A little post and pre show photo log of what my lovely twin sister wore to the L'Oreal Fashion Festival Red Carpet event. Most in her comfort wearing bohemian style clothing, I added a little chic with two pieces from my collection - the silk top is from the Autumn Winter 2013 collection, and the palazzo pant is from the recent Spring Summer 12/13 collection. The rest of the styling is all her own - including the hair jewellery that she bought on one her many trips to India.
This year the L'Oeal Melbourne Fashion Festival Red Carpet event was all about the ethereal bride. Hosted by Harper's Bazaar Brides, the show was opened by my favourite Australian, Collette Dinnigan. Her signature exquisite lace and hand beaded gowns in youthful feminine silhouettes glided down the catwalk, the models concealed by delicate face veils. Akira followed, pleasantly surprising us with loosely fitted shapes that seemed to float around the body.
Gwendolynne, the only designer to specialise soley in the Bridal field, delivered what the bride-to-be's in the audience came to see - the crowd erupted with coo's of admiration, and the gasps and murmurs of delight and the applause did not cease through Rachel Gilbert or Aurelio Costarella, until the final gown by Toni Maticevski, with its veil the length of the runway and needing 3 groomsmen to assist - I, along with with everyone else was left speechless. A triumph of inspiration
A little bit shagadelic, a touch of chic and a whole lotta 80's - Famous for Fashion Chapel st runway was not just eye popping, but purely entertaining
We shot the entire L'Oreal fashion event using the new Samsung Galaxy camera, edit and all - including the upload and post to the blog. If you follow me on instagram, twitter or Facebook, the instant upload from runway to media on the HD super clear screen is very smooth
Thank you to AMPR Melbourne for having us -another fabulous event to mingle with our peers. Saci and I both wore samples from my Autumn Winter 2013 collection - available soon right here
Sex and the City marathon! What a better way to kick of this years L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival than a complimentary night out with the girls - Sex and the City style!
Chadstone The Fashion Capital, is currently holding the incredible New York Style exhibition featuring our favourite gowns the 4 SATC stars wore in the first movie. The exhibition was curated by the great Patricia Field herself. We were treated to cupcakes and champagne, and an exclusive screening of the extended version of Sex and the City, the movie.
My favourite month - March means Autumn, my birthday, and the L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival. I've absolutely loved the recent images coming our of Paris, London, Milan and New York - Fashion Week has once again supplied me with endless inspiration - some of it here to share
Happy Autumn! What a summer it has been - although half of it was spent in the wintery Italy, the last month has been simply beautiful down on the Mornington Peninsula - not to mention the excitement of expecting a baby!
Before I welcome my new collection, I had to show the final look from my Spring Summer collection. You might already recognise - I wore this Banksia ensemble to MSFW Runway 2 show late last year. Instagram and facebook fans helped me choose the pattern clash - both signature Australiana banksia flower prints in simple shell top and pin skirt. You can view the full collection in the tab above
