HOW TO:

TAKE A SELFIE BY: LAUREN ROBERTS

THE DOS AND DON’TS OF THE MOST POPULAR STYLE OF PHOTO TAKEN TODAY THE FIRST KNOWN SELFIE WAS UPLOADED IN 2002 BY A YOUNG MAN WHO SPLIT HIS LIP OPEN IN A DRUNKEN ADVENTURE. HE WANTED TO KNOW IF CONTINUOUSLY LICKING HIS LIPS WOULD DISSOLVE HIS STITCHES FASTER AND UPLOADED THE IMAGE OF HIS MOUTH TO SHOW THOSE WHO WERE FOLLOWING THE THREAD. ELEVEN YEARS AFTER THAT, “SELFIE” WAS NAMED 2013’S OXFORD DICTIONARY’S WORD OF THE YEAR.

W W W. FJ O R D E M A G A Z I N E . C O M

And from a graphic picture of a bruised lip, the selfie has evolved into a typically flattering picture that a person takes of themselves and uploads onto one or many social media websites. What made the selfie phenomenon take off so fast? Some very intelligent telephones and the surge in social media are perhaps some of the contributing factors. Not every selfie is a good selfie and there are some clear dos and definite don’ts in the taking of such a photo. Some simple rules before you start snapping;

1 2 3 4

Pay attention to your background. Don’t take a selfie where you look gorgeous but proudly displayed in the background is four empty pizza boxes and some old socks. Don’t over-filter. Yes, filters can be incredible. And they make our skin look flawless. But if you cannot recognise yourself in the image, it’s not really a selfie. Do use a variety of backgrounds and ensembles in your selfies. We all have that Instagram friend who uploads a dozen photos a week which look the exact same. Slick on some red lipstick, shoot the photo in a new café or wrap a brightly coloured scarf around your neck – make your pictures interesting. Don’t use extreme high angles. Yes it makes you look thinner, but this is because it also makes your head look massive. We are human beings, not Bratz dolls. Soften that angle.


AUTUMN 2014

5 6

Master the mirror selfie. Do practice taking pictures in the mirror – mirror shots are perfect to show off a new dress you just invested in or a hideous poncho that your grandmother knitted you for Christmas that you feel obligated to wear to her birthday brunch. Don’t take photos in the mirror with a flash so that half the image is a blinding light and you are dark and shadowy. Do wear the same amount of garments that would in other photos. In other words, if you are the kind of confident person who would ordinarily be tagged in bikini shots, more power to you. But if you aren’t – don’t take selfies which feature you sans pants or to show off your new bra. Might just attract the wrong sort of attention. Just think about what your boss/mum/partner’s mum would think seeing that picture of you whilst scrolling down their news feed.

7

Do smile – don’t pout or pose with a duck-face expression. About 0.34% of the population can pull off the duck-face pose without looking cheap. Smiling is a much more flattering and natural way to pose.

These oh so simple rules will get you on the right track to taking a good selfie. Try to be a little bit creative with your pictures. And have fun.

INVITING TRUE REALITY

INVITING TRUE REALITY BY: GEORGE SERAPHIM

W W W. FJ O R D E M A G A Z I N E . C O M

DECISIONS ARE DIFFICULT AND THE VALUE OF DECISIONS ARE HEAVILY OVERLOOKED. THROUGHOUT YOUR LIFE THERE WILL COME A TIME WHERE YOU WILL HIT CROSS ROAD, A TESTING STAGE IN ANYONE’S JOURNEY THROUGH THIS LIFE. CROSS ROADS HAVE THE POWER TO ENHANCE OUR LIVES BECAUSE THEY DETERMINE WHO WE ARE GOING TO BECOME IN LIVING OUT WHAT WE CHOOSE TO INVITE INTO OUR LIVES.


AUTUMN 2014

Determining the best possible outcome to anything is difficult, life is a road and a pathway, but in actual true reality life is experiences all around us, and we perceive those experiences based on how we have processed what we have created already and our minds are cultured and are preprogrammed based on a set of belief systems we have fortified within ourselves. The experiences we face are filtered through these layers of memory and what can be presented to us as real opportunities sometimes can be missed because of a misjudgment on our behalf. As trick y as life can seem sometimes we must remember that the answer to anything is within us. This is what a lot of people have forgotten and because of this many people spend their lives lost in a sea of confusion or

erratic behaviour and circumstances which inhibit them from creating what they truly want because they have looked for the answer outside of themselves. It is heavily important to remember that the actual real journey is lived from within. The answers to our most troubled dilemmas exist only within us, thus the path you seek with respect to the highest good for you is within your own heart and it is a compass that never sleeps. Confusion at its most part happens when we have lost the will to dig deep and ask ourselves the hard questions, because the hard questions always invite us to clean up what doesn’t work in our lives and can cause huge shifts in or way of being in our day to day activities. Life is a puzzle sometimes and because of this it forces us to re-think and re-shape ourselves to adapt to changing circumstances because life is never permanent.

Understanding impermanence means that you accept what comes to you, in whatever shape or form because accepting anything will collapse it entirely and will resolve most issues anyone can face, because nothing is ever permanent, all things change because all things are energy and nothing can ever stay in its same form, thus seeing all things in this middle path invites so much tranquility into our minds that we lose filters which can judge things as black or white and we transform our inner universe completely, moving on and living a more grander vision of ourselves than ever experienced before.

FJORDE STYLE REUBEN CHEOK [WWW.REUBENCHEOK.COM]

BLACK EDITION At this year’s Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival [VAMFF], the black & white monochromatic theme was strong for this season’s style trend. With Christina Exie, Kathryn Beker to even “red gown” specialist, Alex Perry all jumped onto the trend by releasing demure, classically tailored cuts, suits and dresses in black and white. Project Runway Australia winner of last season, Christina Exie wowed the Independent Runway crowd with her latest collection, with stunning knee-length white sleeveless vests that almost colour run into black at the hems. The contrast was bold and striking, in a finished in a fashion that appeared the ends of white vest to be dipped into a vat of black ink and left to hung dry. It was artistic and eye catching no matter which way you looked at it. Jaggar’s abstract black and white bovine print was featured in short sleeve shirts to stunning sleeveless, collared dresses. Topped off with a black fedora hat and black leather ankle booties, the styling was simplistic but stunning nevertheless. Michael’s collection continued with the nautical theme, infusing the thick black and white stripes with another hot trend - cut out shapes. The spaghetti strapped striped dress actually featured a high waisted skirt and a cropped top that was asymmetrically cut to only show a peak of flesh like a midriff top. This helped to break up the monotony of same direction of the bold horizontal stripes, and teamed with classic white heeled pumps added a demure and elegant touch.

monochromatic theme with sheer panelling in the dress, contrasting the dramatic long sleeved black sweetheart neckline dress with a white high neck turtleneck collar top and sleeve cuffs. Shakuhachi and Carla Zampatti both used black and white patterns in each of their collection. Shakuhachi continued their psychedelic take with a mod-inspired three quarter sleeved dress with black neckline and trimming at the hem and sleeves to offset the diamond pattern. Carla Zampatti featured a bold snake patterned halter neck sleeveless dress that X Factor winner, Dami Im wore to perform at the Target Rocks The Runway. Not to leave the men out of this monochromatic theme, both Autonomy and fashion graduate, Yan Wang demonstrated two complete extremes of how men can wear and experiment with this black and white trend. Autonomy featured the current trend of mixing materials in one garment - with their black leather jacket with opposing leather finishes and an asymmetric zipper to make their leather jacket stand out from the many array of leather jacket available for men. A simple white V-neck tee teamed up with boots created a relaxed, yet masculine look.

On the other monochromatic spectrum, fashion graduate Yan Wang wowed the crowd at the National Graduate Showcase runway with psychedelic bold contrasting patterns. Each garment, whether pants, shirts to even jackets had two or more different prints that really highlighted the structural elements of each garment. Combined with an item Alex Perry’s latest collection took the power in a contrasting black and white pattern suit back from the 80’s and refreshened as a whole ensemble created a vivid and it up with a subtle textured pattern. The shoulder pads were present, but not in excess. painfully memorable look. Even traditionally cut garments was given a makeover with Asymmetric, off-the-shoulder sheath dress with a long zipper at the back was modern and excessive and unnecessary folds to craft a bold look that only the brave fashionista can bang on trend. Michael Lo Sordo mixed the pull off. It was pure wearable art collection. 20

WHITE EDITION White has always been a pure and natural tone to wear in the cooler autumn-winter season. And this year is no exception. No longer plain, dull or angelic, at this years Virgin Australia Fashion Festival [VAMFF], “white” in all shades and forms were seen - from the chic casualness from Target, to fashion graduates Molly Younger and Gabrielle Brown, to established brands like Zhivago - they all tonal blocked and accentuated the purity of white in each different collection.

For men, the all white, tonal blocking was not quite evident or widespread for fear of looking like a 90’s boy band cast off member. Instead, white garments are an essential part of every man’s wardrobe - from crisp white business shirts to white dinner jackets to the humble V-neck tee. The case in point, unlike the head-totoe colour blocking that is storming For those apprehensive to wearing all white in the ready-to-wear sector of womenswear, only winter, take note from Target’s casual white a key garment should be white. The white tees, teamed up with blue stoned washed tee is a perennial favourite for every man at jeans for that instant classic and comfortable every age and every body shape.

Molly Younger, another student graduate, kept her white materials raw and unprocessed. Utilising long sleeveless coats and short sheath dresses all in the same tone, the only way to keep warm were exemplified by the excessive long arm gloves and thigh high boots. This look may not be for everyone, but it shows that tonal blocking all in the same shade of white does not equate to angelic or elegant. In fact the juxtaposition of the purity of the colour that white represents,

L’OREAL PARIS ELNETT SATIN DIAMOND HOLD AND SHINE HAIRSPRAY

One of the finest inventions in the hair industry is hairspray - and with that statement, L’Oreal Paris Elnett Hairspray is most definitely one of the best products to come out of it.

FJORDE: What are your favourite simple pleasures of life? CLEA: My favourite simple pleasures are a hot shower, a warm coffee and catching a glimpse of a rainbow. F: Tell us about the establishment of your label, and how it came to be what it is today. C: Limedrop is inspired by the spirit of possibilities! It all started as an idea to create something unique and inspiring allowing our customers to feel confident. We set up a studio in Fitzroy and started creating original prints and taking a rucksack of designs to local stores. Now, it has grown to stocking into boutiques around Australia and Dubai, showing at the major fashion festivals, creating six pop-up shops throughout Melbourne and Sydney, as well as our online store. F: Where do you find inspiration for your beautiful designs? C: Our inspiration for Limedrop is based on the feeling you get when you are traveling, the excitement of the new and capturing memories that will last a lifetime. We also aim to make clothes that are easy care and travel well- whether it’s a weekend away or a international trip. F: What type of role does black and white play in the life of Limedrop? C: While, Limedrop known for colour and prints, we also have a strong focus on black and white. This season, we have monochrome butterflies and black & white crystals, as well as subtle details with quilted silk bombers in black and feminine dresses with cutouts - as your perfect little black dress.

F: How do you aim to add something to your Limedrop followers life; in the way of social media? C: I believe that social media is a great way we individually connect with our friends and our community. Our aim is to give information, insights and funny stories to our customers. We aim to create a sense of belonging and connection. As an independent fashion label, we listen to our customers and have used their feedback to develop new ranges- such as the lingerie range of slips and unders called Elle De by Limedrop. F: How does your label illustrate the simple ways of life? C: Limedrop captures fun, joy and taking time to appreciate the details. F: How do you picture the world if it was all black and white? C: Black and white has a vintage charm. It reminds me of pure, classic times of the past. I think I would miss the spectrum and the magic of refracted light. F: What is next for Limedrop? Any exciting projects, collections, colorations coming up? C: There is a lot planned for Limedrop this year including the launch of our first flagship store in Flinders Lane and collaborations to be announced in summer.

FREE IS BETTER BY HANDE CERKEZ

IT’S ABSURD TO THINK THAT THESE DAYS WE CAN EASILY ACCESS FREE WI-FI ALMOST ANYWHERE WE GO, COMPARED TO A BOTTLE OF WATER, ONE OF LIFE’S NECESSITIES, SETTING US BACK AT LEAST THREE DOLLARS. THE TEAM AT FREE IS BETTER HAVE FELT THIS SAME ANNOYANCE, AND AS A RESULT HAVE DECIDED TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

Free is Better provides free bottled water throughout Australia. Their concept is both smart and innovative, with the cost of their production offset by selling advertising space on their bottles to like-minded companies. This Melbourne born inspiration is a movement that is on a mission to provide free bottled water to consumers and encourage a different way of thinking. Also environmentally conscious, Free Is Better strive to create the best possible solutions for their consumers. Each Free is Better bottle is which is made from oxobiodegradable plastic that breaks down 100 times faster than regular PET bottles. Sourced from the McPherson Ranges in Queensland, Free is Better is an environmentally alternative to its bottled water counterparts. The Free Is Better movement is a niche and so appeals to a new generation of consumers. The trendsetters, tech-savvy, socially and environmentally conscious consumers, those appreciate what Free is Better stands for. In such, Free is Better is for generation Y, the leaders of contemporary youth culture.

Only recently, Free is Better made an appearance at the 2014 Carbon Festival. The premier creative culture event was joined by the likes of creative residents speakers, including fashion designer Mark McNairy, DJ Paul Devro and photographer Mike O’Meally. As well as the Carbon Festival, Free is Better also regularly collaborates with Hero Subs. The New York inspired sub chain, joined forces with the Free is Better team to promote their O-Week Block Party. The event saw local DJ’s and students making the most of the all things free at the o-week event. Providing consumers with an innovative option to traditional bottled water, Free is Better realistically changes our conception of paying for water, as well as representing themselves as an avenue and promoter for all things creative and new. Head to their website, follow them on social media, pick up a bottle and stay tuned!

INTRODUCING GABRIELLE BROWN

GABRIELLE BROWN. IT’S A NAME THAT WILL SOON BE MAKING WAVES AMONGST THE AUSTRALIAN FASHION SCENE, THANKS TO THE 2014 NATIONAL GRADUATE SHOWCASE PRESENTED BY TARGET. GABRIELLE WAS ONE OF THE TWELVE BRIGHT TERTIARY GRADUATES HAND-PICKED TO SHOWCASE THEIR WORK ON THE MAIN STAGE AT VAMFF, IN A CELEBRATION OF YOUNG AND INNOVATIVE FASHION MINDS.

The white-hot pieces of Gabrielle’s collection ‘Kinesis’ had the runway scorching, lit to life by show-stopping pieces of extreme structure, embellishment and 3D printing. RMIT graduate Gabrielle now holds the chance to work on a designer collaboration project with Target, and win a $25,000 grant towards her designing career. We caught up with the 23-year-old budding designer, and chatted about her bright future. FJORDE: Where did your love for fashion and designing come from? GABRIELLE BROWN: It stems from when I was little. I was pretty creative. I would make Barbie clothes and things. Then obviously I was really into art, so I did textiles at school and continued that through every single year level. I loved that and art, and I thought ‘this is really where I want to head’. That went into studying at Uni and finding my feet I guess. F: How would you describe your aesthetic? G: I’m intrigued with textiles, so it’s quite feminine and structured in terms of the different embellishments I use. It’s very intricate and detailed.

38

W W W. FJ O R D E M A G A Z I N E . C O M

F: Where does your inspiration come from, and more specifically where did your inspiration come from for Kinesis? G: It’s pretty much based from subjects I did at Uni. In my final year, it’s all about material manipulation, what you can do with different fabrics and all the things you can explore. I was really inspired by what you can do with fabric; testing things to their limit and creating sculptural forms from a bit of fabric. In terms of the 3D printing side of things, I did it as an elective in my second year at Uni. That was the first time I’d ever done it. I was really inspired, and I wanted to see where that would take me in years to come. I delved into it in my final year. F: Your whole collection consists of whites. Was there a reason for that? G: Originally I wanted to introduce blues. I think I stayed with that colour palette so it didn’t detract from the lots of details, embellishments or 3D printing. If it’s all the same colour palette, you probably would notice a bit more.

A TRIO OF CHIC MODELS LOUNGE LANGUIDLY IN A CHINESE RESTAURANT, DECKED OUT IN JULIETTE BOOTH ENSEMBLES, LETTING THEIR SAN CHOI BAO GO COLD, AS THEY GAZE INTO A YAWNING CAMERA APERTURE.

A lone skater hurtles through Chinatown in another vibrant piece by Juliette Booth; bright hanging lanterns and cosy shop-fronts flashing by as he flies down Little Bourke Street in his designer skate-wear. “I wanted to bombard the senses,” designer Juliette Booth muses, when asked about the inspiration for her graduate collection, featured in the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival runway this year. The editorial shoot, and short fashion film featuring her work are indicative of the androgynous, utilitarian nature of her designs – crossing the divide between male and female clothing, and fusing high fashion with street-wear. At first look, Juliette Booth’s graduate collection is not particularly subtle. In fact, it is a feast of embroidered, structured, digitallyprinted and multi-layered sportswear pieces. A bombardment of delicious morsels. Visual yum cha. And just like yum cha, viewing each piece in the collection contributes finally to a sense of being simply and deliciously replete. Yet behind the eclecticism of her output, Juliette has a simple design philosophy. “I want to make garments that are comfortable; not tight, not constricting – things you can move around in,” she says. “I like that kind of androgynous, oversized look. And the idea of wearing something different, having fun with what you wear.”

“I like to dress like that, and I think a lot of people feel the same.” Her graduate collection features slouchy sportswear silhouettes splashed with hazy digital prints of abstracted flora and seemingly dystopian cityscapes. The photographic elements are the mainstay for the collection, interlaced with detailed embroidery and brass metal hardware. These complex and vibrant design elements work together to make wearable, androgynous pieces that clearly encapsulate Juliette’s own style aesthetic – almost as a natural extension of her own wardrobe. “I’m really into skiing, so the snow and the skate scene has influenced my work quite a bit. A lot of my inspiration is drawn from street wear and street style,” she says. “I’d love to collaborate with a snowboard label like Burton, maybe to bring out a ski range… I think my designs would translate really well to that outerwear industry.” “I also looked a lot in to Japanese street style, and Tokyo fashion week – that really inspired me because I think Japanese people have a really fun sense of style. They wear things that you wouldn’t normally see together,” Juliette muses. With her perspective of the body as a canvas, and clothing as the artwork, Juliette says she wanted her designs to be individual, re-interpreting classic sporting jerseys, sport shorts, and clip on track pants, using similar lines to tie the pieces together.

The photographic digital prints were key to the collection – drawn from photos taken by Juliette on her travels through Ukraine, Norway and Switzerland.

“The way I worked for my grad year, I’d design one or two outfits, then every other outfit evolved from that. They were in a constant state of evolution,” she says.

“Whenever I travel, I’m always taking photos,” she says.

While so many designers in Melbourne steer clear of bold hues and too much drama, Juliette says she likes that her designs are unique.

“Photography was my other love. I couldn’t decide whether I should do fashion or photography, so I decided to do fashion and could always do photography later.” The resulting digitally scanned prints from her Holga film camera are unique and add a personal touch to a collection that is already very much a natural expression of self. “I thought it would look cool to add structure to the silk fabric, and incorporate embroidery. I matched each photograph story with the quilting type… I think it added another dimension into my work,” she details. This type of gradual development is part of Juliette’s design process; she explains she is constantly generating ideas for pieces in her head.

“The current leaning in fashion design can be quite minimal, quite black or white, maybe some grey. I think that’s really indicative of Melbourne design, but mine’s a little bit different.” Simply put, Juliette Booth’s graduate collection is thematically-eclectic, highlytextural and multi-hued, and an organic expression of her own aesthetic. It channels her outside interests of skiing, travel and photography into her passion for fashion, infusing her designs with the simplest but most important asset in this business: heart.

AUTUMN 2014

MAN’S STRUGGLE AND PREOCCUPATION WITH BOTH GROOMING AND HAIR REMOVAL PREDATES CIVILISATION AS WE KNOW IT AND TAKES US BACK TO THE STONE AGE, ROUGHLY 100,000 B.C., WHEN NEANDERTHAL MAN FIRST STARTED PLUCKING HAIR FROM HIS BODY.

Consequently the history of the barber’s trade is an extensive one, dating back at least as far as the Middle Ages. Historically, barbers often served as both surgeons and dentists. The traditional barber’s pole, with a helix of red and white stripes, often revolving courtesy of an electric motor, denotes the two crafts – red for surgery and white for barbering. In ancient times a young man’s first shave, tonsura, was considered an essential part of his transition from childhood into manhood. Located in South Yarra, Kings Domain is an archetypal barbershop with a modern-day twist. Owned by Joey Scandizzo, former Australian Hairdresser of the Year and his former apprentice and protégé of once upon a time, Aaron Chan, clients are in guaranteed good hands. The concept of Kings Domain came to Chan whilst vacationing in Buenos Aires. He says of the project: “What we wanted to do was to create a relaxed environment where guys could come and have a beer, chill out and get a good quality haircut. We’re trying to do something new here and create an atmosphere where guys feel comfortable but providing salon-quality service. As our logo says we do ‘superior cuts’ – that’s our main focus.” As well as superior cuts, Kings Domain also provide hot towel shaves. A warm towel is placed on the skin to invigorate and open the

pores, which then allows a closer cut with a straight blade razor. Alternatively you can book a ‘Royal Treatment,’ which is a cut and a shave conjointly. Upon entering the establishment, the rich scents of aftershave and masculinity fill the air. The shop is decked out with both traditional and ornamental trimmings to create a balanced environment for a man who wants a basic, no-fuss trip to the barber but to feel pampered at the same time. The 1950s solid brass fittings complement the white tiles, French oak, leather chairs, marble benches, oak tables and wall decorations. It would be easy to understand why someone might be under the impression that they’ve been miraculously transported into a simpler and more refined era. The blokey King’s Domain is reminiscent of both an old English gentlemen’s club and an American cabin in the woods. Upon creation in 2013 designer, director Matt John of South Yarra studio The Anatomy had the responsibility of branding and handling the shopfront’s interior. The goal was to recreate a feeling of old world charm in a clean and structured way. So whether you’re looking for a straight shave à la Sweeney Todd or a timeless haircut with diligent precision and respect for traditional methods the quintessential Kings Domain is clearly the place to go for a guilt-free indulgence all whilst enjoying a beer.

SMART PHONE

COFFEE

An easy way to check your bank balance or check-in at dinner. Our phones are a mini porthole into our world and the apps we download help us in day-to-day life. Social media helps us to keep in touch with distant friends and plan our weekends. More practical apps – those which connect us to our bank accounts, employers, future employers and help us navigate are easy to become reliant on. And, of course, there are the telephone basic essentials – the calling and the texting – which we rely on to communicate with the people in our lives.

We live in a fast-paced world. One with a lot to achieve and barely enough caffeine to get it done. Coffee is a basic essential of our lives, especially if one lives in Melbourne. A short walk down Degraves Street or a stroll through the South Melbourne Markets is sure to result in a hot cup of delicious caffeinated goodness improving your life and increasing your focus.

MYKI

PASSPORT

Today, we don’t need the car as much as we need the travel card. Most major Australian (and international) cities will have their own version of the Melbourne Myki (Perth has a SmartRider and London has the Oyster Card) and by loading it up with credit we can easily travel to and from where we need to go. In built up areas, it’s the cheap, easy alternative to a car.

A passport is our key to the rest of the world. International travel has never been easier or cheaper and with tours spanning the globe we are literally able to go anywhere we want. Want to run with the bulls? Float in the Red Sea? Ski the soft snow in Japan? See the Taj Mahal? Shop in Los Angeles? Gamble in Vegas? We can - have passport, will travel.

CREDIT CARD

RUNNING SHOES

We are the generation of impulse decisions and purchases. If we want to own or do something, we will do it with the help of our plastic best friend. A ‘tap and go’ credit card also makes a lot of basic buys (like coffee, food, parking and clothing) easier and we need the numbers on the card to shop online. On a practical level, a credit card (making and repaying purchases) helps to build up a good credit rating. A good credit rating makes signing onto a new phone contract, obtaining a loan and purchasing property a realistic and viable option.

Even if we don’t always run in them, owning a good pair of gym shoes is part of today’s life. Don a pair to compete one of the many of fun runs which follow the tracks around Australia. Wear them to try Yoga, to cycle your way through a spin class, to try a new martial arts program or to sweat through a gym session. As well as the obvious comfort factor, owning a pair of running shoes is important – never know when they might come in handy.

We need a smart phone, coffee, a travel card, a credit card, a passport and a good pair of running shoes to survive life in today’s world. But that’s not all we need. We, as collective generation, are all rather different from each other. Apart from those six little necessities, we all want and need different things to help us navigate our way through modern life. Some of us need a constant wifi connection, some of us need our cars, some of us need a gym membership and some of us need our children by our sides.

GOTO

BY LUCY PILZ [WWW.SKEETERANDSCOUT.COM]

THE NEWEST BASE BEAUTY BRAND FROM ZOE FOSTERBLAKE

THE RANGE

Zoe Foster-Blake has become a name so entrenched in the beauty vernacular over the past decade. She is as iconic to the beauty industry as meat pies and VB are to ‘Downunder’, so it is little surprise she has birthed a new beauty range - Go-To - that has the beauty and social media realm sparking conversation again like chatty neighbours over the fence. Why?! Because it is actually totally rad, is devoid of nasty ingredients and fits perfectly in to the current market of hyperaware consumerism. As the name suggests, Go-To is every gal’s base skincare that kicks your skin’s ass minus those pesky chemicals that are used as ‘fillers’ in too many skincare products. Go-To removes the standard confusion by providing all that’s needed for strong, healthy, happy skin to flourish and injects life into your complexion via botanical recipes. Launching with a thoughtful edit of five essentials: lip balm, cleanser, moisturiser, exfoliant and multipurpose body oil: Go-To offers the perfect base skin care routine, whether that skin is teenage and temperamental or lasered and lined.

An ultra-hydrating and lightweight all natural face cream that defends against premature ageing. Very Useful Face Cream sits beautifully under makeup, is a perfect daily moisturiser and is ideal for travel. Skin looks bright, happy and healthy, feels soft, smooth and supple, and is impeccably protected.

ZOE: I thought there wasn’t enough skin care on the market. I jest, I jest! There is plenty enough, and a lot of it is great... but that’s part of the problem, I think women, in fact I know women get confused and frustrated by all of the options; they just want to know what works, what to use and how to use it. No bullshit, just straight up, simple stuff that will make their skin look and feel good. So, because I’m in the privileged position of being a beauty editor, and having amassing a tonne of knowledge about which products and more specifically, which ingredients work, with having so much incredibly honest, candid feedback from women, I thought, maaaaybe I could combine these two, and make a very simple, failsafe, fun, foolproof range of skin care that’s easy and enjoyable to use. FJORDE: What sets Go-To apart from the rest of the skincare market?

ZOE: “Go-To is uncomplicated, a word not generally associated with skin care. It was created by a beauty editor with a decade What sets Go-To apart from other pure brands of experience in response to feedback is the fact that it is made in Australia and New from women regarding their confusion and frustration at the skin care market, so it is Zealand, and at the core of every product are naturally active ingredients that work wonders. intentionally simple, failsafe, foolproof, effective and easy to use. It is also completely There is no tolerance for nasties or pointless pure and suitable for all skin types. And ingredients that don’t work their magic - it truly is revolutionising the Australian skincare finally, it doesn’t take itself too seriously. market, and will overhaul your skin minus the There’s enough of that in the industry already.” fuss.

Go-To Lips!

Go-To Properly Clean

Lips! is a deeply restorative, soothing and moisturising saviour for dry and cracked lips. It uses only the most beneficial and potent ingredients to ensure lips are deeply nourished, soothed, protected and revitalised.

A gentle cleanser that swiftly removes grime, build-up, pollutants and makeup without stripping the skin or upsetting pH levels.

Go-To Exfoliating Swipeys Go-To Very Useful Face Cream

FJORDE: What inspired you to create GoTo?

The unique, single-use exfoliating face pads remove dead skin cells, refines skin texture, minimise the appearance of fine lines and moisturise in a flash, and all without harsh scrubbing. Each pad is soaked in gentle, naturally occurring AHAs (lactic acid) as well as ultra-hydrating almond oil, mandarin and lemon essential oils plus aloe vera to leave the skin fresh, happy and glowy.

Go-To Exceptionoil A luxurious and completely pure do-it-all balm/oil that smells like the kind of place you’d rather be, Exceptionoil heals and soothes dry skin, flyaway hair, cuticles, heels and all those ‘rough bits.’ The natural oils that are lost when skin is exposed to the sun, wind, cold, air-con, heaters and flying are replenished, and skin is left soft and hydrated.

TINNING STREET

TINNING STREET BY JAMES BANHAM

RIGHT IN THE CENTRE OF AN AREA OF MELBOURNE’S URBAN SPRAWL WHERE THE CONCENTRATION OF ARTISTS PER CAPITA IS THROUGH THE ROOF, TINNING STREET PRESENTS IS A GALLERY THAT HOUSES THE WORK OF EMERGING ARTISTIC TALENT.

It’s not overwhelmingly big, it’s not impressively decadent, but what it lacks in superficial grandeur, it makes up for in the work it hangs on its walls, drapes from its surfaces and allows to consume its space.

applications to exhibit with an open mind. Regardless of what message the artist is trying to convey, Australian art has its own voice and movement, something Tinning Street exists to foster.

A dream of Belinda Wiltshire, the woman behind it all, Tinning Street Presents is as she so eloquently puts it: an easily approachable space that displays the work of artists who are in the here and now.

She prefers to bust-up the collections they exhibit at Tinning Street so as to be more inclusive and showcase pieces other than black and white drawings.

It exists because the artists do. Belinda understands that the painstakingly long months and even years that go into the creation of some truly outstanding pieces of art deserve all the recognition they can get. The gallery shows mainly 2D works and while the gallery continues to branch further and further afield, they definitely don’t stop at only one particular artistic style in their selections of whom they exhibit. “We have been known to exhibit some really compelling installations and performance pieces,” she said. “I’d describe us as more of a kaleidoscope; in place of mirrors we have our walls and instead of coloured beads we have an ever-changing abundance of art rippling through.” Belinda fondly recalled one of their first installations, which steered clear of their sometimes obvious gravitation toward wallhung work in stylised colours: “The work of installation artist duo Turner and Ritchie [was essentially focused on] one cubic meter of hand-dyed red sand sifted into a perfect pile in the centre of the gallery and lit only by two soft spot lights… . It was certainly one of the simplest concepts we’ve ever attempted, but it was also by far one of the most profound. The simplicity of the piece made room for the viewer to experience it with their other senses heightened.” Clearly their open-mindedness knows no bounds. It’s true though, that Belinda receives all the 114

“[Black and white] are the building blocks for everything, art or otherwise. I think they’ll always be received well as they leave so much room for personal experience and interpretation. The best art is the art that doesn’t give too much away. Because of Australia’s progression in contemporary art, places like Tinning Street Presents can exist and do so with demand. As Belinda explained, the country as a whole is now more connected with the world than ever before, which benefits Australian artists’ efforts. “We’re finally shaking the cultural-cringe and proving we’re not afraid to be contenders in the international art scene,” she said. “Australia has its own feel and energy that gets our attention.” It’s that attention to Australian art with a message that drives the business of Tinning Street, which has an impressive turnover of two week exhibits every fortnight, making the gallery a busy place on any given week. Australian art has been a slow, but bright burner from its earlier days of influential artists like John Brack and Sidney Nolan. From there, the movement has expanded and the quality has shot skyward, allowing such places as Tinning Street Presents to really shine. With talks and plans always in the works on how the gallery can work more with emerging talent and raise both the profile or itself and the people it works with, Tinning Street Presents is a jewel in the artistic crown of Brunswick that can’t be missed.
