After this short trip to Beijing I can now take a breath is privacy and think back upon the week. Beijing, a growing , living, and breathing city with a life all of it's own. Fuelled by the constant need for economic expansion which directly influences it's landscape, one of the fastest growing cities in the World, yet, it still retains cultural styles and ideologies long thought forgotten. Or, in the case of the west as other cities have grown have left behind their origins and adapted fully to Modern life.
I would not say this is bad at all, if anything there is something to be said for cities which can still retain its original culture. Beijing itself has such a diversity also as any big city, yet the blood line of it, the veins if you prefer this analogy is the people themselves. It must be said tho, what a crowded city. Walking dow the streets in the middle of the day you stay shoulder to shoulder, marching onwards and onwards. At times aimlessly.
It was such a Honor if I can put it as such, to work with HUGO BOSS Black (fashion show also) this time. This show had all the hallmarks of a glamour event that would no doubt surprise me in many ways, and this is did in ample amounts. What most I likes about the show is how much class and style it had, and how, wherever I turned I meet someone interesting. This is what makes such an event, well....eventful. For me it is always an "experience" to go to an event, or a show, exhibition, gallery e.t.c Each I treat the same, which childlike excitement and energy. Talking of energy, the designs Kevin Lobo has plenty of this, it was clear in how he talked about fashion and design. This person exudes passion for what he does, as did Matthew Goode and TIda Swinton. It was very exiting for me to meet all three of them, and others of course.
The show started off very male Orientated, as Hugo Boss is famous for, then it crossed over into the women's fashion, which displayed a great sense of rhythm threw out the night in terms of the quality of the clothing line. The more the show went on the better it got (even tho I was in desperate need of sleep)and I found myself enjoying it more and more as did the other people around me. The show was about Glamour, elegance, and it still somehow was able to infuse into the line a sense of Futurism. It was such a great experience and there is nothing I can say negative about the show, if I try to find something as such, nothing can come to mind because of how fun it was. In my own words to my Boyfriend when he asked me not long ago "Did you really enjoy the show?" Of course I said "That was really an Amazing show". I replied to him half asleep, but you get the idea. Only wish to experience it again.
Now, I have to finally have some well deserved sleep and start fresh tomorrow!
