The ‘it’ bag? The ‘must-have’ shoe? Forget it! 2013 is bringing attention to what’s on our heads and hats have never been hotter! Making a mainstream comeback, NYC is currently loving them, especially on those ‘bad hair’ days! Featuring heavily on the RTW Spring 2013 runways of Alexander McQueen, Saint Laurent, DKNY and Ralph Lauren, stores in New York are fully embracing the trend and traditional milliners have never been happier.
Like Santa on steroids, the Christmas cheer has taken over NYC with a vengeance. Pine trees line every street corner, fairy lights twinkle all night long and you can hear Christmas carols echoing around every corner. As a white Christmas virgin, I am completely embracing the traditions and sights of this magical Winter Wonderland (despite eagerly still waiting for the snow to fall). As our gift lists grow and everyone fights the gauntlet of the ‘Christmas shopping crowds’ the big department stores make sure they put on a show to ensure this traumatic shopping experience doesn’t steal your festive spirit. No one wants a scrooge.
With the news of Alexander Wang being appointed as the new head designer for Balenciaga making waves in the fashion world, I decided to pay tribute to the talented designer and check out where it all begin.

Discovering that genuine 1980’s leather jacket featuring rare era detailing is like all your Christmas’, birthdays and Friday afternoons have come at once!

The history of this city, through its decades of fashion has created a gold mine of vintage finds. Just make sure you’ve got the dedication, sorting through racks and racks, isn’t for the impatient! Here are just a few places worth a visit whenever in NYC…
With a heavy case of serious jet lag, my best friend/travelling partner-in-crime, Anna and I made our way to the neon-overload that is Times Square. Being our first night in NYC, it was a case of “we actually made it” and “OMFG…this place is overwhelming”. If you block out the millions of other tourists around you, Times Square at night, is a beautiful thing. Like a bug memorized by the bright lights, it was at this moment it hit me… I now live in one of the biggest and greatest cities in the world! Making the move to NYC was something I had thought about for a while. Even while working for some of the most talented people and brands in Australia, I wanted to challenge myself and be part of the fashion industry in New York. After travelling around the US of A for a month, I have now set up ‘home’ in the Lower East Side of Manhattan.

In the heart of Downtown Brooklyn a laid back and creative space reopened over Easter, just in time for spring. Brooklynites and New Yorkers farther afield are happy to see the return of the 7 day a week market that houses everything from children's stores, to cupcake shops and jewelry stores in salvaged shipping containers. Grabbing a coffee and a Steak and Cheese Pie from Down Under Bakery Pies (yes, authentic Australian and New Zealand pies right here in New York!) while browsing through hand knitted eternity scarves and crafted rings all housed in containers can only happen in New York.
