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

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.

 

 

 

an i hate my life moment

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

 

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:

This here is the Comme Des Garcons Spring 2015 Collection.

 

I’ve been keeping myself super busy with creating these boards and illustrations using illustrator. I’ve found this is a really great way to remember each collection and also identify the silhouettes and specific details of each collection as well.

I basically start off with collecting all the images and putting them in order of how they appear on the runway, and then I pick out all the colours I can see in the collection and then finish off with the sketches.

 

Comme Des Garcons is always one of my favourites, the designs are so original, creative, and detailed, it’s so amazing.
