Charity + Fashion

October 11, 2012

There’s nothing more fun to attend, or organise than a charity fashion event. An occasion to dress up, meet and mingle and enjoy a night filled with entertainment and help raise much needed funds to those in need.

It is important to remember how incredibly fortunate we are and supporting any type of charity is something we as fashion stylists love to get amongst. When it comes to a chari...

We’ve seen an exciting amount of new trends come around this year, and swimwear is no different. New swimwear can be daunting to go in search for, but there’s nothing better than having a gorgeous new pair of togs that you feel sexy and comfortable in.

For our ladies the one piece is back! Not the intense cut-out type, but a classic one piece with a low back or a plunging neckline. An el...

Everything’s relaxed at Polo, there is still glamour but what is most evident is the signature effortless styling for all.

It’s Spring so play with pastels, crisp whites and prints. Think outfits you see Ralph Lauren put together or that cool and classic country club look.

What better way to celebrate Spring than a day at the races! Good company, amazing fashion, and delicious food and drinks.

Growing up in a generation where tattoos are acceptable to your peers but not so much to your parents can be tough. Trying to express individuality and fit into a fashion world at the same time can be just as challenging. But what if we were to tell you that we think tattoos are fashion? Society may or may not have approved of inked skin fifty years ago but today’s generation is embracing ink m...

We must be all feeling rather sporty at the moment with the 2012 London Olympic Games in full swing. It’s been impressive to watch but it’s been even more impressive by seeing the world on display, not only representing their own countries but showcasing the origin of international designers.

I can easily count the amount of engagements and weddings on both hands! Including our very own Lead stylist and Director of ID Couture, getting engaged on her current trip to Europe!

There are so many common links between both th...
