Who stole the show at Australian Fashion Week?

Australian Fashion Week is always a hotbed of creative designer talent and this year has been no different. From firm fashion week regulars to fresh new talent, this year’s catwalks have got us far too excited about next Spring already! Check out the designers who we think stole the show this year…

Alex Perry

AA - Perry

Alex may be our favourite Australia’s Next Top Model judge but his talents certainly don’t end there. His trademark red carpet worthy dresses rocked the runway and even won a starring appearance from Victoria Secret’s angel Alessandra Ambrosio. Stunning!

By Johnny

By J j2

Johnny Schembri only founded his contemporary womenswear label ‘By Johnny’ in 2009 but he’s fast becoming one of Australia’s most talked about new talents. And it’s not hard to see why! Johnny’s fresh designs effortlessly brought Spring to the Melbourne catwalk. We think this guy is definitely one to watch!

NLP

nlp

nlp2

Swimwear season might seem a long way off but we’re totally in love with the neon brights from NLP’s catwalk show. The collection takes inspiration from this season’s sport luxe look to mix up boyish shapes with feminine colours and flattering cut-outs. Any excuse to book a holiday right?!

Australian Fashion Week continues until Thursday. Check live updates HERE

6 things online dating has taught us

1. Chat-up lines are never a good idea

If online dating were a cheese board, Tinder would be stinking bishop.

cheese tinder 1

2. People are not always what they say they are

So, you’re dating a millionaire Brazillian supermodel with 5 Harvard degrees but no access to a webcam?

catfish 2

3. Opposites attract

Findyourfacemate.com uses complex facial recognition software to match you up with someone who looks just like you. Dating someone outside your comfort zone seems a little more appealing now right?

4. Beyonce knows best

To the left, to the left…and another left! Being a little picky with your right swipes is often for the best when it comes to online dating. You wouldn’t want to get these guy’s hopes up now would you?

5. There’s someone out there for everyone

Salad eaters, sea captains and mullet lovers included

6. Disney was right

Happily ever afters do happen, even in the world of online dating. Since it’s creation Tinder has been responsible for half a billion matches and even a few marriages. Good luck explaining that to your future kids guys!

Top places to visit in your 20′s

Whether it’s a semester abroad, the infamous ‘gap yah’ or even the party holiday of a lifetime with your mates, travelling is an essential part of the uni experience. Before you book your next adventure, check out our guide to the top travel destinations you need to visit in your 20′s. Warning: this post might be bad for your bank account!

Full Moon party, Koh Phangan, Thailand
Ok, so this one is far from original. In fact, you’ve probably been so bombarded by pictures of bikini selfies on beautiful beaches that at times you’ve actually wondered whether your Facebook news feed is secretly sponsored by Thailand’s tourist board. But, as cliche as it may be, Full Moon Party really is one for the bucket list. Cheap drinks, up to 30,000 party people, white sands and the craziest night of your life – what’s not to love?

FullMoon2

 

Santorini, Greece.
Santorini is what social media buffs use as shorthand for guaranteed Instagram likes. Simply beautiful.

The American South
America is on everyone’s travel wishlist. But while Cali, New York and Florida are the holiday destinations for most, take advantage of your youth (read: ability to sleep in cars and eat solely from roadside diners) and take a road trip across the American South. From the nightlife of Atlanta to the beautiful beaches of the Gulf Coast or the voodoo palaces of New Orleans, this really is the best way to experience the real US of A.

Lapland
Because…

Glastonbury/Coachella/Roskilde Festival
No student experience is complete without a festival. This one is pretty reliant on your music tastes (we don’t recommend Creamfields if you’re a Download regular) but why not try out one of the biggies to really capture festival fever? Coachella (California, USA), Roskilde (Denmark) and our own beloved Glasto all have killer line-ups year after year – well worth checking out!

festival

 

Cancun, Mexico
Spring break, tacos and tequila anyone?

cancun

 

Northern Italy
For so many reasons. Ok, we admit, the food is probably reason numero uno but the annual Battle of the Oranges in the Northern Italian city of Ivera looks like the best way to burn off the excess calories!

Boryeong Mud festival, South Korea
Food fights not your thing? How about some mud wrestling?

Sydney, Australia
Did you know that to be eligible for a working holiday visa in Australia, you have to be under the age of 31? While that may be a few years away yet, it’s the perfect excuse to make the land down under your next travel destination.

Praia Do Pinho nudist beach, Brazil
We dare you.

Munich, Germany
Munich is the capital of culture at any time of the year but to really make the most of your trip, head over in October for the world’s largest fair, Oktoberfest, or in December for the world renowned Christmas markets. The best mulled wine and ginger bread you will ever experience, guaranteed!

…and, of course, no 20 something’s travel wishlist would be complete without…

 

Las Vegas
Obviously.
