Guess who I had dinner with tonight? Oren Nuri from Project Runway Australia!!!
It was so crazy. I was at this fashion event at the uber hip boutique Alice Euphemia for the launch of Romance was Born's Spring/Summer 09 collection taking photos for Melbourne Street Fashion.com. I love Romance was Born, they totally remind me of Mercibeaucoup my favourite Japanese label. Well I took a photo of Anna Plunkett who is the designer for the label, the other designer Luke Sales was also there but our other photographer took a photo of him. Anyway the party was amazing, I didn't think the night could get any better, but it did of course! Walking to dinner after the opening me and my sister stopped into EB Games to play some playstation games (I have no idea why we did that btw, I hate games) anyway from the corner of my eye I see Oren walk past, so I'm like to my sister "Oh my god that guy from Project Runway just walked past" and she was like "Huh, but I just killed that monster...but Oh my god lets go" so we ran after him and stopped him at the traffic lights. My sister got there 1st so she goes "Hey are you from project runway?" and he is like "yeah...why" so my sister tells him that I work for Melbourne Street Fashion.com and can she take your photo. He is so nice about it. Anyway we got to talking and it seems that he is down from Sydney and trying to find some good cheap Asian food in the city, so seeing as that's where we are heading we take him there. Turns out even though the show was filmed in Melbourne he never got the chance to explore the city before because they were in lock down during the shoot. Anyway we end up hanging out for a while and he tells us all the secret going ons of the show, which sorry, are secret, but woah there is so much you don't know from just watching. It was so much fun and hopefully we will see him again, he wants me to meet Lui. Yay! I love Lui.

This was my 2nd Project Runway experience in as many days by the way. Yesterday I had a tour of the Whitehouse Institute of Design (where they film the show and where I will be studying next year hopefully) and I got to see the Project Runway sewing room, Tresume Hair Salon, Loreal Make up room and the Myer Accessories wall. So exciting. I love the facilities at the campus, it is amazing. I'm not just excited because of the Project Runway thing either, I have wanted to go to this Uni for a long time but it only just became non full fee paying so I can finally afford to be able to go. Yay.
