Time lingerie in China Traveling: Classic Shopping with Rapper Misfit Dior

My mom sewed this outfit in two Wholesale Bikini days, she bought the fabric for a pound a yard at a market in East Greater london! I usually put on pink, but she couldn't find any pink on such short notice, laughs Harrison-Roberts, whose mother makes virtually all her clothes from sketches her 29-year-old daughter, a rapper with fashion aspirations (more on this in a moment) provides. But there are things that mum, experienced seamstress that she is, just can't whip up intage furs say, or structured handbags, or the funny small hats Harrison-Roberts loves. Our company is in search of all three, and whatever else catches her eyes, hidden today behind red Dior shades with purple stems.

At the very first booth, just inside the door, a strand of chubby pearls captures her imagination; less than a minute later on, a framed handbag shaped like a small suitcase discovers favor. It can almost like a laptop carrier, it's the right size, Harrison-Roberts observes, although in fact that invention is more than a half-century in the future.

But of course, it's the ability to time travel, at least when it comes to clothes, that makes clothing shows like this so compelling. (The next edition is January 17 and 18. ) While other shoppers are melting over beaded flapper frocks and Victorian lingerie, Dior is in love with mid-century fashion modernism, trying on a succession of big-shouldered furs, pancake smooth chapeau, and gently caressing exquisitely wrought garments like a navy New Look dress with lacy insets. I love the buttons! Harrison-Roberts sighs. They made items so superbly back then.

When she spied a full-on fox coating from the eighties which actually sports a Dior label the woman nearly swoons, but the price? 3, 500s not what an up-and-coming recording designer has in mind, regardless of her love of all items Dior. (On this subject she is quite knowledgeable, discoursing on one of her idols, the perennially leopard-clad Dior muse Mitzah Bricard. ) So it is with great exhilaration that the woman uncovers an additional, shorter fox coat, maybe showing a couple of signs of a lengthy happy life and with a far less impressive provenance, but nevertheless chic and supremely wearable for $240.

This sublime purchase is rapidly stuffed into a buying bag, and we repair for a coffee so she can fill me in on her extraordinary tale. Harrison-Roberts grew up in the English countryside, in Sussex, but by 15 was hanging out in London golf clubs til almost all hours. My parents would pick me up at four in the morning, she says with a smile.

As soon as the woman could, Harrison-Roberts moved to Greater london, where the woman worked as a model and was an admitted hard partier. The woman loved rap and, in that way that young girls have, managed to talk her way backstage when Eminen was in town (maybe her chainmail top, pasties, and baggie denim jeans helped her case. ) She quickly became friendly with his entourage, forming an especially close relationship with Proof, who would take on the role of hip-hop Higgins to her rapping Eliza Doolittle. He would critique all my rhymes, he mentored me, she remembers.

On New Year's Eve 2003, Harrison-Roberts arrived in the U. H., where the woman found an apartment in Williamsburg (where else? ), proved helpful the door at various golf clubs, attended open mics in Harlem, appeared on VH1's Ego Trip's (White) Rapper Show left after two episodes; it was patronizing for me, but I got a lot of exposure not accidently, watched a lot of Hitchcock movies, perfecting her personal style.

Though she actually is currently completing her 1st album he premiere track of which is entitled, tellingly, Hitchcock Blonde, she confesses, I love fashion! Fashion actually came before music for me. Visions of boxy purses and tiny hats and full-skirted frocks dancing in her head, she lowers her glance, gives the slightest toss to her pale waves, and admits, I want to get one album out and then really, really want my own clothing line!
