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.

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.
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.
One of the best parts about New York – extreme weather changes in a concentrated period of time. I got to use almost everything I packed, though this could also be attributed to changing three times a day. Who am I kidding, I change at least that often when I’m at home too. The difference actually being that it’s harder to get sick of your clothes when different ones are always spontaneously becoming appropriate.
Bumble and Bumble was kind enough to invite me to their salon in the Meatpacking District to get my hair styled. Normally I’d be more wary but I’m into the beachy look they’re known for…I really love the smoother style they created and tried to pay attention to how it was done but somewhere around the tenth finger curl/flip/brush-through I got confused. Either way I left feeling liking a better version of myself so thank you to the Bumble and Bumble team.
I still have a bunch of NY pictures to post but Colin and I are leaving for New Zealand fashion week in a couple hours, can’t wait for the adventures that await, though I’m kind of nervous too. It’ll be my first time in the southern hemisphere, the furthest I’ve been is Hong Kong..
