Going backstage to celebrate Alice’s ten years in the business was hands down my favourite experience from fashion week.
 
From the moment I received this delightful confetti situation I found myself imagining what would be in store for the Alice McCall girl this spring/summer. No doubt the collection would showcase Alice’s fantastic eye for prints and colour that are beautifully balanced by wearable silhouettes. Surpassing my imagination ten fold Alice took me on a journey from start to
finish that was tied in beautifully by the jumbled dreams installation.
 
The amazing energy backstage was palpable and fitting for a such a fun collection featuring futuristic prints, glitter shorts, statement clutches and delightful pastels. Not to mention some serious seventies beauty (sparkly waves for days) that I’m sure would have Lux Lisbon’s stamp of approval. A true celebration of Alice’s fun, modern yet wearable aesthetic.

Striped Sundays – Reverie

Considering my lifelong love of pyjamas (particularly on this rainy weekend) I have a serious lack of wide-legged pants in my wardrobe. As soon as I came across these dreamy striped pants by Pink Stitch I knew that was all going to change.
Comfortable yet effortlessly chic can be a difficult combination to come by. Not to mention the perfect piece for a full day of shows at fashion week. Did I mention they have pockets?! Winning.
 
On a fashion week note I kicked off my coverage last night with Aje’s dreamy backstage situation. More MBFWA goodness to follow!

It’s Aje In The Details

There is nothing quite like a glimpse behind the scenes to appreciate the numerous factors that come into play in order to

articulate a designer’s vision. Much like my practice approach as an Occupational Therapist showcasing a designer’s collection is very much a holistic process, involving input from a diverse team. Not to mention the incredible level of detail that goes into each piece, hair and makeup, styling and creative direction that can often get lost during a seemingly light speed runway viewing.
 
When it comes to Aje it’s all about the details. Known for their amazing flair with textures this collection did not disappoint. Striking just the right balance with floaty fabrics, flattering silhouettes, raw organic edges and amazing beading, sequins and floral embroidery. Combined with the odd dreamy leather injection that added another layer to the incredibly tactile friendly collection. Often the presence of such details can project a more mature vibe yet Edwina and Adrian have mastered the urban cool meets glamorous girl with their pieces. Oh and don’t get me started on the model’s dreamy, relaxed waves.
