Portsea Polo 2014: Best Dressed

Move over preppy sweaters drapped over gents’ shoulders. Bowties are the latest trend at the Jeep Portsea Polo alongside fedoras for both sexes. The best people-spotting was found amid Peroni’s Italian-style piazza (including new Miu Miu face Bella Heathcote) and the best vantage point to watch the chukkas was the

MSFW | Designer Runway 3 | 2013

Melbourne Spring Fashion Week‘s Designer Runway 3 was a case of extremes. On one hand we have Akira’s gently fluid shapes and prints and Yeojin Bae with restrained details (in a victorious return for her mainline collection; who knew neoprene could look so delicate?) This is balanced with the bold, as

MSFW | Reflections | Behind the Scenes

Have you had a chance to watch ‘Reflections‘ the official fashion film for Melbourne Spring Fashion Week yet?

MSFW: Designer Series 2

Yeojin Bae has been tailed by a Korean film crew all day at Melbourne Spring Fashion Week. They are filming her for an upcoming documentary. While she yearns to “change into her undies and get cosy on the couch” it doesn’t show. The designer bubbles excitedly about her many projects;

MSFW: David Jones Racewear

Department store David Jones kicked off Melbourne Spring Fashion Week’s City Square series this afternoon in an ode to racewear. Emma Freedman and Jesinta Campbell presented a show in which shades of neon orange was calmed with cool blues upon the backs of model Samantha Harris and the faces of

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 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
