New Hair Extensions Store hits Bondi Beach – Sydney

Hair Extensions Worldwide - Bondi Beach - SydneyEver wanted hair extensions in a hurry for that special occasion and could never find an actual hair extension shop in Sydney, we’ll you love a the new hair extension store in Bondi Beach, Sydney which has over 900+ hair extension products. Hair Extensions Worldwide founder, Mr Peter Sollner found that there was no real place were both retail customers  and salons could visit to see the actual product and colour match hair extensions at the same time.  Mr. Sollner said “Most hair extension companies sell online, however it’s hard to see the actual colour of the hair as hair colour reflects light extremely well and is hard to photograph. That’s why we wanted to ensure hair extension customers can actually come into our showroom and colour match directly to their hair”.

Hair extensions are prominently sold through Salons or online, however Hair Extensions Worldwide is changing these common channels and aims to sell many different brands to suit customer tastes.  “Most sellers both salons and online store only offer one brand, we’re the only company were customers have the choice of selecting from various qualities and types. Our aim is to become a supermarket

of hair extensions for both Sydney and around the world”.

You can contact Hair Extensions Worldwide.com either by SMS/Calling 0414 698 441 or visting their website www.hairextensionsworldwide.com . You can make an appointment to visit their showroom by SMS/Calling 0414 698 441 Monday to Sunday between 10am – 8pm.

Hair Extensions Worldwide is located at:

Dream-like galactic and aboriginal prints glided down the runway for swimwear label Lisa Blue’s first individual show at Rosemount Australian Fashion Week 2011. Designer Lisa Burke presented her strongest swim collection yet, a stunning array of colour, detail and hardware in a range of hot styles.

Launched just over two years ago, Lisa Blue has been supporting the Australian Whale Conservation Society, donating 25% of profits from the sale of swimwear and accessories to continuing efforts for the mammal’s protection in Australia.

Encapsulating Lisa’s passion for art, the collection features a number of prints from the mystical ET angel to bold colour with the Bollywood story, studs and metallics in Galactic Warrior, Romance Era art in Divinity and the Indigenous-inspired Pretty Shells story. Australian stylist-extraordinaire Mark Vassallo is the show Creative Director, helping Burke to bring her vision to the runway, Lisa Blue also collaborated with Cloud Nine and St. Tropez for the show.

Lisa Burke, Designer, Lisa Blue comments;

“There’s an incredible buzz about taking on an individual show at RAFW this year. Lisa Blue is like my third child, and sending all the combined creativity out there on the runway is the next step on the design journey.

Support here and in the US has been incredible and it’s our aim that with every passing year that Lisa Blue will continue to grow as a brand and with customers who are passionate about our greater cause, whale and dolphin conservation.”

Following a showing at last year’s RAFW in a group swimwear show, Lisa Blue went on to show at the renowned Miami Swim Week, expanding the brands network into the US and UK. Lisa Blue will again showcase at this year’s Miami Swim Week in July, a result of the incredible success and support internationally.

COCO LUXE Crazy and Beautiful for Summer 2010

COCO LUXE Crazy and Beautiful for Summer 2010

“It’s all about a pretty, sexy, cool vibe, with plenty of hardware detailing, sequins, cut outs, structured silhouettes juxtaposed with soft textile accents. ” Are the words of Claudia Venti, creator of the COCO LUXE label.

Looking at the Summer 2010 collection, it is easy to see that these words are true.

COCO LUXE is mostly club-wear but unlike other sparkly labels, this brand of dress would look appropriate on every age group. The maxis, playsuits and cocktail dresses in the collection are predominantly black and white. There are a few stand out splashes of colour which are sequined heavily. The boldy coloured pieces all start with sharply cut bodices which flow down to flatter the feminine physique.

The COCO LUXE mission statement says: “Dedicated to the sassy and distinct fashionista whom appreciates a whole lot of luxe and crazy/beautiful moments.” While the label has been worn by Jessica Hart on the pages of glossy fashion mags, it would be wonderfully appropriate in high-class cocktail bars.

This foxy allure has been inspired by the creators life experiences in show business. With this, has come an enthusiasim for fashion finery. Every piece is embellished by hand in fine workmanship, making each and every piece 1 of a kind.

The full collection can be viewed and purchased at www.cocoluxe.com.au.

World Un-Recession Hits Sydney during Fashion’s Night Out – Sydney 2010

World Un-Recession Hits Sydney during Fashion’s Night Out – Sydney 2010

 

Sydney siders crammed the Sydney CBD on Thursday night shopping during Vogues “Fashion’s Night Out” on 9th September 2010. With DJ’s pumping music and models filling the windows of Sydney Martin Place, you would of thought that the world recession had finally ended in Sydney in September 2010. Major fashion retailers such as Myers, David Jones, Chanel and Giorgio Armani to name a few open their retail stores with hip live DJ’s and jazz flowing through their stores. 

Dispite the rain, the Martin Place area was filled with lovers of local and international fashion looking for a discount during the Vogues Fashion’s night Out. Most stores offered specials and discounts during the night with enticers like fairy floss or VIP red carpet shop fronts to customers. Sydney Fashion’s Night out was one of 15 international fashions night outs created by Vogue magazine.

Ella Bache Splash | Swim & Resort Wear | Rosemount Australia Fashion festival 2010

Ella Bache Splash | Swim & Resort Wear | Rosemount Australia Fashion festival 2010

It is always a treat to see Karen Nielsen’s swimwear designs on parade. And although the same collection was presented earlier in the year, the pieces at Rosemount Sydney Fashion Festival made a splendid opening to the Splash event. Examining the vintage inspired one-pieces or the high-waisted black bikinis, it is clear that every woman, no-matter their size or shape, will be looking good in a design by Karen Nielsen.

In the only parade at Rosemount Sydney Fashion Festival that was totally dedicated to swimwear, the designs of Lisa Maree were sure to make an appearance. Lisa Maree is no stranger to the runways of Australian fashion weeks, but this label is not a fashion veteran yet. The design innovation in the colours and shapes of this swimwear demonstrates that Lisa Maree is a designer on the way up.

Daughter Of The Gods was third onto the runway, but it was the first time most members of the audience had heard of them. The bronzed models were adorned with feathers and fluros. The way the models strutted confidently reflects the mantra of the label. Daughter of The Gods was named after the movie made to tell the story of the first woman who demanded the right to wear comfortable and revealing swimwear.

Hotel Bondi Swim’s collections were oh-so-very Sydney. Within each piece the sights and sounds of Sydney’s world famous beachs and nightspots were echoed loudly.

While Hotel Bondi Swim echoed the sights and sounds of Sydney, Bond-Eye shouted them. The colourful prints on the Bond-Eye fabric sung praises of the hot and floral Australian Summer and the way it is celebrated in Bondi.

Sol Bellow is not a widely known about brand, but, with the way each piece has been designed to flatter every body shape, it will soon be a well known brand to beach-goers. Sol Below spreads design inspiration slink black one-pieces to micro-sized scorching red bikinis. The result of the different colours and shapes made a stimulating catwalk show that got the crowd excited for the Summer ahead.

On a boiling day, there is no better feeling than to drape the body with silk and rest poolside. Colin Heaney’s silk kaftans catored for this desire. There were rain-forrest greens and sunburnt reds flowing down the catwalk. For every different emotion evoked by Summer, Colin Heaney catored with a design.

After seeing the models strut the newest swimwear designs, it became clear that skimpy bikinis are the way to go. For Spring/Summer 2010, modesty comes in the form of a kaftan – to be stripped off in moments of heat. The look to-die-for this season is the same as every summer: a perfectly toned and tanned body with just a whisper of colour to complement the natural physique.

BLK1 judges Australia’s Next Top Model

BLK1 judges Australia’s Next Top Model

I’ve been struggling to write a review about Australia’s Next Top Model over the past weeks. Now the Rift-Raff have gone and the girls have had their much needed hair make overs, exposed in episode three, it’s clear who the front runners are. Over the past few episodes the girls have strutted their stuff at Rosemount Australian Fashion Week and posed to show their natural beauty in front of a camera.

Here is BLK1’s Top Four girls (this will change weekly).

First Place: Kelsey – She is my favourite so far even though she’s 172cm. Alex Perry calls her a midget but don’t forget she’s taller then Kate Moss and Australia’s current ‘it’ model, Bambi. A Byron Bay beauty with an inner cool chic edge.Her photos are flawless and like Harper Bazaar’s Claudia Navone said, “there’s something special about her”. I don’t think she will win but I hope she goes far.

Second Place: Jessica – A leggy 5Ft 11 stunner. I don’t know what it is about this girl but she has it. Keep an eye out for this one.

Third: Kathryn – She’s an international model in the making. Why hasn’t she been working as a model already??? Kathryn on a catwalk??? It’s a no brainer. Can’t wait to watch her grow.

Fourth: Amanda – I like her. Her personality is sweet and she would make a good commercial model. She reminds me of previous Next Top Model contestant, Kristy Coulcher.

Other models (or reality stars in the making) still in the running include Kimberly (who needs to stop trying to copy off girls from previous seasons. You’re no Cassi Van Den Dungen ) and Paris Hilton look-a-like Sophie. Both girls need a day with June Dally-Watkins. Judges favourite Joanna is interesting but just not sold yet.

Now for the worst models of this year’s season. Please note: I will not be kind. The reality of the modelling industry certainly isn’t.

First: Ashlea – Thank god they got rid of her. She had no model material. Much more like Lindsay Lohan stomping down a catwalk.

Second: Claire – enough said.

Third: Ashton – She may have the measurements and the look but she is a magical flop in front of the camera and really didn’t have the heart for it.

I’m predicting ineloquent sounding Chantal to go in next weeks elimination. She is so boring.

The girls have a long way to go to measure to the likes of the very dull but sensational Alice Burdeu, the superb Clare Venema ( who should be modelling around the world but choose the boring school life of Adelaide) and of course could-be Supermodel Cassi Van Den Dungen.

More to come in following weeks…

Catch Australia’s Next Top Model on Fox 8 every Tuesday from 7.30pm.
