Bill Cunningham?

“Looking at these collections. I look for what I think a woman could wear, would wear, and whether it would fit a human body, other than the model. I’m very attuned to that. If it isn’t something a woman could wear, I have no interest in it.”

From his documentary:

The Times of Bill Cunningham | Official Trailer


“The wider world that perceives fashion as something frivolous that should be done away with in favor of social upheavals and problems that are enormous. The point is, in fact, that FASHION. You know, in the point of fact, it’s the armor to survive the reality of everyday life. I don’t think we’ll do away with it. It would be like doing away with civilization. You know, that’s what I think”

“-How is it different shooting here(Paris) than in New York?
-Fashion week here is exceptional.
-Why?
-It educates the eye.
-Paris?
-That’s right. That really comes with fashion, but that’s what happens. Every six months it’s like going to school. You have to come back and reeducate the eye.”

“-and you see all the paparazzi going crazy?
-oh, yeah
-Over Catherine Denueve.
-I can hear people say, He’s gotta be the dumbest on in the crowd. He didn’t other photographing her. Well, she wasn’t wearing anything interesting. I’m intereted in clothes. And even if I knew them, knew who they were, and usually I don’t, I don’t go to the movies much and I’ve never owned a television. I’d never be a paparazzi. I couldn’t be. The tormenting people that chase them. Oh, that I couldn’t do. I wouldn’t do. I think it has to be done just discreetly and quitely. Invisible, I think, is the word.”

“This is the greatest subject in all of Europe. Madame Piaggi…I photographed her outside Saint Laurent’s couture show, mixed in with all the other women that were trying to be so chic with their pantsuits. It was a revelation. I mean, I never saw anyone like her. I think she’s a poet with clothes. But a very fine poet. To me that’s the reason to come to Paris.”

“When I photograph, many people think, “He’s crazy! He only photographs clothes” But that’s what we’re here for. I’m not interested in celebrities, with their free dresses. That’s C’est pas important. At least look at the clothes. The cut, the new cut, the lines, the colors, that’s everything. It’s the clothes, not the celebrity and not the spectacle. It’s as true today as it ever was.
HE WHO SEEKS BEAUTY, WILL FIND IT”

Odio hacer ejercicio, odio el sentimiento de querer bajar de peso (I hate to do exercise, I hate that feeling of wanting to lose weight)

Desde hace unas semanas, diria meses o tal vez años he tenido problemas con el subir y bajar de peso.
Esta idea a ido creciendo con el paso del tiempo, pero es algo que he tratado de ignorar por años, aunque obviamente como todo lo que ignoras en la vida no desaparece y es algo que simepre te acompaña.
Desde que nos subscribimos al gimansio ha sido mi constante lucha, ir o no ir al gimnasio.

Relaciones Públicas Avanzadas Curso en el FIT / Advanced Networking: How To Go from Just Showing Up to Really Rocking the Room

Sólo quiero vaciar la experiencia que aprendí en un curso de Networking que tomé en el FIT (Fashion Institute of Technogy) . Lo dio Sharon Feldstein, ex-alumna de esta escuela, que actualmente radica en Los Angeles. Aquí una foto de ella con su hijo en la entrega de los Oscares:


Tiene mucha experiencia en el mundo del ShowBiz pues me atreveria a decir que empujó a varios de sus hijos al lugar que ahora ocupan. Uno de ellos es el Manager de Marron 5, así que ya se podrán imaginar:






Además ella fue la creadora del famoso celular rosa de Sex and the City:





Esta historia nos lleva a su técnica de promoción, supo cómo posicionarlo en el mercado gracias a que vivia aquí en Nueva York y a través de la escuela de sus hijos pudo ponerlo en manos de otras personas famosas, de una forma muy casual y con su estilo relajado y amigable.

Hay puntos muy específicos que mi cerebro captó de este curso y deseo compartirlo con ustedes:

  • No importa ser tan especifico al final si el proceso y los resultados son los deseados “It doesn’t matter the number at the end”
  • “Always ask what you don’t know” Que la verguenza o el miedo no te detenga
  • “I am who I am. There is no competition because there isn’t nobody like me”
  • “Just show up” Don’t cancel a coffe late, it could turn into a job. Don’t say you are too tired to go, you never know who you’re gonna meet. La autora participo en #yourmomcares, Public Service Annousman. Pero la parte que yo agregaria es que NO lo hagas cuanod realmente no quieres pues todo es perfecto (preguntatelo dos veces a ti mismo, si quieres o no ir, pues un no es valido)
  • “Stand up for yourself” “Make youself hear” Di lo que piensas!!
  • “Don’t be afraid of reinventing yourself” No tengas miedo de los cambios y reinventarte a ti mismo.
  • “When you did something unique use it like a tool of netwoking”
  • Always do social first after networking
  • Kardashian, they show up, networking, never give up
  • How to start meeting people? Go to parties, Wework, Meetup
  • Get off line, It’s better in person.
  • Don’t give up
  • Cry to be creative
  • Not everybody is your customer


Espero que les funciones muuucho, dejen sus comentarios.

Con Cariño,
