VAMMF opening night: David Jones Fashion Show Tuesday the 14th of March 2017 7.30pm start.
Love an opening night! After a day at work, then feeding my family dinner, and driving my little one to soccer training, getting ready before 6.30pm was a struggle. As a working mum and someone who doesn’t have a glam squad at hand, I think I did ok!
The location of the Exhibition building is stunning. Big space, easy car park access and on a warm night, it was buzzing. Priceline had hair and make-up application to freshen up, which I needed as I was a little shiny on arrival. Got a nude lip top up and a powder to ease the shine, and I was ready…
I then went for a drink at the Asahi Beer garden where I enjoyed a chilled rosé and took a few happy snaps whilst waiting for some girls to arrive!
The Lavazza section was buzzing with coffee, espresso martinis and sweets. I caught up with a few fashion bloggers and other stylists. It’s always great to have the chance to meet instagrammers who I follow, and chat all things style with them.
Show was about to start!
I headed in and took a seat…so looking forward to seeing the runway and the stunning clothes and AW17 fashion
Plenty of red! Red, red, and more red. So grab any red outfit and you are instantly on trend. Loved the Scanlon & Theodore looks. White is still a big trend…white shirts, pants and blazers.
Floral trend was huge in the catwalk, with Camilla & Marc incorporating floral in their new season range.
Khaki & military looks were shown on the runway too. Soft silk khaki shirts, along with soft pants worn with high stilettos were a feature.
Feminine looks along with detailed textures, frills and lace are still a huge trend with Thurley.
Straight hair has also made a come back, with poker straight blow waves replacing loose soft curls.
Peter Mac on the keyboard, and the amazing Sean Wright singing “Here comes the rain again” by The Eurythmics, made the finale an amazing experience
Thank you to David Jones and VAMFF.
