Gwendolynne at High Fashion, High Tea 2009

Gwendolynne is something of a Melbourne fashion icon. Well known for her intricate beading and elaborate detailing, each of her pieces is not just exquisite, but also timeless. On the runway at MSFW (Melbourne Spring Fashion Week) for High Fashion, High Tea 2009, Gwendolynne’s gowns were paired with equally beautiful headpieces by Richard Nylon.

While her offering at the Town Hall Designer Series Show 1 was more whimsical – with shorter hemlines and vibrant colours – Saturday’s show focused on the classically romantic; with slim silhouettes, sweeping trains, ruffles, bows, pearls and pleats.

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.
