Melbourne Cup Day is synonymous with jockeys’ silks and blooming roses and this year more than ever we get have our way with colour. I met the lovely Lisa from Lady of Leisure millinery recently at a lunch and instantly admired her neon orange hat. She kindly sent me this

Following the Fashionista’s Guide

MSFW: Designer Series 4

Dressed from head to toe in skyblue with her label’s own red trench-coat thrown over the top, Kuwaii designer Kristy Barber looks like some kind of chic superhero as she sits front row at Melbourne Spring Fashion Week Designer Series 4. I interrupt Kristy’s critique of her own portion of the event

The cooler months need not be gloomy with Melburnians dressed in safe black yet again. Prahran retailers are asking us to be bold this year and embrace colour, lines and stripes, pattern and even a bit of romance, as Style Melbourne discovered at LMFF’s Famous for Fashion series: The Chapel

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

Style Spy: Jeep Portsea Polo 2012

It seemed much of Melbourne moved to Portsea this past weekend as the polo stole the limelight from mansion-like holiday homes and the glittering seaside setting. When it came to the main event the Jeep team just managed to steal the game from rival Stella Artois. Fashion-wise it was the
