Week 11
March 13 – March 19, 2023

On Monday I participated in a Newfoundation/Newforum panel on Defining Transmedia Fashion with my friend Tony Wang and Sam Walker. Thankful for an inspiring and insightful conversation!

Tuesday we met with photographer Pauline Scotto Di Cesare in her studio to talk about her upcoming Present Shoot with fashion designer Tareet. It was great! It’s so good to see contributors in IRL, even if only once.

For the upcoming upgrade of the Present website I indulged myself in technical explorations, building a new and highly adaptable cms system, subtle animations and a dark-mode-switch, which was fun. I’m getting closer to soft-launching it👀

On Friday we went to see the Faith Ringgold black is beautiful exhibition at Musée Picasso ~ and it was really phenomenal. Afterwards we headed to Belleville and went to a small gallery for the vernissage of Hôtelissimo.

I never had better ramen than on Saturday night: Kodawari Ramen Tsukiji ~ amazing experience and highly recommended.

Sunday we went to the 1997 Fashion Big Bang exhibition revolving around the most important year in fashion, shaping the business and aesthetics until today. It was so fascinating, we read every single text of the whole exhibition.

My Paris Tipps from me and Sarah:
Jah Jah By Le Tricycle (fantastic Jamaican food, vegan)
Haikara (another great izakaya)
• A Jean Nicot (our favorite original bar-bistro, ran by a really lovely older couple)
Fréquence (dance bar)

Other input this week:
Film: Le monde est à toi
Film: Everything Everywhere All at Once

Vocation at its deepest level is: ”This is something I can’t not do, for reasons I’m unable to explain to anyone else and don’t fully understand myself but that are nonetheless compelling.” ~Parker J. Palmer
