My husband and I were invited to a fashion show last night.
It was Curtin’s Fashion, Textile and Jewellery Design graduation show. Actually my husband got the invite, and I – not being nearly as cool as he – had to pay for a ticket like all the other mere mortals. Ha!
500 people. Great show. Fantastic production. Very glitzy and glamorous. Lots of big wigs – I think? Not as much media as I expected though. Very cool clothes – most were amazing non-wearable garments.
I was so inspired by all the beautiful fabrics, styles and cuts. There was a wonderful mix of handmade art and glitzy fashion in all the pieces. From a design point of view, it was all very, very cool. It made me all jittery with excitement and crave to delve into fashion design!
The floor was packed with people. Like sardines. We were chit chatting to various people when I realised that we were slowly being pushed to the back. So just before the show started, I left my husband to continue chatting, I wiggled my way to the front, and stole some guy’s VIP seat right up the front. Hence the cool pics. W00t.
I had a good time after the show too. We stood around and chatted to people – I met the [very relieved] designers. I chatted to some my old lecturers. I talked to heaps of old friends who I studied with, and caught up with all the local design gossip. So fun! It was a really nice night.
