The giant UV lights centre stage of the Magdalena Velevska’s show at RAFW evoked curiosity and delight in most attendees. I loved the crystal formation it took and reminisced about a childhood game of ‘pick-up sticks’. Turns out, the clothes were just as mind-blowingly beautiful.
I’m a sucker for pink and orange, and pleats. So this collection is right up there in my dream list. I loved the architectural lines and accordion pleats. Well done Magdalena Velevska. You know her name is phonetic so it’s actually really easy to spell :) Please click here to see her full collection.
In the last post, I said that I had something pretty cool to show you – well here it is. As I was uploading a photo of her centre piece onto Facebook, I got stopped in my tracks by some bloggers because my Roksanda Ilincic jacket decided to glow along with the UV lights.
Looks like great designers all have pink on their minds. If I got $1 for every compliment I received on the Roksanda jacket, I won’t need to work any more.
On a complete contrast is our Vogue Editor, Kristie Clements, in an all-noir ensemble. Love her jade earrings though!
I love the Style Stalker ladies, Rachel and Sue-Ann. 2 hotties and very smart business women. Their label is only 2 years old and already stocked over 250 stores globally. And they look like spring chickens! I’m besotted with Sue-Ann’s Style Stalker dress!
After Magdalena’s show, I caught up with talented emerging Aussie designer Anne Tu, of The Eleventh Hour, whom I blogged about here. We are the same age! I was under the impression that her label has been blossoming for a while now, but when she contacted me last year, that was her very first collection! I was amazed by her tailoring, I guess that’s the talent you get when you train under Preen. Anne is very driven and focused, I cannot wait to see her succeed.
Next up- Dhini’s show! Boy have I been waiting to see this collection!
My outfit: Roksanda Ilincic silk gazaar jacket (available via pre-order)/Spijkers en Spijkers silk top and wool shorts/vintage belt/Pauric Sweeney bag/Viktor &Rolf scarf bracelet/YSL shows. Necklace made by me
