burberry catwalks go 3D

at 4pm on tuesday burberry will be holding the first ever 3d catwalk, live from london fashion week. really quite incredible.


We are very excited to announce that we are hosting the first ever truly global fashion show. We will be simultaneously live streaming our show using 3D technology directly to New York, Paris, Dubai, Tokyo and LA. This unprecedented event will enable people to experience the energy and atmosphere of this show from around the world. 3D technology will bring our global audience into the London show space allowing them to see the colours and fabrics, to hear the music and to be a part of that moment when it all finally comes together.”

i'm not abandoning blogspot! but i now also have a tumblr page.
it's going to be a similar feel to this, juts giving a different layout and feel a go.

back from paris...

few of the best bits...

pompidou....lovely editorial pieces shown at this excellent contemporary gallery.these pieces show great use of colour, space and layout, very inspirational. definitely one of my favourite visits.

shabby chic style restaurantat musée baccarat, beautiful crystal museum which exuded class and style.

oh hi there wall of magazines...a good forty minutes (at least) was spent in the gift shop of palais de tokyo. fabulous shop with huge selection of art, fashion, graphics and architecture books.
musée d'orsay...stunning gallery in an old train station holding beautiful work from the greats including van gogh, renoir and derain.

fashion...couldn't go to paris and not stop in at colette. an all round lifestyle shop in stylish the end of paris. gadgets, magazines, books and clothes for both men and women. amazing use of space and design. lovely.

however, the real fashion treat for me was at printemps. with an alice and wonderland theme to the department store it had a magical feel to it in preparation for the film coming out in march. a row of the windows were themed, all mannequins with rabbit masks and alice in wonderland inspired clothing. however the absolute highlight was the tea party in the middle of the store. have tea and cake in the proper setting. giant teapots hanging from the ceiling, and mad hatter-esque checkered floor. amazing.

pretty pastels

mario testino-always a fashion favourite. this footage for vogue march 2010 is beautiful. tints of corals mixed in with curls, gems, bows, frills, puffs, pastels and lace. the most glamorous doll i've ever seen. music 'under the stars' by ellie goulding sets it off perfectly. brilliant bit of viral advertising on vogues behalf.

but this one here untitled (great idea) by maison martin margiela €55-100 from collette in paris

tarina tarantino

when i was in LA over the summer i stayed in a hostel on melrose and opposite was this store, tarina tarintino. kitch, sometimes tacky, but mostly all beautiful in some way, the jewelry really stood out.
i want this alice and wonderland, white rabbit ring please from the queen alice collection! $55 in case you were thinking of getting it for me...

all wrapped up

trying to work and am freezing..and blog distracted.
wrapped up in my favourite item. quilt from abc carpet and home. lugged it all the way back from new york nearly a year ago. was half price which i found out at the til...fate.
keeps me warm in winter. love. it.

Photobucket all kicked off

i don't usually blog about uni work, but this is a one off... so as part of my course we work with real brands and look at real problems. at the start of this term, the shoe brand kickers came in and asked for our help.
our aim? to get a trend setter, give them a pair of shoes..specifically the KICK HI...they wear the shoes, we track them and see what people think of them.
so our legend, matt box has been wearing his black quilted boots and on our request, has customized them too.
what do you think??

..quite the stud huh?!


handy work

these definitely caught my eye. so simple yet effective. by artist
