This is from Day 1 in Hong Kong where we kinda roamed through the little alleys and dug for treasures from old tradesmen selling antique paint brushes & retro art. Apart from Mongkok, i think i'm pretty much in love with Lan Kwai Fong- it's a bit of old, new and everything in between. You'll understand what I mean through the photos (which.....will come soon)
O' btw, I paid 42 bux for a burnt cup of takeaway Latte. Nearly died of horror.
Over the past couple of months, I've been working with fashion crackheads Jacinta & Joyce to plot our way through a super side project we'd like to call LEFTBLOCK. This one's a mish mash joyride where colour pom poms, upcoming designers and underground design works all come out to play; or you could simply think of it as your alternative gateway to fashion orgasm (hehe).
But hey, think I might just play a little suspense game with you guys while we drop this little teaser on your calenders next Thursday, the 22nd of April. We will be collaborating with Nike Sportswear to give you some insider scoop of what you'll be expecting in our BIG GIG this coming July.
The stakes have gone up since working with Nike Sportswear previously on our PMS for Nike Sportswear colab last year, so be expecting some pretty exciting things for this coming event which will feature their Spring/Summer 2010 collection.
Specially for you guys, I'll be giving out 3 pairs of invites to the LEFTBLOCK x NIKE SPORTSWEAR event. So if you're from the Klang Valley, Female and aged 18 and above, just follow the prompts below and hit me a mail at firstname.lastname@example.org before the 18th of April 2010 (This Sunday)!
So today was Sweatshop Session in preparation for the big gig where the 3 of us spent the first few hours cock staring at a gray tee and decided that dirty yellow and gray just ain't meant to be. And so was peach & white, cheap silver, electric blue, and hot pink. Noice -_-
But hey, me thinks our 6 hour work shift ended up pretty banging with a rib cage, web necklace, netted cape and some groovy leggings dancing along to 70's music. We'll bring them out to play next week, just you wait :)

My entire wardrobe might end up being all crops at the rate my scissors are working those fabrics. Though I think my chopping skills might just come in handy with this project we're working on now- lotsa DIY/revamping/restructuring/reloving happening this week. I is love, but you guys better make sure YOU is love too, so go now, go get your pom poms ready and do a lil dance for us. :)
ps: Hong Kong killed my legs but crazy clothes hunting & Ngao Lam Min made it all worth it. Will update with the 411 in a bit.
Snapshots taken from spots in KL and some random hill far far away. I think its the sorta feel and gist I'd like to see in the shop one day. Do you get my vibe? Kinda raw, kinda old, some stinky stinky and down right dirtaaaayy?
