Im back!

Okay after a massive hiatus in which I finished up my enourmous amount of uni work for the end of term, I am back. Currently working on my winter 2011 collection which is 1940s inspired. Ava Gardern is just too fabulous.

I am also inspired by the Christian Dior Spring RTW collection:

Akira I love you

Akira Isogawa is my official favourite designer. I wish he stocked in NZ, maybe I will have to take a trip to Australia just to aquire one of his beautiul dresses. I strongly believe that every girl needs to own at least ONE Akira Isogawa dress so I am going to make it my mission this year to attain one. PS if anyone knows anywhere that stocks Akira in NZ I would be greatful to know!

On a lighter note, eyebrow jewellery? I wouldn't say no, I have such terrible eyebrows.

Chanel Oh Wow

This is a style.com image from Chanel 2010 Fall. I actuall like this. I wouldn't wear in in the out in public Auckland. I would wear a lot of crazy thing but not this. But I would be happy to wear it in the privacy of my own home. However I am sure 'wearability' isnt reall the point of it anyway.

I love the jacket on this one. This is something Id wear in public. Once again the house of Chanel has blown me away.

green fashion

lately ive been thinking alot about green fashion. No not the colour, but the idea of owning something 'fashionable' that i wont just chuck out after a season or two. Kate Sylvester is my favourite environmentally friendly New Zealand Designer. I am obsessed with this dress:

If I had more that $5 in my bank account at the moment I would be down at KS in a flash. She also has a deal on her website where if you join the mailing list you get a free penguin classic book and 10% off! Wahoo! I dont really have time to read books but im still stoaked with this deal!

Kate Sylvester also does AH-MAZ-ING lingerie:

Embracing Technology

After a lengthy internal struggle, I have decided to a) embrace the new direction fashion media is taking, and b) create a fashion blog.

Compared to the speed of the internet, print media will most likely be phased out. I brought the most recent issue of British Vogue, and they were ONLY THEN mentioning the passing of prominent British designer Alexander McQueen. This is not due to the slackness of the British fashion media, but an inevitable consequence of print media being so snail paced to reach its audience.

One of my favourite fashion websites is lookbook.nu , here is my favourite look for today:
