On the last day of RAFW, it was a lot less manic. There were a lot less photographers clicking away, less attendees at the shows and less crowded at the VIP bar :) To be honest, I was so tired, I skipped a few shows too. The highlight of Day 5 was watching the Raffles graduation show. You know how I love supporting young talented things.
My dear friend Samantha, of Bento designed this chic and practical checked wool jacket, I actually have matching pants at home and was tossing up wearing them or the blue Felder Felder leather skirt. In the end, the skirt won.
When I saw my friends from Melbourne here, I didn’t feel like I was in a foreign city any more. They remind me of home! Here is Micah, of Raww Blog, and Cheryl, the Business Chic Creator. So stylish! I’ve never seen anyone wear colour like her all week! Check out their coloured nails! Why chose one colour when you can have more!
Here is Lady Melbourne (right) with her new trend of ankle binders. I think they will take off! Wear a black pair and wait to be stopped in the streets about them. But yeah, Phoebe’s red Melissa shoes are absolutely stunning.
After the Raffles show, Leeyong, of Style Wilderness blog, and I started comparing notes. We both loved NOSNIM, the first collection showcased by Winson Tan. I can’t get this guy’s name off my tongue. Loving this space-age structural pieces. I love designers who focus attention to the cut of the garment, rather than the embellishment. See an excellent write-up about the young emerging designers here.
And this Bento jacket is also a cut above. I love the side pockets and the pink lining! I wore it with my white shirt, previously teamed with a gold leather dress seen here; vintage necklace, brooch, belt and bag; Felder Felder leather skirt (available at the boutique) and YSL pumps.
And that is the end of RAFW! Thank you Sydney for a fabulous week – great weather, great food, great shows and great friends.
