As unexcited I was about the beginning of Term 3 yesterday as excited I am today. Yes, I am back in Uni and not only they surprised me with a very busy schedule, but we also had 4 (and I am not kidding) guest lecturers in one day (seriously why couldn't they do this the previous term... and the term before???). But my absolute favourite one was Alex Fury (!!!!). When I heard he is coming in I almost fell over my chair. Just a bit of the background - he is the fashion editor of The Independent and one of my favourite persons in the fashion industry at the moment. Since I started to get obsessed with showstudio.com I have admired his honest and strong opinion. I mean in the world of fashion where everyone is talking only flowers and rainbows, he serves some great opinion and is not afraid to put it out there. This has made me to want to high-five him for a long time or at least shake his hand which I managed to do today (!!!!!!!). No seriously I believe a structured critique is more than necessary in order to evolve and grow and a compliment is needed where it is deserved. This is exactly what he serves with his extended knowledge and great passion.
But now quickly lets talk about the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibition in Barbican which in one word it was EVERYTHING. I was overwhelmed, inspired and full of admiration. Have you seen it yet? If not then I swear it is worth it! I went there with bunch of friends and Asel included, whose super cool earrings I couldn't leave
not photographed unnoticed! I know you have seen it before (because it is soooo coooool!) But, you know, I wanted to salut its coolness one more time!
