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.

It's a matter of make-or-break: whether tonight will turn into a potential relationship, or simply complete humiliation that will abruptly cut any further contact. Part of the nerve-racking process of the first date is ordering the first drink. This drink will implicitly say a lot about you and will be a contributing factor on whether your date will even give you a shot (no pun intended).

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.

14/05/2015 by Amy Robinson

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.
