Coco Chanel, the French Fashion designer who inspired and ruled over couture fashion for six decades, is quoted as saying, “Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street; fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”
Chanel created the “little black dress” and brought simplicity to the world of woman’s fashion with the use of unconventional fabrics and design, setting the fashion tone for the 20th century.
Ninety-seven years after Coco Chanel opened her first shop in Paris, Keitsha Klash, a 38-year-old French designer, is in the midst of her own fashion revolution. She refers to it as Mystik Revolution, the same name given to her clothing line of low-cut dresses, free-fly suits, and clothing that is sensual in movement, embodying a woman’s spirit.

One only has to converse with Clair Halliday a matter of minutes before realizing you have encountered a powerhouse in a pint sized package. She doesn’t shy away from what some may consider uncomfortable questions, while delving into rumors and innuendo straight on. She will make certain that the one perception of her you leave with is the one she presents of herself. In short, Clair is a no nonsense young woman with a drive and determination that is usually drawn to characterize males on a blacktop playground, not a 5’4, 105lb attractive female. If ever there was an individual who possessed that “will do” spirit, it is Clair Halliday.

In speaking with an up and coming B.A.S.E. jumper, I inquired if they had heard of “Jevto Dedijer”; they paused for a moment and said “they didn’t think so.” When I in turn asked, “B.A.S.E. 66”, he replied, “The book? Yes I have heard of it.” In a sport where names seem to become lost and number’s take their place Jevto Dedijer cemented his number into the history of the sport at Europe’s exit points and behind the brightly colored orange book jacket with the simple title, “BASE 66”.
