Welcome To October

I'm so madly into Akira Isogawa's Paris collection, especially the magnificant head pieces. It's kind of amazing considering he only showed a collection at Rosemount Australian Fashion Week 6 months ago, which was opened by a snow white Alice Burdeu (that's Miss Australia's Next Top Model to you!). The two collections have some similaritys, the strong colour, floral head pieces, dramatic prints and delicate detail only the RAFW seemed slightly more casual and fluid which is perfection for the Australian summer. Akira is Japanese (living in Aus since the 80's) and there's such a strong Eastern influence to his work; the obi belts, petal prints and beading, the colour, the elegance and the amazing textiles. I melt for Akira.

It just clicked to 1am, the Sonia Rykiel show is today and the new series of Pushing Daisies should pop up online tomorrow so I'll be foaming with happiness since the shows are always so fun and Pushing Daisies is adorable.

PS. How effing cute is the Akira model?!
