Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.

What’s not to love? A novel trend, perfectly presented

“What’s great about this country is that America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest. You can be watching TV and see Coca-Cola, and you know that the President drinks Coke, Liz Taylor drinks Coke, and just think, you can drink Coke, too. A Coke is a Coke and no amount of money can get you a…

15 outfits from Lisbon: street style roundup

ModaLisboa is as relaxed as the city it takes place in. Far removed from the madding crowds and breathless anticipation of the “big four” fashion weeks, it takes over a small corner of Lisbon with minimal fanfare and a chilled-out vibe that only the Portuguese can seem to truly master. The street style, for the most part, is reflective. From show attendees to off duty…

A backward glance: at ModaLisboa

Sometimes it’s when you see the back of an outfit that it truly stands out to you. Like this one at ModaLisboa yesterday: there was the leather harness detail, and of course the braid. Such detail just calls for an over-the-shoulder glance.

A woman’s destiny is to be herself

Touched by rising tensions in the Middle East, Filipe Faisca sent a message of women’s rights down his ModaLisboa runway. “In spite of all their constraints,” echoed the show notes, in a quote by Cristina H. Alves, “women are the epitome of the world’s freedom, of life’s sensuality and effective change. From their apparent submission there’s a bright light of immense power being born. Women…

Chasing the sun in vibrant bikinis: Cia Maritima

“Follow the Sun” was the motto of Cia Maritima for spring / summer 2015, and it made sense: these were swim pieces of such vibrant optimism they seemed to flat-out refuse even the remotest possibility of a cloudy day. The collection featured 19 ethnic-inspired prints, with tropical and Peruvian prints as the highlights. Unique shapes saw folded-down waistlines mimicking an unzipped wetsuit, short-length bodysuits, and…

Striped: Luis Borges off duty at ModaLisboa

I first shot Luis Borges at last season’s ModaLisboa, standing out from the crowd courtesy his unique sense of personal style. The same could be said for Luis yesterday at day 1 of the Lisbon fashion week’s spring 2015 edition. Bold stripes, oversized cuts and a hint of gold jewellery were all so right for that modelesque face and cool fuzz of black hair.

Anonymous Pocahontas: at Joaquim Correia

I wish I could tell you exactly what was going on in the mind of Joaquim Correia when he breathed this unusual collection into being, but alas I did not get a chance to ask. On the runway at ModaLisboa his small regiment of uniformly platinum bobbed models seemed to fall somewhere between Pocahontas and fame-shy pop singer Sia. Faces were obscured but midriffs and…

Pretty is Keepsake’s dresses plus a bed of flowers

Australian label Keepsake have a knack for frocks that are feminine without being too girly. A frill here, a flounce there, a digital print or a uniquely cut neckline… it’s the little unexpected twists that give even the simplest pieces a lust-worthy edge. The brand’s “Inflorescence” collection couldn’t be better represented than it is with this editorial. It involves beds of luscious fresh flowers, after…

Behind-the-scenes at the ModaLisboa T.V. spot filming

The camera crew were crammed into the narrow streets of Alfama – Lisbon’s old town. The dressing room was a makeshift space at the back of an old hall filled with the sleeping remains of the Santo Antonio Festival floats. One scene, the final scene, sprawled everything out into the open atop the Miradouro das Portas do Sol, with Lisbon in all her weathered glory…
