Eva

How incredible is Eva’s floral Mary Katrantzou dress?! The flower field print is impossibly good, and the colours are just so crisp! I do love how Eva’s red lips tie in with the middle band, it’s the perfect finishing touch. It’s hard not to be swept up by Mary Katrantzou’s work, her prints really are extraordinarily amazing. There’s no doubt her innovative pieces have played a huge part in the clashing print phenomenon that has taken over fashion these past few seasons.

Backstage with L’Oréal Professional

On Sunday evening I went backstage before Frankie’s show at L’Oréal Melbourne Fashion Festival. It was super sweet to see all the girls dressed so bright and playful; the clothes really did create a youthful vibe backstage! They were all taking photos of each other on their phones, playing up their eclectic outfits and just generally being young girls. Sydney based hair stylist Brad Ngata was the hair director of the show, which saw the models sporting cute fishtail braids from beneath their bright beanies. There’s something so carefree and relaxed about fishtail braids which I just love.

A big thank you to L’Oréal Professional for bringing me down and taking me backstage, it was lots of fun to check out LMFF and hang out in Melbourne for the weekend!

Backstage at L’Oréal Fashion Festival

Last weekend L’Oréal Professional kindly invited me to L’Oréal Melbourne Fashion Festival to shoot backstage at a couple of the shows. It was lots of fun to meet the team at L’Oréal, catch up with the many bloggers who were also down for LMFF and watch the hair stylists work their magic.

I ducked backstage before the InStyle show, which featured some of Australia’s top designers including Bianca Spender and Yeojin Bae (who looked incredible front row in one of her own designs). Caterina Di Biase was the Hair Director of the show, and she did an amazing job creating the perfect half up-do. Whimsical, slightly messy, but still pulled back off the face; it was one of the more accessible looks I’ve seen on the runway. Watching Caterina work her magic made me realise that great hair is no happy accident, and that it’s high time I try something new. I’m feeling all inspired!

Sara

How amazing does Sara look in this shot I took for Harpers Bazaar style file? Her metallic Jac + Jack jumper is pretty incredible, I love their clean, simple designs. Jac + Jack’s sample sale was last week and I had to fight the urge not to go (discount cashmere doesn’t come around often) but there are only so many sales one can attend each season before the cash flow starts to suffer. Sara’s Shakuachi shorts are pretty great too. I love the idea of wearing shorts and a jumper in autumn, it’s such a fun juxtaposition. And it’s perfect for Sydney’s not-quite-cold weather.
