    Listen, I know what you're thinking: these people are living the dream. And you're absolutely right. Ever since I was a kid I have been waaaay too into Maccas: the McNuggets, the salty salty chips and the extra sweet icy cold Coke. Everything about it just makes me so deliriously happy.

The Darling Sisters will be at Canberra’s Fashfest on opening night showcasing their garments over two shows-  ‘Darling Sisters’ and ‘Darling Sisters Swimwear’.

    In the 2000′s, we were at war with fast food. Drive-ins and take-outs were public enemy number one, held responsible for a world wide obesity epidemic, and ‘Super Size Me’ became a generational icon. So it was inevitable then, that in the 2010′s, fast food references would become high fashion.

    It was a risky business venture tethered to the fickle world of fashion in a city renowned for its lack of sartorial savvy.

    Part two of my collaboration with Perpetually Five and FASHFEST involves a certain adorable koala-print jumper. I wanted to play up the fun factor of the piece by shooting it in the arcade at Belconnen Mall, and I got even more into the spirit by donning the teenage uniform of denim shorts, sneakers and mid-rise school socks.
