JEWISH FILM FESTIVAL
The idea for the film started off as a personal tribute to him as he was approaching his 80th birthday, and then it grew into a major initiative to capture this man’s life both in a film and a book. My intention was to leave a lasting memory of him that would inspire young people and re-inspire the older generation of hairdressers, as well as the millions of people in the world to whom the name Vidal Sassoon is either familiar or personal or evocative. Due to the fact that hairdressing’s impact on society has not been very well documented or recorded, much less respected because of the lack of any serious written material, I am hoping that this is something that every hairdresser in the world will want to share with everyone they know. by Michael Gordon

Anos Dourados, para a maioria das pessoas que viveram naquela epoca, signinifica “Anos encantados.”Nos anos dourados acontecia à literatura de Kerouac, o rock de garagem, os movimentos feministas.
Os movimentos civis em favor dos negros. Surgiram os Baianos e o Tropicalismo, a alegria, a vanguarda, a Pop Rock e o Brasil inteiro se deliciava com a batida ligth e o canto nasal da Bossa Nova.
Era moda demonstrar sinais de liberdade e Mary Quant incentivava a mini saia nas garotas de corpinho esbelto e de pernas bem torneadas.Veio a magreza de Twiggy, os batons claros em bocas tropicais, o cabelo Franjão e a velocidade do avião Concorde.De celebridades como Marilyn Monroe,Presidente JK, Marlon Brando, Dean Martin,Martin Luther King entre tantos outros.
The ZERO group was initiated in April 1957 with a series of exhibitions around the studios of Heinz Mack and Otto Piene in Düsseldorf. It went on to become one of the most significant collaborative movements of Post War art and eventually incorporated the work of Yves Klein, Lucio Fontana, Piero Manzoni, Daniel Spoerri, Jean Tinguely, and Günther Uecker among others. In addition to inexpensive studio space and the renowned Academy, artists were drawn to Düsseldorf by the gallery of Albert Schmela, which opened in May 1957 with an exhibition of Klein’s Monochromes and played a pivotal role in the development of ZERO art. While Klein was included in the seventh ZERO exhibition in April 1958, Fontana and Manzoni contributed to the eighth show the following month. Indeed, ZERO brought together protagonists of pioneering contemporary artistic movements from across Europe, including Nouveau réalisme and Arte Povera. The ideology of the ZERO group was voiced through its own eponymous magazine, which was published between 1958 and 1961 and included influential texts by Piene, Mack and Klein.
Born in Rosario, province of Santa Fe, Argentina of Italian parents,Fontana spent the first years of his life in Italy and came back to Argentina in 1905, where he stayed until 1922, working as a sculptor along with his father, and then on his own.
In 1927 he returned to Italy and studied under the sculptor Adolfo Wildt, and there he presented his first exhibition in 1930, organized by the Milano art gallery Il Milione. During the following decade he journeyed Italy and France, working with abstract and expressionist painters. In 1935 he joined the association Abstraction-Création in Paris and from 1936 to 1949 made expressionnist sculptures in ceramic and bronze.
In 1940 he returned to Argentina. In Buenos Aires (1946) he founded the Altamira academy together with some of his students, and made public the White Manifesto, where he states that “Matter, colour and sound in motion are the phenomena whose simultaneous development makes up the new art”. Back in Milano in 1947, he supported, along with writers and philosophers, the first manifesto of spatialism (Spazialismo)**. He also resumed his ceramics works in Albisola.
From 1949 on he started the so-called Spatial Concept or slash series, consisting in holes or slashes on the surface of monochrome paintings, drawing a sign of what he named “an art for the Space Age”. In 1948 Fontana experimented the use of neon with “Ambiente spaziale a luce nera” (Galleria del Naviglio, Milan). He then created an elaborate neon ceiling called “Luce spaziale” in 1951 for the Triennale in Milan. In 1959 he exhibited cut-off paintings with multiple combinable elements (he named the sets quanta). He participated in the Bienal de São Paulo and in numerous exhibitions in Europe (including London and Paris) and Asia, as well as New York.
Shortly before his death he was present at the “Destruction Art, Destroy to Create” demonstration at the Finch College Museum of New York. Then he left his home in Milano and went to Comabbio (in the province of Varese, Italy), his family’s mother town, where he died in 1968.
Fontana’s works can be found in the permanent collections of more than one hundred museums around the world. He was the sculptor of the bust of Ovidio Lagos, founder of the La Capital newspaper, in Carrara marble.

Styling is probably one of the most misunderstood professions of all. For many people, a “stylist” is merely a person who cuts hair and applies makeup.When one says,”I’m a stylist”,the first thing that comes into our mind is probably a beauty salon
a person who designs, creates, or advises on, current styles, as in dresses, shoes, make up, etiquette, photo soots, marketing campaings, editorials ;
- a person who styles hair, apparel, interiors, exteriors, merchandise, tabletops, furniture, landscapes.

Adriana Sassoon has a unique background in fashion and beauty and is one of those rare people – whether behind the scenes or in front of the camera- that achieves what she sets out to accomplish. At age thirteen, an age at which a young person’s ideas are still fluid, she knew she had a particular fondness for the classical disciplines. She was already flirting with fashion working as a top model for Elite Model Management where her beauty appeared in countless magazine advertisements, fashion shows, and television commercials.
From her native Sao Paulo, Brazil, Adriana graduated “The Ecole des Beaux’s- Arts” with her first degree in Industrial Design before arriving in the United States where she received a second degree in Interior Design from the FIDM Los Angeles.Adriana, who is fluent in Portuguese, Spanish, French and English, has an elite work history. A Docent for the French Trade Commission Exhibition “Les Paris des Createurs”. Adriana always kept a close eye on fashion. “I pick up on its vibrations”. Adriana embarks into the realm of fashion accessories as she proudly introduces her latest project. The creation of “Adriana Sassoon Handbags” is a supported idea by her family and friends. Adriana Sassoon has a Handbag Company with the focus in Minimalist Design. The main ingredient is to help a Charity founded by her father and mentor as well as charities that work with children of developing countries”…. . “If I can make a difference by doing what I love and being able to help others in need, what a marvelous accomplishment!

A Celebration of the Vienna 1900 Painters.

The collection created by Adriana Sassoon Scarf Handbags was inspired by one of the founders of the Vienna Secession association. Koloman Moser was born in Austria and became a famous architect, designer, and painter. He was a very important figure in the initiation process of the movement after joining Klimt, Schiele, and Kokoschka. The Adriana Sassoon Handbag debut Collection combines predominantly geometric features creating a rhythmical space of cubic forms in which the bags were designed. The strong contrasting colors of the flower and circular scarf patterns compliment the overall design. The ornamentation of the bags is finalized by a Swarovski broach, symbolizing the feminine figure. The Jugendstil style or Young Style (+/- 20 years) so called in Germany or otherwise known as Art nouveau in France, started at the end of the XIX century. I chose this particular style to begin my collection to celebrate the freedom we enjoy now. I am paying homage to the artists that had to fight in order to live their dreams in an age in which the Nazis closed the famous Bauhaus of Dessau. Many atrocities were done to the human race during that period and unfortunately still exist. The collection celebrates the new Parisian trend amongst boutiques, opened by architects and designers, who want more than just being able to create beautiful clothes or buildings. I would like the artistic community to be recognized by ones work and not just as a label or mere product. I think that one must protest against the so-called business individuals who purchase art and/or a craft business, and change the designs to appeal to a commercial mass market. This movement is killing branding images and any form of association with the original concept from the designer. Through my work I would like to utilize an artistic vehicle to reiterate the rejection of the “plastic society”. The phrase “less is more” needs to truly take shape in the 21st century. The business world can work in tandem with the art world by joining forces and understanding each other’s strengths. The final creations will then take form and are better then the work we see today. The human community needs to pray for peace and protest war as the artistic movements have done in the past.
I would like be able to communicate with my buyers and call their attention to what we all know matters in life after all. We are all human beings and must treat each other well. In starting this adventure I will be able to help other people and create a better world to live in. Every one of us has to try to make a difference. To find more information about The Vienna painters “Klimt, Schiele, Moser, & Kokoschka Vienna 1900” the “Galleries Nationales du Grand Palais” in Paris presented an exhibition. The exhibition was held October 2005 to January 2006 or can be studied online at http://www.paris.org. The main sponsor was LVMH.

Henri Marie Raymond de Toulouse-Lautrec-Monfa or simply Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (French pronunciation: [ɑ̃ʁi də tuluz loˈtʁɛk]) (24 November 1864 – 9 September 1901) was a French painter, printmaker, draftsman, and illustrator, whose immersion in the colourful and theatrical life of fin de siècle Paris yielded an œuvre of exciting, elegant and provocative images of the modern and sometimes decadent life of those times. Toulouse-Lautrec is known along with Cézanne, Van Gogh, and Gauguin as one of the greatest painters of the Post-Impressionist period.
Physically unable to participate in most of the activities typically enjoyed by men of his age, Toulouse-Lautrec immersed himself in his art. He became an important Post-Impressionist painter, art nouveau illustrator, and lithographer; and recorded in his works many details of the late-19th-century bohemian lifestyle in Paris.When the nearby Moulin Rouge cabaret opened its doors, Toulouse-Lautrec was commissioned to produce a series of posters. Thereafter, the cabaret reserved a seat for him, and displayed his paintings.Among the well-known works that he painted for the Moulin Rouge and other Parisian nightclubs are depictions of the singer Yvette Guilbert; the dancer Louise Weber, known as the outrageous La Goulue (“The Glutton”), who created the “French Can-Can“; and the much more subtle dancer Jane Avril.

Such gatherings, festivities of Carnival, were paralleled from the 15th century by increasingly elaborate allegorical Entries, pageants and triumphal processions celebrating marriages and other dynastic events of late medieval court life. Masquerade balls were extended into costumed public festivities in Italy during the 16th century Renaissance (Italian, maschera). They were generally elaborate dances held for members of the upper classes, and were particularly popular in Venice. They have been associated with the tradition of the Venetian Carnival. With the fall of the Venetian Republic at the end of the 18th century, the use and tradition of masks gradually began to decline, until they disappeared altogether.
In 1979, a group of young Venetians interested in theatre and culture had the idea of reviving the Carnival in Venice. Now the visitors that crowd Venice in the last week before the beginning of the Lent reach the figure of more than 500.000 and the traditional spirit of the Carnival pervades again the city. Identities again become confused. The division between reality and illusion, between past and present, never very clearly defined in Venice at any time, indistinguishably merge.
They became popular throughout mainland Europe in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, sometimes with fatal results. Gustav III of Sweden was assassinated at a masquerade ball by disgruntled nobleman Jacob Johan Anckarström, an event which Eugène Scribe turned into the opera Gustave III.

The “Bal des Ardents” (“Burning Men’s Ball”) was intended as a Bal des sauvages (“Wild Men’s Ball”) a costumed ball (morisco). It was in celebration of the marriage of a lady-in-waiting of Charles VI of France’s queen in Paris on January 28, 1393. The King and five courtiers dressed as wildmen of the woods (woodwoses), with costumes of flax and pitch. When they came too close to a torch, the dancers caught fire. (This episode may have influenced Edgar Allan Poe‘s short story “Hop-Frog”.) Such costumed dances were a special luxury of the ducal court of Burgundy.

John James Heidegger, a Swiss count, is credited with having introduced the Venetian fashion of a semi-public masquerade ball, to which one might subscribe, to London in the early eighteenth century, with the first being held at Haymarket Opera House. Throughout the century the dances became popular, both in England and Colonial America. Its prominence did not go unchallenged; a significant anti-masquerade movement grew alongside the balls themselves. The anti-masquerade writers (among them such notables as Henry Fielding) held that the events encouraged immorality and “foreign influence”. While they were sometimes able to persuade authorities to their views, enforcement of measures designed to end masquerades was at best desultory made.

Masquerade balls were sometimes set as a game among the guests. The masked guests were supposedly dressed so as to be unidentifiable. This would create a type of game to see if a guest could determine each others’ identities. This added a humorous effect to many masques and enabled a more enjoyable version of typical balls.
A ex-top model Elite e designer Adriana Sassoon, de passagem por São Paulo, comemorou com um jantar e também com muitas informações importantes sobre o estado da arte em Design, Moda e Ações Ambientais no Brasil.
Detentora da griffe Sassi, ela expressa sua forte convicção. “Se eu posso fazer a diferença fazendo algo que eu adoro e sendo capaz de ajudar quem precisa, é então uma maravilhosa realização.” Esta preocupação social é marca registrada de Cláudio, seu pai e mentor intelectual da AME, uma entidade filantrópica do Jabaquara que cuida de 350 crianças e jovens carentes.
Presentes no jantar, Clara Oh e Frederico Viebig, com suas idéias de sinalização ambiental, reciclagem e sustentalidade puderam ouvir junto com Adriana, Mauro Camargo e Paulo Correia que pincelaram as idéias que norteiam o excelente programa não governamental VivaMundo que se desdobra em campanha de 21 ítens de mobilização ecológica urbana que o Instituto Triangulo lançou que de fato mudam tudo.
Adriana embarca dia 10 de março e tem perspectivas de formatar um projeto de negócios com raízes e desdobramentos no exterior (o que já é muito consagrado principalmente envolvendo o design amazônico extraído das ervas, dos aromas e das frutas de polpa, do Pantanal, do eco design, da madeira e da flora e fauna nacional, etc.) Ela fala em design de moda, da beleza, do acessório que envolve campanhas bem feitas com atitudes comportamentais de mudança e de contrapartida social para minimizar e erradicar pobreza.
