zimmermann-sydney: Pre-Fashion Week Diary: 60 seconds with… Tamila Purvis.
Manning Cartell part 1: stylist Peter Simon...
What were you thinking when you styled the collection? I was… thinking about who the girl was from the collection. Okay, so who was the girl? She was inspired by Frida Kahlo, so we kind of made a bit of a hardcore Latina bitch… can I say that? Just a strong type of woman. A hardcore Latina… I don’t think I’ve ever met one of those. You haven’t? Well you’ve just met 21 of...
Weddings: a sweet celebration of love, happiness and two wills bending to become one, or a night to be endured of cheesy dance hall classics, tasteless food* and boring speeches? My little sister Karen’s was definitely the former. Karen and I first met at church two years ago, back when I could barely string a sentence together in Spanish. I met her family at church and long story short, I...
Meet meat meet Vera from VeraMeat
I met Vera Balyura outside Hemingway & Pickett, a store in LA’s Silver Lake district that is run, funnily enough, by an Australian (owner Toby Burke Hemingway is from Melbourne). The store was hosting a trunk show for her label VeraMeat, and the slender, hauntingly beautiful designer was at the door personally to greet guests with her gorgeous companion Fred (a girl, by the way). ...
Susie Lau of Susie Bubble X Portable
Soft-spoken, charmingly self-deprecating, intelligent and passionate about all that is good about fashion: Susie Lau of Style Bubble comes to Australia for Portable (which, I might add, is my new go-to for all things quirky, gorgeous and beautiful about film. Watch some of them. You’ll never go back to Youtube again.) Head to Portable for tickets + more info. You really shouldn’t...

LIFEwithBIRD summer 2012/13 show
LIFEwithBIRD, the label by the too-sweet couple Nicholas Van Messner and Bridget McCall, celebrated its tenth year in existence this morning at the Sydney Opera House with a short but sweet preview of their summer 2012/13 collection. The clothes reminded me somewhat of the 3.1 Phillip Lim collection shown in New York last year, if only because both displayed soft, languid minimalist shapes with a...

Australian model Olivia Thornton debuts on the...
Just three years ago, Olivia Thornton was unknown. Today, she’s walking for some of the most prominent designers in the industry. Vogue meets the Queensland native who’s making her mark on the world stage. Olivia Thornton was discovered on the Gold Coast at the end of 2009, and after only having appeared in two fashion weeks in Australia – “My first Australian Fashion Week I was still in school...

Bic Runga returns to the stage
If you’re not familiar with Bic Runga, you should be. The NZ singer’s voice is ethereal and haunting, and her soft Kiwi lilt turns her music into seductively sensitive melodies. On top of that, her ethnically ambiguous looks (her father is Maori; her mother was a Chinese-Malaysian lounge singer) mean she has a kind of unique beauty that’s absolutely fascinating. I spoke to her...

My home cook hero
A pared-back approach to cooking that focuses on fun and good flavours. Also, I kind of love her jumper. Name: Victoria Yee Howe Current location: Brooklyn Daily uniform: Mini skirts, boots, a big wool coat, dark sunglasses and a thoughtful perfume. I try to buy either very cheap, old clothing or really expensive new clothing and not much in between. My dream uniform involves a lot of Comme des...
This gal certainly ain’t no wallflower. Love the juxtaposition of casual insouciance, an infective attitude and more bling than a Copacabana samba dancer. Of course, she is wearing more clothes than said dancer in the first place, so I suppose that’s not hard. / via Miishka
