It's been slightly over a week since I've been back from MBFWA in Sydney and I'm still reeling in excitement a little over the whole experience. Being backstage for the Michael Lo Sordo show (thank you, Skin Inc!) and watching all the behind the scenes action unfold in front of my eyes was an eye-opener. From seeing the models arrive, to them getting prepped and ready for runway - it was all rather chaotic. So many people are involved to put a show together and before you know it, the show is over in about 20 minutes. All that prep work for 20 minutes!
It was so lovely getting to meet and chat with one of the designers, Michael Lo Sordo backstage. He was surprisingly really calm before the show. I can imagine that I'd be a bundle of nerves if I were in his shoes! Velda, my fashion-bunny companion throughout this trip and I even bumped into him at a The Grounds of Alexandria a couple of days later. What a nice coincidence.
The both of us people watched in between shows - it's really fun to see so many people dressed up, took OOTDs for each other - I love the white playsuit that I'm wearing (thank you for dressing me for the shows, Miss Selfridge!), and did a pit stop at Bill's Cafe at Surrey Hills to fuel up - the ricotta hotcakes are to die for. What fun. :)
