Breakfast breakfast2 breakfast3

A couple of weekends ago, a very good friend of mine came visiting me and we spent the weekend in London. The city was celebrating the New Chinese Year (Horse!). We had a wonderful Lebanese breakfast at Maroush Bakehouse (I am still dreaming of this cherry vanilla cheesecake which I discovered right after having breakfast… I curse myself).

The streets around Trafalgar Square where the celebration was taking place. It was impossible to take pictures due to the crowd.

I love Mia Farrow. That short hair and that wild delicacy she represents. These pictures belong to a cover story from Life magazine in 1967. I know she might be popular these days for some other familiar problem, but could not resist sharing with you these pictures in the hope we all forget part of her present (or remember her golden past!). Enjoy!

Reading through a pile of information can be boring and tiresome. It is the moment when you feel you are cursed because you actually need to know the information but the table and other type of info display make you want to just die peacefully. David McCandless knows a deal about this. Having worked for publications such as The Guardian and Wired, David works now as a data journalist. He came with the idea of making infographics fun and interesting (Thanks David!) and is the one behind Information is Beautiful. Infographics at its best!

It is funded by sales from images, books and posters, so feel free to wander around their shop, do not try to stop yourself from buying!

Next week I will be heading to see an exhibition on Hannah Höch at the Whitechapel Gallery. Whether you are keen of the artist or you do not know anything about her, only for the sake of dropping yourself by an art gallery, I encourage you to go an have a look at what is going on.

For those of you who do not know the name of Hanna Höch (1889 – 1978), I could tell you she was one of the Dadaist artist (although she was criticized by the very movement at the time) in the German scene. She used her photomontage to criticize mass culture beauty industry using fashion magazines to create her unique collages.

Today I am going to talk about iMerchandise, a new app recently launched which allows all fashion professionals who are in charge of wholesale buying much easier. David Secul, the CEO and founder of the company, approached me to let me know about this wonderful app. So for all of you lucky ones who are in the business, iMerchandise can help you manage your own fashion project: taking photos, making your own fashion story, as they call it, and organize your merchandise by brands and categories. This app also lets you take control of your budget as well as sending orders to vendors and controlling deliveries.

imerchandiseWell, I do not work directly in the field but that sounds pretty brilliant! Apart from these features, iMerchandise also helps you to deal with your online marketing, being able to share  your fashion ideas while your are in a fashion show or a showroom on the go. You can share in Twitter and Facebook (they are currently working on Instagram!) The only thing you will need to do is forgetting your pen and paper! Easy, right?

Have a look at their video for a snappier idea of this project:

iMerchandise is available for iOS and Android. Have a look at their product info page in their site!
