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

Champagne, Hats & High Tea

Yes, there was champagne (French, of course), hats (by Zuzana Vranovska, Serena Lindeman, Kerrie Stanley) and high tea at the InterContinental Rialto; and yet so much more. I strolled into the Alluvial last week expecting an intimate soiree – perhaps a glass of bubbles and a few pastries. Instead I

MSFW: Designer Series 1 ‘Gala’

We would expect nothing less than glamour and perhaps a hint of refined quirk from the collection of designers in Melbourne Spring Fashion Week’s Designer Series 1 ‘Gala’. The opening was exquisite and unexpected – feathered headwear designs by Richard Nylon accompanied by Toni Maticevski garments on dancers and Neo

Win tix to MSFW

Sing it with me; “It’s the most wonderful time of the year.” For me, Melbourne Spring Fashion Week is better than Xmas. I even get to give out presents now! Thanks to MSFW I have a double pass to give away to EVERY Designer Series show of the week held

Short & Sweet Style Wrap #41

Regular readers have probably noticed that I’m a fan of the hyper-local luxe-yet-ethical clothing label Bento by Samantha Hardman. I can’t wait to show you their Spring Summer 2011/12 collection, but in the meantime Bento is celebrating their launch at online shopping destination The Grand Social.  They’ve generously offered an

A little fashionable TLC

With Sarah Gale at the helm (looking amazing in Green with Envy’s in-house label Nicholas) along with the skills of stylist Philip Boon, the world-first tracksuit pant fashion show couldn’t help but be chic. Fashion supports Tracky Dack Day launched the fundraising event (to be held on the 1st July)

Fashion supports Tracky Dack Day

Now here’s a fashion term I never thought I’d write here. Next to thongs and Ed Hardy tees, tracksuit pants are probably the furthest item of clothing from haute couture (and so help you if they have ‘Juicy’ printed on your behind). The only things they are good for are

LMFF 2011: Runway 5

In a premium line up of designers, L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival Runway 5 debuted Winter collections dedicated to feminity, glamour and elegance. Looking effortlessly stunning in a strapless silk maxi, Australian actress Melissa George greeted the audience and thanked LMFF Director, Grant Pearce for selecting her as the festival’s Ambassador

Myer A/W 2011 Runway (+video)

An homage to classical elegance was encapsulated in Myer’s A/W11 launch. Jen Hawkins opened the show in a floor length Arthur Galan frock in vibrant red which ruffled and rouched its way from the right shoulder all the way to the ground. The standard wintry palette of blacks and greys was given

Song Spring Summer launch

Launching her summer collection at Eliza Baker, Valerie Gregori McKenzie’s label Song is a fusion of the designer’s native French style and her adopted Vietnamese lifestyle. Using natural fabrics and traditional techniques, Song is concerned with eco-credentials as many of Eliza Baker‘s stocked labels (which include Coven & Aurelio Costarella)
