I’m excited and, of course, a little bit wistful about it. The evolution of StyleMelbourne will be revealed very soon. Stay tuned to Instagram for the big reveal. While the new

Advanced Style

Last night I encountered ‘Advanced Style’. The film, based on Ari Seth Cohen’s famously ground-breaking blog of the same name, is eye-opening, refreshing and full of warm moments as it explores fashion for the 50+ set.

Rachel Rutt for Wool and the Gang

Central Saint Martins students Aurelie Popper and Jade Harwood really like knits or “sexy stitch” as they put it. The Alexander McQueen and Balmain trained duo have founded a London label Wool and the Gang. Can you guess which 60’s funk band they are referencing in their label name? Each of WatG’s

WIN Fashiontrend Magazine’s new ‘Rapture’ Issue

I think this may be Fashiontrend Australia‘s best cover yet! That white blonde hair, a cover girl adorned with jewels from Swarovski’s new ‘Secret Treasures’ collection, seductive make-up, plus a bonus gift of the new Volum’Express Mega Plush mascara by Maybelline NY helps.  They tell me the new issue showcases “a
