FashBizChics @ Paris '99

Last Wednesday, I attended the FashBizChic's event at Paris '99. FashBizChic's creator is stylist and wardrobe consultant, Sally MacKinnon of Styled by Sally. FashBizChics is a "networking collective of dynamic Melbourne women working in the field of fashion."1 Yahav Ron, owner of Paris '99, hosted this event in his studio, located in Elwood.

Tempted by flowing champagne and scrumptious nibbles, I was surrounded by fashionistas chatting away about various fashion related topics. It was really wonderful to get the opportunity to talk about everything and anything related to fashion and style. 

Yahav led us on a guided tour of his studio to peruse his marvellous range of high-end designer pre-loved & new garments, some of which he has designed himself. With price tags of up to 80%-90% off the original price, dreams of owning a high-end designer garment can soon become a reality. I began to feel giddy with excitement, as I spotted many items I could see working for me in my existing wardrobe.

With high-end labels such as Dior, YSL, Lanvin, Balenciaga and Chloe, amongst many, many more, what's not to love? Yahav has an amazing eye for detail. I was very impressed!

So, if you're looking for a high-end designer item for your next special event, or to just simply add to your existing wardrobe, without the heavy price tags, contact Yahav to arrange an appointment. You will be assured you will receive 'impeccable service in a personal and private setting'2. I'm really looking forward to my next visit!

I hope you have all had a great start to the week! It's absolutely freezing here in Melbourne, so I'm having to rug up in my Winter woollies already!

Yours in style,

French nautical

Ilove stripes, especially navy & white. It's very Parisian chic! My favourite Breton striped cashmere/silk blend sweater has been the absolute best investment of all time. 

There are trends that come and go and then there are classics. I tend to steer towards the classics. The striped boatneck sweater is yet another timeless piece which should live in everyone's closet.

I stumbled across some old pics of movie starlets wearing nautical stripes, such as my favourite style icon, Audrey Hepburn. Years have passed and the striped sweater still looks as fabulous as it did back in its heyday.

This sweater I'm wearing is by Australian label Bezoar. They seem to have fallen off the radar at present, so I hope that in the future I can purchase another one like this! 

This is my go-to outfit for comfort and style when I need to run some errands. What's yours?
Hoping that your weekend was fabulous and your week is even better!
Yours in style

Top 5: Miu Miu Edit S/S '19

Another live stream runway show I had the pleasure of viewing was the Miu Miu Spring/Summer '19 show live from Paris Fashion Week. A highlight included looks from the red carpet as worn by famous models, actresses and digital influences, such as Australia's very own Margaret Zhang. Another highlight included seeing the image projection of models onto the new Miu Miu logo. Although, seemingly "out there", it was a very interesting and exciting way to begin the show. 

I loved the bow details as seen on blouses, headbands, eyewear and shoes. Tailored blazers and coats from an array of luxe fabrics were seen in the majority of looks from the collection. 

The new Spring/Summer '19 Miu Miu collecion captures the very essence of the brand: feminine, chic and girly. Lots of sparkles, glitter and crystals featured in the new collection, an element that has become Miu Miu's signature. I couldn't help but capture tiny hints reminiscent of the 1920s "Flapper Girl&…

V & A "Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion Exhibition"

I am thrilled to announce that, thanks to London's Victoria and Albert Museum, a fabulous exhibition, "Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion" is coming to the Bendigo Arts Gallery this Winter. The exhibition is timely, as this year marks the centenary of the first Balenciaga fashion house. 

The exhibition will showcase the legacy of the house designer, Cristobel Balenciaga and will include his designs, which revolutionised what we know today as contemporary fashion. 

"Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion" opens August 17 until November 10, 2019 at Bendigo Arts Gallery, 42 View Street, Bendigo. 

Yours in style,
