Each show we do comes together in it’s own unique way. Some are full of passion and drama, others are more easy going and organic, then you have a few that are completely indescribable. We wanted to share a few moments of what’s happening before the doors are open and the music starts. This will be the first of many.
BACKSTAGE LOOK #1: CREATURES OF THE WIND FALL 2012
At The Desmond Tutu center for Creatures of The Wind we transformed the refectory of the old seminary into a dark fantastical garden with music by Hisham Bharoocha.
Models wait in line for rehearsal in the ethereal light of the seminary.

Anyone who has walked through the subway station at West 4th Street might be wondering the same thing as a few of us here at the Dizon Inc. office, what is The Great Googa Mooga? There are billboards bombarding you as you walk down the hallway, covering the walls of the station with photos of top NYC chefs and their respective restaurants.
This prompted me to google Googa Mooga once I arrived at work. According to the website, http://www.googamooga.com/, The Great Googa Mooga is “An amusement park of food & drink… something wonderfully great.” There will be live musical acts to accompany your food and drink consumption, as well as featured guest speakers. An amusement park of food and drink with live music? Well sign me up! Here at the office we take our food seriously and were all over this, even setting an alarm to remind us to register for tickets! Luckily we were all able to get tickets and are patiently awaiting May 19th & 20th to enjoy the festivities. Will you be going to The Great Googa Mooga?
Although we are already making plans for the next round of spring shows (2013!!) we don’t want to miss spring 2012, which has officially arrived. Here are just a couple bright spots from our spring 2012 collections. Enjoy!
PS: We know we have been neglecting our duties here… But we are back in the game, so get ready for more updates to come shortly.
