New Model to Watch Out For!

The stunning Abbie Weir has become the model of the moment! She was in 2013 Australia’s next top model and she was one of my favourites to win! I also saw her on the runway during the Virgin Australia Fashion Festival and she strutted that runway so effortlessly! I even had the pleasure of meeting Shanali Martin (who was top 3) not once, but twice (the second time I met her after a runway show) who was also in 2013 ANTM and one of Abbie’s competitors.

Keep an eye out on this gorgeous model. I can see her heading for the other major fashion capitals and hopefully to grace a Chanel runway show in the next few seasons. Who knows? 🙂

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 🙂

 

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 🙂 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 😛

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

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!

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? 🙂
