Humanoid FW 2012/13
No philosophy. Doing something. 

And they did it again. What to say about one of my favorite labels. Born in 1981, absorbed and improved the New Wave and Punk era, 
crossed the USA borders in the eighties and introduced  their first shoe collection in 2006, since 2010 you can go mental on their webshop.
Humanoid is understandable. Feminine and well considered cuts and patterns, all made from first-rate yarn, pure silk, 
butter soft leather in the most remarkable colors.
Humanoid is like a human, that’s what Human-oid literally means, but I think they are from outer space.

The Green Fashion Competition 2012
Highlights of an amazing night!
Elsien Gringhuis, winner of last years competition, kicked the night off with an striking movie vimeo.com before starting her show. 
Dresses, skirts and trousers in stunning greens and off-white combined with black. 
Gringhuis’ new collection is characterized by simple but ravishing silhouettes.
Category 2, up-and-coming designers
Carrie Parry, fashion that makes you happy, great show and well-deserved winner.
Narelle Dore, a bit of too much spool knitting going on here, nice, but for a very select audience.
O My Bag, bags in the spotlight, nice movie, good music, eco bags with a vintage twist, a classic Dirty Harry.
Zagb,  especially loved the colorful knitted hoodie, Ibiza stuff.
Category 1, the more established labels
L’Herbe Rouge, sober and chic.
SPRB, nineties revival.
About Stat Division, I can be short and sweet, I want it all, the fur coat, fake for sure, dropped like a bomb and will become a huge hit!
Studio JUX, they are on a mission and that mission is to rule the green world. Again a great collection and winner of 25.000 euro.

The whole competition was a huge eye opener to me, finally I saw the light, green doesn’t need to be grey.

Furansu FW 2012/13 @AIFW
Quality knitwear with a bit of fun, Furansu, a name to note.
The name means France in Japanese and they became famous overnight by their pure and simple Cashmere and Alpaca knitwear. 
Today’s show only included a few pieces and was over in a flash, but all pieces were first-rate and to me that’s all that counts.
