Behind the Scenes! Backstage at MYER SS15 Fashion Runway Show

photo 2(4)I recently had the opportunity of being part of the backstage team at (all-the-amazingness-that-is) MYER’s SS15 Fashion Runway Show. I was part of the dressers team. As a dresser, we are all assigned our own models for the day. We steam and spot clean, then in the frantic rush of it all, we dress them in each of their looks before they rush off down the runway. It was great to see what goes on behind the curtains of the runway and it was such an adrenalin high that hours of work seemed to pass by in the blink of an eye.

Observatorie x Belle Flaneur = Pre Fall 2014 Givenchy Installation @ Robby Ingham Paddington

This week I had the absolute privilege of working under the wing of the founder and director of Belle Flaneur, Natalie Coulter. Myself and Tracy Dixon (@StyleWiser on instagram) assisted in the installation of the Givenchy Pre Fall 2014 window displays and in store merchandising at the ah-mazing Robby Ingham store in Paddington.  Natalie is ALL about sustainable living. Her installations prove no different. She works closely with Reverse Garbage to repurpose and resuse and create from materials that would otherwise be made into landfill.

Finders Keepers

Image

If you’ve ever been to a Finders Keepers Market, you’d know they are the crème de la crème of markets.

Jam-packed with the freshest of new and upcoming designers, it’s an absolute feast for the senses.

Finders Keepers showcase anything from food and candles to fashion and art.

It’s a definite must-go if you want to discover new talent or just simply after something a little different for your home.

I arrived quite late to the Sydney venue- roughly an hour before closing. So I was in a frantic rush trying not to miss anything.

I did end up with this GORGEOUS print by Rachel Kennedy Designs, who is an absolute talent and you can buy her designs for an absolute steal.  Check out her work here.
