Zipper Neck Piece…Berlin

by Lee Oliveira on September 5, 2011

From this moment forward I will see zippers in a whole different light.


If you have never been to a fashion week before…. expect the unexpected.

PS: I’ll be jumping on a plane tomorrow and heading away for a month. New York, London, Milan and Paris for fashion weeks. Very excited although I’m going to miss my dog like crazy. I hope she remembers me when I get back.

Fantastic fantastic! Reminds me of a Frill Necked Lizard. I have seen a bag made of colourful vintage zippers and whichever zipper you undid it opened the bag. Have a great time at the Fashion shows! And I look forward to the photos!

Well that sure is a statement piece, what a gorgeous gal!

I hope you have the best time ever lovely… can’t wait to see ‘who’ you run into over the upcoming fashion weeks – lucky you! For some reason I always thought you were an Aussie native, but remembered you moved there from London, I would have done the same had I not met Mr. Perseus!

p.s If I make it back to London over FW I’ll let you know! x
