Dyspnea is the shortness of breath (SOB), or air hunger, is the subjective symptom of breathlessness.

This perfectly describes the feeling I had when I first saw Jameen – one half of the Dyspnea design team, at Sydney fashion week earlier this year.

It wasn’t because her looks took my breath away (although she is very cute) it was that the top she was wearing felt so fresh and cool. An all pink fluffy bunny tails creation with a soft feminine feel and sequins detail. Seriously it was the cutest thing I had seen in quite some time. (Check out Jameen at MBFWA here).

To show our love, we’ve collaborated with our new fave Perth label and shot a few of their cute crops, dancing around Richmond with the beautiful Hayley, this is the first of three.

Since fashion week Dyspnea have become an instagram sensation with lots of my Melbourne insta-friends loving this Perth based label of crops, sequins and fluff as much as I do. If you haven’t already clicked through to DYSPNEA.com.au do it now. You’ll love it! xxx

Last week, while in Sydney we caught up with the stunning Sara from Harper and Harley. This lady is not only super stylish in her Isabel Marant dress from The Corner Shop, but so incredibly down to earth and lovely you wouldn’t believe it.

Among  so many other things we spoke about her excitement of being involved with the new TV series, Fashion Bloggers TV. She and a few of our other faves, Mandy from Oracle Fox, Margarette from Shine by Three and Kate Waterhouse plus a few more are all about to dive into the filming… We’re hoping we’ll run into them all in NYC for fashion week.

Fingers crossed. x

Last Thursday at the iconic Carriageworks in Redfern, MYER launched it’s Spring/Summer 15 season. Silver palm fronds hung above the runway reflecting light and fanning all those in attendance. Trends includes summer sorbets, wearable art and a personal highlight, the white out, which was also the finale, where we saw  Jen Hawkins, Nicole Trufino, Kris Smith and Kate Peck along with 64 bare foot models walk down the runway in all things white.

The look I need now, is a black pleated creation by Australian Designer Kym Ellery (here), known for creating garments with a lot of volume and fabric this dress was a dreamy sea of black satin that cascaded down the front of the model’s body as she walked. x

Melbourne Spring Fashion Week


Spring in Melbourne is by far my favourite time of year. Not only does the city come alive with colour, but it also comes alive with events.

Melbourne Spring Fashion Week has been a star on my calendar ever since I moved to Melbourne 7 years ago, but this year I’m lucky enough not just to be attending, but be involved in multiple parts of the Spring Fashion celebrations.

Opening night is always a favourite, but this year MSFW has quite a few surprised involved that will be activated throughout the city making it a night not to be missed – star Friday 29th August in your calendar immediately. On this night we’ll be heading into our favourite shopping destination Melbourne Central and  shooting the super stylish from 5pm-10pm.

Then on Monday we’ll be sharing the Street Smith story as part of the cultural program, talking after one of our own style icons Yasmine Sewell and sharing as many tips and tricks for success as we can. (for more on the industry day click here)

We’re also excited to be named one of the official Influencers of MSFW. In this role we’re not only lucky enough to get be sitting front row at all the Designer Parades, but we’re also catching up with some of our favourite Melbourne Designers who will be presenting their Spring collections.. so watch this space.

Check out all the other MSFW Influencers here, including Jasmine from Friend in Fashion - the other Designer Influencer - as pictured above and to the left.

Thank you to the beautiful Lana Wilkinson for styling up this stunning outfit on Jasmine. xxx
