Runway 2 | Melbourne Fashion Festival | 2014

I like to think of the official Runway 2 at the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival as the more angelic sister to the first runway. Rather than leather, this show opts for lace and silk and beading. Hardwick was a pleasant surprise; who knew a spin-off of a bridal label

Red Carpet Runway at LMFF 2013

If it wasn’t the best show I’d seen in my decade of covering the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival, it came damn close. Bridal “fashion” shows are something I’d usually only recommend for the High Street, Armadale set. Yet LMFF’s Red Carpet Runway was world class in production; all the way

LMFF 2013 Opening event with David Jones

Reigning queen of prints and ‘It’ girl of the fashion design world, it’s a pleasure to discover Mary Katrantzou is just really damn lovely. From the minute you meet her she’s all smiles and openness  and I get the sense she was genuinely happy to visit our faraway fashion capital of

Alex Perry delved firmly into cocktail hour territory with mini-dresses and high-sheen. In a preview of his Red Carpet runway the following night, Toni Maticevski added frills

MSFW: Designer Series 1 ‘Gala’

We would expect nothing less than glamour and perhaps a hint of refined quirk from the collection of designers in Melbourne Spring Fashion Week’s Designer Series 1 ‘Gala’. The opening was exquisite and unexpected – feathered headwear designs by Richard Nylon accompanied by Toni Maticevski garments on dancers and Neo

Win tix to MSFW

Sing it with me; “It’s the most wonderful time of the year.” For me, Melbourne Spring Fashion Week is better than Xmas. I even get to give out presents now! Thanks to MSFW I have a double pass to give away to EVERY Designer Series show of the week held

A little fashionable TLC

With Sarah Gale at the helm (looking amazing in Green with Envy’s in-house label Nicholas) along with the skills of stylist Philip Boon, the world-first tracksuit pant fashion show couldn’t help but be chic. Fashion supports Tracky Dack Day launched the fundraising event (to be held on the 1st July)

Now here’s a fashion term I never thought I’d write here. Next to thongs and Ed Hardy tees, tracksuit pants are probably the furthest item of clothing from haute couture (and so help you if they have ‘Juicy’ printed on your behind). The only things they are good for are
