KFC

KFC have released a fashion line and it’s finger lickin’ good!

KFC have the fast-food industry covered, so now they are branching out into fast-fashion.

The chain has released a range of Colonel-chic apparel – and it’s so finger lickin’ good that over a third of the products have already sold out.

The limited-edition line includes Colonel Sanders shirts, fried-chicken socks, jewelry, pocket squares and lapel pins.

The online shop also stocks a number of home decor items, including a Colonel Sanders pillow and framed artwork.

Sadly, KFC’s apparel range is only available in the US at the moment, but there are plans to expand the apparel line in the future.

The Arts Centre Gold Coast

Biggest names in fashion photography coming to Gold Coast

A major exhibition celebrating some of the most iconic images from the past century of fashion is coming to the Gold Coast later this year.

The Coming into Fashion: A Century of Photography at Condé Nast exhibition will host iconic images from the archives of publishers Vogue, Vanity Fair and Glamour by some of their greatest photographers – Cecil Beaton, Irving Penn, Helmut Newton and Mario Testino.

Curator Nathalie Herschdorfer says Gold Coasters will be able to see the sharp contrast in the first fashion photographs from the early 20th century compared to the modern day.

“Fashion photography is a way to understand how we represent the construction of female beauty and how it has changed over the years,” said Herschdorfer.

“While it’s about selling beauty, selling fashion, it’s also about selling dreams. It can show precisely how the clothes are done, but it can also reflect an idea, an atmosphere, a feeling,” she said.

With unprecedented access to the Condé Nast archives in New York, Paris, London and Milan, Herschdorfer navigated through millions of original prints and pages from the actual magazines to create a collection that showcases a taste of every era.

“I was not looking for specific photographers or icons,” she says. “I wanted to make a selection that represented the history of fashion photography but also included those iconic photos that stood well enough on their own, across any era,” Herschdorfer said.

“Some images made in the 1940s could still work today on a magazine cover. They belong to a specific period but are still visually strong today, without regard to the page it was on, the era it came from or the product it was selling,” she said.

Gallery Director Tracy Cooper-Lavery agrees, “Coming into Fashion allows us access to some of the most significant and stylish images in fashion history.”

“The exhibition brings together 100 years of the world’s greatest fashion photography; ranging from 1920s shots of Broadway actresses to some of the most recognisable photos of the supermodel era. It is such a thrill for Gold Coast City Gallery to be the only venue in Australia presenting the exhibition in its entirety.

The Gallery and The Arts Centre Gold Coast will be presenting an exciting array of public programs to accompany the exhibition including talks by international curators through to hands-on workshops and master classes,” Cooper-Lavery said.

In addition, the exhibition will also include a selection of vintage couture fashion from The Darnell Collection – Australia’s largest private collection of fashion from the late 1700s to the 20th century.

Coming into Fashion: A Century of Photography at Condé Nast will be on display at the Gold Coast City Gallery 25 November, 2017 until 18 February, 2018. Tickets for the exhibition go on sale Monday 31 July 2017, and will be able to be purchased at www.theartscentregc.com.au/gallery

If you’ve ever wanted to create your own perfume scent, then this weekend all your sweet-smelling dreams will come true.

If you’re a fan of The Bachelor, then the class may sound a little familiar…

Guests at the exclusive Powder Room Perfume Master Class will enjoy a light morning tea and glass of champagne before learning how to write a perfume formula.

They’ll then create a custom fragrance using the ‘Olfactorium,’ a mini perfumers organ containing the finest raw materials from Europe.

“Our guests will learn about the enchanting history of perfume, the creation process and how to select their next perfume,” Samantha says.

“They will leave with a new appreciation for perfume and a bespoke fragrance to enjoy.”
