Josh Goot Wins The Tiffany Award

The L’Oréal Fashion Festival in Melbourne has not just been concentrating on runways. As mentioned before, it’s a diversified event that is holding many different activities such as work shops, business forums, and art exhibitions. One interesting theme, due to commence on Sunday this week, is “In conversation with Akira” (Akira Isogawa) where we get to take part of how the work of his exhibition behind Printemps – Été came into shape. Read more about the exhibition here.

The Tiffany Award has also been part of this week’s event. This prestigious annual Designer Award - of which past recipients include Toni Maticevski and the label Mad Cortes and Claude Maus - was nominating 6 designers. The award aims to recognise and support designers who are making a profound impact on the fashion industry in Australia. The motto “good design is good business” says it all. Josh Goot was this year’s winner. He describes his creations as “My range is about tailored comfort, ease and versatility. You can wear my clothes dry cleaned, machine washed, pressed or crumpled….” The other finalists were Alice McCall, Arabella Ramsay, Rebecca Dawson, Camilla and Marc, and Material by-Product. So, if we’re not familiar with Josh Goot’s work by now, then we better start looking out for his designs in the shops!

I looked at Josh Goot's site, and maybe it's a bad respresentation, but his line looks kinda... meh. Perhaps it's really stunning in person, but god, that's alot of gray.

at first sight, the jackets doesn't make you want to own one. But once you put it on, you'll know what josh is trying to achieve in his line "easy and affortless"... it will remain one of your staple wordrobe item for a while... you can dress it up or down by playing with scarfs and accessories... the silver track suits definately capture the vintage feel if you are looking for one!!! try one and you'll know!
