Welcome to Click Click, the fairly regular roundup of what I find worth clicking on the internet.
- Discovering sunday magazine paper doll challenge through an idle Google search was an absolute pleasure. Ilsha’s deft take on paper art and doll play is tremendously inspiring. That it ties in New York Times magazines, history and current events, AND an homage to Project Runway – an absolute delight to find a blog that feels like it was made just for me, combining so many things that fascinate me and reinterpreting them from a completely new angle. Bravo!
- Also enjoying the mix of musings and media from Montreal quarterly Maisonneuve.
- Dita von Teese is the ONLY celebrity I follow on twitter – she manages to walk the narrow line between reality and fantasy with such incredible facility – and in sky-high heels to boot. I also really dig this article where she talks with great candour and practicality about money. Her great reverence for history and couture is equally admirable – loved this slideshow on her favoured corsetier, Mr. Pearl.
- Some very lucky Toronto fashion people had the chance to rework Barbie into their own image – I love Nathalie Atkinson’s peek into the process of Barbification. I also enjoyed her recent post profiling designer Evan Biddell’s new retail space.
- Speaking of dolls, Australian online magazine sesame has an adorable paper doll feature in the current issue. Click “Dress me Up”.
- An amazing interview with photographer David LaChappelle about work, art and fame.
- Awakened Aesthetic talks American Apparel. What do you think?
- There is a huge, growing archive of so many amazing things online – I just discovered this site which connects to old movies among other media. I find it a wonderful, unexpected advantage that the limitations of copyright are encouraging us to re-explore a lot of media which has been forgotten. This is a timely development, I am discovering the preoccupations of our own time found their real genesis at the beginning of the last century.
- Designer NADA is exploring the possibilities of 3D technology for showing fashion – check out her exciting video-game inspired fashion film here – you can even get a pair of 3D glasses by writing in with an old-fashioned SASE.
Karma for commenters and linkers, cheers!
