MSFW 2012 Opening Party

Why have we not thrown the Melbourne Spring Fashion Week opening party at the Melbourne Town Hall before? Dressed in swathes of chiffon and punctuated with near-neon flowers, the space felt intimate but no less grand. An operatic trio, a pipe-organ performance and acrobatics enforced the luxurious atmosphere at the opening soiree.

The Great Exhibitionist

How grand a title is ‘The Great Exhibitionist and his Private Views’, as Ted Baker‘s Spring Summer collection has been dubbed? It sounds like a fascinating novel. Perhaps it’s a book you would look simply marvellous reading while laying back in the grass on a summer’s day as you sport

Artisans in Fashion

On Saturday 18th August from 11am to 4pm the Artisan Open Day around Melbourne will provide a rare glimpse into how fashion designers really work.

Melbourne Spring Fashion Week MSFW 2012

In 2012, Melbourne Spring Fashion Week celebrates its 18th birthday. And they’ve invited, not the traditional one, but four “faces” to the party.

Chanel, Versace, Karl Lagerfeld, Akira Isogawa and Christian Lacroix have all turned their hand to costumes for the stage over the past century. Richard Nylon and Toni Maticevski designed headpieces and costumes

Lookbook: Lui Hon ‘Whispering Roots’ A/W 2012

I had been meaning to share this collection by Lui Hon with you many months ago when it first graced my inbox. Amid springtime frivolities it seemed premature to be speaking of the upcoming Autumn Winter season. Now the chill seems no less distant, but the images have been calling


The word ‘playful’ comes up often when discussing Australian jewellery designer Stefano Canturi‘s latest collection ‘Captivo’. Italian for ‘captive’ I imagine the title refers to being captivated by the vibrant colours the new collection is drenched in. From beneath a blackened shroud at last night’s literally sparkling launch a set of cocktail

Birds of a feather dance together

I mentioned the opening bird-like dance number at Melbourne Spring Fashion Week as one of my personal highlights of the festival. It was an abstract of a new performance by BalletLab entitled ‘Aviary’. I’m off to the ballet for the very first time (shameful, I know) this evening to see

Flemington’s Spring Fashion Lunch

Does this year seem to be galloping along in an attempt to race by as fast as Black Caviar? It’s only a few weeks until the Spring Racing Carnival hits its manic peak for the Melbourne Cup. For the first time ever I’ll be at Flemington for all four of

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
