Boy do I LOVE fashion week!

I'm so thrilled to be able to partner with Mercedes Benz this year to bring you all my favourite moments from Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival 2017. Cars and fashion go hand in hand for me as I'm all about embracing style in all aspects of your life (yep! It definitely goes beyond what you wear on your back!), and to be honest - it doesn't get more stylish than Mercedes Benz. The GLC 250d I've been cruising around in for the past couple weeks has set the perfect backdrop for all the fun at this year's festival - let's just say driving in peak hour Melbourne traffic to the Royal Exhibition Building is actually a pleasure this time ha!

The Opening Gala runway supported by Vogue definitely set the tone for a stylish week ahead. It's always a thrill to see Aussie designers on runways and being able to shop the runway? Even better. 

If you need a recap of trends, here's a little style summary:
- Red, red, red: go all out with a monotone look or with accents of colour via stockings and hats
- Crisp whites: tailored looks with an edge, all about straight lines and being a boss
- Embellishments: it's all in the detail so think embroidery, intricate patterns and lace

A big THANK YOU to Mercedes Benz for an amazing day and trip to the show in the stunning GLC - we have so much more beautiful content to share with you all throughout the week...cant wait!
