It’s been a LONG, long time. I’ve been busy.
Being a fashion designer is like taking a breathe, a long single ever lasting breathe each day and filling it will everything that you need to exist. Not just air, but everything that you can dream, everything that you can create… and do create. The problem is that in order to exist in this world as a designer you have to create outside of the lines to be fulfilled and inside the lines to create a name, to pay your bills, and to build a resume. The outside and the inside fight one another.
I’ve been getting a lot of questions about ONIKAI lately, what am I doing, what are my next projects, when am I showing for fashion week, where’s my line etc. Designing in the corprate world takes more than 100% effort, because when you fight to be good, you push to win, and in turn ONIKAI has been put on pause. Not a stop or a slow diving non existence LOL but just a pause. You have to climb to the top before you can sky dive and I have things I need to accomplish before I find THE way that I want to approach ONIKAI. However, I am still selling tees, doing custom design and many other things on the side, remaining the creative designer that I will always be. Just wanted to keep everyone updated. Thank you for the continued support & love, keep a look out for more updates. Things are moving and changing, and sooner than later they will be shaking. XOXO Poni*
At first when I was scrolling through the 60+ looks of the Christopher Kane show I thought to myself “whoa whoa whoa, who’s trying to be Michael Kors with all of the camo print. And whoa whoa whoa, that’s a lot of freaking camo print”. I mean I know Marc Jacobs did it last season with stripes but not everyone can barf up stripes and get away with it right? Then I scrolled down some more and the show slowly and progressively got better, and better and better. Now I’m obsessed. Seriously. Did you see the sweatshirt with fake flowers all over it!?! It’s crazy but you kind of want one right?? RIGHT!? The Christopher Kane show was progressive, new, innovative and fresh. I mean come on he found a way to make velvet look interesting. Good job CK.
