Spa Country Style

They say it’s all about the journey not the destination. Not so, when you’re in desperate need of tranquillity and are headed to Spa Country for the very first time. An easy highway drive past sun-bleached grasslands, rolling hills and woodlands recently brought me to Daylesford and Hepburn Springs for an all

DressCode: Sequins & Neon part deux

High SocieTEA

The result of sunshine, good company and a glass of something adult to sip can prove greater than the sum of its parts. The combination was almost alchemic this afternoon as Werribee Mansion officially launched its version of high tea; SociaTEA. The venue is a luxurious setting in which to

MSFW: City Square Runway 3 Review

Review has fully embraced one of Spring’s major trends – pastels – and reinforced the theme’s sweet as pie image with a sprinkling of pleats, bows and lace overlays. This season, I feel as if Review has found a happy medium in the space between fellow feminine labels Forever New

Fan(girling) Bingbing

The merriment, voyeurism and froth of Cannes has recently come and gone. Though I know little of her on-screen CV, I was particularly stuck by the unique red carpet style of Chinese actress and singer Fan Bingbing. She seems at once quirky, regal and uninhibited with her fashion choices. The closest I’m likely

L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival Top 13

I like to scour the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival program for gems; those events, exhibitions and showcases away from the spotlight of the main L’Oreal Paris runways. Usually I can edit them down to the top 10 essentials but this year the list quickly topped 20, then 30. Finally, after

Spring Fashion Amongst the Vines

This weekend is set to be sunny as Spring finally hits town. What better way to celebrate than by viewing the refined Summer 2012 collections of two of my favourite local labels Pamela Usanto and Violet & I? Amid an exquisite boutique winery setting, Pamela Usanto will present her ‘Tres Jolie’

Melbourne Spring Fashion Week 2011: Top 10

The Grand Hyatt’s ‘Residence’ space was transformed into a Springtime tableau last week courtesy bouquets of lisianthus, roses and orchids: a fitting setting for the 2011 Melbourne Spring Fashion Week (MSFW) program launch. As you have probably heard by now model Sophie Van Den Akker has been unveiled as the face of the festival
