"I am a design junkie, an addict, I have compulsive design disorder, I am a design pervert, a fanatik, a buff, a design freak, a design zealot! I am a cultural shaper, i am a cultural editor, I am on a democratic design mission, I create, therefore I am"

Karim Rashid's Latest design for Kenzo - Jeu D'Amour

Karim Rashid's work is really awesome be sure to support him. I saw him at the Istanbul Ataturk Airport , he's really nice and funny! 

I have a confession , he reminds me of myself. If I had a male twin he would be as close as it gets..lol

I'm always pushing myself . I work best under pressure and i don't buckle. I always have to plan for the next. I move very quickly because my brain is super active. If you think you are the best and you give 110% It's perfectly fine to say "I'm The Best" . Every challenge I surpass gives me confidence (no haughtiness ) and the strength to succeed the next! InshAllah:)

"A poet, musician, and graffiti prodigy in late-1970s New York, Jean-Michel Basquiat had honed his signature painting style of obsessive scribbling, elusive symbols and diagrams, and mask-and-skull imagery by the time he was 20. “I don’t think about art while I work,” he once said. “I think about life.” Basquiat drew his subjects from his own Caribbean heritage—his father was Haitian and his mother of Puerto Rican descent—and a convergence of African-American, African, and Aztec cultural histories with Classical themes and contemporary heroes like athletes and musicians. Often associated with Neo-expressionism, Basquiat received massive acclaim in only a few short years, showing alongside artists likeJulian SchnabelDavid Salle, and Francesco Clemente. In 1983, he met Andy Warhol, who would come to be a mentor and idol. The two collaborated on a series of paintings before Warhol’s death in 1987, followed by Basquiat’s own untimely passing a year later."

Bloomberg Travel and Luxury


Luxury is More Than Money


The News Redefined


Have you strolled through luxury? Often belittled into the depth of monetary equity, we see that it elevates past that superficial title into a regimen. It requires culture and maintenance, ripened through the relentless education of humanities and possession. Possession of the materialistic, as well as the intangible: of veracity, entitlement, flexibility, and wealth. It renames the pessimistic attributes of aristocracy from their ill-conceived bitter reputation, to their pure form of philanthropic love. Ownership at it’s finest point –compassion and knowledge. If luxury flourishes from the pride of transcendence, then it privileges itself away from ignorance by enlightenment. 

There is nobility in all emotion, but often the only immortalized are from solemnness, despair, and melancholy. Allow Bloomberg to show you the other side; of nurturing euphoria, and experiencing the world.

So readers, stroll on. Enlighten yourself!

Korean Festival


Traditional Korean wrestling Hangul: 씨름


"Ssireum is a sport quite similar to Japanese sumo. While the two athletes try to push the other out of the ring in sumo, ssireum athletes use various techniques with their legs, arms and torso to bring the other down on the sand."

By Lee Sang-jun

                               
                               
                        
                            
                              
                                     
                                      
More than three decades ago, hanboka traditional form of Korean clothing, was very much a part of every Korean's wardrobe. Like all clothing, hanbok also changed over the years with fluctuating fashion trends. Hanbok designs underwent many changes throughout Korea's turbulent history. The hanbok we wear today are reminiscent of the late Joseon Dynasty (early 20th century).
In traditional hanbok design, curved features are important. As they are not meant to be tight fitting, the inherent beauty of hanbok is apparent in its elegance and style created by the abundance of material. The curves and vibrant colours of hanbok have had a significant impact on the Korean fashion industry. By combining traditional dress with modern fashion, a series of fusion hanbok designs were introduced. Designs and patterns of hanbok have even been applied to architecture.

PASTAZA A FILM ABOUT THE AMAZON FOR PEOPLE WHO CARE


"PASTAZA illuminates the reality of the indigenous peoples who live in the Peruvian Amazon, in zones of severe contamination resulting from almost half a century of oil exploitation. This film chronicles their struggle for well-being and the determination of their federations to raise the voices of their people, demanding justice."

Turkish Yemeni Organic Leather Slippers

La Résidence House O' Luv



Modern vintage flare furniture 
There's plenty to adore!
Each time I visit a furniture store I think to myself, I have to get the hell out of here! And that's why I haven't done much decorating.
But before winter, I’m looking for an autumn reform: guessing this is what a romantic residence is supposed to feel like. And when your friends and family come over saying "THIS SPACE FEELS SEXY," you can smile in admiration.
Now that's the reaction I'm looking for.

New York Garment District

“New York’s reputation as a global fashion capital is under threat with the city’s once bustling garment district facing extinction, experts say.”

Juki LU-562 Walking Foot Needle Feed Industrial Sewing Machine


What a beautiful sewing machine!I'm looking to invest in a great sewing machine which has  a strong engine. When I was 12 years, I use to sew with my grandmothers during summer break. She taught me how to sew dresses and coats. We use to go to fabric stores every weekend and spend hours looking at book patterns. She taught me how to iron, which to this day I avoid. She had an old statelessness iron. I really wish I had one. Perhaps I'll find one at a resale store:) Whenever I purchase electronics and machines I always read reviews,warranty policies and refund policies.
