The Australian Centre for the Moving Image [ACMI] in Melbourne's Federation Square is running a (ticketed) panel series called Live in the Studio hosted by award-winning Melbourne-based UK animators/designers Ian Gouldstone and David Surman. Tomorrow night’s event at 7pm is dedicated to fashion and the small screen, notably Project Runway Australia and the guest speakers are Project Runway Australia series 2 winner Anthony Capon and yours truly.

The good folks at Australian creative portal Australian INfront have just launched their own talk series at Sydney’s Apple store on George Street called Insight, focussed on people working in the digital domain. Again, the series per se is not dedicated to fashion, but the third installment on April 27th just happens to be.
I was honoured (and somewhat gobsmacked) to be invited to present this third edition of Insight. Australian INfront editor Damien Aistrope was interested in my personal trajectory as a fashion journalist moving from print into digital, so that’s what I’ll be talking about for anyone who happens to be interested.
The event was not deliberately timed to synchronise with Rosemount Australian Fashion Week, which runs from May 2-6 not too far down the road at the Overseas Passenger Terminal, but it’s serendipitous. These talks are free. Click (here) for the full blurb. Thanks to Sonny Vandevelde for the promo portrait.
