The year that was 2011!

As we welcome 2012, thought I'd take a look back at the year that was 2011.  Personally, my highlight was Rosemount Australian Fashion Week, where this year I was invited as a blogger!  I was so fortunate to witness some of the most amazing shows..from Carla Zampatti to Rachel Gilbert to Alice McCall, Bianca Spender, Michael Lo Sordo, Shakuhachi, Bec and Bridge, Thurley, Karla Spetic, Lisa Maree, Kooey and Life with Bird.  It's something I will never forget!  As well as this, I finally completed my Bachelor Degree in Business!
The year in fashion started on a high note, where Rachel Zoe not only launched the Rachel Zoe Collection, but also gave birth to little baby Skyler!  We witnessed fairytale weddings from William and Kate to Kim and Kris..which was followed by the year's most shocking break up.  Marc Jacobs created a Louis Vuitton merry-go-round while Karl Lagerfeld created a Chanel underwater fantasy.  
Australia participated in their first Vogue's Fashion's Night In taking online shopping to a whole other level.  Australia was also welcomed to the Mercedes Benz family, where Mercedes Benz became the official sponsors of Australian Fashion Week.   For the first time we went behind the scenes of Australia's largest printing houses with ACP Magazines' 'Park Street' and Pacific Magazines' Marie Claire's 'Under the Cover'.  We finally welcomed Zara and Topshop to Australia's shores sending everyone into a fashion frenzy!  Olivia Palermo graced her first Australian magazine cover, Shop Til You Drop and launched her Olivia Palermo blog!  Taylor Swift continued to take over the world while Karlie Kloss became the newest Victoria's Secret Model dominating the runway!  'One Tree Hill' confirmed their final season with the return of Chad Michael Murray while Chuck Bass and Damon Salvatore finally became the 'good guys'!  Did I miss anything?
I can't wait to see what the world of fashion and celebrities have in store for 2012!
