Did you know that Melbourne Fashion Week (#MFW) is the new, and cooler brand name replacing the old name, “Melbourne Spring Fashion Week”?
I’ve teamed up with the City of Melbourne, who is proudly presenting Melbourne Fashion Week (M/FW) to hunt down my favourite models off-duty street style looks. My standout looks were definitely Lin Xie’s Vetement’s x Champion sweater and sneakers by Seppe Zanotti; Bianca Guest’s slick black vintage Guess jumpsuit; and Bradley McGill’s hound tooth pants by COS and Calibre turtleneck.
I also went behind the scenes at the model casting day to capture a few moments of the models charming the judging panel of 11 people with their personality, walk and posing. 50 new fresh faces will be chosen to walk the runway at the MFW and I’m super excited to see who will be walking at this year’s runway shows.
On the same note, I will snapping up my favourite street style looks at Melbourne Central so please come down and say hi, and hopefully get your most fashionable snapped and featured on their social channels. Pencil the details down on your diary now:

Ok, so here are my favourite looks and moments from the MFW Model Casting day.
Last Saturday, Coach Australia invited me to celebrate the new Australian Coach flagship store at Chadstone, the Fashion Capital.
The Coach flagship store has undergone a major revamp and the result: warm, luxurious and inviting. To carry on their unique combination of American attitude and design, superior product quality and commitment to customer service, a Craftmanship Bar has been added so you can have all your leather goods personalised and cleaned. Which means, every time you purchase a leather bag from the Coach store, you can choose a cute leather tag and emboss your initials or name on it, with your choice of colour and font size.
To celebrate the launch, I have created a mini fashion editorial with the Coach girls, Chervil Tan and Summer Kane from Vivien’s Modelling agency wearing their latest and edgiest collection SS17. My favourite pieces are their leather and varsity bomber jackets.
Day 5 street style highlights were taken outside Proenza Schouler, Phillip Lim and Thom Browne shows.
Gucci bags and loafers; denim under skirts and shirts with large cuffs; frayed pants and skirts; and off-the shoulders continued to dominate the streets; but I’m especially appreciating the level of colour and sophistication. I’m loving the super long vests layered over a simple white shirt and denim pants; large pleated tops, slip dresses worn over tees and the new Philip Lim SS17 collection is to die for.
Below are my personal favourites, including funny woman, Whoopi Goldberg and she hasn’t aged one single bit! She was such a treat to shoot, incredibly charismatic where she made a few jokes while she signaled us to get off the road so we can take a picture of her without getting killed. What a legend!
