It's been 30 years since the inception of Fashion Quarterly. That's certainly an achievement in this country considering the amount of publications we have circulating throughout. The celebrations take place tonight, and i must say the invitation was a highlight.
Limited edition Deadly Ponies leather cuffs! What a way to save the planet. No more poorly printed pieces of card with where and when. This is something people will wear and wont eventually end up in a landfill. Now I'm hardly an environmentalist, i simply appreciate things that are stylish and well thought out, as well as being in collaboration with a great kiwi label.
The reversed pictures above show the cuff, as well as my incapability to figure out the feature that switches photobooth around. Sigh.

I've recently been spending my evenings sitting in front of my computer listening to the audio book of Bill Bryson's 'A Short History on Nearly Everything". Now i must admit that the last 1.4 hours of audio i have absorbed so far have left me feeling completely inadequate as a human being, for reasons that are even beyond me. For example, i cannot yet grasp the concept of the beginning of the universe. Its something i simply cant even imagine. Bill Bryson tries to convey the idea that a billionth of a proton was something that existed amongst nothing. Nothing meaning no space. Nothing. Like not even space with nothing in it. Think of emptiness and then take it away. And that's what you're left with. That, and a proton which is responsible for the 'Big Bang' and is about a millionth of an atom, created space (or the universe), which is constantly and infinitely expanding into nothingness. So! I wonder, what would all this look like? The sun, the planets and their moons, the billions or so floating rocks, comets and other mysilanions drifting particles which are responsible for the constant expantion of the bending universe as we know it. Christopher Kane has an idea. And i want to wear it.
Sure the Nubula print has been done before, but never before have i wanted to wear a whole collection dedicated to it. The structure, the digital imaging the begining of the universe! To die for!
Sure we may be insignificant human beings in the grand scheme of things - but for now, i would be content in knowing i was wearing something that looked so important.

It was back to Woodhill forest today! Sam Montgomery from Free Hamburger magazine shot the Two Hands Tattoo campaign today along with myself, the beautiful Lily Montana and Derya Parlak, Hannah Wilson on makeup, and customers of Two Hands Tattoo, Sid and Kandar were our male models for the day. The theme was Pagan. Which i knew little about until i was corrected when i called them Mormons.
Stefan from Two Hands drew the tattoos on the girls as a new concept for the campaign. Look out for the shoot next month!
