Dazed & Confused's february edition. Cover girl Magdalena Frackowiak, shot by Josh Olins, and styled by Katie Shillingford. Absolutely stunning shoot. Well, I don't know if you can go wrong when using those amazing pieces by the Dutch duo Viktor & Rolf. One of the most craziest, boldest, riskiest collection of S/S 2010. When most of the designers are playing it safe, due to the shitty economy, these boys just don't hold their creativity back - for no reason. Amazing!
I just received an e-mail from my friend Mike, where he is auctioning one of his works to raise some money for Haiti. The picture above of M.I.A. shot by Mike Schreiber, is on auction on ebay. It's signed and numbered by Mike Schreiber, and its a traditional (not digital) b/w print (11x14). 100% of the money will be donated to Doctors Without Borders, to help with the ongoing relief effort in Haiti.
Go and auction for it, by clicking HERE. See below more of Mike's amazing work of M.I.A.

I got inspired from friend Anna's blog. She had posted this beautiful African print, that made me remember these amazing designs by Tina Kalivas' that I've had in mind to post them here for a while, but never had the 'time'.
Well, now is the time, thanks Anna for serving me as an DO IT DO IT -inspiration ;)
What's up with the Australians? It seems like every time in run into a cool, new designer (for me new)... they come from Australia. And so comes Tina Kalivas. I have always been crazy about ethnic prints. I wear them, I decorate my house with them... in fashion or not. Well, for those who don't seem to identify themselves as well to these wild patterns, Tina Kalivas has created this amazing F/W 2010 collection to you. Kalivas presents, how to mold the ethnic print in to-date kind of way. Beautiful cuts in the garments make them look a bit futuristic.
Love her modern and edgy take on the beautiful and traditional ethnic prints.
