For the past few days i have been missing the blogosphere, due to straining my wrist on the weekend.
I am now back in full force to update regularly on the week that has been ! Tonight i was invited by a friend to attend a Marie Claire James Street Up Late event, that was held in Fortitude Valley. All designer label shops along James Street such as Sass & Bide, Camilla, Easton Pearson, Ksubi etc, were all open til 9pm, offering specials in store and lucky guest appearances by the designers themselves. Most of the stores had an intimate setting that allowed one on one time with the designers and garments themselves, however the most popular were of course the festive ones that had gone all out with their interior decoration. Calexico were a standout, going with a carnival theme with balloons, candy, fairy floss, punch, clown balls and even real snakes! This event was a brilliant idea for designers to interact and converse with their own target market and customers, as not everyday they get to see or hear from their consumers. The best feeling in the world is knowing you've made someone feel better about themselves from wearing something you've designed out of your passion and love for fashion.Outfit
