MBFWA | From the Blogger’s mouth

The Mercedes Benz Fashion Week has come to end, and as expected, our social media platforms are flooded with endless reviews, continuously updated lust lists and an abundance of street style shots in front of Carriageworks iconic sandstone walls. From an outsiders view, this all looks glamorous and fun and hardly painful, but all those involved will tell a slightly different story.

We caught up with a few of our favourite bloggers, to find out what they thought about Fashion Week and how they managed to make it out alive! For anyone looking to join in on all the fun next year – take note.

WHAT WERE YOUR FAVOURITE SHOWS?

Ooh, there’s been so many! I’d have to say Ginger and Smart, Bec and Bridge and I was really surprised by Jennifer Kate! She had some really cool leather pieces.

WHAT HAVE BEEN YOUR FAVOURITE TRENDS?

70’s definitely! Bangs and flares, i’m really keen on those now even though I swore i’d never wear them again back in 2007.

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR LIFESAVER THROUGHOUT THE WEEK?

I would have to say my battery pack as I can only really get about 5 hours of usage out of my phone with all the instagramming! I’ve loved being able to wear sneakers instead of heels too, it’s all about the comfort!

WHAT WERE YOUR FAVOURITE SHOWS?

My favourite was the Christopher Esber presentation, that was phenomenal!

WHAT HAVE BEEN YOUR FAVOURITE TRENDS?

I really loved all the bell sleeves at Ellery! You can see a lot of people wearing it around Fashion Week too which is great.

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR LIFESAVER THROUGHOUT THE WEEK?

I would have to say my pressed juices! They’ve been phenomenal, my absolute saviour throughout such a hectic week.

WHAT WERE YOUR FAVOURITE SHOWS?

Definitely Bec and Bridge!

WHAT WERE YOUR FAVOURITE TRENDS?

Flares! They’re having a huge moment in every part of the outfit, not just in the pants but the sleeves as well. It’s kind of bohemian whilst sticking to the minimalist vibe that we all love. I’m also loving the colour palette that i’m seeing throughout all of the shows, lots of navy and burnt orange!

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR LIFESAVER THROUGHOUT THE WEEK?

Sneakers! I’ve also had a healthy supply of pressed juices, it’s a lifesaver! Liquid lunch is perfect for when you’re running around between shows and don’t actually have that much time to eat.
