Are you coming to Fashionopolis? 12 May ’12. Be there.

Love fashion? Love Fashionopolis. Do you live fashion, know how to write, adore clothes and fancy yourself a blogger? Or better yet, care to do so? Then you’ll love this event. Lagerfeld himself wouldn’t miss it… were it not for his being on the other side of the planet. It’s the industry’s first fashion-focused event […]

I have a thing for Mister Mode

In its second year since relaunching in 2011, Mister Mode took to the streets of Melbourne for the enjoyment of many a pre-loved fashion fan. Held last Saturday night at 222 Johnston Street in Melbourne’s north-of-the-river suburb of Collingwood, the Fashion Night Market welcomed in the city’s fashion conscious and socially savvy in a celebratory […]

Love the loved at Take2

The ornate, yellowing cornices of spaciously generous Northcote Town Hall stared down at the bustling men and women below as they lovingly fondled pre-loved vintage pieces brought together from the furthest reaches of Melbourne’s households by the stallholders at Take2 Markets. One sleepy Sunday, the queenlike quartet of Irish Rivera, Ilker Kale, Chris Rivera and I made the trek from our […]

Bangin’ Bang & Olufsen

With a new president and CEO and a constantly growing global network of retail and branding, it seemed only fitting that Bang & Olufsen reopened its Melbourne CBD store for the enjoyment of digital enthusiasts and top quality electronics lovers recently. Zagame’s Maserati and Ferrari cars were parked auspiciously out the front of the beaming, pristine new store, […]

Hair, nail and beauty lovers unite!

Salon Melbourne is the country’s biggest hair, beauty and nail lovers gathering of epic proportions and took place last weekend at Jeff’s Shed for the enjoyment of countless people.

Purple, green, black, red; all the colours! It’s all there! Smothering the walls, the floor, the furniture, Hasti Bala certainly knows how to make a statement when it comes to winning the hearts of Melbourne’s creative, fashion and style crowds.

Honey, this place can turn my key any day

In true Melbourne style, we welcomed in another venue of chic opulence and interior delight. I refer to The Key Club on Lonsdale Street, which last night (22 February 2012) officially opened its doors in a flutter of stylish finesse, alcoholic celebration and musical delight with some of the city’s most social, prettiest faces and coolest cats […]

With people’s tongues a chatter, Couturing graces the fashion scene

Melbourne’s fashion scene gathered in epic proportions last night (8 February 2012) at Melbourne’s GPO to officially welcome in the newest thing to hit our online sphere, Couturing.com. Having come from two very different backgrounds, Lisa Teh and Thom Whilton, Couturing’s founders, tired of the stigma surrounding blogs and online publications. So in an effort to fight […]

Australian Open 2012 tennis players’ party

Sinking a long drink of some description at the Long Room was the done thing at the tennis player’s party held at none other than super chic and opulent Long Room on Collins Street on Thursday 19 January. With the Australian Open on everybody’s mind, tennis bigs and smalls, greats and nobodies filed into the establishment to sink […]

Trying to be clean at Laundry Bar

The irony is inescapable. We were at Laundry Bar, in Fitzroy and we were surrounded by beautiful men and women: the legions of models on Giant Model Management’s books. Clean, laundered thoughts? Hardly. On Saturday 17 December at around 8pm, people filed into the small and modestly decorated bar in Melbourne’s northern suburb for a party filled […]

The Mean, the Median and the Mister Mode

Well Mister Mode has done it again. The Melbourne music, social and fashion scenes were sent into overdrive on 10 December 2011 with the Mister Mode Fashion Night Market, which went off as per usual without hitch. The Market took-over Oak Place Warehouse in South Yarra, a very cool and industrial grunge-come-fashion chic venue that was […]
