The second day of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia belonged to my favourite shows of the week – Matecevski and Michael Lo Sordo. Both happen to be dear friends that I naturally gravitated towards because of their kind nature, playful humour and honest words, so fusing pieces from both of their collections for the third day of MBFWA seemed like the perfect idea. From runway to real life, I stole this lemon look from Michael’s show. The silk trench coat was beautifully breezy with its fluid movement being able to keep up with my fast-paced schedule, so fast that we only managed to shoot two photos of the outfit in-between shows!

A beacon of colour by Karla Spetic for the second day of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia. The oversized and fuzziness of this incredible cardigan, draped around my torso as the midday heat started to rise, paired with hints of unexpected fluro orange seemed to be the perfect contrast to the dark and dreary backstage area where we were interviewing people for the live stream. A sultry and strategically placed slit, soft coloured satin and lace panels with a plunging back created the perfect summer slip dress that seemed all too appropriate to shoot in the fading afternoon light down at Carrigeworks in Sydney.

MBFWA Day 1 http://garypeppergirl.com/2014/04/mbfwa-day-1 http://garypeppergirl.com/2014/04/mbfwa-day-1#comments Thu, 17 Apr 2014 00:27:25 +0000 http://garypeppergirl.com/?p=22822 Jumping straight into Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia that came and conquered in a blink of an eye.]]>

Jumping straight into Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia that came and conquered in a blink of an eye, this is perhaps my favourite day of Fashion Week as everyone is fresh faced and fumbling with excitement to see what our Australian designers have planned for us. I reprised my role as one of the official hosts for the week, as well as my new role as Lavazza’s Style Consultant, which meant interviewing designers, international guests, celebrities, models, etc for the Mercedes-Benz Live Stream and this time for Lavazza’s digital channels. We worked together on the interior design for the Lavazza Lounge – a beautiful light-filled space where I interviewed some of Australia’s most exciting up-and-coming and established designers.

These are a few shots from the morning where I interviewed some of the sweetest people in the industry: Susie Bubble, Tommy Ton and Steve Salter. I’m wearing perhaps one of my favourite outfits ever created by one of my favourite Australian designers Karla Spetic, who has created the softest, fuzziest and chicest jumper of my dreams. How she always finds the perfect balance between polished yet playful will always have my wallet and wardrobe crying (with happiness, of course).

Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival Diary http://garypeppergirl.com/2014/04/virgin-australia-melbourne-fashion-festival-diary http://garypeppergirl.com/2014/04/virgin-australia-melbourne-fashion-festival-diary#comments Wed, 16 Apr 2014 07:53:40 +0000 http://garypeppergirl.com/?p=22836 Skipping back to Melbourne a few weeks ago, I was invited to VAMFF with Lavazza as their new Style Consultant for 2014.]]>

Skipping back to Melbourne a few weeks ago, I was invited to VAMFF with Lavazza as their new Style Consultant for 2014. We’ll be working together during four of the biggest moments in Australian fashion – Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia and Weekend Edition, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival Sydney and Spring Racing Carnival. I’m thrilled with the partnership as fashion and coffee are such a large part of the Gary Pepper lifestyle, so being able to fuse both together to collaborate during the most celebrated fashion events of the year is like having the best of both (very and equally addictive) worlds. I’ll be working closely with Lavazza creatively by advising them from a fashion industry perspective and helping design and execute projects surrounding each event. Melbourne was a wonderful way to announce the partnership, especially as my beautiful friend Michael Lo Sordo had also recently collaborated with them by designing their coffee cup with one of his signature prints, which also seemed to have wrapped its way around my body and into my life.

It’s quite obvious I have some serious ground to cover and content catch up on. I have weeks worth of posts coming from Paris, Switzerland, Dubai, and Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia in Sydney. I hope keeping my head above water by updating my Instagram every day makes up for my lack of posts on here. I think this sudden down pour of rain reflects my blog at the moment – when it rains, it pours, and you’ll all be swimming in new posts in absolutely no time at all.

Valentino Dress (similar here) and Cape

An all black ensemble, a deadly wine lip and a slight eery breeze was the perfect contrast to the feelings this ethereal backdrop of Central Park after the snow storm was making me feel. Nothing but light and nowhere to hide. Why go with the tide when you can swim on your own? A few thoughts running through my mind that morning…
