Dear iDEALS , I am sure that many of you are aware of ASVOF Film Festival, organized by shaded maiden Diane Pernet and her team: Antoine Asseraf and David Herman. For all creative fashion-video makers there is a last chance until August 15th to submit their visual stories and win a premiere at Paris Centre Pompidou. All you have to do is submit your video on ASVOFF DailyMotion Group Diane Pernet Antoine Asseraf David Herman
ASVOFF started a few years back thanks to an idea by D.P , a festival of fashion+style+beauty which aims to sample the best of the quickly developing genre that is fashion film. Fashion films have taken off to a new level in the last year and so it is only natural that the festival should do the same…
so far a number of world known creative minds have joined, revealing a new part of themselves and works. Thomas Engel Hart Suzie Q and Leo Simoni Born To Film - Le Coq Sportif
Steven Klein - Fiction Noir Fumiko Imano - Rubbish Or Treasure

Dear iDEALS, during a break between a doctor appointment and some other business I met with designer Sotiris Georgiou. Sotiris is the most fresh member of the Hellenic designers association. He is known for designing clothes for both women and men.
He offered me a beautiful top as a gift and made my day.
last week the capital of Holland breathed fashion during the Amsterdam International Fashion Week. Close friend of mine and great Dutch designer Claes Iversen showed his collection last Saturday ‘Ceci n’est pas un post-it’ together with the Offschedule Zipper fashion show the day before in the Rooms of Redbull. That same night...
And Beyond designers Jolanda van den Broek and Brigitte Hendrix had their first exhibition called ‘The Undaunted II’, a review of their last collections, with the best afterparty ever in Pop-up café Meneer de Wit!
Monday was the closing day of the AIFW at the Modefabriek fair, where the style conscious Dutch label Kuyichi showed their latest vision on sustainable and organic fashion. Very interesting as well!
