Lately, I have been hooked on watching short films especially on Dazed Digital. Sadly, fashion films have yet to become a genre as we still call Clueless, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Annie Hall to be the definitive landmarks for the fashion industry. I agree that they have been the pillars of Fashion Revolution but they cannot be called ‘fashion films’.
Try short films by Karl Lagerfeld, Tom Ford and Dior perhaps?
Anywho Dazed Digital features a Visionary section portraying short art films which have me addicted. Matt Lambert’s explicit series portraying provacative subjects really intrigue me. My favorite being Heile Gänsje exploring the theme of sexual identity of the Berlin youth.
Even at the midst of my exams, I have watched each film by him repeatedly and although I am a rookie on art cinema I think his themes can be traced back to the sexual revolution of the 60’s and 70’s epitomizing free love and expression has often interested me as a subject.
Since I haven’t blogged for a while, I also wanted to talk about Marc Jacob’s demise from Louis Vuitton. It was so sudden and unexpected that it really got me saddened as Jacob’s collection is always symbolic of creativity and individualism. By introducing apparel and menswear he lifted the brand into a global luxury project. His work will be truly missed.
Open Magazine, a weekly magazine in India, did a story on young fashion bloggers and featured me among others. It was an exciting project for Lace Grass Hues and the story came out lovely along with the pictures. I got some pictures for the blog so here it goes.

I guess from all these years blogging I have learned a lot chiefly being that you cannot really do something about your flaws instead of being proud of them. A normal individual will have bad skin, fat thighs or ugly hands but what actually makes you stand out from all is your voice. Being unique and creative is the only way to get you some credit and that is what is going to make you matter. Stop having dogmatic views and rise above the ordinary.
I should seriously get back to Vector Algebra or I will fail terribly.
