DIS magazine launched today. It’s onläne. It’s fashion. It’s art. It’s DIS.
Basically, I spent my whole day discovering their pages (pun intended). They first feature that caught my attention, was Multitasking. So many arms, so much to do. Check out the pictures and multiply your arms. Then, I found the CGI fashion story by Ryan Trecartin.
I got more and more disoriented, lost in the DIS pages.
Finally, I clicked on A Sunday With Susan. OMG, I screamed in excitement and wet myself (downstairs). The fashion shoot features Rumi Missabu (of The Cockettes) and Donna Personna (amongst others) in Susan Cianciolo dresses. Eons ago, I’ve written a quick blurb about Susan. Here are just 3 pictures from DIS magazine, be sure to check the whole story including a Q&A at the end:
I had never heard of Donna Personna before. But after watching her youtube promo reel, Join The Donna Party, I’m a fan forever. She also performs at one of my favourite bars EVER, Aunt Charlies Lounge in San Francisco. Here are some mini pics I took at ACL in June 2004: one and two. I have to go back soon. Like NOEWWW.
Also, Ryan Trecartin will be in Toronto next week for an artist talk on Tuesday and an opening at The Powerplant on Thursday.

For a few years, Superschum and friends organized a small party truck for the gay pride parade in Frankfurt. All the people involved in the party wore the same t-shirt. One year, the theme was Role Model and everyone could choose their own role model to be printed on the shirt.
Toffi and I are still sad, that we both didn’t choose Mariah, we should have gotten the Rainbow album cover on our shirts. But that’s another story.
Anyway, my dear friend Steffi chose Susan Cianciolo as her Role Model. Steffi sometimes did clothes and patchwork blankets, so Susan was an inspiration to her. Now, I finally heard about her again.
Susan Cianciolo does a fashion line for Cone Denim. The designs will be on display at Sears Peyton Gallery in New York (210 11th Ave., Suite 802) from Sept 6 to 20 and in L.A. afterwards. (via papermag)
I am very curious about this and wish I could make it. Hope to get some pictures soon.
