Melbourne Spring Fashion Week 2014 ~ Runway 1

After a long absence from the fashion scene it was nice to spend a bit of time with friends and fabulous designers in this gorgeous city of ours! Gotta love Melbourne in Spring.

The designers on Runway 1 at Melbourne Town hall tonight were -
JASONGRECH, Aurelio Costarella, Michael Lo Sordo, Carla Zampatti, Dom Bagnato, Gwendolynne, Nicolangela, Anaessia.

Of course every fashion show should start off with pre show cocktails, so we headed to the newly opened Pole Pole which used to be Tony Star's kitten club!  It's been years and I mean (10 Years) or more since I've been in this space, but it's great, open and fresh.  The eggplant chips and pork cigars were yum, well worth a look in for city drinks!

Curvy Girl Fabtastic Fashion

Sometimes when I look at curvy girl fashion I think it can fall short of being sexy, trendy and flattering. Recently I found a label that nailed it for us curvy girls. Lala Belle The Label is sophisticated, sexy and I love some of their current looks.  Think lace, mesh, laser cut and leather biker pants, then vamp them up with leopard print tops and shoes and you're talking my kind of language.

My favorite pieces are of course the leopard print tee and dress, along with the leather biker pants. Great for different shapes and with the right slip underneath these sheer dresses can be worn for work or play.

Check them out here!

Designer Spotlight - Sophia Webster The New Shoe Queen

She's the new sweetheart of the shoe world and with good reason.  Sophia Webster is to shoes, what Willy Wonker is to chocolate.  She's the dreamer, the creator the imagination that takes quirky and delicious shoes and she makes them a reality.

Winner of a British Fashion Award in 2013, Sophia Webster has risen to stardom fairly quickly with her dynamic designs, and with an entourage of celebs lining up to wear her gear it not surprising how successful her label is.

Her designs are like something out a comic book with vivid and pastel colours, interesting heels, beautiful stripes and spots, as well as flowers and jewels.  These aren't for the faint hearted as they outprice Jimmy Choo, which is no small 'feet'! {haha}  But these babies are for the faint hearted; topping many other high end brand, Webster shoes cost a cool 300-500+ pounds!  That's around $1000 Aussie dollars.   But you know I do love window shopping as well.

She also has a fabulous range of original and quirky bags. If you follow me on Facebook you may have seen a recent post of me lusting after the 'Say my Name' clutch below.  

The moral of the story, even if you can't afford or wouldn't spend your hard earned cash on these gorgeous pieces, is to get inspiration out her designs.  Look at the shapes, colour and patterns and look how you can put your look together with similar imagination. 

Fashion is all about fun and expression, so don't be shy to mix it up a little!
