A Part Of Me

by cecylia on August 28, 2012

These past few days I’ve been learning and reporting from Fashion Exposed, Melbourne’s annual fashion trade event hosted at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre. It’s been a great privilege to hear fashion insiders talk about exciting trends occurring in the digital space, interesting consumer behaviour, alluring key trends for Autumn/Winter 12/13, and to meet new designers!

这几天我从墨尔本的服装购买展览会Fashion Exposed学到了很多。我非常荣幸能听到服装业界的人物谈论关于时尚顾客的心理学,他们的网用习惯,和下个冬季的服装特色,最棒的是认识新的服装设计师!

One Melbourne label I’m became besotted with is A Part of Me, the winner of Debut‘s Best Apparel Award. Melbourne designed and made, by Kate Brook (who looks exactly like a friend of mine) and Kajsa Kvernmo, their sweet collection is not only adorable, wearable, sustainable, but it is a cut above. The perfect balance of childlike innocence and masterful tailoring, A Part of Me consists of modern silhouettes in exquisite shapes, luxurious fabrics and rich autumn palettes. Think structured shift dresses, silk button-up shirts, felted tops in wool and silk, pleated leather skater skirts, and my favourite, the black leather shirt. I chat to the designers about the origins of A Part of Me and their collection. (This is my first ever video interview, so I apologize beforehand for 1)my Left index being in the way 2)my incessant verbal agreements and 3)uncontrollable giggles). Enjoy!

我特别爱上其中一个墨尔本的服装品牌A Part of Me‘译:我的一部分’,Debut的最佳服装奖获奖者。Kate Brook 和Kajsa Kvernmo,一对可爱的女设计师,她们的衣服都是墨尔本制作的。不但漂亮,容易穿,对环境友好,而且裁缝技巧很深。她们的衣服带着烂漫的童心,又含着高超的剪裁技能。我的一部分衣服由现代的剪影,精致的形状,豪华的面料和丰富的秋色制作。这个系列中有结构性的连衣裙,真丝领头衬衫,由羊毛和丝绸创作的上衣, 皮革的溜冰式短裙,还有我最爱的,黑皮夹衬衫。我问这对设计师她们品牌和名字来源,她们说因为她们很爱民间和童话故事,而且希望她们所设计的衣服能成为穿者的一部分。这是我的第一部录像博客,请大家多多指教,对不起录像里我的手指堵住了一点镜头,我一直点头赞成她们所说的每一句话,和我停不住的笑声。。。

They sounds like such lovely people, the video interview was a great idea! :) Giggled a little at your finger on the lens – totally the kind of thing I would do!
