Gorman A15 Moth and Moon

I was lucky enough to be invited to my all time favourite designer Gorman's A15 runway show for their Moth & Moon collection. The label was also celebrating 16 years, a huge achievement in the volatile world of fashion. Luckily Gorman are going from strength to strength with each new collection, always outdoing themselves design wise. To say I was excited to get the invitation to this in the mail is an understatement as I'm pretty sure you're all aware of just how much I do love this label. Well they certainly did not disappoint, every little detail of the night was amazing which you'll see in a moment but of course the clothes themselves were the absolute highlight as you can see above, photo by Lucas Dawson Photography.

The stunning location for the evening was the Conservatory in the Fitzroy Gardens which made the perfect backdrop for Gorman's trademark colourful collection.

Each invited guest received an exclusive fern print cushion, specially made for the event and embroidered on the reverse side with 'Gorman, Fitzroy Gardens a'15' as well as a delicious smelling candle and the beautifully shot Autumn look book which was photographed in Japan.

I told you every detail was perfect.

I couldn't resist taking some outfit photos pre-show in the space. I've actually shot an outfit here before but every time you visit the conservatory there are new flowers, arrangements and colours to discover.

I decided to not wear a full head to toe Gorman outfit as I guessed that's what most people would be doing (and I was right) so I went with my new Karen Walker bloom sweater dress. I was just wondering through Myer when I spotted it and I knew it had to be mine, that pale blue and white print is just to die for. Of course I still wanted to have some Gorman in my outfit so I wore my favourite Gorman wood block platform heels that I bought when they were first released but are heavily discounted now so get on that guys as they're the best shoes to wear and look so cute, honestly! The rest of my look comprised of my fave Lady Petrova floral crown, my Ne-Net polar bear/bunny rabbit bag and my trusty Tsumori Chisato sunglasses. Oh and my DIY white pom pom earrings I made using bits and pieces I bought at a Japanese jewellery supplies shop.

Where I was seated was really difficult for getting any front facing photos of the models because of shadows so all further runway photos are by Lucas Dawson Photography.

This gold jumpsuit was a real crowd pleaser but is unfortunately a runway only piece and not going into production. Talking to Lisa Gorman after the show she said everyone had mentioned it to her and of course everyone wants the runway only piece but her and Emily Ward the runway stylist had created the piece that day using other pieces and fabric from the collection earlier that day. Hopefully it does get made, if not for this season perhaps the next because I can totally see my bff Lauren rocking this.

Gorman's knits are the best and this is no exception.

Hello pink coat you were made for me.

I'm going to try both these pieces on as soon as they land in store. The gold foil pleated skirt is just a stand out piece I think I need in my wardrobe.

This seasons fern print as seen on the cushions earlier.

Gorman are known for their prints and I must say this is one of their best ever designs. Another item for the growing wish list.

The title Moth & Moon print is another standout print by Gorman. Those over the knee socks better be going into production because I need them!

I saw this baby pink cropped leather jacket in store the other day and didn't have time to try it on but you can be sure that I will be trying it on as soon as possible and hopefully purchasing it too - it's so perfect for me. I just love this whole look.

Yep guess what, I love this too. That puffa jacket and bag please be mine.

That circle bag - oh my! The dress - be still my beating heart.

What a fabulous collection. You can see the full album of runway photos on the Gorman facebook page. Thank you to Gorman and the team for having me, it was a wonderful night full of beautiful clothes and scenery, one that I will never forget.
