22nd of April was Earth's day and had low mediatic coverage. Mother's Day was initially a call in 1908 by Anna Jarvis to settle a holiday in the calendar in order to celebrate mothers. She was a peace activist during the American Civil War and involved in Methodist Church back at the time. The commercial turn of this celebration upset her then she started to claim the authority of this day to keep it symbolic.


She actually settled it this way: "Its (white carnation) whiteness is to symbolize the truth, purity and broad-charity of mother love; its fragrance, her memory, and her prayers. The carnation does not drop its petals but hugs them to its heart as it dies, and so, too, mothers hug their children to their hearts, their mother love never dying. When I selected this flower, I was remembering my mother’s bed of white pinks."


To me, the interesting point is how each flower type, like we can find when studying species, has its own way to move during its life.

The observation of nature helps us, from the identification, to meditate and sometimes find solutions. From observation to the solution, there is our own judgment that also comes together with our experience of life, our environment, everything that has impacted us like our education, our beliefs.


Are we still learning from Nature?

From Mother Earth?

Many laboratories would answer yes. What they will do from this observation is a debate. It depends on how, why, how far.

About this last point, how far, how far can we go with some observation, I would like to actually say something. It is about the limits. Limits of a body, of time, of resources, of a territory. All these experiences are understandable because of the experimentation of them. since when then did we stop to pay attention to these inner knowledges? Since maybe we couldn't realise our own movement? From the most simple one: breathing.

I leave you to meditate on it but before you go, I would like to share with you the words of a person I actually met today as it is Mother's Day in India, @flashback_gordon.

Please make sure you read captions of both posts. Feel free to comment your feelings on them.




With COVID-19, some fashion designers are still unsure about their brand's future. During the Fashion Revolution Week, it has also been discussed on whether it is sustainable to create a collection for each season. It is now a new perspective for designers to embrace their own way towards slow fashion and collaboration. The main challenges for what we call the post-pandemic, after-COVID or post-COVID is are the circular economy, production schedule, relationships with suppliers and workers, collaboration (as Mara Hoffman explained well during her panel at FASHINNOVATION NYC day 1).


If you are wondering about what to grab from your wardrobe, if you need inspiration or to discover sustainable brands that are making a change in the international Fashion Week scenes in Copenhagen, New York, London, Paris, Milan, here is an article I wrote for the magazine
