For Hire

Sunday, October 19, 2008


As I am multilingual, Native Swiss (from the German part) living and working in the USA for a decade and a half, English being my now second language (you be the judge, read my blog), speaking fluent Italian and just about well French, some words in Spanish and Turkish, I am thinking of adding another language to this blog... German, ja, das tönt wirklich nicht schlecht, neh, that way I won't have such a hard time anymore when I return to good old Switzerland speaking Swiss German. I am searching for words sometimes and das geht ja nun wirklich nicht, denn ich bin ja Schweizerin und natürlich stolz darauf! Also ja, jetzt ist es raus und ich werde mich bemühen diese Übersetzungen zu machen, wenigstens teilweise, huh? Bis bald auch auf Deutsch, gell?

Falls ich das dann manchmal vergesse oder eben einfach keine Zeit dazu habe dann übersetze den Text doch einfach selbst hier:

Merhaba Berk'cim, yes, idil is Turkish. My parents told me they gave me this name because, besides them liking it, they adored the Turkish pianist idil Biret... I recently found out that İdil (Syriac: Azekh) is a district of Şırnak Province of Turkey, traditionally a town dominated by Syriacs, but in later times dominated by Kurds. Thanks for commenting!

Just like the rare Swiss mountain flower Edelweiss - a symbol of prestige and distinction - the clothing brand IDILVICE (pronouced "Edel-vice") was born in the mountains of Switzerland and since then it's flourishing on the concrete of Manhattan and recently even in the rolling hills of the San Francisco Bay Area. However as the spelling indicates, the label is not meant to be associated with too much folkloric alpine tradition, but rather and probably in the contrary, with unconventionality. The IDILVICE label was founded in 1995 by Swiss Native fashion designer Idil from the city of Saint Gallen, Switzerland, who's foundation dates back to the 7th Century and which became famous for their quality textile products, especially embroidery textiles, which are still popular with Parisian Haute Couture designers today. In search for something less traditional, Master Graphic Designer Idil ventured out to New York City where she fell in love with American Pop Culture.
