Have you been to the Jean Paul Gaultier Exhibition at the NGV? It’s on until February next year, you have plenty of time, but don’t miss out. And you probably have to go more than once, just so you can take it all in.

 

Above is a collage I made of a few illustrations I drew from the exhibition.

Foto Friday

November 21, 2014

Looking through these photos I noticed I’ve been reading a lot more lately. Almost all the photos are of books, or things I have found in books. Yay for books, they fill me with life and inspirations. Anyone been reading anything interesting lately?

 

I founds a delicious recipe for this Pomegranate-Banana Lassi. I can’t wait to make it!

Another shot from a page in the book ‘Around Australia with Jacky Winter’. Such clever typography.

This is a page from the newest Post Secret book.

My friend Joel was reading this and said it is quite great.

A little melfie after work on Sunday

This is the jacket I made today, using that fabric I’ve spoken about it previous posts. Didn’t actually turn out too bad.

My lovely brother left this for me, such a thoughtful boy!

This here is another piece of my collection, it’s like a tunic/top/dress thing. It’s menswear.

Is it just me or are the weeks flying by. I can’t believe it’s almost the end of the year. How are all your new years resolutions going? I totally failed mine. Haha, oops. Oh well, I suppose I can try again next year.

Here’s foto friday!

 

The sky and moon was doing some crazy shit one night and I totally forgot I took this awesome photo

The weekend past was so lovely and sunny. I took this while sitting outside in the Bourke Street Mall on my lunch break

We shot a mini doco at New Model Beauty Queen and this is me hiding behind one of their skull screens. So cool.

This wall of threads is also from New Model Beauty Queen. It’s just like a rainbow only it’s threads.

My dads famous garlic barbecued fish. So yum!

I started cutting my jacket today. I’m not as stressed about it anymore. The jacket will still look nice, would have looked nicer in black, but it still looks nice. I just need to finish it on time!

Hello. It’s not Friday I know but I want to bring back Foto Friday to my blog. (Here are the ones I meant to post on Friday.) It’s a little bit trickier these days because I usually post most of my photos on Instagram. My idea is to post different ones here, ones that wont be on Instagram. I realised I don’t take as many photos these days as I used to, hopefully this will change!

 

At Pellegrini’s with my friend. I think he had the ravioli and we both had the yummy watermelon granita.

My friends being antisocial. Haha, not really but it looks like it. We were about to go to the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibition, I think.

This here is a toile of one of the pieces in my collection. It’s just to test the pattern, so the final will be in different colours and fabric.

This is a mini Jean Paul Gaultier from the exhibition at the NGV

I saw this book at the bookstore and I really want it

Anyone who follows me on Instagram knows how much I love neons. This one is obviously at the NGV from the exhibition.

I’ve been making these a lot lately. Flat bread with chicken, mayo, lettuce and tomato. Simple but so satisfying.

I visited New Model Beauty Queen studio with my friends for our uni assignment. We’re making a documentary on them. These are some of there screen prints

Some lunch at home with my parents. My mum made this, in Albanian we call it ‘pita’. It’s yummy, but so many calories.

an i hate my life moment

November 8, 2014

As you probably know from the title I’m gong to tell you about an I hate my life moment. I think I was being modest when I typed ‘moment’, because it’s more like moments.

 

What happened? I went to Tessuti to buy my fabric for my collection and IT WASN’T THERE!!! WAHHHHH :((((((((((((((((

It was meant to be just like the one in the photo (which is the one I had to buy) except instead of the beige-y/creamy colour, it was black.

I am so mad at myself for not going to buy it earlier. But it’s too late. It’s gone. I just didn’t think anyone would buy it all. I just needed three metres to make my menswear jacket. The problem is that the outfits I had planned and the colours i had planned will not match with these colours. I had already bought the jersey knit fabric for the tunic that’s meant to go under this jacket and it’s like a taupe colour, and was meant to have black leggings with it. Those items in those colours will look like crap with this colour for the jacket. The black would have worked perfectly.

 

Now I have 4 metres of black jersey that I might have no purpose for. I thought of choosing other fabrics for my collection, but it’s too late, there is no time for that. I am so worried that it’s all going to look like crap. I am so worried that I just thought maybe I should just drop out. But I can’t do that. I have already invested so much time and money in this. I have sacrificed so much to be doing what I am doing and to be where I am. The pressure is totally killing me right now. And it is all because I didn’t go and buy my fabric when I should have.

 

Moral of the story guys, don’t wait until the last minute to buy your fabric.

Lesson learned too late by me. Wish me luck.

donatella versace’s ice bucket challenge video

November 4, 2014

 

There are some people who make me laugh so much all the time and i love them for that. One of these people is Donatella Versace.

I watched Donatella’s Ice Bucket Challenge on the Versace Instagram account a few weeks ago and I just keep watching it. Seriously, it is so funny. I love her!!

 

Some funny-fabulous person wrote up everything she says and that is just as funny as the video, here, look:
