I scanned all these images from an amazing book I own called ‘Fashion Today’. It’s full of the most incredible photographs – there are hundreds, and every time I look through it I manage to bookmark a whole new set of images. It’s nice when you realize that your taste is always evolving, and that you can look at the same image for years without having any sort of reaction to it, until one day something suddenly clicks in you, and you realize it’s the most inspiring thing you’ve ever seen! I guess it would be kind of boring if you were always attracted to the same kind of stuff. Anyway, here is the (extremely edited) result of a few years of bookmarking…
John Galliano RTW 97/98
The image below makes my heart skip a few beats every time I see it. My scan of it is dedicated to my wonderful friend Max… he left Melbourne for Paris a few years ago and doesn’t seem to want to come back :( …I just don’t understand WHY, Max?!?! (Haha). We used to search Camberwell Market on Sundays for Vintage ‘Mosch’. I miss you!!!
