The runway show was held at The Void in MONA and as it was quite a cavernous stone structure and we were previewing Autumn Winter 19 looks, the vibe of the night really lended itself to dark and moody colours.
Enter the perfect modern suit by Bianca Spender. I don’t think you can ever really go wrong with classic black but I liked the modern silhouette of the cropped coat worked back with tapered pants.
My accessories were simple and classic with a few subtle gold accents to add a luxe feel to my outfit. My go-to black bag at the moment is a Dior bag with a gold chain strap and name plating — it’s a great size for events and features a hand strap so it’s handy for carrying at functions. I think the suit worked beautifully with my Salvatore Ferragamo mules. The shape of the shoe with its gold wedge heel added a modern, almost futuristic touch to the rest of my look and is always a focal point whenever I wear them.
As a long time attendee of David Jones’ incredible events I was so excited to attend their new season launch on location in Tasmania. The event that took place over two days was hosted at the Museum of New and Old Art (MONA) and included being able to get up close and personal with David Jones’ fashion, beauty and lifestyle brands.
I wore this outfit to lunch on the first day where we were invited to a dine at MONA’s The Source restaurant. The menu on the day was designed by MONA’s Chef Vince Trim which showcased a lot of David Jones’ Tasmanian suppliers local providores, winemakers and distillers. In one word: amazing. The food and location was just next-level.
I wanted to go for something quite feminine with my look so I decided on a floral top and skirt by Lover. I loved the understated Forget Me Not flower print but also the finishing touches such as the subtle split in the skirt and the ruffles and button detail.
Sticking with the colour scheme of the dress, I opted for a few gold accessories to pick up the yellow flowers in the print and my longtime favourite Gucci heels and cat eye sunglasses by Lucy Folk fit the bill. A summer outfit wouldn’t be complete without my current favourite Poolside bag—it’s just the right texture and vibe for such an event.
