HOT Chat: Stef Dadon and Elise Kausman of Up & Comers Fashion Market

We interrupt our usual blogging schedule today to bring you this week’s HOT Chat a couple of days early. That’s because Stef Dadon and Elise Kausman are launching the Up & Comers Fashion Market this Saturday 15 May, and of course you need to know about it now rather than on Sunday. RMIT Graduate Stef […]

HOT Chat: Jacqui Alexander of Skinny Nelson

So the fashion big guns are at Rosemount Australian Fashion Week in Sydney this week. On the other end of the spectrum, Melbourne provides such fabulous support for emerging young designers and I like to do my bit. So today’s HOT Chat is with Jacqui Alexander, an experienced fashion designer at the tender age of […]

HOT: Smart Alec, 71 Smith St, Fitzroy

Need a smart hat? Let Smart Alec help you. Michael Albert, the owner of Smart Alec, stocks a large assortment of hats, from straw boaters to top hats to the Truffaux panama hats (as seen at the Melbourne Design Market) as well as stylish cufflinks, man-bags, walking sticks and leather gloves – basically all the […]

HOT: Eco Fashionista AW10 Preview Night, Eco Fashionista showroom, 74 Moor St, Fitzroy

Autumn, my favourite season in Melbourne, has finally arrived. A new season means a new excuse to buy a lovely outfit, so I was thrilled to check out Eco Fashionista‘s preview of the Autumn/Winter 2010 collection at their brand new showroom in Fitzroy. The showroom, which is open for viewing by appointment, is located in […]

HOT: Oak Off Chapel, Level 1/33 Simmons St, South Yarra

One of the things I love about Melbourne is that it’s a city that nurtures and encourages creativity. Maybe it’s because we don’t have fabulous weather all the time (though personally I love it) or pretty beaches to swim in, but Melburnians really seem to enjoy delving into their own creative headspace. The vibe of […]

HOT: Marvellous March in Melbourne

I’m all for comfort food, opaque tights and scarves (I think it’s a reaction to growing up in sunny Queensland) – yay for Marvellous March! Marvellous March is also the name of a handy little booklet produced by That’s Melbourne with details of the big events around Melbourne that will make you love autumn. This […]

HOT: The Social Studio, 128 Smith St, Collingwood

Fitzroy/Collingwood seems to be the hotbed of social enterprise businesses in Melbourne (see my review of restaurant Charcoal Lane), and in late 2009 another one opened around the corner from me – The Social Studio. The Social Studio is a non-profit fashion studio space staffed by approximately 20 young members of Melbourne’s refugee community and […]

HOT Chat: Ashley Tell from Golden Palomino Vintage and Darling Clementine

Today’s HOT Chat is also a guest post by Poppy, a Melbourne blogger who I met at the Nuffnang Christmas Party and the author of Poppy Gets a Life (which you’ll see is a MEL: HOT Read). Poppy’s blog is all about her move off the corporate ladder into a job where she has the […]

HOT Chat: Kim Hurley of Marche Rouge

This week’s HOT Chat is with Kim Hurley, a visual merchandiser and organiser of the fabulous Marche Rouge market at Nicholas Buildings that I visited just before Christmas. Marche Rouge is back on next week from on Thursday 11 February and Friday 12 February from 11-7pm, and Saturday 13 February from 10-4pm, just in time […]
