As Melbourne Spring Fashion Week’s final finale for the season grows imminent, official face of MSFW – Ashley Hart – uses her (also official?) lips to have a quick chat. Of all the looks the New York based model has been styled in this week she has a clear winner, “I

Runway 2 | Melbourne Spring Fashion Week 2014

As budding songstress Jezzabell Doran (you may have heard her work with Flume’s Sleepless) charmingly recited her own poetry,  Neo Dia‘s Summer 14/15 collection took to the MSFW runway featuring woven leather, painterly pink and the surprising addition of cork-board. Post-show I coaxed one half of the label, Gavin Lowes, to

I’ve never been to Paris. How remiss of me (it’s on the to-do list). But I can drink Champagne, eat croissants and say “oui” with the best of them! The nation that spawned Chanel, YSL, Eva Green, the Breton shirt and much of the backdrop in Audrey Hepburn’s oeuvre is

Portsea Polo 2014: Best Dressed

Move over preppy sweaters drapped over gents’ shoulders. Bowties are the latest trend at the Jeep Portsea Polo alongside fedoras for both sexes. The best people-spotting was found amid Peroni’s Italian-style piazza (including new Miu Miu face Bella Heathcote) and the best vantage point to watch the chukkas was the

MSFW | Designer Runway 2 | 2013

The second designer runway at Melbourne Spring Fashion Week 2013 made a strong argument that every day is worth dressing up for. Newly added to my too-many-clothes-not-enough-lifetimes list are Livia Arena’s punched-out pants, Neo Dia’s green-tinged moto-jacket and a YB J’Aime cape (always say ‘yes’ to capes). I may not

Olivia Palermo | Icons of Style 2013 |

I must admit, socialite, subject of an entire style website and soon to be Miss Vogue Australia model, Olivia Palermo was unknown to me until her elfin face began popping up amid fashion week street style pages. Her socialite upbringing and “reality” television history are only vaguely referenced these days, as

Oscar & Wild goes to the races

One of my favourite sayings is attributed to fashion boutique Oscar & Wild‘s famous namesake. The oft-quoted novelist Oscar Wilde said “you can never be over-dressed or over-educated”. This is especially true for the Spring Racing Carnival where the best-dressed punters of the day are thoughtfully styled (as for the

MSFW: Designer Series 2

Yeojin Bae has been tailed by a Korean film crew all day at Melbourne Spring Fashion Week. They are filming her for an upcoming documentary. While she yearns to “change into her undies and get cosy on the couch” it doesn’t show. The designer bubbles excitedly about her many projects;

LMFF: Runway 1

L’Oreal Paris Runway 1 at the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival showcased Australia’s established labels (plus one welcome New Zealand interloper). Carl Kapp presented 40’s-style femme fatales in anything but a noir colour palette. Karen Walker jumped a decade forward with 50’s styling; hair-scarves and cats eye sunglasses galore. Nicola Finetti
