Blue Diamond Fashion Stakes 2011

Finally! The sun poured upon Caulfield racecourse‘s lawns on Saturday for what seemed like (and probably was) the first time this Spring/Summer Racing season.  And in good time too; as though we now have Autumn and Winter racing to look forward to they are marginally less fun to dress up

Magic 2011

I’ll be finishing up my official LMFF week with a touch of magic! Magic 2011 is WACCI’s (We’re Australian Creative Collective inc) gala fundraiser for the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre and features the only couture fashion show on the festival line up. Designs from Melbourne couturier Mathieu Salem and Dom

Werribee Races 2010

The sun shone on Werribee Racecourse this past weekend as Country Racing returned for the first time in several years after a major redevelopment of the track. And so did racing style. Country racing’s version of Fashions on the Field hunts for the best dressed ladies over the racing seasons.

Werribee Christmas Races

The races are not over yet! Forget Flemington, Caulfield and Moonee Valley; my attention now turns to the country races with its picnic atmosphere and lack of maddening hordes.

I find yet further Spring Carnival racewear inspiration from this show. Styled by Philip Boon, the runway featured two of my favourite models of the moment Kate Peck and Alice Burdeu. According to this showcase, it seems there is no middle ground trackside when it comes to style this season. Prints

Spring Racing Dresses A to Z

I adore spying ladies out on the lawns who dress creatively within the traditional rules of race-wear. This means if you have a strapless or spaghetti strapped dress you should remember to throw a great jacket or pretty bolero over your shoulders. If your hemline is creeping above the knee

Come Fly With Me

Students of Kangan Batman Tafe’s fashion, visual merchandising and millinery disciplines again took to Federation Square to show off their designs in an end of year parade.  Entitled ‘Come Fly With Me’, the show encompassed block summer colours, floral prints, fitted jackets and rarely a pair of pants in sight.

Fashion Remade Salon Show

It’s not often these days that wearing ‘Pretty Woman’ style opera gloves is fitting at a Melbourne social event; but kudos to the very chic young lady who pulled off the look at the Fashion Remade Salon Show at the Sofitel On Collins. The salon show was presented to coincide
