the bohemian couture .

after having googled googles face off for general inspiration over the past year, I have finally found the perfect inspiration to share with you.

This is a somewhat aged photoshoot . I use the term 'aged' loosly, beacause this was shot in 1998, but is definate modern take to the styling.

Shot for Vogue Italia, in September 1998, by photographer  Peter Lindbergh, The bohemian couture opens the eyes to a trend that wouldn't surface for 10 years but yet, it is fashion forward and innovative without being weird or tacky.

Models: May Andersen, Zoe Gaze, Audrey Marnay, Lonneke Engel


will be doing an outfit post as soon as possible, but as you know, this month is insane! couture dress in full swing . . . can post after the dress has been seen on the runway ;)

Congratualtions to Nicole Furter and Gareth Haze on the engagement . . . that is going to be a beautiful wedding . . . all the love to you two x

save these horny creatures . they need their babies with noses .

I N T E R N A T I O N A L   R H I N O   D A Y

the 22 September 2011 saw Cape Town's second annual Anti-Poaching Rhino Day . . .
And I was able to go . . . protest . protest . protest .
A march from the Fruit and Veg in Roeland Street to the bottom of the road, Parliament .

Everyone made such an effort, at least 500 people dressed in red showed, and made a noise for these animals that can't for themselves.

10000 South African people have signed the petition to stop poaching . Do what you can for the silent creatures , dress your car with a black ribbon on the right mirror, buy a sticker, wear a shirt . . . sign petitions and do what you can.

You may be wondering why I am blogging about things like this.

Look at the effects and impact the united colour has. This red symbolised the slaughter of the 300 White and Black Rhino this year . . . and the black clothing was to mourn the loss our country is and will suffer. The clothing untied us protesters and defiantly made an impact of the City of Cape Town yesterday.

These animal right campaigns have such an important role on our life, in the fashion world and out, we have to be aware of the world around us. If you are confused or don't agree with these marches, read up about them and educate yourselves. I read a sign yesterday that really hit home.

"         We don't want to be the generation that has to explain what rhino's were, and why we didn't do anything to stop the slaughtering of these animals       "

these fed dolls know how to work

" Be moderate in order to taste the joys of life in abundance. "

college has been on long day blurred into one month of hard, hard work, some strange happenings in class and the occasional FUR or FAUX arguement while we plot on with our assignments. . .

But all work and no play makes Jenna a dull designer.

On Sunday, the 4 September, some of the fedisa ladies took to the clubs of Durbanville for a little R&R. It was The Da SIlva Triplet's 21st brthday party, and them Portugese know how it's done.


DISCLAIMER* this party had nothing to do with fedisa, the lecturers or other students, except the ones photograhed. FEDISA is not a party school, but this is how fashion designers go out in style.{ peace and love }

I have made such amazing friends in my time at this college, friends I hope to keep forever.
