Spring is nature’s way of saying, “Let’s party!” ~Robin Williams
A few days ago I attended the media launch of Melbourne Spring Fashion Week at the beautiful Grand Hyatt. You may recall the beautiful blooming styles of 2010 in this post. This year, bright and bold colours took centre stage, namely in the form of artisan-crafted dresses by some of my favourite designers such as Alexandra Blak (the to-die-for clear neon accessories), Dhini, NeoDia and YeoJin Bae. I nearly squealed in delight when I saw their pieces, as these designers are dear friends and I’d been blessed enough to see their collection 2 months ago in their show rooms.
Lord Mayor Robert Doyle announced Dannii Minogue to be the Ambassador of MSFW and model Sophie Van Den Akker as the Face. There will be 26 runways, 26 worshops, 18 exhibitions, 48 in-store/retail events, 22 films, 12 parties, 22 special events and more! So many events, so little time!
It’s going to be an uber glamorous fashion week. I’m most looking forward to the High Tea Party, fashion films at ACMI, the runway shows and of course, the dressing-up part! I’m a hot weather girl, so cannot wait for the sun to turn its warm face to us! And we’d better book early this year for all the fabulous events on at MSFW, as this year’s spring fashion week is set to be the big mama of all! Cannot. Wait
What are you all up to this weekend? I’m going to be a social butterfly tomorrow and am styling an ‘Oriental Flavoured’ photo shoot on Sunday. Here’s a sneak peak of photos taking at our fitting a few nights ago. Enjoy! Will update you on Monday about how the shoot goes!
Oh, find me on Facebook at Cecylia.com and come say ‘hi’!
