Fashion Weekend Sydney '15

Fashion Weekend Sydney 2015 did it again! With designer runway shows and many designer stalls with clothing up to 70% or more discount throughout the four full days, I only managed to catch one day (a little bummed I missed out on meeting Margaret Zhang on the opening night though), and it was quite enjoyable. The runway show featured 15 beautiful models from Chic Management who burned the runway! (did I say that right?) 

It was mainly ready-to-wear clothing and my favourite was most likely Ixiah, whose every season blow me away with their designs. I managed to sit in front row in the media pit, which I thought was unusual cause I don't know normally sit near the media pit. So I took these photos from the media pit. Let me know down in the comments what you think of them! 

Thank you Fashion Weekend Sydney for media passes again this year!

Oh did I tell you I recently got snapchat? My snapchat is @suzannedang

Rebecca Vallance:

"Australianā€born Rebecca Vallance infuses her eponymous line with a whimsical sprit and strong global aesthetic, creating timeless pieces that are both classically constructed and innovative in design. Through an unexpected mix of structured tailoring and fluid draping, the collection brings complimentary contrast to its unique prints and textures. The result is a distinctly edgy yet sophisticated offering that eschews trends in favor of embracing its own path." ~ Rebecca Vallance

White Suede:

"White Suede's design philosophy conceptualises contradictions between modern, sculptured designs and draping techniques to create their silhouettes."~ White Suede

Winston Wolfe:

"WW epitomizes that chic blasé and inconspicuous appeal. Merging the stylish Parisian woman with the rawness of New York and backing it up with that laid back Aussie style, the WW woman signifies the spirit of NOW. Confident and metallic, the WW consumer sees the world as a playground and wears leather while running around it. Infusing her laid back effect to dresses into each piece, Kristie Kahler draws from her travels and inspiration to create an affordable and wearing piece for every girl. Kristie has soaked up that vibe and thrown it into her collections, season after season." ~ Winston Wolfe
