Red Carpet Runway at LMFF 2013

If it wasn’t the best show I’d seen in my decade of covering the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival, it came damn close. Bridal “fashion” shows are something I’d usually only recommend for the High Street, Armadale set. Yet LMFF’s Red Carpet Runway was world class in production; all the way

LMFF 2013 Opening event with David Jones

Reigning queen of prints and ‘It’ girl of the fashion design world, it’s a pleasure to discover Mary Katrantzou is just really damn lovely. From the minute you meet her she’s all smiles and openness  and I get the sense she was genuinely happy to visit our faraway fashion capital of

LMFF National Designer Award 2013

Over breakfast at Tiffany’s yesterday – and in a boon for Australian menswear design – From Britten was awarded the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival’s 2013 National Designer Award. Designers Tim and Alex Britten-Finschi carry on a heritage; their mother Linda Britten presented her gowns at LMFF on Monday in an opera-fuelled showcase. The

Country Road A/W 2013

Everything old is new again. It seems the design team at Country Road have been rifling through their (or their mother’s) deepest closets for inspiration. Not so much to recreate pieces, but to discover elements to apply to the modern wardrobe. That old silk scarf is the starting point for

Lookbook: Kathryn Beker ‘Vargtimmen’ 2013

Watch out; things are about to get a little bit eerie around here… Kathryn Beker makes a welcome return with her limited edition ready-to-wear 2013 collection which she has dubbed ‘Vargtimmen’. The translation from Swedish is ‘hour of the wolf’, apparently that delicate time between night and dawn when most people

Jasu selects StyleMelbourne as a StyleMaker

So the kitty has been out of the Chanel bag for a while, but this week it’s my turn to be featured as one of Jasu’s Stylemakers. You may remember the new online luxury shopping portal recently whisked me away for a fashion shoot adventure to Broome? Today I can

Bassike opens in Melbourne

We should have more events held on weekend mornings if the latest boutique opening is anything to go by. I truly don’t mind the dilemma of choosing whether to celebrate with a Chai latte or a glass of Veuve Clicquot (in a short-lived attempt at being virtuous I went with
