This is a bit tacky, but I was watching The Mummy Returns a few nights ago and I suddenly got the idea for my first womenswear collection. I was definitely thinking of the character Evie O'Connell and I kind of just started looking into the 1920s-1930s safari genre and how the women explorers dressed back then when they travelled to Africa and the South American jungles.
I gave the collection the title "The Lady's First Safari", just because it still has that feminine feel in the sheer blouses and the long skirt, but blended with the functional, almost-masculine vibe of the chino pants and riding boots. I guess there's nothing else to this collection other than it pays homage to the independent women of the olden days.
On another note, I was really impressed with the November issue of the Australian Vogue that I've decided I'm going to subscribe to it next year. Just had my birthday two weeks ago and now I'm already thinking about Christmas present for myself. Yes, go on, you can call me a self-indulgent dork.
