    Even though it's a pretty different look for me I loved styling this "love me" skirt from WND.LND. I especially love the smily patches hidden throughout the roses, they're just like the ones on Ted Theodore Logan's shorts.

    Last weekend, in the lead up to Fashfest 2014, I got to style garments by Pure Pod (Kelli Donovan) and Recollection (Philippa Soutberg), both of whom are working like mad to create collections that will be launched at Fashfest. Just when I thought this whole thing couldn’t get any more hootin’ darn tootin’, the weekend I chose to shoot just happened to be the one that Richard George Butlin, photographer extraordinaire, decided to visit ol’ Canberra town. Shot at the National Gallery’s Sculpture Garden, this series of self-styled outfits start from classically tailored and finish at Amelia Earhart meets Carmen Santiago.

    What goes round comes round. And that includes the Peppermint Twist (for those of you under the age of 40, that’s the name of a bestselling song from the 60s…but that’s not all it is). Although she wouldn’t have known it modelling on a runway at the Canberra Airport under a grey and somewhat threatening sky, Belinda Riding, The Face of FASHFEST, was wearing a dress made of material originally bought for tights in 2009. And she didn’t know the fabric was called Peppermint Twist.

    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.

    I was lucky enough to spend the day with The Darling Sisters.  Stepping into their boutique I immediately got a sense of the exquisite glamour from the past eras and a feel for just how unique their garments are. The Darling Sisters will be at Canberra’s Fashfest on opening night showcasing their garments over two shows-  ‘Darling Sisters’ and ‘Darling Sisters Swimwear’.

    Fast food Fast fashion: Closet Voyage x Perpetually Five

    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. Anya Hindmarch made her new season arm candy from advertising images of nutritionally void children’s breakfast cereals, and Moschino<%

    Fashfest: The business of fashion

    It was a risky business venture tethered to the fickle world of fashion in a city renowned for its lack of sartorial savvy. Yet Fashfest, Canberra's four-day equivalent to the Sydney and Melbourne fashion weeks, has not only quickly cemented itself as an annual event, but helped kick-start the fledgling fashion industry on to the path of commercial success.

    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.
