So this is what happens when Zanita and I take the day off together. On Monday we teamed up and spent the day creating a mini fashion shoot to help support the Westfield Giveability store – a fashion focused charity created to help raise money for kids living with cerebral palsy. I styled a few looks from the racks of beautiful pieces donated by celebrities such as Kylie Minogue, Rose Byrne, Naomi Watts, Mirando Otto, Bambi Northwood-Blythe, and designers like Sass & Bide, Ksubi, Zimmerman, Alex Perry, Marnie Skillings and Yeojin Bae – just to name a few, which Zanita then photographed me wearing around the city and being a “Girl About Town”. The aim was to show you all how beautiful these donated pieces are. Can you spot the Alexander Mcqueen shoes worth $3,500 or the $950 Zimmerman dress from their latest RAFW show? Seriously amazing and all up for grabs next week.

All donated items will be available to purchase from the Giveability pop-up stores which open their doors in Sydney at Westfield Bondi Junction from the 19th-24th of July, before moving to Melbourne at Westfield Doncaster from the 26-31st of July. Exclusive pieces will also be auctioned off online at www.westfield.com.au to help make this charity available to everyone and a truly national fundraising initiative. 100% of the proceeds from all sales will go to Cerebral Palsy Alliance and Scope.

It’s just amazing to see so many celebrities and designers get behind such a worthy cause and I hope you will too! A special thanks to the girls at Arc Factory PR for letting us take over their office for the afternoon and to Zanita for coming up with this wonderful idea.
