Show: Happy Friday The 13th! (I couldn’t wait until Halloween to show you this *fantastically kitsch* sequinned vest I found in an op shop, so this was the next best date I could come up with…)
Tell: Glasses from op shop, earrings from Japan, Tatty Devine necklace, Kay Attali shirt from op shop, Versace men’s shirt from op shop, ‘Fashion Fantasy: Trick or Treat’ novelty vest from op shop, Saba skirt, stockings from Japan, SpinDance petticoat underneath, vintage boots from op shop.
Share: A day meeting up with some *lovely* people from the fashion side of things…
First up, I met with Kelly Elkin, who runs her own ethical fashion label, ALAS (specialising in sleepwear). Kelly is also heavily involved with ethical fashion community-building, especially here in Sydney (you can see more at her blog, Transparent Seams). She’s full of ideas, and I’m really looking forward to understanding this space better over the coming months. Go sustainable fashion!
Then I met up with Sydney/Melbourne/Tokyo stylist, Hayley Hughes. It was great to be able to hear her stories and insights into the broader Australian fashion scene. Plus, I’m a long-time fan of her own blog (Fashion Hayley), so it was *fun* to just catch up and get to know her ‘In Real Life’ (we met briefly at Penthouse Mouse in March this year). And, as the Sydney Outfit works towards our very own model of The Social Studio, I’m hoping to have Hayley and her very special skills involved.
