FOUREYES ON THIS WEEK #4
CHIN – This week has been full of highs and this jacket is one of them. Yes, we managed to fit in a day of shopping on Friday. From past experience, I’m usually spoilt for choice in Sydney stores. This time however, I couldn’t find anything I really liked – I’m thinking most probably because of post-fashion week fatigue. Then this DKNY jacket came along with all its black, neoprene, quilted, bomber goodness. It was on sale so really it was a no-brainer.
DANNY – There were a lot of spiritual high points to choose from this week with a hugely fun, busy, exhausting time over in Sydney for MBFWA. But I’ve chosen to focus on a purely materialistic one. I bought these glasses. I’ve wanted them for over a year since I saw them on Gary Oldman in Prada’s campaign shots. I spotted them in Sunglass Hut a year ago but couldn’t justify the price at the time, so when I saw them there again on sale I decided that was fate (a convenient rationale for spending money that I use frequently). Also, I negotiated a bigger discount than the sticker price. Double-fate.
MINO – I had one of the most amazing weeks of my life this week! I attended Fashion Week Australia with 5 of my best friends (the other 3 eyes, photographer Sam Lee and his hilarious wife Dana) but I also got to show the world some pieces I had designed in collaboration with Vanessa Kim for Daniel K. The morning of the show, I was up at 3am as the model call time was 6am at the venue. As usual, it was madness backstage, especially given the fact that there were 7 other designers showing in the New Generation show. The moment the first model stepped out onto the runway, there was a sense of relief that it was all going to be OK! I did think that I would feel a bit calmer after the show but the adrenaline was still pumping and I met a bunch of the buyers that gave me some amazing feedback about the show after which, the boys and I popped a few bottles of Champagne to celebrate. I learned so much from the whole process of design, manufacturing and show preparation and I am so grateful that Vanessa from Daniel K gave me this opportunity and I am so excited about what’s to come…what that might be, I am not sure right now but I can’t wait.
