Australian Fashion Week: Material Boy

On Sunday Rozie and I went to our first Australian Fashion Week show (ok, so I think it’d be my first fashion show ever, hey, I’m IT guy…) to watch Thommy in his catwalk debut for Melbourne designers Material Boy. The outfits were all pretty crazy with them being heavily influenced by Super Mario Bros (bonus points there for daveg fashion relevance!). Pointy boots, tight jeans with super-low crotches, puffy shorts, all in hyper-real, video game primary colours. Can’t say I’d see alot of that stuff being worn day to day (how often is that point anyhow at fashion shows?) but the concept was kinda cool I guess.
