BIO
Geboren in 1962 in Parijs, daar ontdekte ik al vroeg de geneugten in het scheppen van eigen creaties. Dankzij de ontmoeting in Parijs met een sieraden ontwerper, die in mij geloofde en me uitnodigde om zijn kennis met de mijne te delen waardoor mijn modellen door Marc Labat werden verdeeld.
Maar al snel kende ik de aanpak van de styling en evolueert met de kostuumontwerper van de nieuwe generatie van Cirque Archaos, waarmee een droomwereld van praal en pracht een essentiële rol speelt. De mix van ongebruikelijke materialen leiden tot een prachtig avondkleding.
Sinds 2002 ben ik gevestigde ik mij in het zuiden van Frankrijk, en vond ik de kans om mijn eigen atelier op te starten, weg van de drukte van de grote stad Parijs.
Het is in deze regio waar "The Sun" mijn workshop geboren zou worden B.d18.10, voor het maken van mode-accessoires, tassen, boodschappentassen, ... met het combineren van alle kennis en ervaring dat ik heb opgedaan in al de voorgaande jaren.
Ik hoop dat ik velen kan plezier met de mooie jeans tassen die ik maak en in elkaar steek met veel passie en let op een uitermate goede kwaliteit zodat ze no jaren mogen doorgaan!
Bewonder mijn creaties op Harry Tilley Gallery!

Biographie Brigitte DOUABIN
Née en 1962 à Paris, je découvre très tôt les joies de la création qui m’attire. 
C’est grâce à la rencontre avec une créatrice de bijoux qui m’invitera à partager son savoir que je commencerais à réaliser  mes propres modèles qui seront diffusés à Paris, puis exportés par le grossiste Marc Labat.
Mais rapidement, je me rapproche du stylisme et évolue avec la costumière du Cirque nouvelle génération Archaos, avec qui j’aborde le monde du rêve ou l’apparat tient un rôle essentiel. Le mélange de matières insolites débouchera sur d’étonnantes tenues de soirée.
Venue m’établir dans le Sud de la France depuis 2002, je trouve enfin l’opportunité d’ouvrir mon propre atelier loin du brouhaha de la ville. C’est dans cette région « Du Soleil » que je ferais naitre l’atelier B.d18.10, pour la réalisation d’accessoire de mode, sacs, cabas, … en mélangeant tous les savoirs et expériences acquis.

Barcelona, I love you


You definitely need to go to Barcelona in the summer, or at least when it's warm outside. When you don't have much time and not the biggest budget ever, this is the best tip I can give you. The last time I went there was in March and my husband and I only had two days. It was still a bit chilly and it rained one of the two days. Not that I didn't like our time in Barcelona then, it was just a bit more difficult to enjoy the city when you are looking for the next place to sit down and warm up ALL THE TIME. There was a certain amount of alcohol necessary to get in a relaxed Barcelona mood, most of the time, the city felt a bit overwhelming and stressful. 

This time, in June, I went to Barcelona with my best friend and it was long awaited. We had planned this trip a year before already, but then I had an accident and we couldn't go. So this time, we tried everything to make it happen, to not get sick, not to miss our flights and to avoid anything else, that could get in the way of our four day long stay. Just in the last moment, about 10 days before the date, our room got canceled via AirBnB, but we were lucky enough to find something else, still in our budget and in an OK location. In fact, it wasn't the worst staying not in the very center but in a residential area. We had two metro stations just around the corner and the area was pretty quiet at night. 

Next tip, when being on a budget: use the local supermarkets and markets to buy breakfast and snacks throughout the day. We had breakfast everyday at our apartment and later on bought some olives, bocadillos (sandwiches), fruit or pasteles (pastries) on the way. This saved us a lot of money and was the best way to do it for us. Whenever we found a nice spot, be it a parc bench, the stairs of the Catedral de Barcelona or some shadowy spot on the promenade of the Port de Barcelona, we sat down, had a snack and had a nice little break. 


Next thing that really took us places: walking! Walk as much as you can. Next thing, equally as important: pack comfortable shoes. We didn't. Or better, we thought, we had packed comfy shoes, shoes we had already worn a million times, but we both ended up with foot pain and blisters. So pack trekking sandals or something like that. And then, go :) We saw the nicest places when walking the streets of the city and we wouldn't have, if we had taken a taxi, a tourist bus or something else. 

One time, when exploring the Montjuïc mountain, we found a hidden outdoor café in the middle of a pine forest, where you could overlook the ocean and enjoy a nice café con hielo (espresso with ice) and something to eat. There was Jazz playing and it seemed like there were only Spaniards coming to the place. 



One day, while visiting the Tibidabo mountain, we entered the Temple of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and stumled into a gospel concert. We sat down and listened to the coir singing in Catalá and English and it was so good! We felt so lucky to experience this, the audience was clapping and dancing and everybody was invited to sing along. Definitely something I won't forget! 



Alltogether, it was a very musical trip. We also attended a classical concert of the orchestra and the choir of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, where we met an old friend of mine, who is living in Barcelona now. We watched a flamenco band and two Flamenco dancers in the Park Güell, in front of the cathedral on the Tibidabo mountain there was a little Country music event and everywhere else, there was some street musician or concert. At some point, it almost felt staged, because everywhere we saw people dancing or making music, as if all the Spaniards wanted to prove that they are as passionate as you always hear about. We enjoyed it a lot! 

Last but not least: don't miss out on the ocean! You have to go, it is the best after long days of walking, climbing up stairs and walking down hills. Maybe you don't have to go to the Barceloneta, it's the nearest beach to the city center, but it's also pretty touristy. We went to two different beaches, once to the Platja de Llevant and once to Badalona. Both beaches were very nice and not overcrowded. 



And now I let some more pictures speak for themselves... 



















On Comminity leadership.

The #Jab17 was an opportunity for several of our newly-elected members of Joomla’s leadership to meet their counterparts in other major projects, some CMS-related but most not CMS related.  From Joomla we had Mike “Demo” Demopolous, Joomla’s Treasurer; Yves Hoppe, Department Coordinator for Programs; Rowan Hoskyns-Abrahall, Department Coordinator for Events; and Robert Jacobi as our President.  Since this group was recently elected, it also presented valuable time in the evening and following the conference to get to know each other and discuss the important priorities for their departments.

The main take-aways from this event included ideas for maintaining the health of communities formed of contributors that put in just a couple hours a week.  The unconference format allows those attending the event to propose topics that are of common concern.  A room and time is assigned and any attendees that have similar concerns or solutions to suggest meet and share those ideas.  The topics attracting the most attention and attendance included:

 

  • how to “onboard” our newest contributors to make sure their first attempts to contribute to documentation or user support are a success and that first attempts to submit a Pull Request to improve the software are properly mentored and result in a successful and positive experience;
  • how to communicate effectively to a diverse community that is spread across continents, time zones and languages;
  • how to prevent burn-out of volunteers that have moved into critical leadership roles, especially release managers;
  • how to create a culture that teachs new contributors the “right way” to contribute in a way that does not embarass or discourage them; and
  • how to build succession into the responsibilities of each leader so that fresh enthusiastic faces can rise quickly in an organization and not be discouraged by long-term leaders that have lost some of their energy.

Art Basel

Es war eine last-minute Entscheidung auf die Art Basel zu fahren, ich wurde sozusagen von meinem Liebsten ein wenig geschubst, diese Messe zu besuchen. Er meinte, es würde mir gut tun, ich bräuchte einen Überblick was in der Art Welt so angesagt ist und sollte mal schauen, wie der Kunstmarkt so funktioniert. Er brauchte nicht […]
