Hello lovely long standing followers, I miss you. I miss your posts (no really, I can identify 90% of your blogs and potentially our conversations!/an iconic outfit/a great purchase etc) I cannot wait to share my future adventures with you as I will be using this blog to document my travels in Europe beginning in August! I have been accepted in Gothenburg university in Sweden to continue my design degree. This means the WORLD to me and I cannot wait to share my experiences!

The last day of Fashion week was a quiet day indeed, with only a small bunch of designers on the schedule to present their collections, giving the ever-so-hard-done-by fashion elite a break.
Spectators were treated to an edgy Staple collection, which I thought looked very Scandinavian with the absence of fitted designs. I am of course down with this.
I was impressed with The New Generation collections, finding that Faddoul's feminine silhouettes and The Letter Q's range quite covetable. They both have also studied at the prestigious Central Saint Martins. Not bad for two average Sydney Gals.
Well this concludes my MBFWA posts. I have spent the past week carefully gathering my favourite looks. If you would like to see all the designers click HERE to see some of the best Australia has to offer.

I have to admit, I had been anticipating one show the most out of all the designers at this year's MBFWA. Yes, it was Emma Mulholland. This year was her first full feature solo runway show. I couldn't be any happier for the Sydney-sider who only graduated from TAFE a handful of years ago and is already a household name (in crazy fashion loving houses of course). I loved the colours, the 80s spring break vibe, the goofy 80s visor glasses, the smooth polar bear that reminded me of an esky company somehow? Am I somehow on the right track or am I batshit crazy?
I loved the wild grid squiggle print which heavily reminded me of tacky early 90s videos (Art attack anyone?) The hair, makeup and perspex jewellery will most likely be all the rage, come summer time. I cannot wait! but alas I plan + hope to be in Europe during the Australian summer *insert sad face here*
And where the HELL did Haryono Setiadi pop up from?! I see so much Dion Lee in his work. It also appears that writer for The Vine MITCHELLOAKLEYSMITH feels similarly, claiming Haryono Setiadi is certainly 'one to watch', with a mixed review of positives and negatives on the collection.
As you can tell, I very much enjoyed the Shakuhachi collection this year. I have felt slightly uninspired or unmoved by their previous collections for some time now. The colour palette is cute and girly, but still accommodates the market and want for minimalistic, metallic and iridescent attire (YES).
