In about a week, I will be traveling overseas for a little while. I hope it’s going to be exciting and I will come back with a lot of stories to share with you fafafoomers.

Having been to Mélange 2012 and Mélange 2011, the producers of this event take its mission of blending fashion, dance, music, and theatre very seriously. Yes, it can be too ambitious at times, however it surely adds the level of excitement to this international celebration of diversity in San Francisco. This year, the Mélange team partners with the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), and for each ticket purchased for Mélange 2013, one meal for Nourish the Children (NTC) by Nu Skin (official skincare partner) will be donated. Official partners for Mélange 2013 include 7×7 Magazine and the historic AsiaSF.
Three Jean Paul Gaultier looks will be featured on the catwalk of Mélange 2013. Guila Kessous (Jean Paul Gaultier’s Creative Director and Board Member for Mélange) will be flying from Paris to attend Mélange 2013. Local Bay Area designers such as Topher Adam, international designers such as Varignia Garcia (Peru), and celebrity designers such as Punk Kouture (who designed for Nicki Minaj and Mick Jagger) will also be featured on the runway.
As if that’s not enough fabulousness, Mélange 2013 will also showcase the world premiere of the new handbag by French luxury brand Le Tanneur. Designed by Guila Kessous, this hand bag was presented to Michelle Obama as a gift from the first lady of France during her visit to the country. Luxury haute couture brand Eric Tibusch, famous French designer of Alain Delon, will also be showcasing two looks on the runway – each look valued over $20,000. These couture looks will be modeled by the famous Aurelia Khazan, who is flying from France to attend this event.
