Flower Arrangements by Azuma Makoto
Well ‘Flower Arrangements’ is probably a bit of an understatement. Maybe his work is better qualified as art (if we need to label, which we do) Azuma Makoto’s work ranges from sending a 50 year old bonzai tree into space to putting 10,000 mini jars filled with flower petals in the shopwindows of Colette in Paris.
For the last Dries van Noten Fashion Show he repeated his project ‘Iced Flowers’; flower arrangements captured in large blocks of ice. These ‘Iced Flowers’ were showcased along the runway and were so overpowering that we even didn’t noticed the garments….oops (That’s how we, fashionangels at Mimi Berlin, got aquinted with Azuma Makoto’s work)
The making of “ICED FLOWERS” January 10 & 11, 2015. At 483 Furuike Ogose-machi, Iruma-gun, Saitama, Japan / Masuda seisakujo (via youtube.com)

The actress cares for animals, obviously….
*Animal rights is the idea that some, or all, non-human animals are entitled to the possession of their own lives and that their most basic interests—such as the need to avoid suffering—should be afforded the same consideration as similar interests of human beings.
