I met up with Perth expats Mahaila and Michael a little while ago to talk inspiration, industry values and  general Gen-Y issues for their blog, Ficklesense, where Mahaila writes about her efforts in running a sustainable label, documented by photos taken by Michael on proper, old school film cameras. Her questions really gave me cause to reflect and define what I actually give a shit about in fashion - you can read about it here.

Mahaila also runs another blog, which I highly recommend you take a squiz at: I GIVE 2 HOOTS discusses slow fashion attitudes and practices, and details four accessible ways in which one can actively partake. The categorising of Creators, Enthusiasts, Nostalgics and Minimalists is spot on - which one are you?
