Blow Up

Blow UpBlow Up Directed by Antonioni, was a film loosely based on the life of David Bailey and was one of the first films I ever saw relating to the Fashion Biz. In fact, it was the first time I was ever exposed to fashion from the vantage point of a photographer. It was a real eye opener for me in many respects and may have subconsciously effected how I perceived myself within the “BIZ”. Things have certainly changed however. If I treated models the way David Hemmings did, the chances of my getting models in the future would be severely diminished and I would probably get a swift kick in the Balls! I really love the set designs, the clothing and the make-up & hair. Some serious experimentation was going on here and the creative spirit of the 60’s time frame is so well expressed throughout the film. Also, check out the music, tantalizingly tacky with a scene of the Yardbirds doing a gig at a club in London. Both Sarah Miles and Vanessa Redgrave are absolutely wonderful in this cult film. There is also an appearance with model Veruschka von Lehndorff.

FASHION WEEK DIARY: DKNY Takes Over Taxi’s @dkny

FASHION WEEK DIARY: DKNY Takes Over Taxis @dkny

Almost slipped and killed myself while chasing this taxi in an attempt to grab this photo. It’s the new DKNY taxi toppers and they are literally filled with flowers. Such a great way to brighten up my choice of transportation.



We’re so happy Corey’s back home and we’re all out for fashion week. The Fashion Indie Family is back together!!!

SIDENOTE: I don’t know what the fuck my hair is doing. It’s like it’s trying to escape from under my hat. Might need to clean my hat asap….



Last night, Kirby’s feeties were killing her, so I attempting giving her a piggyback ride. Then god shone upon us his most illustrious light and we were blessed with a baby stroller that smelled like it belonged to parents with a serious pot addiction. So, we stole it and had Kirby jump in. That’s right it’s Kirby… in a baby stroller.

Diesel, we’ve taken your advice to heart and are getting 100% stupid.


BACKSTAGE: Park Choon Moo Fall 2010

I seriously cannot wait to see what Choon Moo (we’re gonna call her Moo) does in the future!  Check out a few of our photos from backstage and the show!

RUNWAY: Rag & Bone Fall 2010 Menswear

RUNWAY: Rag & Bone Fall 2010 Menswear Marcus Wainwright and David Neville followed the same theme for their Rag & Bone Fall 2010 collection: rugged. Unlike the womenswear collection, which was inspired by the early 20th century expeditions to Mt. Everest, the menswear collection was a recreation of World War I soldiers. Think dark, natural and resilient layering and you’ve got Rag & Bone Fall 2010 down to a science!


RUNWAY: Jason Wu Fall 2010 Womenswear

RUNWAY: Jason Wu Fall 2010 Womenswear Jason Wu briefly strayed away from his famous princess dresses to try his hand at some foxy, more masculine designs and outerwear. With a handful of tomboy looks, including a rubberized decal overcoat and a pair of slouchy trousers, Wu was able to break his Michelle Obama mold and try something new. But that’s not to say that the youngin’ didn’t give the audience exactly what they expected. Baby doll dresses, lacy numbers and structural gowns were included in the collection, bring Wu back to his fashion roots.


RUNWAY: Neil Barrett Fall 2010 Womenswear and Menswear

RUNWAY: Neil Barrett Fall 2010 Womenswear and Menswear RUNWAY: Neil Barrett Fall 2010 Womenswear and Menswear Neil Barrett was all about the options for his Fall 2010 collection, which comprised both womenswear and menswear pieces. From color-blocked suits and peacoats to leather jackets and gothic lapels, Barrett has every piece a dark dresser could ask for. In a variety of fabrics and textures, Barrett’s collection is tailored, fitted and very much a classic interpretation of gothic wear.


RUNWAY: Cynthia Rowley Fall 2010 Womenswear

RUNWAY: Cynthia Rowley Fall 2010 Womenswear It was a “chic monster-girl collection” for Cynthia Rowley this season, a landmark collection for the lady who usually airs on the conservative, simple and safe side. Fur and feather comprised the majority of Rowley’s Fall 2010 collection, alongside puffy coats, patterned silk dresses and some gorgeous ruched dresses. The show itself was a masterpiece: a beautiful setup at New York’s Gotham Hall, risky and artful designs, a live rumbling band and the feel of the forest. We’re glad to see Rowley taking some leaps!


RUNWAY: Gilded Age Fall 2010 Menswear

RUNWAY: Gilded Age Fall 2010 Menswear Gilded Age designer Stefan Miljanic aired on the predominately preppy and classic side for his Fall 2010 menswear collection. Having designed for Banana Republic, Calvin Klein, and Abercrombie & Fitch, Miljanic showed a variety of trenches, suits, plaid shirts, scarves, ties and leather jackets to dress the rugged English man. Nothing terribly new to the fashion world, but some very nice styling.


RUNWAY: Doo.Ri Fall 2010 Womenswear

RUNWAY: Doo.Ri Fall 2010 Womenswear Doo.Ri Fall 2010 was a bit of a disappointment in comparison to previous collections. Doo-Ri Chung started off strong with two gorgeous navy structural pieces (a suit and belted dress) with draped black netting detail. But things went awry when Chung dabbled with bright red, sequins and several musky patterns. Interspersed with a few good looks, namely the rust leather jacket and draped silk dress, the collection had a few memorable pieces, but generally speaking, Chung was a bit off this season.


Kirby and Cole Together At Last

Kirby and Cole Together At Last As many of you know, I have a thing for the tall, lanky and pretty male models. But in my books, Cole Mohr is at the very top of my lust list. Lucky for me, Cole opened Odyn Vovk’s Fall 2010 show on Crosby Street in Soho last night. Seeing that this is the first time I saw Cole in the flesh, I left a puddle. Giddy as a school girl. Kid in a candy store. After the show, my friends from Metal Magazine and I loitered a bit. What an excellent idea that was. Met Cole. He bummed a smoke from my friend Omi. Snagged a photo together. He touched my shoulder and told me I had a “sick” name. We’re getting married. K. Bye.

NOTE: I am not one to get star-struck easily. Last night was a major exception.
