Fashion Capitals of the World runway

Part of LMFF’s cultural program, Fashion Capitals of the World invited recent graduates and fashion design students from the traditional design epicentres of Milan, Paris and London and emerging capital of Barcelona to share the runway with rising designers from Melbourne’s Australian Academy of Design. These young designers were overall

LMFF: Runway 2

Following a mini-lazer light show (ooh, look at the pretty lights) Bianca Spender opened Runway 2 at the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival with a pairing of neon yellow and navy. Seemingly everyone’s favourite Yeojin Bae was even more pared back than usual, relying on asymmetry and a fire-engine red for interest. I adored the


The word ‘playful’ comes up often when discussing Australian jewellery designer Stefano Canturi‘s latest collection ‘Captivo’. Italian for ‘captive’ I imagine the title refers to being captivated by the vibrant colours the new collection is drenched in. From beneath a blackened shroud at last night’s literally sparkling launch a set of cocktail

Champagne, Hats & High Tea

Yes, there was champagne (French, of course), hats (by Zuzana Vranovska, Serena Lindeman, Kerrie Stanley) and high tea at the InterContinental Rialto; and yet so much more.

Eat me!

Alas a case of the dreaded sniffles kept me away from Eat Street; an event that combines fashion and food for the Australian Childhood Foundation. This year’s theme was deliciously retro as designers and labels like Mimco, Fleur Wood, Megan Park and Willow stepped back in time to the 1950’s

Eat your heart out

Fashion is about to become even more delicious. The gluttonous gala event that is Eat Street returns for 2011 with a retro twist. On the evening of Tuesday 21st June, the Sofitel Melbourne on Collins (25 Collins Street, Melbourne) ballroom will be transformed into a 1950’s dream as 40 of our

MSFW: Designer Series 2 (+ video)

Aurelio Costarella delighted at Melbourne Spring Fashion Week’s Designer Series 2 runway by opening with a stunning, off the shoulder gown in ruffled, voluminous layers of latte and cream. Incorporated into the dress was a light orange corset with ruffle trimming, as the bodice became a focus. Shoulders and zips
