Dear Shaded Viewers,

For Alex Mattsson's second live presentation he took his inspiration from the large-scale immigration of the Latin Community to California in 1940's America merging references from kitsch-Americana and post war gangster culture with Zoot Suits, work-wear and South American inspired denim mixes.

Diane, I still have goosebumps regarding the fact that I actually had the pleasure in meeting you today! I've been reading your blog for years, which is to me a portal into your creative mind- so I was in absolute awe to see that we were actually in the same vicinity! (Usually you're just on my desktop or iPhone lol)

I told my Saint Maarten fashionistas too and one of them told me that they had the same reaction when they saw you in Paris. You are truly more than an amazing style icon as you are an absolutely remarkable person as well

Thanks for the foto upload and your sincere kindness. Stay humble and beautiful xo
