Candour Store

Carla Cosgrove has seen many different faces of the beauty industry. A former makeup artist, her knowledge of ingredients, products and techniques is matched only by her unique insights on body image, self esteem and inner beauty. Candour Store is the sum of Carla’s experience, offering a beautifully curated range of Australian and international beauty brands, all of which have been tested to fit with her own personal philosophy for non-toxic, ethical and eco-friendly products. Carla is also a prolific blogger, using Candour as a platform to share candid product reviews and beauty tips, debunk green myths and offer positive affirmations to her customers. “Using beauty products isn’t about ‘fixing’ anyone,” Carla says, “it’s about celebrating real, individual beauty, having fun getting dolled-up and showing ourselves some love with daily rituals of self-care.” We couldn’t agree more! Read on to find out about Carla’s vision and her very handy tips for a Spring Beauty Detox.

Laneway Learning

There’s no shame in being a jack of all trades but a master of just some – especially when it comes to the practical life skills we once relied on for survival and creativity. If ‘learn a new skill’ is a promise that’s still floating around your New Years’ resolutions list, check out the curriculum offered by Laneway Learning, an informal urban education program designed to introduce people from all walks to new or forgotten skills. With a year-round program of evening classes already established in most Australian capital cities (and in Singapore), Laneway Learning have tapped the knowledge of local professionals to develop a fantastically varied program, delivered by specialised guest teachers from your community. Upcycling old furniture and scrap materials to make practical household items is just one of the lessons to be learned – you can also take a class in cooking with superfoods from a qualified naturopath, learn the basics of urban beekeeping, or get introduced to meditation. From working with polymer clay and flower arranging to practicing the art of self compassion, making mozzarella to propagating native plants, there is a hands-on, DIY-focused class to suit everyone. Laneway Learning happens on weeknights in cafes and bars around the country, and with low admission prices and small class sizes, it’s a perfect opportunity to get back to school.

As part of London Fashion Week‘s #CharityFashionLive event this year, Emma Slade Edmonson and her fellow style mavens at Back of the Wardrobe collaborated with the British Red Cross to recreate designer ensembles from the LWF SS15 catwalk using only charity shop finds. The trendy team recreated looks from labels such as Sibling, Holly Fulton and Jasper Conran, proving that great fashion doesn’t have to cost a fortune.

Images from the day will be on the Back of the Wardrobe site soon, but in the meantime, you can satisfy your sartorial curiosity (and pick up some stupendous style inspiration!) and watch the full film of the event here!

Jess Feury

Too much texture is never enough – just ask fibre artist Jess Feury. From her studio in Northern California, Jess uses natural dyes and a loom to transform natural fibres and vintage threads into an incredibly tactile range of garments, home textiles and accessories. Her small but thoughtful wardrobe range includes everything from delicate smocks made with antique lace to practical raw silk throw-overs, while her most popular creations are a collection of signature crop tops, each stitched from handwoven natural fibres and designed to be layered. We also love her colourful kimono jackets, pieced together from scraps of hand-painted and hand-dyed patchwork, rag rugs woven from heirloom textiles, hand-loomed wallhangings and coiled-yarn necklaces. For fabrics your fingertips will never tire of touching, Jess’ one-of-a-kind pieces are available to purchase through her online store.

Prefer your spring fashion fresh and fast? The Fleet Store‘s 2014 pop-up boutique in Brisbane’s CBD is the best place to source garments and accessories from local makers, designers-in-training and graduate students this September. The store is organised annually by QUT fashion/business students to help give industry up-and-comers the chance to get their foot in the door and their creations on the racks of a real-life retail space. As per usual, there will be dozens of unique brands on show this year, including a debut collection from our friends at the stitchery collective, handmade jewellery by Bianca Mavrick (pictured above), and creations by local silversmith Holly Ryan (as seen in our Issue 22 Softly Does It photo shoot). Among the small-scale garment makers you’ll find upcycled vintage from TLC and Moreno Marcos and sustainability minded labels Grammar and Endless Second. Outside the closet, there are items from a range of local artists and ceramicists available, plus Sayuri Nail Lacquer, 3-free and handmade in Brisbane. There are also debut collections from 13 QUT final year design students available to purchase – it doesn’t get much fresher than that! This year’s store is open between September 15 and 26 inside Old Government House on QUT’s George Street campus. Visit The Fleet Store’s new website for the full list of designers and don’t forget to pop in when they pop up!

Ever wanted to take a little piece of the beach home with you after a holiday? Well, now you can, thanks to the creative minds and crafty hands at Beachbox Garbage, who make striking and colourful works of art by stuffing beach garbage into trophy cases. Each case – which measures 120mm by 120mm by 120mm – showcases an eclectic collection of rubbish, from food wrappers and bottle caps to fishing rope and discarded toys. The results are not only bright and fun, but environmentally significant: every Beachbox purchased helps removed junk from our coastline, and proceeds go towards a global network of organisations dedicated to preserving the planet. Check out the full range here and start clearing a space on your mantlepiece! (And don’t forget to look up Beachbox Garbage on Facebook).

London Fashion Week kicks off in a matter of days, and it’s not all about catwalk-fresh couture: this Saturday 13 September, the British Red Cross is collaborating with the thrifty stylists at Back of the Wardrobe to recreate LWF looks at a fraction of the price. The event will take place in a British Red Cross charity shop, where Back of the Wardrobe stylist Emma Slade Edmondson will recreate LWF designer outfits just moments after they appear on the SS15 LWF live stream; her efforts will be captured by fashion photographer Claire Pepper. Emma’s resources? You guessed it – the contents of the British Red Cross shop. Using a combination of creativity and charity shop finds, Emma will demonstrate that you don’t need a bottomless budget to dress well and that sustainable second-hand shopping can be just as on-trend as the latest designer pieces.

The project also sends an important environmental message. As Emma points out, ‘If we all extended the active use of our clothes for just three months, we could each cut down on our carbon and water and waste footprint by up to 10%’. Using clothes that have already been produced rather than constantly buying new garments means we can reduce the amount of clothing landfill and prevent the exploitation of workers in the name of fast fashion.

Catch the action this weekend and pick up some stylish tips and inspiration by visiting Back of the Wardrobe online and following @backofwardrobe and @BritishRedCross on Instagram and Twitter. And now might be the perfect time to go rifling through the back of your own wardrobe to find some unwanted clothing to donate to your local charity shop!

Candles

It’s easy to wax lyrical about the flurry of fabulous frocks, stylish soirees and exciting events that make up fashion week in Melbourne, but when the last sequin has been swept from the runway, all an exhausted fashionista wants to do is flop onto the sofa and relax. But even if you’re in the daggiest pjs and slippers never to grace the catwalk, you can add an element of glamour to couch-time thanks to these divinely scented candles. A collaboration between Melbourne-based potter, Tufts, with illustrations by Estelle Michaelides, designer of Micky In The Van, each porcelain vessel is handmade and showcases Estelle’s delightful fashion illustrations – the perfect container for jewellery once the candle has burnt down. The 100% soy wax with fragrant oils is poured in by Estelle’s mum, so it’s truly a team effort from this talented trio. If you want to invest in some scented style, head over here – and make it quick, because until September 5, Estelle is donating 20% from all sales to CARE Australia’s South Sudan Emergency Appeal.
