The Zeitz Museum Of Contemporary African Art, or Zeitz MOCAA, opened its doors on the 22nd September 2017 and held its grand opening to the public for free until the 25th. The museum currently houses the largest collection of contemporary African Art in the world. It is an amazing space and showcases the latest in art from all over Africa from current artists that explore topics on identity, politics, society and history through a variety of visual and aural mediums.
Before leaving Seoul, I made sure to check out the latest fashion exhibition by Louis Vuitton. The exhibition called, Volez, Vougez, Voyagez was held at the amazing Dongdaemun Design Plaza. Travel and fashion are 2 things I absolutely love. So Volez, Vougez, Voyagez was the perfect exhibition that combined these 2 popular lifestyle trends.
A friend of mine had won tickets to see the Shelby House exhibition at the Daelim Museum in Jongno, Seoul. She kindly invited me and another friend to be her guests, as we are all art lovers. So one hot, muggy and humid Sunday in Seoul, I met with my friends and went to check out the exhibit.
I saw adverts for this exhibition all over my social media 2 months ago. The Mademoiselle Prive promotions combined cool character animations of Coco Chanel and a look through her design process. The process of how Coco Chanel came to build her brand and how the current Chanel still uses her history to define the brand today, is what keeps the brand moving forward. The Mademoiselle Prive exhibition has come to Seoul, and is being showcased at the D-Museum. I went to check it out over the weekend.
We are swamped with photographs of the famous and not-so-famous all dressed up in their finest, hoping to be featured on the “Street Style” pages of all the famous magazines and blogs around the world. There is practically a show before the show.Living in one of the fashion capitals of the world gained me the opportunity to see what the buzz was about surrounding the start of a fashion show!
In Paris, the streets will be blocked off just to accommodate the fashion shows, usually causing a traffic jam and making drivers take alternative routes.
I found myself freezing my toes off waiting in a super long line for a free exhibition and party at the Musee Palais de Tokyo in Paris last year In February 2015. I had only drove by the museum, but was never inside it. By suggestion of a friend, I decided this was my chance to finally see it. Plus, It was totally free! The event was the “Le Bord des Mondes” (The Edge of the World) exhibition which questions whether things that aren’t traditionally considered art can actually be made into art.
I LOVE David Bowie. All who know me know this. He is also one of my fave and biggest fashion and music icons! So, on this chilly Spring day, I ventured across Paris with my friends to go to the Philharmonie De Paris to see the current David Bowie exhibition.
I was super lucky to attend the Who’s Next Fashion Expo in Paris this weekend, thanks to the wonderful Ms. Lecaro from Ecuandino Hats from Ecuador!
Who’s Next allows designers and fashion apparel brands from all over the world to come and display their wares to new potential buyers looking to stock their stores and boutiques with all the latest and greatest on offer.
So a few weeks back I attended the annual Manga and Science-Fiction convention held in Paris, France. Best thing was that it wasn’t too far away from my home, and I could easily walk down to the event.
It was full of cosplay and comic book enthusiasts who flocked by the masses.
