Happy Autumn. Let's watch this video by Aldo Shoes and pretend it's still officially Summer. Feel free to also pretend you're the icy-pole (if so sexually inclined). 

Just in case you stumbled across this column and know nothing about fashuuun: L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival is on this week. Go buy something sparkly.

Penthouse Mouse will inevitably be the LMFF highlight again in 2012. Here's a little sneak peek of what's the hap. Studded vests! Pink hair! People dancing in a Sex and the City-themed corporate rave office! 

And then there's No Home, a fashion and film project playing this week at ACMI, that has a happy hour deal for tickets on today (see the gallery). Surely you want to support all those starving, creative, not-really-but-kinda-homeless fashion film creatives out there? Also, free beer. 

Dita Von Teese is in town today for LMFF as part of her Von Follies lingerie collection for Target. Get thyself down to the Chapel St store in Melbourne at lunchtime for some "fan signing". (Let's assume this means she'll sign your boobs.)

Anyways, LMFF is great and all, but what about the Indonesian Fashion Festival?! They're currently sending models down the runway in Sailor Moon-inspired hairdos and make-up. Clearly this is awesome. 

All models want to be slashies this week. Abbey Lee Kershaw's suspicious absence from this season's international runways is sparking a bunch of rumours. It appears she's either suddenly developed a taste for chocolate cake, or she is in talks to shoot a film with Steven Spielberg.

Another Aussie export, Andrej Pejic, is said to be working with French director Florence Dewavrin, who is adapting Honoréde Balzac's novel Séraphita.

And then
Agyness Deyn is dabbling in the theatre. She's stopped lying about her age (29) and is set to debut at a comedy play called The Leisure Society.

Speaking of slashies: Milla Jovovich was clearly the best dressed at the Oscars last week. She gets five gold stars and a Multipass for her efforts. 

Are you handy with scissors, can make random objects into "fashion", and have the ability to make your fellow human beings cry via snide comments? Project Runway Australia is currently calling out for applicants for its next TV series.

Mary Katranzou's much-hyped collection for Topshop has launched in-store at the Melbourne flagship, with that bubble dress selling out in two minutes. Two minutes, people! Bitches then went bananas with snatching, cat-calling, and hysterical tears. Nobody messes with curtain-material clothing.

Whimsical fashion house Chloe has a new perfume campaign that's appropriately whimsical. It also features a kinda perplexing cover of Hot Chip

There's another perfume campaign with Chanel. This one was directed by Academy Award winner Kathryn Bigelow and has nothing to do with fragrance. Instead, there's water references and that stereotypical French voice at the end that kinda makes it sounds like a sexy lobby group commercial.

Hermes has lost its long-running trademark lawsuit against a Chinese menswear maker, Dafeng Garment Factory, which it said ripped off its legacy by using the line "officials who love horses". The case started in 1997 and has ended with a local court ruling that the French label doesn't actually own the rights to horses, equestrian sports, or My Little Pony.

Also grumpy: Ksubi. The local label has had $1 million worth of jeans stolen from its Sydney warehouse [insert requisite joke about "fashion victims" here]. Police are now on the hunt for the drivers of a burnt-out white Mazda and/or anybody attempting to sell current season denim for hells cheap.

And then there's Michael Hutchence. (Never forget.) Here's the sadly departed frontman of INXS remixed for a clothing label that's still very much alive, A.Y. Not Dead.
