"Where do you work?" After making the switch to men's fetishwear brand Nastypig, fashion designer Kevin Jaedon wants people to know that he is NOT a nasty pig!
Kevin discusses how all brands give off distinct connotations. Whether designed to be high fashion, conservative and work-oriented, or to wear at the International Mister Leather convention, you never know who might actually be the brains behind what you are wearing!

La nostra storia
BY DRAGONFLY (BENEDETTA GELLI AND VIRGINIA VARENNA)
@ VOL 10
ON FEB 24, 2016
La storia di cui vi vogliamo parlare è la nostra. Parte dalla scelta di aprire una sartoria in un momento in cui la moda è usa e getta, in cui la qualità del tessuto non ha più valore e i modelli in circolazione sono sempre gli stessi. Una sartoria di nuova generazione dove le attività non si fermano alla scelta del tessuto o alla realizzazione dell'abito, ma attraverso laboratori e workshop, fa riscoprire alle persone la passione per l'artigianalità e svecchia questo antico mestiere.
Diseñar desde el corazón consciente

ON APR 28, 2016
Papusa nace de mi necesidad personal de conseguir franelas y ropa que fuese un poquito más distinta a lo normal, hace 4-5 años que empecé a hacer esto. Mucha gente dice yo no compro aquí sino cuando viajo o lo que sea, también pasa que cuando consigues ropa acá es muy normal que sea en tiendas donde los tirajes son muy grandes y es común que te puedas conseguir lo mismo en muchas personas; entonces eso no me gustaba para nada y empecé a vestirme muy unicolor, hasta que en un momento dije ya va, si me gustan los estampados y yo quisiera un estampado qué me pondría, porque eso de llevar una marca encima jamás me ha gustado, para llevar una franela que tenga una marca gigante en el pecho me tienen que pagar, gratis no hago publicidad, entonces dije a ver qué me pondría yo, qué diría yo, cómo lo haría yo y empecé a pintar a mano esas franelas unicolores.

PKN Barcelona for Haiti
Not only do we get some great photos by Benjamin Julve -- with more to see in this Flickr photoset -- but here's also a rundown by organizer Petz Scholtus of this past Saturday's Haiti event in Barcelona, sent out as a newsletter to that city's mailing list. Last Saturday (20. Feb), all the hard work of organising a PechaKucha Night in Barcelona in less than 4 weeks paid off. PechaKucha Vol. 8 was a very special night with speakers that made us think, made us laugh or triggered curiosity, moved us and even taught us how to be sexy! The most beautiful thing about the event though, is the participation of many people towards one goal: raise money for Architecture for Humanity (AFH) and the reconstruction in Haiti. In Barcelona alone, we raised over 2.300€, yay! Within the next few days, we should know how much the more than 150 cities raised together in "PechaKucha for Haiti" this month! If you haven’t yet or feel generous again, please donate here. It all started on Saturday around 15:00 when Mark and Astrid (the incredible founders of PechaKucha) kicked of the global 24-hour WAVEcast via Ustream. At 18.30 the Barcelona PechaKucha took place at La Sedeta, who offered us the space for free so that all the money from the entrance tickets could go towards AFH. Giovanna Carnevali, an architect from Barcelona-based Architecture for Humanity Spain, kicked of the night with her presentation about the work AFH does in Haiti, as well as some projects the local chapter is working on. Next up was Chené Gómez, who spoke about his NGO Creart, and how it feels to be teaching art to kids in difficult situations (Palestina, India, Thailand after the Tsunami). Martí Guixé, ex-designer, presented his business models, such as “pfic bar,” a frozen public fountain that turns into a bar chilling drinks, or the “Liquid Menu Restaurant,” where as you might guess, all the dishes are liquid, and inspired by the Spanish gazpacho. When our stomach muscles were already hurting from so much laughter, Michelle Felip showed us her project “Pixing” (pronounce ‘pishing’), which campaigns for decent public toilets in Barcelona, also for girls! Xavi Padrós showed beautiful photographs called “anonyms.” The photos were of clever, funny and ingenious bothed jobs Padrós collected over the year in Barcelona. To finish of the first part of the night, Lily introduced us to the art of striptease and even taught us a few moves! After the beer break (thanks to Estrella Damm we had all our costs such as cleaning and security covered!), Gerard Sanmartí from La Granja design Studio, showed a ‘real’ project he did some years ago, of an exhibition design with floating pieces of art. Then, Jessica Leung took us on her personal journey from making movies in LA and quitting Hollywood in order to start Dos Velas with her partner Paco, to make documentaries in close contact with people of different cultures and ethics around the world. Architect Toni Solana presented his project of the Fábrica del Sol, an 8-year-long project of a eco-friendly renovation of an old gas factory, respecting the four elements of water, fire, earth and wind. Dress for Success, shown by Stephany Baskin, DfS Austin founder, is the story of how a woman gained back her self-esteem and changed her life by being given a dress along with a few tips for a job interview. A big dose of Catalan humour was handed to us by designer Marcel Fernández, and his curious story of how Amanito was born. To finish of the night, Ricardo Fernández, organizer of PechaKucha in Panamá, explained why his country is the country of steroids, and why the Panamanians wear a lot of clothes in winter (even if winter in Panama doesn’t exists!) Last but not least, Maximilian Kamenar from Pecha Kucha Vienna who also happened to be in town, greeted the very lively and cheerful audience. All through the last presentations, Doris and Victor from On i On, together with Aniol and Leonor from Ecogent, were waiting to join the live-streaming WAVEcast via PechaKucha Tokyo, but unfortunately we missed each other. We were however, connected by spirit and want to give kudos to Mark and Astrid, Tomoko and Jean and their team in Tokyo for organising this international Pecha Kucha x Haiti with so much enthusiasm and energy! Barcelona enjoys being part of the big picture! Thank you to everyone who donated to AFH and made it to our eighth PechaKucha in Barcelona, to the speakers who did an amazing job, to La Sedeta and Estrella Damm and to Tree-Nation for planting a tree for each speaker in order to reduce our event’s ecological footprint and to all our friends who helped out. We hope to see you in April for Vol. 9! And it was a PechaKucha reunion of sorts as well with, pictured below (from left) Ricardo from PK Panama, two members from the team bringing PK to Bilbao (coming soon), and Maximilan from PK Vienna.
PKN Champaign-Urbana Vol. 2
PechaKucha Night in Champaign-Urbana Vol. 2 may have been held back in January, but hey, it's never too late to take a look at how an event went, and we're thankful to organizer Christina Tapp for sending us this report on the terrific event they put together. First, start by checking out this pre-show stop-motion video that fellow organizer Anastasia Tumanova created for the event (and here's a link to a pre-show video that was created for Vol. 1). All of the photos were taken Wallo Villacorta, Chris Perardi, and Jason Bentley. Champaign-Urbana’s second PechaKucha Night, held in January at the Canopy Club, boasted a vibrant crowd of over 400 people with 12 awesome presentations and one rockin' emcee. It was an explosion of creativity, from graphic designers and digital arts to silkscreening and book design; from a world traveler and a photographer to sustainable farmers; and from hiStories and a local charcuterie maker (who brought some pickled tongue to share!) to mad scientists and a bubbleologist! Kicking off the celebration with videos by Anastasia Tumanova and Jason Bentley, PK Vol. 2 also boasted an artist in the audience who decided to sketch the presenters in 6 minutes and 40 seconds while enjoying the show, along with an after party with two bands and pizza (mmmmm!) Starting the show with a little lesson in pronouncing PechaKucha, environment designer and emcee Andy Warfel (he was also a fab PK Vol. 1 presenter) held the night's event together seamlessly, with his laid-back sense of humor. Paul Young discussed the challenges of balancing work and play for creativity and fun. His philosophy? Play evolves into work and work becomes fun. The result is a more fulfilling life. Wes Jarrell & Leslie Cooperband, the proud owners of Prairie Fruits Farm & Creamery, talked about making artisan and farmstead goat and sheep milk cheeses, raising organic fruits and hosting all-local foods dinners on their farm—in a poem! Kelly Searsmith showed us how contemporary artists use emergent digital media to inspire a deepened sense of humanity and social connection. William Gillespie & Cristy Scoggins, writers, designers and pop-culture addicts who run the independent publishing house Spineless Books and host the radio program Rock Geek FM, talked about how the end of commercial publishing equals the beginning of book art. Bryan Heaton shocked the crowd with his storytelling photographs that attempt to exploit the multi-layered meaning of images. Theodore Gray, author of Mad Science: Experiments You Can Do at Home–But Probably Shouldn’t, along with photographer Nick Mann, wowed the audience with tales of mad science and the elements. Laurence Mate, a local charcuterie maker discussed Abligurition n (ab- away, off + ligurire to be lickerish), highlighting the cultural ways humans use the tongue—for speech, expression and repression. Laurence even brought samples of pickled tongue to share! (Don't knock it until you've tried it...) Amy Lin & Eric Shine, working as one Borg-like entity of creativity, presented on hiStories—10 factual and craaayayayaaaaaaazy stories from the pages of history. Viewers discretion was advised—it contained scenes that may not have been suitable for sensitive audiences, including screaming guitars, Microsoft Paint bloodbaths and maggots wearing clothes. Jillian Nickell took us along on her adventures in silk screening and t-shirt illustration. Keihly Moore gave us peek into the lives of the Roma: a traveling story of a traveling people living on the margins of European society. Doug Burgett, a graphic designer by trade, an artist at heart and an astronaut in his dreams, captivated the audience with stories of misunderstood artistic endeavors and creative pursuits. Mark Peckham passionately spoke about coming to the realization that it's his true calling to bring joy to the world through the uncanny power of bubbles, which magically filled the air after his presentation! Keep an eye out for presentations posted from Vol. 2 that will continue to help raise money for Haiti. Our next event will take place on Friday, April 16 at the the Canopy Club as part of this year's Boneyard Arts Festival.
PKN Zagreb Vol. 6
PechaKucha Night in Zagreb Vol. 6 certainly rocked its outdoor venue last week, and here's co-organizer Jelena Mihelcic with a report on the evening's proceedings. PechaKucha Night in Zagreb Vol. 6 gathered 12 presenters and around 400 people in the audience. For the first time outdoors, in the courtyard of the club Mocvara (Swamp), designers, theater and visual artists, and one scientist had their first PechaKucha experience. Davor Jadrijević tried to explain his invention, a device for wireless energy transfer, in a very approachable way, which he also presented physically after all the presentations had finished, so that all the curious people who had additional questions could ask them directly. Renowned theater director Ivica Buljan talked about his play Garage, Ira Payer and Tomo Ricov explained the idea behind the recent D-Day, while Marina Pirs had a very poetic and impressive presentation about Bead by Bead, the first fair trade company in Croatia. It is a company that sells hand-made jewelry from Uganda, investing 20 percent of its profits back into the community producing the jewelry. Interesting and fun presentations were staged by the designers Dario Devic and Hrvoje Zivcic, the authors of the poster for this PechaKucha Night, and a fashion designer Branka Scepanovic (ROBA) who talked about what's behind the expensive clothes they make. Kristina Lenard, Elvis Krstulović and Iva Kovac represented the visual arts, and the inevitable architects were this time represented by Goran Rako, a very well established Croatian author. PechaKucha Night in Zagreb started off in January 2009 and was initiated and organized by the agency Bruketa&Zinic, 3LHD, Komakino and Lana Cavar. Including this one, PechaKucha Night in Zagreb has so far hosted a total of 57 presentations, with 91 presenters and 380 minutes of program that has been seen by around 3,500 spectators. We would like to thank our supporters: AVC Zagreb, Mocvara club, Pogon - Zagreb center for independent culture and youth, Croatian Ministry of Culture, City Department for Education, Culture and Sport, AVC Zagreb, Box Packaging and Vector Design! You'll find more photos from PKN Zagreb Vol. 6 in this Flickr photoset.
PKN Quito + Inspire Japan
Quito will take part in the Global PechaKucha Day - Inspire Japan event on April 16 -- we're including details in this post from PKN Quito organizer Francisco Mejia, and all three posters for the event, but you'll also find some details in Spanish on the official event page.We will have a special guest that is going to perform, Tyler Spencer, a DIDJERIDU performer who has been traveling around South America and during his journey through Quito he very generously offered to perform for free at our event. We are also planing to have a tent where people attending the event can donate and share their talents, it could be all sorts of design material, clothes, paintings, CDs, etc. The idea is that everyone can contribute (even if they are not on the presenters list) by selling their stuff and the profits will also be donated to the cause. Our talented designer Andrés Pacheco from Mokenke has put up 3 designs for the event poster. The idea is to use background images that can inspire peace and hope. The event will be held at Centro Cultural EL AGUJON on Saturday, April 16th at 8:00pm. More info on the event and how people can help and contribute can be found on our local website.
PKN Barcelona Vol. 13
Here's a look at the recent PechaKucha Night in Barcelona Vol. 13, as well as a report from organizer Petz Scholtus (pictured above). All photos were taken by Benjamin Julve, and there's more to see in this Flickr photoset -- and the full list of presenters with links is on the event page. Please note that the next PKN in Barcelona (Vol. 14) is already set for November 25.The 13th night in Barcelona was a great success with plenty of postitive energy, very diverse topics and nice cold beer. We had Ferran presenting a mobile home theatre, Jordi showed his work with Gaudí on the lighting of the Sagrada Familia, and Michelle did roller dancing on the stage! Karolina showed us the behind the scenes of her animation Migrópolis and painter Jonathan Dalton told little love stories. Jon explained why ecodesign isn't about being sexy, Ben, or Detective Serio, took us time travelling through Barcelona and the design duo Compeixalaigua told both lies and the truth. Lluís showed surprising coincidences of strangely similar design projects, Guim explained why he loves petrol (inside the earth, not used!), Valentina shared tips of how to live with only 33 pieces of clothes every 3 months and Roger showed the beautiful art work that him and Gerard make nature do.
Finding Motivation in Film, Soccer-inspired Clothing, and a Video from Charleston
Presentations As you'll discover in his presentation (from PKN Toronto Vol. 14), Emmanuel Lopez -- aka Motivatorman -- has a blog that talks about how different films can help people overcome difficult times. Gianni Stevano's presentation (in Italian, from PKN Genoa Vol. 3) is about how he came to produce -- or what inspired -- the new Master of the Midfield clothing line. It is expressed through the memory of playing on the road, in the sand, or anywhere else where there are no restrictions. Posters Our last addition to the Tumblr blog this week as we head into the weekend is the poster for tomorrow night's PKN Yogyakarta Vol. 4 (pictured). Video We offered a peek at the recent PKN Charleston Vol. 15 just the other day, and now here's a video highlight of the event, to give you a better idea of how things went down. Calendar The weekend starts tonight (October 12) with PKN Bogota Vol. 9, PKN Longmont Vol. 8, PKN Pune Vol. 6, and PKN Seattle Vol. 39. On Saturday we have PKN Ostrava Vol. 9 and the aforementioned PKN Yogyakarta Vol. 4, and then on Sunday it's PKN Whistler Vol. 7.
Interaction through Fashion
Receive a hug from thousands of miles away, change the color of your clothing on a whim; this is the future of fashion. In today's Presentation of the Day, "Interaction through Fashion" from a special Tokyo Designers Week 2013 edition of PKN Tokyo Vol. 107, Francesca Rosella (of wearable technology fashion house Cute Circuit) shows off some of her company's new designs and what she predicts the fashion of the future will be like. Cute Circuit has created shirts that can be used to hug someone from across the world, dresses that can be used as a mobile phone, a dress that displays your tweets, and clothes whose color can be changed through a mobile phone app.

Matthew Hawkins-INCLUSIVE CONTEMPORARY In reality, an inclusive contemporary dance class happens every Tuesday under the glass roof of studio 1 at Dancebase (Grassmarket Edinburgh). The session is inclusive to people with all sorts of profiles, ability and experience. All are welcome. Sculpted dance moves and manoeuvres are made accessible and designed to flow seamlessly by the class teacher. His formula is both evolved and immediate. Valued moments of absorbtion, consent and confidence potentially emerge for the individual and the group, thanks to a good connection with this dancing and this place. The hour is eventful. The studio's zones and features amount to a special vessel and asset. Architecture Fringe followers are invited to participate in the class - booking (and loose comfortable clothes) essential. The classes will be followed by a pop-up photo exhibition and discussion elsewhere on the premises, free and open to all. www.matthewhawkinsdance.co.uk
