The call for curvy: plus size model search reopens

If the adage that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes is overused, it’s only with good reason: never a truer thing was said. Even so, few luxury brands are willing to take the leap and embrace the fact. Simone Perele lingerie are an exception. Last year they launched their annual “Curvy Couture Model Search” in partnership with leading plus size model agency, BGM, and…

David Jones’ epic opener

The word epic probably sprang into many a mind as 300-odd outfits barrelled thick and strong down the runway at yesterday’s VAMFF (Melbourne Fashion Festival) opening show.

Lavender Palm: Tom Ford’s L.A in a bottle

Scents can be the olfactory manifestation of a single breed of flower, or of a whole garden of botanicals. They can evoke a particular mood. Or they can be a place, bottled up and captured like the simultaneous memory of all the sights and sounds of a single day. That's what Tom Ford's Lavender Palm is. It's a summer's day in California, pressed into a bottle. Putting on such a fragrance is the equivalent of an unusual form of teleportation. Spray. Close eyes. Breathe. You're there. It's the warmth of sun on your face, the elegance of silk on your skin, it's grass and leaves crushed underfoot; it's elegant, warm, and fresh.

With shelves stocked and fingers crossed in the hope of a good Christmas for retailers, the industry en masse openly admits that it has turned its focus away from the remainder of the year and is instead focussed…

Paul Smith Melbourne store: opening soon

While the face of the fast fashion scene in Australia has rapidly changed in 2011 courtesy of the opening of Zara and impending opening of Topshop in Melbourne, changes to the medium-high and high-end of the market have gone relatively unnoticed. But changes are certainly afoot. Though we’ve heard many a rumour about the intention of European designer brands to set up shop here (we’ll…

Topshop heading to Perth

That Topshop will be in Australia before the year is out is no secret to fashionisers, with the first Melbourne Topshop due to open in early December and a Sydney store set for 2012. That’s the majority of shoppers in the east of Australia covered. What of their western cousins, however? It’s looking like a 2012 opening is on the cards.
