Adelaide Fashion Festival an opportunity to present South Australian fashion to the world

Le 20 octobre 2016, 05:10 dans Humeurs 0

FASHION is everything. That might seem kitsch for the creative director of the Adelaide Fashion Festival to say – but it is such an intrinsic part of life that is often underestimated.

Fashion has something that nothing else has. It has glamour, drama, excitement and emotion. Fashion is art – but it’s not static, it’s living; moving and tactile all around us.

Fashion represents creative expression. For our local designers in particular, when they come up with the concept of a garment to see it through the pattern-making stage, fabric selection and then final production, it is a dream fully realised.

That creative expression is also felt by the many seamstresses, pattern makers and assistant designers who support the making of these garments.

They are the ones who, along with the lead designer, get to be hands on with the beautiful textiles and drape and cut them into a silhouette that transforms the wearer from flat to fabulous.

We are still in the early days of measuring South Australia’s fashion industry but one thing we know is that it’s growing, and the Adelaide Fashion Festival contributes to that growth.

The festival has invested significant time with each of the designers being showcased to understand their businesses and mentor them in the opportunities of growth and exposure.

Bride Proves It’s OK to Wear Your Wedding Dress After the Wedding

Le 11 octobre 2016, 08:07 dans Humeurs 0

After your wedding ended, you probably never wanted to take off your dress. Between months of searching for the right gown, endless fittings, and hundreds of dollars spent on your dress, we don’t blame you. And you aren’t the only one who struggled to part with such a special gown.

One bride, Samantha Burns, from Cambridge, Mass., is so attached to her wedding dress that she has worn it repeatedly, including during everyday activities. Whether its golfing, fudge tasting, eating pancakes, or river cruising, no activity is too mundane for Burns’s gown. Every year on her wedding anniversary, she breaks out her wedding dress, because, what better way is there to channel the feelings from that day and reminisce about it than by getting back into that gown?

A relationship counselor and dating coach, Burns loves the extra attention her white strapless gown — with a sweetheart neckline and flower detailing on the skirt — attracts. “It’s a great endorphin rush that makes for fun stories and laughter with your mate,” wrote Burns, founder of “It’s collected some stains on the bottom, but I much prefer this than keeping it in a pristine box that will never see the light of day, or my husband’s adoring eyes.”

Burns married in 2014 and has celebrated two anniversaries since, doing everything from brunching to dancing, gown and all. “Playing golf was probably the most entertaining, because we love to play together and I drew quite a crowd at the driving range!” Burns told the Daily Mail.

She's been strutting her stuff on the catwalks at Milan Fashion Week.

And as Hailey Baldwin moved on to Paris, she brought a modern interpretation on Marie Antoinette, on Wednesday.

The 19-year-old model put on a busy display in a Balmain corset which pulled her in and up - not dissimilar to the saucy styles worn by the last Queen of France.

Leggy: She gave it a very modern twist, over an off-the-shoulder white Mugler shirt. which showcased her toned arms and elegant neck

She gave it a very modern twist, over an off-the-shoulder white Mugler shirt. which showcased her toned arms and elegant neck.

A black choker brought the outfit right up to date, and she flaunted her long toned legs with spray-on leather pants. 

The elegant daughter of actor Stephen Baldwin turned heads in the French capital, adding extra inches to her 5ft 7in frame with high Alaia boots. 

Even though she's been putting in the hours sashaying down the runway, the beauty looked fresh and flaunted her flawless skin nearly make-up free. 

The nepotistically-privileged teen had kept her tresses to a no-fuss style, sleeking it into a high-ponytail which she twisted. 

She accessorised with gold chains and a chunky ring.
