Woodstock's anniversary and such. The city is full of celebrations leading up to the release date of the movie. I checked out the Morrison Hotel Gallery next to CBGB, which opened an exhibit of Woodstock photographs last Thursday. The show was only so so, definitely not as high a caliber as one might have expected or wished to see. I dressed up in hippie theme and biked up to the Bowery... I took the opportunity to have my picture taken with Superfly, a celebrated Japanese Rock Star, who enjoyed the show in her trademark hippie attire and along a huge Japanese TV crew!
- New York, NY, United States
- 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.
