women, he created the first ready-to-wear line and he was the first designer ever to use ethnic models on runway shows. This was a man who was born in the thirties, by the way, completely ahead of his time.

♥ Yesterday was Thanksgiving

Even though Europe does not celebrate Thanksgiving, this makes me happy for two reasons:
1) It reminds me to be thankful for everything I have and for everything I have achieved.
My life is going through some major changes at the moment, and even though some of them are difficult, I am thankful for them. Change is always for the better, right?
2) Thanksgiving also reminds me that in exactly ONE MONTH it will be Christmas. Yay!
I love Christmas. It’s by far my favorite time of the year. This year it will be slightly different from the usual: I am going to Brazil. After almost 20 years away, I am going to spend my first Christmas and New Years over there. I don’t know what to expect but I’m very excited and looking forward to it. Though I’m sure I’ll miss the cold weather and the European feel of Christmas: it’s cozy and pretty special. But like I said: “change is always for the better”, so bring it on!
Have a beautiful weekend, everyone.
Lots of love from Lisbon.
♥ I’ve been missing London like crazy these last few days.
Ever since I left, I usually go back there at least 2 or 3 times a year but it never seems to be enough.
London is one of the most vibrant cities you can ever come across. It’s a city for those who love cities. Not for nature-lovers or the faint-hearted. I find it so inspiring though. It takes my breath away every time I go there.
♥ And speaking of London…
This week I produced illustrations for an article about the 3rd Fashioning the Future Awards that took place last week at the London College of Fashion.
I was asked to sketch two of the finalist dresses. Here they are:
Fashioning the Future is an initiative that awards innovation in sustainable fashion design. It’s a very cool project. It promotes the use of environmentally friendly processes and materials in fashion, which is inspiring and an enormous challenge for the designers.
Check out the full review of the Awards in Amelia’s Magazine.
And have a brilliant Thursday, everyone.
