Skoczek X Gorman

When Art and Fashion collide.  Uber groovy artist and funtime studio pal, Miranda Skoczek, has been tasked with creating unique new textile designs for the wonderful Gorman label.  We popped along to the season launch in the Gorman Swanston Street store, which was a whirlwind of Chanpagne and shopping.

Fashionable Skoczek.

Dining @ Tokyo Tina.

Tokyo Tina is new Japanesesque diner on Chapel St in Windsor, sister venue to Hanoi Hannah which is just up the road.  On a Thursday evening it was full to the gills with a young crowd warming up their weekend a day early.
After snacking on some groovy Gyoza and fantastic tempura Jalapino peppers stuffed with smoked chicken we both opted for a ramen, which looked inviting, but alas was way,way too salty.

Tokyo Tina, is lots of fun at
but the ramen cannot recommended.

Construction in Process VI. The Bridge 1998.

In 1998 the 6th edition of Construction in Process, a Polish born arts event, was held in Melbourne.  With many events being conducted around the city, a focal point was "Pile On" which saw a derelict building on Collins Street, given over to a bunch of artist for installations and happenings.  Mr Brown took over a suite to create his own little animated corner.  Painting the interior blood red and then adorning the walls with all manner of objects and creatures, rendered in black ink on white card.  

For the opening evening/event his alter ego Hot Coco inhabited the lair, continuing to create fantastical imagery to bedeck the walls, or be given away as souvenirs, much to the wonderment and delight of the audience.
