“L’AMOUR Fou” [Documentary on Yves Saint Laurent]

Written by . Posted in Blog.

The public life of Yves Saint Laurent was an extravagant spectacle, as a design prodigy and then the grand coutourier of a fashion empire, he influenced fifty years of style and was an icon to millions — but few are familiar with the private life of the legend. In Pierre Thoretton’s “L’Amour Fou,” Pierre Berge, the man with which YSL shared four decades of his life, reflects on the equally extravagant history of their personal relationship. Framed around the 2009 auction of the priceless, elaborate art collection amassed by Yves and Pierre personally over several decades, this extraordinary documentary provides an unprecedented look at the life of a mythic personality, whose personal life matched his public for elegance, decadence and passion. – ComingSoon.net

What I’d Love to do again is become young – YSL



+++++ The film is set to be released May 13th, 2011 and previewed next week at the Tribeca Film Festival.

One Little Dress at a Time: Little Dresses for Africa

Written by . Posted in Blog.

Little Dresses for Africa is a non-profit, Christian based organization which provides relief to the children of  Africa. Simple dresses are made out of pillow cases and distributed through the orphanages, churches and schools in  Africa to plant in the hearts of little girls that they are worthy!

Knowing the history of the girls in Africa and the difficult road that lay ahead, a small group of ladies returning from a short term mission trip to Malawi began to sew simple little dresses, made out of pillow cases, to be distributed to young girls through the orphanages in  Africa. It continues to grow as groups of all sizes spring up across America.  These groups cross age, gender and denominational lines to serve the most vulnerable of God’s children: little girls.  To date we have received dresses and donations from all 50 states across the USA and received well over 175,000 little dresses that have been distributed in 24 countries of Africa!  We have also been able to distribute dresses to countries in crisis, when requested, such as Honduras, Guatamala, Philippines, Mexico and Haiti, as well as right here in the US in the Appalachian Mountains and South Dakota. But more important than how many we have shipped, are the lives that they have touched. These dresses (and now also britches for boys!) go out as little ambassadors in the name of Jesus, to give hope to the children that receive them.

 

With Little Dresses for Africa there are many ways to provide help…from starting or hosting your own sewing group, sizing and packing little dresses, or donating financially toward shipping costs, such as boxes, tape, postage. Because we want to make sure they actually get to the children, the majority of our dresses are sent to mission teams here in the United States, to take with them on their short term mission trips. So, we are always very much need mission teams to agree to take the little dresses with them to distribute on their trips.  We can send you as many as you are able to take, in most instances.
