MSFW: Opening Gala

MSFW: Opening Gala

Whoever said couture runways are only for the most special of fashion weeks was completely wrong.






Melbourne is now officially in league with Paris and New York Fashion Week.

I know right. Who would have thought?

Last night, we were blown away by the incredible collections from the Australian designer's Jason Grech, Aurelio Costarella, Carla Zampatti, Gwendolynne, Nevenka, Rachel Gilbert, Akira, Zhivago and Nicolangela.

Wow - thats the perfect word for it.


The mood was set with a live electric cello player, and a beautiful opera solo for the finale. 
Each garment was intricate, oh so delicate and feminine and now I'm just praying I'll be invited to Logies so I can wear one...Yeah, right Georgia. Quit dreaming!

The headpieces and masks from the likes of Richard Nylon, exquisite jewels from Jeanette Maree and perfect hair and makeup by Kevin Murphy and Mecca. 


It's safe to say it was a night to remember. Check out some of the photos from the Runway below.

Yesterday was the Forever New runway in MSFW's Hub! This normally tranquil space in city square, is transformed every year into a giant runway marquee to feature some of Australia's favourite 'ready to wear' brands!

Forever New's Spring Summer 2015/2016, Ibiza Lux collection, features simple every day designs, formalwear, a spring racing focus and finally, our favourite, designs for the chic fashionista!

We were really excited to mark the first day of Spring by seeing all the amazing colours that this runway had to offer.

Check out some of our favourite outfit combos from the runway and lookbook below!

Sunday night marked the beginning of Melbourne Spring Fashion Week, with emerging designers - or students - showcasing their collections on the runway.

The spotlight was on those from RMIT, Holmesglen Institute, Kangan Institute, Box Hill Institute, FashionMasters and Whitehouse Institute, and what amazing talent!

All designs were unique and detailed, emphasising the dedication and love of fashion that each designer must have to complete each collection.

Going Vegan

Going Vegan

Written By Melbourne and Georgette Editor

In the last couple of months I was really excited to be introduced to INIKA Cosmetics.
To be honest, I had only heard of them in passing while visiting a skin specialist. It wasn’t until I tried their products that I found out what all the hype was about.

INIKA is a premium 100% natural cosmetic brand that gives women (and a few self-assured men) the power to truly express who they are.


INIKA cosmetics are Certified Vegan, or Certified Organic or both, and are also Certified Cruelty Free and Certified Halal. This gave me complete confidence in knowing that the stuff I was wearing, I could basically eat, and it wouldn’t damage my skin. Not to mention, I felt much better knowing that it wasn’t tested on animals.








All of the products are fashion forward, and really stays with up to day with modern make-up trends. And clearly being all natural ingredients really does make a difference, as I feel like all of the INIKA products give me a fresh and full coverage without the cakeyness that usually comes with it.

One of the things that really made me a genuine convert was their primer. After many unsuccessful Primer trials with many different brands (even the critically acclaimed ones) I felt like Primer did nothing for me. No matter what my pores were still huge and my make-up FELL off my face, requiring many re-applications during the day. 

So I gave up on Primers. I just used moisturiser. That seemed to do a better job than most of the products I tried.

As soon as I used the INIKA primer, I was sold. It was lightweight, easy to apply and most importantly, my make-up lasts FOREVER in immaculate condition.  I actually couldn't believe it. So I have stocked up on the product ever since. The bottle itself costs $60, but contains a lot of liquid that will last a considerable amount of time, as you only need a small amount when you apply.



Finished product using all INIKA 
My favourite products

INIKA has now become a part of my daily make-up routine, and I haven't found an aspect I don't like about the brand.

Basically, I say you need to try this stuff.

You can buy their range of cosmetics on their website.

The Renowned Emirates Marquee

The Renowned Emirates Marquee

Written By Melbourne and Georgette Editor

It is often referred to as the best and most famous Birdcage Marquee during the annual Racing Carnival in Melbourne.

The Emirates Marquee is the place to been seen during the carnival and leads to being recognised as some of Australia's most well known celebrities, influencers and business folk. So who wouldn't want to be invited!

Each year, the tent is given a luxurious theme in which their attendees can be steeped into history and mingle among lavish decorations. Situated right on the straight, one has full view of the infamous races, as well as being fully catered alongside entertainment. 

2014 Emirates Marquee - Germany themed

This year, Emirates has decided to celebrate one of its main hubs and take on the celebration of London. It marks the new birth of Princess Charlotte, as well as saluting to the 50 year anniversary of English Jean Shrimpton's scandalous dress.

Each Marquee takes rigorous planning and dedication, so it is no surprise that the theme is decided on and planned a whole five months in advance.

This year marks the 12th year as Emirates being the principal partner of the Flemington Spring Racing Carnival, as well as sponsoring the main event, the Emirates Melbourne Cup!

The notorious winning post at Flemington

We are so looking forward to the Carnival, and can't wait to share our experiences with you all!
