If there’s a chance, I’d like to leave Jasper alone on an island and see what he does with the land around him. Will he make sequins out of seashells and jellyfish? Will he find a hatch and cover it with banana scales? Point is, Jasper Garvida does good sequins. Period. He does it so well – he’s explored it, played around with it, applied it everywhere… First time I met him in March 2009 I asked how long it takes to apply sequins to an entire dress – 80 hours, he said. Well Jasper, how about your squad of dresses? The SS11 collection, ‘Belle’, was inspired by Paris 1951 and the aesthetics of Degas’ ballet dancers, it was a particularly feminine interpretation yet the juxtaposition of toothachingly sweet pink with autumnal earth colours came in perfect harmony. Personally the pleats and looped fringes had me gasping, the Barbie in […]

Freemasons’ Hall; Saturday 20th February 19:00 Jasper Garvida Towering heels, lavish sequin embellishments and geometric cuts – Jasper’s AW10 screamed Art Deco and vintage Hollywood. Contrary to last season’s multicoloured, multi-textured and what I personally thought was a rather confused theme, this season’s golden thread through the collection was more than apparent. The show started with tipped-bowler hats and a flirtatious atmosphere by half-prancing models; gold zippers on forest greens evolved to scales of sequins and a more romantic colour palette. Jasper’s love for sequins was epitomized by the last dress, where champagne-coloured fabric squares were applied like sequins, an excellent finale to the collection. Watch the video of this catwalk here. I’m finding myself in a rather unique situation here with Jasper Garvida! For the past 3 seasons I’ve been so kindly invited by Forever Better of Miele for various events around Jasper, some of you may remember the Fashion […]

The Gang: The Stitched, Inspire the Starling, Blog De Tendances, LolaRe, Rachel-Catherine, The Luxe Chronicles, StyleSlicker | 3rd and 5th Photo by Foreverbetter Seems like this happened such a long time ago, the frustration in trying to move into a studio flat with the contents of a 1-bedroom flat is probably equivalent to attending fashionweek with the left shoe on the right foot and the right shoe on the left foot and not knowing. Similar dosage of wtfatkid. So yes, fashion week. I was invited by Forever Better (Miele), along with 7 other bloggers, to Jasper Garvida (Winner of Project Catwalk Season 3) SS ’10 collection showing last Saturday. Welcome desk girl’s crazycool jacket Vivian from LolaRe. Great claws. Inspired by Picasso and Velasquez, Jasper’s collection was like a fireworks festival, colour splashing with every camera flash. There was geometry, complex crochet knits, frills and mirrors; Jasper even stepped out in […]
