Behind-the-Scenes of a Fashion Week

Fashion week. No matter what city you may be in, it would be very hard to happen without the small army of people behind it. Today I feature only three types of the many roles involved. There’s the fashion-student-volunteer who manages the flow of fashion types to their seats; the client development manager who handles behind-the-scenes and then finally, the fashion bloggers… you might see me in this last group.

Note that while the overall look is minimalistic, there is a great eye for detail here. Well-groomed hair with a nice touch of scruffy at the end balances out the classic bold fuschia lipstick and that black top is NOT just any ol’ black top – it’s been made extra special by way of a very wonderful and intricate neckpiece- a great way of adding interest to any work ensemble. For the office I’d team this top with a black pencil skirt for a polished look with extra interest or man-style trouser for some style-juxtoposition. Love.  

The Client Development Manager

Favourite shops/brands/websites for work wear?  Zara and Reiss are my faves from London but now I am back in Melbourne I am getting a little obsessed with Witchery, Satch, Saba and Veronika Maine. And as for websites ASOS has a big variety and of course Net-a-Porter for investment pieces. 

Most hardworking accessory or item of clothing in your workrobe?  I have two: my Michael Kors boyfriend watch and my classic Burberry trench. 

Your inspirations for work attire/style? I admire Natalie Massenet (founder of Net-a-Porter) and her vision about what working women both want and need. So my daily updates from Net-A-Porter are my inspiration even though I can seldom afford any of it! 

The Bloggers 

Cheryl & Joyce

 I’m wearing some insane Shu Uemera false eyelashes, click here if you must see how so. She is Joyce of MEL:HOT OR NOT <- click link for Joyce’s review of the shows.

Check out Tullia’s work here.  I feel like I owe an explanation for my headwear. It was Designer Series Show Three and I was excited to have a night off street-style-snapping duties. This meant that I had the chance to go home and get out of my Internal Audit garb and into a fresh ensemble. I was inspired by a photo I’d taken the previous night of a punk milliner in her own classic creation and really wanted to wear a hat… I had this Statue of Liberty memorabilia handy. I didn’t wear it the whole time however because Joyce (refer above photo) got me into the media riser where I got to take some snaps; one of which is in this review I wrote for ~ some of the team.
