Art & Men's Style at Memetico by Sam Rey.

As I keep saying Street Fashion Sydney is not an art review site blah blah blah but I do love art and so I do get to see quite a bit of it! Of it! And on reading the room notes to Sam's exhibition I discover that he had his own fashion label in Italy and had a "brief stint at The Factory with Andy Warhol" all of which sounds pretty exciting to me and a sure sign that there would be style a-foot at the opening which of course there was, I know this already because I was there and I photographed it, it all, well some of it all starting out with an artist at his opening portrait of Sam Rey himself.

I also reconnected with Robert pictured below whom I have not seen for years! We won't say how many, however Robert purchased the first art work I ever sold and also commissioned me to make a number of mirrors for his Hair Salons back-in-the-day. He told me he had made that lovely bright digital print shirt himself from fabric he had to dig out from the bottom of a pile at Spotlight! What a great shirt, well worth the digging and great to see you again.
