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.
Despite all the wild excitement, the trio appeared the perfect combination of vibrant, as well as calm and collected. The boys had done this countless times before, but this didn’t detract from their ability to send tremors and impart some sweet magnetic energy.

If you're looking for something different to do this Winter, you could do far worse than check out an intriguing drama piece known as Blink that will see its WA debut this month. We were privileged enough to have a quick chat with creative director Melissa Cantwell.
Stephen Bailey (of Mt. Mountain)'s debut album Silo is a masterclass on patient mood building. The arrangements are subtle, the production is dense and drenched in reverb, and the performances are of stellar quality.
Ahead of their Splendour sideshows with Two Door Cinema Club, and an impending third studio album, we had a chat to Sean Caskey from Last Dinosaurs about how maturity is affecting their music, making fine wooden furniture and what music they have and do draw inspiration from.
In Part 2 of our Revelation Film Festival roundup, we review documentaries "Working In Protest" and "You've Never Had It: An Evening with Charles Buckowski"
Cult director Sofia Coppola makes her return after the mediocre Bling Ring with a re-imagining of the 1971 classic, The Beguiled.
But is it any good? (Spoiler: it's pretty damn good)
Snap reviews from the Revelation Film Festival
Just as you’d expect, Touché Amoré’s set was an energised and formidable display of expert musicianship, with a palpable bond between the audience and performers.
We caught up with the lovely Meg Mac on a sunny winter's day in Perth to chat about baby albums, naming guitars, where we (legally) watch TV and, burgers.
