DressCode: Derby Day 2012

Recovering from a thrilling Derby Day yesterday; I didn’t actually touch a drop, it was just an epic party. Gregarious Italian designer Roberto Cavalli made a splash in the Lavazza birdcage marquee (from where I report live on fashion, food and style during the carnival), but I was just as

Yellowglen House launches at Flemington

Doesn’t Yellowglen House sound like a stately manor? Like something fit for an appearance on Downton Abbey? In fact it’s a golden-gated, three-storey marquee at Flemington reserved for those lucky few racegoers who receive a gilded key from Yellowglen’s trackside scouts. It officially launched this past weekend as inclement weather determined

Jasu selects StyleMelbourne as a StyleMaker

So the kitty has been out of the Chanel bag for a while, but this week it’s my turn to be featured as one of Jasu’s Stylemakers. You may remember the new online luxury shopping portal recently whisked me away for a fashion shoot adventure to Broome? Today I can

DressCode: Spring gets electrified

Last week, Lady Melbourne and I launched a Spring/Summer season project called the Electric Lounge amidst the high fashion precinct of Westfield’s luxury Doncaster centre. Our photographs and curated outfits will be on display for a couple more weeks here and in Sydney if you are wandering by while undertaking some retail

My Australian Fashion quest + the very best kind of Garage Sale!

Some people strive to wear all vintage fashion or all sustainable fashion. You may have heard Aleisha McCormack of The Circle and Love Local Fashion‘s bid to only wear Australian brands on air? It’s something I’ve been thinking about for a little while so… As of now I promise at least nine

Florals for Autumn / Winter

Who says florals are sole domain of springtime? I’ve been more enchanted by the relationship between flowers and fashion since the live floral adornments at Nevenka’s recent fashion festival show and this shoot on Fashionising. Though it seems many Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia attendees are already bemoaning the prevalence of the floral

LMFF: Autumn Winter 2012 Wishlist

Now that the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival has wrapped – bar the wonderful cultural program – I find it valuable to look back over the week (or rather the nine days) that was for Winter wardrobe inspiration. Below I dish up my personal inspiration from LMFF on future DIY projects,

LMFF: Runway 3

Gorman opened L’Oreal Paris Runway 3 and it fast became all about that onesie. The festive, pompom-hooded creation (I wouldn’t mind it as a more versatile two piece) is bound for both ski lodges and music festivals everywhere. Next up was Limedrop’s soothing palette of teal and tizzy prints. I

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

Caulfield Cup Carnival 2011 Launch

Melbourne Racing Club launched their Spring racing carnival campaign for 2011 a little while ago but I got so wrapped up with fashion week and a few special projects that it’s taken me a little while to share this with you. I’ll be heading to Guineas Day this Saturday to
