Lara McPherson at LMFF

The L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival (LMFF) Cultural program is well underway which means that I’ve been getting to see a lot more of my fashionable friends.

Lara McPherson is one such lady and with whom I feel lucky to get to collaborate with from time to time. Lara contributed an article to the Spirit of the Black Dress magazine. Spirit itself is a fabulous event that showcases the timelessness of a black dress that’s made with sustainable practice and lifestyle in mind.

What does a sustainable fashion writer wear to an event that features her work?
Lara wears a frock that she has borrowed from her Mum. Nice dress, Mum!

Lara is also hosting the Clothing Exchange event on Monday March 12. Fabulous folks getting together to swap clothes – I can’t wait!

Lara with Samantha Hardman of Bento ~ the lady responsible for the Ruby dress I'm wearing for LBD project!

Samantha Hardman of Bento (who made the dress that I’m using for the BusinessChic Little Black Dress Project) had an entry in the event and it was so wonderful to get to see it; more on that soon!

  1. Love that red dress! It’s beautiful, and Lara looks so fun in the gif at the end!

  2. I love the dress that she borrowed from her mom. Wish my mom had dresses like these in her closet!
