Hello there 🙂
Last week, I made the 15-hour flight from Los Angeles to Sydney to attend Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia for the first time. Throughout the week, I got a taste of the fashion scene as I sat in the audience at dozens of shows and presentations. What I've learned is that it's a fashion week full of cool designers with different points of view, ranging from strong swimwear (brands like Matteau and Bondi Born) to elegant evening wear (see Christopher Esber and Michael Lo Sordo). I also met up-and-coming brands like Anna Quan and Double Rainbouu, who rightly caused a stir in the fashion industry to see their new collections.
When I was not on the runway shows, I also met with fashion insiders at dinners and events and spent a lot of time exploring Sydney's fashionable neighborhoods. As I spent time with the locals and watching the streetstyle scene, I realized that the style in Australia has its own rules that I adopted during my time there. Learn in advance what I learned style-wise in Sydney, look at my outfits for the Australian Fashion Week and buy the looks I wore.
