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.
Austrian designer Irina Vitjaz took a major step in her fashion career by unleashing her new brand at New York Fashion Week and introducing her creativity in the form of ‘Pure Couture’ to the United States (and the who’s who of fashion).

Self-taught hip-hop photography fixture Mel D. Cole first fell in love with the craft after buying a few disposable cameras on a whim to shoot a Common show in 2001. Known as one of the hardest working, most omnipresent photographers in the game, Mel documents everything and anything tied to parties, culture, and music.
Next week, he’ll be in Sydney for a one-night-only special exhibition showcasing his best photographs.
The timing could not have been better for John Legend and Common to release their new single, ‘Glory’.
Recorded exclusively for new movie, ‘Selma’, the film centers on the Martin Luther King Jr.-led civil rights marches that went down in 1965.
‘Glory’ is definitely an uplifting contribution to not only the movie itself, but also everything that is going on in the world right now.
