Exclusive Interview
Following the announcement of the @britishfashioncouncil Fashion Trust '17 Grant Recipients last night - of which @EdelineLee, @HardingeGeorgia, @Isa_Arfen, @SharonWauchob and @TeatumJones were first-time recipients - we sat down with co-chairs Tania Fares and Sian Westerman to learn more about the organization, which Carmen is a benefactor of. See what they have to say about London being a unique fashion capital, and why some brands get accepted while others get rejected. (Link in bio.)

On Future Vintage
@ByronesqueVintage CEO and co-founder Gill Linton reveals the key pieces from current collections that will stand the test of time. "Fall 2013 was a big fashion moment for #Bambi and the rise of the luxury sweatshirt. This was one of the most popular fashion-editor staples of the decade. This Fall 2017 collection is remarkable for how cleverly the design team creatively problem-solved their way out of a season without Tisci." (Link in bio.)

At the tail end of her Bhutan trip, Carmen will be holding a prayer ceremony to from 10am - 12pm tomorrow joined by the Queen Mother of Bhutan, monks, nuns and spiritual leaders of the nation. The purpose will be to cultivate a strong healing energy for the situation in Venezuela, which now looks like a war zone and during the last 6 weeks of fighting, has accumulated in 47 deaths. Prayer may seem like cold comfort to some, but it is known that if there is a change in the individual consciousness, then a change in the collective consciousness will also take place. This is why Buddhists say that everything arises from the mind. Our mind is a creation of the collective consciousness. If we want to have change, we have to return to our mind. Our mind is a center that produces energy. From this, we can change the world.
Please join us tonight/tomorrow May 22/23, wherever you are, for however short a period. Here are the relative times:
LA - 9pm - 11pm
Miami - 12am - 2am
NYC - 12am - 2am
Caracas - 12am - 2am
London - 5am - 7am
Paris - 6am - 8am

Does fashion have a problem with Body Dysmorphic Disorder?
As an industry of perfectionists, after all - we're in the businesses of spotting inconsistencies, editing, and making people dream - we both fuel it and are uniquely pre-dispositioned. Read Carmen's take - link in bio.

Mr Trudeau met with one of Venezuela's most important human rights activists @liliantintori (whose husband is political prisoner @leopoldolopezoficial) to discuss the deteriorating situation in #Venezuela. The Prime Minister repeated Canada's call on the government to free all political prisoners and restore order.
