Dear Shaded Viewers,
I was so touched by the article in Variety about ‘Crip Camp’ CoDirector Jim LeBrecht in his custom made Gucci suit that I could not resist posting. Please read what he has to say about how it made him feel wearing his custom made Gucci suit and flower shirt. Shout out to Sinead Burke, disability rights activist that I was happy to meet through BOF and to her introducing Jim LeBrecht to Gucci. https://variety.com/2021/film/news/crip-camp-co-director-jim-lebrecht-gucci-oscars-1234959968/.
Everyone looked great in Gucci but how could you not be moved by Jim LeBrecht’s personal story. On another note I was super happy to see Daniel Pemberton, British Composer and dear friend of my friend Mark Eley aka Eley Kishimoto on stage performing and dressed in Gucci. We several times years ago with Mark as he always worked on the soundtrack for Eley Kishimoto shows.
