GQ Australia menswear was by far my favourite show to end VAMFF. It was refreshing to see a diverse range of Australian talent and streetwear inspired apparel. It wasn’t the typical tailored suit with a tie, but a bolder look into menswear fashion such as chunky knits, layering of pieces and brighter colours. My stand-out piece was the all red velvet sports inspired ensemble, and that killer long red coat with layered with a white shirt and roll-necked knit. It was also exciting to see P.E Nation debuting their mens streetwear collection on the runway!
The designer line-up were:
- Chris Ran Lin
- Jac+ Jack
- Jack London
- P.E NATION
- Strateas Carlucci
Ginger & Smart showcased its stunning AW18 collection at VAMFF 2018, and I was really fortunate to go behind the scenes to capture my desirable looks as well as experiencing the runway show thanks to AMPR. The show was presented by Marie Claire and supported by Priceline Pharmacy and it was captivating display of femininity, shimmer and a touch of confidence cool.

After a super long vacay in Hong Kong, I’m so glad to be back on the fashion week scene, this time at the back of house capturing my favourite runway looks at VAMFF. Tonight’s runway show was presented by David Jones; and hair and makeup by Priceline Pharmacy. This season was all about the patterns, hound tooth and plaid blazers, and pointy boots. If you were to ask me what’s my favourite, I would have to say the hound tooth long coat with this beautiful gathered back by Bianca Spender, and Jessica Gomes’s heavenly floral shirt and flared silk pants! I also loved the caramel and electric blue colour combination. Ok it’s your turn, tell me what is yours!

If you take away the superficiality of fashion, and make the effort to know the heart of every fashion soul, you never know who you end up being good friends with. Well Emily Highfield is definitely one of those people. I met Emily Highfield (well properly) at last year’s VAMFF when I stopped her for a street style snap, however I had no idea she was a seasoned Fashion Designer. I’ve always thought she was just a Fashionista and popular Digital Influencer, but how wrong was I. As our friendship grew, her passion for designing luxe activewear also grew, and I’m super proud to a part of her journey; and I even got to shoot her second activewear collection lookbook and go behind the scenes (and FROW) to her first ever, MBFWA 2017 Active Collective runway.
Em, huge congrats! WOOOO HOOOOO You did it (and does the running-man celebration dance) XXX
