Miss Moss Productions lifts the draped cloth from the theatre floor and invites everyone to a viewing of Sarah Tyler‘s RetroGlam inspiration piece, a behind-the-scenes video short of what we’ve been doing in preparation for TONIGHT, RetroGlam Night — a night dedicated to fashion from the 1950’s, a night dedicated to red lips and James Dean at Casa De La Municipalidad in Casco Viejo.
In the 50s beauty and fashion took center stage. Beauty was the easiest trend to follow in the 50’s as anyone could do it. Be it a statement red lip or a strong black line across the upper lid, this was an era where women celebrated and embraced being glamourous.
My name is Diego Bowie and I’m a fashion lover, music obsessed creature and performance artist from Panama!
I’m an empirical learner of art and style, experimenting all the time with new pieces, pushing the boundaries of what is “possible” with culture in this city but always keeping one word in mind: freedom. I have worked with a local art platform called Artblock, which has given me the chance to expose my art and also learn more about what a production really is about.
Alter Magnifique – Performance about the influence of media in the human brain, at Artblock.
The 1950’s was one of the most influential eras of our time. From the glitz and glamour of the silver screen, to the retro teenage rebels, the 50’s made big fashion statements that would be referred to for years to come.
In the last five years I have graduated from the prestigious London College of Fashion, dressed windows for Topshop, worked backstage at London Fashion Week, styled for L’Oreal hair shows and produced my own charity fashion show in collaboration with some of the UK’s top high street stores.
My Style Icons Sienna Miller (British actress) She is effortlessly chic, the queen of bedhead and makes anything look good. I like how she dresses in a relaxed way but will add something quirky! Florence Welch (British singer) Lover of vintage and current muse to Karl Largerfield. She has the most amazing red/copper hair and always styles it to suit the era of her outfits. Chloë Sevigny (American actress/singer/designer) A woman of many talents! She is sexy and not afraid to break the fashion rules. What I love about is her natural fashion flare.
After spending the summer in London and Italy and studying various courses at the London College of Fashion, I returned to Panama last month full of new ideas and inspiration and ready to embark on new independent projects involving events, branding and consulting within the realms of fashion, lifestyle, culture and more.
When considering a name for this new venture, ‘Miss Moss’ seemed to be the perfect option, given that it is the name I have always been known by and it seems to resonate fashion and British.
My vision is to enhance the sense of style and glamor in Panama and to inspire people to push their creative boundaries and challenge their existing ways of thinking and doing, starting with a new style of event which will be the first official event produced exclusively by ‘Miss Moss Productions’ on December 14th (watch this space for more information).
Over the last year and half I have been busy co-founding and co-creating Glamavida with my friend and partner Elly Van Os. Whilst it has been an incredible experience for us both, I am now ready to take on this new challenge of creating and developing ‘Miss Moss’ and branching out alone. I hope that all of you that got to know me through my time at Glamavida will continue to show me the same support. I have many new and exciting ideas and projects coming up soon, so follow me on this blog or on my new facebook page for all the latest news and information.
