CULT DENIM // MAVI JEANS

Sunday, April 13, 2014

MAVI jeans, WITCHERY hat, H&M Australia knit, VINTAGE denim shirt

Let's just say I was glad to give the high heels and fashion week attire a rest this weekend. After an insanely busy week at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia it was nice to wander the city in a cosy knit and comfy jeans. These Mavi Mid Super Skinny jeans are my new go-to. Surprisingly, the label originates in Istanbul, Turkey and the jeans maintain a Mediterranean feel through their quality and detail.  Mavi, which means blue in Turkish, are known for their high quality, great fitting and fashion forward denim. Alongside my denim obsession, my love for the felt fedora has returned- the perfect way to elevate your weekend ensemble. 

Stay tuned for backstage snaps, MBFWA outfit posts and runway highlights this week on Catwalk of Words. I will also be heading back to Sydney on Wednesday to interview the world's leading hair expert Christophe Robin for L'Oreal Paris- is it Friday already?!

THE MAKEUP THAT ROCKED VAMFF

Wednesday, March 26, 2014















Just moments before the Harper's BAZAAR runway show at last week's Melbourne Fashion Festival I raced backstage to take a closer look at the ornate makeup looks for the evening. Under the direction of the L'Oreal Paris Makeup Director Elsa Morgan the backstage crew scattered gold pigment at the outer corner of of the eye for a delicate beauty finish. This beauty trend certainly complemented the sophisticated pieces from the likes of Alex Perry, Ellery, sass and bide, Arthur Galan AG and Yeojin Bae.

Saturday evening's National Graduate Showcase saw the models take to the runway with gold power brows. This trend elevated the showcased collections from the 12 hand-picked emerging designers.  The gold brow was initially created by the world-famous makeup artist Pat McGrath for the Dior spring '14 show. For the runway-ready look, Pat went to town backstage with glue and gold pigment, until the models' brows actually looked likes 24k jewellery. We've got a rad tutorial over at Get The Look to master this look at home- go forth! 

VAMFF Day 2 outfit also features above- Carla Zampatti suit jacket, Bianca Spender pants & Tony Biano shoes, Kookai clutch.

BACKSTAGE AT VAMFF 2014 DAY 1

Wednesday, March 19, 2014






NICOLA FINETTI dress, SPORTSGIRL clutch, TONY BIANCO shoes


Day 1 on ground at the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival. I was lucky enough to head backstage to watch the Hair Directors Brad Ngata and Caterina DiBiase and L'Oreal Paris Makeup Director Elsa Morgan work their magic. For the hair it was all about super sleek straight locks- the backstage hair team employed the L'Oreal Professionnel SteamPod to render a smooth and glossy finish. For the makeup it was all about the winged eye. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that even the expert makeup artists use the sticky tape method to master this technique.

MYER A/W 2014 RUNWAY

Wednesday, February 26, 2014


This was my outfit at last weeks MYER Autumn Winter 2014 Runway Show, provided by the lovely ladies at Cue Clothing. Also props to Oscar & Oscar Salons for taming my locks for the evening. xx


Fashion Highlights

The Myer AW14 Fashion Launch's creative vision was inspired by the city centric 'The Word on the Street' current advertising campaign, expressing the sexy sophistication that the city owns throughout the night. This was highlighted through the beanies covered in mesh veils that accompanied the garments on the runway. A key accessory for street style blogger Susie Bubble at Fashion Week.
AW14 will see an array of monochromatic prints on offer at Myer just perfect for the working girl. Sculptural hems, thigh-high splits and graphic colour-blocking are also having a moment.
