50 m catwalk, with more than 10 fashion shows over 5 days from the 19th till the 23rd of May 2015 at St. Georges Yacht Club & Marina.

I fully subscribe to the idea that art has to be well executed and manifest the artist’s prowess. This is what the fashion designer Ivanna Mackova actually did. Her innovative cuts were matched by her innovative fabrics. I cannot describe her work by any other word than “Avant-Garde”.

Moreover and most importantly, the collection presents a perfect balance of translucence and secretiveness in his semi sheer garments layered together, in black and white. In these clothes I could see a designer who grew up in a certain environment without growing out of it. She is not a designer who had a chance to manifest her experience, and take it to a more mature and elegant dimension. Therefore the dresses she…

Taking A Short Breather

Taking A Short Breather

We have friends coming to stay over tonight. (Don't smirk. I have friends!) Although you may see me on Twitter, I'm planning on taking a couple of days' breather from here. And it's the May Bank Holiday weekend, too. I should be back Tuesday. I've been doing lots of non-blogging writing all week and I'm … Continue reading Taking A Short Breather

Various Thoughts: 23 April 2015

UPDATE 2: 16:50 (4:50 pm) UK time: I see no one jumped at (or so far even reacted at all to) my Periscope idea. So I'll presume the answer's "No"? 😉 As you can also see, given I'm writing this, there has been no ninja attack on my house today.... as of yet. * * … Continue reading Various Thoughts: 23 April 2015

Thanks to my interviewing Lebanese journalist Hala Feghaly on Monday, through yesterday I'd been inundated with new visitors, mostly from Lebanon. Yes, yes, yes, I know they came by for her, so … Continue reading Our Old School Chums

In The Sunshine

Calm has returned after Lebanese journalist Hala Feghaly's presence on my modest blog here attracted a pop star-level horde of visitors yesterday. Yet I'm seeing yesterday's trend beginning again this morning. I've had many more visitors than usual this early in the day (around 7 am, as I post this), which makes sense as Lebanon … Continue reading In The Sunshine

A Very Special Post: An Interview With Hala Feghaly

UPDATE: 18:15, UK time: Hello, Lebanon! What a mob scene! I think I have gotten more visitors from your country just today than, well, in total over the whole life of my modest novelist blog! I hope you enjoy what you read below. I'm sure you will. And thank you for stopping by. 🙂 * * * It's … Continue reading A Very Special Post: An Interview With Hala Feghaly

We’ve All Had “Our First Post”

We’ve All Had “Our First Post”

I'm still "in the zone." Yesterday was the best example in this recent "burst" of creativity. I got through an entire chapter, start to finish, and added several other pages here and there. With that, I've got almost 25,000 words now. Parts (of this in-progress third novel) are starting to read much more like a … Continue reading We’ve All Had “Our First Post”
