Reyna today. The water got into her camper and it's all wet. Ladies Rotarianas brought supplies, blankets and dry clothes. Come and help!! Bring your shovel.. Today for her, tomorrow for us!! Buenavista Bcs. Posted by Steve Reed on Sep 04, Authorities expect the death toll to rise as crews search debris and mudflows. Baja California Sur Gov. Carlos Mendoza reported that Lidia dumped about 27 inches millimeters of rain. Water is contaminated, stores are flooded or buried, the main highway is disrupted, and the sheer number of those in need is overwhelming local emergency services.
Neighbors are helping neighbors, and everyone is pitching in, but the task is enormous. Their need is not specific or patient; they need everything and they need it now. Food, water, temporary shelters, blankets, medicine, diapers, clothes, and construction materials of all kinds. If you are not local, you may contribute using Paypal to Clubrotariolosbarriles gmail. If we each give a little, we can help a lot. Si no es local, puede contribuir con Paypal a Clubrotariolosbarriles gmail.
Si cada uno da un poco, podemos ayudar mucho. Thanks to all of you who contributed to our recent successful season here in East Cape. Visiting Rotarians from California helped complete several projects, and participated in the creation of our first Interact Rotary club for youths. The new season includes our ongoing projects, like maintenance of our Technology Centers, where local students need internet access for their studies and futures.
We also provide and support programs for school-age children who are often left alone every day until evening. Clean Water projects continue with no end in sight. Most of our communities are supplied by unclean water sources, and the distribution of healthful water filters remains a high priority. New projects include Senior Care, for those who become isolated as families move away, programs to improve literacy and basic education, projects to improve baseball and soccer fields for our youth, the reconstruction of the stage at our Laguna Park for community activities, enhancement of our volunteer program for remote teaching services, enhancement of the "Women's Care" programs offered by East Cape Health Center, ongoing support of no cost health care for children under 18, and support of our new Club Rotario Interact.
When we each give a little, we can get a lot done. The hardships of our East Cape communities are many, but the rewards are just as great when neighbors come together for a common cause. Our challenges continue to include poverty, a minimal education system, isolation, health issues, and inadequate water systems. Because, remember, we are not just a social club. We are Rotarians, and Rotarians make changes in the world.

Posted by Steve Reed on May 16, The fountain has undergone a major overhaul, and your donations made it possible. All other donations will be recognized in a thank you published in the BPE, and on our Rotary website. Thanks for helping our community put its best face forward. Gracias por ayudar a nuestra comunidad a poner su mejor cara hacia adelante. May 6th, a handful of Rotarians and members of our community spent their Saturday cleaning up and improving our baseball field.
Bleachers were moved, netting installed, shade areas improved, and the whole field generally given a clean face lift. The results are safer and better viewing and team areas. Thanks goes to those who showed up to convert a simple sandlot into a field where our kids can play safely. Posted by Michael Koehn on May 11, During the months of June and July , Club Rotario helped assist Club Deportivo in remodeling the restrooms, building a storage area, and securing our Los Barriles cancha. In August, with financial support from two Rotary Clubs from Oakhurst, California and the nonprofit group Be the Power of One, we were able to build a new kitchen for the children at the Los Barriles Elementary School.
It was a great way to start the season off. More than local residents came to Parque Laguna to enjoy the fine tastings offered from over 13 local restaurants. January brought the annual Lord of the Wind event. Despite a lack of wind, LOW proved to once again be a success for our community. Another installment of Carnaval was held in early February. Special recognition goes to the many children in the community who participated in the parade as well as the many residents who enjoyed the viewing the parade again this year. Club Rotario donated 9 computers to La Ribera, and their new Tech Center celebrated an open house later that month.
Quite a bit of painting, plumbing repair, shutter hanging, and general clean up took place during this event. With a large group of local kids participating, we spent the week working on projects at Parque Laguna, the Los Barriles Elementary Cafeteria dining area, the library and bathrooms at Buena Vista School, the kindergarten in San Antonio, and the East Cape Health Center.
Kids from two countries worked and played side by side, and bonds were borne between our two cultures. We ended the season with a Taco Dinner fundraiser on May 5th for our own new Interact kids, as well as sponsoring a work party to clean up and improve the baseball field. On May 10th, we celebrated Mother's Day by conducting a "pinning ceremony" for our Interact club.
This has been truly a full year of activity, accomplishments, fun, and promise. We could not have been so successful without the participation of so many. We are excited that Josefina Ruiz will be our president for the coming year, and are already pleased by her deep reach into the local community. Posted by Steve Reed on May 11, A large gathering of family and supporters celebrated the achievement and the kids who are making it happen. Creating a Rotary Interact Club in Los Barriles is a project fathered and furthered by our immediate past president, Mike Koehn, who was unable to attend the ceremony.
Thank you, Mike Koehn, Josefina Ruiz, Chris Geyer, and all the rest of the community who worked so hard to make this possible. Una docena de nuevos miembros del Club Rotativo de Los Barriles recibieron sus pines rotarios oficiales de la Presidente entrante Josefina Ruiz, el ex presidente Chris Geyer y la miembro Mary Joanis en una noche social de Rotary el 10 de mayo en Campestre Triny Restaurante.

Tours and brunch are also available upon request. Please email for reservations: kitziakokopelmana gmail. A relationship established last year and repeated this season has borne fruit in our little town of Los Barriles. A Rotary Interact Club is a club for teenagers. Twenty members of the Madera Rotary Interact Club from California sacrificed their Spring Breaks two seasons in a row to help our Rotary work on projects.
All the projects benefited our kids, such as painting albergues in San Antonio, cleaning up our Laguna Park, and helping complete the new elementary school cafeteria. The first season our kids met their visitors and mixed a bit. This season our kids showed up in numbers, to work side by side with their new friend, and party afterward too.
The seed was planted well. More than thirty youths have already indicated interest in joining, and they held the first event in support of our own Los Barriles Interact Club on Cinco de Mayo. A hundred people turned out for the celebration as the new members of the Club served a delicious taco meal, and then entertained us all with a spectacular dance performance in traditional Mexican dress.
And well done to all their parents, as well as to everyone else who came out to support our youth. Un Rotary Interact Club es un club para adolescentes. Veinte miembros del Madera Rotary Interact Club de California sacrificaron sus Spring Breaks dos temporadas seguidas para ayudar a nuestro Rotary a trabajar en proyectos.

Scurrchris hotmail. Posted by Steve Reed on Apr 25, Earth Day was celebrated in Buena Vista by a small group of people dedicated to protecting our planet. Eight citizens gathered behind the Buena Vista Elementary School equipped with gloves and shovels, and showed no fear of getting dirty. Together they planted twelve trees as a gesture of renewal for Buena Vista, for Mexico, for the world. Her message was simple, but powerful.
She told us we need to save Mother earth, and that day our way was to plant a tree. Plant a tree. Su mensaje era simple, pero poderoso. April 26, Posted by Steve Reed on Apr 24, Madera Interact Club Impact. Nineteen teenagers, accompanied by a dozen or more chaperones from both Madera and Oakhurst Chapters, spent their Spring Break helping others south of the border. While the days were filled with hard work for good causes, the evenings were filled with great food and laughter as local teenagers turned out to welcome the visitors and a new Interact Club is being born in Los Barriles.
We can all take a lesson from the kids who mixed and mingled freely. Borders are just lines drawn in our minds. Humanity knows no boundaries. La humanidad no conoce fronteras. Posted by Steve Reed on Apr 20, Earth Day celebrates our awareness of the need to take care of our planet, so that it will be here to take care of us, and all of us yet to come. Everyone is invited.

Posted by Steve Reed on Mar 27, Rotarians from both the Fair Oaks and Nevada City Clubs descended on Los Barriles the end of March to help finish what they started a year ago in San Antonio, renovating both the boys' and girls' albergues.
Parents and staff of the albergues came to help too, and new friendships bloomed sharing scrapers and paint brushes. An unexpected surprise was the blankets the Rotarians brought for the children, each hand crafted with colorful crocheted borders. Muchas gracias to our visitors, for their hearts, their hands, and their help. Regardless of borders or languages, we are indeed all one family. Muchas gracias a nuestros visitantes, por sus corazones, sus manos, y su ayuda.
Independientemente de las fronteras o lenguas, en realidad somos una sola familia. Posted by Steve Reed on Mar 23, March 24 th and 25 th. Rotario de Los Barriles is calling for volunteers!

Our new President Josefina Ruiz inducted her cabinet, and presented our club with an aggressive agenda for her season at the helm. In the last few months Ruiz has reached out to all the surrounding Rotary Clubs and forged new bonds everywhere she went. This will be a season of union for our Rotary and our town, a season of communication and cooperation between neighboring Clubs to ensure no one is left behind. When we each give a little, we can accomplish a lot.

Posted by Steve Reed on Mar 14, Carnaval flowed through Los Barriles March 4 th on waves of fun and laughter.
Prizes were awarded for best costumes by age, by our Mayor and Josefina Ruiz. As we should have expected, the true magic of Carnaval was not found in the floats or costumes or even the pig roast, but in the happy faces of the children. From infants to teenagers, the kids had fun and brought back the child in each of us. They proved once again to be the real gift of Carnaval. We are all family. En esta cultura amorosa de Mexico, es cierto y este carnaval no fue la excepcion. Carnaval fluyo a traves de los barriles el pasado 4 de Marzo en olas de diversion y risas. Resultaron una vez mas ser el verdadero regalo del carnaval.
What began as a small project by Club Rotario de Los Barriles to benefit a little albergue, blossomed into a full-blown Technology Center available to children of the entire community. Many thanks to the Rotarians of the Truckee Breakfast Club and the Baja de La Paz Club for the computers, without which the secure space for the Center may not have been created. Please come celebrate helping hands, and give thanks for good connections, both digital and human. Just drive straight into La Ribera.

Posted by Steve Reed on Feb 26, You may have noticed our fountain has fallen silent.
Years of constant use wore the pumps out, corroded electrical systems, cracked the wall and pool, and generally used up whatever was keeping our fountain flowing and beautiful all these years. Recent inspections revealed many problems, and prompted the shutdown. We need 3 new pumps, new electrical boxes, replacement of the of the exterior wall tiles, and a thorough restoration of the barrels and surrounds. Donations of any size are acceptable. A little can go a long way when we all give together. Call or email scurrchris hotmail. Turn left 3 streets past the mini super Mercado where there are two large signs on the left side of the highway.
Posted by Steve Reed on Feb 06, Carnaval is traditionally celebrated the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday, and is a last fling before Lent and forty days of fasting. Loosely translated, in Los Barriles, Carnaval means fun. While most communities celebrate Carnaval at the beginning of February, this year Los Barriles will once again break with tradition and invite our neighbors to join us for a combined Carnaval on March 4 th.
Last year our Delegada, Francis Olachea, and Josefina Ruiz, welcomed families from surrounding pueblos for the first combined Carnaval, which proved to be larger than any before in Los Barriles. This year all the communities of East Cape are invited, including all children, adults, clubs, organizations, people and pets. Create a float, decorate your truck, parade on foot, and dress up your pets. From ninos to perros, the parade features everything cute in costume.
Prizes will be awarded by our Mayor, Franicis Olechea, for best costumes by age class, even a best dressed pet prize. Children are our main focus, but no matter what your age, a parade brings the kid out in each of us. Come strut your stuff. To participate, show up at the Fountains by pm, Saturday, March 4th.
There is no registration required. The parade will start at 4 pm, and proceed through Los Barriles to finish at Laguna Park. At pm enjoy a fiesta dinner of roast pork, watch the best of the dressed costume prizes, and listen to a special amateur singing competition, with music by DJ Noe. Buy your tickets in advance from any Rotarian, or stop in at Seven Seas Property Management across the street from Bancomer. Carnaval reminds us that we are all family and friends.
Come have some fun. Posted by Steve Reed on Feb 05, The children in our town have not been able to secure their sports equipment onsite at our Cancha because it has no locking facility. Following the completion of the new banos, community attention was turned to the next need, the deteriorating attached shed. A plan was developed, but the familiar problem of funding delayed the project. Water for Buena Vista Elementary.
Water is as necessary for survival as air. Most elementary schools in Mexico are unable to provide purified water facilities for their students, so filtered water is available for each class, and distributed by the students themselves. The Committee de Buena Vista came to Josefina Ruiz to ask for donations for the school, and Josefina asked them what their most important need was. They told her the size of the water containers needed for each classroom was a great problem. At four gallons each, they were too heavy for the children to manage. Working together, the Subdelegation, Josefina Ruiz on behalf of Club Rotario de Los Barriles , and a parent, Adam Greenberg, have provided three new, more portable water containers for the children.
Many hands make the work lighter. Agua es necesaria para la supervivencia como el aire. Muchas manos hacen el trabajo ligero. Rotary Club of Los Barriles puts on a free pancake breakfast on the beach every year on the last day of the Lord of the Winds event. Four hours of batter splattering and twists of the wrists later, hundreds of people had enjoyed a free meal at the beach, and all the Flippers had long before lost count of the number of hotcakes they'd served.
Thank you, Ivan Kaiser, for keeping this tradition alive. Photos by John Daugirda. Fotos por John Daugirda. Posted by Ian Gibson on Jan 28, The 7th annual Lord of the Wind has wrapped up, and what a jam packed five days and six nights it has been! The competitors were amazing! And although we had less this year than last year, the skills demonstrated on the water were incredible! This year was the first time that we had Boardercross.
This is the slalom race with obstacles that look like giant hot-dogs. It is also the event that will be featured if Lord of the Wind hosts the Pan American Youth Olympic Prequalifying event next year. The competitors looked like they had a great time running the course. It was most definitely fun to watch! The hydrofoil course racing was, as always, great to see.
And the freestyle and big air events were off the charts! This all being said, the wind was not playing nicely throughout the 5 days. We had good wind on Wednesday, but then Thursday, Friday, and Saturday were difficult for the kiteboarders to even ride their foils. No problem…. What a great time to have an egg toss competition! The announcers, Chris Ernst and Grom Gromley, kept the audience entertained.
And as it always does… the wind came back. Sunday morning was a perfect day to fly a kite, which is what the young kids of Los Barriles did! At in the morning, the children, after loading their bellies with free pancakes, filled the sky with the kites that they had made the prior day. Then, from on the sky was filled with somewhat bigger kites pulling the riders up and out of the water for the amazing tricks of freestyle or the seemingly-forever-flights of big air!

Posted by Leigh-Anne Cameron on Dec 26, Many of you attended our Rotary Taste of East Cape event, where the need to repair our local free ambulance was announced by the civil protection department of Los Barriles. We know many of you attended the event simply because so very many of you responded to a plea for help repair the brakes on our ambulance.
Thank you to everyone who listened, all of you who either are or have become our neighbors. Any donations are welcome to keep the ambulances operating. The local Los Barriles ambulance is equipped with 4-wheel drive, so they can make emergency runs into the arroyos. Most of the drivers are Spanish-speaking but are trained in how to help. Come check out the new styles, colors, and a wider variety aimed to please any taste. But please use discretion in your purchasing: some items might be too exciting for seniors.
These are perfect for memorable gifts! Firefighters of Los Barriles must wear many suits. They serve as our firefighters, emergency response team, ambulance drivers, and whatever else is asked of them. Thanks to Mr. Kennedy, they are almost completely equipped. Helmets and boots are still needed, in various sizes. If you can find such equipment to donate, contact our Rotary at screed10 gmail. Los bomberos de Los Barriles deben llevar muchos trajes.
Sirven como nuestro equipo de respuesta de emergencia, bomberos, conductores de ambulancia, y cualquier otra cosa que se les pide. Gracias al Sr. Kennedy, son casi completamente equipadas. Children who have never had access to the Internet will soon expand their horizons from neighboring pueblos to the entire globe. An end to violence against women is a goal everyone shares, and the world stood up in support of that cause last November 25 th. In our little town of Los Barriles, local ladies met at the Fountain to march in support of an end to all violence against mujeres.
The original plan was for only women to march in a show of solidarity, but for a cause this universal, several hombres joined them. The result was a reminder that solidarity is only enhanced when it becomes inclusive. Chants of pride drew people out to the street as the marchers with pink balloons passed through. They gathered at the cancha, where our Mayor, Francis Olachea, thanked the crowd and encouraged us all to keep the faith and continue the fight to eradicate violence against women.
A special thanks goes to Josefina Ruiz, for her leadership, and particularly for the T-shirts and pink balloons. Para que se ponga fin a la violencia contra la mujer es un objetivo que todos compartimos, y el mundo se levantaron en apoyo de esa causa, el pasado 25 de Noviembre. Un agradecimiento especial a Josefina Ruiz, por su liderazgo, y especialmente para las camisetas y globos de color rosa. The heart of our community was in view once again when a free spay clinic was held at our Los Barriles Cancha on Saturday, November 26th.
Families who recognize the need to limit the starving strays we see in our streets brought their pets to be neutered or spayed at no cost. Their time and expertise are greatly appreciated, and a special thanks to those who came just to comfort and care for pets post-surgery.
Las familias que reconocen la necesidad de limitar los hambrientos los perros sin hogar vemos en nuestras calles trajo sus mascotas para ser castrados spayed o sin costo alguno. Posted by Steve Reed on Dec 18, Come enjoy the wonderful comraderie of our small but very active club. Posted by Chris Geyer on Dec 15, More than children are enrolled in the primary school in Los Barriles, and many rely on the meals provided by the school five days a week.
The school has used a sub-contractor to provide the meals for the children, and the tiny kitchen was little more than a taco truck. The eating area had extremely limited seating, and the sanitary station was not always functional. On the not so rare occasions of sunny days, the children had little or no cover. Thanks to generous donors and a community who cares, today our school has a new cafeteria, with a bigger and better equipped kitchen, more seating, and concrete eating areas where there was only dirt before. Your support of this project is greatly appreciated.
Be assured that your contribution to this project will have a lasting influence on the youth of our town. Yours in Rotary Service,. Su apoyo de este proyecto es muy apreciada. Posted by Steve Reed on Dec 15, We did it! We came together as a community to replace the old dysfunctional bathrooms at our Los Barriles Cancha with new, updated, fully functional restrooms. Finding the money to afford such a project was hard, but with the generosity of our friends and neighbors, construction is now complete. Our children can enjoy secure public sanitary services while at our town Cancha.
Thanks go to everyone who donated time, materials, and cash. Thank you all more than simple words can express. Those who attended the event were asked to vote for their top three samplings of each restaurant's cuisine. The success was also reflected by over people voting for their favorite tastes. Each of those five received a Certificate of Excellence for their efforts at the Taste.
Thank you to all the restaurants who participated. Lord of the Wind takes place January 17th - 22nd, Come celebrate our holiday season with a buffet by Berenice and Ruby, and an open bar compliments of Ken Phillips. Turn left and continue. Posted by Steve Reed on Dec 02, Anyone who wants to help, email Mike Koehn at mikekoehnsr gmail.
President Mike Koehn received the following email. Please share and if you have or know of any accommodations for five people. Please either email Mike at mikekoehnsr gmail. I wanted to follow up with you and thank you for your hospitality, for the breakfast, and most importantly for the opportunity to meet our fellow Rotarians when Gayle and I visited your club meeting in late October. It is truly impressive! Our flights are all arranged, and we thought lodging was taken care of as well, however that fell through at the last minute.
Bottom line is we are looking for a place to rent for 5 in or around Los Barriles for all or most of those dates. If we do make it down, it would be great to connect up again either for a club meeting if it is being held, or just a cup of coffee or a beer. I hope you had a great time. It was a huge financial success for Rotary and East Cape recycle.

Our last season provides a perfect example. Over children are enrolled in our Los Barriles elementary school, and the number who rely on school lunches for nourishment fluctuates. The school cafeteria had only a small kitchen, limited seating, and a shaded play area in disrepair.

Las Fiestas Patrias. Posted by Leigh-Anne Cameron on Sep 29, Las Fiestas Patrias night of celebration in Los Barriles was a great success. Our project to build a new kitchen for our elementary school in Los Barriles is progressing well. A joint effort with Oakhurst Rotary Clubs and Be the Power of One non-profit, construction includes a new food preparation facility, food storage, a covered area to provide shade and cover, and concrete benches and tables for lunching and lounging.
This need has taken a long time to fill and is only now being accomplished because of the vision and generosity of Be the Power of One and the Oakhurst Rotary Clubs. Muchas gracias to our friends in the States, to our local contractors, and to all of you who have contributed time, money, or materials.

Please contact me at bajadays aol. As we start our new Rotary year I want to wish each of you the best in the coming months. Elaine and I will be in Los Barriles the first part of October.

Technical debt is like cholesterol; the more it accumulates, the more it impedes the flow of value. Legacy systems are a perfect example of technical debt. Yet the longer you wait, the costlier it will get due to lack of knowledge and support. Speed-to-market pressures also increase the debt — such as first-to-market, responding to time-critical customer needs, and faster customer feedback to improve performance and value. Compromises are made with the notion of dealing with the consequences later.
All these technical decisions impact delivery speed and must be managed to ensure any future changes or products are not delayed. Technical debt additionally impacts delivery teams by bloating their work-in-progress WIP with neglected work. Less completed work leads to longer time to delivery, lower product quality, and less value, impacting customer satisfaction and business performance.
Yet software needs to go through a period of refactoring to maintain performance. A product-oriented view enables the business to understand how all work interlinks, providing the ability to predict and fix for the impact of technical debt. The Flow Framework — a new way of seeing, measuring, and managing product delivery — introduces two metrics that help increase visibility of technical debt: Flow Distribution This metric shows the distribution of the different types of work that the IT team has delivered, such as value-adding work like features and functionality, and revenue-protecting work like defects, security related work.

Accumulating technical debt on the backlog can have an increasingly negative impact a company and its products. Budgeting for Technical Debt There are two parts to budgeting for technical debt. Time and resources must be set aside every financial year to tackle technical debt as debt often accumulates due to a lack of funding and sponsorship.
If technical debt is not actively monitored, it will gradually impact the flow of value to customer-facing products. Neglect the build-up and a cardiac arrest is inevitable.

Since graduating, she has never looked back. Confident that 3D technology is the most sustainable method of revolutionizing most industries, Julia is harnessing the transformational power of 3D printing for her fashion innovations. Her primary goal is sustainability. She is also keen to reduce waste and environmental footprints across the sector.
Proudly piloting in a new era of fashion 3D printing Julia has debuted the release of, The Liberation Collection, the first ever 3D printed clothing collection for women. Though stunning in nature, many 3D printed collections released by other. Daviy 3D printed fashion collection is the first ever to be released within the. The 3D printing process allows the fine regulation of thickness, shape, pattern, and color. Julia has mastered these techniques in the production of two 3D printed suits, and bespoke dresses and skirts, combining 2 different filaments for printing.
To evolve the clothing production industry and. Besides working on making 3d printed clothes wearable and flexible, we are working on simplifying the software, so that it could be accessible to every woman, who wants to create or customize a 3d design of her e. She is also experimenting with flexible resin and SLA technology which permits her to print complex design shapes easily with almost no postprocessing. Her predecessors in the 3D printed fashion game are known for printing with small-scale printers, cutting, splitting and gluing multiple times over, thus assembling their piece of clothing from many small separate parts.
For Julia, her large printing format means a minimum of handwork and post-processing, with the highest-level quality of 3d printed fashion in the industry. She single-handedly produces all three stages of 3D printing herself. Including designing the pieces from scratch. Printing her pieces using large-scale technology, mainly using 2 technologies of 3d printing - FDM. Highlights within The Liberation Collection include: The Polka Dot Exoskeleton Dress: Inspired by exoskeletons of sea urchins, Julia created a ready-to-3dwear classic dress with 3-dimensional polka dots, which are like the round barbed in the closer look.
The Parametric Skin Suit: Julia used the 3-dimensional pattern like a snakeskin and parametric lines of different height, inspired by the shapes of Fungia Coral and sea animal species skin patterns. The Pure Nature Suit: A white top and white-and-neon-green skirt. Here you will see a wide-use in architecture organic pattern so-. The suit is super flexible.
Its lining made from premium eco-friendly fabric produced from recycled fishing nets. Inspired by the shapes of coral reef and a skirt from one of the most popular looks of Carrie Bradshaw, this skirt matches a wide variety of modern looks. The Fragility Dress: This dress was made from a peace Ahimsa silk organza fabric and was decorated by 3-dimensional. So, the skirt slightly changes the body architecture.
At that time, I was increasingly concerned with the ethical and environmental impact of fashion on our world. In 3D printing, I saw a solution to these problems. The elements of bra zone as the shoal of jellyfishes, and the shape of the dress is like a sea star body architecture. The idea of this dress is to attract attention to the problem facing the Oceans, such as overfishing, the killing of sharks. And the 3-dimensional patterns are inspired by coral reef fishes are grey and have different. The 3D printing process has the potential to be less energy intensive and wasteful than existing clothing manufacture techniques.

It is not an eco-friendly or environmentally sustainable model. Every year millions of animals are killed for their skins.

It was aweinspiring learning more about this award-winning designer who happens to live in one of the greatest cities in the United States, and oh, who happens to also live in the same city as I do.
We had an interesting and jovial conversation and I hope after you read our conversation, you too, will come away inspired. William Jackson: Tell me the most interesting facts about yourself. William: How did you develop an interest in pursuing fashion design? William: You have several successful years in the apparel business. Would you speak to me about the evolution of the brand?
I grew up in Detroit and so was influenced by a decaying city and multicultural people. The Motown experience also informed my creativity. William: How would you describe yourself as a designer and what do you think of when you design? I begin with classic couture techniques and then warp them to create the things I envision.
Anexo:Episodios de Codename: Kids Next Door - Wikipedia, la enciclopedia libre
Designing starts from an emotional reaction before the thinking part ever begins. I distill experiences from my life and hone them into a finetuned vision. William: With the new economy, do you believe the idea of luxury has changed? Benson: I think both the idea and reality of luxury have changed. It has become far less accessible to the masses and so, more than ever, is desirable.
My basic inspiration has always been to create, for each client, garments that cause them to feel gorgeous, to give them a sense of empowerment in that state of feeling beautiful. At the very same time, being influenced by my environment absolutely does inspire different color pallets and cuts.

William: What is it that makes the fashion industry so interesting to you? William: Is luxury expressed differently in other parts of the world? If so, how? Benson: This is an interesting thing to consider. Each culture draws upon its own identity to create its concept of luxury. In very hot countries one would view a tailored suit as restrictive while in Norway, for instance, a flowing silk garment would be looked at as frivolous. William: With respect to your sources of inspiration for your designs, are they the same today as they were when you started in the industry?
Benson: My basic inspiration has always been to create, for each client, garments that cause them to feel gorgeous, to give them a sense of empowerment in that state of feeling beautiful. In the 80s and 90s everything was harsh, chic, and minimalist in mainly shades of black, silver, and other dark gemstone colors. Living in New Orleans introduced me to vibrant colors, patterns, flow, and extravagance with plenty of sparkle and sheen.
Texas has inspired more constructed looks with evening suits being my new favorite shape to create with. Benson: What I can tell you about every woman and man who allow us to dress them is they live life on their own terms. They like luxury and are bold and willing to color outside the lines. They are just as comfortable at a rock show as an opera. They cocktail with movie stars and have tea with the Dalai Lama. To sum it up; my clients are dichotomies of their own creating. We have been the chosen design house of a certain elite clientele for three decades.
Benson: I honestly try not to. That may sound trite but as an artist I do my best not to paint myself into a corner with my words. These gowns are as much a statement of hope, in trying times, as they are about turning perspective forward. William: What aspects of the fashion industry, if any, would you like to change? We live in an age where they have driven a fast fashion economy which is dangerous to everyone at every level of production and which is ultimately damaging our environment.
If it was available three years ago it can still be ordered. Fashion must become timeless again not something that is cycled every six months from closet to trash. In the 90s we sent , apparel jobs overseas in the name of fast cheap fashion. We must bring some of those jobs back home. That we absolutely must embrace diversity with the fashion and apparel communities. We must embrace it not only on the runways and in the atelier but at the very top. We must have people of color running magazines, heading fashion houses, and finally we must see the financial corporations that fund the entire industry led by men and women who are not white.
William: On a personal note, what are some of your favorite places to visit around the world? I need to find new experiences for distillation. William: What do you enjoy wearing during your visits? I also always take evening clothes for gala events if there are any on my itinerary and just in case I find my way onto a red carpet. Expect total domination of the Fashion industry! William: What makes you happy? Thank you for taking the time to ask me such wonderful questions.
William: Benson, thank you so much for your candor and enthusiasm. What an inspiring dialogue. Plan in advance.
