Each Fashion Week brings an iteration of the new: varied locations, original concepts, bold stunts. Of course, this past New York fashion week was no different. Now, more than ever, I have come to notice two different camps in fashion. There are the ‘party-party’ show-ers and the ‘make a statement’ do-ers. Rag & Bone’s Fall… Continue reading Fashion Week’s Humanitarian Side
Amidst a sombre world outlook, a harrowing time for many, Dries Van Noten's 100th show was the breath of life needed to revive our spirits and kick us into optimism mode again. While trends of power women, fur and stripes on stripes were scattered throughout fashion month, none delivered such a positive note. Collections referred… Continue reading dries van noten: our spark of joy.
If you had told me seven years ago, while completing the HSC, that I would now be taking part in a fashion writing mentorship with Janice Breen-Burns and VAMFF, I would have laughed in your face. I would have made you feel stupid and offended with that evil teenage ability. Clearly it is now I… Continue reading oh the irony :: an underdog story.
I should apologise - two whingy posts this month already. And it's November! It's meant to be a happy month! And indeed is already proving to be. ( Even with the current shocking, unimaginable results of the US election, I refuse to turn into a ball of negativity. We can only fight to improve this… Continue reading a podcast gift for you.
Now that I'm in a job that doesn't occupy my mind non-stop, at least 8 hours every day ( not including the work-related nightmares / dreams ), I actually have time for Google. We’ve become best buddies. This is a somewhat dangerous thing, and hopefully only occurs when you are in an office with minimal… Continue reading the google of life.
Work-from-home day meant literally looking like I just woke up - unfortunately I wasn't the glamorous natural beauty that all the mags love to celebrate. Thankfully I wasn't expecting that, had too much experience with it already. Fresh(ish) and bare faced, ripped denim shorts, getting down to my work party of one. I have a… Continue reading got the brights.
Weather, what are you doing right now? It's meant to be spring, and somehow I ended up bringing my jumbo jacket to work today, carrying an extra kilo around. We should all be floating around in the sunshine right now with flowers in our hair, trying to dodge the hayfevery sneezes. Fingers crossed the weekend… Continue reading freestylin.
Ridiculous how many cool thangs / ensembles have come out of the recent fashion weeks. Sometimes I think the street style may actually be my favourite part of these periods. Don't get me wrong, I am in love with the fashion shows and the incredible creativity, art and inspiration that comes out of these. But… Continue reading just ridiculous.
It has been one of those ridiculously crazy weeks - those ones where you are literally getting through the day on adrenaline alone. Thankfully Phoenix was there to provide that source. Hence my complete lack of presence though. Now I can make up for some lost time. Some more of that street style from the… Continue reading resting up.
Preparing for what will be a crazy month ahead, this is my inspiration. And at least my blog is always here for that little creative output. Lately I've found that: when I'm in a good mood, I can't concentrate on uni work, and when I'm in a bad mood, well, there is no motivation for… Continue reading inspiration wall :: october
