Australian Fashion Week Wrap Up: Day 4

15th May, 2019

What I wore: Lots of love for the designers I was seeing today. I wore Lee Mathews for the Lee Mathews show and then I wore a Thurley dress for the Thurley show.

What inspired my look today: I really wanted to support the designers I saw so I wanted to wear their designs.

So lucky to wear this gorgeous dress by Lee Mathews

Where I went: I was on site at Carriageworks for both shows and lunch inbetween in Elizabeth Bay.

Fave trend: At Lee Mathews it was all about polka dots, voluminous sleeves, oversized silhouettes, sheer fabrications and bold prints. At Thurley it was soft and feminine with floaty Grecian gowns, pretty pastels, feminine florals, intricate detailing and beading.

Fave show: Lee Mathews. It was such a beautiful collection. Classic and elegant but very wearable.

Pretty as a picture: My Huawei P30 has been such a great sidekick during fashion week. I’ve snapped some really beautiful things but my ave shot of the day was definitely the florals on the Thurley runway. It was absolutely stunning.

Everyone was wearing: Florals. It was a big trend of today.

What I ate: My team and I stopped at Shuk in Elizabeth Bay. We ate salads, shakshuka, pita bread with haloumi, hummus and other dips. Then dinner at home with the family.

Highlight of the day: I love seeing friends at Fashion Week and the highlight of today was definitely sitting front row with some of my faves and then debriefing about the show afterwards.

Fashion, What I Wore

Australian Fashion Week: Day 4

15th May, 2019

I’m really feeling dresses at the moment and loved the boho feel of this sheer silk dress by Lee Mathews. Anything translucent can be tricky but I think when paired with the right pieces it can be a really striking look. I decided to wear a black slip and a lace bralette underneath the dress which provides just the right amount of coverage but also adds a touch of sexiness to my outfit. Layering pieces can often be a great way to create an entirely new look—and give it a new look and feel. I love the contrasting textures of sheer and lace too, as it breaks up the all black look and softens it a little.

I thought that the dress needed a little grounding with a strong shoe so I opted for a pair of pointed Mary Janes by Jimmy Choo. They’re a great shape and style and made for the ideal complementary piece to my dress. Keeping to the all black theme, I wore black cat eye Miu Miu sunglasses and accentuated my ensemble with a black and gold Dior clutch and choker.
