Daybreaker is fast becoming a global event. Originating from New York, it is an early morning club scene which is creating quite a buzz. Instead of going to the gym or a run in Central Park the cool kids are delivering their best moves on the dance floor where ever the Daybreaker event is being held at the time.
Maybe it’s time for us to all switch up our partying ideas and give the early hours one whilst stone cold sober a shot.
An exquisite show from Marc Jacobs for his last collection with Louis Vuitton. My only disappointment was that it felt too heavily dominated with black, though this was poignant as Marc’s very first collection was also complete black.
The addition of faded denim did give some respite from the dark collection, and gave a youthful feel. Models with fabulous troll doll like hair, stormed the sheepskin catwalk. The collection was dramatic, sparkling and a touch rebellious.
Definitely some amazing collectors items for your wardrobe with this collection.
AMC campaigners are calling for an AIDS memorial to be created in London to remember those who have died from AIDS. Unlike Brighton, Manchester and many western capitals, London does not have a permanent memorial despite its high number of AIDS deaths. “A memorial would stand as a testament to all the efforts, sacrifices and tears of those who have fought against the disease. Uniquely, among many western countries, we, the capital city, who played a lead role in the fightback against HIV and AIDS, do not really have an AIDS memorial. There is a small chapel in Southwark Cathedral co-dedicated to AIDS victims but that has a religious connotation.”
Patrick Lyster-Todd, who is the lead campaigner
The group hopes that the memorial can be paid for by public subscription and with the help of corporate sponsorship, although Mr Lyster-Todd was adamant that funds should not be diverted from groups and sources which support people living with HIV and AIDS. He said a public consultation would be held on what shape the memorial could take and a competition would be open to designers. As yet, the group has had informal talks with a number of bodies about where a memorial could be placed. Mr Lyster-Todd said an analysis had been carried out to identity a number of possible locations. The AIDS Memorial Campaign plans to find a way of recording the names of AIDS victims on the memorial and says that it would be linked to a website and education campaign. For now, it intends to continue gathering support in order to put forward proposals in the future.
