July Winter - Fashionable Art & Street Fashion Roundup

So much art, so much fashion and so little time to select, edit and present the pictures in a way that does justice to all those involved.. Oh what a torrid story. Actually I have become obsessed with a new camera technique and it's taken over most of my brains editing space! But not completely. Winter has had some great shows and these pictures are from my most recent art excursions. Absolutely loved Caroline Gibbes  first exhibition, Turning Heads at ArtHouse Gallery. Fashion wit and lovable ceramics all done with impeccable style (just like Caroline herself). How wonderful it would be to see, fashion vision of creativity more closely embraced in Australia - where I think it's often considered a dirty world! There are more shows and text following, so do scroll down - and horizontal pictures are now clickable to view larger - so enjoy, what a great art winter its been.

Yes it's been cold - So apparently an off the shoulder jacket is the new thing - quite sensible in Sydney too, where there is never anywhere to hang your coat anyway! Seen at King on William and China Heights.

Anne Lynam, whom I consider a personal friend is having one of her amazing photography shows - LOOK at ARO Gallery. The works so good you can't even be jealous and the pictures are as mysterious as Anne! Go take a look for yourself.

If it's Friday it must be China Heights - I'm surprised my first blog post from China Heights was not until May 2010 (SFS launched late 2008); simply because hanging out at shows at CH and taking photos there was certainly part of the impetus for creating Street Fashion Sydney. And as I have said to many people many times - Street Fashion Sydney was started to show people that creative things DO Happen in Sydney, you just need to show up and join in. Last Friday night at CH was certainly no exception, great art on show from Brooklyn Whelan and Steve Tierney, and plenty of style on show too. My hat goes off to the Directors of China Heights Gallery and the amazing way they have steered the space and continue to show innovative art that's not the mainstream commercial gallery scene.
