ASVOFF Festival Sets New Dates and Venue for 10th Anniversary

CHANGE OF SCENERY: The annual fashion-centric short film festival “A Shaded View on Fashion Film” has found a new venue for its 10th anniversary edition after Pierre Cardin withdrew from the event.
Originally set to take place from Sept. 7 to 9 at the 96-year-old designer’s Palais Bulles, located in the French city of Théoule-sur-Mer on the Mediterranean coast, the festival has been rescheduled for Oct. 12 to 14 at the Club de l’Etoile near the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, organizers said, without proving additional details.
The jury, to be headed by Spanish actress Rossy de Palma, will include Rick Owens and his wife and muse Michèle Lamy; Jean Paul Gaultier; costume designer Eric Daman; Pamela Golbin, chief curator of fashion and textiles at Les Arts Décoratifs; artist Orlan, and film critic Elisabeth Quin, among others.
Founded in 2006 as “You Wear It Well,” the festival was renamed “A Shaded View on Fashion Film” in 2008 when it moved to Paris, to match the “A Shaded View on Fashion”  blog created by Diane Pernet, a blogger and multihyphenate industry insider.
The three-day program will feature more than 80 films, including a collaboration with the film school École de la Cité and Casa 93, a

Altuzarra’s La Coupole Venue Gets Guests Reminiscing

DINNER TIME: Legendary Montparnasse Art Deco brasserie La Coupole, which was a home-away-from-home for Paris intellectuals and artists for much of the 20th century, got guests reminiscing at the Altuzarra show Saturday around lunchtime.
“I love this place, I haven’t been for ages,” said Jeanne Damas. “My grandfather restored it in the Seventies. He was an interior designer.”
What is her greatest food memory of the lieu? “Eating oysters,” said Damas, who was sporting a denim look from her own label, Rouje. The brand is currently online only, but a retail outpost could be in the works, she said.
“It’s gorgeous,” enthused Naomi Scott of the mythical venue, with its painted columns, cupola ceiling and mosaic floors. “I’m kind of waiting for them to bring out the food, I wouldn’t mind. Food and fashion is a good combination.”
Speaking of food, Scott was planning a low-key dinner with friends Saturday evening, hoping her favorite French dish would be on the menu. “I love duck. How do you say it? Canard.”
For Pierre Hardy, the venue brought back memories too. “I have spent many a night here,” he said. “In the Nineties, it was really hype to have dinner here before going out, it’s a mythical place.”

They provide a portrait of British life, in all its nuances, both exceptional and mundane, beautiful and harsh. It’s the spirit of those photographs – sometimes ironic, sometimes tender, always truthful – that has guided our September collection. Together they will form an exhibition in our new show space, celebrating a very British way of life and way of dressing.”
The exhibition will delve into “the British way of life and character,” will showcase works from over 30 photographers and will take over three

10 Ways To Save On Your Wedding Venue and Menu

By Amy Levin-Epstein for TheKnot.com

You don’t have to test your credit limit (and then some) just to have a reception in a beautiful location with delicious food. Here’s how to rent a sensational space and put together the menu of your dreams, whether your budget is little or limitless.

2015-04-30-1430402799-2559013-venue.jpg

Get married on a Friday or Sunday.
Whether you’re married on an off-peak day — aka not Saturday — or a less popular time of year (generally late fall through the winter), you’ll probably score a sweet venue for a steal.

Slash your guest list.
This isn’t an easy thing to do — until you see the savings start to accrue exponentially. You’ll seriously save on catering by feeding less people and on your invitations (not to mention postage). And having a smaller space also means less décor and rentals.

More from The Knot: Can We Just Not Serve Dinner at the Wedding?

Go with a venue that’s ready-to-roll.
If you’re a big Father of the Bride fan, you might have your heart set on a wedding at home. Well, George Banks flipped out throughout the film for a reason — a bloated budget. Between rentals on everything from tents to toilets, creating an event where they usually aren’t hosted (whether it’s a home or a bare-bones venue) costs a lot more than a traditional venue.

Exchange vows and celebrate in the same place.
If you’re getting hitched in a house of worship, your hands are kind of tied, unless there’s a reception space across the street. But if you can say your “I dos” anywhere, choose a venue that can do double-duty for your ceremony and for your reception. Not only will you save on venue fees, you’ll also cut costs on transportation and possibly flowers. (For instance, you can have your coordinator transfer your ceremony arrangements to your gift and cake tables while your guests are enjoying the cocktail hour.)

Consider a plated dinner.
It seems weird, since a sit-down dinner can seem more formal and expensive, but stations mean people can take as much as they want, so your caterer will need to cook more food just in case Uncle Bob decides to see how many beef satay skewers one man can eat (the answer: too many for a tight budget). That said, a buffet will save you on labor costs. Family-style is a third option that’s currently having a major moment. Plus, it cuts down on food waste (since people only take what they want to eat and don’t have the option to eat more than what’s on the communal plate). Talk to your caterer or venue coordinator about which is the cheapest option for your particular party.

Opt out of the open bar.
Offer your guests beer, wine and a fun signature cocktail. Since your venue or caterer won’t have to uncork tons of different bottles (usually with an “if it’s opened, you bought it” mentality), you’ll save money without having thirsty guests.

Serve comfort foods.
Pretty displays (or plates) of mac and cheese and BBQ chicken are guaranteed crowd-pleasers. Seriously, ask any potential guest — whether they’re eight years old or 80 — if they’d prefer crispy fried chicken or a baked breast with a fancy sauce — we think we know the answer. Fun food makes for a fun party — and is totally on trend right now.

Skip the champagne toast.
Nothing is sadder to a bride or groom on a budget than seeing a ton of half-finished champagne glasses littering the reception tables after a toast. People can toast with anything they’re drinking. If you want bubbly, go with champagne’s lower-priced, but still perfectly chic and tasty, cousin — prosecco.

Think seasonally.
Strawberries and other fruits and veggies out of season cost more and are not as tasty–a lose-lose situation for your menu and your budget. So if you’re getting married in July, by all means, give strawberry shortcake a place of honor on your dessert table — but if your nuptials are in the fall, serve mini pecan pies as a nod to the season’s biggest holiday.

Throw a brunch reception.
Having a midday brunch reception is not only guaranteed to be a surefire hit with your guests (who doesn’t love breakfast food?), but it’ll also help you make the most of your budget by cutting your alcohol costs way down. Your guests will love upscale versions of brunch favorites, like lobster eggs Benedict, roasted breakfast potatoes sprinkled with truffle salt and a Belgian waffle bar (with seasonal fresh fruit and homemade whipped cream). For your signature cocktails, put a twist on the classics with a garnish-it-yourself Bloody Mary bar and different types of mimosas.

You’d Never Know That This Sparkly Venue Was A Sad, Empty Lot

We love a savvy bride — especially one that can take a sad, empty lot and transform it into an incredible wedding venue using 11,000 twinkle lights and her creative juices!

Redditor Lenabean did just that for her April wedding. According to her post on Reddit, she rented out the Agricenter in Memphis, Tennessee — which is used for farmer’s markets May through October — and turned it into a sparkly masterpiece.

Check out the before and after pics below.

And get this, the DIY bride says the 11,000 twinkle lights she used didn’t break the bank thanks to some forward thinking. “We planned way ahead bought them all during Black Friday at Home Depot and spent about $ 300.”

Wedding planning at its finest.
