> Nipper was a wee kitten when i caught him hiding in the bushes of our first farmlet.
> I was 9. He was maybe a 9 weeks old. He was small but fast. Already knowlegable about his ability to hide amongst the long grass and shrubs.
> I named him nipper after i caught him because of the bite that he gave me on my finger when i caught him. It hurt and bled with intensity but i didnt let nipper go. Instead i took him to the barn and gave him food and milk. He wasnt sure at first. And i wasnt sure he would still be at the barn the next days but i brought milk and food in anycase and gradually he became friendly.
> However over the year not only did we have one cat but another cat came and nipper became a daddy cat a little while later.
> These barn cats were still wild. They still maintained their farm freedom and life. Nipper even became friends with our big black colt in the barn paddock.
> One day Nipper never came to get his milk . We looked and called over and over again. For days. Nothing.
> Then my father came home and said he had found the body of nipper. Nipper had got stuck down a rabbit hole. Half in and half out lay his body with a large hole that the colt had made around him trying to dig him free.
> That was a sad day. But an incredulous day. Of a small cat and a large black colt , friends till the end.

Just adore Alexander Wang and his twist on simple.

One of my FAVORITE designers of all time. Truely a master and always just lovely to me. A man of few words but legendary technique. Each gown and each piece a touch of his artful perfection.
I loved wearing his creations. They always fit me just divinely . Making each curve seem so much better than the next.
But i remember him mainly because of his subtle manner and kindness to me. Dinners in Paris at his apartment , gatherings at other gorgeous places in Paris. And ofcourse the fantastic shows we would do especially during couture seasons. I graced his campaigns and proudly so.
And he always made me feel beautiful. Every gown was tenderly put together. Masterfully.
The famous Red gowns always struck me the most. Valentino i will always associate with the most amazing reds.
Ofcourse it wasnt just about his sense of colors and endless creative gestures. It was the way he embodied the beauty of each woman in the gowns she wore. And that was so important. Because each gown was intented for everywoman. Each gown had a specific woman in mind for it. And every model too.
