The essence of sporty-chic

Australia has the sports-luxe aesthetic nailed. Which makes sense, if you consider the sunburnt country’s love of outdoor activities, and it’s penchant for turning effortless style statements into something more sophisticated.

Lisa Ho’s ballet troupe in the tropics

Ballet gone tropical? That was Lisa Ho’s brief for Australian fashion week (MBFWA) and it manifested immediately in the first look: a flirty dress that tutu-ed out from the waist, in vibrant yellow. An eclectic flow of colour and print followed, from hibiscus to palm, a particularly note worthy number floating behind the body of Rachel Rutt in semi-sheer tropical print. A few peplums and…

San Diego serenade

While there’s plenty to be said for keeping it thematic, you don’t necessarily have to stick to one theme exclusively. There’s nothing to say you can’t divide your thematic wardrobe allegiances between different cultures, different styles, different trends.

Rachel Gilbert: night creatures

Despite how conveniently it sums up the purpose of the piece, event wear can be something of a dirty term. At its worst it implies gowns of the satin variety that footballers wives are often want to swan around in. Rachel Gilbert’s spring / summer 2011 collection proved that needn’t be the case – something not necessarily easy in a country where elegance is oft…

Rachel Rutt: the calm

Rachel Rutt’s Australian-Singaporean genes were a melting pot of unique beauty just waiting to boil over. She has that ability to look steamily hard and tough or sweetly innocent, as if by the flick of a switch; though when we snapped this photo backstage at VAMFF (Melbourne Fashion Festival) it was a rare glimpse of Rachel being neither.
