As a blogger, I receive some pretty exciting invites; from intimate store openings, to large scale media showcases, I’ve attended some stellar events! That being said, I was very excited to receive an exclusive invite courtesy of Scenestr, to Indooroopilly Shopping Centre’s Lead The Field event, comprising of a sit down dinner and runway spectacular, showcasing the Autumn Winter fashion trends for the racing season.
Needing no time to mull it over, my fabulous guest/photographer Erin and I snapped into style mode, brainstorming the perfect outfit for the occasion…I mean, what does one wear to such a prestigious event with a celebrity guest list, MC’d by Kate Waterhouse no less? It’s times like these I wonder when my fairy godmother will appear, new season Manolo Blahnik’s in hand and wand at the ready.
Channeling a sophisticated ensemble, I opted for a new season Cue dress, which features a high neck and dainty flared hem. I just love the contrast seen in the printed floral pattern, interspersed with metallic jacquard panelling and rose gold hardware. Keeping accessories simple with a pair of black stilettos and minimal jewellery, I left the statement to the dress and hit the runway before the models made their entrance.
Cue The Modernist Crepe Dress, Jo Mercer Jagger Heels, Oroton Glomesh Clutch (similar style here), Fossil Rondel Wire Bracelet, Fossil Bangle (similar style here), Michael Kors Blair Pave Watch, Swarovski Brief Earrings.
If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll already know I met the cast of Fashion Bloggers, including Zanita Whittington, Kate Waterhouse and newly appointed, Nadia Fairfax – which I have to say is the highlight of my blogging journey thus far. Not only did they look amazing in their designer threads, they were unbelievably humble and down for a chat.
Naturally, I stopped for a quick browse, taking in the gorgeous new season collections hitting the designer stores.
When it came to the runway, I was dazzled by the exquisite fabrics and rich colour palettes. In my opinion, Autumn/Winter fashion is the best season for style, allowing for luxe layering, divine interest fabrics like suede, velvet and fur and opportunities to dress like the Duchess of Cambridge accessorising cloche hats and trench coats…not to mention gentlemen look far more handsome in a suit, scarf and gloves.
Here are my highlights from the runway…
