15 years of innovation

Last year I popped my Rosemount Australian Fashion Week Cherry. And it was sweet .Even though I went in the role of volunteer. It was good experience as well as training to see how efficiently Miro House and IMG run RAFW with a staggering number of shows.

The Overseas Passenger terminal (OPT)over looking the Sydney Opera house and circular key sets the backdrop once again of this years RAFW, which incidentally celebrates 15 years of innovation. So far only I have only heard of a few designers who will be showing including Ksubi, reported to be doing an off site showing, meaning away from the OPT. Others include, Kirrily Johnnston, Dion Lee - AS reported from RAFW website, Phos Phoro - info sourced from latest RUSSH mag and talking to a local boutique owner Saint Augustine Academy rumoured to be having their own show. Today I received my domestic delegate approval and am excited to be attending once again. It's always good to sit on both sides of the fence, there's a different type of anticipation and experience.

free socking

It seems summer is far from over. And one of the most interesting looks for guys over the Spring/Summer period is going sockelss.

I've noticed the trendier set, myself included is going sock less with my pants, preferably jeans rolled up. I first noticed this look last year when I picked up the Sartorialist's book. Most of the time with dresser styles of shoes too.
It is a very much a European feeling of sophistication but at the same time relaxed look that has made it's way down under to Australia.
Maybe it's our relaxed attitude or attention to breaking free from the norm.
