The Costume Institute organises a spring exhibition each year, the opening of which on the first Monday in May is accompanied by The Met Gala – one of the most eagerly anticipated events in the annual fashion calendar.
This year’s theme ‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination’ explores how the religion’s imagery and symbolism has impacted contemporary haute-couture and ready-to-wear designs. Click through for more details and a sneak peek into the exhibition which is open to the public from May 10.

In November, the interior of South Yarra’s Como House will take on the appearance of something less Australian Regency, more 20th-century France. The transformation is in homage to the life of Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel as part of an immersive retrospective of the fashion icon. Click on the pic for all the deets!

It’s always an inspiring/encouraging moment to meet a fellow blogger/creative who has turned their side hustle into a full-fledged career. Towards the end of May, we were invited to attend an intimate lunch with fashion content creator Yan Yan Chan and after that initial meeting, we decided we wanted to know more about her so we reached out for an interview.
Read on to discover who Yan Yan Chan is and how she got to where she is now, discussing all the things in her life from blogging and fashion to photography, career highlights and her advice for anyone thinking of taking on a creative career.

Australian Fashion Week may be over for another year, but last week C/MEO COLLECTIVE’s new collections, ‘Liminal’ and ‘Ornate’ reinforced why the Adelaide-based label is every fashion lover’s top choice when it comes to snagging “it” pieces. We’ve always been big fans of their playful, classy and feminine designs, and so it was very exciting to receive the opportunity to interview the label’s Head Designer, Siham Elmawey!
