‘FEMALE FREEDOM HAS an EXPIRATION DATE’ {BEING 35 and SINGLE}

Published on 12 Dec 2013

An Argentine woman, documenting her relationships, begins an intimate investigation searching for love and answers: must she settle down or continue to be a free spirit in order to be happy?

I love this video... and the sentiment behind it. Because in many Countries, including the US;  a women is frowned upon if she is not married by the time she hits 30… worst 35 and its a complete sacrilege if a women is 40 or older; unwed!  Women should not feel like they have an expiration date hanging over their heads simply because of the constitution of religion or old customs.  Lets just be clear… marriage is not for everyone, and some of us are true gypsy’s at heart… butterflies … we must fly and never be contained.  Their’s a special freedom that we encompass in our soul and hearts!  Bravo to this Argentine woman and many thanks to her for sharing her story!!!

xoxo Karin

HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMENS DAY {GLOBAL AWARENESS 2014}

To all women around the world:

You are all my sister and my inspiration. I am thankful for the women who sacrificed, stood in lines and fought, voiced themselves and remained true to their vision, and dreams . I am thankful for the women who empowered all of us as women and beings in general.  We are all equal in regards to living creatures and we all deserve equal rights.  I am grateful because of the strong and impeccable women who continue to stand up and voice themselves, creating better opportunities, providing education, awareness and a worldly future for our younger generation.  My heart holds a special place  for the women in the Middle East who continue to sacrifice their lives to make sure that the younger generation gets to have a taste of freedom. I commend you for all your bravery! We have  come a long way, however we have much more to accomplish.

HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMENS DAY!

xoxo Karin

YOU WILL ALWAYS LIVE IN OUR HEARTS … IAN CUTTLER SALA

Ian Cuttler, a good friend to me, to my partner Hassan Kinley and many more in our circle.  This news comes as a shock to us all… many of us still remain in disbelief…

Ian Cutler was a Grammy Award Winning art director and photographer, that grew up in Mexico City, where his early passion for art was fostered by his mother, a painter and sculptor. He began his Graphic Design studies in Mexico City and in a few months into school Ian opened his own design studio as friends inundate him with freelance work. After a couple of years he decided to augment his work experience with additional academic training and he enrolled with advanced placement into Art Center College of Design. There he receives a BFA and within week after graduation Ian moved to NYC.

Ian Cuttler was responsible for the art direction in iconic album covers, like Rainbow, of Mariah Carey. Working with the Sony Music NY for nine years and coordinated the design of the material record of artists such as Alejandro Fernandez, Marc Anthony, Beyonce and Ricky Martin.

I first heard of Ian Cuttler back in 2006; when we first published his work in our Karin and Raoul Gallery section. He made our Cover!  Shortly after, we arranged to meet, and from that point on, a wonderful friendship developed.  Was quite easy actually; Ian had such an amazing disposition.

I’ve always found Ian’s work to be inspirational. He was different from many thats out there shooting. He did his own thing, had his own style. This body of work below is part of his personal sexy work and it speaks in volumes. He wasn’t afraid to play with light… he demonstrated this with his strong, daring and captivating images. He would break the rules and create impressive and powerful works that would move you!

These two especially are intoxicating!

KITHE BREWSTER’S {Into the Forrest} FALL / WINTER 2014 COLLECTION

Kithe Brewster’s “Into the Forrest” Fall / Winter 2014 Collection delves into the forrest and all of its dark mystery. The color palette is derived from the colors and textures seen in a winter forrest. The hues of green derived from moss, lichen and pine create inspiration for texture and prints.  Vampires lurk in this forrest and their dramatic costumes and dress come into play again this season as with his debut collection. After four seasons Kithe has built quite a following and this promises to be his biggest show to date and the worldwide launch of Kithe Brewster Collection. Luxury is the underlying statement and fabrications ranges from lush woolens to leather coupled with incredible silks in rich and succulent colors derived from the forrest.  www.kithebrewster.com

More About Kithe Brewster:

Early in his career, Kithe spent fourteen years in Europe honing his skills as a fashion editor and stylist.  Living in Paris at nineteen proved to be the right move for Brewster, who immediately grasped the French scene, becoming a hot stylist almost instantly.  After seven years in Paris, Brewster moved to London where music styling became his bread and butter. Working with artists like the group Bewitched, a post Spice Girls multi-platinum selling band that he imaged from the start, their video “Cest La Vie” was credited for the return of denim to the mainstream.
