Behind the Scenes: Friend of Mine ‘Gypset’ Spring Summer 13-14

It’s easy to envision Teale Tabot’s nomadic lifestyle; flitting – as her Friend of Mine label is wont to take her – from Melbourne to Bali to New York to Los Angeles. Her Spring Summer 2013-14 collection is apparently inspired by the class of bohemians, not afraid of henna ink or falling

L’Oreal Paris Runway 6 at LMFF 2013

In an era when many fashion labels feel as though there is little choice but to send their designs overseas to get made, Cylk are impressively turning the tables. At the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival they presented a capsule collection that was entirely fashioned in Australia! The innovative label also

Mimco for LMFF 2013

Jewellery and accessories label Mimco presented its first seasonal collection for 2013 amid a flurry of rose petals during the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival. The ‘Paradise Battalion’ range is apparently inspired by a utopian idea of the future; a world full of lovers in which beauty has triumphed over evil

House of Baulch Pop -Up

With a sultry shimmy from a bevvy of dancer friends, Kathryn Baulch’s House of Baulch jewellery line launched a pop-up shop in the CBD this week. Situated within the Heading Out Hair and Beauty Salon & Day Spa (fitting, considering the event’s official LMFF off-site runway status and Heading Out’s

Kookai ‘The Colour of Night’ A/W 2013

New York based model Nicole Trunfio returned to our shores to front Kookai‘s campaign for a second time and headed up the label’s catwalk for their Autumn Winter 2013 showcase last week. The collection, entitled ‘The Colour of Night’, relies heavily on a vampy look of hip-hugging skirts, skin-tight dresses

Lookbook: Megan Park A/W 2013

“When I was conceiving the idea of this Winter collection I really went into my archives – I’ve got a huge archive of vintage and antique textiles and embroideries” explains Megan Park of her just released collection. The range draws inspiration from the Victorian era through to the 1930s, which results in

Lookbook: Jolet A/W 2013

On my desk, framed in silver, sits a photograph taken of a metropolitan skyline at night snapped while on a holiday to Japan. Its twinkling skyscraper lights are blurred but I love the abstractedness. The photograph is still unmistakably Tokyo. So when I spied Jolet‘s Autumn Winter 2013 collection I

Cylk ‘I Wake Up Dreaming’ A/W 2013

Cylk Autumn Winter 2013 fashion collection

I’ve a growing appreciation of model Louise Van De Vorst ever since she starred in the Tomorrow’s Lovers fashion film last year. Now she is the face of Cylk’s A/W 2013 campain for the label’s soon-to-be-released ‘I Wake Up Dreaming’ collection. Full of mossy greens, claret wine reds and fuzzy,

Fame Agenda ‘Donkey Skin’ Resort 2013

Released in Indonesia last year, Melbourne label Fame Agenda‘s ‘Donkey Skin’ range is soon to be released here as a resort collection. The unusual title refers to the English translation of Peau d’Âne; a 1600’s fairy tale written by French wordsmith Charles Perrault. The tale is like a twisted, potentially incestuous, pre-Cinderella story

Hardwick ‘Range 2’ A/W 2013

Last week I stepped into Hardwick‘s sun-dappled Brunswick atelier to preview the second collection from the burgeoning ready-to-wear label. After a successful début last Spring Rebekah Hardwick (who oversees the range alongside co-conspirator Annaliese Bridgeman), says launching the label was something of “an indulgence”. One that looks to pay off as season two expands
