Fashion Weekend Sydney 2010 Wrap-Up

Well Fashion Weekend Sydney 2010 has been and gone, and what an event it was! A few of the BD team members attended, and had a great time.  

With hundreds of designer labels on display, including Billion Dollar Babes, Nicola Finetti, Otto Mode, Hussy, Samantha Wills, Skin & Threads, and Peep Toe, girls were able to grab their statement pieces without the statement price tag.

There was an Essie nail bar where girls could get a mani and their favourite Essie nail colour for $20 - this proved to be a very popular feature of the weekend! Just as popular was the Toni & Guy Style Bar, where the talented stylists from Toni & Guy refreshed and revamped punters with their award-winning blow dry for $10.

The Fashion Weekend Catwalk presented an exclusive and unique view of this season’s hottest collections, with group shows taking place each hour, right across the weekend. Designers showcasing their latest looks for this season included Camilla, This is Genevieve, Life with Bird,, Hussy, Little Joe by Gail Elliot, Muccia, Lucette, Peep Toe, Shakahachi, and Laurence Pasquier.

Yet another highlight of the fashionable four-day event was the Shop Til You Drop Fashion Clinic, which presented make-up masterclasses, styling competitions, interviews with designers, and styling tutorials that showed girls how to implement the clothing, hair and make-up trends from the catwalks into their everyday stylefiles. Fashionistas were also able to meet the Shop team, including editor Justine Cullen, fashion director Rebecca Caratti and beauty and lifestyle director Amy Starr. 

Fashion Weekend Sydney 2010 proved to be a fabulous event, and with the greats of the Australian fashion industry all under one roof, there truly was no better way to re-vamp your wardrobe without leaving a designer-shaped hole in your bank balance then at Fashion Weekend Sydney!

Have a lovely day!… Anna
