AUT Rookie 2018


I always enjoy seeing the Rookie show each year. I love seeing what the third year fashion students of AUT create, given the skills, resources and creative freedom they have to dive deep into who they are. These are my favourite designers from this year's Rookie show.

Rookie year book one...

i found out about Tavi Gevinson and Rookie, when i was in Real Groovy (a cool record store). i had found the "Rookie Year Book One" and i fell in love with it. Tavi Gevinson started the blog called and now she has published this book. the book is filled with stories from people who never felt they fitted in at school or in life and how they dealt with it. that is not all that is in there, it is also filled with interviews with awesome people like Joss Whedon (creator of some of the best tv shows ever - Firefly, Buffy and he also directed Cabin in The Woods plus The Avengers). if you can't get hold of this book try the library or her amazing website.
