Today is the last day of the ASVOFF7 festival at Centre Pompidou. We pay homage to the master Alejandro Jodorowsky and his amazingly talented family. We will present the Advanced Style for its Paris premiere and Social X Rays a doc on Roxanne Lowit. Author of her latest book Yves Saint Laurent and 3 other books Backstage Dior (the John Galliano years) and Moments and People. Roxanne was my neighbor in the West Village in NYC for 13 years.
We are giving you another few months to take our breath away... Polimoda x ASVOFF are asking you to submit a film with the brief, one of the 6 themes: HUMAN BODY (Body), URBAN SPACE (Space) , IMAGINATION )Imagery), WRITING (Calligraphy), CREATION (Craft), CLOTHING (Dress) - 1-3 minutes.
I love clothes that are as comfortable as lounging around in your pj's and no one masters this better than ma-deshabille. You can live in it, you can sleep in it, what ever you want and it is always just right for you.
