It's true. I have the after Fashion Week Blues. Not only has the week that was passed. The weather is shocking here in Sydney and it's now stopping me from shooting my up and coming collaborations!! You've probably seen it on the news? We had storms last week and then a break for about two days. Then yesterday the CBD flooded again AND we had hail. Not just a little bit I might add. We could build icemen and lie in the hailstones and make ice angels!! It looked like snow! Now I love the winter. However, this weather is a bit much!!
Let's look back at one of my outfits that I wore during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. I am not one of the lucky few who get chauffeured around in a Mercedes Fashion Week Fleet car. So I wear fashionable and comfortable clothes that mean that I can get between shows fast. Plus being on your feet all day also means I say no to heels. Sure you see street style that includes the select few in their heels. The reality for most people who go to Fashion Week is that we are there to work. To make meaningful connections, get ideas for clients and see some amazing Australian Fashion. Therefore most of my outfits were practical.
You can see below I wore my 3.1 Phillip Lim backpack so I could keep my hands free. You need a great pair of sunglasses and of course some comfortable sneakers. I always try to wear Australian labels to Sydney Fashion Week - so my blue skirt is Scanlan Theodore. Plus my UNIQLO Cashmere jumper breathes and is light weight. Love a good basic.
