The Demons of Barry’s practice

Barry tells me about some of his adventures. “Oh, one of my very first actually, girl was about 25, 30 years of age. She had at least a dozen nasties in her, and it took me hours and hours and hours to deliver her, and I was wearing a crucifix and all of a sudden this hand came out and grabbed it…she was a big kid, fairly heavy girl, and she just grabbed at this and tried to rip it off my throat."

Talented Threads

A simple train ride is enough to accentuate the spectrum of fashion and the impact of the industry. Commuting to and from university excites me because in one journey I spot garments from every era of fashion worn in different ways; from vintage to current runway daywear. Intrigued by this observation, I went on a journey to scope out the talent of exuberant fashion creators at Murdoch. Like every tertiary campus, Murdoch University is a melting pot of weird dressers (let it be known that I say this in very positive light). We are all in a way a part of this mega tribe of fashion, whether we like to admit it or not. It doesn’t matter if we scope out an intense color coded wardrobe every day or resort to a good old jumper with some nice kicks. What matters is the culture that is being created; popular culture, street style, modest street style, sport luxe, the list goes on my friends. Style and culture were the core things that led me to meet two incredible people with amazing upcoming brands. Introducing Kenza Threads and Ebony by Roe.
