FASHION TV & F VODKA - A Night for Emerging Designers

Fashion TV hosted a wonderful night at The Backroom in Sydney, giving a chance for emerging Australian designers to show off their collections. I attended the night with my good friends Nikki and Gabe, who are both fashion enthusiasts, check out their blogs! I also met the wonderful Dee from KabukiMe Designs and Patrice, a local bubbly artist!

The collections by Kid.2 Shae, Jacinda Anne Millinery, Naomi LeviNattivo and Tweet Designs were all a true insight into the potential which all of these designers have to make it big in the market. The outstanding collection for me was Mariam Seddiq, whose designs reflected and drew inspiration from the high class sophistication of couture collections from Valentino, Dior, Yves Saint Laurent and even Chanel's Cruise Collection for 2012.

It was a great night and thanks to Shae Fleming and Fashion TV who organised the night!

Ante Magazine Launch

A night filled with art, hip hop and free drinks hit me and my friend Soma hard as we entered the Backroom for the Ante Magazine Launch! I couldn't resist taking a photo in the Mickey Mouse cutout, and here are shots of the artists showcasing their skills to the eager crowd and those wonderful customized Vans authentics on display!

Chronicles of Never Fall/Winter 2012 preview at The Annex

Gareth Moody and I

The Annex hosted a wonderful evening for the Chronicles of Never Fall/Winter 2012 collection preview last week, and I was left a bit starstruck as I entered The Annex to find Gareth Moody himself was amongst the crowd, and I was lucky enough to have a chat with the esteemed designer. 
My friend Soma and I absolutely loved the upcoming collection, Mr. Moody once again proving to the fashion industry that his powerful and eerily beautiful designs bring a new perspective on what fashion is all about. I cannot wait to get my hands on one of the pieces from the upcoming collection and wear it until it frays, like Mr. Moody said himself.

Thanks to The Annex for a great night and my Oyster magazine and Aesop products!
