As part of Melbourne Spring Fashion Week I saw an inspirational documentary, ‘Paul Smith – Gentleman Designer.’ With no formal training in fashion, British designer, Paul Smith now runs a fashion empire where he creates classic clothes with a twist. The audience was treated to behind the scenes vision of him in his office stuffed full of quirky paraphernalia and to his vivacious personality that was infectious even through the screen. My favourite scene was of Smith grabbing a fox tail and running around in a meeting wearing it!

I know these Erik Madigen Heck images of Mary Katrantzou’s work have been doing the blog rounds but I couldn’t help myself. They are just too good to leave out. In fact they are spectacular! In some of the shots I had to look twice to see if these amazing prints were painted onto the models?!

I missed The September Issue doco the other night on TV but was over the moon to catch it on abc iview (I really do love multitasking to some iview action). I did see the movie when it came out but there were some different scenes in this doco and I just loved seeing it all over again. It seems like a crazy fun world to be apart of (albeit stressful) and Grace Coddington is an Art Director genius.

Just discovered this amazing New York based brand that is influenced by Kenyan textiles. Just beautiful photos too!

Such a dreary day in Melbourne calls for a colour pick-me-up.
