Can I make a confession? I have absolutely no idea why these photos turned out so…blue. All I can tell you is that I took them early in the morning – around 7 or so – so maybe it was something to do with the dawn light. I doubt I could recreate it if I tried.
This is the outfit I wore to kick of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia. While the festival has not started proper, there are a handful of events happening off schedule – and this morning’s presentation from Melbourne-based label LIFEwithBIRD was one of them.
Held in the Utzon Room at the Sydney Opera House, the collection drew on elements of the Australian landscape translated into digital prints and rendered in dreamy, blown-out pastels. The palette reminded me of a sunset over a desert – when the sky turns cotton-candy shades of lilac, orange and pink, and the shadows lengthen into shades of muted navy.
