Andy Dixon: Pleasure Studies

September 21st, 2013 @ 11:54am by Michelle Kim

I first met painter Andy Dixon at a pool party in the Southlands a few summers ago. The host of the party was celebrating the completion of renovations that transformed his house into a re-imagined mid-century home reminiscent of Richard Neutra’s Kauffman House in Palm Springs — with its large glass sliding doors that opened […]

Outstanding in the Field at UBC Farm

August 13th, 2013 @ 11:30am by Michelle Kim

Photo: Michelle Kim for Miss604 Ever since I attended the magical Araxi Longtable event at the breathtaking North Arm Farm in Pemberton back in 2011, I’ve been obsessed with the concept of farm dinners — where people sit down at table that stretches as long as a length of an Olympic swimming pool and communally […]

Whistler Film Festival 2012

November 30th, 2012 @ 10:22am by Michelle Kim

Today, I’m driving up to the Whistler Film Festival once again (I think this is the 5th year I’ve covered it for Miss604). I really look forward to this time every year; snow and movie magic go very well together. Unfortunately, I’m only able to cover the festival for few days; however, I’m interested to […]

Vancouver Fashion: Chloe Angus Designs

November 9th, 2012 @ 12:12pm by Michelle Kim

My first encounter with Chloe Angus Designs was back in 2008, upon first meeting actress (and now very close friend and colleague) Kristine Cofsky at the Toronto International Film Festival. A film she was the lead in, When Life Was Good, was premiering at the festival, and every night, at a different party, she was […]
