Real Time with Diane Pernet

Tags: , ,

Diane Pernet knows the fashion industry inside and out. She spent years running her own label and working as a costume designer before changing course in 2005 and founding one of the first fashion blogs, A Shaded View on Fashion. In 2008, she expanded the ASVOF brand with A Shaded View on Fashion Film, a film festival that has since been held in Paris, Rome, Tokyo and recently made its American debut in New York City. Never seen without her iconic style, she recently emailed us from Paris to talk about her unique position in the world of fashion, the effect the internet has had on the industry and her abiding passion for film.

5 Questions

5 Questions for Writer, Laura Albert

Laura Albert is the author of three extremely popular novels – Sarah, The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things, and Harold’s End – published under the name JT LeRoy. JT was Albert’s avatar, freeing her to craft a new voice in fiction, until 2006, when The New York Times revealed her to be the actual writer of the books. Albert had ingeniously hacked the literary establishment, and today enthusiasm for her writing – as JT and under her own name – continues to grow internationally. Jeffrey Deitch’s characterization of the JT LeRoy saga as “one of the most interesting contributions to art and literature of the past 20 years” is supported by such recent activities as Albert’s speaking engagement at The Moth and the hit Brazilian musical “JT, A Punk Fairy Tale.” Proclaimed “the indie fashion fighter” by the SF Chronicle, she has attended literary events and judged at film festivals worldwide, including Diane Pernet’s A Shaded View On Fashion Film. Laura Albert responded to LASTBLOG’s questions, emailing from San Francisco about her experience writing as JT LeRoy, some of her upcoming projects, and how her creative process has changed since she began publishing work under her own name.

Learn to say no.

You simply can’t take on everything yourself. Many of us have an urge to try and be as helpful as possible by saying yes to everything, but it becomes very easy to spread yourself too thin in doing so. Try to only take on things you know you can really devote yourself to.
