It’s been a very crazy few months with Westfield as their summer ambassador for 2013 and I honestly don’t know where to begin. The last two and a half months have seen me embark on what has to be one of the biggest highlights of my career so far. I’ve personally and professionally grown in this short amount of time, learning both the positives and negatives of working on a campaign this large and how to handle it. I visited three different states in Australia to host special media events to launch our #limousine13 fashion film as well as hosting Vogue Fashion’s Night Out in Sydney CBD where we had an overwhelming response with hundreds of people flooding into the middle of the bustling Sydney CBD. Perhaps the 14 topless men had something to do with it?
My latest role as Westfield’s ambassador was visiting Westfield Doncaster in Melbourne to launch a special project – a millinery exhibition called ‘Reflections of Spring Racing’ which features not ordinary photos, but instead eight cinemagraphs of eight of Australia’s most fashionable women. Each in a exquisite hat and showcasing the best up-coming fashion for the Spring Racing Festival which is just around the corner!
This is just a little scrapbook / diary of my experiences over the past few months with Westfield. There has been campaign shoots, magazine shoots, media events and TV and print interviews. You’ll also notice my lovely co-stars Jordan and Zac Stenmark are featured quite a lot. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve had a #stenmarksandwich but I’m utterly grateful for this opportunity for bringing us all together.
I never realised how much having the support of my friends, readers and peers meant to me until now. A quick thank you to everyone who took the time to attend our events, wrote articles, sent warm wishes, commented, tweeted, instagrammed and hashtagged. None of it went unnoticed and I truly appreciate your support for this campaign. I’m still coming to terms with the fact it’s already over, but looking back on these photos makes it feel like it was just yesterday we were nervously filming on set in a big empty warehouse in the middle of winter…
