Hey, gidday mates! Following on from my conversation with Kat Irlin last week, I sat down with my friend and fellow blogger Justin Livingston to chat about the reality of life as an Instagram all star.

Hey, gidday mates! I flew back to New York from Paris last Monday, and I was joined onboard by a couple of cool Californian designers named Ant De Padovane and Joshua Willis, who’d just been showing at Project Paris.

The following conversation on New York VS LA, Mexican gangster style, and tacos took place 30,000 feet above the English Channel.Click to Continue!
