After a hectic couple of weeks in Europe (and having completed 10 flights in 10 days) I'm now back in Melbourne just in time for fashion week. Last night me and Liz went to see Alex Perry in the gorgeous Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton Gardens. What a stunning venue - last time I was there was for the Affordable Artfair 2010...
There was a lot of pretty glammed up people doing the red carpet thing before entering the building and a lot of stylish people as well spotted. Also, check out the Louboutins and chrystal heals I snapped from my seat..:-) Liz and I met up with Aimee & Annie from Smart and mingled a bit with the ladies from OpenHaus.
The Cuban-inspired spring show by Alex Perry was fantastic and presented to the Melbourne crowd with standing ovations. Opening the show did Megan Gale wearing a sophisticated white tulip dress followed by models in cute spring dresses in white or bold floral prints and silk skirts. The second half of the show presented gowns in flowy silk and vibrant colours with a prominent Havana flavor to it. I could easily do my salsa moves in one of those, although it would have to be shortened a lil bit..:-)
Tonight it's the menswear runway in Central Pier, Docklands presented by Specsavers and Peroni. The 20 best male models showing off the latest in menswear fashion will be escorted on the runway by Ms Helena Christensen - or vice verca..:-) It's gonna be fab!
