WILKA SS17 “Ruff Love” Launch @ Live House, TREC

The Collection “Ruff Love” is the title of upcoming local brand Wilka’s Spring/Summer 2017 collection. Reminiscent of waves along the shore; soft, large ruffles take center stage.

Unpopular Opinion: Stop Trying To Make Festival Fashion Happen

I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty boring. I rarely go out to festivals, so maybe I don’t understand the hype. When magazines and online editorials tell me to “get my look festival-ready”, my immediate reaction is to scoff because I can’t exactly yell expletives at a static webpage. With Rockaway coming up, I’m pretty sure girls (and boys) are combing through their inspiration boards to come up with the best outfit for return of the festival but me? I don’t get it.
