Some photos of my outfit from Zac Fresh's collection for Palomar College's MODA fashion show. There were some good designs but Zac lead the theme ("Xtreme") of the show full force. This being his final show for MODA was only the prelude to his label, Zed Threads. I'm a vintage lover so when I realized that I would be wearing reconstructed, recycled, recategorized camouflage accesssorized with a handmade backpack with a gas mask, a knife strapped to my thigh and combat boots, I was apocalypse ready. What I also loved about the whole entire collection is that it was not gender-based, everything was 100% unisex. Therefore, Grace Jones was called upon for androgynous inspiration. Who better as a muse with the extreme makeup that accompanied these divine looks. Zac was the headliner with one of his looks, my personal favorite from the collection, on the cover of the magazine that accompanied the fashion show. His insanity reminds of McQueen, Gaultier and Galliano. Look at the rest of his collection  and check out and like the Zed Threads page here. All runway photos [below] courtesy of Zachary's brother, Sean Fresh.

vintage jacket
Forever 21 pants
DIVEDED by H&M backpack
Dr. Martens platform boots

Backpack ridiculously too tiny + jacket ridiculously too humongous = wtf was I thinking? Besides the fact that I get bored and love too experiment with different formulas of random, unconventional ways of wearing shit. Slim it down half way keeping the material the same texture to validate some type of sanity and then chunk it out at the bottom to balance out the chunk on top. nerd for sure and utterly for life....

 Kill City leopard denim vest
H&M tank
J Brand x House of Cunanan shorts
vintage belt 

This summer was completed with my beloved leopard vest. Distressed denim + leopard print = perfection! I love when 2 of my favorite things are synchronized. Especially when it's 1 part grunge and 1 part chic! and that is what Cemaka vs. Troy is all about. Cemaka is vintage glam while Troy is minimal: utilizing classic and grungy basics. We ground each other and together we complete the epitome of androgynous perfection. At the end of the day we are pretty much the same person as we cross over and overlap regardless of our sheer duality. Yea it's a Gemini thing.... This strapback though. Obsessed, it is from my little brother's friend's clothing line and  this one specifically... from my little brother... Damn I want one but whatevs I gave my little bro this H&M tank so I think it's fair trade to let me at least rock his shit. Again, the chic snakeskin detail strap on this baseball cap makes grunge and glam find common ground. So with all that has been said here should I purchase THIS? That might be doing too much, concept overkill attacking my wardrobe! Tired and ready to dozzzzzzzze off.
