I talked recently about wanting to spread a different message at NZFW -- one that wasn’t characterised by the worth of my clothing or the reputation of my family name. On Day 4, with the help of Flo & Frankie, I decided just what that message would be. Here at Currently Loving, we're standing up for kindness.
We've all walked away from an event, a person, or a circumstance and wished we'd said certain things. Here's 8 I wish I said at NZFW, as well as a taste for Day Three events; my thoughts on emerging and established designers.
By Day Two, I've already reached the point I always do at Fashion Week. The one where I wonder why I'm here and if it really fits with who I am at all. Soon enough, something always spurs my why. This time, it's Aurai Swimwear and Salty Sea.
What is it to be sexy in 2018? On the first day of NZFW, it's designer, Turet Knuefferman -- and her distinctly clever label, Knuefferman -- who gives us the answer we've all been searching for. Hint: it's also potentially the secret to being the most confident individual at your next girl-guy gathering.
Lately, I've been inclined to re-think my mindset around productivity and the glorified "hustle": it turns out all work and no sleep isn't all it's set out to be.
You’ll notice that this post is not titled “5 things I do to combat stress” — and quite purposely so. It's a work in progress -- the whole "dealing with stress" and "not pushing people away" thing. Why not join me in the endeavour this Winter?
And with an off-duty look, I’m doing exactly that: signing out from Sydney and MBFW. The end of Fashion Week is always bittersweet. This is an ode to all those who made it what it was; to the glamour, to the lights. And also, to the track pants, the boyfriend and the routine that awaits at home.
Emerging designers don't just stand out for nothing. In the case of Carley Rose The Label, there's more than enough reason to take notice. In the following interview, I talk to Carley about her latest collection, the way she measures her own success, and finally, when she feels most confident.
As of Thursday last week, Sydney welcomed its first custom design hotel. For the duration of MBFW, I have been fortunate enough to trial it. Spoiler alert: it's like no hotel experience I've had before.
Day Three of Fashion Week, and thanks to Blair Archibald, I come to terms with the fact that I don't agree nor relate to everything about fashion and its world. But can we still like, admire and enjoy something.. whilst positioning ourselves in its grey area?
