the twelfth letter high summer 10

while sourcing some pieces for a shoot a little while back, i was lucky enough to meet quill, the head designer for the australian label, the twelfth letter. quill and i immediately hit it off. later, he actually assisted me on a photo shoot. we worked really well together, both really vibing of each other's creative thoughts which basically lead to a great friendship, a whole lot of alcohol, a few more shoots and this, the high summer 10 look book for the twelfth letter.

sheung wan, hong kong

so i have been in hong kong for almost a month now and am still trying to find my bearing's. while walking around trying to discover my new home town i stumbled upon joyce's anniversary exhibition which is somewhere along the border of sheung wan and mid-levels if that's possible. not too sure really.
the exhibition was quite cool showcasing a history of fashion through some high end designer's work.
it's nice to know that my new home has such an interest in fashion! cant wait to see what else hong kong has installed for me.

evie & tris

this is evie and trizzy. two of my homies from sydney. both of them are pretty crazy, in a good way. evie always produces amazing work and is killing it on an international level. a lot of people don't know this about my girl evie, but she is a crazy hip-hop dancer too! my homie tizzy actually dances too, wild's out all the time.

we all worked together a while back on this test shoot, and continue to do so now. we had a dope time, and ended the day with some dope mexicana.
