As a borderline Gen X/Y, the word ‘cassette’ immediately conjures up memories of my first cass-single purchased for $2.95 of my hard-earned pocket money back in the Summer of 1987. Times have changed, but The Cassette Society delivered pure pop onto the catwalk at Australian Fashion Week with their That Heroine’s Electric collection. Hard-edge sportswear and cocktail numbers stomped down the runway to the strains of Bjork’s Army of Me. They also get my award for most innovative catwalk makeup of the week, with models’ eyebrows replaced with thick strips of disco-esque gemstones in vivid hues. Unfortunately, we don’t recommend getting the hot-glue gun out and trying this at home.
