2nd Day of ASVOFF/last day of the Avedon exhibition at the Jeu de Paume

Dear Shaded Viewers,

If you are wondering why I’m not the one to write the review on Gareth, I’m waiting for Philippe’s report, it is because I was at the Jeu de Paume for the 2nd day of my festival. The Avedon exhibition ended today, it was a huge success more than 2,000 people a day and the last days had lines clear around the block. Maybe it was like that for weeks but I observed it during my festival.


Laura and Madeleine Czigler as they exited Masters of Style, two documentaries screened at ASVOFF on John Galliano and Alexander McQueen. The films received an enthusiastic reception from a packed house. Madeleine is the director and the producer of those two films. Designer Mich Dulce outside of the screening.
