Style Melbourne

Short & Sweet Style Wrap #18


Hall of Fame inductee, race and formal-wear designer Lisa Barron, has just opened her third store. It will be her first store in the city located at 234 Collins Street.

American label John Varvatos will be exclusively stocked at Harrolds (in Melbourne, at 101 Collins street) from this Spring Summer season. I’m thinking this is another luxurious alternative for mens’ racewear whether you like to be purely sophisticated or an individual out on the track.

We know Melbourne loves fashion and this just proves it. The L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival directly contributed almost $70 million to our economy this year and over 371,000 people attended an LMFF event.

Amanda McCarthy’s Leonard St opens in Mebourne Central on Level 2 – it is the second store to join her Prahran boutique filled with the streamlined, youthful sophistication of her Spring Summer 2010 collection.

Photographer Christian Blanchard has opened new website. Check out his work with Alice Burdeu for Mimco, the Perth Fashion Festival, Ford, Puma and Satch, among others.

The Melbourne Op Shop tours are coming to town – aiming to show you where the good places to shop are and how to pull together an ingenious outfit from pre-loved items. Tours by organisers Jenny, Jessica and Richmond take four to five hours and are divided into Inner West, East and Inner North locations. They’ve included some of their previous finds in the oufit images below and all pieces are under $1o. As an opening special they are offering tikets for a discounted $25 (you’ll need a valid public transport ticket too). Tours start 2nd September for up to groups of 10.

On the opposite end of the scale from op shop tours; Bonham and Goodman, who are the largest fine jewellery auctioneers in Australia, will be auctioning off two gorgeous pink Argyle diamonds from Western Australia for the very first time.  Just in case you have a spare odd half million dollars burning a hole in your pocket. The Melbourne auction happens on this Wednesday 26th August so if you are keen for a new investment or simply after the most fabulous engagement or cocktail ring you’d best check this one out fast.
