Nimble as a Cat? How to Get the Model Walk.

by The Editor

Fashfest-5

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?

CIT Fashion Graduates: KINETIC 2012

by The Editor

Kinetic CoverStyle and Belco Mall do not particularly strike us as mutual concepts.  Typically, larger shopping centres tend to overreach, telling us how fashionable they are which inevitably ends up an exercise in self-delusion. Certainly though, Westfield Belconnen should be saluted for hosting a wonderful event last Saturday night (1 December): The 2012 graduating students of a CIT Bachelor of Design (Fashion Design) held a parade which demonstrated the skills and talent developed over the last three years.
