Courture to Die For

These days it seems to me and probably the average person on the street, that high-end fashion and the stuff you see at fashion shows is grossly expensive and unwearable. Who the hell wants to wear an entire family of minks? Or a large possum on their head?
Another item that some people find hard to obtain is general accessories. Things like bangles, bracelets, necklaces, buckles, corsets, hair pieces etc. All of a sudden however, there has been some kind of accessorising boom in Australia. I live in Brisbane and everywhere I look whether it be on the street or on the interwebz, small accessory businesses are springing up everywhere.

The main problem I have with it is that alot of them tend to copy each other or their products are just simply badly made and modeled on what American scene kids are wearing from Hot Topic. However one such young designer caught my eye and indeed everyone’s here at Mannequin Republic. And I couldn’t have thought of a better name and motto. Dropdead Gorgeous- Courture to die for.

How good is that!?!?! Well it’s good and it works because it’s original. Everyone wants to have exlcusive bits and pieces that they can show their friends and that’s exactly what DDG caters for. Miss Tiffany Barlow (Fanny) is the brains behind it and I must say that she amazes me everytime she designs. Her desgins have alot of thought put into them and that is evident with the finished product.

Things you wouldn’t think of wearing have suddenly become wearable and quite affordable.
And because alot of Fanny’s designs are limited, you will look way cooler than your friends on a regular basis.

All I can say is well done Fanny and I hope she keeps at it because in my opinion, she is leading the way for young designers.
Courture to die for? I’m in heaven.
