Storytelling…J C de…

Ok! It`s all blurred! Anyway I really love the expressiveness of J C de Castelbajac as he is telling his story…his story about how he 1997 made a rainbow cape for the pope and thousands of priests…an amazing story. I`m still blog catching up, I now PROMISE to do one story a day until I´m done with this storytelling event. Just have to do one story  complete before the next…and that will be the J P Gaultier show, the backstage etc…catching up from fashion week Paris. Love catching up! This man has a passion and a very interesting life. You can also follow him on Instagram: @jcdecastelbajac it is fun. And listen to his story HERE. at 28.25 min._DSC5497 _DSC5501 _DSC5502 _DSC5503 _DSC5505 _DSC5506 _DSC5507 _DSC5520 _DSC5580 _DSC5584_DSC5598 _DSC5599 from the stage set he walks on… _DSC5586 and puts his angels out to watch over you everywhere. _DSC5564   photo: Ingmari Lamy

The Vestoj Storytelling event…

OH MY…the videos from the storytelling is out! They were only REHEARSAL from the day before and I didn`t know my story by heart by then, even less how to improvise with it…and WHAT am I doing with my hands! ANYWAY enjoy all the storytellers! The day before, not all the sets were done and…I promise MY story was so much better the next day, when I could share it without the notes, after a whole night of practise, part of that in a bathtub where I fell asleep practising. I loved to be part of it.

JC de Castelbajac

Participating in life. Being your own unique life, meeting other unique lives and the moment you get to share together, is true participation. I had the extreme joy of meeting so many beautiful beings, all unique…and some of their unique stories at the fondation d`enterprise Galleries Lafayette. Here a little taste of JC de CASTELBAJAC. He is this very colourful fashion designer with his own shows since years and years, I don`t know how many…and this is his PASSION, to crayon draw on walls, so he walks around Paris and wherever he is, with his chalks, and leaves angels behind. They are all over…This was just before the event, where we both participated, just on the courtyard outside my room. I looked out and there he was in full action…and as we spoke he included me, our friends in common Anthony and Coralie and also Kenzo of course…

_DSC5469Anthony? Coralie. I love this people. I first met Anthony backstage at the Dries van Noten show this march and loved the jewellery he had around his neck, a gold popcorn, it turned out him and his girlfriend Coralie make them, METAMORPHOSE they call them, from blue corn seeds that they metamorphose. So I immediately ordered one for Kenzos 75th birthday, since I had a vision of a golden pearl, it became a corn instead. And then of course I met Anthony again and the next day Anthony and Coralie at cafe Merci where we sat for hours talking about inner and outer life, spirit and matter. So now we are friends and I love them and love to hang out with them. They both work creatively with a fashion brand…and so it goes…unique meetings…and new creations

Storytelling…my story

Again at the fondation d`enterprise Gallery Lafayette event…I came there prepared but thinking ”no way I could remember the whole story by heart”. I had a few support words in my modelling book where I also had the photos by Bob Richardson that were the base of my story. It did go very well. I did have the story in my heart and could tell it in the presence of the moment itself. I felt it to be alive. The listeners were touched they told me and I could tell as well. This is just one story of many from my life as a model. Many more to follow…

The scenography in my storytelling space, was made by David (his last name?) representing my first little studio where I lived in Paris 67-68, a beautiful place.

telling the story, being in the emotion and the presence of the moment…

to a group of 30-40 listeners each time/ 6 times during the day/ the story becoming more vivid each time it was told, having it`s own life…

Storytelling…the beginning

My story to tell started with a meeting in the square du Temple with Anja Cronberg, an early march day, bursting with spring. Anja is the founder of the unique investigating fashion journal VESTOJ and a friend of mine. She had asked me to be 1 of 7 storytellers at an event for the  Fondation d`Entreprise Galleries Lafayette, a new platform for artists and art/fashion expressions in Le Marais. A full day of storytelling by people all connected to fashion, each one telling a personal story based on a garment, not the garment itself but the story related to it. On our first meeting I was sure about my garment…a poncho in cashmere by TSUMORI CHISATO…and my story…that I have practically lived in it for several years, wearing it`s elegance to parties, using it as a  blanket wherever I would sleep and wrapping my naked body in it after a warm summer swim in a swedish forest lake…THAT was not my story! The two hours spent with Anja on a bench in the Square du Temple, revealed a totally different story, a story from far back, my first fashion story and the year 1967…my first meeting with the photographer Bob Richardson and our first shoot together. I was deeply moved by the feelings this memory brought up in me…and as I took a walk through le Marais down to l`Isle St Louis and sat down there at the quai, took off my shoes and rolled up my trousers to give my legs some sunshine, the story revealed itself to me clearly and the brown paper bag I had brought my pick nick in, had to serve as my writing paper. An hour later it was done and as I walked away from my place of inspiration among the fellow sunlovers, I felt good. The next day when I met Anja again and read her the story, in the same park on the same bench as the day before, she was thrilled…YES! THIS is the story! After 3 weeks home in Stockholm I was back in Paris…STORYTELLING.
