 Cute and yummy customised cupcakes!

On Thursday night I was lucky enough to be invited to attend the new store opening of Kings of Carnaby. Kings of Carnaby is an emerging label in Melbourne, established in 2009 and was created by friends since high school, Nick Tologlou and Michael Lamacchia. Inspired by the 60's mod era in London, Kings of Carnaby's pieces are elegant, preppy and classic. 

Guests were nibbling on delicious cupcakes courtesy of Cupcake Central and sipping on Asahis and everyone's favourite cider brand, Rekorderlig. Not only was the event attended by some of Melbourne's best fashion bloggers but also in attendance was singer/songwriter Lisa Mitchell of 'Coin Laundry' fame and The Getaway Plan's bassist Dave Anderson. 

If you're ever in Melbourne be sure to check out the store, the clothes and the boys at Kings of Carnaby - 338 Brunswick St, Fitzroy.

this will destroy you

I'm a sucker for outrageous heels but these shoes designed by Anastasia Radevich bring a whole new meaning to the word outrageous! With the wedge shape space filled out by a startling sentence: 'This will destroy you' and the almost apocalyptic textural marble-like print on the body of the shoe turn this into more than just a fashion statement but rather a work of art. 
These shoes look almost too good to wear (although, I would wear these babies on almost a daily basis) they look as though they belong in a museum or an art gallery. I cannot stop staring at them!

The designer himself - Matcho Suba

Tutu and myself before the show

A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to be invited to Melbourne based designer of Project Runway Australia fame, Matcho Suba's collection launch. It was aesthetically everything that I like about fashion - edgy, dark, somewhat controversial, provocative and just fabulous.
The collection predominately incorporated PVC, pleather, studs, lace and of course who could forget the accessories complete with a dolls leg as a necklace?
The collection was based around or inspired, if you like, by the Ukrainian nuclear disaster of the 1980's; Chernobyl, which the ramifications are still very much evident in the Ukraine today.

science behind the art

The man behind the science and the art, Kelsey Brookes

Kelsey Brookes who you may be interested to know is a man and used to be a microbiologist scientist and after spending years of his life tracking viruses for U.S government, now works as a full-time fine artist in California. His work is out-of-this-world amazing and unlike anything I've ever seen before, skeletons, snakes, exotic animals, sex and Hindu and Buddhist deities are prevalent in his work which is often done with pink, purple and blue chalks, water-colours and spray-paints. I strongly advice you to check out some more of his work online here

topshop australia x russh magazine

RUSSH Magazine's deputy editor Clare Alstin and editor-in-chief Jess Blanch

Last night I had the privilege of being invited by Topshop Australia for an event they were hosting at their Melbourne store featuring trend talks by the editor-in-chief of my favourite magazine, RUSSH, Jess Blanch and her take on this season's fashions was as refreshing as the raspberry and cucumber cocktails which were being served to the guests all night long. Jess reflected on her favourite shows from homegrown MBFWA and from the fall/winter shows in Paris, Milan, New York and London and I was lucky enough to be able to chat to her one-on-one before the end of the night. 

Wearing a blazer, basic-tee, boyfriend jeans and her signature chunky frames Jess was the embodiment of her magazine and it's tagline 'Australian at heart, international in mindset.'
After having a chat to Jess we were able to browse the store and check out exclusive pieces from the new seasons' range which haven't yet hit the shop-floor.

All in all it was a great night and I thank Topshop Australia and RUSSH for having me there!

Thanks for the goodies!

models do it better

I was lucky enough to snap some models - including Jess Gold who is one of my favourite Aussie models right now - after the Independent Runway show which showcased labels such as Ksubi, Something Else, Jolet, Lui Hon and Extinct for L'oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival.
Throughout the week and off the runway, I also saw Rachel Rutt, Alice Burdeau, Montana Cox, Emily Jean, Louise Van Vorst and Eliza Humble who were all nice in person too (the ones I did speak to.)
