Currently, there's a block buster if you happen to like beauty, elegance, subtlety, mystery, imperfect perfection etc etc (aka Japanese aesthetics).
It's called "Future Beauty - 30 Years of Japanese Fashion".
On Friday nights (after hours) there the Future Beauty Up-Late shows....you know, with great bands, DJs, designer talks, Japanese food, fab wine bar and slow, unencumbered walks through the exhibition.
We've been twice with friends....and last night an amazing little band played.
Shonen Knife!!!!! Three Japanese girls, pint-sized and as cute as..........but could they rock!
Here's how the night went.
|The late, great Alexander McQueen.|
|Gorgeous designer and models tucking in.|
|The Hat Box in Brisbane Arcade might have these chapeaux in stock!!|
|The night was Pure Gold!!!!!!!!!|
|Love those shoes darlings!!!!!|
|Stage being set up....I tried to get a good position....but I was quickly swamped by all the enthusiasts.|
|Imperfect Perfection....a creation from Flora Fascinata.|
|Red suede shoes....perfection!!!!!!!|
|The beer's always good at GOMA....icy cold for our hot, humid evenings.|
|Totally gorgeous in tartan!|
|Cute girls...waiting for those other cute girls, Shonen Knife, to start rockin'.|
|That hairdo was just fantastic!!|
|As I said, Shonen Knife are pint sized....so the vertically challenged|
amongst us (of which I'm a member) had to perch on our tippy toes.
|Elegance....the beautiful people, casually displaying Japanese aesthetics|
without even thinking about it!
|Fantastic sparkles and glitter.|
|Well, I thought I had a good position but soon everyone else wanted it too!!|
|Rockin' the night away.|
|Shonen Knife...pint sized but they were colassal on stage!|
And Their Autographs
|That lucky, lucky fan....3 autographs from Shonen Knife!|
|Do you think she's happy??? You reckon?|
|Beautiful women, talented and generous.|
|The hubster wanted to be their stage manager....they're considering it and will get back to him in the fullness|
of time, and at the appropriate juncture!
|Time to flee....the mobs were getting restless!|
|Voila!!!!! Their autographs proudly displayed by all these beautiful people!|
|Thanks guys. You are great. Liked your style heaps!|
Will I see you all at the David Lynch Up Late coming soon????
I just know I'll find a vintage Issey Miyake, Rei Kawakubo, Comme des Garcons, Junya Watanabe, Yohji Yamamoto for a song. Yes....I'm a glass half full kinda girl!
Bring on the Perfect Imperfection I say!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
