Campaigns and Couture: The political power of fashion

Isabelle Hellyer
No comments

From Parliament to Prada or Capitol Hill to Couture, it seems like fashion couldn’t seem further away from politics. But we mustn’t forget how easily fashion can change public perception of an individual, something that is utterly crucial in the political landscape. Some would argue that the image a leader projects is more influential than…

Disco, Dreams, Drama: The bewitching world of Lisa T.

Isabelle Hellyer
No comments

Lisa Twomey’s petite figure easily draws attention, a fact not belied by her relaxed demeanour and endearing way of speech. As the woman behind Australia label Lisa T, her diminutive frame is continually draped in heavily embellished garments of her own creation that combine elements of fine art and textile design to great effect.  Lisa’s…

I don’t have to dress for anyone: why the Dirty Girls were right about fashion

Isabelle Hellyer
2 comments

‘I don’t have to look nice for anyone’ explains a messy haired girl of 13, seated in a high school auditorium. Her name is Harper Willat and, along with her sister Amber, she was the subject of ‘Dirty Girls‘, a documentary filmed in 1996 that has been gaining a lot of attention over the past…

a plus size wardrobe

Sonya Krzywoszyja
No comments

It’s no secret I indulge and sometimes (OK, mostly) enjoy conspicuous consumption. I think fat women in particular have been denied the right to enjoy fashion and consume it the way that straight sized women have been able to (or, I suppose, the way that well-off women, who would likely to be able to afford…

witchery introduces a size sixteen

Sonya Krzywoszyja

This morning, I was reluctantly watching Sunrise (I know, I know) when, what I assume is a regular rotating panel of women came on to discuss the current issues. One of today’s current issues was: Australian retailer, Witchery, is now introducing a size sixteen to their range. The women were asked what they thought of…

is it okay: to go to the shops in your pyjamas?

Elizabeth Flux
3 comments

It seems as though life is really a costume party. There is set appropriate attire for specific occasions, and deviation from these norms will be met with raised eyebrows and questions about your ability to understand what is ‘good and proper’. While to a degree this might seem all very 1800s-oh-Mr-Darcy-please-hold-my-parasol, the underlying ideals that…

8fourteen – corporate paedophilia or a harmless fashion campaign?

Kaylia Payne
3 comments

As many of you know by now, I am extremely opinionated. To the point of being completely unreasonable sometimes. After reading Emma Rush’s piece, I was understandably on edge and ready to rip Witchery to shreds. After seeing pictures of the girls I was even more horrified; they look their age. Yes I have been…

if they can design for miss piggy, then why not plus-sized people?

Sonya Krzywoszyja
2 comments

With the new Muppets movie opening here on January 12th, there has been a renewed interest in all things Muppet, and in particular, Miss Piggy. I’ve always considered Miss Piggy a bit of a role model. I think she’s fearless, wears whatever she wants, gets what she wants on the sheer force of personality (and,…

my mind is not a mini skirt

Ruby Niemann
No comments

My skirt length is not proportional to my IQ. I would have thought this much would be a given in this day and age. I mean, there was such a thing as third wave feminism right? That wasn’t some sort of whacked out fever dream, right? And yet… I remember being 15 and having my…

a vintage story

lip magazine
No comments

A vintage dress is more than just a unique piece of clothing; it has a history. Coco Chanel once said, “Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky; in the street; fashion has to do with ideas; the way we live; what is happening.” Is that why vintage clothing…
