Elaine Young & DNA Jewellery!!

Sunday, February 7th, 2010

I met Elaine Young on Friday February 5 2010 for a chat & discovered a lot about this fascinating lady with a fascinating design concept. Inspired by biotechnology Elaine designs “things” (as she puts it) but with a very interesting back story – bags & accessories with microscopic images, jewellery with your DNA (!!) & more.
You can discover Elaine’s designs for yourself at the Mori Art Museum store on the 52nd floor of Roppongi Hills, Tokyo & at the website
Have a listen to our conversation & discover more now – click on the play button below.
After the interview Elaine took my DNA sample to be inserted into a piece of jewellery which I’ll receive later – the story shall continue..

Where’s The Romance? Party Friday 2010.2.5

Thursday, February 4th, 2010

My dear sweet & secretly romantic friend Elizabeth Hildebrand is having a sweet, romantic & slightly cheeky Valentine’s party – Where’s The Romance – Friday 2010.2.5 – I’m very happy that I’ll be DJ’ing & you are invited!!
I had a quick chat with Elizabeth – click on the play button below to find out where’s the romance..
Here’s Elizabeth’s invitation (日本語 follows)..

Dear Friends,

I hope you’re well and that your 2010 is off to a fantastic start.

It’s hard to believe it is February already, and thus we come upon one of my, well, less than favorite holidays… indeed, Valentine’s Day. Bitterness and joking aside, I’m determined to embrace the holiday with a big smile, some exceptionally fun festivities, great friends, and a good sense of humor!

So please join me for a “Where’s The Romance??” party on Friday, February 5th, at FIAT SPACE in Aoyama. Friends, partners, couples, hopelessly romantic souls and otherwise, all are welcome.

Come with your heart on your sleeve, figuratively or literally, and I look forward to seeing you there.

Kicking the night off with a special “Electro Love” set, we’ll welcome DJ Guy Perryman (InterFM), and we will also be wishing Guy a Happy Birthday for his special day. Very excited that fabulous and renowned DJ friends Marshall (Solid), and Ryuichiro (Pinacolada Records) will also be kind enough to spin, and knowing their music I’m quite certain I won’t be the only one on the dance floor.

A night surrounded by fabulous friends, with fantastic music, in one of Tokyo’s most stylish new lounge bars. What could be more romantic than that?!

Please feel free to invite friends and forward this email to others who may like to join.

Many thanks and I truly hope to see you on Friday!
