Attending My First Fashion Shows - AW14

Hello hello! Last month a friend and I headed into the city one evening to watch two free fashion shows which showcased the styles for this year's autumn and winter. I was really keen to see what this season's and next season's trends were and most of all, I was really keen to attend a fashion show for the first time! I've always wanted to go to one and unfortunately I rarely hear about fashion shows/events happening in my city... but that might just be because I haven't done much searching around or joined any sort of fashion blogger group. Perhaps I should get involved, hey.

I don't really have much to share in this post besides photos (so close this page now! Joking, please stay) and some comments on the outfits but hopefully this will still be interesting, especially for any of you fellow fashion enthusiasts out there :)

One of my favourite shots from the night

The host for the shows, Lisa McAskill, dressed in Cameo The Label

The fashion show featured outfits created by stylists and each ensemble was created using items from one store, head to toe. This is a good way for the audience to see that pieces can be found and put together from just browsing a single store, both for women and men.

Here are a few of the brands/shops that were featured in this fashion show:

Cotton On


 Royal/indigo blue is definitely in!


Looks like the black on black and floral trends are here to stay

Jacqui E

Seeing lots of bold reds!

Ted Baker

Green is also a colour to look out for this season

Showies Boutique

I spot bold black and white prints, orchid tones and a bit of metallic

A particular dress from the boutique was a stand-out for me:

Not a dress I'd wear but I couldn't help but notice how elegant it looks

All of the models coming out and applauding at the end of each show

Excuse all of the head shots of the audience in the pics! For the first show I was sitting in the front row but then for the second one we had to move back a row because it was reserved for VIPs and I wasn't a VIP :( I don't even know how to become one and apparently there was an after party event, aw.

I have to admit, not all of the outfits that I saw on the night were ones I'd wear/like but that's what fashion is all about, right? Not everyone has the same taste and you can always mix and match items to suit your style! I loved seeing the new and unique designs and all sorts of colour combinations. Many of these outfits stood out to me in a good way, but I reckon it had more to do with the models themselves than what they were wearing 'cause they're all soooo tall and gorgeous. And I wish I had at least half of their confidence... and also their legs haha. Mad envy!

All attendees received this free magazine that was placed on each chair

I'll definitely be attending next seasons' free fashion shows and hopefully other fashion shows in the future like Victoria's Secret lol, or any others in my city, interstate/international ones. I'd be interested in hearing about any upcoming ones, even if I'm not able to attend them.

Questjen of the week:
Have you been to a fashion show before?

If so, which ones? If not, why not? Haha kidding - if not, would you want to go?

    1. That's awesome! I'd love to go to the VAMFF, sounds so exciting :)
      Thanks love xx

  2. Oooh what a great event :)
    Definitely true that fashion is to one's own taste. I mean, otherwise we'd all look exactly like each other :P

    1. Haha yep, always gotta embrace our differences!

  3. I survey the fashion crowd at events, catwalks, and on Instagram. Then I start exploring the market, and posts like these start up. This time, but this five dress styles that will make your winter sexy, stylish, and trendy! Fashion is a popular aesthetic in a certain time and context, especially in clothing and you truly have a good taste of fashion and style selection. I’m a jewelry lover and I’ll definitely try this look with my Nipple Rings Gold. Thanks for sharing this post.
