A Bright And Loud Coat To Count On

Writer Vivienne She at the VIP Viewing of TAFE Fashion Design 2022 Graduate Collections. Portrait by Sydney photographer Kent Johnson.

For one night only, the Applied Fashion Design and Technology at Ultimo TAFE, showcase the mid-year 2022 graduate collections on Wednesday, June 22nd. This would be my third time attending TAFE’s graduation exhibition thanks to Kent who is a real fashion insider. This year Kent’s invitations came from one of TAFE’s graduate designers – Gemma Pope. Kent was commissioned to shoot her range for her fashion label – Viena.

So, what to wear? It’s mid-winter (Sydney is so cold and wet right now!!!) and I wanted a vivid coloured coat to uplift the mood, and to keep me warm of course. Yes, I knew that much, and the rest just fell into places based on that thought. This velvet coat I found in my wardrobe… Well, the rich yellow and peony prints were definitely bright and loud… in a feminine and cheerful way! On top of that, its almost-cape-like design (with only one button fastening on the top), and oversized silhouette made it a perfect choice for the occasion! Quirky, chic, yet not so serious. After pairing it with a roll-neck camel jumper and a pair of dark-blue jeans… I was set to go!

For you who want to find out more about this fashion event, simply head to White Caviar Life’s event post. Special thanks to Kent who spotted a pattern-on-pattern photo opportunity, and said to me: ‘Go stand there, let the dress wrap you!’…
