DressCode: Melbourne Cup 2012

Melbourne Cup Day is synonymous with jockeys’ silks and blooming roses and this year more than ever we get have our way with colour. I met the lovely Lisa from Lady of Leisure millinery recently at a lunch and instantly admired her neon orange hat. She kindly sent me this

Top Hats

For every Richard Nylon, Paris Kyne, Kerrie Stanley or Peter Jago (or Philip Treacy to state the obvious) there’s a diligent hatmaker who is not yet a household name. I want to shine a light on a few slightly under-the-radar Melbourne milliners in case any of you were in need of some last

DressCode: Caulfield Cup 2012

There’s a silly superstition that wearing green is bad luck; something you certainly don’t want looming when it comes time for a flutter. Happily I was able to balance out this apparent bad juju by wearing a lucky symbol – an origami crane (made from real paper) by milliner Kerrie

DressCode: A rose by any other name

Fashion on the Field: Millinery Award 2011

Local milliner Rebecca Share has won the 2011 Millinery Award at Flemington with a curvy navy and red creation; almost a hat within a hat. Second was Mandy Murphy with a classic rose studded piece and thirdly Louise Macdonald’s design also mimicking flora. Both runners-up are also based in Melbourne which is

A Flight of Fancy with milliner Paris Kyne

Inspired by the illustrated “The Birds of Paradise” by Clifford B. Frith and Dawn W. Frith and children’s picture book “Feathers for Phoebe” by Rod Clement, Paris Kyne’s latest millinery collection looks towards the wonders of ornithology. On the fancy (and sun-drenched) terrace of Madame Brussels, just-as-fancy ladies transfixed viewers

Roll Up, roll up… to Catwalk Circus!

When it rolled into town earlier this week – rather than a big top – Catwalk Circus was housed under the ornate ceiling of the Melbourne Town Hall. And rather than golden-maned lions being tamed there was fierce fashion on show. Instead of caramel corn there were cocktails, instead of
