Day 1 started with a bang thanks to Mr Alex Perry - embellished mini dress & long chic gowns - featuring Victoria Secret angel Alessandra Ambrosio. I had lunch with the gorgeous Connie from K is for Kani and then visited the Rekorderlig Gallery Bar to try their 'Passion for Fashion' cocktail. Cute mermaid prints at Gail Sorronda and then Bec & Bridge to finish the night on a high!
Day 2 included amazing drapery in baby blues, pinks and yellows at Michael Lo Sordo, Cowboy style at Cameo, pythons took the stage at the Paddington Reservoir Gardens for We Are Handsome and a mini jungle spat out models at Talulah.
Day 3 started with boyfriend dressing at Dion Lee II. I met the lovely Kate Boissett (amazing chick!) and the stunning twins from When Words Fail. The Raffles showcase displayed delicate designs as always - lovely. We finished the night with a break from MBFWA with an advance screening of The Grand Budapest Hotel (by Wes Anderson) thanks to the incredible Gelato Messina who provided their re-creation of the delicious dessert from the film (which is available at their Darlinghurst store for those Wes Anderson fans out there, like me). So exciting!
Day 4 our spirits were lifted thanks to the Brilliant Alice McCall and her white wonderland - complete with snow - not to mention the lovely designs. It was my favourite show of the week! Next was daring designs at The Innovators - never disappoints! Zhivago displayed glittering grunge - another great show. Cocktails in the Star Lounge makes for a great mini escape. Details in lace, sheer and leather at Ae'lkemi and a safari adventure at Aje ended the week.
Lastly, I have to say thank you to everyone who made this week special for me - new & old friends, the designers, plus all the PR peeps and those working hard behind the scenes. To my lovely readers, I hope you all like my coverage from the week! Till next year MBFWA.
