Lox, Lorenzo... ME!!
A little introduction about the author and the blog itself. Plus contacts and CVs... You never know!

A Selection of the best pictures that I have taken all over the world during the years, all nicely indexed by year and geographical area. Jolly good!

History of this Blog
A collection of all the articles that I have wrote so far, divided by month/year.

I have had the bad idea of writing my e-mail address on the board before, so this time I'll try to prevent some spam to get to me by putting this little image.. Let's hope it does the trick!

[19th-20th July]

Tenjikai means "exhibition" in Japanese, it's one of the words that you get to know quickly if you work with Japan in the fashion industry.

These last two days have been quite heavy, under the physical and mental point of view.

Physically because we had to stand all day long, with little chance to sit, from 9 AM till 6 PM; mentally because of course we were showing a collection that I never seen before (it was selected by my colleagues prior to my arrival) so I had really little to say to the clients about it.
On the physical and mental stress also my best friend "jet lag" came into the picture, making things a lot harder.
In any case the first hurdle (the exhibition) has been brilliantly overcome, I actually quite enjoyed having finally something to do, seeing a lot of clients and different people.

Now the weekend awaits, at the time of writing I am really struggling to keep my eyes opened, but I must not sleep until at least midnight, otherwise I'll never stabilize the jet lag...

Kutsu: YES!! Tokyo Forum was better though at least I could seat for some time, or even Premiere Vision was ok as normally there are tables to speak to the clients... Oh well, it could have been worse! :D

Yes, and Otsukare sama desu from me too!

Sometimes feeling exhausted from work can be very satisfying. (takusan shigoto shitara, manzoku inaru).

Glad you enjoyed some of the work, Lox! When I was in Engineering, umpteen years ago, I used to love doing shows. Mainly because of the free food and drink, it has to be said, but... ;)

Nigel: Alas there were not free drinks or food, save for the night before the first day when we had a sort of "pre-show" dinner...
