A chic runway show last night at Fashion Paramount down on the Terrace lived up to Flannel’s philosophy of ‘Live, Work and Play!’ A family business established for the carefree luxe traveller curated a mix of fresh strong lines and floral designs. The Olivia collection presented last night hosted an array of local modeling talent in a simple runway design with candlelit lanterns and flowers dispersed around the catwalk.
The collection was soft, unpretentious and incidentally stunning with apparent personalized fabrics for that freewheeling bohemian look. Some “crowd” favourites included the silk bloomers, blouses and ruffled dresses. The 70’s lovechild theme continued from dreamy daywear, to long relaxed evening maxis and a small selection of delicate accessories. Personally, the first half of the menswear was a little disappointing featuring checked shirts, blazers and stock standard coloured denim. However the women’s wear stood out with warm raspberry colours and hand embroidered silk fabrics, perfect for the upcoming season.
Overall, the brand seems to be expanding exponentially with plans to move their brand over to the US. The vibe at Fashion Paramount proved to be enthusiastic but collected.
Mother!, with its meandering pace married with pulse-pounding white-knuckled radioactive fear and fury, is unlike any film I've ever seen in the last few years.
At the hands of master craftsman and director Scott McArdle, a transformation occurs: the story of the Soviet space race goes from a strong script, eloquent and thought provoking but still a mere script, into the play embodied by five superb actors and a genius sound guy at the Blue Room Theatre this month. This feat is comparable to the launching of a man into space, just as worthy of applause but far more successful.
