Recreate puts a highly sustainable spin on couture fashion

The sustainable fashion trend is in full swing and we couldn’t be more thrilled – after all, what’s not to love about a garment that has been lovingly designed to minimise its impact on the environment? Taking this notion even further is the annual Recreate Fashion Show and Twilight Market, a sparkling showcase of high fashion made entirely from second-hand materials. This is up-cycling taken to a whole new level, folks. more

West Village’s stunning Bromley Room is reborn in a permanent location

When West Village announced the closure of its ephemeral arts and functions space The Bromley Room earlier this year, we couldn’t be too sad. First of all, we were warned that this first incarnation of celebrated artist David Bromley’s resident studio space was never meant to be permanent. Secondly, we were promised that David’s work would be scoring its own forever home within the walls of West Village at a later date – and that time has finally come. Allow us to introduce to you Bromley Room #2, West End’s brand-new home of all things arty. more

The round-up: the best BYO spots in Brisbane

Everyone agrees that any BYO restaurant is a great way to enjoy a bit of extra value while dining out, but many don’t know how many spots around town allow customers to bring their own drop. Not only are there plenty of restaurants where BYO is acceptable, but also several bars encourage patrons to BYO food and other eateries welcome patrons to bring their own drop on special nights of the week. We’ve compiled a handy list to help you make a choice of where to take that special bottle of pinot this weekend. more
