/ about us
dogstar fashion is created by renowned Brisbane fashion designer Masayo Yasuki and her talented team. At our Woolloongabba studio we strive to design contemporary fashion with attention to cut, comfort and quality.
dogstar has been making its own style of women’s fashion since 1998. We have four retail stores in Brisbane (Ann St, Fortitude Valley, Little Stanley St, South Bank , Edward St, City and our newest at Latrobe Tce, Paddington), as well as stocking retailers around Australia with our innovative label.
dogstar has gained an enviable reputation around the country for its designs and quality of manufacture. Our In Store policy has always been to maximise customer satisfaction with our products and service.
The dogstar radiates the most light of any star and can be seen from anywhere on earth. Worshipped by the ancient Egyptians and Sumerians, the dogstar is now evoking a new form of cult following.
Sirius (a CMa / a Canis Majoris / Alpha Canis Majoris) is the brightest star in the night-time sky, with a visually apparent magnitude of – 1.47. This binary star system consists of a blue-white main sequence dwarf star and a faint white dwarf companion. It is located in the constellation Canis Major.
Sirius can be seen from almost every inhabited region of the Earth’s surface (those living north of 73.284 degrees can’t see it) and, in the Northern Hemisphere, is known as a vertex of the Winter Triangle. The best time of year to view it is around January 1 when it reaches the meridian at midnight.
Under the right conditions, Sirius can be observed in daylight with the naked eye. Ideally the sky must be very clear, with the observer at a high altitude, the star passing overhead, and the sun low down on the horizon.
