Miley Cyrus covers Vogue

For those who said that the whole Miley Cyrus twerking saga was not ‘good girl gone bad’ but rather a case of an entertainer attempting to distance herself from her Disney moulded image, now is probably your time to gloat. Right now, the fashion industry loves Miley Cyrus. That should come as no surprise – the fashion industry loves stories of reinventions. And reinventing herself,…

Instamoments: fashionising our way through 2013

From Melbourne to Marrakech, the team behind Fashionising.com certainly did a lot of … fashionising in 2013. Along the way we snapped plenty of photos, some even made it to our respective Instagram accounts: @fashionising, @taniabraukamper, and @ajbar7. So as we ease ourselves through the first day of 2014, here’s a selection of the times and travels of Fashionising.com’s editors across 2013 (which, admittedly, consisted…

Gisele woos for Juergen Teller’s camera

There’s oft referenced interview in which then-24 year old model Gisele Bundchen declared that she “would never be naked in a fashion picture.” Time and time again, Gisele has proved herself wrong. Impressively so – few figures match the toned proportions that Gisele has reached. Necessarily so – for what is modern fashion without nudity? Yet Gisele’s body work has never been prolific and has,…

Photo diary: Phuket around Sri Panwa; November 2013

Postcards from a fashioniser around Sri Panwa. By Daniel P Dykes. You know that a holiday destination is good when Mother Nature decides to be the polar opposite of what you had dreamed of, and yet you still enjoy your time there. With a week’s vacation planned at Sri Panwa, a luxury resort west of Phuket, in my mind’s eye I knew how everything would…

Photo diary: Phuket around Aleenta; November 2013

Postcards from a fashioniser around Aleenta. By Daniel P Dykes. The mention of Phuket, Thailand, is likely to conjure up images beautiful beaches and exquisite islands. Or perhaps, depending on your youth, cheap bars and raucous clubs. Head north out of Phuket, however, and stick to the West of the mainland and you’ll soon find yourself in Phangnga. Here I stayed at Aleenta Resort having…

Spring 2014 makeup trends & tutorials

The spring / summer 2014 fashion trends are just one part of the change in season, and as our wardrobes change so too do our hairstyles and beauty looks. The spring runways were filled with a variety of makeup trends: from bright, optimistic summer lipsticks to dark kohl lined eyes, from the retro to the grunge. After the break, a round-up of the key trends…

Candice Swanepoel: the hottest Minnie Mouse you’ll ever see

The priceless subtitle of i-D magazine’s winter 2013 edition probably says just as much about the issue’s content as it does about Candice Swanepoel. More or less known as the fitspo supermodel, if ‘the body‘ moniker wasn’t already the property of Elle Macpherson it’s likely that you’d start seeing it liberally applied to Candice.

Paisley for men: your new winter print staple

Men’s florals aren’t uncommon but they are the domain of casual wear. Summer 2013’s fashion was heavy in floral prints for guys – you could buy the look in everything from bomber jackets to garish suits. For winter though, florals for men are mostly a thing of fashion past. Paisley is your winter 2013 fashion print staple for men.

Picking a hair colour for the new season

I’ve alluded to this before, but now let me put pen to paper, or at least fingers to keyboard, and come out and say it. Every year Fashionising.com works hard to provide you with inspiration for the year’s trends, hence along with the hair trends for fall 2013 and winter 2014, we’re currently putting together the take on spring 2014’s hairstyles as well. But hairstyles…

A fashioniser’s guide to Marrakech

We’ve already shared some of the beauty of the area and its surrounds in our photo diary from Morocco, but when a fashioniser finds themselves in Marrakech (alternatively known as Marrakesh – both spellings are correct), what should they do and where should they go? Away from the most common of tour guides, away from the polish of those guides focussed only on fabricated luxury…
