Monki´s birthday party last weekend. A night that included champagne, strawberry margaritas, girl talk... and ended with Breakfast at Tiffany's. Soap bubble machine = very good invention.
...and turned it into this waistcoat. Simply because I couldn't stand having a piece of clothing in my wardrobe that I do not wear. The story behind it is complicated. First I was supposed to make it a huge backpack for festival clothes. Then I decided to alter it to a shorter and fitter version of the jacket it was. Then after cutting it to pieces I decided to make it a jacket but somewhere on the way I lost the sleeves. Not literally, after all, but I thought jackets are boring. I bet it already got more use as a waistcoat than as the jacket it was. I wear it over my denim jacket on rainy days.
There was a press event at Miltton Showroom a few weeks ago and I visited with a friend. I'm not exactly press but I used to intern at Miltton, so you could say I've been there quite a few times. Press events are fun! Lots of new things and good food. I forgot to charge my camera, that's why the lack of proper photos. Always ready? No... I must say Miltton got much more interesting now when they have more young Finnish designers. Like Linda Sipilä, who just recently won Finnish Project Runway. The pr-people tried to make everyone put mix-matching color lenses on but I unfortunately couldn´t join that fun because I had my own contact lenses on. Without them I am blind.
