Wrap your peepers around these sneak peek glimpses into 15 Minutes (sans hair and makeup tweaking)…
For the last three days I’ve been go-go-go getting things ready for 15 Minutes, the Perth Fashion Festival event I’m styling. I kicked things off on Thursday with a spot of garment sourcing, hitting up Billie & Rose, Planet, Pigeonhole, Merge and Zara Bryson. I collected an array of beautiful garments, paying particular attention to Karen Walker because she’s my favourite designer, and Ellery because the amazing Kym Ellery is going to be a special front row guest at 15 Minutes! Some of the other wonderful labels I pulled include Friend Of Mine, Maurie & Eve, Carly Hunter, Poppy Lissiman, Extinct, Minty Meets Munt, Zanthus, Generics, Secret Squirrel, Limedrop and Mini Market.
Today I had the overwhelming task of fitting 20 models (each with 3 outfit changes) for the show and now I’m bloody exhausted! I’d never done a parade fitting this big before so it took a bit of adjusting to but thanks to my amazing assistant, Jess from Harlequin’s Party, I somehow survived the experience. Many thanks also to the PFF Style Envoy volunteers who lended a hand, and to the amazing models who took the chaos in their stride.
Prior to today Jess and I had organised all the outfits for the show but when models tried things on at the fitting we had quite a bit of switching and problem solving to do to make sure everyone looked their best. We managed to conquer the 60 looks and I’m really happy with the final results… Can’t wait for you to all see the show (and photos from it).
In competition news I’ll be drawing the winner of the double pass to 15 Minutes tomorrow annnnnnddd I’m also going to be giving away something else exciting… stay tuned.
