[Fashion Fridays] Alice McCall

Welcome to a brand new series!!!

I'm super excited to announce that I am starting Fashion Fridays to celebrate fashion and clothing designers all year long. 

Believe it or not, there are dozens of fashion shows all throughout the year. Now you guys will get the latest scoop on designers from all parts of the globe, not just the USA and Europe.

We're starting out with the best from the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia 2014, which just concluded on April 10th.

Guys, Australian designers have got it going on! They are completely unique, in a way that I did not expect.

First up, Alice McCall, who is celebrating her 10th year in business as the Alice McCall brand. Her designs for the Spring/Summer season spoke to me through the perfectly tailored lines, girly shapes and super short sexy dresses, shorts and skirts.

Desire Obtain Cherish

I love satire, wit, and sarcasm. The brand "Desire Obtain Cherish" started by Jonathan Paul is fantastic! His art (mainly sculptures) would be considered "pop art", but it is the absolute best I have ever seen. The fact that it carries an important message about our high society just puts the cherry on top.

Take a look at some of his recent work... Are you a fan?

[Monday Models] Toni Garrn

Most models reach stardom once a big brand name or person signs them to be their face for a season or campaign. It's amazing that one moment can have such a significant impact on a person's life, but that's just how it is in the fashion and modelling industry...

Calvin Klein was the saviour for German model Toni Garrn. At age 15, Toni walked exclusively at Calvin Klein's 2008 shows and was featured in his ad campaigns.

Paper Cuttings from Rachael Ashe

Rachael Ashe's work has an Asian resemblance, but I don't believe she has ever spent time in Asia! She mainly works and lives in the US and Canada (western parts of both countries).

I'm extremely drawn to her designs because they are delicately designed and made with a delicate medium (paper and yarn).

Incredible! Enjoy!

Dustin Yellin's "Psychogeographies"

It's extremely hard to put into words how incredible Dustin Yellin's artwork is. Here is a description taken from his website:

Multiple glass layers, each individually embellished, create a unified intricate, three-dimensional collage. His art is notable both for its massive scale and its fantastic, dystopian themes. The work displays Yellin’s surreal romance with the detailed genius of the natural world and humankind’s dubious efforts to improve it. Yellin displays a ready willingness to experiment with forms and materials, using bizarre found objects, eccentric clippings from diverse sources, computer-generated images, acrylic, and glass.

And now, dun dun dunnnn, the PHOTOS!!!
