THE RATBITCH EMPOWERMENT

Firstly to point out, this is not about speaking badly about men. This is about the empowerment of women, a topic upon a discussion of the importance of “defying society’s mould of femininity”. Searching into the past in order to reflect upon the future, can teach us peace and understanding. We must empower this generation of women and teach the past what is wrong. This magnificence and connective community Rat Bitch is a perfect example into the confidence, that women and young girls need in today’s society. I’m tough, I’m ambitious, and I know exactly what I want. If that makes me a bitch, okay. – Madonna Ratbitch’s idea is to inflame and set out opportunities to connect to women worldwide, send a message as a safe place to find others. Be a part of a group. . . a community. That will centre around removing “stigmas, taboos, and judgement” , a…

YAYOI KUSAMA-INFINITE OBSESSION-ART IN LONDON

The artist who succeeded to capture infinity-Yayoi Kusama. One of the reasons that Yayoi Kusama is one of my favourite artists is not only the avant-garde nature of her work but actually the fact that she is a real-life example of what  Bukowski successfully quoted:  “Find what you love and let it kill you” Seeing her work in London not long ago, was one of my most memorable experiences in this city until today. When I got the news that her work would come to London, my excitement was beyond words. Her art is absolutely phenomenal. Yayoi was born in 1929 in Matsumoto City. She was part of a big family. Even from the age of ten, she was driven by her passion for drawing, which her parents were completely opposed to. According to her mother’s will, she had to get married to someone from a rich family and become a…

FASHION INDUCTION: HAUTE COUTURE VS READY-TO-WEAR

 As I was thinking about a what my new article would be about, one thing was definitely on my mind- I’ d like to write about fashion. It is well know to many that London is one of the leading cities in the fashion world, proof of that is the fact that  around 46,400 people are currently employed by the fashion industry in London in one way or another. I kept starting my first paragraph and then deleting it, not being sure of what I want to say or how i wanted to start. I kept thinking, should it be about new trends? Colours? Shapes? At that moment, I gazed upon a book which lies on my coffee table “The dictionary of Fashion”. Then it occurred to me that I would like to write about the basic things. Haute couture is the first thing that came to my mind as many of…
