The Johns

Hey, look what I found on Facebook! My dearest John Pizzolato (3'rd from the left) is wearing Ravishing Mad from head to toe! You look gorgeous, baby! This is the disco punk band The Johns and the pic is shot by Jeff Yiu right after their recent show at Lower East Side of NY.

Ravmad street style

Check out this picture that I found on Facehunter! She is wearing our High rise jean with the RM Shellie shirt and I think the whole outfit looks gorgeous together with the shoes from Juan Antonio Lopez.

Party in mind

This weekend was amazing. My dear friend Hanna Hedman brought her friends and stayed with us over the weekend. Saturday night we went to Rust Din Røv at Rusk in Copenhagen, where my friend Johannes with JoJo DJ team played with Carsten Holm. It was pretty, dance, dance and something in between rock, electro blip blop, Rage Against the Machine, and some oldies. On Sunday, after just a few hours of sleep, we dragged ourselves to Malmö Konsthall to have jazz brunch and to take a look at the Sonic Youth exhibition. We got to record a single with reversed Caraoke, where I played the drums. Too bad none of us could play...hmmm, it sounded pretty experimental...I have to get a hold of that cd, so I can play it for you. In the meantime I'll just show you a pic from the tired, but yet joyful ;-) brunch.We're thinking of doing something in Berlin soon...A party with great music, great people and fashion...I'll definetly keep you updated! I love mixing fashion with other art forms and this will definitely be something independent and outside of fashion week.

I'm meeting the photographer Magnus Österhult tomorrow to talk about it. We're going to do a photo shoot next week with mixed RM stuff in this old printing factory just to get some nice pics together. He's going to Berlin too, and right now we're talking to a whole lot of people to get it all together. I have a special band, that I just love, in mind. And I hope they like us too ;-)

see you soon!

Something to brag about

Hi there,
Today I feel like doing some bragging...might be because I have dirty hair, the trucker suit on and those old slippers that always seem to manically attract all the little threads from the floor.

Sooo...what is there to brag about? Listen to this one: I was recognized as "Reinventor of denim" by fashion editor Alberto Caselli at the Italian fashion magazine Collezioni Sport and Street during Berlin Fashion Week in January 2009. (I have to bring these old stuff into the bragging or else there won't be much...please be a little forgiving.) But anyway, it resulted in this four page mono brand feature (in issue no 52) of Ravishing Mad that I got to style as I wished:

I covered this wall with some of my sketches at a gallery in Berlin in April and I liked it:
I trimmed the left side of my head the other day and it looks good. Well, maybe not perfect, but I did it before the weekend, so it's not completely fresh:
It is perhaps questionalble if the background of the last pic belongs to the bragging section, but with this one I simply had to choose which part of the photo to be happy about.

Visitors on the homepage!

Listen to this: I just found out that we had a function on our homepage that counts the amount of visitors we get each day! Me and computers are a hopeless match, so this is completely new to me!!! I can't see who you are though, but I do know that around 1000 people visit us each month, isn't that amazing?!!! And I thought no one cared about Ravishing Mad...You are going to get soooo many updates from now on, and I just love you all!!!
