Making your own way…

Like a lot of people, in the early 90′s I was a huge Nirvana fan. I actually got to see them play in 1991, it was my first concert without my parents (my first concert with parents was New Kids on the Block in 1989). When Kurt Cobain committed suicide in 1994, I was genuinely saddened by the loss of …

House of Organic FW Part Two

It’s stunning how many amazing designers are latching onto sustainable fashion. Not just because it’s the ‘right’ thing to do, but also because historically, the best design (and art) have come from adhering to sets of principles and ideologies.

Nowegian Wool

There is a lot more to Norway than Style Bytes and sardines… For instance, Norwegian sweaters. One of my favorite Scandinavian blogs Life is Carbon, introduced these traditional sweaters by iiS with a modern twist. Although, I’ve seen these sweaters around before, mostly on hippies and random outdoorsy people, I’ve never really lived in a place where it was necessary …

The Organic Ruway : Part One

Perhaps Fashion Week is all about the fashion watching and parties, as I was secretly envious of all those bloggers who got to attend the festivities whilst I stayed tucked away in my western city.  Next time, I’ll make it…. honestly I’m curious about all the designers that aren’t on style.com, after all one of the big problems of  Fashion …
