The Eternal Headonist | Now Open

Love Lotus. The Eternal Headonist

“Hats will change the way you think about yourself, they will change the way other people see you. You need courage to wear a hat nowadays because hats are a commitment. People will look at you – they’ve got eyes – and when they look at you with a hat

Runway 1 | Melbourne Spring Fashion Week 2014

Jasongrech & Richard Nylon MSFW 2014

It has been a bit of tumultuous time for couture designer Jason Grech of late. When creating the current ‘Birds of Prey’ range he reveals “I was in a dark sort of place, it’s not my old, bright, cheery, collection.” In the designer’s own words the collection is “majestic, a

MSFW | Designer Runway 1 | 2013

Theatre. That’s the term that sums up the opening designer runway at Melbourne Spring Fashion Week for 2013. From the doll-like musicians that tunefully accompanied each designer showing, to Richard Nylon’s finale of glow-in-the-dark, head-in-the-clouds, can’t-even-call- them-millinery creations, MSFW this year kicked off with the very best kind of drama.

Terrariums by Lulu and Angel, exotic and carnivorous plants, tiny potted succulents and purple chillis

Spring Racing Carnival 2012 Wrap

After six weeks and 14 articles (this one makes 15) the beginning of the end of Spring Racing Carnival for me started on Derby Eve. And like so many good things it started with celebratory champagne. The bubbles at Moet’s annual Derby Eve party we served in golden goblets which

DressCode: Derby Day 2012

Recovering from a thrilling Derby Day yesterday; I didn’t actually touch a drop, it was just an epic party. Gregarious Italian designer Roberto Cavalli made a splash in the Lavazza birdcage marquee (from where I report live on fashion, food and style during the carnival), but I was just as

MSFW: Designer Series 1

I observed crowd-favourite Gwendolynne Burkin sitting across from me in the front row at Melbourne Spring Fashion Week‘s Designer Series 1 last night. As she bit her lip and leant over to whisper to seatmate and oft-time collaborator milliner Richard Nylon during her label’s showing, I had to wonder; what goes through
