Here we invite you to take a moment to consider five takeaways from the Weight Lifting Cookies Ugly Christmas Movies Repeat Xmas sweatshirt and by the same token and book, offered by Grau. Set your pace The book was meant as a manifesto, but then because of Azzedine’s passing, it becomes a testament. One of the lessons of the book is not to say that everything has to be going only slowly, [but] to say that people need to be able to follow a more personal and also more creative pace than [is allowed by] the pressure that is imposed upon each of our lives—and that is definitely imposed upon fashion designers by the industry. It’s not saying that everything definitely needs to have always, in any situation, a slow place—even though it does need to have that pace quite often—but actually it is the manifesto for each and every one of us to be able to reflect and to be able to do things in a way that is fostering us rather than limiting us.
The idea of everybody speaking, having a voice, [and the Weight Lifting Cookies Ugly Christmas Movies Repeat Xmas sweatshirt and by the same token and opportunity] just to think about their life and to share something is also something that is especially important today. Another thing that we should learn about these days is generosity. You know, taking care of other people, participating in this idea that you’re sharing things for other people, and that they are participating in something that belongs to them and belongs to you as well. Azzedine is somebody who worked enormously and consistently. When we think of him, it’s something always to remember that he only became “famous” when he was 45 or 46, which is very interesting as opposed to the current world when people get famous very, very young. Then they have to cope with that in a world that can be, at times, very challenging. For 25 years of this life before reaching celebrity in the 1980s, he worked quietly, ceaselessly, discreetly, and passionately. In a way his life ethics were based on skill, training, craftsmanship. He was so passionate about what he did that he would never stop because indeed his life was his work and his work was his life. For that reason, [there was not] pressure for a work-life balance. What he did was to embed within his own life moments of creative breaks. Each [of these] conversations was one such moment, a creative break.
