Front Row at Illionaire

02/05/2008, Australia, Australian Fashion Week Spring 0809

Front Row at Illionaire

The Ilionaire show was quite fun. The clothes are youthful and cute. I *love* the gold shoes on the guys and of course, I love their little look book/catalog as well.

Check out what it says on the front.

Lovely Lunch

Lovely Lunch

3:47PM and I just got back from a lovely lunch at this quaint Thai restaurant called “Sailors Thai” with Jason of JC Report and Julien, the ooh la la hot buyer from Villa Moda. Had a very interesting conversation about life in general. Believe it or not, it’s my first PROPER meal of the week, rice and all. I love it!

Julien is the hotness! I swear, he is even more chica in person. Check out his Prada man bag.

Mas gwapo siya in person, I swear. Mahal ko na siya grabe nakakaloka!!!

Quick Break

Quick Break

Day 4 of the shows here at Rosemount Australian Fashion Week and I'm just taking a break from all the action. Went to the Camilla show this morning, sat front row right beside the OMGGORGEOUSNESS buyer from Villa Moda. Also went backstage to take photos for The Age, a broadsheet down in Melbourne. Hotness!!

I love you all! More updates soon!!

Backstage at Material Boy

Backstage at Material Boy

Material Boy is one of the shows I’ve been looking forward to this week! I **LOVE** these super straight, super narrow leather trousers… so gorgeous!!! And the SHOES. Oh my god I love the shoes!

But yes… I went backstage with Patty to have a quick look before the show. I think Material Boy is amazing. I was surprised when I saw them at the Seven New York website. Love, love, love Material Boy!

Front Row at Thurley

01/05/2008, Australia, Australian Fashion Week Spring 0809

Front Row at Thurley

Thurley is quite nice! The models are absolutely gorgeous and there were lots of beautiful dresses which are absolutely feminine and fantastic. I loved that show; the music was nice, too.

Thurley

There’s this one white dress towards the end of the show that, IMO, was cool but the construction was quite questionable. Not particularly sure what happened but as the model walked the runway, bits and pieces of the dress (what looked like flower petals? oops!) fell off on the catwalk… otherwise, I think it was a great, immaculate show.

Patty Huntington & Sonny Vandevelde

Patty Huntington & Sonny Vandevelde

Fashhhhhhhhyon bloggers unite! Took this hilarious photo of fashion journalist Patty Huntington and Sonny Vandevelde here at the media room of Australian Fashion Week.

After a week of last minute "oh you HAVE to come" nagging, I finally caved in. I wouldn't be here in Sydney for these two amazing guys. They're the best!

Konstantina Mittas

Konstantina Mittas

Just finished watching the Konstantina Mittas show (my first show today… front row center baby!) and I thought some of the pieces were lovely!

Konstantinas Mittas

The model who opened had difficulty navigating the runway, and there’s a handful of black lace-y pieces which reminded me of Prada but nevertheless, I loved that show! The collection is quite interesting… AND refreshing to see after seeing a lot of fun and playful clothes yesterday.

Goodie Bag Extravaganza!

30/04/2008, Australia, Australian Fashion Week Spring 0809

Goodie Bag Extravaganza!

Look at all the goodie bags I amassed today. Pure insanity but I LOVE it! Why spend money (and precious time) buying presents for mum, dad and the rest of my familia de horreur back home when I could spend money on excess luggage to take these with me latah? Instant presents! Just repack them and give them as gifts… or, if you are being particularly naughty, just sell them on ebay like all the American editors do. Hahaha! Just kidding. Most of you know I have a major problem with parting away things (because I’m too damn materialistic) so good luck to me indeed.

Goodie Bags

I’m a bit knackered now (3:37AM!!!) and I promise y’all I’ll go through my loot later and take pics for everyone to see. :)

Seating Arrangement: Row A

30/04/2008, Australia, Australian Fashion Week Spring 0809

Seating Arrangement: Row A

Check out my assigned seats from today's (or should I say YESTERDAY'S) shows. I sat on the front-row for most of the shows (see the third column where it says Row A) except for Camilla & Marc (who, btw, I love very much), Silence is Golden (I was soo late so I ended up standing in a corner) and Daniel Avakian.

Not bad eh?

Thank you thank you THANK you to all the designers, the PR folks and to my hardworking host, Bex, for giving me the best views on the runway yesterday.
