Doe making waves!

The 'secret project' we were working on, revealed in full last night at the Design Indaba opening party. so much of excitement we cannot think of words to describe just how good we felt when Waves (Popskarr) walked on stage rocking a DOE creation!

Besides everything running late (including the party- wonder if the Flux Trends conference had anything to do with it?-cant help it.' tis a jungle out there')

we were happy with the end product.


'behind the scenes'

>> 'the ODC gon get u baby!!' ( Origami Diamond Crew!)

Doe-stas you're my rock! ps. Thank u to Anthony for giving us the sweater to work with :) time for a 2bop x Doe collaboration, no?

K*onch X K*onch = unk*onch?

I wonder what Mr Choo is thinking right now?


Its monday again, chin up

When is blogspot getting cool smilies like Skype? im dying to use some!
yes im a geek, so this week we're adding a special gadget to our hotspot, Puma mobile phone?
you wonder if its any good? who knows? but i'll tell you why i like it...
it operates on Solar power as well, so on a day when your phone dies unexpectedly, all you gotta do is take it out for a little sunbathing...voila! its charged!


True love never dies

Photography and i go way back, we really have something special. we'll always be in love...

Monday aint that bad>> collaboration between painter Lola Dupre and photographer Kristiina Wilson.

freakn emotional

okay it's very rare that an advert actually evokes any kind of real emotion in me. like that wimpy one where the albino kid feeds his dog a sausage, it's just wierd. anyway this advert almost had me in tears at my desk, but it is SO rad. especially loving the soundtrack. big up for leading us in the right direction.

enjoy folks

i love my friend neil

my friend Neil made this and I think it's pretty great and pretty hilarious. hope everyone had a good day yesterday, if not, just remember this...

Happy Face


I feel like a new person. I had the best freakn weekend of my life, caught up on sleep, didn’t do anything I didn’t want to. Cleaned, went to happy feet with aunty. It was just perfect. I think this whole Chinese new year has had more of a spiritual affect on me than I may have realised. I feel like a new person. But that aside I had such a revelation last night over a 2am glass of wine with Poopy. Couldn’t figure out why I felt so lost, felt like I was missing academia and didn’t know what was wrong. Couldn’t remember where this journey began or why. Now I know. It began with a fascination with identity. How we build our identities though popculture and subculture. How these show us what’s going on in the social, economic and political spheres of our country and the world. That’s how fashion became so important to me. It was a visual representation of how you’re in the process of building your identity. Okay academia and life I’m ready for you again.
