I always leave putting together fashion week outfits to the last minute. It’s always too stressful to pre-plan what to wear five days in a row when you have no idea what the weather forecast will be. So when I packed for Sydney this year, I brought with me a whole heap of separates with no idea how I was going to wear them. The only thing I did have myself covered for was basically every single climate situation – sunscreen, raincoat, umbrella, boots, sandals, jackets, dresses, singlets, jumpers. Yes my suitcase was brimming and I’m kind of glad because if I was to cull, the first things to go would have been the raincoat and umbrella, both which ended up being so very handy over the extremely wet week. So when it came to day three, I had already exhausted half my options. I knew I wanted to wear two pieces, this fab Leroy bomber and also this bright Romance was Born dress (yes, dress). They were the most beautiful pieces, but they weren’t quite made for each other or myself – I’m clearly too short for everything straight off the runway (sigh). So in a moment of creative genius (or shall I say sartorial panic) I came up with the idea of folding the top of the dress neatly and underneath the puff of its skirt. Can you tell there’s a whole bodice and all underneath this psychedelic print? I think I may have scared a few people into thinking I casually chopped off half this Romance was Born dress!

One of my favourite emerging designers Leroy presented the most stunning Spring/Summer 2014/15 collection ‘Blue Rose’. I loved the fusion of structured silhouettes with a vibrant colour palette of feminine floral prints. Every piece made it a youthful, wearable collection with a signature modern twist of uneven hemlines and masculine cuts. This is exactly what I look forward to seeing in my wardrobe – how beautiful is that rose print midi?

Backstage at Alice McCall with Bowers & Wilkins

Alice McCall backstage is always an absolute thrill to cover. The energy before the show is electrifying, everyone is in such a brilliant mood and seeing the pieces up and personal allows you to appreciate just how much effort and detail has gone into every look that walked down the runway of Cruise 14/15. Celebrating 10 years of Alice and with glitter flowing through every models’ hair, I felt like I was being transported into a dreamlike landscape filled with lipstick print and endless pastel. Amongst the crazy amount of things that needed to happen before the show began, there was so much laughter and excitement which I had so much fun capturing. I’m beyond excited for Alice, who I finally met for the first time this year – her quirky prints, use of colour and eclectic designs are one of the things I look forward to most every Summer and even though Summer has just ended, I just can’t wait for the next to begin.
