MBFWA Sydney

Hello all! I have just returned from a whirlwind trip to Sydney to illustrate the shows and am exhausted, def am going to get a fashion flu by the end of the week. It was so utterly amazing and eye-opening! I spent a chunk of my savings funding myself to go but why not?! I successfully received a media press pass (under 'photographer', there was not really an illustrator option) and was able to attend as many shows as I liked to sketch whatever was coming down the catwalk. I met some amazing people, took some great pics and managed to pick up a bit of work while I was there specifically for the amazing Manning Cartell and Scout.

I was also lucky enough to be given an invite to the Burberry eyewear event by my lovely friend Marcia at Style Voyeur and WOW what a night! Check out her blog for a run down of who I met and how I embarrassed myself multiple times. Below are a couple of illos I did from the photos I took of some amazing people I met that night. 
And stay tuned to Style Voyeur for sketches of my top 5 shows from the week!
