Miley Cyrus is seriously hooked on DI$COUNT UNIVER$E, with her love for the Melbourne-based label continuing through her Australian Bangerz tour. She’s been sporting the kooky threads ever since she landed down under, including a mix of sparkly, colorful and comical pieces for both on and off the stage. Because the twerker just loves a good head turn, no matter where she goes.

For her very first Australian interview with The Project, and just before her very first Australian show at Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena, Miley was already repping DI$COUNT UNIVER$E in the label’s yet-to-be-released pink-ombre tracksuit. You might have spotted the same piece on her Instagram, but you’d be forgiven for missing it amongst the pop provocateur’s 20-plus posts a day. (more…)

Mackage Announces Trunk Shows at Harry Rosen and Holt Renfrew

Mackage article

Any fashion maven worth her lambskin biker jacket can tell you that stylish outerwear is as integral to your overall look as an iconic bag. Better yet, let Elisa Dahan and Eran Elfassy, creative directors of the outerwear and accessories brand Mackage, tell you. On October 18, the design duo will make an appearance at an exclusive trunk show at high-end men’s destination Harry Rosen Yorkdale from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. to unveil some select Spring 2015 styles. And they’ll follow it up on October 25 from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Holt Renfrew Yorkdale, where shoppers will be able to pre-order the collection.

The spring collection takes inspiration from the bustling metropolis, evoking the feeling of excitement that pulsates within a world-class city. The result is functional outerwear with an injection of attitude. Traditional styles like the moto jacket and the bomber will be punched up in shades of bright pink, electric yellow and cobalt blue, and inventive new silhouettes will elevate the brand’s heritage while taking it into modern territory befitting the stylish traveller.

On October 22, Mackage will unveil the new spring outerwear styles as well as its burgeoning handbag collection (launched in 2013) on the runway at Toronto’s World MasterCard Fashion Week.

Flashback: Vogue Paris February 2005 with Gemma Ward by Mario Testino

Since Gemma Ward recently made her modeling comeback on Prada‘s Spring 2015 runway during Milan Fashion Week, we’re taking a look back at one of the Australian beauty’s most memorable Vogue covers for this week’s Fashion Flashback. Gemma covered the February 2005 issue of Vogue Paris, lensed by Mario Testino. The baby-faced teenage model was captured wearing a black and white polka dot dress from Stefano Pilati‘s debut collection for Yves Saint Laurent, styled by Carine Roitfeld.

Gemma was also shot by Testino for a series of images inside the issue where she showcases even more of Pilati’s first collection for YSL. In each and every shot, she models with a pair of scissors (kind of an odd fashion accessory). She’s either cutting her own hair, her bottom lip or attempting to cut a goldfish out of its bowl while crawling across a table. The engaging editorial is even featured inside Roitfeld’s book, Irreverent.

Anja Rubik, snapped by Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, also stars in the 258-page issue. Crystal Renn was shot by Craig McDean for some photos that helped shape her career, and Natalia Vodianova was captured by Mikael Jansson on a tennis court at night. If that wasn’t enough, Patrick Demarchelier photographed Natasha Poly for a set of dreamy black and white images where Natasha donned a selection of white summer dresses.

Familiarize yourself with the issue’s contents inside the thread and don’t hesitate to reignite discussion here.

Details of the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty Exhibition London Showcase Revealed

Since discovering that London’s V&A was set to become the new home of the acclaimed Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibition, we’ve been eagerly awaiting to find out more. So we definitely weren’t disappointed when Vogue U.K. revealed some juicy details.



Revealing a selection of Alexander McQueen dresses at the #SavageBeauty press briefing. Exhibition opens 14 March, tickets on sale now. In partnership with @official_swarovski. Supported by @AmexUK Thanks to @MACcosmetics @worldmcqueen #fashion #exhibition #London #McQueen

Quite possibly the most exciting revelation was the life-size revival of his infamous Kate Moss hologram, originally from the designer’s 2006 runway show in response to her cocaine scandal. A miniature version was previously on display at the Met, but that’s nothing compared to the immersive experience of standing next to a full-size Kate.

McQueen’s humble origins and how he worked his way up within the fashion industry are widely known, but can you really recall all of his early work? Probably not, so it’s great to hear that the exhibition also includes a room that’s entirely themed around his early career in London. It’s always interesting to look at a designer’s work from the beginning of their career and see how their signatures developed over time. (more…)
