To Ellery and Back

By Benjamen Judd A quick survey around the QT office and we are quite shocked at the difference in ratios between Sydney born-and-bred-ers and those who moved to Sydney from ‘Elsewhere’. Every city has its own personal charm but Sydney really does have a magic all of its own that seems to attract people of […]

Ksubi from GQ by Lucas Dawson photography

Ksubi or not to Ksubi

Ksubi or not Ksubi A lot of us remember the Sydney-based brand, Ksubi, back when it was still called Tsubi; when it was sold in only a handful of shops scattered throughout Darlinghurst and Paddington – some of us go as far back as when they were still selling stock out of the trunk of […]

Chronicles of Moody

By Benjamen Judd. Props where they’re due, Gareth Moody has a great name. It’s like an antidote to annoying salespeople, painful zealots or anyone else who attempts to try and win you over with an overly formal introduction. “Hello, Mr. Moody…” If he were a character from Mr. Men, he would be the one dressed […]

For Gorman

By Benjamen Judd. Since it first raised its lovely, well-made head in the charming Melbourne suburb of Fitzroy back in 1999, Gorman has been developing a dedicated cult following all over Australia. Now, thirteen years on, the home-grown brand has turned into a national fashion empire. And the beautiful thing we think is – not […]

Cassette Society from website

Cassette’s are better.

By Benjamen Judd. Sydney based brand The Cassette Society classes itself as a paradox…a mix of strength and frivolity; confident and quirky. Obviously, we here at QT relate to all of these and have thus embraced the brand as one of our own. With a keen sense of what is working right now at street […]

Say This Ten Times Quickly.

Sydneysiders are fond of a bag. Be it a satchel, a backpack, a tote, a carry-all or even just one those supermarket environmentally friendly bags. We just need something to put all our stuff in. What all that stuff is, we have no idea. We here at QT are just as guilty of everyone else […]

Toni and Guy, Broadbeach. Hair saviours.

There are good days, there are bad days, and then there are days when you wake up after having gone to the hairdresser the day before and don’t recongnise yourself in the bathroom mirror. Yesterday was one of those days. After a particularly horrendous trip to another hairdresser, I googled ‘Toni and Guy’ (because when […]

Broken Lock is our new must have.

Broken Lock is an independent locally owned and operated, handmade jewellery brand exploding onto the scene in Melbourne. Based loosely around nautical/pin up artwork and inspired by the traditional tattoo aesthetic, we love the way these pieces hang from our bodies. In a small studio in Melbourne, the works are put together from scratch. Each […]

One tough Unit.

Unit is the brainchild of Paul Everest. Paul was given two talents in life: the love of ‘art’ and the love of ‘riding’. Living on the Gold Coast, Australia, in 2002 he looked for a way where he could combine his skills into one distinct entity … enter ‘Unit’. Today, Unit is supported by some […]

Karla Spetic is hot and bold.

It’s Gold Coast Fashion Week, and the darlings of the local sewing scene are flinging gorgeous young things down the catwalk and debuting their latest collections. We’ve been following Karla Spectic for a little while, and we were anxious (yes we were that emotional about it) to see if her newest collection would live up […]

Janet Hine has the QT look

This charming and fabulously frank costume designer is the zing in the tail of the QT staff costumes, so every time you get a wink from a doe eyed blonde behind a pair of think rimmed spectacles while you are at our place, you can thank Janet for introducing the geek chic look into the hotel. The look that makes you feel like you are a naughty school kid again.
