According to Chinese Horoscope the year of the HORSE has just begun – on this occasion getting back to those moments when you truly feel in peace, content, loved and relaxed, full of inner “silence” but also full of creative energy just about to erupt, when you are complete and in order, back to happy childhood days, surrounded by nature and people you love, summer and the garden parties, sun, birds and nothing else – when you deep inside feel happy in the moment – wishing you to keep it alive every second of your life to make it even more real and last forever. Love Yourself even more in this Happy New Year 2014 – let it go and let it flow. Love. P.

I would never expected how wonderful time I had had during my a very first visit to Taipei, and most of all to Taiwan!!! Just before I went there I had realized how little or rather almost at all I had known about the place. So basically everything – literally everything – was a big discovery for me, surprise and the new every single minute – and I truly loved so much – from all the places, foods, smells and most of all the amazing so-many-people I was so lucky to meet in such a short time. Overwhelmed. Amazed. In Love. Even I saw so little really.
The main reason I visited Taipei was the invitation to take part in celebration of 10th Anniversary of 101Taipei – the very taaaaaalllllll and quite distinctive landmark of the city. I was honored to be a part of Art Fashion Exhibition – as a one of artists invited for the event – for which I had created special piece inspired by 101Taipei, of course, which is donated for charity auction to support children`s medical check in small villages of Taiwan. The online auction was finished on 6th Oct as well as all the art pieces were on display at the specially created for this event exhibition space made of recycling materials /very eco/ at the 101Shopping Mall 4th Floor – also till 6th Oct only.
All participating artists actually were connected to London fashion and art scene, one way or another, so for some of us it was unexpected reunion;
to name few: Hiro and KING from Tokyo or Tatty Divine, Kelly Kiwi, Natacha Marro or Mehui Liu from London. For myself I can say that I’ve known Hiro and Meihui for at least 10 years now.
Happy BIG ANNIVERSARY to 101TAIPEI and also big thank you to Jil Wu, Meihui Lui and Weni Chang – for made it all happened.
And what about Taipei and Taiwan – definitely I will be back and I hope very soon and for a bit longer.
