DALLIANCE June 2013
I am constantly inspired by my surroundings and find that people from different cultures who have different stories behind the lives are the most inspiring. This issue celebrates that - the lives of those all around the world.
This issue has been so much fun to do and it has definitely brought the adventurer/ traveller out of Laura and I even more (we didn’t even know that was possible) and like Laura my list of overseas adventures seems to be constantly growing and never ending. Lastly, I would like to thank all of those who contributed to our cover feature editorial, it was incredibly fun and exciting (an at the end, stressful!), but on a personal level it allowed me to experience my first ever shoot environment and with that it concreted by goal to become a creative director. I hope you enjoy the articles, design and fresh images and for all you who dream of travelling one country to another - you’re not alone! Lots of Love, Jasmine Wanderlust; a strong desire to travel. I seem to have a strong urge to travel the world, which has been with me since the age of seven and never seemed to go away. I have made endless lists of travel bucket lists and I am forever planning holidays to places I one day hope to visit. Ibiza, Mexico, London, Croatia, Greece, New York ... The list goes on and on. I wish to experience other cultures, meet new people and immerse myself into the way other people live. In this ‘International Style’ issue of Dalliance my two biggest passions, of fashion and travelling, came together in an issue which both Jasmine and I had so much fun to make. I have loved researching different designers from countries such as Japan and South America; reading amazing blogs from fashionista’s all over the globe and seeing the behind the scenes pictures from the shoot Jasmine organised in England (by the way, another big thank you to Jasmine and everyone who worked on the shoot-so much hard work, time and money went into the final images!) Lots of Love, 006

Get inspired by the masters of understated chic – the French. Think denim skinnies, half tucked shirts and black heels a la Emmanuelle Alt. Dressing current and modern with pared down basics is an art that denizens of the world's fashion capital have reÞned to perfection. It's a far cry from the bold and audacious styles that come down the runways at, say, London, but is no less striking and deÞnitely puts to sartorial sense the old adage “less is more”.

YASUKO FURUTA As everyone knows, success in the west is an important and crucial step for a brand trying to make it in the fashion industry. Yasuko Furuta, the founder and head designer of TOGA, built a Japanese clothing brand that has slowly but surely accomplished this feat.
TOGA, Furuta’s ready-to-wear line, was launched in 1997 and has steadily gained popularity in Japan and other countries around the world. In addition, Furuta created her secondary line, TOGA Pulla, which consists of more wearable dresses, jackets, and shoes. Over the past few years, TOGA’s innovative designs, presentations at Tokyo and Paris Fashion Week, and 30+ shops worldwide have landed its name into the mouths of the most fashionable streetwalkers and a spot at the top of international style’s most-wanted list. [Kendall Shieh] TOGA S/S ‘12
TOGA is quite similar to that of a fresh fruit concoction; it is a mixture of many beautiful things. Founder Yasuko Furuta strives to blend modern western design with traditional Japanese elegance, while also mixing street style and couture into her pieces. Many of the collections also blur the line between masculinity and femininity, creating a more unique and universal name for the TOGA brand.
Rochelle Whitnam grew up in Melbourne, Australia and is someone who has always had a fascination with clothing since a young age. At 19 years old, Rochelle moved to Noosa for a holiday where she met her husband-to-be, Tyson; she later moved in with him whilst working as a retail assistant and dreaming of studying fashion. Finally, at the age of 23, Rochelle enrolled at the Sunshine Coast Institure of TAFE to study a fashion diploma. It was here that she became determined to start her own label, with planning her trip to Bali to get her started. The official launch of Hungry Wolf The Label was on the 29th of May and it includes a range of luxurious leather and loose relaxed shapes with hints of glamour.
fill in the blanks with rochelle whitman I am a designer, but I wish I was a Contiki tour guide or a photographer. I am wearing Cheap Monday because they have the best high-waisted
jeans (I practically live in them). My favourite designers are Maya and Kelly from Maurie and Eve and my favourite models are either Bambi Northwood-Blyth or Abbey Lee Kershaw. I wish I could eat seared salmon sushi for the rest of my life and on my spare time I like to go to the beach, where Tyson will try to teach me how to surf and I also like spending my spare time having cocktails with the girls. If I could be anywhere in the world I would be dancing on the beaches of Ibiza!
TREND BY GABRIEL WALLER
MONOCHROME There’s something so inviting about black and white isn’t there? It’s simple yet so clean and fresh. Add a block print, an abstract statement or a classic palette and there you have it staring right back at you - the world of monochrome. It won’t need to scream or yell to stand out because let’s face it ... we’ve all fallen for it. It’s impossible not to; with this trend beaming worldwide both on and off the runway. Plus, with designers such as Riccardo Tisci at Givenchy and Alexander Wang adding a little (or a lot) into their latest collections you can’t help but ask yourself how many monochrome moments you’d like to have this season. Seen at: Givenchy, Alexander Wang & Marc Jacobs.
UPDATES g e o m e t r i c Let’s have a show of hands on whom can’t get enough of geometry class. No hands? No surprises there. Fast forward to 2013 and who knew geometry could take the fashion world by storm. In fashion, geometry can be summed up into two words: a statement. It’s all about taking that one extravagant piece, whether it is that dress with those wild squares, diamonds, rectangles or trapezoids and using it to your best possible potential. So grab your calculator and let’s count how many geometric patterns can be seen in your wardrobe this season. 112
TREND Colour, colour, and in even more colour. Don’t stop there though as we need that rich fabric and standout pattern to really top it off. Mix them all together and it’s like magic - you have yourself a geisha print. Inspired by Japanese culture, the Giesha trend is making a rapid comeback this season. Lucky for us it’s extremely easy to incorporate into our everyday wardrobe, so why not add it in for that touch of elegance to your office outfit or that speckle of boldness you need for a night out. Either way, be brave and let that inner geisha come out from within.
UPDATES The decade of change. Change in music, world events, automobiles, toys and surprise surprise even fashion. Anyone game enough to have a guess which decade Iâ€™m referring to? The 60s of course. Oh the joys of the 60s and how fortunate we are that the checker prints, short a-line hems and courageous colours have returned. Itâ€™s in full force this season with designers such as Prada, Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton incorporating a strong youthful vibe into their latest designs. So jump into that checker dress, pour yourself a scotch and soda and go back in time to the 60s. Seen at Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs & Moschino
