This week was set at Northpoint where we featured 7Seas Fishing, and Saffia chose an outfit that went with the fish!
The wonderful wearable fish pets that 7Seas Fishing rewards its fishers with, that is. You can see some here in the photograph with Saffia – the special blue Meta Makeover fish, and the fun Red Flying Fish, complete with bi-plane – not to mention the LOLcatfish.
“I knew I was going to be wearing some fish in the programme,” says Saffia, “and so I wanted to find an outfit that, while stylish, would be subdued enough to show off the fish. I knew I was in the studio for the first part, interviewing Jen and Secen Shikami – so it needed a system skirt. And I wanted something practical too, in case I started fishing!”
This comes in a variety of colours,” says Saffia, “and I love the white/black and pink/maroon combinations. But for this show, the black/grey was perfect – so that all the fish whizzing round me could be plainly seen – but when I took the fish off, I was still beautifully dressed!”
Saffia points out the fine detailing on the skirt that is so characteristic of Ivalde designs.
“And Nef has added a jacket layer to get that lovely high waist,” Saffia adds. “I love that – and I also love the little sculpties for each arm, which beautifully captures the effect of the sleeves being pushed up.”
After all, you don’t want to get your sleeves wet while you’re fishing!
