Boy am I glad I had a change of mind and bought myself a ticket to the Nuffnang Fashionopolis 2012, the first event of its kind in Australia. Imagine 150 fashion bloggers and industry people, lots of colour, loud prints, creative personalities, all under the one roof!
It was a full day of informative talks and a chance to meet some highly-respected people in the fashion industry, as well as fellow bloggers from Melbourne and interstate. I had zoomed down the freeway right after teaching in the morning, only to be faced with slow city traffic and a couple of wrong turns, and made it there just before the start of the afternoon sessions!
Yellow tops + printed bottoms unite! With the lovely Chloe of Chloe Ting.
Dasha of Trendspotter: pastel perfection on those legs, AND she's wearing one of her own shoe designs! (Pretty please do a pair just for me..?)
Sunglass Hut running giveaways throughout the day
Sisters Esther and Rachel, of Estelle la Mode. Droolworthy Zara shoes ;)
Sevan of 7 Autumn Leaves
Girls behind Lydra - note the printed leggings!
Miranda and her awesome hair
It was definitely a pleasure to have met so many amazing people, including Phoebe of Lady Melbourne, and Emma of Spin Dizzy Fall! I clearly wasn't able to photograph everyone and everything that was there, but I left the place feeling just a little bit wiser and creatively inspired.
One thing I took away from the arvo - give your social network channels lots of time and love. There, all the time I spend glued to my iPhone and MacBook, justified!
