Dressing For The 'Code'

04/06/2015 by Styled By Francesca

Have you ever walked into an event or wedding and asked yourself the question. Did I get the dress code wrong? I know I have and quite frankly it can be a little embarrassing. I went to a wedding once and the dress code was FORMAL. Boy, did I feel as though I was the only one that got the memo. As a stylist, I believe that dressing for the code, is very important. Not only does it help you decide what to wear but it indicates, an expectation that invitee is setting on their guest. They are basically telling you what not to wear.

Here's our Newbie's Guide to Winter!

18/05/2015 by Maeve Bannister

Last year, I met a guy who, upon finding out where I was from said, “UGH! Canberra is the absolute worst.* It’s hot in summer and cold in winter.” Instead of dwelling on his strange idea of what exactly the weather is supposed to be (because, last time I checked, it’s actually quite acceptable that summer is hot and winter is cold), I’d like to focus on the last part of his statement, because he was quite right: Canberra is pretty cold in winter.

17/05/2015 by Jemma Mrdak

In the fashion industry, breaking design limits and taking risks is a must. Moving design beyond the boundaries of what is possible and predicting the future is what makes one designer stand out from another. Tonight, each Fashfest designer, on the final night of shows, proved that they can do just that. Being the finale of Fashfest, expectations were high, and we weren’t disappointed in the slightest.

Crowds gathered for Night 3 of FashFest at the new, slightly warmer than last year's location of the National Convention Centre - a bigger venue for a much bigger show. Tonight was all about ‘The Cartographer’, or someone who makes maps. Incorporating the essence of land and exploring how reality can be manipulated, we saw a great example of how garments are constructed and changed.


Recap: Fashfest Night 2 - The Inventor

Anticipation and excitement carried over into the second night of Fashfest at the National Convention Centre. The theme of ‘The Inventor’ was brought to life through creativity, innovation and originality as designers stunned and awed onlookers with their series of masterpieces. Each collection was transitioned by a variation of moody, jazzy and, one could even say, mechanical sounds delivered by DJ Ced Nada, saxophonist Julian Fung and rapper Tak-Un-Da.
