Day 25/365: First Ken Done Live (Spotted at Newtown Station)

Purple and yellow. Can you get more 80's, I ask you?!
This dress is from label, 'Counterpoint.' I think better to say the dress is made from, 'I stole the point from Ken Done.' (It's Inspiration Friday, remember.) And just when you think the dress is done, um, Done... it busts out pleats, and shoulder buttons:But look below for THE REAL NEWS. Yep, it's the first Ken Done live photo sent in by Scout. And the message on the email said, 'You can't see it in the photo, but the bottom of the KD bag still has the Vinnies (op shop) sticker on it... only $8!' (It's the bag on the person's lap BTW.)
Scout you just made my day!
Person in the photo, well Ken Done, you!

So c'mon y'all... KD photos for the year to come... jackie@goodfashionforgood.com

What Ken Be Done? said...

Well I tell you what, B.L., if my canteen lady looked like this when I was growing up, then it certainly would have helped me a whole lot more in my teenage years! Imagine being a fan of KD in the 90s... the times were changing, the dresses didn't do much to help anyone (go to '90210' if you want evidence)... and I was to young for pastiche...

Thanks for the comment! :-)

well the dress may not be much but the leggins are just like a pattern in one of my old Jenny Kee or Liz Gammel knitting books !!♥
