Have you ever pondered over the ideal Fashion Week? Like were you to take helm of say, Australian Fashion week then where, what and who would it entail? Farfetch posed this question and I have to admit I had a great deal of pleasure contemplating it. Like the ‘there’, which I felt a stylish mix of iconic Melbourne and Sydney locales was due; however, evidently based in Melbourne Town. Dreamy locations like the Bondi Iceburgs and The Rocks for Sydney and a home base at The Esplanade in St Kilda for Melbourne. Being fixed waterfront is essential. And in a perfect world, the Flinders Street Station Ball Room would be available to hold the most exquisite shows for labels like Romance Was Born. The what would be an obvious array of Australian designers, like Dion Lee and Toni Maticevski. And with international headliners like Alexander McQueen, Wang and Victoria Beckham to entice. Lastly the who would include a gaggle of stylish bloggers and guests like Alexa Chung, the Hadid sisters, Leigh Lezark, Sarah Harris, and Lily Aldridge.
Importantly what does the ultimate Fashion Week ensemble comprise of? For me it’s a glorious feud between minimalism and embellishment. Femininity and fierceness. A tenacious need to embody and evoke ones personality and uniqueness in a confluence of equally passionate and energetic influencers, whilst still remaining authentically you. Stripes, because stripes. A bit of platinum sparkle (yes you read that right) with understated and impracticably high heels, which are a requisite for sashaying between shows; chauffeured no less.
