Just came across a post on DP's blog (the other DP:)) about my fellow finalist from ITS 5.
Heaven Tanudiredja, a Jakarta born designer and a really sweet person, as far as I remember. His collection was one of my two favourite ones from the final show (the other one was Aitor's).
I remembered (well everyone did) his wonderful name, which really suits him. He was named Heaven by his grandmother.
Anyway, he's doing jewellery as well as fashion, and he's doing both with excellence.

Widows and Soldiers in the april issue of W25 Magazine

Martica just woke me up. At 12.30h (WTF? is a question to myself :) With awesome news. Sorry Martica, for me not acting the way I usually would (screaming out loud, heheh), I first needed a coffee to come to my sense. I scream now.
Our fashion story is published in W25 Magazine, a nontraditional publication dedicated to streching the boundaries od selfexpression in photography, illustration etc. available online and in printed version.
I realized this very moment that actually, we are on the cover of this issue too!!!!! Goodness, I better slurp my Ethiopia real fast!

Klik Sof Ab Fab Jonty Scrufffy Portoroz

I know I've been slack lately with my blog writing. Hell, I've been ignoring it completely. Last night at klik#sof in Kempinski Palace a couple of people reminded me of my blog. (saj res!) My Muse today screamed at me through the phone: Are you alive, genijalka? WTF happened to your blog?!!
It surely made me think about it. It made me even write about it. ;) At least to make sure I am not dead yet.
I guess it's just a period. Even my fellow blogger stopped the regular posting. (WTF Zadeta?;)
Now as I am detoxing myself on homemade veggie soup from last night's free cocktails, free absint and some strange unidentified drinks... (I am so bad with refusing the free drinks, I am a real sinner, mea culpa) I was a tipsy hoe and I liked it. ;)
Anyway, the party was great. Kempinski palace is o moj bog so gorgeous, with the lighting and all. The only thing I can bitch about was that they put Jonty to start playing at 4 AM. Before him there was some blonde hoe torturing us with dreadful house from 10 years ago. I mean, you bring a wonderful DJ star from London, you were suppose to let him play at the highlight of the party. Not afterparty. But I guess, the blonde hoe didn't wanna let go, and she was so high up at the balcony, she didn't see our grumpy faces.
I saw some old friends, met some new friends, mingled, got business proposals (by the way, Jonty could not resist my feathers and lace), I even met my fan from facebook. I am always very surprized when they aproach me. And flattered too. ;) Got some orders from the blogorola boys (I will give you a group discount if you make a large order;)) Overall a pretty good night.
And many thanks to Mushi who decided to be a driver for the princess without a ride. Mushi rocks. <3

Cupping & moxa- a method against ishias

My ishias was not getting any better (even absinthe supreme did not save me, sorry Josser;)), so I had to look for a professional help today. It was a very very interesting session and I must say I can now almost straighten up my back. Which I couldn't do for 2 days now, I was a bit of a Quasimodo, heheh.
So what can you expect when you go for a cupping session? In this day and age, glass cups are used. Three thousand years ago, bamboo, animal horn or brass - if you could afford it - were the order of the day. In fact, the old Chinese name for cupping was 'horning'. Traditionally, the cups are heated with alcohol and flame on the inside to reduce the pressure, then placed over the skin. As the cup cools down, the skin is sucked up inside. The newest innovation in cupping does away with the dangerous flame and uses a pump action instead. This is also a much more accurate way of gauging the degree of suction and, of course, eliminates the risk of burning. Doctors of traditional Chinese medicine and practitioners of Japanese shiatsu therapy, place the cups at various positions along the meridian lines. These are the same lines used in acupuncture. There are five meridians on the back and these are usually targeted, particularly the bladder meridian. It is possible to cup the hands, legs and ankles too. By cupping these meridian lines, specific organs in the body can be targeted. Cupping is generally used by practitioners if there is cold energy in the patient's meridians. The warm air from the cupping stimulates the skin, and the suction coaxes blood to the area which promotes localised healing. The chi is warmed and starts to flow freely down the meridians.

While I was waiting for the vacuum cups to work their way across my meridians, I also received moxa stick treatment.

The Moxa Stick is lit at one end and held about 1 inch from the skin, the distance varying with the tolerance of the patient and the degree of stimulation required. Normally the stick is burned for up to 15 minutes or until the skin around the area is bright red. This method is used for pain due to obstruction (Arthritic type pain).
I was told I need to let the heath enter my body again through this procedure (I got into all this trouble because I sat outside a few days ago, while having coffee- obviously for too long)

I need to rest now but I will give you a detailed report on how I feel in 3 to 4 days, when I am suppose to burst with my Chi.

Visit to Shambala & screaming little demons incident

Shambala is a great new thai/vietnamese restaurant at Križevniška 12. Great ambient, you eat in the atrium under the skylight and the food is really delicious. I tried 2/3 of the menu so far, and I recomend everything with pleasure: coconut soups, vietnamese rolls with fresh thai basil, coriander and shrimps, yummie tempura veggies, mango salad, coconut strjenka with mango pulp.... Except for the shambala steak which is suppose to be marinated in lemongrass but I did not sense any. Nevertheless the steak itself was prepared wonderfully. And the staff is really cool (and good looking too, girls;)) The only thing is to be careful with is their wine chart: great choice, but quite expensive. They also keep a good selection of green teas from Čajna hiša.
My second visit to this enjoyable place was disgustingly interrupted by a two young couples with two screaming little demons who could not hold their bodily liquids. And I mean it literally. I do not understand some parents who drag their small demons to public places, in this case a restaurant with a very quiet atmosphere, and leave them to destroy everyones appetite. If you know your child is histerical or hyper-active, why not leaving it at home or with the grandma? But to let it crawl and run around and get constantly in a waiters way, to let it scream like it's been tortured and not do anything, just sit there and do nothing, while guests were forced to leave the place? How rude is this? Like this was not enough, the child shat himself, and the senseless mommy changed his diper (!!!???!!!) afront of all the guests, 2 tables away from mine, while I was just having my green curry.....and the toilete was like 3 meters away. Did I want to see the colour of his poo? No. It ruined my dinner and made me wanna grab that mommy by her neck and stirfry her face in Shambala's kitchen.

Slovenska Ritka 2009

I think I will be memorised from now on as the Slovenian Ritka designer.
Ana Dolinar was stage-wised absolutely the most glam (no, I will not be modest, sorry). I will leave more braging up to her in the following video. ;)
I want to thank Tinka Pobalinka for waking up (;)), and creating the fantastic make-up and hair for Ana Dolinar and Ula Furlan. Tinka, you rock girl, and I love you!
Both girls were extremely gorgeous, I totally loved spending the whole afternoon with them, (although I haven't slept at all- first K4 party, then MB Pekarna, and then straight back to work, with minor technical incidents while trying to get in touch and wake up Tinka). ;) Yes, we are the real party people here.
I almost ended up going to Viki's myself, with Ula, but I was too fucked up and wasted to play this game. And I had nothing to wear (if you believe me, ha!).

DP on 24ur.com with Rudi the pig & Viktorji chit chat

I had an unexpected visitor last night. A paparazzo was hidden in my (thousands of euros worth) closet (next to an ostrich and a batman) and I was not being able to escape.
I had no choice but to cooperate...

So me? countdown....

This is to say, that I am trying to earn myself a free gin-tonic (Fedja) or some rakija (Katarina), this friday in our favourite basement. ;)

credits to my magic crew, especially the make-up goddess Tinka Pobalinka who got sadly forgotten to be mentioned on the polaroids and printed flyers.
Assistant and handy man mr. Mushi also hopes for the free entrance and a special VIP-access-all-area pass. ;)

Feathers and air: Junya Watanabe

This is breath taking! Ready-to-wear like you wouldn't believe...

Sneak preview

This is a quick preview of the semi-finished gown (one of the three) for Viktorji 2009. Please, do not get distracted by the ugly plastic bag in the background. Or the mess. You know that this is the studio of an artist, don't you? We like to call it the work in progress....;)

Where the wild asparagus grow...(the art of spending sunday)

The day started with a strong India Monsooned Malabar. Then, a quick lift with Mushi's space-shuttle to Kras. To the wild asparagus kingdom. But we were 2 weeks early, so we ended up changing our plans...
We had to think about it deeply... while we did that, we became seriously hungry...

Mu, one thing lead to another...
We ended up in a hidden little place called Majerija. Where they treated us like kings with the aroma of burja and the sun. We took off with pumpkin soup with grated dryfried almonds...
continued with homemade ravioli stuffed with asparagus and goat cheese, topped with black sesame seeds...
Vipavski mlinci (grandma style) in broccoli/stirfried pancetta topping
Dandelion salad with potato and cracklings (ocvirki for the hommies)
and mmmmmmmm.... lamb cutlets in rosemary/garlic sauce with baked potatoes and peas

more pigging out on "only for happy lovers" strawberries with homemade pistachio and vanilla ice cream....
chocolate foam with pineapple, basil and red orange sorbet....kapa dol, master Matej Tomažič
the day was well spent and this is the look from Majerija's window
God we love Primorska! (we hate to leave it for Ljubljana too)
We also bought Majerija homemade goodies: Roženkraut and elder blossom syrup, olive oil, raspberry liquer...but we forgot to take plum and raspberry vinegar. Damn! We'll have to rush back sometime real soon. Did I mention that Majerija completely changes the menu every 2 months?

Here's one that caught my eye, especially the yummie big shoulders: Lie Sang Bong

Stuffed zoo in Mario's sunday show

Ula came with 10 people this morning. The director, the assistants, make-up artist.... It would all stay nice and decent, but when the director spotted the zoo... I knew it wouldn't be that easy. Of course, we had to create the whole fashion show with Ula and my dead darlings.
I've been told that Mario is quite a conservative tv show. Well I'm sure that my zoo will spice up the sunday evening of many slovenian families.

I am busy

I know, I used to crazily post on my blog and now I am a bit slack. Well, Viktorji are coming up. I've got 3 people to dress. One of them is announcing the winner and will be wearing a long silk taffeta gown which is currently in pieces, lying on the floor in my studio while waiting to get dry (the print, that is).
And tomorrow morning (how bizarre) Mario & tv crew are coming to my place ful of stuffed animal (yes, the zoo is still here;). I let myself talk into it by my lovely friend Ula who's going to be a guest on his sunday show.
I will serve green tea for Mario... it sounds very surreal. I just hope that Svizec stays kool.
