About Cocktail Revolution

Our WHY

In the world of fashion magazines and blogs, we’re bringing about a kind of revolution. More of a Cocktail Revolution…

Cocktail Revolution was started in response to the lack of coverage of diverse Australian faces by the mainstream media. We’re talking Aboriginal, African, Asian, Middle Eastern, Southern European and Latino faces. We were tired of seeing a version of Australia that didn’t reflect reality.  When we launched in 2012, the media landscape was a Ramsey  St version of who made up Australian society.  In reality, no-one lives there. We couldn’t relate.

We started Cocktail Revolution by photographing diverse and stylish young people in city streets. Not professional models. Just people going about their business. We started with a weekly street style gallery, showing some of the most individual and original styling you’d NEVER see anywhere else.  We invited people to vote for their favourite looks. That gallery is still one of our main activities (on hold due to Covid19).

Our version of diversity includes all genders, body shapes, and of course ALL ethnicities. We have always embraced diversity. It’s why we do what we do.  We don’t exclude.

How do you present yourself to the world when you close your front door behind you and step out into the world?  We’re interested in your unique take on style. If you’ve got the passion to style it, you’ve got what we want to feature.

In the world of fashion magazines and blogs, it’s a kind of revolution. More of a Cocktail Revolution.

In the process, Cocktail Revolution has come to be recognised as a leading street style, fashion and photography platform for Australian fashion labels. In 2019 Cocktail Revolution was ranked in the top 4 street fashion blogs in the world by a California based marketing research company.

Street Style Fashion

Cocktail Revolution  is all about the street style scene and fashion choices of diverse young Aussies…

When it comes to fashion and style, we go beyond the runways. Will you catch the eye of our roving street fashion photographers if they pass you on the street?  What’s your street style? We’re interested in your unique take on street style and fashion, based on what we see you wearing down the street. If you’ve got the passion to style it, you’ve got what we want to feature.

Almost every week of the year, we post new photos here, of people around the country who have turned our heads on city streets.  You can vote for your favourite style by hitting the  cocktail glass. You can vote for more than one person in a week, but you can only vote once for each person. Fair’s fair. At the end of the month we tally the votes from each of the street style galleries we’ve posted and who ever has topped your vote appears on our Top Voted Favourites page.

There’s no single type of style or “look” that we’re after. Let’s face it, Aussies come in all shapes, sizes, ethnicities, genders and abilities. From quirky to high end style, if you’ve turned our photographer’s heads, you’ve probably got a  very individual look that our followers would love to see! Top-voted winners currently receive a hero-tee of their choice from High Tees Australia. They may even be asked to model for an Australian fashion label, like Anna and Nixon below…
