chris march is the king of haLLowEEn 2013




 

          

          We are almost six weeks away from Halloween, and I can surely confirm that the king (or should I say queen? ) has been already crowned. That’s right,with his fabulous foam wig collection available at Target stores, fashion and costume designer Chris March is the 2013 King of Halloween in USA.

          The wigs can be already found on the stores and also on Target.com, you can choose from eight different iconic looks: afro, geisha, starlet, medusa, greaser, monster bride and mohawk. They are very reasonable priced in $20 or less. Super fun, colorful, light and big, they will be an absolute hit this season.

           On the promotional video below, you can watch Chris March and make up artist Dale Johnson demonstrating how awesome a final look with wigs can be achieved. So cool !

           Chris March was a contestant on Project Runway-Season 4, he also was the star of his own show ” Mad Fashion ” about his creations; besides having created pieces for Prince, Madonna, and among others also Lady Gaga…Chris had the privilege to have dressed Meryl Streep for the Golden Globes and the Oscars….super amazing !!

freakchic logo by bridgeTTe bad






            Multimedia artist Bridgette Bad (BornBrightDesigns.Com) doesn’t disappoint ever. She is responsible for the new Freak Chic logo. I couldn’t be happier with the simple and to the point combination of the F and C letters, and with a bow tie version for those festive seasons.
             Bridgette had also created both sites for Gazelland.com (the very first and the present one), and all the banners for FreakChic.com. She never fails to understand what a customer wants. And believe me….I am not easy !

        What do you do when you are in London, and you need a spectacular, classy, classic, vintage, glamorous, sophisticated or one of a kind shades/eye wear? You simply go to Oliver Goldsmith store. A family business which started in 1926, and to this day still goes strong with the best quality available pieces in the market.
          So, I followed my friends Neandro Ferreira and Gary Howells ON their successful search for something amazing at the Olive Goldsmith store in Notting Hill . They were assisted by PR and store manager Zoe Cosby, whom I like to call me “newest” best friend , she is just superb !!

         After Neandro and Gary selected their beautiful glasses, Zoe tooks us downstairs to the memory lane of OG. From Peter Sellers, Princess Diana, Ursula Andress, Nina Simone, Michael Caine, Princess Grace, Audrey Hepburn to John Lennon (granny glasses)  among so many others, beautiful and famous faces all with Oliver Goldsmith eyewear pieces. What a lovely afternoon !






“I don’t believe in those theories about certain styles suiting certain shaped faces. Life is too short. If you find a shape you like have it and never mind what anyone thinks.”  (Oliver Goldsmith 1965)

give me delfina deleTTrez anytime






     This beautiful cross is perfect for the Christmas season, also it is perhaps one of the most simple pieces created by designer Delfina Delettrez, who is behind very dramatic creations mixing surreal art and glamour. I absolutely love her eye shaped pieces, and she has made me appreciate more the gothic style. Delfina was born in Rome, and she is the daughter of French jewelry designer Bernado Delettrez, her grandmother Anna is one of the Fendi sisters.

the awesome wave pavilion

      Macdowell.Tomova is a young design team based in Detroit and Zurich, it is formed by Parke MacDowell, Diana Tomova and Boriana Tomova. So, together they created the Wave Pavilion which operates as a piece of landscape furniture. It is located in the University of Michigan(Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning). It works as a place where students can met for discussion groups or perhaps a private reflection. The genius in this piece relies on the precise fabrication and assembly of its constituent elements, I mean it was necessary to design and build a CNC rod-bending device that operates in tandem with a multi-use 7-axis robotic arm to shape the pavilion components. Yes, very complicated but at the same very simple!
