Impresarios, Take Note

The latest issue of Acne Paper has a great interview with the lovely Cecilia Dean (whose singular aesthetic has long made her one of my few personal style icons).
Cecilia Dean with Baroness, Lady Bunny, and James Kaliardos
at the launch party for
Visionaire 18. Fashion Special,
held at Mr. Chow in NYC (1996).

Here, Cecilia talks about the conception behind, and evolution of, Visionaire's legendary launch parties – and describes how their design and curation has played an important role in the creative life of the multi-format publication she helped found. Having attended a few of these with Strath when we lived in New York, I can attest to the fact that Cecilia throws a fabulous and memorable get-together. Read and learn.

...And as always, much, much more to enjoy between the current (party-themed) issue's covers.

Acne Paper is available at fine newsstands everywhere (in Seattle, check Bulldog News in the U-District).
