Mercedes Benz Fashion Week 2019: Ten Pieces

During Australian Fashion Week, I attend Fashion Shows at some of the most unique and amazing locations in Sydney.  Throughout the years, I've attended shows at the Opera House, Sydney University, the Woollahra Post Office, Australia Square, The Australian Technology Park and the Overseas Passenger Terminal.  I've seen dogs, snakes and even surfboards come down the runway.  Except, there's one show I've always wanted to attend and this year, I was invited!  Over the past five years, Ten Pieces have showcased their collection at one of Sydney's most exquisite locations, Bondi Icebergs.  This year, Ten Pieces transformed the Bondi Icebergs' pool into a runway and showcased their Resort 20 collection.  Arriving to Bondi Beach on a sunny Autumn morning, you couldn't ask for anything for magical!  Guest were treated to drinks and monogramed pieces by The Daily Edited. 
Model's strutted the empty icebergs pool in one of the most epic shows I've ever seen.  The Resort 20 collection 'Cosmic Runner' draws inspiration from the late 70's Italian disco culture.  A mixture of contemporary outfitting with an urban sport look, embracing a monochrome colour palette with touches of red, white and blue.  This season also introduced denim.

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week 2019: We are Kindred

I recently attended the We are Kindred show during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia 2019.  The Resort 2020 collection 'Boheme Heart', embraced "a little bit bohemian and a little bit party".  A carefree, bohemian, effortless, and feminine collection, including the perfect pieces for your spring/summer wardrobe. The collection includes flowy long dresses, flare pants, mini shorts and jumpsuits/playsuits, off the shoulder silhouettes, plunging necklines and frills.  A breathtaking colour palette of pastel blue, yellow, white and pink... with a mixture of prints, metallic and texture.  
The show itself opened with Victoria's Secret model Alannah Walton.. yes that was a highlight of my week!

Zoella x Colourpop Collaboration

Zoe Sugg is my favourite YouTuber, so I was excited to hear about her collaboration with Colourpop.  Zoella x Colourpop, embraces the 70s, and vibes the ultimate brunch date.  I can't get enough of the collection...From the super cute packaging, to the pressed powder eyeshadow palette I never knew I needed, and how can I forget my new favourite make up bag!
The pressed powder 'Brunch Date' eyeshadow palette is definitely the stand out of the collection.  It's a mixture of warm and cool tones, and both matte and shimmers.  It's also an extremely wearable palette with tones of brown, copper, pink, champagne and even a pop of blue.
The collection also includes 3 Ultra Matte lips, 2 Supernova shadows, a pressed powder highlighter, pressed powder blush and 2 Crème Gel liners.

Kaia Gerber for Jimmy Choo S/S 2019 collection

Kaia Gerber has become one of favourites, therefore, I was excited to see her as the new face of Jimmy Choo's Spring/Summer 2019 campaign.  I love nothing more than a pair of Jimmy Choos, so I thought I'd share my picks for the season!
