wsi watches emporium

Melbourne’s beautiful people descended on Emporium again on Monday night for a lavish fashion party to celebrate the launch of Karl Lagerfeld’s newest collection of timepieces. The watches were almost as glittery as the people who attended with some of Melbourne’s most influential fashionistas making an appearance. I was lucky enough to be invited to the event held at the WSI watches store.


The latest restaurant to open at Southgate launched with a loud, Italian, inebriated bang. Artusi, brought to us by the folks behind Tutto Bene, stored away the starched napkins and silver cutlery a few weeks ago to throw an extravagant opening bash. It was a night of opera singing, evening gowns and an opportunity for Melbourne’s D grade celebs to get out […]
