canberra’s biggest fashion event supports local designers and encourages diversity

lip magazine
No comments

  It all started with a question: ‘Why?’ Why didn’t Canberra have its own major fashion event? The capital had come into its own as a thriving mini-metropolis of culture and fashion, an inspirational place exploding with eclectic, imaginative minds harking from every corner of Australia and all over the world. For its size, Canberra…

Review – RAW: natural born artists launch, Canberra

Farz Edraki
One comment

(Image Credit) “This song is loud, like Academy is usually like,” jokes musician Michael Liu onstage, before picking up a violin. For those unfamiliar with Canberra’s clubbing haunts, here’s a quick rundown of Academy: vodka raspberries; ‘4some Thursdays’; foam parties. An unlikely location, then, for a night showcasing Canberra’s local artists. It’s probably the first…

Isabelle Hellyer

interview: fun machine

Marissa Paine

There was a time when Fun Machine was Canberra’s best kept secret. Not anymore, it seems, with the four-piece carting their sex-pop (plus glitter, lycra, facepaint) up and down the country for a series of shows promoting their new single, Naked Body. Naked Body sends a pretty clear message: celebrate yourself, because you’re beautiful.  It’s…
