It’s StyleMelbourne’s 7th Birthday today…and also its last. Time to break out the cake and Champagne for this dual occasion. I’m excited and, of course, a little bit wistful about it. The evolution of StyleMelbourne will be revealed very soon. Stay tuned to Instagram for the big reveal (Facebook or Twitter too). While

The New Edit: July/August 2015


Here’s a wrap up of the latest Australian fashion and lifestyle labels, Melbourne spaces and other objets du jour that you should know about this month. – The cult Cool Hunter website comes to real life!

Style Guide: Armadale

The best of Armadale
