TFR is over. But check out TFR's owner new project for this year
Willa 2010

WILLA is the new thematic party run by Gallermic, the creator of TFR and Narziß, two regular events that grew into an unparalleled mediatic tour de force inside of the world of fashion and art, due to an exuberant visual and intellectual attack against mainstream culture in the Japanese society and in the globalized world. Taking into account this background, Willa is the ultimate sophisticated scenario to present Gallermic’s authentic reflections about life, the world, the human being, the good and the evil, the culture, the art scene, and most of all an excuse to show Galle’s exuberant ability to love. The objective of the party is to generate love and communication through a universal symbolism that reaches everybody’s heart. As Galle declares: “Willa is a party for the good flowers”.

日本語\\\\WILLA は、ファッションとアートの世界に偉大な功績を残した二つのパーティー、TFRとNarzißの創設者、Gallermicによる新しいパーティーである。日本社会とグローバライズ化された世界の主流のカルチャーに対する、圧倒的な視覚体験と知性による反撃を意図して開催されて来た。こうした背景を鑑み、WILLAは、Gallermicにとっての日常、世界、人類、善と悪、カルチャー、アートシーン、そしてとりわけGalleの愛についての表象を、究極に洗練された物語として送り届ける。このパーティーの目的は、すべての人々の心に届く普遍的な象徴を通して、愛とコミュニケーションを慈しみ、育むことにある。Galleの言葉を借りれば、「WILLAは善き花々へのパーティーである」。

~> Dec 12 (fri) 10P Narziß Celebrating *Ciao For Now. And Deep Throat to You All!* at Trump Room, Shibuya.

Next Narziß is the last Narziß, our last party: an erotic fantastic farewell. We are saying bye-bye after 21 parties: it's like the magical 7 x 3, the number of the perfection by excellence and of the individuality according to the numerology. For us is inhuman and perfect: like a triangle. For how extraordinary have We been all this time, after all... It’s arousing: Ciao for now. And deep throat to you all!

P.s. We don't want to be uncouth (but we want to be called uncouth), BUT this is the last party, the last photos, and the last chance to represent your groovy self... and there is NO turning back!

Interview in Enlgish:
DAZED: Could you tell me about the party that you are organizing right now? (The name of the party / When did you start having it? / How often are you having it? Etc… Give me the details!)
TFR: The name of the party is NarziB. Basically, NarziB is held every other week at Tokyo's most stylish spaces. We started the party from March 8th 2008.

DAZED: After establishing the party "TFR", you started having another party called "NarziB", what are the conceptual differences between those two? Also, what are the unite concepts?
TFR: TFR is a web magazine critiquing fashion, art and club culture in Tokyo. What differentiates TFR from other media is that we clarify our position and criteria on the issues we cover. The party we organized under the name of TFR was supposed to be the manifestation of our opinion. Therefore, we attempted to represent it through our fashion, the title of each party, flyer and everything. Basically, the concept of TFR parties were rather political and aggressive (ex. anti-globalization). We believe that TFR is something like a visual guerrilla trying to attack the mainstream culture. On the other hand, NarziB is a side project of TFR. Compared with TFR, NarziB doesn't necessarily intend to represent an opinion. It is merely for fun and networking. To us, there seemed like in Tokyo the so-called "community" is virtually non-existent. We want NarziB to be a cultural community for beautiful and individual people. We don't play loud music in NarziB. We want our guests to talk and know each other. NarziB is not fashion-oriented. A wide variety of people with different background are welcomed. As a matter of fact, our guests range from cultural figures like a film actor and an art curator to bohemian homeless. At the same time, NarziB is devoted to beauty. We have dress code for each party and the poor-dressed will not be admitted.

DAZED: Who writes the manifest for the parties?
TFR: Gallermic Mabuse

DAZED: How do you select DJs? Do you have a guideline for it?
TFR: We think there is a ridiculous overvaluation of the DJ nowadays. Specially in Tokyo, the Dj culture has reach the limit of idolatry, to become a Dj is the last burst of the ambition of the club kids. But why? It is like for Japanese there wouldnt be other way to be a star. And we consider that Dj ambition a misery of personality, lack of talent, and the worst tragedy of the parties along with Rave. Therefore, We are not music oriented. We want our visitors to get excited by interaction with beautiful people, to create community, icons and gossips. We rather select our guest Dj's by their cultural background and their beauty, and we called them the oldfashioned way: "selectors". Sometimes we dont even know who is gonna dj next party, we just improvised. Nevertheless, our music selection is rich. A wide range of classical, jazz, gypsy, global grooves, house, auld lang syne and cinephiliac music.

DAZED:What was the start of taking party snaps?
TFR: Just recording our memories.

DAZED: What/which kind of moment would you like to capture when you take photos?
TFR: Whenever as long as the subject is beautiful.

DAZED: What do you think about Tokyo party scene? How do you like to be placed in?
TFR: We don't really know what kind of parties are going on in Tokyo. We don't want to take ourselves within the context of Tokyo or anywhere on the earth. We prefer being regarded as a metaphysical concept without being restricted by biased idea, the name of a city or a country would possibly give.

DAZED: Could you tell me about the fashion style of the TFR guests? Do you have a special dress code?
TFR: Dress code = Individuality. Nothing is more important.

DAZED: Tell me about the concept of the exhibition you had this year, "POST NO FUTURE" at hiromiyoshii gallery.
TFR: Fashion is hentai. We can not help the association between something as superficial and hedonistic as fashion and the mere sexual pleasure full stop. Therefore, for us, a fashion personae who is not a hentai, it is an impostor, a traitor, an alienated puritan in disguise following trends who might just finish his days without a notion of personal style nor fashion itself. Fashion can be zoophiliac, necrophiliac, paediophiliac, dendrophiliac...all the paraphilias. And this can sound as obscene as fascinating, but most of all we are just trying to give an idea of the precariety of fashion these days. We spread fashion in all senses, and are here only to encourage creativity in personal hentalism.

DAZED: Do you have any plans to start up a new project?
TFR: Travel report by TFR's half Naokoula who is in a world round trip right now. And UBUROI, a fashion label for people who likes concepts like NarziB.

Thanks Dazed&Confused

we are a space of FREEDOM, FRESHNESS and ESCAPISM. from this perspective, we are one of the very FEW ORIGINAL MEDIA -and definitely the one that has the MOST TENACIOUS and CRITICAL OPINION- related to the 'WORLD OF FASHION'. yes, world we belong to, but also world we find abhorrent because it's representing the most visible side of the pseudo-well-being [CONSUMERISM], that behind glamourous SMOKE SCREENS [generally starred by 'MODELS' and 'POP STARS'], and making use of the so-called 'TRENDS', spreads the most recalcitrant STEREOTYPES of CAPITALISM and its just-apparent GLOBALIZATION... at THEFASHIONRAMONE [a.k.a TFR] you will find, then, the best alternative in fashion design and counterculture!!!!!

Prada Marfa

Fashion + Consumerism + Globalisation = Art? After Kate & Pete, Prada Marfa is the new postmodern skandal worthy of your banal attention...
While watching the photo, perhaps the reader thinks that suddenly, the fashion bussiness converted into surrealistic and chimaeric, and to open braches in the Texan desert is the new epiphany of vanity de luxe... No way! It seems that it turns out too much excentric even for richs. But then, what is Prada doing in the middle of nowhere??? In fact, even counting on Miuccia herself-s aprovement and with the accesories for the currently winter colection, the store is where it-s meant to be and does what it-s meant to do: MOCKING.
It-s a truth universally acknowledged: Prada Marfa is not a store nor it will never open. Prada Marfa is an instalation-sculpture made by Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset, two Scandinavian-born Berlin-based avant garde artists with fame of bad boys who go fucking around the sistem ingeniously (although with a kind of blockbuster financing).
In this particular case, they shoot us with some question: what happens when you take things out of its natural element? Or what is the truely sublime : the landscape or the consumption? And no matter what, if you could would you be willing to buy and adquire this icon of globalisation?
In essence, Prada Marfa is an ironic synnestesia between art and fashion that formulates a disparate displacement of the elements to question the authenticity of our consumer contemporary culture.
Unexpectedly, Prada Marfa is critic and autocriticized: it mocks us as consumers subjected to the effects of globalisation, and at the same time, it laughs at itself as a representative and glamourous agent of it.
But that-s not all: searching for trascendence in the roots of this banality, we can tell that Prada Marfa is a cliché in the middle of 'nothing', that 'nothing' that probably is the only real and true, but falls terrifyingly far from our common sense.
...We must acknowledge that Miuccia, in addittion to her intelligence, has sense of humor and courage to take on the rebellious project of the scandinavians.

Skandalous Postscript!!!! As this was not enough, two days after Prada Marfa opened, it was broken into, the crystals were smashed, the shoes and bags were stolen and suggestive words were spray painted. It-s been sinisterly suggested that those responsible were the leaders of the neighbour Chinati Foundation, the famous 'mecca of minilamism' before known as Marfa. Their motive for such actions...PURE ENVY!!!

¿Moda + Consumismo + Globalización = Arte? Después de Kate & Pete, Prada Marfa es el nuevo escándalo posmoderno digno de tu banal atención...
Al mirar la foto, tal vez el lector piense que de repente el negocio de la moda se convirtiO surrealista y quimErico, y abrir sucursales en el desierto de Texas es la nueva epifanIa de la vanidad de luxe... No, quE va! Al parecer, hasta para los ricos esto resulta demasiado excEntrico. Pero entonces ¿¿¿qué hace Prada en el medio de la nada??? De hecho, aun contando con la aprobación de la misma Miuccia y con los accesorios de la colección para el invierno vigente, la tienda está donde debe de estar y hace lo que debe de hacer: BURLARSE.
Lo dicho: Prada Marfa no es una tienda, ni siquiera abrirá un sólo día del año. Prada Marfa es una escultura-instalación hecha por Michael Elmgreen e Ingar Dragset, dos artistas escandinavos autoexiliados en Berlín con fama de pillos que andan mofándose del sistema ingeniosamente (aunque con financiamiento tipo blockbuster).
En este caso particular, nos acribillan con algunas preguntas: ¿qué pasa cuando tomas cosas y las pones fuera de su elemento natural? ¿O qué es lo verdaderamente atractivo: el paisaje o el consumismo? ¿Y aun y con todo, de poderse no te darían ganas de comprar y aquirir este ícono de la globalización?
En esencia, Prada Marfa es una irónica sinestesia entre arte y moda que formula un disparatado desplazamiento de los elementos para cuestionar la autenticidad de nuestra cultura consumista contemporánea.
Inesperadamente, Prada Marfa es crítica y autocriticada: se burla de nosotros como consumidores sometidos a los efectos de la globalización, y a la vez, se rIe de sí misma como agente abanderado y glamouroso de la misma.
Pero eso no es todo: buscándo alguna trascendencia en el todo de esta banalidad, se descubre que Prada Marfa es un clisé en el medio de la 'nada', aquella 'nada' que posiblemente sea lo único real y verdadero, pero que queda perturbadoramente lejana a nuestro sentido común.
...Hay que reconocer que Miuccia, además de juiciosa, tiene sentido del humor y coraje para haber aprobado el proyecto rebelde de los escandinavos.

Posdata Escandalosa!!!!! Como si esto no fuera suficiente, a los dos días de haber inaugurado Prada Marfa, la asaltaron, le qebraron los cristales y la puerta, se llevaron todos los zapatos y los bolsos y le hicieron pintas sugerentes, trayendo con esto diversas hipótesis sobre los malhechores. La más siniestra de todas apunta a los cabecillas de la vecina Fundación Chinati, la famosa 'mecca del minimalismo' antes conocida como Marfa. La razOn para tal actos...PURA ENVIDIA!!!

Me gusta mucho la foto , toda perdida en la nada. En un rato me hizo acordar al desierto de Kill Bill por donde Uma divaga.

No sé si me darían ganas de comprar ese icono de la globalización pero si me pondría de vándala con tal de tener un par de zapatos prada.

Está muy bonito tu blog ,tan creativo y la música muy muy linda :))))))
