There have been a few requests that I film one of my sketches. So here it is. 
This sketch is actually taken from a look from the Cushnie at Ochs show, which was also definitely one of my favorites (see the whole collection here).
Here's a better resolution of the final illustration below:

Also I wanted to say a massive thank you to weardrobe for making me blogger of the moment see banner here

Please meet my new favorite necklace... I love that the chain is short and that the pendant is huge, So I am now looking for this proportion everywhere. 
It also seems my new fave medallion has two frolicking men on it haha!
I did see some awesome medallions that would be so perfect for the Summer in TopShop, but I can't see myself paying $40 for a necklace... hmm ... but I do really like it :D

Took these pictures on Sunday in McCarren park, Willimasburg. This was when there was still a little sunlight still left to be seen... But as all you living in New York know the snow is coming back again WTF BRO!!!!

Wednesday night I was lucky enough to go to the Kate Spade store in soho where Rebecca Ward had made this awesome instalation of neon pink and yellow tape.
See here pictures here.
The outfit above is what I wore that night!! 
If anyone knows me they know I love neon pink!! still trying to find the perfect pink lip shade but the backstage Bambi is pretty good :)

What I loved most about this event was that we had arts and crafts to play with YAY!.
There were rolls upon rolls of the neon tape that you could use to decorate these little kate spade books that they gave out!

Here's a silly video of me conjuring up a ring out of tape. HA!
(MUSIC: Florence+the machine - "kiss with a fist")

I chose my signature lips hehe!! one day I will find a color bright enough to match this tape!!



That was my reply to Nicole's email when I saw this attached image!

During this glorious and exciting time that is NYFW, I was lucky enough to see the Malandrino Presentation. I have to say it was incredible.
I was so inspired by the whole collection especially the silhouettes, so much so I wanted to illustrate my favourite looks.

And today I was very excited to see the collections at the Antwerp presentation.
And there we saw these amazing glasses by LENNY LELEU
Her collection was really interesting and I need to buy some of her pieces immediately.
It consisted of deconstructed T shirts with interlayed corsets and bodices and colorful screen prints. See her Site for pictures!!

It was originally a lot longer so I had to chop and hem it, and also take it in at the sides... So now I have leftover gold sequin fabric WOOHOO ... already started a DIY with it so I will post that soon :)
It turned out to be a really fun night and I met a few people in 3D which I love..... it's always nice to put a 3D face to a virtual person right ? haha.

Also went to see the Mik Cire show last night at the promenade in Bryant park which was awesome! I was invited by the lovely Christine from Christeric.
