The weird Youtube channel of the week is by Ms Bailey Sarian. Why? You ask of us. Well, Bailey is a make-up-artist with a series of video’s named Murdery Mystery & Makeup. Every monday she tells a gruesome, real crime-story while casually doing her make-up.These video’s take about half an hour. She starts out without any make-up on; full force pimples and blemishes showing. At the end of the video, when her crime-story is over she looks like a regular glamour-puss. She’s honest, does great make-up and has many followers, fascinating!
We, at Mimi Berlin, only could stand watching one video: the one we posted below with a story about Gypsy Rose Blanchard.
Let’s Make Some Conversation
We, at Mimi Berlin, remember from our childhood looking at our mother and chatting with her while she was doing her make-up. Watching Ms Sarian’s video made us think of those moments. Then it came to mind that the Murdery Mystery & Makeup video’s are maybe a lonesome situation, maybe not so much for Bailey, but for the viewers. What do you think? And do let us know below if you could watch more than one video!
Yes, it’s that time of the year agian: it’s fashionweek around the world and also in Amsterdam. Before we go on about the Lichting 2018 show, you must know that it is the first Amsterdam Fashion Week (AFW) without sponsoring by Mercedes-Benz, Dutch fashion entrepreneur Danie Bles is in charge now.
Museumplein in Amsterdam
Ms Bles changed fashion week in Amsterdam in a couple of ways. She introduced the “See Now, Buy Now’ formula, aimed at the consumer market. Programmed are catwalkshows by Hudson’s Bay, Penn&Ink N.Y., Silvian Heach, Goldbergh, 10DAYS, supermarket Lidl x Heidi Klum, Maison 365, Le Cafe Noir Studio & Jenneskens and Zoe Karssen. (We are not sure how many of these shops and/or brands are from The Netherlands) the location AFW has moved from the buildings at the Westergasfabriek complex to a tent on the Museumplein in Amsterdam, which is covered with grass.

Menswear shows in Paris: Rick Owens and Kenzo chose a similar kind of venue: Trend Alert! Buildings as a fashion show backdrop (a summer trend; it needs to be outside).This post is obviously not going to be a Mimi Runway report: we can’t see the actual clothes. But, what a spectacle it’s like the circus…..
Rick Owens’s fashion show for Spring-Summer 2018 was held at the courtyard of Palais de Tokyo / The finale of the KENZO Spring-Summer 2018 Men and Women’s show at the Lycée Camille Sée in Paris. (images via kenzo.com / i-d.vice.com)
