L’Oreal Paris Runway 3 at LMFF 2013

In her own words Yeojin Bae’s latest offerings for her label YB J’Aime is “chic, Parisian, tailored and seductive”. In this regard, the ‘Gypset’ collection continues Yeojin’s design legacy, only this time with a nod to a very refined version of the 70’s. No zany platforms here. It’s all drawstrings,

What to wear to the Polo

In Melbourne during the summertime, three major polo tournaments (at Albert Park, Werribee and Portsea) spring to life.  This “sport of kings” is certainly a social one; a mixture of spring racing and music festival frivolity that has not yet descended into debauchery. Globally they may dress for the polo

Melbourne Spaces: Inspirational Fashion Design

I was recently invited to share the fashion design destinations that inspire me for a soon-to-be-released e-book. The catch; I only have 3 hours in which to share all the wonderful places in Melbourne I always find myself wandering into! In celebration of the release of Hyundai‘s new design-focused Accent, I
