Art, Design, Music, Fashion and Style all reflect the very essence of our culture, its attitudes and philosophies, its fashions and passions
The Culture Concept Circle has many FREE posts for you to choose from in many different categories of interest, including the fine and decorative arts, design history, music, literature, and costume as we trace the evolution of our society and its cultural development.
The historical development of fine wine and cuisine and the latest buzz shows and events happening throughout the world of entertainment are a focus, as are conversations about people and events happening daily in contemporary society.
It’s a cultural journey filled with beautiful images and fascinating stories many written by our founder, writer, editor and publisher Carolyn McDowall.
There is a new story published on The Culture Concept Circle Home Page during the week.
Costume is a footnote to culture, and today remains both a changing and eternal form of human expression.
Jo believes fashion can be the elixir we all need to take the boredom out of everyday life. And anyone can be fabulous armed with the right tools (shoes, hot dress and iconic handbag!).
Joe travels overseas annually, and visits many Australian ‘hot’ spots throughout the year, reporting on places to know about, where you would like to eat now whether en casual, or about dining in style.
