Social Media and Easter Bunny with a CDG wallet!!

Clearly you can see I have been quipping about social media in my last few posts.

All those who follow my blog, must remember when I spoke about the lovely duo at CoChineChine in my ‘Dinky talks with big people’ feature.

Well a little birdie(in this case a Bunny) tells me these girls are using their Facebook page to the maximum and launching a treasure hunt on the 2nd of April celebrating the Easter spirit. I have a little child in me, and I go wheeeeeee when I start to think of a Virtual treasure hunt.

Its dead simple, A SWASH egg is stashed away on CoChineChine.com somewhere, and all those eyes who spot it, just send an email to competition@cochinechine.com with the link of the hidden egg and you stand a chance to win a Comme des Garçons’ wallet!! Yayyyyy!!

 

I have had my eye on a few actually, and after pampering myself with a Neon Marc Jacob coin/iphone/oyester card holder, I am trying to grow the neon family in my bag with this CDG wallet.

If you are lucky you might win this polka dot embossed one with cochinechine:)

You can view some of the eye catchy pieces on Net-a-porter.

 

Happy Easter! I am going diving in Malta, so I guess,it will be a surprise if I spot an underwater-bunny :)

Social Media and Fashion Retail!

Social Media is taking over the fashion world in every way unique possible!!

I Just visited the Future Fashion at Westfield, Shepherd Bush  today where they had big screens installed with iPhone-esque touch feel to create mood boards and style board.It was bringing Polyvore to a retail environment. They even had a 3D movie running with all the models styled in various themes and trends, like Print, Bright colour pop, Lace et al.

All you had to do was put your 3d glasses on and watch as they almost came up and whisked their hair around while strutting back!

I have made a little dodgy video on my iPhone and sharing it here just to give all those creative fashion marketeers a heads up on this social-style-me up event!

 

Dion Lee’s A/W 2012 film.

I was very pleased to see Dion Lee’s collection at the London Fashion week. The year I moved to Sydney, he had just released his debut collection and all every magazine talked about was Dion Lee!It was only a matter of time I feel in love with his intelligent designs, intense pattern cutting and edginess provided through structure!

This year, following his first international show at London, he follows his collection with an eerie video directed by Lorin Askill,starring Ruby Jean Wilson breathe while Lee’s pieces come to life gradually!

As Mr. Lee says

‘It explores the core concept, which is breathing, in a really abstract way. I liked the idea of focusing on the breath and this more inward exploration of how breathing and the movement of your body are linked.’
