Dior & I

#tbt to the time I covered Dior and I for Creem Magazine, in this personal opinion/review, “C’est Diormatique”

What’s most thrilling about this documentary is how the process is revealed, and the work is mainly created by hand!

The film is showing in theaters across the US starting today- here’s my initial thoughts on the Raf Simons Doc.

Good Times at Z!NK

The September Fashion Issue of Z!nk Magazine is my return to print media, since the days when I published a zine.  For those of you who missed this phenom, it’s kindof a xeroxed equivalent to what people now refer to as blogging.  Except the subject matter was more indie-authentic, and in my opinion less narcissistic than today’s teen self-publishers.

In the news section I wrote about the IFB Conference.  When I attended the conference, it was squeaky-clean.  The panel discussions were the main attraction, but they seemed largely didactic.  I received free pressed powder from Bare Minerals, which I wear sometimes as blush.  It must’ve been dark in there because the makeup artist selected a color that’s  2 shades darker than my actual skin tone.  Also, I was interested in The Bloggers Tool Kit, but I wasn’t allowed to see one.

I was so proud to have my name on the masthead: a first!

Here’s the article I wrote about Gucci Sustainable Soles, eco-friendly shoes.  I want a pair, please!

I want to thank the Zink staff for having me on board.  It was such fun researching, writing, and going through lookbooks.  I hope I will continue to write & direct photo shoots for them as well.  Visit them online at Cheers, Alisha

Petite Muller: NYC Time


“Before my first tour to the CMJ Festival, i was walking through a small town with empty street, thinking about landing in new york, a place in which you can’t run away from making your own magic.  ”

Petite’s new video is co-diercted by A. T. Mann & NAPOLEON HABEICA, styled by Gabrielle Swan.

Petite wears the Rosebud Bodysuit & Peplam Vest, from the Alisha Trimble SS2012 collection.

The premiere issue of Poppy Magazine has arrived, conjuring up images of Glenda the Good Witch of the North twinkling in technicolor sparkle-dreams, waving a protective spell over a sound stage of billowing magic flowers.

One of my earliest memories is of Poppies: there were always flowerbeds & gardens my grandmother tended to & I never once misbehaved in the garden, until one day…   I knew as a child not to do this, but uncontrollably  I ran & ate handfuls of the red blossoms outside my dad’s apartment.   Dropping instantly into a smash sleep on the grass,  I passed  into dreams long forgotten.  I don’t remember ever waking up.
