MFW Model Casting Day 2018

It was refreshing to see a new wave of bright young faces and personalities at this year’s Melbourne Fashion Week model casting day, and I’m very honoured to be associated with the event which celebrates diversity and beauty from all cultural backgrounds. I still believe and see, that Australia is still sadly a racial discriminatory country. I mean, take a look at all the fashion campaigns on the billboards or have a scroll through Instagram, most talents are white Caucasians. I was chatting to one of my Stylist friend the other day and he shared with me that a Customer called the company and complained about an advertisement which featured a black model. Then she carried on saying she will no longer shop there because of it. What utter bollox! It makes me so upset to know that racism is still predominant in our society. Well isn’t our sunburnt country historically dominated by beautiful Aboriginal people?

Anyway, I’m not here to rant but do let me know if you have experienced anything similar. I want to make a point that we should all support all walks of beauty, size, shape and heights! God created us to be all unique and we should love and be acceptance of each other.

Without further odu, here are some of the favourite moments captured from the MFW casting day. In my next post I will share my favourite model street style looks so stay tuned.


Finalist for Target Australia Petite Posse

I started out my day at the Target Australia Head Quarters for #petitesposse model casting for the Target Runway show. Uh huh, you heard me right. M.O.D.E.L C.A.S.T.I.N.G. I was one of the lucky 15 Australian Finalists to be chosen by Target Australia in search for the face of #petitesposse at VAMFF, and walk the Target Runway. I know, totally obscure and something I never imagined myself ever doing except for being behind the lens. Having said that, I’m very grateful for every surprise and opportunity thrown at me. I actually enjoyed the entire experience because I got to meet the other beautiful models, and of-course meeting the gorgeous and super woman Dannii Minogue (true story: the first time I met her was when I served her at the Naturopathy counter back in my Pharmacy Assisting days 10 years ago ….) which was a dream come true.

I didn’t make the cut (must be my awkward catwalking skills) and I headed straight to VAMFF to capture the street style action along with my beautiful side kick, Nicola Tauros.

My entire look is by S.Wallis’s latest AW15 collection. I’m obsessing over this tweed vest right now.
