Fashion week!

I MADE IT!!!

I actually managed to attend fashion week in February, never would I miss this especially since I missed LCM in January.

The only problem was that with a week left for fashion week I completely forgot, and hadn’t planned any outfits, but I quickly realised that the outfit I wore didn’t matter, I was there to hang out with friends and make new ones.

The first day I went very simple (all black), at first I was quite nervous but I quickly got into the flow of things and started to bump into people I knew from the previous year.

For the first time ever I managed to get into shows!! I actually managed to do at least one/two shows a day in fact; I honestly still can’t believe it.

Day two was the day of the #Skwad, since it was Saturday this was by far the busiest day and probably the most fun! It was nice to just be surrounded by creative people, who love fashion and to play around with clothing it was truly inspiring.

The third day I done all black (again!), it was a quieter day compared to Saturday but it was still nice as some people still came over just to say hi and hit a few shows.

Monday was like the deadest day! Haha you could slowly see the crowds dwindling down, for most part of the day I just wandered around, once it hit around 4pm it got busier and more people showed up.

Tuesday was by far the most pointless day, and this point no-one was there and in fact me and my friend need up going to a gallery and just had a regular day out!

So obviously I went to fashion week in September!! But I only went for two days (Saturday & Sunday) but it was suuuppperrr fun! Met a lot of amazing people and got to just slay the day away for the weekend.

For the first day I decided to keep it quite monochrome and simple, but I still wanted to make a statement so I wore a mesh white top and a wide brimmed fedora, just to tszuj things up a bit.

Jacket: Rokit Vintage (+ personalised)   Jeans: H&M

For the second day I wanted to dial it back since the first day was quite a strong “I have arrived” look I wanted to soften it and do light colours to contrast the previous day!

So I decided to just wear some distressed jeans, a white t-shirt and this denim jacket that me and my friend personalised (she done the embroidery) it was something really chill, but once people noticed the back of the jacket they loved it!

Overall it was a fun experience and I’m very happy that I went, I am hoping I can visit them with more frequency and make some more fashion friends!!

late night read…

This is a Modern Matter Magazine, before buying this copy I had never heard of them before.

I was actually looking for inspiration for my art project and decided to go to one of my favorite magazine stores in Soho, I tend to go there because I just love discovering new magazine and love finding “lost treasures”

Even though this magazine was encased in a plastic bag meaning, I couldn’t flip through it to see what was inside, I felt the cover was strong and macabre enough to help me out with my project, especially since the quote on the cover reads “Someone wants to cut a hole in you and fuck you through it, Buddy”.

I love the look and feel of this magazine, it feels strong, expensive and dangerous and I love that!!

I love the imagery inside and how it is unapologetically what it is, they stand by what they put inside it, and aren’t worried with making it “pretty”, its through provoking and makes you think twice about certain situations… definitely an interesting read.

I have had these sunglasses for quite a while, but when I first got them I felt that the frame was too small for my face/head (I’ve got a big head! hahah) so there was a long period of time where I just didn’t wear them, but since starting this “fashion blogging” I’ve found myself using them with increasing frequency, I love how the lens is mirrored and that the colour of the frame is quite neutral so that makes it easy to match with practically any outfit!

I believe that they are a quick simple way of giving your outfit some attitude and fierceness! Plus they are quite cheap!!
