I made my last trip to Melbourne two weeks ago and it goes without saying that I paid a visit to my favourite place – Camberwell Market. The weather was crisp, the people good-looking, and best of all I found someone selling hand-cut kimonos for $25 each. Naturally I had to snag one.

I admit I’m not wearing it the traditional way due to the lack of details, but in my head I knew it’d make one hell of a dramatic silhouette. When I walked on the streets I felt like an Asian assassin, even though my mission for the day was just to attend trade and runway shows for work purposes (’twas fashion week here). Needless to say with my piercing smoky eyes, religious-themed leggings and billowy kimono, some people looked at me like I’m the confused farmer cousin of Beelzebub.
