ELEGANCE OF THE HEART

 

“Without elegance of the heart, there is no elegance.” Yves Saint-Laurent

A recent event in my life made me think about a topic dear to my heart that I like to call the “elegance of the heart” and more precisely between women. Quickly, I sadly noticed that some women have the bad habit of judging each other, gossiping, telling lies, always wanting to be in competition with other women. Let me tell you something, IT IS JUST SO INELEGANT, a perfect way to “unlady” yourself.

WOULD COCO CHANEL TAKE SELFIES?

 

This question occurred to me when I was talking with a fashion designer friend Susan Dimasi of MATERIALBYPRODUCT about her future campaign.

I previously introduced Susan as a fashion designer and real lover and admirer of Chanel when I wrote about participating in her selfie campaign. Selfies have become a big phenomenon and why can’t we use this selfie fashion to introduce a collection.

And suddenly we were wondering what Coco Chanel would think about social media? Would have she created her hashtag #Cocoandfabulous or #forgetthehashtagIamCoco? Would have she tweeted her new collection? Or would have she been more adventurous and started a blog by sharing her thoughts about all the fashion faux-pas she encounters?

A DATE? DO YOU KNOW THAT FRENCH DON'T DATE?

 

How are relationships in Melbourne made between men and women?

When I came to Australia I was single, ready to explore the Australian world of singles and let me be very honest with you to enjoy this period of my life. So I used this time of my life as a period of research and investigation to understand the complexity of a relationship. However, my life is much more simple now. I found my perfect Man and as a French woman, I totally needed to have a man with a European background to simplify my life. Let me tell you that my single life in Australia on my arrival was far from being simple yet it was definitely funny sometimes. Now, I listen the stories of my French single friends and I was quite relieved to hear that I was not the only one to be intrigued by a relationship between a man and a woman in Australia.

ENTRE SUSAN DIMASI ET MOI...

 

The first time I met Susan was during one of her presentations at her atelier de couture (fashion workshop); I was immediately captivated by her professionalism in every detail. The sweetness of her words, the rhythm she used, and the elaborated vocabulary made me feel like a piece of fabric in the hands of a fashion designer creating art. I was totally in confidence and could have stayed all night to listen more about her work. I was imagining the sewing needle waltzing, wondering how a humble piece of fabric could be turned into one of these beautiful dresses that she made. Determined to learn more about Susan who started her brand MATERIALBYPRODUCT in 2003, we finally met again.
