How is your week going? I hope you’ve enjoyed reading my previous MSFW blog post. Another highlight during MSFW was attending Lady Petrova’s Prom party. Instead of hosting yet another runway show, the clever designer (in pink) hand-picked a number of pretty models to showcase her feminine dresses on glowing podiums. Attendees were all given floral corsages and there were more pretty helium balloons than one can count. I was brought back in time to my high school formal days, except that I didn’t have a date. Hubby was sick at home with the flu so I had to fly solo that night, and had to get changed in the car as I came straight from working as a vet.
After enjoying the ladylike glamour party, I dashed down to the Town Hall to attend the Emerging Designers Series runway featuring Alpha60, Trimapee, Above, From Britten P/L, Kuwaii, Limedrop, S!X and Arnsdorf. It was great to catch up with the doyenne of fashion, Jenny Bannister and super stylist Phillip Boon, the designers of Limedrop, Clea and Nathan (having a wardrobe envy moment with Clea’s jacket!) and Maria of Sleekit, wearing the most fabulous mod dress by Holly Fulton from ASOS.
What I wore: Vintage jumper, necklace, skirt (from Paris on this trip), bag (from eBay), belt, and Romace was Born resin cuff (as my corsage), YSL pumps
Always a pleasure and an honour to be photographed with Lady Melbourne, who is also a genius seamstress who can reinvent vintage dresses to fit like a glove on her lovely figure. I wore lots of colour in celebration of spring and a wool jumper because it was so cold. Thank you MSFW for yet another memorable night!
And you’ll be glad to know that I’m working a lot less this week, enjoying the lovely company of friends. I think I have a new hobby, patisserie-hopping.
