Spring Fashion Week Day 2: Kaleidoscope
This is what I wore last night to the Spring Fashion Week Kaleidoscope parade at the Town Hall.
Dress: Thrifted at Savers
Belt: Thrifted at Camberwell Market
Necklace: I made it
Earrings: I bought them at Shag years and years ago but I lost them at some point last night, major oops but they are clip ons so I guess it was bound to happen. Shag is an awesome vintage store in Melbourne by the way.
Shoes: Harajuku, Tokyo
Cobalt blue Nail Polish: A $2 shop.
I had the BEST night ever.
Kaleidoscope was presented by Marie Claire Magazine and it featured one of my favourite designers, Gorman. I was in the photographers pit taking photos for Melbourne Street Fashion.com so I didn't get to enjoy the parade because I was actually working (photos of the show will be up there ASAP) but I did get to drink free champagne in the VIP bar with some of my favourite people.
Here they are, Imelda Matt and Lady Melbourne. Don't they make a cute couple, lol?
I look angry here, like always, but really I was so happy. Alastair from Melbourne Street Fashion took the photos for us, thanks Al.
Matt was front row in the VIP section.
After the show we headed down to the GPO for the FAT party which was amazing. I bumped into loads of old friends which was fun.
I went to art school with Ryan, he is friends with Lady Melbourne, small world isn't it? Beside him is this years face of Spring Fashion Week, Sally Graham. Sally was so nice and sweet, we walked with her to the official after party at Seamstress and guess what people, even models hate high heels and have to change into ballet flats!!!
Matt and Mark? (or is it Mike?) proudly showing off their man bags. Love the leather gloves.
You may remember my post about Reiss Radvanyi and how I absolutely love his dresses. Well it turns out he actually read my post!!! He came up to me and said "Fashion Hayley?" so I was like "yeah????" and he told me who he was and that he reads my blog and I basically died. I was very drunk by this stage (Matt took a bottle of wine from the GPO party and we smuggled it into the After Party and I basically drank the whole bottle) so I am sure I embarrassed myself a great deal, but really this was so exciting for me. I wonder who else reads my blog? Karl Lagerfield? Lol. But as I said I love Reiss's dresses (there are some new ones at FAT at GPO that I have my eye on, maybe soon I will finally buy one because I start my new job next week) and I can't believe he reads my blog. Plus he is cute don't you think? I look like a total geek, sometimes I hate my glasses even if they are "cool".
After all this I caught up with Tony at the Carlton Club and got even more drunk, bumped into loads of old friends and got recognised as Fashion Hayley and also for being on Lookbook.nu so I guess I am famous on the internet now, Yay. I somehow ended up going home in a taxi with 2 crazy gay guys at 4am. It was a crazy fun night, the best Spring Fashion Week ever and I still have 2 more shows to go to.
