I've had a bit of a girl crush on this chick for a while. Her style, work ethic and effortless cool is something anyone would find appealing. I can't remember where I first came across her, If I had to guess probably on my Instagram feeds.
She directs, designs, Djs models etc pretty much just an overall creative boss lady.
She is the first female to have designed for the Jordan brand and has her own label called Violette where she's collabed with Puma and G -Shock.
What I love about her style is she switches it up from street to chic which is similar to how I dress too.
I've even got told I look like her (I don't think so) by crew that know her that have come into work from the states. Pretty much best compliment ever.
In a world full of ladies trying to get insta famous by being groupies and taking the kim k route, its refreshing to see females in the business work hard at their craft and succeed in their field.
I love seeing celebrities rocking Aussie labels. Last night Kylie Jenner was seen wearing Zhivago again. I think she first wore the brand during Christmas last year. This isn't the first time she's been seeing wearing our favourite Aussie brands. I also remember her wearing Michael Lo Sordo during Kim Kardashian's wedding week. Despite her private life and choices I do think her style is on point. Who cares if she has lip fillers dating someone a little too older for her. Let the girl live.
Micahel Lo Sordo
Kimmy was caught wearing them at Disneyland, Yeezy wore them to the CFDA awards and Kylie just grammed these babies. This family's marketing tactics beyond powerful.
So we all know the commotion the first Yeezy Boost caused. If you were a fan like me you were probably at the 7am private screening that was announced 24 hours before his runway debut. Loved that he bought NYFW to the world like that. Only Yeezy. So here I'm 7 days from the release giddy with excitement. I've been on a hunt for a pair of low grey sneakers for a while and when I heard that these bad boys were going to be released soon it was like it was fate.
I'm still sussing to see if they will have it in my size since I have small ass feet and mens size's wont cater to my needs. I do however have info for my melbourne peeps on where to go to get them. So far Footlocker & Sneakerboy have stated they will be selling them. Hasn't been said if it will be in raffle form or traditional line up form. If its line up and I know they'll be stocking my size best be known I'll be there. Maybe I'll get snapchat for the blog so you guys can come with me and keep me entertained on the wait :D
Will be updating posts soon as I hear more info from stores so keep an eye out !!!
Accounts to follow :
Footlocker did first come fist serve through email
Sneakerboy, Adidas & Marais All are doing raffle
Incu & Up There are doing first come first serve at their CBD stores. Lines have already started.
Probably one of the dopest homages I've ever seen !!! If you're a pac fan like me you can tell all the iconic photos rnb songrtress Jhene recreated in honor of what would of been Tupac's 44th Birthday. I haven't seen this chick live yet buy have been a fan since "3:14am" and even have her in my 2000 mixes with B2K members. I missed yet at OVO fest as she was on really early and we were stuck in the lines but she is coming to Soulfest in Melbourne later this year :D
Bring It ON !!!
I love her quirky style and attitude...Oh that voice is just so mesmerising. Think MJ found the perfect face of its brand.
So Last night I went to this amazing event. You may of seen my posts about the documentary The True Cost. You may of not. But the important thing is the elephant of the room in the fashion world is being exploited. The message is getting louder and louder. and Hopefully one day these large corporations will think twice before cutting corners and putting peoples lives at risk just for clothes.
We all love a good bargain but at what cost? Would you still spend $15 on that top knowing that factory workers could of been injured or died through the process. People are against fur because it kills animals but are they against top brands who hold equal responsibility for the killings of humans as the factories?
Ever since the Rana Plaza factory disaster people have been more conscious of fashion and this Documentary explores. As a Bangladeshi myself the topic really hits home. I remember as people were trying to read the subtitles my friend and I were already in tears from a Bangladeshi workers story throughout the doco.
So traditionally fashion has seasons. Autumn/Winter & Spring/Summer. All was well in fashion land. But when Fast Fashion entered the demand for everything rose and the dodgy. Retailers like H&M and Zara had new things every week and people kept getting hungry and greedy for more. "They make us think that we're rich because we can buy more".
I think with the internet too its so easy to check for new items so pressure is on for businesses.
Fashion is destroying is the Earth. The waste of what is takes to make these garments in 3rd world countries is polluting our rivers, social and health. In the doco they mention how the seed business is a thing and that theres artificial cotton seeds (which are hella expensive) to match the demand of the clothes made.
Workers get beaten and hurt if they say anything and have no unions. So it means low pay, no maternity leave, no pension. The lower your prices the more business you'll get. Thats why a lot of companies have been going to Bangladesh.
The brands in Australia and around the world don't own any of the factories in these countries therefore argue that it's not their 'responsibility' that employees in their factories are in harsh working conditions. I know its Bangladesh government's fault too but you would think a country like Australia who is well developed would not take cheap short cuts like this all in the names of fashion.
Oh and you think when you throw out your clothes its getting used by charities etc straight away? Guess again. As tons of stuff gets donated some get shipped to other countries in bulk where people buy and sell as another market. Like thrifting on a way way bigger scale.
So much waste. I really applaud the ABSA for holding the event and will be looking to explore and see what I can do from my end to help bring some justice to the people of Bangladesh and to make sure Australian Brands like Just Jeans stop being unethical.
