Dr Gene Sherman, founder of Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation, has has a tremendous influence on Sydney’s art world. Her appreciation for Japanese fashion design has also been a boon for the city – first in her donation of a serious Japanese fashion collection to the Powerhouse Museum – and now in the form of Feel & Think, an exhibition of artworks by emerging Japanese designers, on show at the National Art School.

Presenter Jess Scully joined Gene on a walk through the gallery to explore the unique aesthetic and world-view of these kooky creatives.

Sneaky pics from the Alexander McQueen show at the Met


Yes, I know it’s bad and wrong to take photos in an exhibition, but I couldn’t help myself. Such an incredible exhibition, a fitting celebration of a brilliant artist and designer. I couldn’t handle the 2.5 hr line so I became a member of the Met and jumped the queue.

Therese Rawsthorne’s Twin Peaks moment

Stunning show from Therese Rawsthorne at Australian Fashion Week. Not sure what I loved more; the flashes of colour, the beautiful prints, the great hair & make up, the excellent back-gathered pink pants, the orchids as fasteners, or the awesome Twin Peaks theme: complete with log lady and cherry pie.

Romance Was Born at the State Library of NSW


Amazing show at the Mitchell Library kicks off Sydney fashion week for 2011. Complete with orchestra and children’s choir performing the theme from the Neverending Story… magical.
