Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Day 1



So I've been busy with Fashion Week, which is actually a very awkward sentence for me to type because I'm probably the least fashionable creative on the planet. With me anytime is a good time for a graphic t-shirt, some jeans, and a pair of adidas but this week isn't about my lack of style, but about all the gorgeous people buzzing about from show to show picking up what's new, and in style.


I'm proud to say that this Fashion Week I can claim the Street Style Photographer Badge as I took a few pics before and after the Richard Chai show. Now I'm no Mr. Newton, but I'm not too shabby.































I'm also cutting up my video for Bloggers Night Out, the girls pulled out all the stops on Feb 9th at Caulfield. The crowd was huge, the drunks free, and a good night was had by anyone who I didn't bump into with my camera.

I don't have anything too intense planned for the rest of the week maybe a bit more streetstyle, and I'll try to make a mini video recap of all the amazing that went on.

Cheers and Runway Teddy Bears!

What's My Motivation?


My latest work. I enjoyed this one. Does it relate to the post? Not really. Is it awesome? Yes.

I am in deep conflict with myself, to be more specific with my past self (Joshen of 2005-2006). It's around late 2005 that I decided to become a screenwriter. It turns out that decision lead to the creation of a business, and me developing artistic skills I never dreamed I would be capable of. For all this I'm very thankful of my past self, but my motivation, both past, and present,  is what is creating a bit of a dilemma today. In 05 my reasoning was that I could easily make up to 3 million dollars off the sale of one amazing feature script to a major studio, and that was all I needed to push forward. Today, I am not satisfied with my work, because I feel as though I'm not always making a piece of beauty, sometimes I feel like I'm unsuccessfully selling my creative vagina. Now before we condemn the "05 version of me of being a greedy capitalist snob, who is only motivated by capital gains, lets put it out there that I come from a horrible socio-economic situation, and my goal for many years was to figure out a way to escape said situation.

The problem persists because as I develop into this creative being, my motivation to profit never waned. It's then a toss up in my own mind whether I'm trying to create, and capture beauty, or I'm simply trying to justify the means to an ultimate end.

I watched a documentary last night that made me feel horrible about myself, it then proceeded to inspire me, and gave me a sense of pride for what I am, and could potentially be. It was called Bill Cunningham New York (Available on Netflix, and here), and it was a brief glimpse into the life of what I would consider a true master of the arts. Bill lived modestly, and is kind beyond words. He has chronicled the people of New York, and fashion in ways that I fear may one day be lost. He is an artist and his reward is finding beauty in an eternal search for more. I recommend watching Bill Cunningham NY, as it was a moving experience for me, as a New Yorker, and as a creative. Bill tips the scales in a conundrum I often think about, what's more important the journey, or the destination?


Cheers and "Honest, and Straight New York" Teddy Bears!
