Wang, Alexander

Gia Carangi

After she became addicted to heroin, Carangi's modeling career rapidly declined. She later became infected with HIV and died at age 26. Her death was not widely publicized and few people in the fashion industry knew of it. At her peak circa 1975 she was considered by many to be the first supermodel, until she fell into the downward spiral of self destruction...

Factory Girl

Andy Warhol: I wonder if people are going to remember us?
Edie Sedgwick: What, when we're dead?
Andy Warhol: Yeah.
Edie Sedgwick: Well I think people will talk about how you changed the world.
Andy Warhol: I wonder what they'll say about you... in your obituary. I like that word.
Edie Sedgwick: Nothing nice, I don't think.
Andy Warhol: No no, come on. They'd say, "Edith Minturn Sedgwick: beautiful artist and actress...
Edie Sedgwick: ...and all around loon.
Andy Warhol: ...Remembered for setting the world on fire...
Edie Sedgwick: ...and escaping the clutches of her terrifying family...
Andy Warhol
: ...Made friends with eeeeverybody, and anybody...
Edie Sedgwick: ...creating chaos and uproar wherever she went. Divorced as many times as she married, she leaves only good wishes behind.
Edie Sedgwick: That's nice, isn't it?

A gloomy Saturday..

Cass and Clare.
We spent last Saturday in Mount Lawley, along with Antonia Paver and Thomas Townsend, making various coffee shop stops and avoiding the rain as we discovered new and interesting people and places. Be sure to take a look at Thomas' blog and give him much deserved credit for his amazing photography work...

Eating fashion
This blog, is by far the most wonderful that I have ever come across. This girl, Rumi Neely from California in the US, owns every piece of clothing I have ever wanted; including the most insane D&G black wedges. I am in awe by her lovely fashion sense and determination to create such beautiful photographs. I am lucky to have come across such a neat blog at 4.50 am on a Saturday morning.

Just can't get enough...

Josh Beech and Ash Stymest are so fucking lovely. I have only just recently discovered Josh Beech and I must say I am very impressed. Although many people are disgusted by the lack of muscle, the eyeliner and nasty sleeve designs.. these boys are sexy, and there's no denying it.

We're The Young Ones

If you have never watched this UK sitcom circa 1982, you are truly missing out. Based around four uni students from North London, its new wave humor helped the 'alternative' comedy scene flourish, their slapstick humor, puppets and flash frames made them the epitome of English comedy scumbags.
