Fame Agenda x Darbotz


The State Library of Victoria was almost invaded by bizarre creatures last week as Fame Agenda unleashed its latest creations. When the local label’s founder Monica Lim meet Jakartan street artist Darbotz on a Melbourne visit she was immediately inspired. This collection works in recurring motifs from the artist’s work

Whitehouse Institute of Design Melbourne Fashion Graduates 2013


Skeleton onesies, red druids and plastic fantastic parkas; the expressions of fashion from Whitehouse Institute of Design‘s 2013 Melbourne graduates were certainly unpredictable! Though a handful of these budding designers have already had catwalk experience during the student runway at MSFW a few months ago, this was the first time

Hello Melbourne Summer

A Melbourne Summer should be filled with plenty of time spent at the polo, lying on beaches and perched on stools at open air bars. So when it came to celebrating the new social season about to arrive in town; the rooftop deck overlooking St Kilda’s foreshore at Captain Baxter

Viva by Paspaley Pearls

Where else to showcase a new collection of  pearl jewellery but in a place where the sea is mere metres from lapping at our toes? Last month Paspaley Pearls launched their new ‘Viva’ collection, draping the gemstones on a clutch of oceanic sirens dressed in head-to-toe white. This season their

Countdown to the Caulfield Cup Spring Racing Carnival 2013

Roses and equines and hats; oh my! At their gala launch, the Melbourne Racing Club recently announced the talented and down-to-earth (as well as beautiful – darn her) Erika Heynatz as their style ambassador for Caulfield‘s 2013 Spring Racing Carnival. It’s a safe bet that she will wear the role  -

MSFW | Resort Runway | 2013

Grab your kaftan, a pina colada and the nearest pool-boy as Melbourne Spring Fashion Week takes a quick detour to the tropics. For the first time MSFW experimented with a Resort-focussed runway. Scuba dresses, bikinis, boardshorts and a lot of bronzed skin were accessorised with Dani M and Goldie jewels and capped

MSFW | Designer Runway 4 | 2013

A local spirit came out to play at Melbourne Spring Fashion Week’s final Designer Runway show for 2013. Things to make us smile when we see Melburnians wearing them around town this season; Honor Among Thieves’ simple logo and pineapple sweaters, Gorman and Kuwaii’s simplified sketchy prints, Carly Hunter’s ode

MSFW | Designer Runway 3 | 2013

Melbourne Spring Fashion Week‘s Designer Runway 3 was a case of extremes. On one hand we have Akira’s gently fluid shapes and prints and Yeojin Bae with restrained details (in a victorious return for her mainline collection; who knew neoprene could look so delicate?) This is balanced with the bold, as

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

MSFW | The Men’s Collections | 2013

Yesterday lucky gents enjoyed an entire day devoted to menswear as Melbourne Spring Fashion Week temporarily became MSFW Mr. This Spring, savvy hommes should add something vaguely 1950′s inspired, something quirky and a little touch of leather to their ensembles. A daring suit – for weddings, races, anything – never
