I'm just loving London Fashion week, what a joy to see all those beautiful spring clothes, only wish we weren't heading straight into winter... still I do love an excuse to do some layering!
Those of you who follow me on twitter may have heard my outrage at being ousted from facebook. My personal profile was deleted without even an email of explanation. Only when I investigated did I manage to glean that apparently they don't believe I am a real person! Can you believe it? I had to go straight to Chanel for the shock... and because they deleted my profile they also deleted my fan page. So I have lost touch with 17,000 gorgeous fans who had stopped by to show their appreciation. I wore black that day.
What is most outrageous is the amount of unofficial Fifi Lapin pages that they have not deleted. The cheek of it! So anyway, I have started a new fan page, if you're on Facebook and you feel like hitting that like button it's just here... I'd love to hear from you!
My piece entitled "El Catrín" represents the namesake urban legend from a little old town in Guanajuato, Mexico called San Juan de Dios where locals claims to have seen the ghost of this elegant man who committed suicide around the third decade of the 20th century. The story says he killed his wife and then regretted hanged himself and to these days you could see him walking around in a park of the same town looking for his lost love. Nowadays in Mexico the word "Catrín" is a synonym for an elegant and dressed up man.
Featuring 40 artists in Mexico, DF to celebrate the Day of The Dead. The Iconoclastic Dead show premieres October 1, 2011
The piece has been embellished with metallic acrylic touches! I found this beautiful ornamental skulled frame for my piece, very ad-hoc. Lucky me! ...Or I should say who ever buys the piece I guess :-)
