Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Sydney – Day 3

Photos by – Yunn Chin Photography

Hello Everyone!!!

We were hoping to post the photos from Mercedes Benz Fashion Week on the week of the event but since it is our first time editing thousands of images, there has been a slight delay HEHEHE.

Day 3 of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week was just as crazy as the first 2 days.

We saw a total of 5 runway shows:

TALULAH

The Swim & Resort “Crystal Tropics” Spring /2014 collection presents a visual bohemian story, filled with soft feminine silhouettes, strong graphics; geometric and organic prints on silk fabrics and tasseled finishes.

A collection with playful shorts, one-pieces, cute separates, girly maxis and kaftans, styled with big beaded layers statement necklaces. Bold floral and leopard prints, pastels against black and navy with strong warm tones. The pieces are an essential to have for spring and summer.

LEROY NGUYEN

I was really excited to see Leroy Nguyen’s runway collection, from what I’ve seen from him in the past, his collections are bold, beautifully youthful, colourful and fun.
2014’s Mercedes Benz Fashion Week is Leroy Nguyen’s first stand-alone runway show and we see a different stylistic collection compared to the ones before it.

“Blue Rose” a collection inspired by the memorable fantasy movie “Pan’s Labyrinth”. Projected cool tones through baby blue pastels, royal blues, touches of purples and pinks. Rose prints and cuts really brings the designers “Blue Rose” concept to light.

CAMEO

Cameo is one of my favourite labels!
When I found out that their “Boggie Nights” collection would be presented at Fashion Week, I was determined not to miss it.
The Angular edges, minimalistic prints, beautiful green tones, lace and sheer textures.
Mature, strong and feminine silhouettes, Cameo always has a unique aesthetic to their designs, which you can spot from a mile away.

MATICEVSKI

Maticevski, Maticevski, MATICEVSKI! The more I see of Toni Maticevski’s designs, the more in love I fall. Everything about the collection; the colour, to the structure, the monochromatic prints, the bold midi skirts and the coats, oh the coats!!!!

GALLANNI

Wildly romantic, flawless, elegant designs that shout the essence of pure glamour. It was a great way to end our third day into Fashion Week.

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week – Day 2

Photos by – Yunn Chin Photography

Monday was the day that we got into the real swing of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week; with shows back to back, celebrities out and about, bloggers from all over dressed to impress and an army of photographers ready to attack with their long intimidating cameras.

We started the day bright and early from 8am and ended it right through to 9:30pm (Oh yeah, it was one long day, especially when your in 5 inch heels hahaha!).

We saw a total of six amazing runway shows:

AURELIO COSTARELLA

Soft flowing feathers, embellishments with detailed sequenced beading, colours of fuchsia, orange and gorgeous limes shouted 1920s parisienne glamour.
Gowns with feminine bodices, clean lines and light fabrics flowing so delicately down the runway. The collection was the right balance between femininity and strength.

Check out an interview with the designer by clicking HERE

STRATEAS. CARLUCCI

Sleek, long lines, different textures with a greys, navy and whites, this collection oozed sophistication at its best.
A mixture of textures from leather, knits, wrinkled sheer, layered fabrics and quilted jumpers stated a unique exploration of aesthetics and visual textures.

BY JOHNNY

My first encounter of By Johnny was Fashion Weekend and if you have followed me from the start you must know how obsessed I am with the label. Unfortunately I’m not the only one, the show had reached capacity and I was left outside only dreaming of what could be haha! But luckily Chin got photos so it was still a win win.

The collection was filled with pastels, ice cream swirls, bright pops of orange outlined with a contrasting black and white.
In all honestly it was a collection that I didn’t swoon over, however, who am I to comment when I didn’t see it in person. Whatever the case, by Johnny has left an imprint on my mind and I will always constantly be on the look out for their new creations.

GAIL SORRONDA

This was the first time I had seen one of Gail Sorronda’s collections and it was amazing!!!

Reminding me of my childhood designs with cute subtle floral prints and soft bubble sleeves. The delicately textured fabrics, layered pleated sheer mesh-like material with slight glimpses of houndstooth print through the collection. Unforgettable co-ordinates, ethereal and edwardian like pieces ignited a flame of “NEED” in my subconscious.

The collection left me desperately wanting more! Definitely unforgettable.

PHEONIX KEATING

Known for lady gaga’s crazy outfits, Phoenix Keating’s collection had a distinct difference from the rest.

Structured and edgy, the matador like themed collection was visually eye catching and daring.
For me the collection had left a commanding mark on the runway compared to the collections before it.

Outfit Posts – Never Before Seen (Unedited)

Hi Everyone!!!

Through the past year that I’ve been blogging, taking outfit photos is not all glamorous as the photos depict.

Most of my outfit posts have been taken by my photographer boyfriend, Chin and as compatible as we are, there are still the rare days that we don’t see eye to eye with the imagery that we are trying to translate in our photos.

Apart from that, there are also the occasional moments of when I’m having a bad day and I just don’t feel like taking pictures of my gloomy self.

Then there are the days that I feel unsure of myself, the days that I’m feeling super insecure………….THE UGLY DAYS! You know what I’m talking about hahaha!

Well this is exactly what this post is ALL about :)

All the outfits that never made it on the blog for all the above reasons and for whatever reasons that made us not share it at the time…..… until now kekeke.

So to celebrate the year that has past, here are never before seen outfits (unedited) :)

P.S. sorry if I’m grumpy in some of them hahahaha, at least you’ll be able to tell, which photos I was having a bad day in.

Thanks for visiting I’ll see you guys in my next post :D

HELLO YOUTUBE!!!

Hello :) !

Sorry I haven’t been up to date recently, I’ve been juggling everything along with the added preparations of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Sydney next week.

Yup, I actually got my accreditation approved as a fashion blogger YAY!!! WOOT WOOT !!! So expect to see plenty of posts next week from me about Fashion Week Sydney kekekekeek!

As I said in my last post, March was the birthday month of Fashiondiction and we would be posting some special posts to celebrate. Since I’ve been a little bit behind, I’ll still be making up for it this week starting with this post. :)

I’ve said it before, writing is not exactly one of my strong suits but over time I’ve learnt a thing or to and slightly improved (I hope hahaha!). However, this hasn’t stopped me from wanting to post vlogs, it has always been on my to do list even from the very beginnings of Fashiondiction and since we made it to one year, I thought now was the best time to start.

Before we get into it, something you guys might not know about me is that before I blogged and immersed myself in fashion, singing and music was a massive part of my life. Coming from a family of singers (you know Filos, they can all sing hahahaha) at one time I was going to pursue my singing career but due to health and vocal issues I was stopped dead in my tracks. After almost 3 years of vocal, speech therapy and rehabilitation I have just started singing again.
This YouTube channel is literally 5 years in the making, if you are one of my long time close friends, you know exactly how long this has taken me to put up.

How it’s going to work is, along with my normal blog posts, starting from next Wednesday I’ll be posting every week. One week will be a Fashiondiction Vlog and the other week will be a cover song. EEEEK! A little nervous I’m not gonna lie.
At least this way it will keep me on track with trying to update you guys on a regular basis hehehe.

So to start it off here is the first Video, just a quick introduction about what I’m all about.

Hope you like it, if you do, support me and subscribe HAHAHAHA…. But seriously… subscribe.

Thanks for visiting and keep a look out for me this Thursday with a post you guys will not want to miss ;)

Fashiondiction’s First Birthday

To get you guys updated, you haven’t heard from me in a bit because I have been working on some really special posts for the month of March, since it is…….*drum roll* THE 1ST BIRTHDAY OF FASHIONDICTION!!!! WOOT WOOT!

February is the month that we started the blog but March was when we officially launched Fashiondiction and WOW!!! I can’t believe it has already been a year!
So much has changed, we have progressed far more than we had anticipated and what started as a personal hobby has grown into something completely unexpected.

So for Fashiondiction’s birthday celebration month we will be looking back into our fashion looks, outfits that never made it on the blog, special photoshoots, plus so much more (but I’m not saying anymore so you’ll just have to wait and see).

On the very last day of the month keep an eye out because you won’t want to miss our last post ;)

To start it off here are all the outfit posts from the past year!!!

Wish – ‘Wait For Sunrise’

Here is a sneak peak for the new winter collection for Wish – “Wait for Sunrise”!!
I have always loved their dresses but this recent collection has by far stood out to me the most.

Living on a student budget, the key thing I look for when I purchase items is its diverse aesthetic, how many different ways it can be styled and how many times it can be worn (especially items that are slightly out of my budget).
Although, I do love my girly floral prints, big filly skirts and cute lacy tops, I also love mixing it up with sporty street wear (the hidden tomboy in me ;) ), without loosing the femininity in my style and this collection is exactly that.

Each piece can be taken and adapted perfectly into so many different personal styles, from casual to chic and it can be worn from day to night.
The dresses keep that sweet feminine touch with the structure, print, cut and lines. However, the separates are cool and edgy, with an urban aesthetic.

It is definitely a collection full of pieces that I can see myself exhausting, both wearing it for work and my college life.

Keep a look out for it HERE!

CASPER & PEARL RELEASE AW14 COLLECTION: SWEET HEART HIGH

Casper and Pearl has always been a label that have admired from a far, simply because when you’re a student, you are limited by the fashion items that you can afford and if I am being completely honest….I’m pretty poor LOL! (This explains why you see me scoring so much stuff on sale). Never the less, this has never stopped me from putting items even as little as under $100 on my wish list, Casper and Pearl being one of those labels.

The label recently released a new collection ‘Sweet Heart High’, one of there biggest ones yet, with everything that I look for in a future purchase: Fun, bright, colorful floral prints with matching separates and cute preppy dresses. The collections is also mixed with some sporty items for those who aren’t 100% into floral prints, giving it the right medium between girly and sporty chic.

Check out the new collection here :)

Outfit Post – Maxi Dresses

Maxi dress – O’NEILL

Photos by – Yunn Chin Photography

So much has happened since the last time I posted, one of which being, within two weeks I have now unexpectedly moved to a new place (CRAZY!!!). This explains why I haven’t posted for more than a week (eeeek! Sorry guys)

I am now also back at college, and there are so many new projects that I am undertaking (more exciting news on this later ;) ).  On top of all the craziness, I am now currently in Melbourne, finally getting some needed time away.

Just before the sunny weather comes to a halt and Autumn settles in, I thought I would sneak one more cheeky summer outfit post.

I have always stayed away from wearing maxi dresses because of the fact that I thought it made me look shorter than I already am. But once I tried one on, my insecurities went out the window and now it is one of my favourite things to wear for sunny weather.
I love how you can wear it to a casual BBQ and dress it up for a dinner date with your favourite person.
I was fortunate enough to get this baby on sale, the pastel floral prints had me at hello and I had to have it.

Next month will be Fashiondiction’s 1 year birthday WOOT WOOT!
Be sure to stay tuned because I’ll be posting some really exciting stuff to celebrate :) !!!!!

Thanks for visiting and I’ll catch you guys and girls soon ;)

HELLO :)!!!

I know this post is exactly a week late; unfortunately I was completely bedridden with a sinus virus last week and for the life of me I could not even lift a finger.

Finally out of my prison of immobility, I’m super excited to share this outfit post with you all!

A couple of weekends ago, Chin and I decided to do a mini road trip to Wollongong, a city that is a 2-hour drive away from Sydney.

It was a really hot summer day, so I thought I would wear something fun, casual and girly. I managed to pull out this old silk, crochet trimmed crop, which I have had for almost 6 years and paired it with high-waisted shorts.
The piping on the shorts, visually adds length to your legs and having longer looking legs is never a bad thing, am I right ladies? hehehe.

I matched the crop with fun laced flats and wore light make up to give it more of that summer feel (to be honest, I hate wearing a lot of make up in summer, because of the hot weather, it just feels like my face has melted off by the end of the day hahahaha).

It was a super fun day; we also visited the Nan Tien Temple, which I thought was absolutely beautiful! Next time your in Wollongong I’d definitely recommend checking it out :).

Now, I mentioned before in my previous posts, that taking photos in front of a big camera in public is very daunting. No matter how many times I do it, I never seem to completely get use to it.
So with this outfit post, Chin and I thought we would try something different; we brought along the camera and decided to do a impromptu shoot.
Between you and me, it was so much better than standing in front of a camera and “posing”. I’ve said it before; I am not in anyway shape or form a model, so this way of taking photos was more in my comfort zone. It was a more realistic view into how I am and how I wear my clothes.

With that said, every now and then we will be doing these types of photos, just to spice things up.

Thanks for visiting!
I’ll see you on Thursday and I promise this time I won’t be sick to miss it ;)
