On day five of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia (MBFWA), the temperature rose up from the recent average of 21C to 27C. Which means, my previously prepared and dry cleaned outfit would be too warm to wear that day.
A white shirt and polka dot culottes became my last minute choice; and I had to take my culottes to my dry cleaner for a quick steam so they would be ready to wear.
Now, talking about my outfit of the day (OOTD) in such a way would have been looked down upon and described as ‘shallow’ by an ex boy friend of mine from years ago…
So I was happy to be on my way to Carriageworks and the MBFWA – to join other fashion lovers who talk like this; think like this and who, like me, believe that the comeback of flared trousers is ground breaking news!
The occasion, the runway show of Raffles International Showcase which did not disappoint. Their emerging designs made me feel that my simple white shirt was a rather conservative choice. After the show, my friend Kent and I strolled around indulging in the fashion week atmosphere, bumping into and chatting with a few fashion friends.
By day five of MBFWA, I’d seen many, many images of street style fashion shots taken at Carriageworks. It used to be the home of the Sydney Rail Workshops, the industrial heritage warehousing and the rail way tracks have made Carriageworks an unique backdrop for fashionistas to showcase their OOTD.
So, how about a cliché Carriageworks OOTD shot?
Why not?! After all, fashion is about having fun and I’d love to capture this fun moment!
