Watercolours & Jimmy D.

Last night i had the pleasure of seing a show by WATERCOLOURS here in Auckland. 
The Band celebrated the release of their new Video PAZZIDA.

I was expecting some local sweet girl with a guitar playing something like a "Wonderwall" cover or so.
To my delight it was the opposite.

Chelsie, the lead singer, was simple amazing to watch. 

All Band members dressed in white. She was wearing a silk dupion Kimono jacket. 
Innocent white flowers decorated on instruments and interior with light installations gave the hole venue this "holy/untouchable" ora.

Did i tell you about my great hosts here in Auckland? For one there would be the designer Jimmy D. and his Boyfriend Chris.
Both of them are sooo much fun to be around with - and! - they always know the best places to go get dinner or breakfast haha which is really good to know here. And i love going out for dinner/lunch/whatever.

James also owns a boutique called CHILDREN OF VISION
Great puristic shop on K-road.
Selling local new zealand designers like Deadly Ponies and his own Brand Jimmy D.  but also european Designs s.a. Bernhard Willhelm.

His Atelier is right around the corner from the Shop.
Sharing it with the New Zealand fashion-label Maaike

It's really great to see such potential for fashion and Art here in Auckland! I really was not expecting that for whatever reason. European naivness :P
After strolling about in town i went to visit Chris at his PR Office "CIEL PR" but that is another post ;)

The "Problem" with being me.

When you grow up you go through different phases or times in your life.
These manifest themselves in the way you dress, the music you listen to, the political views you get or set as a standard for yourself.
At some point i got to an age where i thought "okay i have to be grown up now"
And that involved bundling up my past and letting it be - even looking at what i thought was right back then or belittling the essences of my former lifestyle (music, politics, etc).
The years i have spent living in Vienna where just everything - literally filled with pretty much every situation one can imagine.

I got empowered.
I was dragged down. I gained many new friends.
I lost many old friends. appreciation. rejection.
things that we as overall would call LIFE.

In all of this my biggest problem was to find a group i belong to or to have friends who are truly my friends - not seeing that the friends i had the longest already where all i needed. Very slowly and probably only over the last thre…

Hetzendorf BA Show 2013

Kind of a hassle was made about the Hetzendorf fashionschool BA Show yesterday.
So my expectations were set high.
were they met? - uhm... well partly. All in all the show was nice and well prepared but there was an overall look the every collection.
Very scandinavian - wide cuts - big "vibskovy" jackets and coats and such.  Also the current trend of 90s jackets and pants was   seen throughout the collections.
Hardly any cuts that caught my eye. But again - the overall look was okay. Just nothing really new or neverdonebefore designers. no key looks.
Some hat designer showcased 4 looks but only 2 hats? If they have one year to come up with 4 looks minimum i dont know why unfinished pieces are even allowed over runway? #thingsidontget

Some Shoe designer showcases great shoes in the dark with only the models mobile-phone shining on the feet - or directly at the face of the model - BOO!

This artist doesn't need an explaination. I think the pictures speak/yell loudly for their selves.

so much to be said from my side - I find his art grand!
