The best of LMFF 2013

With just over a month to go until the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival returns, I’ve realised this will be my 10th year covering and sharing the festival with you (the past five years from this blog). My how a decade flies when you are having fun! To think nobody really

Top 20 Party Dresses

The silly season and summer in general call for some serious time spent in good company. Whether you’ll spend it sitting around a backyard fire on a balmy evening, talking your way into a Hamptons-esque beachside soiree or on a city rooftop sipping Manhattans, this time of year demands a

MSFW: Designer Series 1

I observed crowd-favourite Gwendolynne Burkin sitting across from me in the front row at Melbourne Spring Fashion Week‘s Designer Series 1 last night. As she bit her lip and leant over to whisper to seatmate and oft-time collaborator milliner Richard Nylon during her label’s showing, I had to wonder; what goes through

Globally they may dress for the polo

MSFW: Designer Series 2 ‘Boutique’

If you’re anything like me, you’ve been faithfully wearing your Melbourne black all through the colder months and are now expecting some inspiring bold colours and patterns for Spring/Summer. The second in the Designer Series shows at Melbourne Spring Fashion Week delivered just this. Obus Obüs and Gorman had bright,
