Fabulous Nobodies

Who’s honouring me now? Aussie Edition

by Andy on September 22, 2009


Because flattery is awesome, here’s a point all about something great, Hide Your Arms! And by extension, me!

Australian fashion blog and store Fabulous Nobodies (or FABNOB for short) have crowned HYA as their top tee blog. I don’t like to put too much stock into these things, because if I actually got big-headed about these things instead of pretending to be big-headed about these things then I doubt people would enjoy reading this site as much as they do. This is probably a good point to say that there should be big things in this site’s future, I really am working on the redesign (really), and there is a designer working on the new logo, so hopefully the best t-shirt blog will also be the best looking. This won’t be happening immediately as I’m taking my annual trip to the South of France during October, but I do hope to keep the site running on at least a 50% schedule.



I’m going to be straight up with you, I have no idea who Alvaro Ilizarbe is, and when I got an e-mail from Fabulous Nobodies (FABNOB, who I also hadn’t encountered before, though they count me as a friend in their sidebar, so they must be good people) asking if it was ‘worthy of a mention on HYA’ I figured it wouldn’t be, because why would I point you towards an interview with someone I’d never heard of? But I was putting the cart before the horse, and I actually enjoyed the interview, and finding out about Alvaro’s clothing line, Freegums.


FABNOB, who apart from having a name that makes us Brits titter, seem to be trying to bring good non-Aussie brands to Australians, kind of like Electric Press are doing in the UK. At the moment they’ve got Dance Party Massacre, Seibei, Glamour Kills, Imaginary Foundation and Local Celebrity on their roster, amongst others, so if you’re Australian and sick of paying exorbitant shipping fees when buying from non-native brands, FABNOB would probably be worth a look.
