Sydney Fashion Weekend 2012

Hello beautiful people! Sorry for the week-long absence, I've been studying , or rather, getting anxious, for my upcoming finals. This coupled with the fact that I had a rather painful extraction of my wisdom teeth a few days ago has made it pretty hard to do anything. Worst thing is I couldn't talk for a couple days, and it's still a bit painful to open my mouth. And it's so swollen I look like Eliza Thornberry. Wah =(. 

Anyways, a couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to attend this years Sydney Fashion Weekend. I've never actually been before so it was a new experience. It's a chance for the public to get a glimpse of Australia's ever-evolving fashion industry, featuring fashion shows from some new and favourite home-grown designers, and best of all, gorgeous designer clothes at some of the lowest prices you will ever see! It's a really good chance to get your hands on some beautiful clothes at a fraction of the price (albeit you may need to scour the racks to find some of the smaller sizes, and it's best to get in quick). In fact, I didn't intend on spending the amount of money that I did =P, I actually didn't expect to find so much nice stuff! I of course wished I had more money to spend =P. Definitely going back next year to grab me some bargains.

Wine Time!

Road Testing my Miss Selfridge Boots

I must apologise for the pictures, I have an unhealthy obsession with Instagram atm, so pretty much all my photos have been Instagramed (Great excuse to not lug my huge ass canon around haha). OOOoo BTW you can check out my pics/follow me - eesh_89!!

I went with a couple of friends and we had access to a VIP room upstairs overlooking the masses of boutique stalls set up within Hordern Pavilion. We were treated to champagne and a little goodie bag while we marvelled at our purchases.

The fashion show was set up on one side of the hall, and it featured designers such as Ginger & Smart, Jets, Hussy, White Suede, Nicola Finetti, Bec & Bridge and Miss Unkon (personal fav!). These designers also had stalls set up from which we could purchase many of the items the models had worn.

Just some of the designers =). They are a bit blurry because I'm not good at
taking pictures of moving things haha

It was an amazing day of shopping and a great insight into where Australian fashion is at and where it's going. It so great to see so many Australian designers producing amazing clothes and it was a great opportunity to grab some statement designer pieces for the wardrobe (not that I can fit anything else into it atm =P).

Woohoo I think i did pretty good if I may say so myself!!

=D xx
