Arbiters - Photography Exhibition at KUDOS Gallery

Sydney is finally getting into the swing of  2018 with a pretty cool photography exhibition at KUDOS Gallery which opened last night to a happy crowd. Arbiters is a group show with Orson Heidrich, Vasili Papathanasopoulos, Manon Mikolaitis, Daniel Mitchell, Bryce Noakes, Cat Wratten, Tayla Jay - curated by Vasili Papathanasopoulos & Orson Heidrich. I like the nods to analogue photography - more than a nod in some cases - and the rather well executed presentation of each artists piece. Hopefully these shots from the opening will encourage you to pop along and have a look or yourself. I managed to photograph four of the artist too, great show guys, love your work! KUDOS Gallery 31 January - 17 February 2018.

King Imprint & Kandi Reign Sing & Dance LIVE at NYFW

Well it may be 2018 but I'm still not done with 2017 yet! Not when I still have super cool shots from all around the world and pictures of performances like this one from two young dance stars, King Imprint & Kandi Reign; performing live at Bracé New York Fashion Week. Unlike here in Australia, the independent Fashion shows like to keep you entertained between runway shows but putting on a show... As a NYFW nube this was a pleasant surprise to me and when it's two acts like these young YouTube entertainers coming together it's absolutely top shelf. While I'm pretty sure I captured the energy and excitement of the performance, sadly there is no sound. So if you want to see and hear them perform, just click through to their respective YouTube video channels below after the pictures. Thanks for a great show guys, Cheers; I LOVED IT! Special thanks to SFS's NYFW sponsor White Caviar Life for getting us there.

Asymmetric Style - Black and White in Darlinghurst Sydney

Style is style and asymmetric style has a leaning and learning curve all its own. Spotted tonight (and I asked for the picture) The red disco bag (and double hoop earnings) is the clincher amongst so many great details.

Flares Rule at China Heights Gallery

And so too does the group show of works on paper which of course was why I was there. I did however manage just this shot of (off duty model) Alys in her fabulous black flares which have ruched themselves into something of a Flamenco look, and there's nothing wrong with that! There was also a lovely red haired young woman wearing a lime green(ish) pair of flares and top as well, the flare was split and remained east-west flared! Unfortunately my social speed was not up to the task to manage pictures of both pants suits; maybe next time; till then its time to dig out some flares of your own.

Rappers + Streetwear Labels Finesse UK & Solemates Apparel @ NYFW

Things that struck me the most with Bracé fashion parades at New York Fashion Week. You hear a lot of talk about using models of different body sizes and shapes and of different races.. but you don't often see it. With the Bracé shows you certainly did. And something else I was not expecting was performances between runway shows; giving the night a bit of a cabaret feel along with the fashion runway experience. I liked that. It kept us all entertained as the next designer readied themselves for their show; along with some of the models who were walking for more than one designer, as you do, change their look - so some entertainment during the break is certainly a good idea. I start out with shots of singer/rapper Xavier who performed before the Finesse UK runway show, then rapper Elijah XIII who entertained us before the Solemates streetwear showcase. So here's the shots, and there are more streetwear designers and performers to come so don't forget to follow Street Fashion Sydney on Facebook Twitter or Instagram.
