My day started… with Mother’s Day celebrations all morning then I started getting ready at 2pm for the show and shooting my content for the blog before the show kicked off at 4pm. Afterwards there was an industry dinner that followed in celebration of the launch of Fashion Week.
My outfit today…the first day is relaxed so it was about comfort and style. I went for a navy Dion Lee look which incorporated a knit top and pleated skirt.
The one look I fell in love with…a black and white laser cut skirt (that I popped on my Insta-stories).
Big trends I saw… Minimalist, sleek, understated with shades of red and blue.
Parties I attended… an intimate MBFWA/Dion Lee dinner at The Calyx at Mrs Macquaries Chair.
What I ate/drank…champagne (of course!) to celebrate the launch MBFWA followed by a beautiful dinner of salmon.
The first show of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia was Dion Lee, and as a huge fan of his designs I wanted to show my support so opted for a sweater and pleated skirt from his label. I went for a full navy look but worked in different textures in order to break the outfit up and avoid the colour looking too overwhelming. Also the weather was quite cool so it was great to be in a knit to keep warm as the show took place outdoors on the Opera House forecourt. I wanted to wear statement jewellery to add some punch to my outfit so opted for rose gold earrings and a smattering of cocktail rings. My Bulgari bag was also in navy so was in keeping with the colour palette of the day, whilst the Mimco bag/wallet added a touch of colour. And of course one of my favourite Alaïa heels had to cap off the look and my round frame Miu Miu sunglasses added a touch of fun to my ensemble. Bring on the rest of the week!
