My denim fabric highlights from the recent Kingpins NY show.
I'm a bad person. Eeep.... Living up to my nickname here, what a LAMO! I honestly want to but I recently got bogged down with multiple amounts of travel and ended up thinking that if I DO blog, it has to be amazing and it really doesn't, it can be simple, easy and quick. So I'm starting again!
New year, new scroll of inspiration! Here are the iphone screen-grabs that got my inspirational juices flowing in January...
Its the end of 2015! So of course, its time for my round-up of stuff I've got excited about in December. It was an inspirational month!

I heard about India through a great denim dudette friend of mine Anu who is Indian but lives in Hong Kong, she sent me Korra's website amongst a few other weavers and artisans and it looked pretty legit.

On my June visit to LA, a freelance-friendly brunch ended with a wander up to the crossroads of Virgil and Normal (my fave road name in LA) to discover the latest and greatest addition to this burgeoning neighbourhood, in its first few hours of opening: result!
I'm sitting in the Canary Yellow Cafe at the Standard Hotel in downtown LA re-living the awesome conversation between four denim industry leaders at Avery Dennison RBIS’ ‘Denim: The Future’ event.
So we're at the end of the month again and I'm trawling through my screengrabs to re-cap on what I loved over the last 4 weeks. Here we go:

Ok, first off let me introduce you to these dudes because I really feel that they are what make the brand what it is: they live the look, they embody the vibe, they are Feldton.
