Ticket 053020181114 Discovering Barbera Palvin

JC Angelcraft 1 Rue de la Bastille May 30 2018 The first settlement in the territory of Budapest was built by nomadic Peoples before 1 AD.  The area of Budapest from where Barbera Palvin comes from was once occupied by the Romans who were conquered.

Budapest is a wonderous and a mysterious place filled with ancient legends and stories of great muslims and christian knights.  With  castle fortresses  the women are of extreme beauty who still the hearts of men .

Before it was Budapest it was called– Aquincum which became the main city of Pannonia the lessor in 106 AD.

“I am going to the baths of Aquincum, get me my sun glasses.” echoe the words of time.

Aquincum was a military settlement and stronghold of Rome as many great cities of Europe tend to start off as. Gradually more civilization was drawn to its refuge and soon feasts, market and commerce became the focal point of city life.

If Aquincum was not spiritual enough it became Budapest a Holy city and dwelling place of God’s Holy Spirit.  Of its women men would say, “there is no rose garden like an Aquincum rose garden where the buds grow strong and wise.”

Budapest has many roses and if Helen of Troy ever had her equal it just might be Barbera of Aquincum.  And so aquiring its romance, we continue and we bless the name of Budapest as well.

Today the area from where Barbera comes from  corresponds to the Óbuda district within Budapest the place where Barbera Palvin was discovered.

Long ago the Romans constructed roads, amphitheaters, baths and houses with heated floors in this fortified military camp so they could protect queens and women of such great beauty and lore in the citadel of Aquincum.

The Roman city of Aquincum is not as it was before but the area that carries the name is one of the best-conserved of the Roman sites in Hungary. The archaeological site was turned into a museum with inside and open-air sections the likes few people ever hear about and with tremendous art venues.

Discovered in Budapest at the age of 13, Palvin shot her first editorial in 2006 for Spur Magazine and Hungry and the world has not been the same since.

She is very famous for such a young girl and Barbera has maintained a steady stream of work in the fashion business thanks be to God’s precious tender Holy Spirit the savior of our souls.

After her first major modeling job Palvin has been on the cover of  Marie Claire, Glamour Hungary and Elle in as many nations and languages. She has also walked inside the pages of Harper’s Bazaar and has appeared in campaigns for Armani Exchange, H&M, Victoria’s Secret.  Barbera is an ambassador for L’Oréal Paris and the fashion Industry and we make sure all our girls carry themselves like that.  I hope the older girls teach the new girls to appreciate the Industry for it is far more safer than it once was.

Sports Illustrated Swimsuit was fortunate to have Barbera swim in her pages and she was also featured in Armani’s signature scent “Acqua di Gioia.”

Palvin blessed Amazon’s  Fashion division with her presence and continues to bless many of us in different magazines around the world.

Her runway debut was as an exclusive for Prada during Milan Fashion Week in February  in a time not so long ago.

Palvin has also worked for other JC Angelcraft subsidiaries that include but are not limited to:

  • Chanel
  • Loreal
  • Louis Vuitton,
  • Nina Ricci,
  • D&G
  • et al.

Victoria’s Secret Fashion like Barcelona Bridal Week and Vogue and fashion industry tirelessly employs her.

Barbera, like all our girls compares to no one and each of our models is uniquely glamorous in her own right.    And what makes each one interesting and special is where they are from and how they are.

Barbera like many of the girls is inside much of the fashion Industry but her iconic looks are not always the same.  You may not always recognize her.

Be as it may I will give Barbera and all my models a little more of my fatherly advice.

Be yourselves but always make yourselves better and be aware of men’s hidden agendas.  Always be nice and pray even inside your mind so no one but God hears you.  And let no man make you look ugly or to look like a man and tell you its for a cause.  You are women.  You have a voice to politely protest and you have the goodness of God on your side so fear nothing.

To the men:  Let no man or woman make you effeminate and tell you its in fashion.  Be cowboys.  Be strong men.  Work out and go out with the women and get educated the both of you.  Marry a good woman and raise children and travel the world. There are lots of educational opportunities.

With love for Barbera Palvan and all the girls and firm handshake for the men,   JC Angelcraft

We are all indigenous to this planet.  We are all nomadic with the bug to travel and know our world as time and money permits.  We are angels living on earth whose only limits are  those constraints that we place on our life through our own mistakes.  So lets live right.

09152017 WHY OUR MUSE IS SO SPECIAL? BECAUSE IT IS A MEASURE OF GOD’S HOLY SPIRIT

Someone once said, I used to think that a muse was like a fairy that whispered in your ear, you know one of those sexy little tinker bells girls in a short skirt who look like cheerleaders such as Elle Woods or the Elle Fanning  fairy whom people love so much even possibly that Marlyland-Betty we know as Alicia Sylverstone

A muse. hmmmm, why is our muse so special.  Well first of all she is special because she is everywhere and in everything and sometimes the blessing is inside our own eyes and is a very personal blessing.  This attention to detail of our spirits by our muse is why creativity, commerce and business is so successfull.

Fashion Week is upon us.

Fashion week is always upon us with beautiful gorgeous women blessing our eyes with pouty lips and faces like little girls in need of daddy’s attention and affections.  What more could we ask for in this world?

Looking at fashion magazines I notice that Vanity Fair‘s lineup seems at times to bring out the best in the designers who create clothes for them or with them in mind.  Then as you pick up each different magazine its muse comes to life with fashion relationships compounding on fashion relationships.

Such is the way of the muse.

In the absence of talent and the blessing then a muse is “. . . someone or something who is blessed that lights a spark and get things moving.”

A muse is magical,  like the magic that happened when Audrey Hepburn met Hubert Givenchy.

Talented designers and the women who inspire them have created “musical” pairings  an energy so irresistable that without knowing they created fashion history.

Perhaps the greatest pairing of all time is the Hepburn/Givenchy relationship.

Then there is that of: Millicent Rogers and Charles James. Millicent certainly fit the gorgeous, skinny, somber requirement, but she was more than another Ideal women who made shine James’s fashions.

Millicent’s own taste and style often directed and invariably influenced the designers she worked with. Millicent pushed James to create what she wanted and perhaps was the cause of his success and the reason their relationship produced such great fashion sense. Their relationship began in 1930 when Millicent went to London with a group of friends to see a talked-about young designer named Charles James.

They say that Millicent’s name became paired with his at the height of his fame when she functioned as both his patron and muse.  But a good designer should need no human muse, unless it’s the spirit of woman in the flesh which is a whole different proposal.   That is why our muse is so special.

In the quickly changing world of twenty-first century fashion, it is hard to imagine the influence that a few key and highly respected fashion designers wielded in their time.  However, it is not hard to imagine that Fashion could not be successful without some sort of blessing from our blessed tender Holy Spirit

To keep our minds on beauty and color from pitty and compassion our Muse weaves in and out of a fashion world making sure God’s favor is seen in one or more designers through the collective of efforts of people dedicated to peace and beauty.

The fashion business would not exist if not for God. God, people and the human spirit are what keep alive designer brands.

After World War II, fashion became even more important  and Charles James was back then considered a giant, an innovator on the tip of every fashionable woman’s tongue in the forties and fifties.

His sculpted party dresses created in lavish fabrics and inventive colors was his signature.  His coats and capes trimmed with fur and embroidery also left their mark in fashion history but where is his work today?  Does anyone even care anymore?  Many names from his era are still around and his name is still around but his label has yet again to make a come back and the label has to confront Carolina Herrera and Oscar de la Renta and shoot directly for the top and nothing less will do.

It has also been noted that James was one of the oddest and most difficult personalities in the legends of fashion history.  Men of genius are often difficult.  They also inspire critics often say things in compliment that if they knew what they were talking about, they would retract their statesment.

One reviewer called him “kissed by the furies.”    God forbid. That is like being tapped by fates and drawn into a whirlwind relationship only later be dropped into some fashion folder and forgotten by the very people you helped rise to the top.

Despite all in the life of this kind and peaceful man there was Millicent who tamed James with her matchless manner; soothing, demanding and yet flattering. She always got what she asked for.  A good woman always does and their relationship was considered one of the most famous and fruitful designer-client collaborations in American fashion history.   Her tender kiss upon his work is what kept him going.

Oh him Cherri Burns wrote, “His first design for her was a nightgown, a “deshabille” of white and rose organdy trimmed with lace and biscuit colored ribbons when she was hospitalized with a bout of her recurring heart ailment. Instinctively he understood style and finery as a tonic for her morale. “

In all James created more than 45 original designs for Millicent, and her financial patronage was essential to his business success in the late 1940s.  Millicent was the prototype modern woman.

James passed away in 1978.  He has been born again and may even be in a business  unrelated to fashion. …aughh the horror to even think of not being involved in the fashion business,  

During his life as Charles James shared much with his wife Nancy who  explained, “Millicent Rogers inspired him more than anyone and that he felt that Millicent could help him to resolve a design when he wasn’t certain how to finish it.”

James was direct in his own admiration of Millicent and wrote to her in one letter writing,

“…when you came into my house everyone at once knew what they were to do, and how to do it. And that special quality of bringing out people’s work at its best was what gave you a special rating.”  

James’s crediting and kind and specially tender words of Millicent is what today has today brought his memory back and to the pages of JC Angelcraft Paris. We need more kind words about each other and less jealously.  At least that’s the I see things. JC Angelcraft
