The man of honor raises eyebrows at the ladies’ lunch
Ladies dressed in fuchsia and florals appeared in droves at last week’s Mercedes-Benz Sydney 2022 Women’s Luncheon. Centennial Homestead’s annual event is dedicated to inspiring, connecting and empowering women.
This year’s former Iron Woman and WAG Cricket Candice WarnerMedia personality and TV presenter Sally Obermidersocial Jasmine Stefanovic and former CEO of Housewives of Melbourne and co-founder of Liberty Belle Rx Andrea Moss They were on the list.
It was a dress code for ladies for brunch as guests celebrated the accomplishments of the 2022 Young Australian of the Year and founder of Street Side Medics Daniel Nour.
At lunch, CEO of the Australian College of Nursing Kylie Ward She shared her experience with domestic violence, sitting side by side with fellow speakers Dr. Noor And the Erin Mulan.
Nour, the guest of honor and sole deputy, raised eyebrows when he assumed that domestic violence does not discriminate on the basis of gender and reference. Johnny Deppwho is in a defamation trial against an ex-wife Amber Heard.
“First, it’s something I feel very passionate about; domestic violence, sexual violence and harassment are not about sex,” he told Emerald City when called for comment last week.
“In a room full of women, my focus is clearly on domestic violence against women, and that was the reference I was trying to do.”
Depp and Heard accused each other of domestic violence in their $100 million libel trial.
I’m not a judge, I haven’t seen most of the proceedings. Dr. Noor added that the point is, obviously, there are many questions to be asked in the case but there can be domestic violence on both sides.
Imitators and Callouts: Lo Sordo Criticizes Byron Bay’s Naming
For as long as design has been around, creators have had to struggle hard to protect their intellectual property. In the age of social media, fashion designers who are tired of going straight into the public arena and calling out imitators are taking on Instagram.
Last week, Emerald City spied on a fiery commentary from a Sydney designer Michael Le Sordo On a harmless Instagram post by Byron Bay St Agni. He accused the brand of copying a crystal Stardust bra from his 2021 collections.
Copying my designs is not fashion, it is stealing [sic]Lo Sordo wrote, also referring to St Agni, Vogue Australia, and seller Ryan Storer.
The caption remained on the photo for several days but miraculously disappeared hours after calling Lo Sordo for the comment.
“I pride myself on my unique designs and understand that we are in an industry that draws inspiration from each other, past and present,” he told Emerald City. “As they say, imitation is the greatest form of flattery.”
The line between inspiration and tradition seems to be becoming increasingly blurred. Earlier this month, Nagnata co-founder and design force Laura May Gibbs Marx called over a merino wool pullover similar to the unique designs of a Ninjana.
St Agni did not respond to Emerald City’s request for comment.
