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.

Yippee I’m back in Melbourne, time to get all my posts organised and up! It was such a dreary start to Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia this year. I’ve never associated Sydney with rain however it rained as we walked across the tarmac at Sydney airport and it continued to rain all week when I was up for MBFWA.

I picked up this Josh Goot puffer vest the week before at the Chapel St sample sale and brought it to Sydney with me as my only piece of outerwear. Day #1 turned out to be freezing and with a suitcase of all sorts of separates but no looks planned, I’m so glad that I was able to pull together a couple of basic pieces to go with the crazy print of this vest.

Jysla and I shot these photos under cover before Carla Zampatti – by luck I remembered to pack an umbrella (I forgot last year) however no umbrella was big enough to stop us from getting drenched in the torrential weather as we climbed out of the taxi on Sunday afternoon :’-)

Wearing: Pepa Loves top, Topshop wrap skirt (similar here), Topshop RISK black heeled sandals (similar here & here), Another8 ‘Jamie’ black leather backpack, Oscar Wylee ‘Brooke’ sunglasses (similar here), Lucy Folk friendship bracelet and Samantha Wills necklaces (similar here).

One crazy 24 hours is about to begin! I can’t decide what’s more important to do right now, pack for Sydney or cram in some last minute revision for an assessment tomorrow. After wasting too much time contemplating, I have ended up here, getting just one more post up before I sleep, frantically pack and cram last minute revision (what I get for blogging right now..), drive to uni, smash (I hope) that assessment, drive as fast as I can within the speed limit to get home, get changed, make my way to the H&M launch party (!!), run home and catch an early morning flight to Sydney. I am so excited to see H&M finally hit Australia and the fact that they are opening their first store in Melbourne is 100 times exciting! Hopefully the introduction of H&M and Uniqlo (also opening in a couple of weeks)  will mean that more international chains will soon warm up to the idea of visiting our shores. Perhaps a COS in Melbourne, H&M? :-)
