The kidz are our future

On Wednesday 10th of November Auckland University of Technology (AUT) held their annual student exhibition. This year unlike the previous, the whole of the Art & Design School held their openings on the one night, giving the visitors a chance to take a tour through the many departments including Spatial Design, Visual Arts, Graphic Design, Fashion and everything in-between. –Smart conscious move on their part as this week is also Auckland Art Week!
Anyway bla bla, making my way through the Fashion side I came across these works which I thought should get honourable mention. First is the works by Monique Laloli, Fashion student. I love the graphic trippy print tee teamed with the bold colours layered under/over the tee. My fav been the left outfit (above) as the print itself is such a strong piece that the dark grey turtle neck gives a causal flavour for an easy every day look.

....And above her work photographed in action, wind blazing, “look mum, invisible bike” pose, its cool!

Angela Sumner & Claire Morrison and to the right again Angela Sumner, while the right side outfit with the bright orange reminds me of a road side worker but each piece is made extremely well. Propz to your technical skills coz I got A.D.D sewing skills! 
Claire Morrison. Now me and my friend Sose were somewhat torn between this get up. I liked it because it’s like Granny’s check dress and cropped tweed jacket but with the belt buckle adds a rock, hard edge twist. The Lime tights adds a pop of colour and a bit of weirdness whilst my mate, not too keen on the “Im wearin my Gran-Mamas gear” look.

Now this is an easy going look, the detailing on the shoulder which although its a trend that is either in or has been in all major retailers you still cant beat it. Especially for the Pear shapes (which I am) the detail broadens the top in line with the bottom, balancing the lower half creating a more proportioned shape....An Hour Glass figure.... or so Ive herd. Either way I’ll turn to the side and BAM- my lady gut, but that’s off topic....but the long singlet with the pockets, O for Osum! Handy for those with idle hands and those prone to the cold!
