"Future Beauty" -Seattle Art Museum - Japanase Fashion Designers Exhibition, from June 27 to September 08, 2013

Future Beauty , Seattle Art Museum Exhibition. From June 27 to Sep 08, 2013

The tremendous innovation of Japanese fashion designers who have revolutionized the way we think of fashion today will be shown for the first time in Seattle at SAM. 

The leading Japanese designers who initially gained recognition in the West were Kenzo Takada and Issey Miyake in the 1970s, but it is in the 1980s that Japanese designers emerged with an entirely new aesthetic. In the summer of 1983, Rei Kawakubo and Yohji Yamamoto launched a stark new aesthetic at the Paris runway shows. 

Based on monochrome black and white, they presented asymmetric and at times artfully perforated designs, which loosely skimmed the female silhouette. 

Recognized as a radical counterproposal to Western notions of the fitted gown, their designs gained instant notoriety.

This was the beginning of what is now three decades of innovative design that has in turn influenced and reshaped our Western aesthetics of dress. 

Curated by Akiko Fukai, director of the Kyoto Costume Institute, the exhibition showcases the early emphasis on light and shadow, and the increasingly diverse ultramodern designs that range from the deconstruction and reinvention of Western couture models to wildly revolutionary designs that draw from contemporary street fashion.

Eighty gowns will be featured, ranging from the classic to the outrageous, by celebrated designers such as Rei Kawakubo, Yohji Yamamoto, Issey Miyake, Kenzo Takada, Junya Watanabe, Jun Takahashi and others, videos of runway shows, artist photographs, magazines and ephemera designed by renowned international artists like Gilbert and George and Cindy Sherman. 

This exhibition promises to be a fascinating experience and rare opportunity to view these unique creations firsthand.

Destinos maduros - Implementación criterios medioambientales y desarrollo sostenible versus decadencia.

¿Como desarrollar un destino turístico maduro, cuyas características suelen centrarse en la sobre-ocupación,  el estancamiento económico, la ausencia casi completa del concepto sostenibilidad, la saturación de los recursos, sus infraestructuras obsoletas, etc?.

 Podríamos seguir nombrando estas características hasta caer en el error que nos lleva a la decadencia total del destino; pero en este caso se ha decidido recuperar la solidez del destino y a través de un proceso de planificación volver a conseguir un destino en su máximo esplendor turístico. Para ello se han establecido una consecuencia de fases que deben ser analizadas y llevadas a la práctica una por una. 

Entre ellas es imperativo destacar el concepto de la proyección de desarrollo sostenible, un elemento imprescindible en la actualidad gracias a un mercado muy competitivo y una demanda cada vez más exigente y concienciada. 

Este concepto se aleja mucho de una planificación con la antigua visión del beneficio económico como único objetivo y fin, cuya única orientación solía enfocarse en el uso del suelo y como sacarle el máximo beneficio a este (especulación urbanística).

Hoy en día no debemos permitir que un destino turístico no cumpla con los criterios medioambientales que la palabra sostenibilidad implica, por lo que el desarrollo no se puede definir como tal si este no lleva implícito la sostenibilidad. 

Por supuesto, no olvidemos tampoco que la rentabilidad es importante, pero no es nuestro único fin.

Travelling with dogs 1 - Corsica - France - L´Ile de la Beauté

<Traveling with Dogs> <1> Corsica island - La Corse - France

Barbra and Winkka, my dog

If you’re thinking of traveling with dogs, Corsica is one of the most pet friendly travel destinations in Europe. Corsica welcomes pets in most hotels, campsites, beaches, cafes, hiking trails and even boat rides so traveling with dogs on this island is not that difficult. The tricky part is transporting a pet to Corsica by ferry since pet travel policy differs among operators.

Air France and their partner airlines are pet friendly and passengers carrying small pets can even bring them (in their carriers) inside the passenger cabin.
For those traveling by ferry, I recommend choosing an operator like Corsica Ferries. Below is their official pet travel policy, as of this writing:
" Pets are allowed on board our ferries. Cats and other small animals have to be kept in a suitable cage during the trip. There is no fee. You have to buy a ticket for dogs (19 €). Dogs on board have to be on a lead and wear a muzzle. You can walk freely on board with your dog except for the restaurants" .

Pet Friendly Accommodations

Thanks to a new online service, www.officialpethotels.com  now you can easily search for pet friendly accommodations in Corsica and worldwide. They are partnered with booking.com and offer the same rates as the ones listed in booking.com.
When searching online for other types of accommodations such as holiday residences and campsites, look for a pets welcome logo or specify “pets allowed” in your search criteria.

Once you Arrive

Some Corsicans seem to view their dogs as a regular member of their family run business. In many areas of the island, it is not uncommon to find medium to large sized dogs, walking freely through stores, cafes and even hotel lobbies.
These “working” dogs are used to mingling with tourists and are usually well behaved, however one never knows if a small yapping dog or a child may startle them. For this reason, if you bring a small dog with you, try to keep it on a leash or inside a carrying case, at least until you know the larger dog poses no threat to your pet, or to your child.

Areas were Dogs are not Permitted

Dogs are not allowed in any of the mountain refuges of the Natural Park and in most museums. Animals are not allowed in the Lavezzi islands either since they are a part of a nature reserve
