DIESEL -F/W 12 by Steven Meisel

Here’s another Steven Meisel shot from the new Diesel campaign. If you couldn’t tell from the picture, Dae Na and I listened to old Elvis tunes the entire time these pictures were being taken! As part of my campaign with Diesel I was invited as the guest of Diesel founder Mr. Renzo Rosso to the relaunch of the brand in Brazil last week. Mr. Rosso is a very smart man who also wrote an interesting book on being really stupid (Go HERE). He gave me a copy which I just started reading, and I think I’m going to like it!

That wasn't a dream...

I am no doctor, but I have to say that my heart has been pumping the most this year. Every week there something new happening to my life, there are times where I have to actually have to pinch myself to make sure it’s real. For example this week, Nicola Formichetti, Renzo Rosso and Diesel took me to Venice, Italy!!! * heart still pumping loud*

 I think no one expected how this trip was going to actually go. But Oh and they surprised us good! 

I knew about this trip over a month ago and it never set in that I was actually going. I have been so busy with the million other things that a trip to Venice didn’t calculate in my mind until the week before. If you think that Disney is a magical place what you definitely haven’t been to Venice Italy. I brought my computer and cellphone because well we are so used to technology so we take it everywhere we go. The funny thing is that for that week I didn’t use either of them. It was only me and my camera soaking in all the beautiful architecture, people, and sites!

John Galliano will work for Maison Margiela Menswear. Also he is working on a women’s fragrance, which will be released by Margiela’s beauty partner, L’Oréal, in 2017. Renzo Rosso also gives an indication as to the financial ramifications of Galliano’s takeover – revenues are up by more than 30 per cent, proving that the designer is as popular with the clients as he is with the critics.

BRAVO JOHN!!!

Since joining Maison Margiela in October last year,John Galliano has debuted four collections for the iconoclastic fashion house, all infused with his theatrical flair. In a new interview for WWD, Renzo Rosso, president of the parent company of Margiela, discusses how the house has changed since the instalment of its new artistic director.

“It’s another company now. You can feel the energy inside, it’s unbelievable,” says Rosso. “It was really necessary to hire someone for the next step because Martin was someone who changed the rules in the fashion industry.”

As well as discussing the change in atmosphere, Rosso confirms rumours that Galliano is working on a men’s line, which will be debuted in mid-2016. While Margiela has debuted two collections of men’s apparel since Galliano’s appointment, the level of his involvement wasn’t clear. 

That said, the designer’s women’s ready-to-wear and artisanal shows have starred male models, though the models in question were dressed in the same attire as their female counterparts. Galliano’s fans will no doubt be excited to see how his vision for Margiela translates into menswear.

Later on in this interview, Rosso reveals that the designer is working on a women’s fragrance, which will be released by Margiela’s beauty partner, L’Oréal, in 2017.

Rosso also gives an indication as to the financial ramifications of Galliano’s takeover – revenues are up by more than 30 per cent, proving that the designer is as popular with the clients as he is with the critics. 

“For me, creativity must be free….This is the key to success,” said Rosso, expanding on his decision to let Galliano interpret Margiela’s codes as he saw fit. “Because if you say, ‘You have to do this and this and this,’ you never succeed. With creativity, you can build a company. Without creativity, you cannot build a company.”

While the profit margins and show reviews pay testament to Galliano’s success, so does the founder of the house, Martin Margiela himself. “I’m so happy you chose a couturier to drive the maison,” he said, according to Rosso, who went on to say, “Martin said to John, ‘Make it your own.’”
