Runway 6 at VAMFF

Yes most runway shows I have been to I have loved but last nights runway show was the most amazing out of them all as it consisted of pretty much most of my favourite fashion designers all in one hit and the collections were impeccable… however the stand out collections for me were Ellery, Sass & Bide and Yeojin Bae.

These are the styles that I fell in love with and claimed its spot for my favourite collections for the night:

Seriously it was the best runway show. Look at how amazing the above styles are? I would wear them all in a heart beat πŸ™‚

 

The experience I had over those couple of days was phenomenal and I am so incredibly lucky that I get to attend these! Going to be so sad when this week is over, had such a fantastic time πŸ™‚ Below are a couple of quick snaps from the night and look how close I was!

Runway 1 of VAMFF

What a wonderful experience at Runway 1 yesterday! As soon as I turned up to the venue a few photographers snapped up some photos of me and I’ve literally never had that experience before so I was really stoked that they liked my outfit enough to take a photo πŸ˜›

Below are the details of what I wore to the runway show last night:

1969154_680337248690163_1708619531_n

Wearing Finders Keepers the Label Dress paired with Calypso Lipstick from Napoleon Perdis. It was all about colour for me that evening and I’m glad it made me stand out of the crowd!

1969184_680264755364079_494130253_n

Midi rings and cuff from TopShop Australia. Midi rings have become my new favorite accessory!

 

Although my styling theme for my outfit was ‘all about colour’, runway 1 designers presented a monochrome palette mixing with comfortable sport luxe (a trend I’m still lusting over!).

The designers for runway 1 included:

  • Bassike
  • Josh Goot
  • Christopher Esber
  • Maticevski
  • Scanlan Theodore
  • Willow
  • Strateas.Carlucci

The designers collections that stood out for me the most was Maticevski and Willow. There was also a dress that I adored by Christopher Esber as seen right below.

Below is a photo I took (sorry for the poor quality! My phone couldn’t handle it!) and on the night I captioned how “blessed [I am] for these experiences” and I truly am. The atmosphere at these runway shows is phenomenal! Surrounded by fashionable people, watching fashion, enjoying a glass of wine and appreciating the fantastic music as the models strut their stuff down the runway. What more could I want in such an amazing event? πŸ™‚

Chanel A/W 14′ – Taking High Fashion to the Grocery Store!

Again, Karl Largerfeld has put on a spectacular runway show that will be remembered for many seasons to come and not in my wildest dreams would I have imagined a high fashion runway collection to be presented in a replica supermarket! Classic tweed jackets, suits and detailing remained its elegant and classic way while emphasizing that comfort (as seen in the footwear) can go a long way in high fashion and for when its time to go grocery shopping πŸ˜› As some of you know I work in a supermarket myself however working in the CHANEL Shopping Centre would be totally ideal for me! Imagine the things you could buy! πŸ˜€

Sass & Bide’s Novateur Collection

Sass & Bide’s collections always has a lasting impression on me as I love their use of draping, embellishing and delicacy in their fabric work while making sure the wearer looks confident and stylish. NOVATEUR was the designers Autumn/Winter collection that was presented during New York Fashion week and my favourite looks from the runway show are presented below. If I had the money, my entire wardrobe would consist of Sass & Bide! I absolutely adore this Aussie designer brand πŸ™‚ Definitely one my favourites alongside Yeojin Bae and Ellery!

Kenyan Craftspeople Model for Karen Walker’s Sunglasses Campaign

Karen Walker joined with the United Nations’ ITC Ethical Fashion initiative in order to create a range of pouches that accompany her sunglasses for Spring 2014. This campaign was taken to the next level as Karen Walker decided to include the Kenyan craftspeople (who made the pouches) as models to show off her sunglass range aiming to celebrate the work and creativity of Kenyan artists.

I think this is such a beautiful and different way to go about a fashion campaign. It’s a campaign that has a lot of life and meaning and I love it that Karen Walker took it that step further πŸ™‚

Chanel Haute Couture S/S ’14 – Couture with a Twist.

Ok so the reason for my words, ‘Couture with a twist’ is to highlight my surprise to the combination of runners with gorgeous classic garments. I mean…who would have thought that a pair of runners could be paired so elegantly in a Chanel COUTUREΒ  collection? The master and genius of fashion, Karl Lagerfeld inspires me so much and this collection is yet another one of his masterpieces…he is never afraid to take it to the next level and push boundaries with fashion and this couture collection is a brilliant example of how amazing he really is.

This collection (as always) remains classic and timeless using a delicate colour palette consisting of pastel pink, green and blue and of course black and white which is a signature colour combination in the french fashion house.

Courtsey of Fashionising.com for these photos, I am sharing with you all my favourite looks that stood out for me the most and if there were particular looks that you also liked let me know! I love involving myself with other fashion lovers and a discussion about our favourite collection is a great way to spend my afternoon πŸ˜›

Marc Jacobs’ Final Campaign for Louis Vuitton

There was a line up of an all-star cast to model for Marc Jacobs’ final campaign with the well-known french fashion house, Louis Vuitton. What a brilliant way to exit as a designer for LV by presenting this flawless campaign!

T by Alexander Wang Pre Fall ’14 Look Book

Another stunning collection by Mr Wang! This is my kind of style in terms of the simplicity in colours and shape. This collection has a bit of a rough edge, sport luxe feel to it but also staying simple and minimal. I also love the idea of dual coloured bomber jackets. The concept of duality in fashion is fascinating to me!
