Can we talk about…

The blog Where I See Fashion?

Literally I haven’t been checking a website as often as I do this one since I found Designlovefest two years ago.

 How does someone even do this? Her ability to pair things and see fashion in the most unusual places is uncanny and absolutely brilliant.

I don’t know who the girl is, but she’s a fashion design student from Milan. She doesn’t use her own images, either. If anything, she might use photoshop to get better colors.

She started the blog just because she felt the need to do something with all the inspiring images she found on Tumblr.

“Sometimes a fashion picture reminds me instantly of something and I go look for it, sometimes it’s a random picture that makes me think of an outfit or editorial.”

“Occasionally it happens that by chance I see two pictures near each other on my dashboard or in a random blog that perfectly go together. Also I have A LOT of photos that I saved on my computer because I found them interesting, it’s like my personal archive and I use it a lot to make matches.”

Can you imagine searching for hours through your archives of images to find that one picture you vaguely remember seeing two months ago from a random vogue photoshoot?

Like, kill me. That’s crazy.

This girl is literally superhuman.

To finish, my ultimate favorite. You should seriously bookmark this girl, she is a constant source of inspiration.

Bushwick Babes

Hey there! Mark here!

On a recent trip to NYC I stopped by the studio of Brooklyn-based fashion designer, Kelsey Randall.  She gave me a glimpse of her upcoming collection.

For Spring/Summer 2014, Kelsey is taking inspiration from artist Louise Bourgeois, Charlotte Gainsbourg’s character in the film, The Cement Garden, children’s clothing, and her usual sexy, feminine sensibilities.

Flower crowns, vintage lace frocks, and muslin samples share rack space in the studio.

In addition to her upcoming Spring collection, Kelsey is working on a top secret collection to be entered in the Hyères International Festival of Fashion and Photography.  She’s exploring a more rock ‘n’ roll “party’s over” theme.   We think the party’s just beginning for this rising star and can’t wait to see the new collections.
