Let’s see what other cute goodies I found at FashionCamp Milano. Ninja Marketing has launched a Ninja edition collection of Big Bubble Bags – an entire line of innovative eco geek bags made from industrial recycled materials. They come in many different colors and sizes as well as different shapes. What is particularly exciting about the collection is that solar panels are sewn on the large sized bags, which enables the wearers to charge portable electronic devices in sunlight. The Big Bubble Bags are a smart and gorgeous creation from Italy. Eco-geek-chic never looks so good.
In the afternoon of 3rd June, St Martin’s church was filled up with a sense of primitivism, wildness and mystery created by Jess Eaton’s recycled “Roadkill Couture” collection, showcasing couture pieces made of feathers, furs and from body parts of animals that have died naturally or been killed for food. The models dressed in a tight fitted leather dress which accentuated perfectly the female curves coordinated with a luxurious bolero jacket made from rat skin or a billowing cape made from a horse tail and accessorized with a pheasant skull necklace and a beautiful bird wing fascinator effortlessly exuded raw sex appeal and an innate sense of sensuality and seduction, which were a magnet to the audiences under the stage.
The designer used the colour black to convey mystery, sexiness, sophistication and elegance. This signature big bird wing hat served as the main focus of the outfit.
A Gift from Heaven – Lucy Shih X Fashion Visionaries "FRIENDS" for Hong Kong Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2011
It was probably the most touching runway show I have ever seen!
“Lucy Shih X Fashion Visionaries” fashion show entitled “FRIENDS” presented by Hong Kong Fashion Designers Association for Hong Kong Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2011 was the first ever eco-fashion show throughout the history of Hong Kong fashion week, where the infamous Hong Kong designer, Lucy Shih showcased a series of eco multi usage clothing ranging from daywear to evening dresses using eco-friendly materials. The multi-usage collection meaning each piece in the collection could change into seven different pieces maximized the function and versatility of each piece of clothing, which embedded a spirit of conserving the environment in the designs. The majestic carnival costumes decorated with dust broom like feathers added to the collection a sense of humor on top of celebrating a recycling idea.
What won applause in Lucy’s show was not necessarily the top models walking the catwalk in some breathtaking clothes, it was the inspirational and warm hearted message infused into the show which earned every single audience’s tears, that was, everyone of us, young and aged, with or without disabilities are gifted creations of God. We are equally entitled to an incredibly fabulous life and be our own style master, provided that we are grateful for what we are given from heaven above. Seeing the elderly and the disabled walking down the runway as the models, I could no longer hold back my tears and murmured hallelujah.
