the other side

28/09/2009, fashion week, new zealand







(Forever 21 necklace, vintage tshirt and coin clutch, Deadly Ponies bracelet, Forever 21 shorts, Topshop suede ankle boots)

Patiently waiting for the Stolen Girlfriends Club show to begin. I ended up wearing this there by accident because I didn’t have time to paw through my mile high stack of clothing at the Westin…though now that I think about it my bedraggled attempt at glamour probably made more sense at night anyway. Somehow I manage to be late for everything even when relying (accurately!) on everything to be late anyway. The show taking place both after dark and later on in the week made its different location really refreshing…after running through the rain we all crammed into a musty humid room and milled about happily before being handed jars of wine and slowly making our way upstairs to where the runway was set up. Beautiful beautiful show, ran around some more, chatted with the lovely Melinda and Zara from No magazine, changed into a dress I had stuffed into Colin’s backpack, did a massive group order at the McDonald’s drive-thru, and headed to the afterparty. Thank youu to Marc Dan and Luke for being such rad hosts and for the best dinner the next night. NZ seafood is freakishly good.

(Claude Maus dress, vintage fishnet cardigan, Deadly Ponies belt strap bag, Ashish for Topshop boots)

From the first day of NZFW…I wore a dress I picked up with Anna at Black Box here in Auckland. I love the longer hem in the back and this sort of half cutout it has going on in the back. I started the day off early with an interview for a TV station and spent the rest of the day checking out shows and running back and forth from the Westin to the tents and eventually changing when the winds suddenly reached gale force.

We’re off to enjoy a few free hours before checking out the Pamela Anderson/Richie Rich collaboration show A*Muse tonight. Should be exciting!

stolen girlfriends club

24/09/2009, fashion week, new zealand, runway




























The Stolen Girlfriends Club show last night was absolutely insane, this is exactly how I want to dress right now. Blankety Navajo jackets, chunky knit dresses, fringed capes, studded collars, variegated stripes..so good. Imagine my surprise when Marc Moore (who played a huge role in getting me down here to New Zealand, thank you!!!) named a piece after me – the zippered lace bell trousers that he showed me at their HQ that morning. The collection made me want to move into a mountain cave, herd sheep, and wrap everything up with jute. Love love love SGC.

metal party

22/09/2009, fashion week, nyc










(Rumi for RVCA dress, Topshop boots)

Hanging with Gala, Pelayo, and Angela at the Metal magazine party in New York last last weekend. Really wasn’t that long ago but is quite literally half a world away now. I wore the dress I designed for RVCA…the Machinery dress, which was inspired by the iconic (well, for me) Milla Jovovich in The Fifth Element. I love the idea of strips of fabric lashing across sections but also wanted to create an effect that the sleeve was almost detached from the body. The material is quite thick to the point of being cozy and it’ll be available in nude and black as well…these photos are making me miss NYC, it was quite the blogger-fest and it was so much fun attaching personalities to formerly nebulous internet people.

twentysevennames

22/09/2009, fashion week, new zealand, runway












Fresh off of the Twentysevennames runway this afternoon here in New Zealand, the perfect hard/soft and dark/light looks. The past couple days have been a blur of fun, from a photo shoot with No magazine to talk show interviews to parties to the official first shows all day today. The designers here are so damn good and I’m going to be blogging all week both here and from Front Row Diary so be sure to check out the coverage there too.
