Whitney Eve by Whitney Port Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival Sydney

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival Sydney celebrates the arrival of Spring/Summer collections with 5 days of fashion events, including multiple shows by designers such as Alice McCall, Bec & Bridge, Lisa Ho and Manning Cartell.

We were lucky enough to sit front row at the Whitney Eve and W.E by Whitney Eve Collections at Sydney Town Hall. After a backstage tour, we sipped on Pellegrino as Whitney Port herself  introduced both her main collection and diffusion line. Wearing a pastel blazer with floral shorts, she explained the clothing was inspired by the dichotomy of her dual lifestyles in California and New York.

The collection showcased numerous floral and sheer numbers with a definite spring vibe, utilising a pallete of silver and pastels. Complemented by braided up-do's and yellow nails (a definite new-season trend!), the clothing definitely fulfilled Whitney's aim to be wearable both day and night.

Post-show, we headed to the Mercedes-Benz Star Lounge in the Fashion Hub, where we received gift bags, champagne and canapes. We also ran into the lovely Katrina from Kat Eyes, whom we met through interning (Check out her blog!). Overall the night was an enjoyable one, and Whitney's position as one of our style icons was certaintly solidified!

David Jones Spring/Summer Launch

The David Jones Spring/Summer Launch combined everything we love about the warmer weather; stepping out of the house without stockings, drinking flavoured mineral water without shivering and of course, wearing bright colours without looking like a girl in seasonal denial about life! With neon yellow on every finger and the likes of Miranda Kerr and Samantha Harris strutting down the catwalk, our anticipation for summer and the corresponding clothes and swimwear was undeniably heightened! As hard as it was capturing photos of the models (they truly have nailed the speedy walking thing), we managed to take a few in order to showcase some of the days amazingness, enjoy! xx

Back to School

And so another semester of uni begins...
What better way to get back into study than with a school themed photo shoot from the September issue of Marie Claire UK. Nostalgically sweet. Now excuse us as we retreat back into our Olympic hibernation.
