Exhibition

Hi,
Time to time, nice to visit London and catching up with friend!

It was minor complaints, there was unexpecting payment for my hand luggage with Flybe…
I had to pay extra £35, because they have smaller capacity in the craft compartments.
So, I just sent my suits case back with carrier on the way back home, that way is far more reasonable.

Exhibition that unmissable was Dior in V&A.

It was fantastic to see all his work from the Princess Margaret, to representing following designer like,Yves Saint Laurant, Gian Franco Ferre, John Galliano…
I am so grateful to have fantastic fashion friend who is always kind to me to be around since my son was baby.
If I could visit Stanley Kubric exhibition @Design Museum, it was a great bonus but when we visited the tickets are all sold out…
It was good excuse to see “Clockwork Orance” once again!

According to my phone, I was walking 10000steps everyday, visiting exhibition is certainly healthy things!!

Meal @Akira in Japan House in High street Kensigton. Saikyo fried Salmon rice bowl with bento box!! Salmon was marinated in Saikyo miiso and fried, so great flavour and moist with crispy outside! Grilled eel is great in Hot Summer. add grated wasabi, and nori and pour stock tea to enjoy 2nd flavour.

Mitsumasa Anno exhibition @ Japan House He was a school teacher, and from his comment for his student picture diary. Kind and humorous comments show his soft caractor…

reflection magic! 3D art works by Mitsumasa Anno.

Item important in the story…

Just I started reading ” L’Amant ” by Marguerite Duras again…
Book has been translated in Japanese.

In the story, I couldn’t ignore,,, she is talking about ” Hat ” is very

significant in her memory.

” I got a hat, there is no farewell with it. That can re-create myself….
I have a pair of shoes, I felt the same to those, but my hat is far more special….”

I just translated in my way from Japanese translation to English… but Sometime, I feel hat has exactly same way for my style.

I hope I can serve those special hat to the clients all the time.

                                                     The Lover                                                                  The Lover (French: L’Amant) is an autobiographical novel by Marguerite Duras, published in 1984 by Les Éditions de Minuit. It has been translated to 43 languages and was awarded the 1984 Prix Goncourt. (from Google search)

 

P.21 talking about her outfit especially about “Hat” 

 

Show off your style!!

When I design clothes, I always finish off with the hat/headpiece 🙂

I have to try each photoshoot with a different look, but I have used the same outfits for different occasions.

You know one outfit can transform the completely different look with the hat!!

These are the example of how the hats and styling make different!!
With fantastic model Mhairi Waddell (15), she can show the same outfit with different HATs to show off!!

Mission…2

Dressing up…
Dress code, and formal dress…
There are many rules…

I don’t have any formal occasion to attend…but

My first experience of formal was an award ceremony of
Worshipful Company of the Feltmakers millinery competition at Mansion House.
I didn’t have any evening dress as a foreign student.
My mum was very happy to make and send it to me from Japan to London, and my boyfriend (husband) had to hire the kilt.

Recently I am a fashion designer who designing and making outfits and hats together collections.

I think safe to say my background is millinery.

It is a long time ago, but time to time better to mention this rather than sleeping in the file 🙂

Turning 50, my right shoulder is getting painful even though I do my regular exercise every day.
I visited my doctor and he reckons better to see the physiotherapist.
My doctor is very dandy and his background is Royal Navy.
He dresses very neatly ( Tweed 3 piece with tie or bow tie and matching pocket chief )  and I have to mention all the time.

He said dressing nice makes people happy. 🙂
I totally agree.

People dress nicely to make people happy is very good for the environment!
So relax people. if you feel nice, that shows!!
I am happy to help to make you happy, that is the doctor ordered! 🙂

Fashion brand? Collaboration is non stop!!

Fashion…..there is no more brand credibility?!

There are licensing and branding…

As a designer, all of them need to care…

Marketing, sales…also need to know…If you can do everything yourself, you will be great in the fashion business.

Because the world changed for the lifestyle, Buying style, big fashion brand need to consider their way of marketing!!

Hat off for the genius business mind!!

I would even run to the H&M for these 🙂

I like creating things for the customer who needs their own style…..Just letting people know if you need some help! 🙂 x

Just thinking about the fashion…..

Hi,

It was great to showcase my designs in Edinburgh kids fashion festival 22nd September 2018.

https://www.facebook.com/kidsfashionfestivalinternational

It has been a long time to decide on the venue…
I had one opportunity that I was really looking for that had to cancel for the great reason.

It wasn’t anybody’s fault, just as it happens sometimes because we are not selfish!!

As a designer, people think you should be aiming for Paris Fashion Week for where all the best buyers gathering.

But in my mind saying, it is not my venue…

The reason why I was thinking that way because I really don’t want to go into the trap in the bad wheel of the

fashion industry.

The big brand is just wasting their energy for producing new, but same time burning them,

to protect their brand credibility.

I would rather serve my energy to people who need for. Waste not want! 

So I feel good when I did my show in Edinburgh with part of Cancel Cancer Africa Charity show with my dear friend

model who should shine in the huge stage like in the Cinema, or Paris Fashion Week!

The background is my fantastic models who walked the catwalk at Surgeon Hall with Edinburgh Kids Fashion Festival International. White Dress with headpiece is my beautiful friend Mhairi Waddell. In gold outfits is Layla Burns both did fantastic job actors/models talented girls who have a bright future!! Image by Anne E Milne

Hi,

Starting blog entry again!! I will keep up! 🙂

Yesterday we were planning to see the family then going to the cinema as a family day out…

But end up, we came home and watching the video after seeing the family.

Anyway, the film that we were thinking to see was ” Incredible 2″, so we decided to watch the original “The Incredible”.

We all love “The Incredible” !!

Story and Characters are wonderful and never dated because we watched tonight original one.

There is a strong designer character called “Edna Mode”.

Edna creates all the super hero’s costume! And they are very functional!! and she has a strong character 🙂

Her character is modeled by Edith Head.jpg Edith Head.

Edith designed all the beautiful film costumes for the beautiful Hitchcock actresses/actors and golden time Hollywood films.

She designed for – Elizabeth Tayler, Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn…. So many beautiful actresses!!

She got a job as a designer ( She borrowed her classmate artwork to get the job!! 😉 in Paramount pictures until her 70’s and later

she joined Universal and worked until 1981 of her death (84)…that is incredible but she must be very powerful and energetic for her job.

Her later jobs are…..The Sting, Colombo, Bewitched,,,,,

I admire her jobs so much even now and her determination of work!! 🙂
