Tafe Fashion Show

I'm wearing: May Day Market Top
Levi Skinnies
Jeffery Campbell Shoes
Some random perspex bangle thing from ebay

And Jackson is wearing a Provocator Top

I was very excited to go see the Ultimo Tafe fashion show with my dear friend Jackson the other night. It was a two/three hour freaken long ass fashion show that showcased all the years works. Nevertheless it was heaps of fun and it was good to see the final outfits that these students have devoted the year towards.

I thought most of the outfits were too whimsical, too over the top and something I would see on the streets of Japan. However, a few stood out that showed vast potential for the future. In addition, Jackson's friend, Deng (Yes very similar names, we could almost be twinzzzz) won a first year competition for his piece.So congratulations to Deng who wasn't even going to come on the night.
P.S - I could only take photos of the first year students works as well, due to my camera was running low on battery :(.
So this is Deng's work. I thought it was very reminisce of Balenciaga s/s 2008 

and here are the rest of the outfits - The theme was ceramics from around the world

At first when i saw the GIVENCHY fall/winter 2011 Rotteiler shirt i wasn't that impressed. I've never been a big fan of graphic tee's, insisting that they were more suited towards the 13 yr old fashionably unconscious teens of society. Yet it soon grew on me and suddenly it turned into an OBSESSION, a piece of item that i must have. This obsession may or may not have been assisted by the fact that Kanye West wore the same shirt.  And then with relentless searching and complaining, i finally found one at a non ridiculously expensive inflated price.

I decided to wear it to Sculptures by the Sea in Bondi for the first time with my friends Katrina and Louise. It was so freaken windy, I felt like a hurricane was about to spring out of no where. I was getting whipped constantly by little pebbles and rocks all over my body the whole day. Luckily I was more than fully covered, unlike my friend Katrina who had the pleasure of being pelted by those rocks all over her legs. To add to her shame her skirt kept rising up as well. I was also quite disappointed by this years work, with very few sculptures that caught my attention.
