“Language is a skin: I rub my language against the other. It is as if I had words instead of fingers, or fingers at the tip of my words. My language trembles with desire.

“To perform as a dancer and express myself, I need to think about what is hurting and shocking me (the MKO in Mali). When we shot the film, I was thinking about the life I had chosen that others did not support. I was trying hard to make them understand and accept my choices. I had that kind of rage.”
Papi, a pioneer of Afro Hip Hop in Mali and dancer in the Gilles Cabau's 'Shake" film.
TI's inboxes just pinged with this press release regarding Gilles Cabau's 'Shake' YouTube series , the first film of which is set in Mali's vibrant capital of Bamako.

"Well when I went to Central Saint Martins in 1990 I had already worked for Hamnett, Galliano, PX etc. and had been hanging out on the scene since I was 14 so I felt quite jaded by everything even before I began. I saw the art school ethos as irrelevant to the outside world. All the students could do these amazing illustrations – like John (Galliano) – but didn't know what a bust dart was. Ironically, it was me that went on to do an MA in fine art and show with a gallery… so I'll shut up now!"

In the late 80's/Early 90's Sebastian Cardin captivated Paris with a long lithe body, a boy beauty and a sang froid so chilly it impressed even...the French. Lagerfeld liked it. As did the New Turks, Mugler and Gaultier who used Sebastian's boy/girl fusion to maximum effect. That apparent indifference, that supreme lack of desperation...it served her well on the pages of Elle when that Early 90's Elle with it punchy, color-driven layouts, put the fear of God in the Grand Lady glossies.
