The first show of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia is always exciting as there’s a huge buzz on the day as it officially kicks off proceedings. I’m a huge fan of Aje so attending their show today was exciting as I was looking forward to seeing their new collection and what pieces I’ll inevitably fall in love with!
It’s always good to support the designer whose show you are attending with your outfit so I opted for a beautiful pink and black Aje dress. The gorgeous print is a little moody in its vibe but the pops of pink perk it up and add a feminine touch.
I wanted to keep the rest of my accessories quite pared back so my black Bulgari bag and simple Isabel Marant ankle boots were the ideal complementary pieces. I found they didn’t detract from the overall feel of the dress. Having shorter hair has made me want to incorporate a few more statement earrings into my look and this pair by Reliquie helped to lift my outfit without detracting from the rest of my look.
If today was anything to go by, I can’t wait to see what else this week has in store. Stay tuned for more Fashion Week Australia coverage this week as I take you through the next few days, one outfit post at a time.
This week I was lucky enough to be invited to the Huawei P30 global launch in Paris. The three day event was filled with exciting activities and one of the standouts for me was visiting the Palace of Versailles. I haven’t been there since I was a child so it was amazing to go back and see it again.
It’s spring time in Paris so when the sun is shining the weather can be warm so I opted for this Camilla and Marc mini dress. However the mornings and afternoons are quite cool so I teamed it with my Stuart Weitzman suede over-the-knee boots and my DVF red faux fur coat—both great layering pieces. I wanted to add extra shape to this look so I cinched it in with my black Isabel Marant belt. To accentuate the pink florals in the print on my dress so I decided on taking my pink Bulgari bag with body strap out for the day. It’s the perfect style of bag when you’re on the go traveling and sightseeing as it keeps your hands free and takes out the hassle of having to carry a bag around.
Derby Day is all about monochrome and this year I decided to opted for an all-white outfit with accents of black. I had fallen in love with this look from Stella McCartney’s latest collection and wanted to wear something that had a 70s flair so this ensemble was perfect. The tailored flared pants and wide brimmed hat were a great way to mix up a traditional race day outfit. I love a white on white look but I have to admit that I spent the entire day trying to avoid puddles!
