One might ask why on earth would I choose to put this brooch on my digital fire print t-shirt. Well you see, it's a watering can. Watering cans generally hold water. Water is the antithesis to fire. HAHA I'M SO IRONIC. For those of you who have been following my sartorial adventures from the beginning, you would remember a post featuring this shirt before. To prevent myself from breaking the holiest of holy fashion rules, repeating one's outfit, I thought I would challenge my abilities as a stylist, show the versatility of this shirt and create another amazing outfit distinct from the previous entry.
So behold! The watering can! Solving outfit dilemmas since 2012! The watering can accessory has been used expertly to change the overall dynamic of the shirt. The similarities between changing the whole outfit with a brooch and removing the glasses and pony tail from the ugly girl to make her beautiful in teen movies is uncanny. This transformation has also been assisted by wearing different coloured jeans, different shoes and wearing a bracelet. I also think the oddness of the watering can floating amongst the print is charming. It's like it wants to be a spaceship and fly in space but it can't because it's just a simple watering can.
I attended Christopher Esber's show which was a-mazing. For the runway, he had installed mirrors on the catwalk, to create a trippy effect that made it seem like there was 30 models on the runway when there was only three. What wasn't amazing was my camera battery failing after the first three looks. The few images I managed to capture were really bad quality so to compensate, I will post the amusing reflections the mirrors provided of the audience. I'm sure no one paid attention to those reflections so enjoy!
- I definitely feel that she is taking inspiration from the Expressionist painting "The Scream" by Edvard Munch. Would have pulled it off but lacks consistency throughout due to her decapitated leg and hand which lets this look down.
- The One Who Must Not Be Named and Professor Quirrell took a break from terrorising the Wizarding world to join the A row stars at this collection.
- This girl just needs a nose job. ASAP
- Can the real Tim Blanks please stand up?
Jenny Kee's first solo exhibition at fashion week since 1981 had everyone impressed with the quality and style of her presentation. At first I wondered what they were going to do with some scarves but trust Anna Plunkett and Luke Sales, designers of Romance was Born to style a crazy, out of this world exhibition that was still able to tell a story. Not following the pastel trend, her vibrant, Australian inspired designs and patterns were jam packed full of bright, bold, electric colour. The exhibition also showcased ten archival looks from her previous work between 1980 and 2010, including pieces used in Kaiser Karl's first collection at Channel in 1983. This exhibition wins the best styling award for me.
The amazing Carl Kapp was another highly anticipated show of the day and it did not disappoint. The collection began with a soundtrack of a racing car that soon crashed, the collection however was far from being a wreck. With the amazing draping and the way the fabric floated I wouldn't blame anyone who thought the models were ethereal goddesses.
I love when designers are concious of a world with bigger problems then what's on trend. Roopa's debuts her latest ethical trade luxury resort wear collection for the first time at MBFWA. With 20% of all profits from each garment going back into the artists community, this collection gets a thumbs up from me.
