Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia has today announced that its 2016 event won’t go down as expected, with major changes in focus and timing enforced to better serve the Australian fashion industry and its global audience.

The highly anticipated event will now centre around resort collections rather than the Spring showcases of previous years, meaning Fashion Week Australia will become the first annual, organised presentation of resort collections. 

The decision to become focused on resort collections was made in collaboration with local industry leaders, designers and the NSW Government, and the 2016 schedule will include our biggest fashion names to cement Sydney as a global fashion capital. (more…)

Nicole Kidman Wins Over Our Forums with Interview’s Stunning October Cover (Forum Buzz)

Even with the likes of Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez and Miley Cyrus involved, we couldn’t hide our dismay over Interview‘s shockingly bad September covers. Now as the title gears up for the release of the October edition, Interview is back on track with its latest unveiling. After her washout U.S. Vogue appearance back in August, Nicole Kidman delivers a stunning black and white portrait cover, shot by Fabien Baron.

You had best believe our forum members were impressed from the onset. “That’s so pretty and peaceful,” praised anlabe32 with Miss Dalloway quickly adding, “Simple, but gorgeous” to the discussion.

“Aah, so much better than last month’s disaster,” approved JessRubik.

“Now THIS is good! It seems like people ditched September and are now making October better,” said TaylorBinque.

Sharing the same sentiments was Wolkfolk: “Definitely puts Vogue‘s August issue to shame. Such a beautiful cover with an even more stunning cover story. Fantastic photography & art direction by Fabien and once again Templer’s styling is perfection. Nicole looks gorgeous, love the emphasis on her amazing legs. Very sensual editorial.”

“Stunning cover, Nicole looks gorgeous and natural. Also, the editorial is amazing,” commented burbuja8910.

“When Fabien and his Interview team are at their best, they create something interesting, beautiful, captivating, that draws me in, even if I never cared for the subject. That’s the power of a visionary and his talented team. And looks like Interview is back on track after that issue,” noted Phuel.

Nicole’s cover story surely is a must-see. Check it out and drop us a comment here.

This New Menstruation Cup Will Text You When It’s Time to Refresh

You’ve probably heard of the Mooncup, a reusable menstruation cup that collects your monthly flow. But what about the Looncup? Recently debuted on Kickstarter, it’s the world’s first ‘smart’ menstrual cup that can actually text you when it’s time to refresh. With technology rapidly evolving, it was bound to happen.

How it works in a nutshell: the Looncup has its own app, which you download to your phone or Apple Watch in order to sync with your cup. Once the cup is inserted, it checks your menstrual cycle via a sensor and alerts you in real time as the cup fills. In other words, never risk overflowing again. It can also help you predict upcoming periods and can monitor the color of your menstruation blood for signs of stress or lack of sleep.  (more…)

Scientists Want to Test Karl Lagerfeld’s DNA for Superhuman Genes

Karl Lagerfeld is one of the most influential designers in the history of fashion. He’s headed Chanel for more than 30 years, has been in charge of Fendi for over half a century and even has his own label, Karl Lagerfeld. He designs seven whole collections each year for Chanel alone and at 82 years of age, he has no plans to slow down anytime soon. He told British Vogue in an interview for the November issue, “I think I’m pretty lucky that I can do what I like best in perfect conditions. I don’t have to fight with anybody. You know my contracts with Fendi and Chanel are for life? And I don’t feel tired at all. I hate slow people. Horrible.”

“I never mix them up in my mind,” he said, in regards to juggling three different fashion houses. “That is the secret of the story. First of all, I prefer not to analyse why or why not. I have the feeling that when I am doing Fendi I am another person to when I am doing Chanel or my own line. I have no personality. I have three. I never ask myself questions. I try to find answers. It’s a very pretentious line, no? I am in a way like a machine. I have electronic flashes, it’s true.”

In fact, scientists have taken note of his seemingly superhuman powers and want to test his DNA. “I was asked by somebody to do this,” Lagerfeld said. “Because they think I’m not normal. But I flatly refused. Unique pieces are unique pieces. But I think very flattering, huh? And also I was asked for skincare for men because they think I am remade. But I am not remade. I am all fake but not remade.”

Never change, Karl, never change.
