Sydney Fashion Week - Day 4










Arriving at Sydney Fashion Week each day, you start to notice the most common accessories with everyone's outfits are - camera's, coffee and cigarettes. The days can be long and there's always a little down time to mingle with all types of characters. Or just people watch and appreciate the views of Sydney Harbour and the Opera House in between shows. I'm well and truly into the groove now and I think my coffee intake has doubled over the week!

Today was a special day with two invitations to go backstage for Yeojin Bae and Limedrop. Of course the first thing that popped into my head was - naked girls! But once you're ushered through the third security point. I was more overwhelmed by the frantic zero hour preparation being done before the show. Assistants on the floor making last minute alterations to garments and shoes, people being photographed and make up artists prepping the models. It was a great experience to see the back-end process and why runway show's are notorious for running late.

My partner in crime for Fashion Week, Valerie Soh was dressed by Tovah for the first two show's of the day- which seems to be, just another perk of the biz for influential people in fashion.

I attended the TAFE NSW S.I show which included Anna Westcott, Charlotte O'Carrigan, Emma Mulholland and Leah Hibbert. I wasn't going to miss this show because I wanted to see the young blood coming up the ranks. I also know from working in the creative industry that young talent can be more daring with their work. I was impressed with some of the pieces throughout the show and must give mention that the TAFE students were much more creative with the digital screen at the beginning of the runway than other show's I'd seen.

The last show by Alistair Trung was a great show to finish the day on. A blanket of smoke was created down the runway to set the mood for a very high level, dark show with a sinister soundtrack of ambient sounds and heavy bass. Very cool!

I've definitely learnt more appreciation for women's shoes, bangles and how important accessories are in runway shows to tie a look together.
