Asian Beauty

Being half Asian myself it is always nice to see the beauty industry diversifying (although this particular spread is from Vogue China). 

To begin with I already have a bit of a crush on Liu Wen but this shoot makes me long for the sun on my face again!

Mother & Father

We had the pleasure of visiting the Mother & Father PR showroom earlier this week and it was honestly one of our favourite showings so far.

Here is a little sneak peek of what we saw, more to come over at BWA soon.

Pip and Tash xx


Some amazing images from London based photographer Jan Masny, in keeping with my lifelong love of dance and the fashion worlds current obsession with ballet....

goot head to toe

Josh Goot is probably one of my all time fave Australian designers, his cuts and aesthetic just work perfectly with  my style (I mean, whos style doesn't work with Goot??).

This outfit was on Day 4 of RAFW and is head to toe Josh Goot, standard A Wang bag, Prada sunglasses and Rubi booties that I picked up for a right ol' bargain.

I realise it seems that over-exposure seems have been my best friend for the week (a week of RAFW does leave a gal with a few bags under the eyes) so please forgive me for favoring the ghostly pigmentation- my vanity won the battle.

P.S Ignore the unsightly delegate pass

aaaaaaaaaaaanddd a blooper from me to you

Christian Louboutin....drool....

The Audrey's took a little trip to the NAC showroom to have a peep at the upcoming Christian Louboutin collection to hit the boutique in the city soon. Can I just say...droool. Keep an eye out for more photos over at BWA

In the meantime feast your eyes ladies.

Looking Back

So I have taken a bit of a look back over fashion week and I though to myself...who was the most I was impressed with in terms of creativity and flair? The answer would have to be Perth designer Jamie Lee Major who showed in the New Generation 2 parade. Her detailing and use of fabrics to create different textures was incredible....all I wanted to do was have the chance to look at them up close.

The collection name Pollination is a pop of colour, intricate embellishments and glowing prints designed by Jamie herself. The textile's that she uses are either paintings she has done or photos that she has taken and then rendered in photoshop. However she has done it was blown away by her detailing and designs... I will definitely be keeping my eye on this one.

Aren't these photos amazing! I have been getting into the new Attenborough series Madagascar which has reignited my love of editorials featuring animals and models.

Friday Finals. The last day of RAFW 2011

Here are some style snaps from our final day of this year's RAFW! It was amazing, stressful, incredible, stressful, awesome, stressful, inspiring and tiring, but above all it was a complete BLAST! Cheers to RAFW 2011 and the BWA team for making it out alive with a hefty number of articles in tow. Here's to the next one!


It's not as easy as it looks!

Fashion Week may look like a lot of fun (and sometimes it is!) but it's also a lot of HARD work!! Here are some snaps our lovely photographer Sam Armstrong snuck while Pip and I were in deep state of concentration hard at work in the HP media lounge...

I can't quite articulate why...but i just LOVE this photo- there is such an intensity in her eyes....

The photo is thanks to our amazing photographers Sam Armstrong and James Wright who worked their little bums off at RAFW!

Talk soon lovelies!

Slurry Hills

OK so the title has really not much to do with the post other than location- I just enjoy calling it that...

From way back, when we first wanted to introduce the BWA Diary I asked one of my gorgeous photog friends Sophie Roberts (see her stuff on Cargo Collective HERE) to shoot us.

A great day and a great photographer made for some lovely photos.

I was really feeling the maxi skirt at the time (come to think of it I still am...) and have reinvented a scarf that my mum brought me back from Korea as a belt which I have seriously over worn.

Introductions... Pip x

Hello Hello Hello

It's me Pip Marketing Manager at BWA! I am the one that you don't see many posts from but you do all tend to love all the comps and giveaways that go up so I promise to keep them coming....also maybe the odd post or two.

So day 4 of Rosemount Australian Fashion Week is coming to an end and I am still trying to over come how amazing Alistair Trung was, many a moments were had with too many outfits!
Other highlights of the week for me so far Magdalena Velevska with her perfect knife pleating and detailed plaited hair. Also Stolen Girlfriend club for giving me something different other than colour blocking and sheer drape shirt dresses.

Magdealena Velevska

So as awkward as I am getting my picture taken here are my outfits so far for the week.... minus day 1 as a chocolate croissant accident in the media room left me hiding the front of me for the rest of the day :(

Outfit: Mr Johnny Lace Top, Cameo Skirt, Nicola Finetti Ankle Boots, Tiffany & Co Lock Necklace

Outfit: Manning Cartell Skirt, Zambesi Tassle Top, Josh Goot Jacket, Miss Serfridge Booties.

So that's it from me for now, time to get some shut eye.
