Designer Series Runway #1

Day 2 of Melbourne Spring Fashion Week brought the first of the designer series runway shows with it. Featuring some of my favourite Australian designers; Gwendolynne, Aurelio Costarella and Rachel Gilbert were among an impressive line up worthy of the grand opening night. 
The show was opened by stunning "birds" of the Phillip Adam Ballet Lab, while  Sophie wore a divine black velvet ensemble topped with exquisite feather head piece by Richard Nylon.
PETA had been protesting outside before the show began, so it was not a shock when they stormed in and took over the runway. In fact most of the audience sat fixed as if it were part of the show. When it was announced that we would have to evacuate the building, that irked the crowd and the protesters were lead out. Unfortunately only two gowns remained to be seen on the runway, and I thought to myself that the PETA crew could have timed it better, so it was more like a mid movie interval - like they do in Europe so everyone can get their nicotine fix. Bravo to their message - but even more - bravo to the two woman's bravado for getting up in front of a discerning crowd in their polyester blend jersey sacks and 1991 black boots.

Velvet Heaven
My top pick
And the best way to top off a night filled with birds of a feather, sky scraper stilettos and dare I say nudity:
Cocktails from the most enviro friendly bar in town, Council House No#2
Rose & Lime concoction 
Warm Soy Milk with lashings of liqueur - "Christmas in a glass"
Great night out with a best friend

My girls at Splendour in the Grass. The Mini Splendour area was crazy fun. GLOTATTS sponsored the event so that all the little celebrity kidless got their sparkle with tattoos and glitter. Overall what a perfect last day to a hugely successful festival!


The 18th annual Splendour in the Grass Music and Arts Festival kicked off during the coldest week of winter. But that didn't stop the fever of fun and fashion expression for festival revellers. This year was the first year we were not officially working on site for GLOTATTS (we worked tirelessly leading up at pre festival parties and events) We continued sponsorship with little glitter & tattoo stations set up throughout - most notably at Little Splendour - a festival within the festival specifically for our young ones - which my girls enjoyed tremendously! DAY I looks were provided by the wonderful HER PONY THE LABEL team. Day II outfits were from the new Spell & the Gypsy Collective range. By Day III we were footloose and fancy free, opting to highlight our GLOTATTS sparkles with threads of our own choosing. I wore a gorgeous burnt ochre linen dress by Brazilian Flirting
