Boudicca : CO1: Forever-A Dream Sequence

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Boudicca presented their first couture collection

I am not preaching economy to you. I am talking about Elegance. You think you are refined becase you are indistinguishhable from others. YOU ARE NOT. Be unique. Poiret


“Is it an imagination or a reality to stand in the rays of a sunset for seven hours? Did we ever understand the intimate affair with her second skin, a dress built like a machine for living within? Study, Serve Become.”

“Do you own a certificate of Presence that includes the necessity of Absence?”


“An endless landscape changes and develops in front of us. A simulation? An endless set of possibilities, of everything becoming everything. We can dip into its waves and swim deep beneath the ocean in a way that is more wondrous than we have imagination for, BUT…there is none that deserve the future until the moment is revered.”





2005 Conclusion of acceptance speech for the Nobel Prize.
“When we look into a mirror we think that the image that confroonts us is accurate. But move a milimetre and the image changes. We are actually looking at a never-ending range of reflections. But sometimes a writer has to smash the mirror, for it is on the other side of the mirror that truth stares at us.” Harold Pinter

So ends Paris couture week. Tomorrow starts the men’s.
