Sportsgirl’s Summer ’08 Launch

The team at Sportsgirl certainly know how to make a photographer work for a shot. Their recent (and very exclusive) sneak peek preview of their upcoming summer range was an all-dancing spectacular of colour and movement. The models cum dancers on the signature coloured stripe catwalk were interspersed with performers

Fashion Stakes Grand Final at Caulfield

After the excitement of the Caulfield Cup had just died down, we gathered our belongings and said (a very reluctant) goodbye to the luxurious Pegasus Marquee, and headed up to the Fashion and Entertainment precinct nearby to watch the final of the Chadstone Fashion Stakes. Of the 10 finalists (nine

BMW Caulfield Cup Day Style

Saturday was a day of glamour, excitement, champagne and from memory there were some thoroughbreds parading about amongst the human fillies as well. Upon entering the Pegasus Marquee, we were greeted by glasses of champagne and a delightful range of canapés, (the chicken sandwiches were delicious beyond words)! The Marquee

Recreate 2008 group collection parade

Recreate 08 set out to achieve a number of things; raise money for the Salvos, showcase some of the hottest up and coming designers and show some fashion loving people a great night. It did it all! Recreate 08 was held last Tuesday night at the beautiful venue of Ormond

Men’s Style Workshop at Galleria

Lady ‘Spring has Sprung’ launch

Somewhere tucked in a little laneway lies a little shop, a teeny boutique hugged closely by the stores adjoining it. All is cute in this place: from the satiny purple dresses hanging from the ceiling, to the girlish art drawn on the walls. Welcome to the loveliness of Lady. To

Kit Cosmetics Design Award Launch

Kit Cosmetics on Chapel Street invited us into a faraway land (think Enid-Blyton style) to launch their new range of nail polishes and lip glosses and to congratulate the young designer who created the artwork. Erin Morris is in her final year of honours in Graphic Design and won the

High Fashion, High Tea MSFW 2008

The charming team over at Fashionising contributed to the Melbourne Spring Fashion week official schedule with their event entitled High Fashion, High Tea. It ended up being the most relaxing event of the week and I was eternally thankful for that considering what a stressful week it had turned out

9th Annual Millinery Collection

The Regent Theatre took a break from its Wicked trade to serve canapés and champagne to bewitched hat aficionados among its gilded and frescoed halls. In low amber lighting, fantastical figures danced and flickered along the walls as the scent of Dior’s Hypnotic Poison on bejeweled grand dames wafted past.

Anna Campbell Spring Summer 08/09 Parade

Here’s another label to add to the ever-growing pack of local young designers who make me feel inadequate in the talent department. Anna Campbell unveiled her current Spring Summer 08/09 collection at Unlucky recently. I feel it is a big step up for the designer – her most impressive collection
