I can’t begin to tell you just how much I loved the Fall/Winter 2021 Louis Vuitton Men’s Paris Fashion show. This show took place in January and was live streamed to the world on Youtube. It was an exhilarating, enthralling experience and simply unmatched in the creativity department.
Picture this, I’m doing my usual scroll through YouTube and see this in my suggested videos list. So I click and BOOM! Within the first minute, my mouth was hanging open. I sat up in my bed. I needed to take it all in because it was just that good.
It was such a layered experience that featured poetic genius, Saul Williams, Black ice skaters and Rap King, Yasiin Bey (formerly known as Mos Def). Once I laid my eyes on the ice skaters, I was hooked. These brothas were skating their tushies off. I have to say it: this show was pure magic. It was different. It inspired me to set a new standard for my own work. It gave me countless hours of inspiration.
Virgil Abloh, I need to curtsy in front of you because you (and your team) did that! Thank you to you and your team for bringing this magnificent piece of art to life. This show embodies the way that I feel about The Joy In Beauty. Don’t expect just another blog here; my goal is to bring something different to the table. Something more amazing than what you imagine. I want you to feel the way I did when I saw the ice skaters first dance across my screen.
The film was beautifully shot and the clothes were impeccable but the idea is what I loved. I’ve never seen a fashion show shot that way and that was super inspiring to me. It inspired me to think outside the box and it made me question, why play it safe in my own life. If you have a vision, see it through. It’s worth it.
But guess what Virgil did, he went and did it again with his Spring/Summer 2020 show! Having a fashion show during a pandemic is extremely difficult but you take your skills and collaborate with talented individuals and come up with something extraordinary. Don’t believe me? Watch and see for yourself.
I’m Joy and I’m here to let you know that you are perfect and whole just the way you are. Come journey with me as we explore what beauty, true beauty, really means! Let’s lift each other while having fun and making new discoveries. Sounds like a good time to me so.. Let’s Stay in Touch!
