    Daniel Lismore: Be Yourself, Everyone Else is Already Taken, Love Infinity and Saving the Rainforest. Part 2

    Daniel Lismore: Be Yourself, Everyone Else is Already Taken, Love Infinity and Saving the Rainforest. Part 2

    Daniel Lismore is considered one of today’s most influential fashion leaders. 
    His authenticity and personal courage have inspired works of striking originality and bold ideas. Through the medium of fashion, Daniel achieves a synthesis of art, history and culture that truly transcend time.
    His book, Be Yourself, Everyone Else is Already Taken, includes contributions by Debbie Harry, Boy George, Steven Fry, Vivienne Westwood and Stefano Pilati.  
    His record-setting exhibition of the same name opened at SCAD FASH Museum of Fashion + Film in 2016, followed by Art Basel in Miami--later traveling to Iceland, Italy, and Poland. 

    Over his career, Daniel has collaborated with photographers like Mario Testino, Steven Klein, and David LaChapelle.  He’s worked with celebrated art directors, models, fashion designers, and actors. 
    As Creative Director of Sorapol, he won critical acclaim for his work with some of the world’s most beautiful and influential women: Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey, Rita Ora, Debbie Harry, and Cara Delavigne.

    This past year, Daniel starred in Burberry Creative Director Riccardo Tischi’s Pride Month campaign. Along side Iggy Pop, he starred in H&M’s Close the Loop Campaign promoting sustainable clothing, as well as Bulgari’s Sustainable Future campaign in 2019 and newly released Bulgari 2020 campaign. 
    Currently, Daniel presides as Circuit ambassador for the Tate Modern, and has presented two exhibitions at the Tate London.
    In this two-part interview we discuss Daniel’s work with Vivienne Westwood and her Climate Revolution projects, and his modeling career culminating in the September 2019 opening of Naomi Campbell’s Fashion for Relief runway show at the British Museum.
    We talk about Daniel’s costume design collaboration with Swarovski for the English National Opera’s production of The Mask of Orpheus, and his work with fellow Cool Earth Ambassador Pamela Anderson and David LaChapelle at the English National Ballet which he produced and starred in.    
    We highlight Daniel’s candid interview with Tim Yip, Academy Award Winning Art Director of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.  And share a sneak preview of Yip’s new film in which Daniel has a starring role. 
    We hear about a celebrated punk exhibition on the Thames in the company of Vivienne Westwood...and so much more. 
    If 2020 taught us anything it’s that we all crave freedom—freedom to create, freedom to prosper, and freedom to love. 
    In that spirit, I hope you enjoy this two-part series in which we explore fashion as art, and the role creativity can play in bringing our world closer together.

    AeroLyze: The World's First Breath Glucometer for people with prediabetes and winner of the US James Dyson Award, Poom Cholsaipant

    AeroLyze: The World's First Breath Glucometer for people with prediabetes and winner of the US James Dyson Award, Poom Cholsaipant

    For the first episode of our Second Season, we introduce US James Dyson Award winner, Thipok “Poom” Cholsaipant and his invention AeroLyze, the world's first breath glucometer for people with prediabetes. 
    In today’s episode Poom Cholsaipant and Andrea Alexa Smith talk about the thought process for designing Aerolyze, the emphasis on user experience, and the power of the breath as a simple and profound gift we all share. We discuss creating achievable habits of self-care, adaptability in technology with the use of AI,  making Aerolyze a sustainable product, creating sustainable lifestyle habits, and the significant reduced waste and costs associated with diabetes products such as shoes, wipes, test strips ---and of course the compound future costs of related disease such as heart, stroke, and glaucoma. 
    Poom is someone I respect for his absolute genius hands on approach to creating and looking to solutions for a problem that affects millions of Americans and existed in his own family- Type 2 diabetes. Poom’s democratization of design and vision for creating an affordable and accessible product for the people who need it most, including athletes and minority populations, is something we share a deep appreciation for. 
    Poom is an award-winning industrial designer and a recent graduate of The University of Washington.   Poom has designed a variety of lifestyle products including tennis sneakers, lampshades, an AR head set and time management tools. 
    We laud The James Dyson Foundation, The James Dyson Award, Dyson and Sir James Dyson  for the incredible due diligence in selecting and recognizing the potential of these young engineers ground breaking inventions like Poom’s Aerolyze. The James Dyson Foundation is the non-profit arm of Dyson, whose engineers are encouraging and supporting these young and bright design engineers who offer solutions to the problems of tomorrow to gain the confidence and resources to bring their products to life.

    This GDTT episode comes in time for November's National Diabetes Month. 
    The CDC states that more than 88 million Americans-more than 1 in 3- have prediabetes and those with it -about 90% of them  don’t know they have it. 
    Prediabetes puts a person at increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke which is an even larger risk group. 
    Prediabetes has a higher risk in some populations such as those whose had a sister, brother, or parent with Type 2 diabetes.
