Factory by Erik Hart

Personal favourite at the moment the 2011 Fall collection; Factory by Erik Hart. They are simplistic, well cut, minimalist and sophisticated designs and  best of all incredibly affordable.

Enough to make your heart skip a beat..

You can buy it here at Oak NYC.

MBFF Emerging Designer Show.

Snaps from the MBFF emerging designer show. More impressive then the graduate show and exciting for Brisbane as some of the designs will be available in store soon.  My personal favourite from the show was the Soot. Collection.

MBFF Graduate of the Year.

Snap shots of the MBFF Westfield Chermside Graduate of the Year show from last weeks events. I have to admit out of all the years I have been attending I was a little disappointed this year. Whilst some of the collection were excellent (the girl who won deserved to) there were others that were ordinary and a little bit boring. What once was unique and innovative is now becoming mainstream and almost typical of graduate/emerging designers. I was really hoping to see something different this year. Interestingly enough, two of the finalists were also from project runway. 

For more pictures from the evening (I took an obscene amount) please go check them out on my facebook page here

I held my breath as I watched the models walk down the run way in these shoes. Can anyone explain to me why they have used sticky tape around the middle of them ? My theory was was possibly for extra support ? Beats me as to why the designer picked them if that's the case.

Just going to take this opportunity for a bit of self gloating. As you know I attended YEDP last week but this morning I had the pleasure of finding some of my photographing from the evening on I'm just a little fish in a big pond so I am rather proud of this. All my thanks must again go to felix & slink for so kindly inviting me to attend the event.

Make sure you all check out the actual link to see more photos from the night and also the video here which is also fantastic!

Can't remember your anniversary and want some special someone to casually remind you forever?

How about wearing your special digits in 14k gold.

Also a great idea for milestone birthday's... shame I won't be having another one for a while.

YEDP Wrap up 2011.

At the Copa, Copacabana
Music and passion were always the fashionAt the Copa....they fell in love

On Tuesday the 16th of August I had the greatest pleasure of attending the felix & slink 2011 YEDP party. I have been anticipating this event all year and put it on my calendar as a "must attend" social event. This is the second year that felix & slink have hosted the event and as an attendee at last years launch, can I just say that the event went from mediocre to mind blowing and one giant leap. Initial impressions as I walked out onto the balcony of the Queensland State Library was that I had been teleported from Brisbane to New York. This gig was smart, sophisticated and stylish and I had to resist all temptations to break out into a Cha-Cha mid -conversation with people. 

This event was the perfect opportunity to  rub shoulders with some of Brisbane's best in the industry, and its not every day that opportunities like this arise. Congratulations felix & slink for paving the way for Brisbane. I challenge any agency, model management company or local fashion label to throw a soiree like this one, because Brisbane needs it .... badly!

Colour Your Soul.

I think we are all ready to ditch the layers, shivers and goosebumps all that accompany our (mild) winter season and excite ourselves because we are nearing warmer months. The mornings are still cold but the days are full of sunshine and warmth. Evidently, seasonal trends are getting brighter and gone is all A/W 11 winter stock from our stores (or at least down to clearance). Expect only to see the very brightest  this Spring/Summer as colour blocking continues and we fall in love with fun hues such as reds,pinks and all things neon!

This editorial ought to get you all in the mood....
