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!
