Old Work...

I was going through some old work... and I found this old gem! It was a shoot for a school project, called 'Waiting'. It was just that whole concept where waiting for the season to start in fall is the worst part... you just want to give'r.

It's Namtron on her rad custom-made lowrider before it was stolen last year. (Fuck you Igor.)


Who buys an SUV and then goes "I've got a great idea, eh? How's about I write 'B Cycle' on my licence plate so that while I'm driving around in my fucking enormous car, I can promote sustainable living and healthy lifestyles! Win win, eh?"

Speaking of actually doing something....

"If McCartney is the sustainable movement’s It girl, Pinault is the It boss. "

On-line bashing....

Now, DNS has had some critics. That's cool. Constructive criticism that has firm foundations is a fundamental part of our society, and how we can better our world. But for the rest of the anonymous stupid hating...

London Cycle Chic

It's not very often I find a new blog that I want to read everyday. I spend alot of time on www.finalfashion.ca and of course I love to read Showstudio and Diane Pernet. But I just found a London cycling blog called London Cycle Chic that has all of my Great Blog requirements: good pictures, a sense of place, lots of links and magazine article scans and it's own look. I think I have a new blog crush...

TED Talks

"What does the blogosphere actually do for us in terms of accessing collective intelligence?... The premise of the wisdom of crowds, is that under the right conditions, groups can be remarkably intelligent, and they can actually be smarter than even the smartest person within them."

James Surowiecki pinpoints the moment when social media became an equal player in the world of news-gathering: the 2005 tsunami, when YouTube video, blogs, IMs and txts carried the news -- and preserved moving personal stories from the tragedy.

And this is feakin' cute.

I LOVE this article on Style.com

Hahaha... the article is bitchy about environmentalism! Sweet! That's my kind of environmentalism, not some fuzzy earth mother shit- more of the kind of environmentalism where you make fun of people for being dumb and tacky if they don't get sustainable design, and how aweosme it is. *Sigh* love it... when fashion truly meets environmentalism...

p.s. packaging sucks. Nancy Regan got it wrong- "Just say no to PACKAGING."

Lagerfeld Lady

Last weekend I was unfortunately down for the count with the Fashion Flu that seemed to originate from Evan Biddell's after-party. On Monday I missed an event I was really looking forward to, which was the video launch for Fritz Helder's new video, Lagerfeld Lady. Karl Lagerfeld is one of our fashion heroes, and I am so sad that I missed a great looking party...

Here it is for you to love. Their first single, Making a Scene, is a Nightshade theme song...

On that note, my frist fray into fashion parties involved this group. I was fresh on the scene, 1st year fashion school, volunteering for Vintage 69's opening party at the Social. They put me in a gorgeous vintage fur coat and glossy red MAC lipstick, and I got to do guest list. Fuckin'-eh... the POWER. Half-way through the night Fritz jumped out of a trunk and the group danced and sang on top of the bar. I was stunned. I was in love. I still am.
