Jenny is a legendary Australian fashion designer who has been in the fashion industry for over 35 years, her work has been collected by galleries and museums all over including the NGV in Melbourne, the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra and the Powerhouse in Sydney as well as a few pieces in the Smithsonian in the US not to mention appeared on an Australian stamp! Jenny is now retired from running her fashion design business and is now my co host on Fashion Torque.
Both Jenny and I love to dress up, (Very recently Suzanne Carbone from The Age newspaper called Jenny 'Human dress up box Jenny Bannister') and I suppose we are both not afraid of either colour or people staring!
The below photos are us at our most outrageous and colourful and amuse more than me no end!
A side note: Jenny walked the entire length of Chapel Street shopping strip in Melbourne like this and in her words 'Not a person on the street said a thing!'

Fashion Torque is something that continues to grow and grow and I love that not only Jenny and I have the opportunity to play dress ups and let our imagination go wild but hopefully our audience feel they can to.
Fashion Torque is a live fashion forum that is more chat show than seminar with different fashion guest panelists and is held the last Wednesday of every month at 7pm in the Hasti Bala Room at The Carlton Hotel 193 Bourke Street Melbourne.
A huge thank you to our major sponsor The Carlton Hotel and to other great sponsors Ciccone Cosmetics and Acqua Panna Fine Dining Waters.
