One day, out of the blue, I received a portrait by Mitja Bokun on my facebook account When George Inaki suggested we should make an ASVOFF Tokyo t-shirt and he would speak with American Apparel to produce it, I thought I'd ask Mitja if he would be ok if his artwork became our ASVOFF Tokyo t-shirt. He was happy to support ASVOFF and today he received his ASVOFF Tokyo t. We are all very happy.

This just appeared on instagram...Dustin Pittman, a friend from NYC in the 80's, took this polaroid way back then with Robert Molnar, his model is in black, my model is in gold to his left and Stephen Sprouse with his model in blue. Guess it was taken some time in the early 80's...
Happy to see the gold linen dress that I designed so many decades ago, thanks Dustin, lost my archives so it is fun to see it now..
'A Shaded View on Food' was a wonderful collaboration with TAKAZAWA who customized the dinner around yours truly and ASVOFF. With each course, a sparkling vintage Dom Perignon. They were all sublime but I did have my favorite vintages, Dom Perignon OEnotheque Vintage 1995 and the Dom Perignon Rose Vintage 2003. And all the while the room was mapped in ASVOFF videos.
I cannot keep from isolating this moment in one post. Loredana di Porcia e Brugnera and I toasted with Dom Perignon Vintage 2004 and magically the films appeared on the walls and ceiling. It took my breath away transformed the entire space.
Zoltar The Magnificent celebrates 10 years of Project Zoltar which is a multi-platform creative collective. Project Zoltar was born as an antidote to the dying art of British eccentricity.
“Zoltar was born bastard child of acid house and punk rock. A molotov cocktail of art, film and clothing. One Part social comment and One part sartorial excellence…..Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.” Dan Macmillan,
In ASVOFF 2010, Alex Prager won the Best Art Direction Prize for Despair. Despair depicts a woman in a state of enchantment who is compelled to enter a strange and powerful red door that alters her life forever. Focusing on the female characters emotion of despair, Prager creates a sense of uneasiness and mystic. The film, like Prager’s still photographs are beautiful on the surface while having an underlying complexity to it. I've been a fanof her work ever since.
