ATELIER8/02

EARLIER THIS MAY I WAS INVITED TO SEE THE WORK OF AN AMAZING SUSTAINABLE FASHION LABEL CALLED ATELIER8/02.  FASHION DESIGNER MAYA A-KAADAM SAYS THAT THROUGH HER ETHICAL FASHION BRAND SHE "WORKS WITH GOLDEN HANDS FROM AROUND THE WORLD".

SPILLING BEAUTY SECRETS

I GOT A DM THE OTHER DAY ON IG FROM A BEAUTY WRITER ASKING ME TO “SPILL” MY BEAUTY SECRETS.  I NEVER REALLY THOUGHT I HAD ANY AND I ALWAYS GAVE CREDIT TO MY HAITIAN GRANDMOTHER EDITH AND TO MY MOTHER NADIA FOR THE GOOD GENES (THEY ALWAYS HAD DOPE SKIN).  ALL THIS TO SAY I’VE PULLED THEM OUT FOR YOU, MY SECRETS. PLEASE DON’T TELL ANYONE...

Azzedine

Found these beauties created by the late Azzedine Alaïa just after Christmas at the newly opened shoe boutique at Bon Genie here in Geneva.  I consulted my long time and lovely friend Amber Khan of The Quietest Revolution on them, among other items.  Looking forward to working with her on our next project.
