One can't help but be mesmarised by the beauty of this much awaited editorial featuring Miss McNeil. She grew up a few suburbs away from me and I remember seeing her and Miranda Kerr around Brisbane all the time! Miranda always ate fries after school.
I love the feminine, 50's Mad Men feel. But I'm amused at Miss McNeil's tattoos being airbrushed to oblivion.
But Australia's September fashion magazines should be featuring upcoming summer trends shouldn't it, not AW Vuitton?
Which begs the question about Australian fashion and just how uninfluential it is. It's sad when the next big thing is virtuall just copying Rick Owens. Our seasons are 6 months behind that's true, but why can't we be ahead in the fashion stakes by 6 months? We have what we have fashion talent wise, it is what it is... but should the publications be supporting these designers and should they be championing Aussie fashion anyway? Kristie Clements and Tim Blanks made it no secret that they were dissatisfied with what they saw at fashion week, but does that give them the right to pretty much feature NO Australian design talent in the premier fashion issue of Australian Vogue? Is it really that dire? I for one didn't mind the upcoming summer collections, but what would I know? I just buy and wear the stuff...
