Destination / Wish You Were Here

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia, Sydney

From Dion Lee’s sleek opening to Romance Was Born’s thrilling finale, these are the moments from MBFWA Resort 18 we won’t forget.

The shows …
Dion Lee: A setting you can’t beat. Underneath dark and looming clouds, with the Opera House sails as a backdrop we were off to a striking start. It was the suiting that stole the show.
Holly Ryan: showcasing her newest collection against her handmade sculptures was some true artistry on display.
C/meo Collective: The floral arrangements by Fleurette made an impact. Sculptural and feminine.
Romance Was Born: How could we go past it? Closing out the week with a colourful, opulent and dramatic end. The music, the girls and their walks, the hair and those clothes (or lack thereof).

The beauty …
The beauty at Christopher Esber was a favourite with dramatic eyes coupled with easy and relaxed hair by Redken. Just the way we like it.

Between shows …
Meals on the run. Jap’s Table for easy, quick dumplings. Brickfields for a coffee and a bacon sandwich. And to end the week with the luxury of sitting down, we headed to Ester.

The essentials …
It’s all about easy pieces you can wear again and again. Flats, always. Sneakers for added comfort. Simple black pants, a carry all that can fit your life for a week and a trench that’s warm enough for night but light enough for day. And we’ll be making sure we remember a portable phone charger next year.
