Like a book club for glossy magazines, Fashion Torque is the latest event that has style enthusiasts flocking to Prahran, eager to discuss the latest trends and developments in the fashion world. Fashion Torque is held weekly at Prahran’s Globe Cafe and is the brain child of industry insiders Phillip Boon and Jenny Bannister.

Amongst the festivities the subject of ‘The Image Makers’ will be the focus of the event. There to discuss the topic will be Phillip and Jenny along with guest speakers Richard Nylon, the famed milliner, and Maybelline director of Australia, Nigel Stanislaus, who will give insight into the business of making and developing an image, whether it be for a fashion campaign, brand or individual.
