Tiger or Jetstar: Who Is Australia's Best Low-Cost Airline?

  Tiger or Jetstar: Who Is Australia's Best Low-Cost Airline? In 2015, Lifehacker tried to answer the question "Does Tiger Airways still suck?" and the results were almost positive. In 2017, I flew on both budget airlines at least once a month, alternating between the two based on price and convenience -- and I learnt a lot about flying low-cost. For the uninitiated, Australia's two major premium airlines - Qantas and Virgin - operate our two low-cost options. Qantas owns Jetstar and Virgin bought Tigerair back in 2015 for $1. That doesn't mean that our low-cost airlines share all that much in common with their owners though. Genuinely, budget airlines are all about Get-What-You-Pay-For.

Outside, Sydney was turning on a monsoon but inside the Royal Hall of Industries at Moore Park on Sunday, Camilla and Marc made their own futuristic desert.

But first, we need to talk about the giant bags.

Forget Balenciaga's take on the blue IKEA bag, Camilla and Marc sent totes down the runway that were so big, it would take a year on Mars (that’s 1.88 Earth years, so you know) to find a lipstick in the bottom of those things.

And the models who didn’t have super-sized sacks had tiny little wristlet purses – so you can carry your keys and still have both hands free for a selfie.

Robyn Lawley's despair over Fashion Week

  Robyn Lawley's despair over Fashion Week Most brands at MBFWA will feature one body type in their shows: slim. Lawley puts it down to "laziness".And today the Sports Illustrated regular, originally from Girraween in west Sydney, is rejoicing thanks to Bras n Things' latest campaign honouring body confidence that she stars in alongside Samantha Harris, Bianca Cheah and Elle Ferguson.

Camilla and Marc sent totes down the Fashion Week runway that were so big, it would take forever to find anything.

And selfie they did. After the show, the set, which included 60 tonnes of sand and rock sculptures, turned into a giant photo set cum children’s playground, with plenty of tots in tow with their fashionable parents for the traditional Mother’s Day opening of Australia’s biggest industry fashion event.

Celebrating their 15th year, Camilla and Marc presented a collection that played to their strengths – checked suiting, exquisite fabrications and day-to-night dressing – while injecting the collection with some textural touches, including fringing, ribbons and jacquard.

As far as trends go, the collection all but confirms that green will continue to dominate the colour palette into summer, from moss green, military-inspired soft suiting, to a show-stopping dress with bell sleeves in a shimmering emerald.

Why You Should Never Put Your Passport in Your Carry-on

  Why You Should Never Put Your Passport in Your Carry-on Why You Should Never Put Your Passport in Your Carry-onThere's one major reason this method is a problem: On completely booked flights, airlines may try to expedite the boarding process by asking passengers to check their bags gateside. Some with larger suitcases may be forced to leave their bags at the gate to make space in the overhead compartments. Earlier this year in Europe, budget airline Ryanair introduced a new rule requiring those with basic fares to check their luggage at the gate.

This week we 're going to be talking about clothing, and about the kinds of clothing that people wear. The word for that is fashion , and I have to say that I'm not an expert in it. Some of my clothes are ten years old!

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia is in full swing - and the trend for supersized accessories is a trend that's catching on (pictured: giant handbags at Camilla and Marc). On Sunday, models paraded the catwalk in a series of pretty outfits - but what got people talking was the giant bags

Clever layering of shirts under dresses also stamped this collection firmly with a “transeasonal” seal, which is important as Camilla and Marc continue their aggressive expansion into the US market and brands seek to sell these pre-summer pieces as things to last. Fast fashion this is not.

In the show notes, the brand’s founders, brother and sister Camilla Freeman-Topper and Marc Freeman, said the collection explored themes of “light, reflection, boundlessness, strength and boldness”.

The opening show of the week included two international star exports from our region: New Zealand-born model Georgia Fowler, who has walked for Victoria’s Secret, and Charlee Fraser, who recently graced the cover of Vogue Australia’s diversity issue.

More than 600 people attended the show, including international buyers and media, and celebrities including actress Elsa Pataky, wife of Chris Hemsworth.

The shows continue on Monday morning with a group presentation of swimwear.

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia runs until Thursday.

Why You Should Never, Ever Check Your Luggage on a Plane .
If you check luggage on your flight, you're inviting disaster along for your trip. It's not always that dramatic — sometimes it's just a mere inconvenience — but other times you're asking for more trouble than those extra pairs of shoes that made you upgrade to a larger bag are worth. As a frequent traveller, I avoid checking luggage at all costs — because I've learned the hard way. Unless I'm going on a trip spanning several weeks in the dead of Winter and need bulky sweaters and jackets to stay warm, I'm flying stress-free with just my trusted carry-on. I've had my luggage damaged.
