Guess One to Watch!

Hey everyone, I hope everyone is having a great start to the week

I just entered the Guess One to Watch Competition in order to hopefully kickstart my life long dream of fashion journalism! If I win, I will have the opportunity to write for their 1.5 million viewers.

I would absolutely adore everyone if they were able to vote for me, each like is worth 10 style points, and you can vote once every 24 hours. It only takes a minute out of your busy day

If you could help me, it would mean more than I could ever explain.

My Time At Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia

As I’ve mentioned, I spent this week immersed in the fast paced and exciting world of the fashion industry, being selected as one of the few to work as part of the Fashion Week Team, where I had the opportunity to work back stage with the models, as well as front of house, assisting in the organisation of various aesthetical properties of the catwalk and it’s surrounding room.
It was one of the best experiences to say the least.

Having the opportunity to work so closely within the industry, I gained so much knowledge, in particular the hours of work before hand that goes into a 15 minute show. This was experienced during my time of ushering the Watson X Watson show, as well as An Ode To No One.

Watson X Watson displayed an array of designs consisting of pastels, metallic, block colours, feminine shapes, as well as a contrast of ‘boyfriend-esque’designs.

However, it was the ambiance that filtered the room which really achieved a magic persona. This was created through a creative construction of tree branches, which were decorated with rows of flowers which were flurescently stained to glow in the dark. A fresh colour palette was achieved through pure white seating, as well as gift bags. This ultimate contrast was the fluorescent WxW sign which was positioned centre front and became the centrepiece, glowing throughout the room.
An overall nature vibe was achieved for the entire show.

An Ode To No One, presented us with symmetry and femininity. This was achieved through pastels, and lineage which brought to light the female form.

The guests were presented with a bag containing products from their sponsors. Positioned next to it, was a beautiful blue orchid which brought to life the entire white room through its simplicity and vibrancy.

It was however, the privilege I received on the first day that over came all other experiences for the rest of my week.

Dressing for the Whitney Eve show was one of the most exciting experiences, I was able to catch a glimpse into the glitz and glamour of the high fashion and fast paced industry, learning to quickly change the models before they were due back out on the catwalk, while having been surrounded by people such as Joh Bailey, Lara Bingle, Nicole Warne from Gary Pepper Vintage, Jay Lyon from The Hills, and even Whitney Port herself who were all back stage before the show. It was a dream come true.

Lets not forget about the garments. Whitney Eve displayed her Whitney Eve collection, as well as her WE collection, which will be sold in Sportsgirl around August. These collections channeled the classic, youthful woman with her vibrant designs which accentuated the wearers figure, as well as being combined with feminine drapage and soft fabrics and patterns. They were all very wearable, a perfect collection for the Sportsgirl shopper.

New Love: Mirrored Nail Polish

This week I had the pleasure of working at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia (more on that later). Throughout my time there, I met and saw an array of people and collections that opened my eyes up to an amazing new side of fashion.

While working back stage at one of the shows, I noticed one of the other dressers had on this mirrored nail polish. Although I had seen it before, it had looked so much better right in front of my eyes.  I couldn’t stop looking!

I don’t know about you guys, but my obsession with painted nails often takes me to a dead-end, where no shade of pink satisfies my desire for a more eye-catching detail. This is exactly what I’ve been searching for.

Better still, It comes in gold!

Winter Essentials: Bell Bottom Coats

Its coming into the colder months now, and what better way to stay warm than to look hot!

As we begin our transition from the carefree, warm, throw-on-anything-and-go lifestyle centred around beaches and parties, we must start to consider our everyday wear in preparation for the unpredictable and multifaceted nature of Winter.

In order to combat this, I am absolutely loving the bell bottom coat. Its structure is the perfect way to accentuate your gorgeous form, through the tailored waistline and the ‘bell bottom’ design from the waist down, it is the best way to achieve the desired hourglass figure,  not to mention Tres Chic!

This timeless piece is the best investment, as it is extremely versatile, it can do no wrong.

For the warmer days, pair it with a skirt and some booties, or dress it up with some heels. For the colder days, team with some on-trend leather leggings.

I love the extra military detailing, it adds that extra emphasis to your overall look.

Opting for an asymmetrical hem line will allow for more movement of the coat, and is very flattering.

Stay warm!

Fashion Palette: Spring/Summer 2012/13

I spent today with my best friend, immersed in the premier of the new seasons fashions at Sydney’s 2012/13 SS Fashion Palette. We were lucky enough to get front row seats, as we sat in awe at not only the serene, Grecian inspired pure white surroundings, but the gorgeous designs which were showcased for this up and coming season, which included the likes of ; Nicola Finetti, Wild Pony, Lauren Damelian,Baraka, Kabuklu, Wanni, and Bettina Liano just to name a few.

The dazzling show, centred with a three teared fountain, began with a live performance filled with singers and dancers.

Nicola Finetti was first up, with her collection, permeated with vibrant geometric shapes and colour blocking.

Wild Pony was a perfect exemplification of Summer time with the bright, youthful colours and feminine silhouettes.

Lauren Damelian employed the strategical use of draping in order to highlight a certain femininity and softness throughout her collection

Baraka’s classy collection consisted of incredibly detailed garments and perfect feminine shapes.

Kabukiu showcased a collection of kimono inspired garments, with light catching sequins and silky, lustrous fabrics, perfectly created to accentuate the female form.

We were quite excited when we returned to our seats to find a little black gift bag, perfectly packaged with a square box. Inside was a beautiful silken scarf. This became the personification of the Wanni collection, the colours, the simplicity and the elegance all merged into one to form this beautiful collection.

Bring on Fashion Week!

Winter 2012: Perfect Pastels

This winter, ditch the dreaded blacks, greys and navy’s, and take up colours that will add that extra bounce in your step for the chilly season.

JoBerg Fashion Week for Autumn/ Winter 2012 showcased a variety of the currently heavily trending pastel palettes, perfect for winter, adding a soft touch to any outfit, a clear comparison to the vibrant hues of Summer.

Effortlessly Chic, they add the simplistic feminine touch to any outfit, both through colour-blocking throughout the entire outfit, and by making a big impact through minimal presence.

Knits are a perfect place to start expanding your colour palette this winter, with a great range out that wont clean out your life savings, and leaving you feeling fresh and on-trend. Team with pastel jeans and camel coloured booties for the effortless high-class look so hot, it will keep the chills away.

Keep warm this winter the chic way; add a touch of pastels to brighten that winter ridden wardrobe.
