Fashion Week is over for another year and what a week it was. It’s always such a whirlwind few days, from the excitement of the very first show featuring Aje to doing Date with Kates with a few designers and catching up with friends and colleagues, it’s been such a busy time. But as always I’ve had fun and I’m looking forward to doing it all again next year.
Also the upside of attending Fashion Week is seeing the upcoming trends and pinpointing what I will be adding to my wardrobe come spring/summer. From interesting silhouettes to beautiful bold prints, there’s definitely plenty to love. Take a peek into what I got up to celebrating all things Australian fashion.
It’s been a hectic week this week in the lead up to the start of Fashion Week as I get all my looks together for all the shows. In amongst all the prep however it’s been nice doing Mother’s Day activities both with the girls and two of my favourite mums ever – my own mum and my sister-in-law Hoda. I hosted a little brunch for the three of us this week ahead of Mother’s Day and it was lovely to hang out and spend some quality time together.
Now it’s time to get ready for another big few days at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia.
One of the great things about my job is being able to work with great brands and one of the highlights of this week was flying down to Melbourne to attend the launch of the new TOD’s store at Chadstone shopping centre. Not only was I able to check out the new store but as part of the launch we were able to see how they make the iconic TOD’s driving shoe from start to finish. Seeing the craftsmanship that goes into each piece was just incredible.
Speaking of brands, I’m gearing up for Fashion Week this week and can’t wait to bring you my picks, favourite trends and all my looks from one of Australian fashion’s biggest events. Hope you have a great week!
Given the number of public holidays we’ve had over the last week or so it’s hard to keep up with what day it is! I managed to squeeze in a relaxing few days at our family farm in the Southern Highlands and made the most of the gorgeous weather we’ve been having by going for a stroll with the girls and Luke. It’s always a nice way to spend time as a family.
We decided to make the most of the long weekend and get out of Sydney and drive down to our family farm to spend the Easter break. It’s always nice to get out of town for a bit and wind down in the country for a few days. Also the girls always really like spending time with their cousins and getting to play outdoors and run around. Being able to recharge our batteries means we come back ready to tackle the week ahead.
I hope you’re all having a fantastic Easter holiday!
It’s been an exciting week for my role as ATC ambassador, attending a fashion launch at Sydney’s Wisteria and also The Championships over the weekend. I love autumn racing season so it’s been great fun getting in the midst of it all. Not to mention the fashion trends are so good for all the event on the racing calendar at this time of year so it’s definitely been an exciting week as far as outfits go.
It’s not often you get to spend your working week hanging out in Paris, but that’s what I was lucky enough to be able to do over the the last few days. I was in the City of Light to celebrate the launch of the new Huawei P30 and spent my week taking in the sights from a cruise on the River Seine to visiting the breathtaking Palace of Versailles along with being able to take it all in with the help of my new gadget.
I’m always so thankful to be able to travel for work and this week was absolutely incredible. Being able to spend time in one of my favourite cities, sightseeing and indulging in many a great meal along with being invited to attend such a huge launch was definitely a pinch-me moment. Now to get back to normal…
We had a week of typical trans-seasonal weather in Sydney which meant sunshine one minute and torrential downpour the next. The upside though? The girls were able to wear these adorable raincoats whilst out and about on one of our usual walks as they inspected all the gorgeous blooms that are still on display in our neighbourhood.
And lastly I ended the week attending the Golden Slipper Stakes in Sydney in my new role as ATC ambassador but also to take on reporting duties for 7 Racing. It was great to be able to get in front of the camera again and chat all things fashion at one of my favourite racing events.
Such an exciting week this week! I was so thrilled to be able to announce that I am the ATC 2019 Autumn Racing ambassador. As Sydney racing has such a special place in my heart I’m particularly excited to be taking on this role. Plus as a bonus I was able to have Sophia and Grace join in on all the activity which is always great when you’re a working mum and are able to combine work and family.
