I don't usually plug magazines on my blog, but I do like the new cover(s) of I-d magazine, because it is the Agyness issue ( with 6 different covers , all of Agy ) We didn't get to see her in Paris for the shows, NewYork , London and Milan was too busy , so skipped Paris as I guess her body couldn't take it anymore. Check out the new I-d, if you like Agyness, you will want this issue

Eva's trip to Dharamsala

Little girl whose family worked on a construction site

worker on construction site at monastery

Fast food and hotel outlet

Temple and mountains ( how awesome does that mountain range look as a backdrop )

View from my room at the Monastery guesthouse ( woauw, you were just a stone throw away form the temple )

In Eva's own words

Further to the message that I posted you, I’ve attached some photo’s from my trip to India .They aren’t anything fancy, but they give you an idea about the mountains and the people and the neighbourhood.In the message I posted, I forgot to write that the Tibetan monastery was in Northern IndiaThe view from my room was quite incredible.The mountains are in the background.  There was no snow at the monastery.  They only get snow in the mountains. I’ve also included a photo of some of the kids.  I miss the kids A LOT.  I hung out with the kids a fair bit and helped to teach them English.  I listened to them read each night.  I wish they lived around the corner because I’d visit them all the time.  The little guy at the bottom of the photo popped up unexpectedly at the last second, so that was fun.  I was lucky to get these kids to pose for the photo as the dinner bell had just been sounded and they were itching to head off and get their tucker.  The photo was taken in their soon to be completed dormitory.  At the moment the kids sleep on the floor in other parts of the monastery.  It will be great for them to have beds and their own rooms. 
When we were walking home one day I just had to stop and take a photo of the Dutta fast food and hotel outlet.

Now when I was 5 or 6 years old my parents went to Dharamsala , and pretty much all over India, I'll have to get my mum tosend me some pics of our stay at Dharamsala sowe can compare pics from then and now, butin the meantime here's one of me ,I think it was in Delhi


Ancient Plastic by Taro Horiuchi

Diesel stores worldwide host “Ancient Plastic” capsule collection by Taro Horiuchi
The brand new Diesel Award at ITS#SEVEN: 50.000 euros and an experience in DIESEL CREATIVE TEAM.
International Talent Support, the platform for young talents from all over the globe, is collecting the enrolled projects from which ITS#SEVEN finalists of the three areas (ITS#FASHION, ITS#ACCESSORIES and ITS#PHOTO) will be selected to show their creativity at the event to be held 18-19 July 2008 in




During the year, between the different editions, chances and opportunities connected with the previous events and prizes become reality. Taro Horiuchi, Japanese, with an MA at Hogeschool Antwerp, entered into the fashion world working with the Raf Simons team in Paris from 2004 to 2007. Taro, finalist during the sixth edition of International Talent Support, July 2007, won the prestigious Diesel Award, which gave him the chance to work for over three months as part of the Diesel Creative Team, an international group of over 40 designers - headed by Creative Director Wilbert Das -among which Teppei Sugaya and Christoph Froehlich winners of the Diesel Award at ITS#TWO and ITS#FOUR respectively.

The creative allure of the experience, blended with Taro’s rich and different inspirations, drove him to a collection which mixes different flavours and elaborates new forms. The result is concretely represented by his capsule collection, produced by DIESEL and ready to be distributed in the most important DIESEL stores worldwide. Through clean lines and basic pieces “Ancient Plastic” expresses the combination of simplicity and individual uniqueness of human beings relating with God.
Last but not least the young fashion designer flew from Trieste to Japan, for Tokyo Collection Week, he (together with some more former ITS finalists) had been chosen to be part of "New Designers Met in Europe", an exhibition focused on emerging talents set as a side show during Tokyo Fashion Week, promoted and supervised by Issey Miake.
“Ancient plastic” will be the last capsule collection designed by The Diesel Award winner. With the aim to ensure that fashion students' dreams become reality, by offering them a tangible way to support their breakthrough into the international fashion scene, from ITS#SEVEN on the prize will be transformed. The Award will consist of a cash prize of € 50,000 that the winner can use, without limitations, to promote their work in the best possible way and to invest in their career. On top of that, the winner will be offered an internship within the Diesel Creative Team, headed by Diesel's Creative Director, Wilbert Das, at its HQ in

Snow storm

As soon as I went outside it started snowing pretty hard again, lots of different shapes and sizes

If only it would stay like this for a week, so much nicer than grey miserable wet days

Cute little snowballs on top of the flowers

Hyacinth ( awesome scent )

Daffodil, not knowing if it's coming or going

Click to see same flower2 days ago

Love it , like a drawing in a fairy tale

Another compare photo from 2 days ago, what a difference, 2 days ago looked like it could be t-shirt weather

Red rag in snow

Always amazes me , how snow can build up on a wire

Snow (Kodak style )MkII

After all of yesterdays snow had melted away in a matter of hours, nice to wake up again to fresh layer of snow

And this time it isn't melting away straight away

Doesn't this just look fantastic, nearly like tropical coral

Meanwhile, coming up in London
