Anything's possible at Rosemount Australian Fashion Week!

Can you believe it's less than a week till Rosemount Australian Fashion Week begins?!  I am so excited!  And what's in store for this year's event?.... Well to open the week, the one and only Zimmermann will showcase their collection at an off site location in North Sydney.  Designers, Kirrily Johnston, Camilla and Marc, Lisa HoEllery, Therese Rawsthorne and returners to this year's event, Josh Goot and Toni Maticevski will all join Zimmermann with off site shows across Sydney.  This year Alex Perry has opted for something a little more low key (compared to last year) and has opted for an on site event.  Dion Lee will once again be holding his show at the Opera House.  I worked at his event last year, so I cannot wait to see what he has in store this year!  Lisa Maree will feature her very first individual show.  Camilla Frank, Ksubi, Jayson Brunsdon and Nicola Finetti have opted out of this year's event, whilst, Carla Zampatti, Thurley and Life with Bird are holding their shows before Rosemount begins.  Bowie will be closing the event, whilst everyone wants a seat at one of Alexa Chung's favourite designers Lover.  But wait.. Romance was Born you ask?  When I saw them not on the schedule, I freaked out!  But never fear Romance was Born will 'unofficially' be opening fashion week the day before the event begins.  I wonder what they have in store this time!
And as for fashion's elite?.. Well ASOS, Net-a-porter.com, and Shopbop.com will all be in attendance as well as everyone's favourite bloggers, Susie from Style Bubble and Tommy Ton are returning.  But that's not all, Imran Amed from Business of Fashion will be attending and Phil Oh from Street Peeper is apparently taking pictures on the street, for Harper's Bazaar Australia!  Have I missed anything?... Probably that for the first time I will be heading to fashion week to blog the shows, that will be featured right here on The Lilac Mannequin!  I will be blogging as much as I can throughout the week, but for information straight off the runway, be sure to join The Lilac Mannequin on Facebook or Twitter!
I've been invited to quite a few shows both before and during fashion week, and I cannot wait!  It seems as though this year's video clip invites are popular.  So here's a sneak peek at one of the shows I'll be attending!
