1-Minute Fashion Fix | CLEO June 1989

1-Minute Fashion Fix | CLEO June 1989

Aussie supermodel Anneliese Seubert looks amazing in everything she does, but I especially love this soft editorial from CLEO Magazine in the late '80s. There's some sort of picnic/fishing expedition story going on here, and the shot of Anneliese wearing pink gloves while carrying a fishing net is pretty much my everything here...

1-Minute Fashion Fix | Cosmopolitan (Australia) March 1993

1-Minute Fashion Fix | Cosmopolitan (Australia) March 1993

We've never featured runway editorials in a Fashion Fix post... until now. So we're righting our wrongs today with this feature from 1993. Even though most of what made it down the catwalk would never have made it onto the bods of everyday folk, street-fashion did take notice of the London, Paris, Milan & New York collections, and simplified designs eventually ended up in our suburban shopping center retail stores.

'90s Fashion Fix | Bad-ass Chic

'90s Fashion Fix | Bad-ass Chic

I don't know if this fashion look from 1989-ish to 1991-ish has a dedicated name at all, but I’ve always just called it ‘Bad-ass Chic’. It signaled a definitive change in fashion and music that happened at the turn of the decade.

'80s Fashion Fix | Ladies in Red

'80s Fashion Fix | Ladies in Red

This article was supposed to be just a short piece with a few Dolly Magazine editorials, and a couple of standout red-wearers. But I fell down a red fashion rabbit hole & I'm seriously stoked with what I found! If there's anything to take away from this post it's that the '80s loved red, and red loved the '80s!

'80s Fashion Fix | White (Part 1)

I don't think there's a fashion magazine in the world that doesn't feature at least one white-themed fashion editorial each year. I don't have stats to back up that claim, but what I do have... is an awesome 4-part series of all white fashion editorials...

Time Capsule | May 1990

Time Capsule | May 1990

There's something a little bit sad about the first half of 1990. We had to say goodbye to our dear dear friend, the '80s. The '80s had been like a cool aunty to us for exactly a decade. The '80s held our hands as we crossed the 4-lane highway of life to get to the sand pit on the other side. The '80s had held us close to her bosom... ok ok, I'll stop.

The point is... hah, actually there really is no point - which almost feels like the actual point of the '90s - as it actually was. It's all getting rather meta in here, so let's dive right in & crack that May 1990 Time Capsule open.
