Have you been following the shows? I have been trying my best to keep up. This is a quick illustration I did of one of my favourite Celine looks. I always love Celine <3
I heard about mason jung today. Actually I only heard of him about 30 minutes ago, and I already think a lot of him. His philosophy and source of inspiration is really interesting. It is also interesting learning about Korea through him/his story.
First day back at uni and we looked at Flat Collars. Like the Peter Pan collar.
A flat collar is flat, it has no stand and lies flat on the garment. We made a pattern for one and tested it onto the mannequin. Below is a photo of my first attempt. For homework I need to design another flat collar, which I will end up actually making in fabric.
I also researched flat collars and other collars, and found some really cool ones and also a wordpress blog dedicated to collars and neck lines, it is actually pretty cool.
Here’s the link to the blog: HERE
1. The world is in my head. My body is in the world.
2. The world is my idea. I am the world. The world is your idea. You are the world. My world and your world are not the same …
(A quote by some philosopher or psychologist, I tried to find out for you but my google and I aren’t really friends right now. It’s a cool quote right? Makes you think?)
My Merleau-Ponty book arrived in the mail today. It is a philosophy book I ordered online a while ago. My copy of Vogue arrived in the mail yesterday (my sister bought me a subscription for my birthday, so excellent). I bought the latest Harpers Bazaar today because I read it at the hairdresser yesterday and it had some really good bits on models and Karl Lagerfeld. Also a shoot Karl photographed and Carine styled. And also a bit about Dolce and Gabbana, the designers and their daily routines. It also had a snapshot and bio of all the current models and so that’s why I bought the magazine so I could have these articles to keep forever. Then I also bought a copy of he latest Time magazine, because I think it’s important to keep up to date with what’s going on in the world.
Also just so you know, I have this tendency to call these famous people that I admire by their first names. I don’t say Karl Lagerfeld, or Carine Roitfeld, or Anna Wintour, or Jay Z. I say, Karl, Carine, Anna, Jay. All my friends know who I’m talking about most of the time without me having to say their full names. It’s really funny when I’ll say to someone, “oh, yeh, I’ve also seen Anna wear the same necklaces over and over again. It’s worthwhile investing in good jewellery.” And then my friends are like “Anna? Who is Anna.” And then I’ll have to say “Anna Wintour, duh!”. Haha, and then my friends will be like, “Of course Anna Wintour.” Haha, am I the only person who does this? Is it normal? What is normal anyway?
So, basically, I have all these things to read. And also my current book; some short stories by Alice Munro. I WANT TO READ THEM ALL AT THE SAME TIME, BUT I CAN’T. So for now I flipped through the magazines and looked at the pictures. Vogue is actually excellent because the inspiration is art and they have a feature on Kathryn Del Barton. I LOVE KATHRYN DEL BARTON. She has actually helped to create the covers, and possibly some of the other features in the magazine. And I read the intro to the Merleau-Ponty book, but I had to stop because I want to read the Munro book. But I don’t have time to read TIME. lol.
I had some images of looks I wanted to share from Day 1 of NYFW however wordpress cannot upload them at this time, I managed to get this one above to load. It is just a list of the shows that were on today. The ones on the list below the line are not actually on the schedule, I’m not too sure why but my guess is these guys just show in private salons? Not sure… The highlights are the collections I looked at, I couldn’t find images of the other ones.
My favourite looks are from the following designers:
Brandon Sun, Marrissa Webb, Rodebjer, Tadashi Shoji and Tome.
Check out this bio of Anna Dello Russo, it is so funny.
Fashion week in New York begins on the 6th of February, which is today, I think it’s like 7am in New York at the moment. So we shouldn’t be blogging and online, we should be getting dressed into our pre-prepared fashion outfits for the day, quickly, the first show is at 9am!! (oh that would be a dream.)
Fashion week is the most exciting time in fashion. It is the time when you get to see what those talented designers have been up to and what beautiful things they have created for us.
Because I am so kind, teehee, I have listed all the show dates for each of the four cities and also linked you the schedule. I can’t make any promises, but I will try and report something for each day!
These links are your golden tickets from me!
New York Fashion Week: 06 February – 13 February
London Fashion Week: 14 February – 18 February
Milan Fashion Week: 19 February – 24 February
Paris Fashion Week: 25 February – 05 March
Here’s Anna Dello Russo, she’s insanely passionate about Fashion. She says here she changes her outfits 3 times a day. Ps. she’s Italian and works for Japanese Vogue!
You should always try to pronounce things correctly.
I’m behind in blogging as usual because other things are taking over. Other things such as gym. I have been going everyday. Today I tried Pressed Juices for the first time. I had one with Cucumber, Pineapple, Lemon, and something else… it was very refreshing. I want to try them all. I’m not joking. They have like a list of all the juices/smoothies/others they make and I’m highlighting the ones that I have had.
Anyway… I found this on youtube the other day and it’s been one of the best films about Alexander McQueen that I have watched to date. It’s a bit sad though. But don’t let that stop you.
A little delayed but here are my favourites from the Golden Globes.
I noticed I seem to have picked all light colours. Maybe the weather has influenced my choices. It’s damn hot in Melbourne. This is the 3rd day of 40+ degrees.
Hi. It is Christmas Eve, what is everyone up to? I am lucky enough to have the day off, so I have been getting some last things ready for tomorrow ( I don’t celebrate Christmas, but do get involved with celebrating friendships, giving presents and eating delicious food) and doing some relaxing too.
I want to try and blog more ( this is something I always try to do), I realised what this blog is mostly, is, me documenting my life. I will try and create other mini blogs which I’ll provide you with links for as I create them, which will make it easier for me and everyone to find things, like for example if you’re interested in fashion, there will be a fashion link, and if you’re interested in cafe culture, there will be a link that will have only cafes on there.
Today I want to document my new personal re-style.
When I moved back to my parents house I realised that it was time I dealt with my increasing collection of things. I don’t really think that I have ever thrown anything away. My papa secretly calls me a hoarder and my mama nicely puts it as ‘collector’, haha. Also I think it is time for me to let go of the past and start moving forward and become the me that I have always wanted to be.
I am starting with my clothes. I realised I do love wearing mostly black, maybe white, grey or navy too, and I realised that it is ok that I don’t love colour. Sometimes colour is ok, but only sometimes for me. The top in the picture above is the first item I have bought for the “New Juliet Project”. It is from Sass and Bide. I love it, I think I am going to wear it all the time. I feel cool when I wear it. I have this thing where I don’t want to have millions of clothes, I just want to have some really nice ones that I can enjoy wearing.
