MBFWA: Day Five

With sore feet and severely diminished small talk tolerance levels, we all traipsed to the Overseas Passenger Terminal for the final show: nANA jUDY. Australian band Amy Meredith were set to play during the show, and, thanks to lead singer Christian's bawdy interactions with the models, bestowed a fun Victoria's Secret vibe upon the proceedings. Menswear was relaxed and denim-heavy, while the ladies trotted out in mid-rise (my favourite of all rises) skinny jeans, sheer shirts and leather. Shoes were provided by StyleTread and I found myself repeatedly distracted by these ridiculously hot gold lame boots.

Tim and I then made our way to the flagship Burberry store for their big eyewear launch party, feat. delicious canapes and an edgy, unsigned UK band, Life in Film.

The party was piles of fun, but unfortunately we weren't able to stay long as I had to rush to The Sir Stamford hotel for hair/make-up/styling for Fernando Frisoni's masquerade ball. Such a tough life!
I was painted, curled, masked and dressed in less than an hour and when I finally entered the suite's main room, it was already crowded with guests trying to recognise one another beneath elaborate masks. Each of the suite's bedrooms had been transformed into a bar dedicated to a particular alcohol. There was an Aperol room, a Campari room, a Canadian Club room and the obvious favourite, a vodka room.

Stepford wife chic.

Sadly, the gorgeous trousers Fernando had dressed me in were a tad big and too long for the shoes I had brought, meaning I was either walking and tripping or standing still and becoming trapped by people treading on the flowing hems. So I had to make a sneaky change into the emergency back-up dress I'd brought, which was actually quite fitting for the venue and my mask. I do love a lucky unintentional match.

And so ends Australian Fashion week for another year. Pheeeew! TIME FOR BED.
