When it comes to personal style, each are well and truly to their own. It is a reflection on personality, self awareness and conveying that through choice of clothing and accessories. Climate, budget and a person’s whereabouts play as the major factors of ones styling decisions. It’s a subjective form. Who are we to judge and say what is right or what is wrong?

We take inspiration from...

When it comes to fashion, colour is our best weapon. With winter fast approaching, we look to what colours are going to be seen and how we can wear them according to our own colour groups.

The Fall 2011 shows revived some of my favourite trends in an exceptionally innovative – dare I say – fashion.

Jeepers 'Creepers'

Is it boy leg underwear? A tight fitting mini? Or maybe the crotch of a pair of hosiery determined to make its way to your knees before lunch. Clothes that creep (up, or down) aren’t exactly what’s been sending the fashion industry into a frenzy of late. The popularity of the so-called Creeper (it’s a style of shoe) quite conveniently ‘crept’ up on us whilst we were busy obsessing over McQueen’...

With most Australians immediately thinking of singlets and board-shorts for summer frivol...
