Stylus Muse Is Moving!

When I decided to start blogging earlier this year, I had no idea where it would take me or if it would amount to anything. Since my first post, I have met so many amazing and talented people in the fashion industry including, designers, retailers, PRs, stylists, writers and bloggers, who have taken the time to speak to me, answer my questions and support me.

I've learnt so much about the industry and how tough it is for independent designers and retailers, and how it is so important for us to support them, particularly during these tough economic times.

In order to keep blogging and sharing the experiences and knowledge of the people I have met in the industry, I have decided to combine my blog with Thom from Everyone's Celebrity to create Couturing.com which will be a one stop, online media source for fashion events and news.

Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to support me so far, and a big thanks to the people who have taken the time to read my little blog and comment! I've loved writing and researching it and hope you continue to follow me at Couturing.com!

Fashionistable - Street Style

Style icon Anna Dello Russo
captured by Dvora
As part of the recent Filofax campaign, bloggers were asked to creatively photograph one particular Filofax range from a choice of 4. One of the bloggers asked to enter the challenge was the amazing photographer Dvora who has her own blog Fashionistable which features her amazing street style shots. 

Dvora photographed The Chameleon in four different colours for her feature. Once the feature was shot, Dvora was kind enough to giveaway three of the filofaxes to her readers. I never win anything but thought it couldn't hurt to enter and amazing won the beautiful red Chameleon Filofax!

I just wanted to say a huge thanks to Dvora for running such a great giveaway and share with everyone her wonderful blog

Make sure you visit Fashionistable and check out the fashion she has captured on the streets from around the world!

Spotlight On: Parisian Street Society

Tucked away in a little arcade off Toorak Road in South Yarra, Parisian Street Society is the realisation of a long-term dream by owner Shannyn and her mother Terry. Filled with treasures which have been collected by Shannyn and her mum mostly during yearly trips to France, Parisian Street Society is the perfect place to find a unique statement piece to complement any outfit.

During each trip to France, Shannyn and Terry trawl markets, brocantes and vide-greniers, carefully mapping out and planning their way around Paris and French countryside markets in search of beautiful collectible pieces.

Most of the jewels and accessories in Parisian Street Society are from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. Collectibles from mainstream designers such as Chanel, YSL, Christian Lacroix, Lanvin and Givenchy, are mixed with treasures from rarer designers such as Isabel Canovas, Inna Cytrine, Dominique Aurientis and Edouard Rambaud. There is also a small selection of new French clothing labels from Zadig et Voltaire, The Kooples and Isabel Marant with a handful of wearable vintage garments from Givenchy and Hermes.

So make sure you stop by and check out all the beautiful pieces Parisian Street Society at Shop 7, 101- 105 Toorak Road, South Yarra. You’ll be in good company with Olivia Newton John visiting the store during her most recent trip to Australia, buying a lot of pieces including a Chanel backpack!
