MBFWA Trends Translated To Plus – Part One

bamitsjoanne

All this week designers are showcasing their collections at #MBFWA and I'll be following the action from home this year. I couldn't miss it completely so I'll be live streaming the shows and stalking instagram for all the best shots. I understand a lot of Aussie Curve women aren't attracted to fashion week as we're undoubtably excluded as far as actually being able to buy and wear pieces but I personally find the whole experience thrilling. I also wanted to show you how I see trends on the ... [ Discover More ]

What to wear to Curvy Couture Roadshow

danimezza curvy couture roadshow

It's only a week away and I'm beginning to get nervous. My suitcase is lying on on the floor of my studio mocking me, so far it only has a Glomesh purse and my good pair of thongs in it... this isn't going as well as I'd hoped. The most stressful trip I've ever packed for was New York in 2012 for Full Figured Fashion Week. I'd never travelled internationally before and I still hadn't discovered my personal style, I was still in the experimentation phase which basically means PACK ALL THE ... [ Discover More ]

Front Row Family

On Monday Aidan and I were flown down to Melbourne for the day to attend the Kmart Spring/Summer Fashion Launch. It was very exciting for Aidan who was pumped about it for days, I on the other hand was worried about the logistics and possible public tantrums from over tiredness. I needn't have worried because he was an absolute superstar the whole trip, up and out of his bed at 4am and back in it by 9:30pm. By Kmart We arrived just as everyone was finding seats for the show. The event was ... [ Discover More ]

TS14+ MSFW Moments

This post was brought to you by TS14+ I've been a little bit all over the joint the past few months, most recently on the Gold Coast but just prior to that I was jetting off to Melbourne Spring Fashion Week to see TS14+ on the runway. I've spoken about my relationship with TS14+, the make up looks and a now I want to give you a bit of insight into my trip. I arrived in Melbourne around midday the day before the show and the weather was absolutely beautiful, in all my trips it has never ... [ Discover More ]

TS14+ Runway Makeup

TS14 RUNWAY MAKEUP-1

This post was brought to you by TS14+ If you're reading this blog you obviously have some sort of vague interest in make up and beauty. I'm not trained in an official capacity to teach you but I have had the privilege to learn from a few masters in my time and it would be wrong of me not to pass along what I've learnt which I try to do in my videos. Yes, there is even a how-to below to show you how you can recreate the make up look from the TS14+ runway last week. I hope you enjoy the behind ... [ Discover More ]

TS14+ Runway Looks

ts14

This post is brought to you by TS14+ Attending runway shows is always a little bit exciting. There is a thrill in the air as people rush about backstage, the crowd filters in to their seats and the photographers stand their ground in the media pit. Usually I'd be in there with them but this year as the #TS14PlusInsider I sat front row and it was brilliant, better still it was free to attend so you could have too. The TS14+ runway shows were held around lunchtime to a crowded house within ... [ Discover More ]

TS14+ MSFW RUNWAY

TS14_MSFW-32

This post is photo heavy so brace yourselves, it's all about the runway show I attended during Melbourne Spring Fashion Week 2012 for TS14+. I still feel so privileged and lucky to have gone and covered the event. It's hard to describe the energy of a runway show, I'm totally addicted to the drama of it all. I wasn't the only lucky one either, the free event had gift bags for the first fifty people at each show (they had a 5:30pm and a 6:30pm showing) and they were really good. A little ...

TS14_MSFW-10

I love going backstage, it's often my favourite thing about a runway show. Everyone is rushing around, I'm trying my best to stay out of the way and catch those moments of clarity in between. It's the only time you're really allowed to move, to document and see the candid human energy behind a show. Whilst the show was taking place in the tent, hair and make up was being sorted just across the road in Town Hall. It really did feel like a "hive" of activity, especially with the honeycomb ...

Perfect Hydre Curls

day1_mbfwa_danimezza-3

This was my first official runway show for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia and it couldn't have gotten off to a better start, the Camilla "Gypset" Runway Show was sensational. So much colour, movement, ethnic exploration and expression... I fell for each and every piece. I was right up the back in the nose bleed section and I only found somewhere to stand moments before the models came out and started strutting their stuff but I was lucky, some didn't even make it in the doors! I was ... [ Discover More ]

 This time last week I was heading into the city to attend the MYER Big is Beautiful runway show at Town Hall, the opening show for Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival 2011. I was really excited to be invited, it wasn't until I was ushered to my spot that I realised I was in prime seats with designers and press, yep I sat behind Damien and even gave him my card but that's a story for another time. I was there to be a part of a moment and I can honestly say I enjoyed every bit of it.  The BIB show ... [ Discover More ]

 Last night I headed to a much anticipated fashion launch and runway show by the very talented Gisela Ramirez held at the Tap Gallery in Darlinghurst, Sydney. I'd made plans to go along to the show with a few of my fashionable blogging friends...  Hayley from Fashion Hayley & Caitlin from Closet Confessions  Hayley was nice enough to let me park my car at her place and get changed before the show.  Caitlin came from Uni, she was wearing a feather skirt during the lecture... ...
