A quick survey looking into the evolution of gender and sexual orientation and the influence it has on androgynous fashion trends. If you have a moment to fill this out, it would be most appreciated! xx
you don't think it's inappropriate/cultural appropriation for you to wear a bindi?
No, not at all! You should look into it before you get too concerned- for Indian women, a traditional powder bindi is worn to signify marriage/new marriage, however they are a fashion accessory. Rather than being inappropriate, it has become a conversation starter with Hindu women and always seen in a positive light!
Hi! I was wondering if you studied fashion. And if so, where? Thanks! x
Hi, I’m currently at RMIT University in Brunswick doing fashion design and prior to that I began the Design Art degree at Australian Academy of Design, majoring in fashion also. If you are looking for advice on Melbourne fashion schools, feel free to inbox me again, I think I might have some advice up my sleeve after my uni-hopping ways! xx
I realise I have explained little-to-none re: the parade. So.
Friday night I finally got a handful of my designs onto the runway (yay!) for the Expressions Fashion Gala (Butterfly Foundation charity event). I jest not, this was better than Christmas for me. I was THAT mother flippin’ excited!
To all of you who helped to make this happen, I want to squeeze-hug you all to the moon! Your patience, passion, kindness, generosity and aesthetic skills (this covers my baben’ models, hair stylists, camera kids…all of you really) made this so successful! You are an epically skillful bunch- can not wait to do it all again.
AND THANK YOU for all the amazing feedback and support, friends and strangers alike! XXX
