Chanel… you’ve got me hooked

I went into the Chanel store and was curious about this crazy invention. What a cute idea, it hooks on the side of the table to hang your handbag, keeping it off the floor.

Goot launch

Designer Josh Goot launches the Goot range at his new store in Glenmore Rd Paddington, Sydney yesterday. A diffusion line of easy care, easy wear, wardrobe essentials inspired from his previous collections of signature pieces that earned him his global recognition.

Fashion consultant and 10 TV’s Gabriele Hackworthy was in town and interviewed Josh for Style Me Romy. Apologies for my bumpy camera work, I will have it sorted by Australian Fashion Week!


Light sensation at the MCA

As a stylist I often seek inspiration from all sort of mediums, recently from a modern installation of contemporary art.

I went to Olafur Eliasson: Take Your Time, exhibition at the MCA Sydney. A Danish-Icelandic artist, he plays with light in a powerful way. I walked into rooms and I turned black and white, I was showered with mist and saw incredible rainbow effects, it was truly an amazing visual experience. I’ve since spoken to people who have been multiple times, it’s a must, on until April 11th 2010.


Robby Ingham in Paris

Things are happening on Oxford St in Paddington, Sydney, with a total revamp to retail store Robby Ingham. New labels, new partner and a new direction makes it one of our new favourite shopping destinations. Marlene Mangioni, buyer and partner (previously at Belinda Boutiques) has just returned from her buying trip for the new season. Adding to their exsisting line up of labels – Chloe, Helmut Lang and Martin Margiela – Robby Ingham will be adding Stella McCartney, Alexander Wang, Halston, Givenchy and Phillip Lim to their racks.

Marlene took us to the Paris fashion showrooms and gave us a sneak peek of what she’s buying for next season.
