My Precious Trash was created in 1999.
At the time it consisted in a black and white photocopied fanzine wrapped in clear plastic bag. It showed cut-ups poems, collages and pictures.
This magazine was distributed in places related to fashion, clothes, music and art in general.
My Precious Trash was for example available for free at the shop Colette in Paris, at John Zorn’s music Club Tonic in New York, at the Pineal Eye in London (Nicolas Formichetti), and in various galeries, cinemas and record shops in Tokyo, Toronto, Sydney and at the infamous weird music club called Les Instants Chavirés in Montreuil.
In 2000, Levi’s Vintage Clothing produced a full color issue of My Precious Trash which was distributed worldwide (10000 copies).
My Precious Trash is now regrouping all Alexandre Bellenger’s graphism, design and images activities such as film making, painting or illustration for clothes.
