I love the feeling of wearing a beautiful homegrown Australian designed garment. I always find the colour palettes to be bold and the prints nostalgic. Australian designers know how to design for our lifestyle, which I think is why they are so loved overseas. Everyone wants to feel like they have gone from Bondi to a Bar even if they are on the other side of the world!!! Tonight I cabbed it up the road to Paddington to celebrate the unveiling of 'The Australian Walk of Style' - found on Oxford St and Glenmore Rd, at what is known as the Hub for Australian retailers 'The Intersection Paddington'. This always trendy strip was taken over by what seemed to be a never ending red carpet, covered by well dressed Sydney-siders we all gathered to celebrate what is a vibrant yet at times struggling Australian industry. Australian Fashion Week founder Simon Lock chose Collette Dinnigan, R.M. Williams, Mark Keighery, Akira Isogawa and Sass & Bide as the first five Australian designers to be embedded into The Intersection's 'Walk of style' and two designers will be added every year with Woollahra Council backing the initiative.
(Right on Woollahra council never knew they were so fashion forward!)
My right hand lady tonight was none other than talented up and coming Australian photographer and blogger Nichole Cooper! Nichole rocked a beautiful print dress from Australian designer Sara Phillps You can check out here blog HERE. I wore yet another Australian designer (of course could not wear anything NON AUSSIE TONIGHT!) 'Bettina Liano' Autumn/Winter 12 collection. I couldn't go past the tangerine orange, I am a sucker for loud colours teamed with a blue and white drop waist skirt. My bag is from Sportgirl and shoes by Betts! Big thankyou to Roxy from Sweaty Betty PR and the team for a fab event xxx
