The inside scoop

Maelita (CUE sales assistant) was snapped at the launch of the CUE Summer 16 VIP night hosted at the Canberra Centre store.

While Maelita was taking VIP customers through the upcoming trends, The Fashion Vault couldn’t help but admire her style.

We stole her away from the buzz for five minutes to get the inside scoop on what to expect from CUE’s summer range.

“The key summer trend you will see in store is sharp tailoring and floral touches to our pieces," Maelita says.

“My favourite piece from the CUE collection would have to be the lace overlay skirt because of its versatility".

The CUE collection is definitely worth a look. With versatile items for both work and play, there is something for everyone.

Docs and denim

Recently signed model Shinae was shot on her way to a shoot for local modelling agency, Devojka Models.

The Fashion Vault took five minutes to chat about her naturally-stunning fashion look.

“My favourite piece in my wardrobe would have to be my denim skirt,” Shinae says.

“I can wear anything with it, like a belt, and pretty much have an instant outfit. It also has a retro vibe to it which I adore."

The Fashion Vault also asked what she felt most comfortable wearing.

“Summer is my favourite season and I am most comfortable in staple shorts. My signature is high-waisted shorts, with Dr. Martens, a simple tank and belt,” she says.

This certainly sounds comfortable and stylish! So where does this model draw inspiration from you ask?

Shinae loves to get ideas from an Italian clothing company called Brandy Melville, which has a retro and old-school feel to it, aligned with her personal style.

The Fashion Vault can’t wait to see what this newly-signed model gets up to.

Mister Austin's Sunday best

The Fashion Vault snapped little Austin dressed in his favourite outfit over the weekend.

This cutie shows us that style can come at any age (albeit with the help of his parents in this case).

Chinos and a quality blazer are always an easy way to improve your style game, whether you're a toddler or a grown man!

Toy cars are optional accessories - perhaps left to the kiddies!

Misbhv meets A$AP Rocky

The Fashion Vault snapped student Michael John in Belconnen this week. Michael’s fashion flavour is a mix of grunge, street and casual wear.

His favourite brand is Misbhv. The leather jacket featured in this shot is by Misbhv and is one of his wardrobe staples.

“I love this Misbhv jacket because I’m into leather and have an appreciation for patchwork. It also draws inspiration from the past giving it a '70s vibe,” he says.

“One of my style influencers has to be A$AP Rocky as he likes to dress well and it’s not just about swagger."

Like Michael, we should all own a leather jacket that reflects your individual style whether it be plain or adorned. Leather jackets are great for all seasons and are worth the investment.

A vintage statement

Shot by The Fashion Vault, Bede was in Canberra visiting family.

This uni student ops for neutral pieces paired back with a statement piece, such as a bright-coloured shirt. When shopping he likes to mix high and low-end items and enjoys finding unique pieces in vintage stores.
