I had to check out the Sketchbook Magazine pop-up store in Carnaby Street before it reached its final pages at its location in Carnaby Street. It had caused a media frenzy with various events that were packed into 3 weeks, and had I been in London I would’ve brought my duvet over and settled down in the corner just to be at each of the events. When I followed Kit down to their basement the other day, what I saw were rooms that were like sketchbooks, spilled out onto walls and floors – paper mobiles, collages, paintings and murals… what a burrow of wonderland it was down there. It’s such a pity I’d missed literally everything that was scheduled (and everyone, including a talk by my darling bubble Susie), but I’m sure keeping an eye out for a next time. Who knows, maybe next time they’ll organize a paper festival for all they seemed to be capable of!

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.

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 the end with a mirror-adorned robe, which was a perfect finish to the show with the colour-clad collection reflecting on the designer himself.
