THE SEVEN DEADLY SINS OF TWENTEEN
“In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different”
The words of Coco Chanel, a motto that Twenteen holds very dear to our hearts!
“Blessed are those who see beautiful things in humble places where other people see nothing”
The words of Camille Pisarro, some that I’m sure we all would agree with.
“No culture can live, if it attempts to be exclusive”
Gandhi said this, man knew his stuff.
“The world is a book and those that don’t travel read only one page”
St Augustine, this we particularly like here at Twenteen, makes us want to hop on a plane right
“Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing”
Benjamin Franklin, or both if you can.
“A ﬁlmmaker has almost the same freedom a novelist has when he buys himself some paper”
Stanley Kubrick, magazine writers too….. But we need the paper!!
“Without Music, life would be a mistake”
Friedrick Nietzsche, Right On!!
Clothes supplied by ‘Vintage For Sale’ and ‘A Child of Jago’.
