Road Trip Days

The Australian summer is almost over and I’m puzzled as to why I didn’t go on a roadtrip this summer, either with my paramour or my friends as had been planned. The long open road, a car packed to the brim and tunes you wish you didn’t know and not to mention roadtrip fashion. Your baggy tee paired with Levi’s 501’s cut-off shorts and topped with some nice aviators. I can smell the kilometres already. Speaking of Levi’s, I have been informed that they have an ultimate “Roadworthy” package to give away via Facebook.

So if I were you I would gather all my friends for a last minute road trip before Uni starts, as all of this is up for grabs for ONE lucky roadtripper!

Esbit Spirit Stove Set – for cooking up tasty treats in the outback
Olympus 12MP Camera – snap your mates skinny-dipping and get the photos straight on Facebook
Mexican Queen Hammock – the best way to chill out
Garmin 3.5 Sat Nav – because even the most hardened travellers have a habit of getting lost
iPod Nano 8GB, plus Sony iPod and iPhone Docking Clock Radio – playing some sweet tunes as you clock up the Kms
Fender Acoustic Guitar – when you’re sick of listening to other people’s music and want to play your own
Esky 251 Cooler – the granddaddy of all Esky’s and your mobile fridge
Squeak Sleeping Bag – be sure to check for spiders before entering
Bob Dylan Signature Series Harmonica – do I even need to explain why this is awesome?

All you have to do to enter is upload your best road trip images to the Levi’s® Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/levisANZ

Did I hear someone say road trip?

Ode to Fashion

An ode to fashion that entailed metamorphoses, evolution and futuristic silhouette was made tonight. Luckily enough to be invited to the event, my friend Nico Sol and I were taken aback by the 3D print found on the garments fitted on mannequins that manned the space a la art exhibition. The print consisted of cropped butterfly wing details in turquoise and lilac where they elegantly extended a breast or elongated a legging.

Held at the ever-so-trendy District 01 in Darlinghurst, Mother Father PR should be congratulated on the atmosphere they created for the event. Ultraviolet-esque light bulbs suspended from the ceiling in various places (quite the conversation starter),a neon light art installation in the corner and not to mention the 3D glasses ensured that tonight fashion was interactive. A refreshing experience!

As with all collection launches: a party atmosphere persists and what’s a Dandy Boy to do but have a glass, get his picture taken and mingle with Sydney’s fashion peeps. Nico and I were lucky enough to have our pictures taken by quite a few bloggers, so much so that it was suddenly embarrassing for a while because a lot of people were staring. Nevertheless the experience lead to some networking which was my aim for tonight, so hurrah! For now enjoy the happy snaps…

Story of A Boy and A Girl

I’ve been really busy the past two weeks organising shoots, finding a fashion job, going to meetings and talking to PR people. It’s all been really hectic and on top of that I’m organising my trip to Stockholm-Berlin-NYC come August. Trying to get to Stockholm Fashion Week and NYFW S/S12. In between all of that I finally got access to images that I shot with the talented Sam Lim last October, the re-touchers in Thailand finally sent them over. Here is a sneak peak at a few shots that I like.

Leather Lust

As of late, my shoe lust has begun to take on Imelda Marcos proportions. I’m constantly finding myself wanting more shoes. Maybe my life is finally imitating my art? Nevertheless my eyes are currently feasting on a beautifully made leather pair of sneakers. Leather is everywhere at the moment. As it is NYFW, leather has been seen on the runway from Alexander Wang to Cynthia Steffe and now the fabric that’s got everyone’s behind (okay lame leather pun) is waiting to adorn feet. Hopefully mine! Also hailing from New York City, leather motorcycle jacket label, Schott has collaborated with Converse and created these beautiful things…

Yummmmmmmmmmmmmm! They will be available at Espionage (22-26 Goulburn Street, Sydney) this Saturday 19th of February. For $200 and  the exclusivity of 12 pairs only!
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I want them so bad and in that colour!!!!!!!

Dandy 001: The Victorian Girl

If you were following my Twitter feed today you would have noticed that Dandy was busy on set. Yes today was the first shoot of my freelance styling career! With only three days notice to source for fashion I was quite proud of my achievement and what I was able to create at such notice. The brief required a slight Victorian touch which I admit was challenging but I managed to incorporate the style into contemporary styling. Enjoy the behind-the-scenes snaps.
