Lookbook: Kuwaii ‘Regalia’ A/W 2013

With the impending arrival of Will and Kate’s progeny and Naomi Watts’ Princess Diana movie (both due in a few months) it’s probable gossip mag readers’ fascination with the monarchy will return with a vengence this year.

Sneak peek: Kuwaii ‘Landscape’ Spring Summer 2012-13

Having recently returned from Hawaii, I blame familiarity with the label ‘Kuwaii‘ for my utter inability to spell the locale ‘Kauai’ the whole time I was there (thank you Google). The mai tais may not have helped either. Happily Kawaii designer Kirsty Barber made it up to me with a

As Melbourne Spring Fashion Week’s final finale for the season grows imminent, official face of MSFW – Ashley Hart – uses her (also official?) lips to have a quick chat. Of all the looks the New York based model has been styled in this week she has a clear winner, “I

Runway 3 | Melbourne Fashion Festival | 2014

Oh deer! Leonard St’s fawn motif as seen at Runway 3 of the Virgin Australian Melbourne Fashion Festival is awfully cute. It seems to be the show for adorable features; who else but Gorman could make me crave my five daily veg (to wear as a print at least)? And
