DressCode: Derby Day 2012

Recovering from a thrilling Derby Day yesterday; I didn’t actually touch a drop, it was just an epic party. Gregarious Italian designer Roberto Cavalli made a splash in the Lavazza birdcage marquee (from where I report live on fashion, food and style during the carnival), but I was just as

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

Brunch with a bunch of Bright Young Things

They had me at “brunch” (which for me is a verb rather than a noun). The wonderful folk at Art Series Hotels are supporting the Caulfield Cup Carnival this year and – in the spirit of the racing season and championing the artistic community – decided to host a pre-Guineas

DressCode: Caulfield Guineas Day

Lunch with the Inner Circle

Pre-MSFW I flew to Sydney to be a ‘lady who lunches’ with the Inner Circle family (a group of fashion-thinking online types curated by Sunglass Hut). A beautiful flower-strewn cafe in Surrey Hills called Orto was our destination (‘Orto’ translates to garden from Italian; coincidentally an unrelated place with the same

DressCode: Caped Crusader

Such a beautiful evening last night at the first Designer Series runway show for Melbourne Spring Fashion Week 2012. I think the weather may be against us at the Melbourne Town Hall tonight though! What I wore; White Suede cape jacket, my little ode to Gwyneth Paltrow’s Tom Ford number

DressCode: Spring gets electrified

Last week, Lady Melbourne and I launched a Spring/Summer season project called the Electric Lounge amidst the high fashion precinct of Westfield’s luxury Doncaster centre. Our photographs and curated outfits will be on display for a couple more weeks here and in Sydney if you are wandering by while undertaking some retail
