Dylan Neuwirth ‘The Celebration’

I first saw Dylan Neuwirth’s art work at a fashion event downtown Seattle. I was so intrigued by his work I kept in contact. After a quick chat I went to check out his new body of work ‘The Celebration’, at his studio in Ballard. What I found was a gallery of large scale neon work, one small scale photographic print, and small to mid-size sculptures. Visually was exciting to the eyes but what was most interesting was the meaning behind all of his art work. He described he art as “What happens after the event or big the social gathering” and “the identity through the expectation, experience and nostalgia”. Being a person who goes to quite a few social gathering everything became clear! I’ve seen this before before but never captured in this way. The this is creative! This is electric! This is art!

If you are a person who checks out galleries or even a person who goes to events you can relate to Dylan’s art work. You can view more of his work on his tumblr page. Private viewing upon request. Regular studio open hours to begin in May and the year’s calendar will be announced soon. Follow him on twitter.

This year Vancouver Fashion Week celebrated its tenth year by holding it’s fashion show in Masik Studios. Masik’s paint splattered walls gave you a sense of creativity and expression. With 55 presenting designers on the list it was hard to keep track of who was who. Names like Eva Chen, Joseph Ribkoff, Claire O’Connor, and Claire O’Connor were some to grace the runway. In case you missed it here are a few pictures of the evenings I attended. Click Vancouver Fashion Week to find out more info.

Rene Ropas Doll house prom recap with Video

It has been hard for me to put into words what just happened last week. I’m still in a kind of shock. After months of hype with high expectations, Rene Ropas: Team Unstoppable stepped up, and turned our world upside down. The NW designer scene, and quite possibly the entire city of Seattle will never be the same.
No joke.
Designer Morgan Carson’s team just did the fashion equivalent to being the 1st group to break the speed of light. Every designer, blogger, or industry person I know who was there all felt the same. The depth of the glamour that was shown is hard to fully articulate. Even the pictures don’t do it justice. Let me try….
In one of the savviest brand alliances of all time, Google Places (Or Google: Seattle if you prefer) announced they were sponsoring Rene Ropas’ next runway fashion show. We should’ve known then that this would be game-changing. This pulled the dual effect of not only highlighting how intelligent Google’s selection was, (Finding a local’s local who could hang with the luxury fashion crowds.) but also confirming what many of us already knew: that this prodigy is a leader in intelligent design.

The 1st presentation was the Infiniti ready to wear collection. The models came out with poise to music that sounded like a Tron-like sonata, and proceeded to march one after the other in a complex geometric pattern that insured every person in the 500 person crowd had a great view at the garments. The cut and texture of these pieces had the simultaneous effect of being adventurous, yet subdued in a very intricate, but feminine way. The audience was blown back by the presence, then immediately drawn in to study why….
The fall avant garde collection, Femme Au Foyer, turned it up a notch. It dazzled with it’s future-shock, and you would’ve thought Google’s technicians themselves were taking instruction from Team Unstoppable on how to design quality couture with LED. (I really hope these 2 parties collaborate again.) Rene Ropas made an unspoken point that clothing could still be innovative while also being organic.

The event wrapped up nicely with Morgan thanking the audience, and then being challenged to a dance battle. Yep. Co-sponsor Shocking Goat’s mascot “Mister Fresh” came out and flirtatiously started breakdancing. Morgan Carson did not miss a beat as she brought it back to him on the dance floor that ended with her pulling him by his tie. It broke the ice and motivated all those in attendance to join them, celebrating the fact that the NW may finally be close to crafting a new unique aesthetic that nobody else has seen anywhere else. It was an unforgettable night. It was full of joy. And it was UNSTOPPABLE.

Taste The World – February 22

We weren’t even planning on doing a blog review! Although, after going to this special event we just had to show our viewers some of what we experienced. Taste the world was a culinary experience not to be missed. In this event you had the choice to pick from six different flavors from around the world including ; Thai, Caribbean, Mexican, and Indian just to name a few. My personal favorite was the Caribbean dish from Calabash. Other highlights were mexican cooked grasshoppers in which I tried. The grasshoppers weren’t too bad. It reminded me of a type of nut. I wouldn’t eat it everyday but I was fun to try!

The event had a live twitter feed going on in the background. I thought this was really cool as guest’s can see their post twitter “#tastetheworld” posts instantly. This defiantly added another form of interaction to the event. In the middle of the room, artist Dustin Timms created a urban graffiti master piece which was auctioned off for charity at the end of the event. Musical performers and dance groups provided a soundtrack and entertainment to this special event. One of my favorites were Gio Escueta and Sangre Morena.More photos to come.

Golazo: 3 v 3 Soccer Tournament and Party

After experiencing the Golazo launch party back in November I felt like wanted to capture the adventure for my VNT readers. Luckily I found another opportunity with the Golazo 3v3 tournament last weekend.

The party kicked off in Capitol Hill (which is one of my favorite areas might I add) at the Golazo headquarters. The place was buzzing with energy. There were so many things going on one could have been overwhelmed. In one section people were gathered on stands cheering and supporting their favorite 3 on 3 soccer teams. In another section was a picture booth where people had an opportunity to click their own photos next to an amazing graffiti background. There was Xbox Kinect set up near the back wall where the video game literate and the not-so literate could play and enjoy controller – free gaming. Everywhere else there were people warming up and practicing there best tricks and footwork.

I liked that this was a event that all ages could experience. I personally enjoyed the open bar upstairs for the 21+. “Golazo and vodka, I’ll take two please, lol!” All the while I was dancing to the mixes by Dj Killa B and other DJ’s of the evening. I finished off the night with a scrumptious quesadilla provided by The Rancho Bravo Tacos truck. Surprisingly it was front door service in the Golazo headquarters.

Que golazo!

Picture booth Photos can be view on the Golazo Facebook page.
