This piece was written for VAMFF. It’s the unique intricacies and quirks that make us wholly who we are. Without these, we are not ourselves; we do not truly live the life set out for us. So it was that Kate V M Sylvester unintentionally discovered her craft. What was once a high school habit… Continue reading the report: wear me.
Obviously Rei Kawakubo deserves masses of accolades right now. Not only for creating such a distinct brand in Comme des Garçons ( and all without formal fashion training ) and being an ultra-cool low-profile lady, but also for becoming the theme of next year's Met Gala and famed exhibit - the only event I truly care for in terms of… Continue reading old school :: comme des garçons.

I… Continue reading time with :: hannah power
A good collage warms my little heart. So much. There is just something so great about different textures, different papers, different colour tones, all coming together in the one image. Like all these elements mixing together to create something even more magnificent. That's what they call synergy. And I love the hard work that goes… Continue reading collage-ville.
