Home Shopping: Easy-to-use fabric wall stickers at Love Mae

This charming store stocks irresistibly cute reusable decals that are as practical as they are pretty.

Love Mae launched in Australia in 2008, and has since expanded to become a truly global online shop, with new websites in Europe and the USA, and comprehensive international shipping. It's easy to see why this brand has spread all over the globe. Love Mae stocks an irresistibly cute collection of reusable fabric wall decals that are practical as well as pretty. They're a hit everywhere.

Traditional adhesive wall stickers can be tricky to apply. You spend ages trying to find the right spot on the wall, then another half an hour trying to get rid of pesky air bubbles. But these clever fabric decals are fuss-free: simply peel and stick. What's more, they can be moved around as often as you want. They can even be rinsed clean under a running tap, which can be particularly handy in children's rooms.

And there are children's designs galore. I love the sweet Forest Critters collection (available in "earthy" or "pretty" colours) with little woodland creatures such as owls, squirrels and deer, all small enough to stick beside a bookshelf or on the wall as a quirky headboard. There are colourful dinosaur designs, too, and beautiful "Twitters" (that's birds to us).

But this shop isn't just for children. There are some super-stylish designs for the rest of the house, too. Take, for example, the fun pantry labels, colourful stickers for cocoa and sugar jars. They are completely reusable and just the ticket for organising your food stores in a chic and style-savvy way.

I also like the mini tree stickers and the fun new message tiles, fabric wall stickers that look like giant Scrabble letter tiles, so you can spell any word you like on your walls - such as "shopaholic".

Fashion Forward: Thoughtful tailoring at Asudari

The womenswear label Asudari showcased a collection that featured sharp masculine tailoring, but with feminine silhouettes.

Styled with bleached bobs and pale skin, the models wore clean and sporty separates reminiscent of the chic workwear of The Hunger Games.

Designer Lamia Asudari says she was influenced by Delftware ceramics from the 16th century, as well as the imagery of weaponry and artillery. Indeed, pistols, grenades and guns were emblazoned over jackets and dresses.

Fashion Forward: At Starch, watermelon shirts, anyone?

“We need to cultivate our own fashion heroes — our own regional brands,” stressed Fashion Forward’s honcho Bong Guerrero in a press con two weeks ago.

Aptly, the slot for this season’s opening runway show was given to two newbies: Jo Baaklini and Timi Hayek, whose talents were scouted by Starch, a group dedicated to launching emerging Lebanese designers.

Between the two, Mr Baaklini had a stronger showing.

Fashion Forward: Jean Louis Sabaji’s debatable debut

Jean Louis Sabaji’s collection was very good when the tricks were toned down — like the simple white jumpsuit with a sculptural neckpiece, the floral crop top, and the radiant yellow pleated skirt.

But most of the time he went too far. There were bell-bottoms, separates that looked like costumes from The Jetsons, and a yellow dress reminiscent of Bjork’s infamous Oscars swan dress — several disparate elements in one multicoloured, multilayered show.

Fashion Forward: Kage pleases all palates

Did the designers of Kage aim to showcase every type of basic clothing on their latest show?

Because there were skirts, shorts, trousers, off-shoulder tops, short dresses, cocktail dresses, long flowy dresses, spaghetti straps, jackets, hoods — and even pyjamas, which with the incoming summer heat, looked especially appealing.

Fashion Forward: Polish, craft (and fur!) at The Emperor 1688

The best show of Day 1 at Fashion Forward was delivered by the three Golkar brothers behind The Emperor 1688.

The coats and capes were the clear winners: they came in all sorts of interesting colours and sizes — and featured exceptionally tailored proportions. There was a lot of volume, but also stiffness.

And whimsy: two favourites were a green double-breasted suit and a blue overcoat with a red clover pattern and gold buttons.

Fashion Forward: Ezra stuns in snow-covered show

Turns out the Filipino designer Ezra, known for his dreamy couture, still had a few surprises up his sleeve.

Midway through his show, snow started falling from the ceiling.

It created a starkly beautiful atmosphere for his intricately constructed gowns that seemed to be designed for an Ice Queen transported back to the 1950s.

He showed a collection that had a lot of technical firepower behind it: glittering iridescent fabrics paired with head and neckpieces that were moulded and stiffened to stand out in odd angles.
