Me in NYC; EVENT IN NYCOn Sept 15th 2011 @ MILK MADE GALLERY in Chelsea, I went LG Parsons panel discussion. This discussion was about how technology has been influencing on Fashion Industry, and the panels had pretty distinct point of views. They discussed mainly of the blogs, magazine like websites such as STYLE.com, and etc.
Well, for me, the technology gave me more variety of information regarding any categories of art and design, than what it was used to be like before. Because I get my inspiration from what I call “primary research,” I think the website should just work as one of the ways of delivering NEWS and TRENDS of all around the world, than becoming as the only thing that people get their inspiration from. And so, I thought, ‘everything is, almost all the time, about the balance. Technology is becoming to be called more and more as one of the most powerful resources in Fashion or any other types of categories, so in order for us to keep our thinking and also listening to what other people are thinking at the moment, we all should be balanced. This was the first ‘real’ Fashion Week event experience for me, and I enjoyed being part of this event.
Anyways, other than the panel discussion, I really liked the interior of the MILK MADE Gallery. The minimalistic and clean would be like the best descriptions for this place. I edited these photos I took from the gallery with more warm tone (which distinct from the color palettes I was attracted through out first and second weeks of blogging) based on my inspiration from the gallery itself. I wanted it to look very neat, and creamy-MILK like place because as soon as I heard of there name, MILK, the first image that came into my mind was creamy milky color tones.
On my way back to home, on the W15th street, I found that all the stores also have very similar interior mood like MILK gallery: minimal, clean, and sophisticated. This was something that I have known for many years, but I have not thought about it. After, I was glad that I chose my tumblr theme as minimal. I think it helps the viewers/audiences to have more clear visions of what and who to focus on more on.
