WAR debut album by Palio Flaski


I created a cover for the band Palio Flaski (http://www.facebook.com/palioflaski) for their debut album WAR which was released a few days ago.. It's a unique mixture of punk, pub rock and ethnic music. I was inspired from their music and their rebel attitude.. You can enjoy a sample of their music at http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/war/id491427186.

Palio Flaski loves the delicate art of drinking with merry company,
blending acoustic Punk and alternative Pub Rock with Middle Eastern Makams.
In the warmth of a small room tries to put together a non existent scale that sounds wrong,
annoyed by the fat bastard who rings the bell in a church nearby…
Babe Jesus is sleeping.

ESMOD & LA FONDATION CARLA BRUNI-SARKOZY – FON DATION DE FRANCE, « Des acteurs de la mode se mobilisent en personnalisant des sacs en pièces uniques »


Dimitri Zafiriou

ESMOD SE RACONTE DANS SON LIVRE ANNIVERSAIRE,
« Saga de mode, 170 ans d’innovations »


ESMOD tient tout particulièrement à soutenir les jeunes talents, quels que soient leurs moyens financiers, à accéder à nos
formations. C'est pourquoi, conjointement avec la Fondation Carla Bruni-Sarkozy crée en avril 2009 sous l'égide de la Fondation de
France, nous avons lancé un programme éducatif sous forme de bourses scolaires, il y a un an déjà.
A l’occasion des 170 ans d’ESMOD, nous avons souhaité mettre en place une opération particulière mettant en scène tous les
acteurs de la mode.
Nous avons fait réaliser des sacs au format cabas en coton équitable couleur écru avec, sur une face, le logo des 170 ans d’ESMOD.
L’ensemble des personnalités ayant customisé ces sacs ont eu recours à de nombreuses techniques telles que le transfert, la
broderie, le collage, la couture…en laissant libre cours à leur imagination sur le thème suivant : « ESMOD, souviens toi du
futur...remember the future » fil conducteur de nos 170 ans.
Le prix du sac customisé (en pièce unique) est fixé à un minimum de 170€ TTC (hors frais de port et techniques) et l’intégralité des
recettes seront donc versées à la Fondation Carla Bruni-Sarkozy – Fondation de France.
Rendez-vous le 30 juin au soir pour la mise en ligne de ces sacs sur le e-shop du site
www.esmod.com


ESMOD's BIRTHDAY,
"Saga of fashion, 170 years of innovation"

ESMOD is keen to support young talents, whatever their financial means, access to our
formations. Therefore, in conjunction with the Carla Bruni-Sarkozy created in April 2009 under the aegis of the Fondation de
France, we launched an educational program in the form of scholarships, a year ago already.
On the occasion of 170 years of ESMOD, we wanted to implement a particular operation featuring all
fashion players.
We did make tote bags format equitable cotton ecru with color on one side, the logo of the 170 years of ESMOD.
All persons having customized these bags have been used many techniques such as transfer,
embroidery, collage, sewing ... giving free rein to their imagination on the theme "ESMOD, remember the
future ... remember the future "theme of our 170 years.
The price of the customized bag (in single room) is set at a minimum of 170 € (excluding shipping and technical) and completeness of
revenues will therefore be made ​​to the Carla Bruni-Sarkozy - Fondation de France.
See you June 30th in the evening for the launch of these bags on the e-shop site

DIMITRI ZAFIRIOU A/W 20011-2012


DIMITRI ZAFIRIOU collection for Fall / Winter 2011-12 is named «Le Dinner Surrealist» and is a reference to the surrealist movement and the artists who expressed it.
The silhouettes inspired by the 20s are adapted to today, combining vigor, femininity, sensuality, mystery and luxury.
The geometry of Art Deco, the transparencies that create the illusion of bare body reflecting images of Man Ray and the glow of handmade embroidery reminding heroines of Anais Nin’s novels, characterize the collection.
Black and White, dark blue, silk satin and velvet, silk georgette and tulle, wool and knitted fabrics, precious feathers, emphasize the drama of the era, creating the image of the eternal femme fatale.

Exhibition - Yohji Yamamoto at the V&A Museum 12 March - 10 July 2011


Yellow strapless silk dress and oversized coolie hat covered with draped silk, Yohji Yamamoto, Spring/Summer 1997


This exhibition explores the work of idiosyncratic and ground-breaking designer Yohji Yamamoto. Fabric, he said, 'is everything'. This deep interest in textiles is at the heart of his approach to design.

Yamamoto became internationally renowned in the early eighties for challenging traditional notions of fashion by designing garments that seemed oversized, unfinished, played with ideas of gender or fabrics not normally used in fashionable attire such as felt or neoprene. Other works revealed Yamamoto's unusual pattern cutting, knowledge of fashion history and sense of humour. His work is characterised by a frequent and skilful use of black, a colour which he describes as 'modest and arrogant at the same time'.

This retrospective, experienced through a series of site-specific installations throughout the V&A and beyond, includes Yamamoto's menswear for the first time. The main exhibition space houses over 60 creations and a multi-media timeline which reveals Yamamoto's wider creative output.

Yohji Yamamoto reflects on his thirty year career in fashion. In this 20-minute film shot in Yamamoto's Tokyo studio, the designer provides a laconic, engaging and sometimes passionate commentary on his career and design values. He considers how his work has evolved since his Paris debut and explains why he designs so differently for men and women, and also provides a withering personal analysis of the current state of the fashion industry.
