Black Opal 2010 was a muddy affair. But the persistent rain didn’t stop the show ponies from emerging in high heels and dainty headwear, in anticipation for the Myer Fashions on the Field competition. For the first race on the Canberra Autumn racing calendar, the Fashion's on the Field stage didn't see much of this season's trends, with only sprinklings of metallics, nudes and strong shoulders making a show. Instead, racegoers opted for traditional black and white in classic silhouettes, with leather gloves aplenty.

AMC's hit TV series Mad Men has gained millions of fans by tackling explicit themes like sex, money and power in the 60's, but it's the sharp and era accurate costume design that really bring these characters to life. Proto-feminist sirens Betty, Peggy and Joan flounce around the small screen in early 60’s tweed, tea dress and swing coats - envy worthy, while the men kick back in sharp 3-button suits, sip scotch and chain smoke.


Give prissy the boot

27/01/2010 by Natalie Tsirimokos

The 90's are the new 80's and in fashion we know what goes around, comes around. At least that's the case this season, with the beloved Doc Martins cult high-top style making a mammoth comeback. Much of this trend can be credited to Agyness Deyn, who has been sporting her own Docs since she launched into the scene in 2007. So how do you re-live the 90’s without looking too, well 90’s? Team the boots with a mini skirt, skater dress or short floral dress. This time around the look is about ‘legs,’ so don’t wear them with jeans unless you want to look masculine.
