Mr Bhu Where are You? Marrickville...

Not only do new and different things happen when you leave your house on a wet and blustery day. Even if you didn't want to... "What things happen?" I hear you ask, well all sorts of things. Firstly Street Fashion Sydney is going to perform a community announcement for the first time. Mr Bhu is missing-and it would seem that being a Koala-shaped-Teddy-Bear, it is unlikely that he will be able to make it home all by himself! Please check out image #4 in our series, he's a cute fellow and the contact # is there. If you have seen him and have a lead on his whereabouts, please let the owner know.

Anyway, post seeing the Mr Bhu poster I dropped into my Fav Marrickville 'Vintage' clothing shop. Its run by a lovely lady by the name of Kwan, if you are buying something from her say hello from Street Fashion Sydney, we are becoming great friends. In fact Kwan has such great stuff I wonder why I am letting the cat out of the bag; I have been getting some great shoes and Man-Boots at rock bottom prices!

So post Mr Bhu, and post a trip to SNO & Kwan at YHK Fashion (264 Marrickville Rd) I actually took some Street Fashion in the Street. I know its been a while LOL & everyone is wearing boots! My flatmate from Chile, me in my 'new' man-boots & a charming German girl who just happened along as per Street Fashion's Raison d'ĂȘtre. And if these shots don't keep the Hipsters out of Marrickville I don't know what will !~))

Ruby Rose (fashion designer) we Love You!

Honestly I have said it before and I will say it again. If you want to see a fashion show; well for goodness sake, watch and maybe take notes because if you try taking pictures you will see nothing at all!

This was proven to me yet again after the Ruby Rose 'Alley-Way' show when speaking to one of the lovely ppl from Milk & Honey I commented on the absence of the Flannel Shirt on the runway. What is it that Hommer Simpson does after coming out with a clanger; Doh! Of course everything Ruby (who by the way is really nice and really lovely) was wearing is from her range; and, there it was when I was going through the pictures... Flannel shirt under denim jacket with black slashed jeans. Hot or what!

I think instead of taking a friend with me as my +1, in future I will take a photographer trained in the dark arts of blurry runway shots as-only-Street-Fashion-Sydney can do them. That way I can enjoy the parade more and get a better idea of just whats going on.

This was an incredibly laid back event, we had four alleys at Strike Bowling Bar Moore Park. Three for doing all manner of ball tossing (the models were particularly good at it post parade) and one for the runway show, possibly a first?

Ruby's range Sexy and Edgy, clearly has all the Classics and Basics covered for a night out on the town and if you are naughty, a not too out-of-place trip home next morning in the same gear... I love it, well its a wild world out there people!

Thanks to Ruby Rose, Milk & Honey & the equally lovely people from Saunders & Co PR.

Sartorial Splendor in The Rocks Sydney

This is certainly my kind of Australian style. The real deal, no pretending, no faking. And as you can see, time is kind to those with their own sense of style. This gentleman started asking me where I was from from as I was photographing my legs in a window reflection. I kid you not; but, he was more than happy to pose for me for the blog for which I am very much obliged.
