On December 1st, I launched Project inter-Mission! WOW! This has been a long time coming and I'm super excited for you all to experience Paris! Of course you dont have to BE in Paris to "be inspired" to think of clothing differently. Over next year, I will share soooo many ways to be be inspired, think differently, become more conscious of what you are wearing and how you are wearing it.
Didnt see my announcement? Check it out here!
[In April, I started formulating how I can make a bigger impact in the world of fashion and styling. I've pondered which fashion projects I wanted to pursue in order to combine fashion and sustainability, something very near to my heart.
As you know, I decided to combine the "what" I love, with the "where" I love and make the jump to move back to Paris. I have been here since July when the French government granted me a visa to do this fashion and sustainability project. October I received my official working papers and since then have been working on launching "project intermission!"
With "project intermission" I offer inside fashion experiences in Paris exclusively at ethical and independent designer ateliers (studios where they make the garments, not boutiques), helping people think differently about clothing. In 4 hours, we will go through coaching, see street fashion, see galleries, how designers make the clothing and of course shop. Its special because once you have an insiders view of the "how" of fashion, feel natural textiles, and customize what you want from each designer, you wont want to ever let it go to the landfill!
I remembered the real reason I fell in love with fashion in the first place. It was about styling and in Paris, how could I not be inspired by its artistry, texture of the pavement, architecture, lighting at night and attitude on slow or sustainable fashion. At its core foundation of a culture, France is known for everything handcrafted, ethical, quality, recycled, pure, natural, local, slow - sustainable.
It inspired me to think of clothing and style in a different way and I want to show people what I see and how they can use this French philosophy to make changes in their own clothing choices. They take the “hippie” out of “eco” - no patch work craziness here!
Tomorrow I am RE-launching my consulting and styling business and I'd love you to be a part of that. Have a look at my new web site: www.tyesecooper.com. Review the Paris Experience and if you are inspired to share this news with others, Id love it!]
