Jane Fonda’s Stylist Breaks Down Her Most Trailblazing Fashion Looks

“When I style Jane, her age isn’t even a part of the equation,” says Gill, who has dressed the actress since 2010. “She epitomizes the modern woman and nothing she wears ever really dates for that reason. It’s always more about what will suit her personality.”

Though she’s been walking red carpets for over five decades, Gill says that Fonda is still always willing to try something new in their fittings. “She has such great instincts,” says Gill. “Her choices reflect her boldness. That’s why she likes to embrace so many different colors and styles—it’s a way to show who she is.”

Fonda made major fashion waves this year alone, literally stealing the show at L’Oreal’s fashion presentation in Paris this fall by walking the runway in a sexy, suede tiger-print Balmain gown—and pulling it off better than most 20-somethings we know.

“Oh, Jane loved that dress,” recalls Gill. “We got it sent over in a sample size and it fit her perfectly, like boom. We just zipped her up in the back and she put on some boots to go with it. Honestly, that was it!”

And it’s that effortless spirit that has made the star’s style so iconic. From her smoldering Balmain emerald green jumpsuit at the 2015 Grammys to her Barbie pink Brandon Maxwell column at the 2017 Emmys, Fonda leaves no fashion stone unturned. “She’s a trailblazer in many aspects of her life,” adds Gill. “So it kind of figures that she also pushes boundaries of the red carpet.”

Happy 80th Birthday, Jane! Keep scrolling to see her best looks of all-time, and get inspired by one of the best trailblazers in the business.

Gympie fashion queen lands another big gig Sat, 08 Jul 2017 11:33:53 +0200 AdoringDressesAU AdoringDressesAU FOR 15 years Cindy Vogels put her fashion dreams on hold for her family, with no guarantee she would ever re-enter the industry.

Now, the Gympie fashion designer's hard work has been rewarded in spectacular fashion after winning a prestigious spot in the lead-up to Brisbane Fashion Month.

Ms Vogels was thrilled to have been awarded the spot, which will have her work on display for the month of August at the Brisbane International Airport.

It was an opportunity which would put her label, Racy and Lucky, before hundreds of thousands of people.

Having been a state finalist at the Retailers Association of Queensland fashion awards out of high school before putting her career on hold, Ms Vogels said the selection was amazing given the fact nobody can predict the future.

She had already started designing the piece which would be on display.

CAIRNS design duo Christy Van Der Heyden and Francoise Lane have only been working together for a matter of months.

But the textile artists, who collaborate under the name Fusing Sands, are now on their way to the world stage.

“We only formed our business partnership in March this year, so a lot of things have happened really quickly,” Ms Van Der Heyden said.

“We have been chosen as one of the top three design projects to represent Australia in the Seychelles in October for World Indigenous Fashion Week.”

Ms Lane said the two artists both worked with similar themes before meeting last year.

Fusing Sands will premiere internationally at World Indigenous Fashion Week.

The collection will be available for viewing at WandanFashion Performance next Friday at Tanks Arts Centre.

What is a humanist wedding? Fri, 23 Jun 2017 09:36:07 +0200 AdoringDressesAU AdoringDressesAU A humanist wedding is a non-religious wedding ceremoy that gives you the opportunity to marry where you want, when you want and how you want.

The true intimacy of a wedding shines through with a humanist ceremony, as there is no set script and it is up to the couple to decide what form their nuptials take.

It is up to the wedding party to set the tone that’s right for their special day and choose their own words representative of their relationship.

A humanist ceremony allows people to have an unique and meaningful ceremony that is designed by the couple, and one that is not religious.

It gives people the freedom to get married outdoors, or wherever they would like, in particular, places that are not licensed for civil weddings.

There is flexibility with a humanist ceremony to build the occasion around the couple, and get to know the person conducting the ceremony, like the priest or registrar but called a celebrant.

Some people who have carried out marriage formalities but have not celebrated it with their family and friends may opt for a humanist wedding.

In England, Wales and Northern Ireland humanist weddings are not legally recognised in law so couples have to go to a registers office to take care of that in the days before or after their humanist wedding.

In Scotland humanist ceremonies are recognised in law.

To have a humanist wedding one would need to find a celebrant, and liaise with them about what way you want in your ceremony.

A humanist ceremony can take place anywhere; on a beach, in the woods, in your parent’s house, in a castle, be it a private or a public area, indoors or outdoors.

Humanist weddings can follow a typical format or something different, it is completely the decision of the wedding party.

Designers must focus more on sustainability, eco-fashionistas say Wed, 17 May 2017 09:16:40 +0200 AdoringDressesAU AdoringDressesAU The Australian fashion industry still has "a long way to go" in the production of environmentally friendly textiles according to eco-fashionistas, who want brands to do more to incorporate sustainable practices.

On average, for every metre of fabric used when making shoes or clothing, 20 per cent is discarded as waste.

Traditional dyes used to stain fabrics have damaging effects on the environment, while the widespread use of blended fabrics such as cotton and elastane make clothes impossible to recycle and be repurposed.

Tips to make your wardrobe sustainable

In a world of fast fashion, how does one start the process of slowing down?

Kelly Elkin from not-for-profit organisation Clean Cut Fashion said an upcoming panel discussion about future industry practices was the only event at this week's Australian Fashion Week in Sydney that was focused on sustainable principles.

"Fashion is the second largest polluter in the world after the oil industry, with 70 per cent of fashion's impact on the planet made at the material production and agricultural phase," Ms Willow said.

Ms Elkin said big international brands such as Nike, Adidas and Levi's have so far been the main advocates for sustainable practices, with the latter experimenting with ways to repurpose jeans into new denim and operating under the mantra "water less, waste less".

She said younger and smaller Australian brands were also starting to adopt more sustainable practices and had started seeing the value in promoting that ethos to consumers.

She cited processes such as minimising offcuts, using eco-friendly dyes and inks, and being "less trend driven, more style focused" when considering the longevity of a garment.

Key Questions To Ask Before Picking A Wedding Photographer Wed, 03 Aug 2016 10:20:03 +0200 AdoringDressesAU AdoringDressesAU A good wedding photographer isn’t cheap, so you want to hire one that you know will capture your special day the way you want. Here are some questions to ask a wedding photographer to make sure you two see eye-to-eye.


Besides asking about their schedule and rate, go over these topics with your photographer before signing a contract:

What do you think makes a great photograph? This helps you get an idea of what the photographer thinks makes an impactful image and if they will focus on what you want in their photos. Checking out some of their previous work and references will help solidify this too, so make sure you ask for them.

How do you use photography to tell a story? The photographer has an important role in telling the story of your wedding day, from the preparation to the reception. You definitely want to hear how they plan to compose that story before committing to anything.

Do you have an overtime policy or other special conditions? The unexpected could come up — especially delays, or a reception that runs a little long. Chatting about this now prevents surprises later.

These are just a few questions to include in the conversation you have when talking to potential photographers. They shouldn’t be the only ones, and The Financial Diet has a few more at the link below.
