My apologies for my absence as of late, but it is coming to the end of term at college and I have a million assignments I should be doing and some pattern-making notes I should be studying...but I'm a pro at procrastinating.
I have some photos of a lovely girl I caught in her Alexander McQueen resort '09 frock, at Arise African Fashion Week. I will post a little write-up about that too.
I will be updating from next week again, after the madness has subsided.
To tide you over, there is a great party happening at Carfax in Newtown this Saturday...a DJ/producer by the name Trevor Jackson (from British group Playgroup) will be spinning as well as a blog favourite DJ, King Of Town and a live performance from Desmond and the Tutu's. Promises to be quite fancy.
TREVOR JACKSON LIVE @ CARFAX (Facebook event)
Saturday sees the return of the monthly Junk Sale, held at Deer Hunter in Greenside (135 Greenways road)
I'll be selling vintage clothing from 10am-3pm.
Come support the store and all us junk collectors. Clothing, accessories, books, toys, furniture, records, art and general oddities and treasures.

Then, finally, next Saturday the 11th of July sees the launch of Vice Magazine in South Africa. Hosted by my buddy's NOIR, the night will feature non-other than international super-group NEW YOUNG PONY CLUB spinning a DJ set, alongside myself (SO EXCITED!) and other NOIR resident DJs Fleischwolf & Johnny Cache.
Other live performances on the night will consist of NEXT OF KIN from Cape Town and DIRTY HERZ from Joburg.
MTV will be present to record this special evening.
The/Sweat/Shop sample sale at the night will see cost price one-off samples from Carhartt, Mooks, Pointer Shoes and RVCA clothing's 2010 ranges.

Good day. Catch the next one at the beginning of next month and thereafter every first weekend of every month, Greenways Road, Greenside (opposite Design Center, who happened to have their open day this past weekend and proceeded to blare awful radio fodder across the street at us all day, making my hangover much harder to deal with. They played a certain "Mr Jones" 4 times. REM, twice, and every Lady Gaga song, ever. Torturous.)
Trying to keep the updates as regular as I can but college is killing me. Promise I will, promise.
