DILIGENCE TO ART

W…O…W

 

Rick Genest is Formichetti’s Muse for his Mugler debut. A living, breathing, walking piece of art. Quite rightly so, after having his whole body tattooed to resemble a skeleton. The ink is done so beautifully – credit to the artist!

SOMETHING TO GET EXCITED ABOUT

If this kind of fashion film is what we can expect from the future of menswear, then I could not be more electrified if I tried…

GONE GAGA FOR NICOLA

For a fashion kid trying to pursue journalism, its pretty embarrassing to say I’m lost for words. However Formichetti has rendered me speechless. Words cannot express how much I LOVE this campaign for Mugler, with Mr…no sorry….Sir Formichetti at the head of the creative realm…

Beyond awesome surrealism. Any aspiring stylist who doesn’t appreciate this image are kidding no one

JACKING IN THE HOUSE OF CHICAGO

We may have just launched ourselves (some of us stumbled) into a new year, but I think I can safely say it’s not the noughties in my head. I am currently living in a constant soundtrack to the New York gay DISCO scene.

Current genres on the SJM playlist include Chicago house, Italo-Electro Disco and straight up 70’s Disco. Actually, I have no idea why we all get bogged down with these genre specifics… who cares? All that matters is I am dancing down the street in a Travolta stylie with a MAJOR cheese attack grin – What a way to start a new year!

How could you not give a good old sweep…clap….skip when you hear this track!

Like a sweet little granny giving you a hot toddy on a snowy day, disco has been warming my soul!

I’ll leave you with this new video from Hercules and Love Affair….you might find me dressing like this as the Androgynous early nineties club style is taking over my shopping life. ENJOY xxx

RETAIL RACE TRACK

So, here is how the story goes…..

After the drama of June where all that occupied my mind was needles and bobbins, I found myself thrust into the harsh and somewhat cold realisation of July. I was worse than penniless. It was job time! Too lazy to bother signing on, my saviour came in the form of ahhhaaaaaa….

Topman Blackpool

My first step into the ‘real world’ is as a… Sales Assistant wwwoooooppaaaah! Throwing out the retail shapes to all the fashion loving college kids – ,”whats that I hear you say? You want some of them skinny carrots everyone loves? Why not, come this way!”

I was with the lovely Blackpool team for 3 months before I was sent to help on a store setup in Swansea, where I met beautiful boys…

And crrrazy girls. Here I realised that, actually, these retail giants could offer me more than just a stopgap job. Sooooo 4 weeks later some poor manager let himself in for a treat by hiring ME, as Creative Visual Merchandiser for their store in the City of Oasis loving, shaggy haired, chelsea boot wearing MANCHESTAAAAAAA

ON IT LIKE A CAR BONNET

New Year New Start and all that shizzle

I have been completely useless and neglected my blog child lately.  So like a proverbial spring clean I have decided to post all relevance to my graduate collection in one day.  Feeling refreshed and ready for 2011 I am now ready to move on and stop basking in the glory of graduation…

Here starts the first day of my non student life
