RAFW Review - Beauty

May 16th, 2011 by , and | 2 Comments

The beauty looks displayed at this year’s Rosemount Australian Fashion Week were as trendsetting as the outfits the models were wearing. Like the clothes displayed, we also saw in hair and make-up: pops of colour, flirtatious nudes and daring shapes. From colour blocking lips at Dhini to a hair-raising affair at Bowie, these are our favourites (whether you dare to try them or not is up to you!).

RAFW Review - Gary Bigeni and Sara Phillips are totally wearable

May 11th, 2011 by , and | 1 Comment

The term “wearable” is a bit of a double edged sword in fashion realms. While it can often signify the ultimate compliment – clothes that translate seamlessly into real life – it can also be a subtle barb; clothes that are boring, banal and utterly without design quality.

RAFW wrap up - day two

May 4th, 2011 by , , , and | 1 Comment

Rugged up in coats and furs were we, the On the Streets of Sydney Team ready to keep you updated on day 2 of RAFW. But, in classic Sydney style, the weather changed, and what could have been a bleak and dismal day became a mildly tolerable one. Just as well, because we had Rachel Gilbert, Sara Philips, Miss Unkon, Carl Kapp, Amber and Thomas, Marnie Skillings, Kate Sylvester and more to go to. We kept in high spirits with blow-dry sessions at the Redken Tents and plenty of post-show dissection of looks (we loved the bike shorts at Sara Philips, we are desperate for the yellow maxi dress at Kate Sylvester, we would do anything for those fringed flares at Amber and Thomas). RAFW is definitely catching up to us. We’ve run around the city for off-site shows, snuck in a couple of classes at uni and time at work, we ran into superstars (and best friends) Gail Elliot and Yasmin Le Bon and got the chance to spend some quality blogging downtime with old friends like Zanita Whittington. And, hey, maybe we’re going a little crazy, but was that a snake on the runway at RTW Group 2? What an exciting day. We can’t wait to see what Day 3 throws up.

GALA Curios

January 14th, 2011 by and | 4 Comments

GALA Curios, the creation of COFA graduate, Jasmine O’Loughlin Glover, draws upon the mantra that nothing is as it seems. Her collections combine the amalgamation of both valuable and invaluable objects to dictate that nothing should be taken at face value; that everyday objects such as paper can be wielded to produce an amazing piece of jewellery.
