Written by Tania BraukamperPart of the beauty of sweeping pleated dresses is that they work so well in all kinds of colours. Something about a pleated skirt, no matter how vibrant or bold, colour just seems to work with them. And what more fitting a colour for a dress of sunray pleats than silk as golden yellow as sunrays themselves. And so it was that I stumbled across this shoot by photographer Mariah Jelena, and fell in love particularly with this shot. Unfortunately she gives little away as to the designer, it simply says "clothes by Ruki" and that's all the information I have. You can, however, view more of Mariah's photos at the gallery b...Read more
Written by Shitika AnandHeralding in next week's RAFW (Australian fashion week) with a private pre-showing in Sydney, LIFEWithBird's spring / summer 2011 collection is a refreshing distraction from the chilly wind outside.

Written by Tania BraukamperWhen a subcultural trend makes it to the mainstream, you'll inevitably see it watered down and softened to varying degrees. Fashion can be about play, about pulling elements from different sources and inspirations, and that's what shines through when a trend like punk makes that transition: as we originally wrote in that trend report, punk in 2011 comes down to particular elements rather than an all-out culture. This shoot of Meghan Collison for Elle France flirts with punk in precisely that way. Added elements like leather pieces, badges, and paid pants are there to give that sense of rebelliousness without wholeheartedly flying some overt punk flag. Softer pieces come into the mix as the styling by Anne-Marie Brouillet finds its ...Read more
Written by Magdalena KapuscinskaA tribute to Alexander McQueen's artistic output presented in Vogue US is an awe-inspiring retrospective of the stellar career, and a thorough preview of the upcoming Savage Beauty exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute on May 4th. Alexander the Great is a beautiful story of the fashion pioneer and Enfant Terrible in one. Following the meaning of this figurative title, Alexander undeniably conquered the fashion world with his innovative vision and tremendous artistry that weren't always acceptable for the audience but surely recognized as McQueen's signature. The powerful impact leaves a priceless and timeless reminiscence. ...Read more
Written by Tania BraukamperThere's a quality that great photographers possess, and Lyndel Yeo has it. She connects with her subjects; she brings the best out of them. While great photography and that particular talent aren't extricably linked it's a combination that means the resulting photos go beyond being just technically sound. In this particular series Yeo photographed Taylah Verney - who you may remember from our own double-knot hairstyle how-to series - to beautiful effect. Lyndel Yeo and her partner at 35mm, Daniel Jackson, photographed the shoot which features clothing by Everlayne and jewellery by Damselfly. Click o...Read more
