Want to know who’ll be on the Victoria’s Secret runway this year?

The Victoria’s Secret show 2011 will be on the runway in a matter of hours. Anticipated for it’s energy, entertainment value and star power as much as for it’s lingerie, the question isn’t just what will be on the catwalk but who. So who can we expect to see bounding down the runway this year, wings fluttering, eyelashes batting, kisses blowing with targeted determination towards…

Myer: what to expect in Spring

If nothing else, then Australia’s departmental store battle has proved one fact – get a stunning model to prance down the catwalk and you’ll get smiling faces walking out the door. With a glitzy show, department store giant Myer did just that as it unveiled its spring / summer 2011 offering in Sydney last night. Brand ambassador and face of the store Jennifer Hawkins led…

sass & bide launch at Myer

For a good part of the year the focus on Australian label sass & bide has been on anything but their clothing; instead speculation on their business strategies took precedence over the brand’s creative direction. The ongoing cold war between Australia’s biggest department chain stores moved on to a new level when sass & bide decided to effectively swap teams, severing an exclusive contract with…

Incu women’s opens in Melbourne

Word has it that Incu’s men’s store on Flinders Lane has always been heckled by the fairer sex. Having long implored the birth of a sister store, their prayers are finally answered; demand has been met, and Incu women’s has bloomed in Melbourne. If what’s missing from your wardrobe is a perfectly effortless yet immaculately constructed Rag & Bone shirt dress, or perhaps a pair…

3 designers to watch: Graduate Fashion Week

It’s no secret that the universities of London have been churning out exceptionally talented fashion designers for years, from Alexander McQueen and Hussein Chalayan in the nineties to the more recent crop of ascending stars like Holly Fulton and Gareth Pugh. So it’s no wonder all eyes were trained on the graduate collections on show this week in search of tomorrow’s stars. I went down…

Track pants and TLC for Kids

Track suits, tracky dacks, track pants… call them what you will, but they and I do not to together. I own a single pair, they accompany me to the gym and home again only to be promptly hidden, their very existence a point of frequent denial. Comfortable they may be, but visually pleasing? Seldom. Australia’s fashion industry tried its hand at improving the visual appeal…

Melbourne event: fashion for a cause, TLC for Kids

Fashion and ‘tracky dacks': two word you don’t often hear in the same sentence. But this Thursday, June 9, charity TLC for Kids is hosting Fashion Supports Tracky Dack day, a huge soiree on the rooftop of Melbourne’s Whitehouse Institute that not only turns all that around but does so for a fantastic cause. Guests will be treated to a runway show featuring a rather…

Melbourne’s Mission 65 vintage event

Traveling up a short flight of stairs from Melbourne’s Chapel Street was akin to stepping back in time. For the stairs gave way to a floor space on which people decked out in vintage fashions, some not too dissimilar from those we’re expecting to make a comeback in the new year, did more than mill and swill, they cavorted, swanned and jitterbugged. All this post-war…

Upcoming Melbourne event: Mission 65

It’s not an era that we currently consider to be set for a fashion trend revival, but that doesn’t mean the 1940s made any less of an impact upon fashion than any other period. Yet when one imagines the era, particularly in this post-military fashion period, it’s hard to look beyond its contributions to all things austere – after all, it was the Second World…

Identity, philosophy, footwear: Ana Locking

For spring Ana Locking took the human body and turned it inside out, a theme with a certain grotesqueness though full of abstract beauty when applied to prints on shoes and dresses. Next up, however, Locking turns to something much less… physical. She turns to the notion of identity. Titled ‘STANCE’, her fall 2011 collection is about taking a standpoint, “the correct one for yourself,…
