I don't know if it's because I am getting older, and perhaps somewhat grumpier, but of late I have been continuously disappointed by the amount of terrible websites there are to be found on the net. Just as nothing says "I don't care" faster than a set of tracksuit pants...
If you missed it, where were you? The Create:08 awards and party were a huge night and a great success, with a packed house sitting down to find out the winners of the ten categories available to enter this year, not to mention the unveiling of the overall winner and they whom the people chose.
One of the things I have found incredibly hard in working on my side project – Miss Blimey – whilst also working full-time on the amazing Desktop magazine, trying to have some kind of social life and playing Roller Derby (look it up – it's lots of fun) is following up on the 'actions' I have taken not only in promoting my 'brand' but also in the creation and marketing of products for my 'brand'.
Jo Spurling, editor of Desktop magazine, reports back on the trials and tribulations of holding your own exhibition.
With the excitement of L’Oréal Melbourne Fashion Week now behind us, I would like to highlight the catwalk 5 show, presented by Yen Magazine. Karen Walker, NOM*D, Antipodium, Claude Maus, Zambesi, Material By Product, Jessie Hill and boutique Cose Impanema feat. Comme des Garçons.

Other times, it can be good to diversify and try new things, especially in sketches and roughs. After all, how do you improve when you only work on what you're already good at?
With the start of the New Year, the exhaustion of the silly season, the hangovers and the heat induced lethargy, everyone must be in need of some inspiration. If you have the time, you can go and see shows, exhibitions, visit a gallery, but if you’re short on time and trapped on a computer, there’s plenty of inspiration to be found online.
Now that the nights are longer and the days are hotter, young designers have equipped us with an eclectic mix of day and night pieces to enjoy the summer festivities with.
I have a tricky task before me; writing about fashion. As the styles on the streets and in the stores are so diverse, it makes it hard to pinpoint specific trends.
