What would the planet fashion be without Vivienne Westwood? This world-known British stylist responsible for bringing modern punk and new wave fashions into the mainstream…
Essential design elements include the adoption of traditional elements of Scottish design such as tartan fabric while her collection is inspired by punk accessories: safety pins, razor blades, bicycle or lavatory chains on clothing and spiked dog collars for jewellery, as well as outrageous make-up and hair.
Amongst the more unusual elements of her style is the use of historical 17th and 18th century cloth cutting principles, velvet, knitwear… The use of these traditional elements makes the overall effect of her designs more shocking.
Are you inspired by modern punk? Want to buy a tartan bag or the latest shoes of her collection without spending more than on an H&M shopping excursion? Are you in Paris this coming Thursday or Friday?
Well, I have this very unique and exclusive invitation for two, to participate in the bi-annual Westwood sample sales, where you’ll find no line or rush but great bargains in a beautiful apartment turned into a store.
The deal? If you are available tomorrow end of afternoon to get this invite in Paris, drop me an email … First-come, first served… or the best comment on my youtube video related to my (second) best job application… not sure yet!

The Dalia and Rose concept store just opened its doors and is the first ethical multibrand concept store in Paris. Launched by former model Clélia Moretton, the shop gives us a new vision of fashion in an ethical way. The store promotes organic materials, 100% hand-crafted materials, new designers, ethical jewellery.

A brief interview of Clélia in her store

Clélia has tracked down a brilliant selection of up-and-coming labels including Camilla Norback, a Swedish designer working with organic silk, Leaf, a recognized brand when it comes to organic cotton, Aqua the sustainable jeans maker, Pachacuti, which claims to sell the world’s first fair-trade panama hats; jewelry by Nikki Butler, a South African designer whose intricate beaded creations, under the label Nikki b, have already been snapped up by the likes of Cameron Diaz and Britney Spears. Dalia and Rose also has a large range of accessories hand-made by fair-trade co-operatives in Bolivia and ballerina flats that have been ethically sourced . Clélia searches for the right products by travelling and participating in all the ethical and fashion fairs. Her choices are always the result of personal choices and “coup de coeur”.
The idea is to make the shopping experience at Dalia and Rose good for the environment as well as you’re wardrobe, from 20 to 300 euros. Future months will be about opening the online store and developing the men’s range.

Don’t get me wrong, if some of you consider it as the second best job. I see it as the must have job, first among all!

Spotting the new concept store, the latest trend, hear about a funny gizmo and search for it, enjoy the smell of a discovery, apprehend a new technology, get clued on what to wear by observing, searching, looking and trying, taste a new cuisine, learn about new music and books are what make my hobby.

I am passionate about discovering new cultures and understand various living habits as well as consumption behaviours. But, above and beyond all other consideration: Pass it on! I am not aware of any better satisfaction than the one to share. My PC is close to explosion as it is full of videos and pictures I made over my free times everywhere I went and lived.

As for my job, I’ve worked in the PR and marketing sector for the last five years which made me become quite a juggler. Hopefully, not in the classic “clown-at-the-circus” sense!!! but as it relates to thriving in an environment when I’m juggling task after task in a limited amount of time.

I’m so anxious to parlay this experience into this job and I need you to make it real! You will find on this blog info, homemade videos, pictures to help you choose me… Yes, I can search for the best deals, the latest trends, compare, buy and share with you!

Yes, I can buy!
