The Garb Wire is a style conservatory… a parlour fantasy filled with observations of music and fashion victories on the streets of the world. It’s things we covet, travel, design & the arts.
It’s about having a sense of humour and being curious about the world. What really makes someone stylish? Money? No.
The philosophy is that what we listen to and watch, experience or dream of, should all contribute to our sense of style. It’s how we present ourselves to the world without the need to speak. Good fashion sense makes us feel strong, and ready for action on the catwalk of life.
About Melissa Ogier– Co-founder, writer & editor
Read the latest on my work here. With a career start at an independent record company, and later working as a stylist and visual merchandising specialist at Australia’s largest department store, The Garb Wire co-founder Melissa Ogier naturally rubs shoulders with the cutting edge of style. Equally impressed by haute couture and emerging designers, she measures success not by the cracking pace of others, but the slow burn of imagination, music, knowledge, and travel.
