Those who attended the inaugural year would have been amazed by the quality of the music from day one. We remember being particularly impressed by a lovely bunch of lads who took control of Night Two of Fashfest 2013, who are now very well-known across Australia: SAFIA.
This year will be no different. After two years in the very capable hands of Michael Liu, the Gentleman DJ himself, Ashley Feraude is stepping in as Musical Director, and is very excited about how the programme is shaping up for this year’s event. Naturally, we wondered what was in store…
Canberra has secrets. I’d tell you what they are…but then I’d have to kill you. And I really don’t want to do that. Killing people is uncool. And it’s a hassle. Then you have to get The Wolf involved, and you don’t want to have to do that unless it’s absolutely necessary. Samuel L and Mr Travolta know all about that little dill-infused pickle.
Okay. You twisted my yellow-bellied, weak-willed arm. Come hither and I’ll tell you a few, and I won’t even kill you. Bonus!
Design is life. Don’t let anyone tell you differently. From the look of our shoes to the shape of our vehicles, to the colour of our coffee cup… this subtle form of propaganda sends continuous signals about who we are and what we love.
Fashion and furnishings will come together this week at Who Is..? A new exhibition at DesignCraft featuring a unique collaboration between local fashion designers Corr Blimey, and the incredible work of Walter Knoll.
Anyone who has been into the city during the last six months or so could not fail to notice the construction work at Bunda Street. What you may fail to notice is what the point of all this disruption is, given the result of the ongoing roadwork.
Children are silly. But they are also awesome.
Bright sparkling eyes and minds teeming with curiosity, queries, possibilities. Boundless energy. Stockpiles of smiles. Incorrigible enthusiasm. Cheeky demands. Spurious spouts of “That’s not fair!” Worldly wondering. Quirky questioning…and pestering persistence. Bless.
You wonder how they don’t just trip and fall flat on their faces. Truly. We’re talking models here. Models on catwalks, like those who will be applying at the 1 February casting call for Fashfest 2015.
Don’t get us wrong. It’s great when models don’t trip but how do they perfect placing one foot firmly in front of the other, exaggerating their hip movement and exaggerating the movement of their derrieres the way they do?
And what’s it all about anyway? Why don’t models on the catwalk just walk like the rest of us humans?
Sparrow-fart. That’s a Bob’s-your-uncle term for the earliest time of the morning. It’s about the time when all the sparrows get up and let out a little fart signifying their awakening at the crack of dawn. How cute.
Like a murmuration of starlings signifying dawn’s exact and equal opposite: dusk. The murmur is a welcoming, reassuring finish to the day. They’re such stars. Are they also lings then too? An underling star. Just little stars with so much stellar capacity. A star in training. A starling.
Canberra invokes a few things about the notion of service. Captain Obvious will remind you that the bushy-eyed bush capital is known for its public service, lip service and self-service.
Depending on how well you navigate through the tricky terrain of Personality ‘A’ types, or if you are such a type, this trinity tryst of services can be good, bad, ugly or just downright kooky. No more budgie smugglers! For the love of budgies please!
Even the most devoted denim fans gasped when Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears appeared before the paparazzi in double, trouble, stone-washed outfits. Whatever were they thinking? Ok, ok, perhaps a few fans thought ‘wow factor’ but our bet is most wanted to fade away.
So what’s the real scoop on matching denim outfits? Do you dare wear?
