One thing that really inspires me is hearing and learning from women that are talented, successful and love what they do, this describes the beautiful Margie Woods perfectly. She started the effortlessly cool Melbourne fashion label Viktoria + Woods and the successful fashion agency The LOFFT (online here)simultaneously in 2003, and she does it all in her stride with a young family! Wow!
So as promised here is my chat with the super talented print master Benjamin Ringuet from the label RINGUET. I was lucky enough to wear one of his pieces to fashion week last week, nothing better than wearing a strong print with plain basics. I was interested in learning more about what inspires him to design all his raw artistic creations.
Oh how LMFF gets Melbourne buzzing. You all know how much I love a designer collaboration?! This one is special as it involves my favourite coffee brand Lavazza and one of the best Australian (Melbourne born) labels LIFEwithBIRD. I had a chat to the super lovely LIFEwithBIRD designers Bridget McCall and Nicholas Van Messner at a very special coffee date on Tuesday morning, to hear more about their current A/W collection called ‘Wild Species Dark Love’ and their association with Lavazza.
I have always been a denim kind of girl! When you find a brand that fits your body well, is super affordable and has cool prints..I fall in love even more! A few months ago, I came across a pair of leopard print RES denim shorts in my local shop in St Kilda and from that moment I became hooked. I was lucky to recently have a chat with Elly Frangos- the talented head designer behind the label to learn more about this intriguing new Melbourne denim brand, that is definitely the talk around town.
