What It Takes To Be A Marie Kondo - How I Faked My Way To The Top Of Paris Fashion Week - Ufl Video Sharing.

What It Takes To Be A Marie Kondo How I Faked My Way to The Top of Paris Fashion Week 1 day ago   07:51

If you’ve watched Marie Kondo’s new show on Netflix, you may have caught yourself wishing that Marie herself would come to your house and save you from your mountain of endless clutter.

That’s not going to happen, of course. Ms Kondo is far too busy.

But if you’ve got the cash, you can hire a surrogate.

For around $2,000, Konmari Inc offers certification as a Konmari Consultant. Once you’ve gone through a fancy seminar and completed hours of on-the-job training, you are officially authorized to tell people how to clean up their messy room.

VICE News went through hours of folding lessons, visualization sessions, and origami breaks to find out what it takes to be a professional wannabe Kondo.

His narrative is so negative...it’s making me feel bad... it feels close minded and feels like he came into this story with negative preconceived notions, or maybe it started when he went to the training.... so so negative... His body language (go to the beginning and look at his expression when he sees all the women in the training)...it’s like: have you never seen a sea of (enthusiastic) women before? I don’t agree that social work as a field is less than helping people physically and physiologically de clutter their lives, which is also a for if social work, but I wouldn’t try to belittle the women for it. He didn’t verbally do that, but his choice, or whoever edited that portion, did it with a certain intent if you look back... Just because you don’t agree with certain aspects of this Konmari method doesn’t mean that her method isn’t making a significant impact on people’s lives or isn’t valid in some way. Even if you disagree with it, don’t belittle the method or the people wanting to be involved in it. Shame on you Vice for allowing this reporter to share this story in this way. Reporters are supposed to report. His personal negative views put such an damper on the narrative of this story. Sad.
Lmao I been watching him for years and aint know he could speak Japanese lol

Paying for someone to organize your things isnt a new thing . Why is everyone acting like Marie kondo invinted it. I dont get the its a scam thing, i think people think of it the same way they think of collageen facials.... unaffective but truth is Marie is quite affective in what she does its a matter of personal opinion
THE BEST PART IS THE ACTUAL DISCUSSION IN JAPANESE because I feel that the main point is always lost in translation. People always treat the tidying and the process as a joke. What's worse is that people end up teasing her mannerisms. I mean, yes, she's very bubbly, but she's also intelligent. She's not just some folding master or tidying expert. It doesn't take that much to learn how to fold well or organize well imo... just practice and careful planning. The main takeaway for her method is just keep things that work for you, envision the environment you'd like to be surrounded with (not just a cleaner version, but something that WORKS for you and PLEASES you). It's not minimalism or just a method of cleaning/organizing, but being conscious of the things you own.

It just really made me happy when he started off with noting that the konmari method isnt just a tidying method, but psychological as well.

People can be so negative and make up so many nonsensical theories. This is concerning. It’s ok if u think the price is too steep then learn it yourself. Some people think it’s worth it to pay that much money. I don’t think it’s a wise idea to take your opinions to a whole other level and say that she’s a cult leader without evidence. If you don’t think it’s worth it just leave it at that.

I hope you weebs cry your selves to sleep knowing you will never be Japanese.
Diane Puri
do you live in nyc ? you need to come to the pacific nw ! omg the japanese would love you !!

Marie Kondo, she's amazing. End of story.
2000.00 a person x about 50 ppl there. Dang I'm going to teach tidy
JG Oayabac
I tried her methods and it gave me a new appreciation for my things. If that's a cult, I'm gladly joining
This would be my dream #cathylife right here! I would love to take this course! Putting it on my dream board! #goals

that moment this guy speaks in japanese, im jealous
My home has never been the same since I picked up her book in 2016! It really changed my life! After seeing this I hope you know that you truly helped her and that’s remarkable... Thank you for sharing!

Look at those crazy eyes
No one knows who she is in Japan lol

i mean if he was sent to do the report and interview Ms Kondo is because of all journo vices has, he is the more fluent speaking japanese, why are people surprised? it was the most rational decision.
Half the fun of neatening things up is messing them up again. Personally, I find the thought of a minimalist lifestyle slightly unsettling, sort of like those people who choose to live in little houses on wheels. Why make such a fuss about things that won't really matter in the end. I remember when there used to be one poor kid in every neighborhood whose parents kept everything in the house as neat as a pin at all times. You felt like you were walking into a museum -- a museum that would become a mortuary if anything got put out of place. Then came the 1980's and a lot of people starting keeping these scrupulously neat houses, even the lawns had to be well neigh perfect. I've noticed that a lot of these people claim that doing all this actually saves them time; I'm yet to be convinced that is is actually true. I've employed a lot of engineers in my company over the years, and I can assure you that it's never the office neat freaks who do the best job. I believe that the most creative minds make are often too detached from the physical world to make themselves slaves to it. I've been told that the greatest artists (back when art was artistic) were incredibly messy people.

How I Faked My Way to The Top of Paris Fashion Week What It Takes To Be A Marie Kondo 1 day ago   04:25

Oobah Butler of fake shed restaurant fame is back and this time he’s turned his attention to the world of fashion. Paris Fashion week is iconic amongst A-Listers and fashion inner circles. It's the place where you find all the next big trends, the crème de la crème of fashion weeks. Georgio Peviani was getting loads of attention at PFW.

Buyers from Milan wanted his denim in their stores, the inner-circle wanted him at their showrooms and A-Listers partied with him at night. But the man doesn't actually exist.. does he? This is the time Oobah Butler faked his way into Paris Fashion Week.

WATCH NEXT: The Shed at Dulwich was the number one rated restaurant in London, but the main problem was that it didn't exist - https://vice.video/2KbdNzI
