Yuge Yu ‘Echoes’ Spring Summer 2012/13

It was a sudden career change – from criminal law to the ragtrade – for budding designer Yuge Yu. I wonder which industry has scarier characters? The switch was apparently prompted by a break in at the Melbourne/Byron Bay designer’s own home. No longer does Yuge have to defend the bad

A GIANT Celebration

Throwing a Xmas party for a modelling agency must be pretty simple; a beautiful guest-list is guaranteed! Such it was for Giant Management‘s end-of-year celebrations at Mon Bijou as the sun over Melbourne set last week. Fashion industry types like photographer Ed Purnomo, designer Jolet Ucchino and a rainbow eye-lidded Lady Petrova

She seems at once quirky, regal and uninhibited with her fashion choices. The closest I’m likely

Fin boutique opens

Fin boutique

As a swimwear designer, Roxanne Green hasn’t been fazed with the inability to use her own name for her designs. As she explains Roxy, the label named after her by her Quicksilver-founding father, “has been around since I was six or seven so I’m used to it…I’m not the kind

‘Chain Mail: True Self’ art x fashion exhibition

Finally chain mail is being used for something useful other than scaring 9 year old children and scamming nannas out of their pocket money. For the ‘Chain Mail: True Self‘ exhibition various artists and fashion designers were sent blank canvases via the post (in ode to the GPO’s origins) which
