A few weeks ago I went to Premiere, Melbourne’s boutique trade show event for international and Australian labels at the Royal Exhibition Building. It reminded me so much of our previous buying trips to the City of Lights, I feel a little Paris-sick. This is why I wore my Vionnet heels (last seen here), one of longest-established French haute-couture houses that started back in the 20s by Madame Vionnet who transformed the way women dressed by rescuing them from their corsets into elegant bias-cut dresses (which she invented) that showed off their natural forms. She was dubbed “Queen of the bias cut” and “the architect among dressmakers“. I am so pleased that the couture House has been revamped by head designer Rodolfo Paglialunga and will do everything I can to support Vionnet. It is truly legendary!
Outfit: Twenty8 Twelve silk jacket, available here, vintage Citi blouse (see a similar one by Robert Rodriguez here), vintage Sporty Eight skirt, vintage earrings, bag and belt, Giuseppe Zannotti for Vionnet shoes. More Vionnet shoes (ON SALE) are available here :)
It was so great to catch up with the gorgeous Rebecca McGeoch, designer of Gasparre Cashmere. Her next winter luxe cashmere collection is so chic and wearable I cannot wait for AW12! Oh, poor Theodore wasn’t allowed in…how I wish that Melbourne could become more pet-friendly like Paris one day, soon!
Have an awesome weeekend y’all! I’m working as a vet on both Sat’day and Sunday and catching up with friends afterwards. To stay connected, come to my Facebook page and follow me on Twitter where I will tickle your fancy with adorable shenanigan updates. I promise.
