I went to two shows today, Oroton and Maggie Marilyn and it called for a day of embracing soft neutrals. Specifically this Isabel Marant look which is a great example of the beauty of elevated staples. This jacket with its puff sleeves and cinched tie waist is reminiscent of a safari jacket, but with softer lines, and feminine vibes. And all those details combined make for a jacket that’s wearable but with a little extra personality. And what better staple to pair it with than a pair of crisp white jeans? The neutral on white felt very fresh and I loved the fact its such a departure from the usual hues you’d expect on the first day of winter.
I always like to wear something from the brands whose shows I’m seeing and this time around, I zeroed in on this tan Oroton bag. It’s got such a beautiful structured silhouette which adds a bit of polish to the more relaxed silhouette of this outfit, and I could wear it clutch-like or throw it on over my shoulder which is perfect for a day with back to back events. It was then all about these white slingbacks from Bottega Veneta, and wearing white bottoms with white shoes I feel gives a nice elongated effect. And to top it off, gold oval-framed sunglasses to add a hint of playfulness to this look.
I had two shows today, Oroton and Maggie Marilyn plus a fitting at David Jones so I needed makeup that was going to have me looking fresh-faced but had staying power. When I’m on the go I don’t like anything too fussy in terms of beauty looks but I do want it to look polished and put together. This means a great flawless complexion and some bold colour accents. I had my makeup professionally done again, something I usually do for big events such as this so I made sure to take note of all the products that my makeup artist used. Here’s a breakdown, product by product.
Wearing this pastel pink Rebecca Vallance dress on the first day of Afterpay Australian Fashion Week called for an equally as fun, and vibrant beauty look to match. So, I called in my go-to makeup artist Michael Brown to create a look that was all about fun, feminine shades. The colour palette was a lot of shades in the pink family, interspersed with slightly rosier and coral hues. I always like my makeup to look polished, but also to have some vibrancy to it and this look was the perfect marriage of the two. Here’s a product-by-product breakdown of what Michael used to create this look.
