Brooklyn Fashion Weekend
It was the REAL fashion event of New York in Williamsburg last weekend at the Secret Project Robot in the Monster Island building on Kent Ave.
My mate Ramon and I went along on the Friday night and managed to catch Mandate of Heaven, Sovereign Beck, King Gurvy.
Here's our review:
MANDATE OF HEAVEN
Composed almost entirely of recycled vintage, every
last piece in newcomer Carissa Ackerman's line
Mandate of Heaven is one-of-a-kind—think Grace Kelly
meets Roller-girl with hints of Marc Jacobs and Stella
McCartney. ….But don't mistake the Mandate girl for
fluff of any sort. 'By mixing and manipulating the
best elements of our past and present", says Ackerman.
"I want to create the well-lived life of our future.'
" -Blackbook Magazine.
Their show was well put together, the clothes were beautifully made and the collection was very cohesive! We loved it. Have a look for yourself!
Check outMandate of Heaven here!and here!!
You really should.
Here is the highlight of Artur Arbit's men's line, King Gurvy. It was funny and interesting but nothing new...you can google them if you want to find more...
To be honest, I have nothing to say about Sovereign Beck. Don't even bother googling them!
ALL IN ALL IT WAS A GREAT TIME HAD BY ALL!

Brooklyn Fashion Weekend
Thursday, February 14, 2008
In the begining I made tshirts...ru rave shit in the style of Katherine Hamnett...
Only I made custom designs. A la...
(My favourite was "SO EN VOGUE KYLIE MINOGUE"!)
Just a wee nit bit for you....This one girl asked me for 3 designs, with Cry Me A River...and two other titles that are Justin Timberlake lyrics...she wore them to his show that night...and got upgraded to front row and got VIP PASSES!
Thats what you get when you come to me baby!
That is my background, I design and print my own tshirts, and I'm thinking so starting up again...so watch this space! At the moment we are based in the New York wonderland, selling the highest quality vintage and making unique boutique clothing for the stylish individual.
I am SOOO bad at writing this blog...it actually started in 2006 but the gaps were so large that I've re-done it to all fit into 2008! Apologies in advance!
