Habana 3 A.M. with the character Max Vogue premieres at La Jolla Fashion Film Festival. This fashion film was the first fashion film to film in Cuba.

  • What makes this a fashion film?

Fashion is what inspired the main character of this film, Max Vogue. He is an angst-ridden fashion superhero who seeks for the truth.

  • How does location play into the screenplay of the film? 

I had in mind filming in Cuba to capture the glamour and luxury. Cuba provided a perfect backdrop for 1950s and juxtapose the traditions. The mysticism and folklore of Cuba. The location of the film gave birth to the film’s title Habana 3 A.M.

  • What is your background in film and direction? 

I am a plastic artist, fashion historian and film enthusiast. I grew up watching Mexican Golden Age of Cinema films. Later I developed a love for the Italian neo realism. My formal education was in the films of David Lynch, Almodovar, John Waters, Gus Van Sant among others. When I direct, produce, the film is my canvas.

  • This fashion film had the opportunity to film Cuba. What were some of the struggles and benefits to filming at this location?

In Cuba, people have a way of making things out of nothing, and that seems to work in a very surreal way. If you try to do things the way you are used to, you will fail but if you surrender to the forces of the supernatural you might have a chance. My cameras did not work and the location I had a permit for filming was closed for renovation.

Suddenly a priestess of Santeria, a mystical Afro-Cuban tradition, opened her doors to my cameras and brought with her an entire Cuban cast. This cast was willing to participate in my film. The cameras worked thanks to a very creative cameraman who knew how to read Chinese (the only language that the camera directions had). Then the filming finished in 5 days.

  • When creating this film what was the advantage of being a short film?

The advantage to creating a short film is being able to intrigue a lot of people with a little dose of fashion, music, luxury, and folklore. I did not have to explain more, and that is always a good thing, “Leave before you are left.”

  •  This film collection includes an animation called Max Vogue what is the back-story to creating the animation?

Yes, if you want to know what happened to Max Vogue after his Cuba trip, you will find out in the animated comic. Max is pushed down the stairs after winning an award, and then he goes into an “Alice in Wonderland” type of experience. He is able to travel through time and meet his icons such as Dali, Kahlo, Hemingway, Schiaparelli etc.

Max in the comic educates and amuses about fashion history, pop culture and art. Did you know: Yves Saint Laurent was in a mental institution for a while, Thierry Mugler was an architect and photographer, Coco Chanel spent her childhood in an adoption center and never was adopted, and Alexander McQueen had planned to commit suicide in front of a live audience? All these mysteries Max will reveal during the upcoming episodes.

·       What other locations this film will be screening?

The film will show in South Africa, this is the 5th edition in 2018. I am a regular guest of the festival. This is the location I met the designer Hendrik Vermuelen she designed the gowns for Habana 3 A.M. The festival of Havana in Cuba, a digital library. They will put the film in their digital library honoring the first fashion short filmed in Cuba.

Habana 3 A.M. received the International Fashion Film Award Best Jewelry to PK Bijoux. Her couture jewelry is the last piece you want to take off. The fashion film drama brings fun, history, and culture to screenplay.

To Bring Pleasure ~ Jerry Lewis

To Bring Pleasure ~ Jerry Lewis

Gregory Monro, writer and director, presents an insight to Jerry Lewis, filmmaker and actor, with the film Jerry Lewis The Man Behind The Clown at Prescott Film Festival (PFF). The title fits the complex talent and childlike nature of Lewis. The film brings an insight to the comedian, filmmaker, and his ability to bring pleasure to his audience. 

Prescott Film Festival 4Chion Lifestyle
Prescott Film Festival

Capturing the early days of the 1950 and 1960s with personal clips brings laughter to the audience at PFF. His work with Dean Martin, a partnership develops after bar incident, capture the gentleman and childhood fun. When this partnership comes to an end, Lewis took on a new direction.

He steps into behind the scenes role of filmmaking. Lewis takes time to learn all areas of filmmaking: directing, acting, camera, and production. His films included The Bellboy,  The Ladies Manand much more.

Lewis took direction and acting to a serious  level by creating “Jerry’s Noisy Toy.” This invention changed filmmaking forever. His ability to frame a film, create films years ahead of their time, and direction of this film is groundbreaking. He states, “If you think talking to me is easy, you’re crazy,” about directing himself.

The personal interviews with Sean Hayes, an actor who played Lewis a TV biopic, Pierre Etaix, a French clown, and Martin Scorsese are personal. The interview brings complexity to the clown face. Lewis was not only an American comedian but internationally honored as an extraordinary filmmaker. Monro’s film shows Lewis as many Americans see him, the childhood comedian, and the international view, an exceptional filmmaker. 

Often misunderstood and criticized for his work, but he brings brilliance to entertainment with laughter, art, and innovation to film. Lewis says, “If you give love to your audience they will give it back.”He was always a child. Lewis states, “I have always been 5.” You could see this in his comedy personality.

Lewis, a humanitarian, actor, comedian, influence in film, a child, and man is in this film. He never lost his childhood spirit. This brought pleasure to his audiences enjoying his films.

All About the Details ~ Badgley and Mischka

All About the Details ~ Badgley and Mischka

badgley mischka phx art museum

The day with Badgley and Mischka at the Phoenix Art Museum was filled with passion, fashion, and women from around the world. The entire day was all about the details. This year marks their silver anniversary in fashion, this month they celebrate their 3rd wedding anniversary. “The era that women have to suffer for beauty are bye gone,” they stated. This is the day for super glamorous with comfort and modern sensibility. Badgley and Mischka remained true to their brand and glamour through the decades remembering that women want to look beautiful and young.

They started together at Parsons School of Design in their senior year. Each began designing with different fashion houses, James Mischka menswear for WilliWear WilliSmith, and Mark Badgley with Donna Karan. The long hours and commitment to each designer they thought it would be great to create their own business.

The business taught them that there is more than 24 hours in a day, pick what you believe in and dominate the arena, and trusting each other.  They decided that they love evening attire even for daytime. This decision has been a benefited their business at times, but not following fashion trends at times has not been the best for their fashion label.

Inspiring designers for the label are: Bill Blass, Oscar De La Renta, and Geoffrey Beene. Oscar De La Renta often rode the same elevator. The three would debate who was the best fashion designer back and forth until the doors opened.

The designers watched old Hollywood films creating their label. They loved the looks of Bette Davies, Rita Hayworth, and Joan Crawford. They continue the old Hollywood film inspiration, even in recent runways.

Runway designing was compared to a wedding 6 months of really hard work and in five minutes it is over. It is exhilarating to see the full design and styling. Mark Badgley said, “it is like seeing your daughter on her wedding day.” They love this part of the fashion world, but it is just a small part of business.

The recent discussion of competing with fast fashion for fashion houses was discussed. They understand the need for designers like Tom Ford, Burberry , and Rebecca Minkoff to have the see now buy now concept for their brands. It is a great way for them to show something different this season. Their brand and designs does not compete with fast fashion, so that concept is not necessary for their label.

Their designs are know for their beading and embellishments; it is all in the details. The inspiration for their beading comes from jewelry. Many dresses may have up to 30,000 beads, beaded by old men in India, beading is a dying art. They consider themselves magpies when it comes to their beading collections. Creating the brands signature heirloom beads means: running the beads through the dishwashers hundreds of times or a bath in Drano to achieve this look.

badgley mischka 4chion lifestyle

Ensuring that the team completes the design comes from mood sketches. These sketches are the key to communicating the details of the gown. They have a signature look to their sketches. Badgley stated that, “Mischka’s sketches are not as finely sketched.”

They can speak about each gown with passion. Badgley and Mischka discussed the time they hand dyed a gown for the red carpet and it shrunk. They tied soup cans to the bottom of the dress and flew it across the country. This worked the gown was the right length for the event.

Their gowns have graced celebrities at some of the greatest red carpets. They know each of their clients well and what is working best for their personal image. They are aware of those celebrities that will require the gown custom made or others like Jennifer Lopez that knows she can rock any dress whether designed for her, previously worn, or straight off the runway. They love a woman that can look alluring and feminine in the evening no matter what her look is for the day.

The wedding collection developed from brides wanting their evening wear created to fit their special day. Many would ask to make that evening gown in the tones and beading for their wedding. Badgley and Mischka began designing specifically to meet bridal designs.

The Arizona Costume Institute received a donation from Kate Winslet’s. The 2005 Oscars red carpet dress is a Badgley Mischka design. The gowns on display at the event demonstrated that it is all in the details at Badgley Mischka.

Grief and Loss ~ “The Visit” a Film By Romina Schwedler

Grief and Loss ~ “The Visit” a Film By Romina Schwedler

Romina Schwedler, screenwriter and director, presents her first filmThe Visit, at Prescott Film Festival. This short film is a juxtaposition on life events.

The Visit is a day in the time of a visit with a mother (June Squibb) and son (Sean Maher). The story takes a specific monent in time during the son’s life and develops a sequence of events that changes lives. The son must face the consequences of the events.

Schwedler’s attention to details in the film completes the story. She states, “every little detail, in the lighting, the wardrobe design, and every odd thing matters.” The juxtaposition of this story develops well with the attention to details.

Schwedler develops the story from a conversation she had with her father concerning her aunt. Her aunt experiences loss of most family and friends. Coping with the deep grief and loss her aunt develops elaborate stories about those she lost. Her techniques in film development here allow the audience to experience the emotions in the story.

The casting for the short film was “serendipitous,” she says. She approaches June Squibb, Oscar nominated actress, at an award dinner in Los Angeles with a flash drive of the script. Sean Maher, Ben in the short film, heard about the project and appreciates June Squibb’s work. His agent contacted Schwedle in regards to working on the project.  The casting provides a twist much like the film. Check local film festival events for screening.

Alicia Machado and Daughter Metropolitan Fashion Week

Alicia Machado graces the red carpet with her beauty in a gold form-fitting gown at the Metropolitan Fashion Week at Warner Brother Studios Saturday evening. She brings a bright smile and personality to the event. She becomes the spotlight of the media and is surrounded.

She recently became the forefront of the presidential campaign. When Hillary Clinton’s campaign released the details of being Miss Universe 1996. She took a lot slack at that time from Donald Trump. The difficult days were not easy as she faced much criticism. The woman she is today brought forward her strength as one who stands tall and one has learned a lot about the beautiful woman she is inside and out.

Alicia stands with great strength and courage as she addresses the press on the blue carpet. She takes a moment to thank all those who support her throughout this time. She said, “I love you all, I love you all and thank you very much for all the people who are supporting me right now.”

Alicia presents the award for Outstanding Ensemble for Makeup Artistry and hair styling. This was presented to The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story’s make-up artist Eryn Krueger Mekash.

Alicia’s daughter, Dinorah Valentina Hernandez, walks the red carpet for designer Ricardo Soltero. This dress is a soft pink with gold trim on the bottom. Her styling is soft with pink roses adorning her head. She enjoyed her moment on the runway.

Her mother, Alicia, did not let the controversy stop her daughter from walking the runway for the day. She faces the controversy with firmness and a bright smile. The lesson for her daughter and many at the event is to keep moving one foot in front of the other. Demonstrating that life continues and we move forward.

Ava Capra Metropolitan Fashion Week

Ava Capra joins us on the red carpet at Metropolitan Fashion Week Closing Gala & Awards Show.  She graces the red carpet in a gorgeous lace top double slit gown with her best friend Brandon Cole Bailey.

One year ago she was working the challenges on America’s Next Top Models (ANTM). Capra’s dream was to appear on ANTM and work the runway. There was a height requirement in seasons past. She was just a little shy of the requirement until the last season. Tyra Banks saw something in the 5’5′ Capra.

Capra works hard and focuses on the challenges on ANTM. She has a major look change and takes it in stride because this is her dream. She gains a following that loves to seeing this young model make her dreams come true. This experience is a fabulous opportunity for Capra.  It is heartbreaking for viewers when her time ended too soon on ANTM.

Capra continues to focus on her goal of modeling and makes it very successful. Capra says, “I turned to my faith, family, and good friends to pick myself up. I learned a lot about myself and modeling. I knew this was my dream and I love the work.”

Capra has done just that. She graces the runways, cover of magazines, red carpets and more. She commands the runway as if she is taller than life. Her runway shows have include Art Hearts Fashion Week, Metropolitan Fashion Week, LA Swim Week, and more. She is often referred to as the flower Child Virgin and her flower brand, “Bloom by Ava.”

Her mother, Ann Marie Capra, states, “Ava has worked hard to stay focused, true to herself, and is making her dream come true.” Her mother states it best. Capra during the last year after leaving ANTM accomplishes a lot. Tyra Banks saw something in Capra, but Capra continues to shows that something special. She brings a strong determination to fashion, runway, commercial, and beauty making her dreams come true.

Loretta Swit joins us on the red carpet at Metropolitan Fashion Week. She walks the red carpet with grace, beauty, and joy. She is wearing an elegant red gown that she designed.

Swit is best known for her Emmy® winning role Major Margaret “Hot Lips” Houlihan on M*A*S*H. This role takes place during the Korean War. She is a strong woman in a medical army camp. She is the mistress of Major Frank Burns. Many actors on the show had a love interest in her character.

Houlihan provided a woman’s insight to working in a male-dominated arena, but great girl power. Swit speaks about her role as, “this character did this in the 50s as a woman. This television show’s time period was when most women were starting to define their role. Not only this, but the series took place in the 70s when women’s roles were still being redefined.
