Last week I attended the highly anticipated One Fell Swoop runway show at the old Hoyts Cinema One in Carillon City, a space which has been unseen since 1983. It was there that design duo, Nikolina Ergic and Daniel Romanin (in their first ever solo show) showcased their latest Spring/Summer collection ‘Making It Up As You Go’. Opening the show in a stunning white floor-length gown was a very familiar face, Australian model Stef Bambi Northwood-Blyth.
The show was wonderful and the collection exceedingly beautiful. There was a mixture of day- and evening wear in the thirty looks shown; their delicate fabrics and cuts radiated femininity and ethereality, elements that are so very One Fell Swoop. Hair was styled by Head Studio and make-up by the very talented Ashley Brockman Creative.
I’ve posted up a few of my favourite looks from the collection, although there are plenty more that I love! To see the collection in its’ entirety, click here.
It was such an incredible night. I’m already looking forward to seeing what their next collection brings!

I was really excited to have been given the opportunity to represent What’s the Goh at StyleAid this year. For those of you who may not be aware, StyleAid is a yearly black tie fashion fundraiser event that showcases the best of local fashion, with funds going to the WA Aids Council. This year, it was held at the Crown Perth Hotel with over 750 guests attending. My favourites from the runway show were all of the Vivienne Westwood looks from Dilettante and of course, the beautiful pieces from One Fell Swoop.
Frustratingly, I couldn’t get the settings right on my camera during the parade so images are limited and the ones above are a little out of focus. Hopefully you will still be able to get a rough insight to my night. I had an amazing time and if you didn’t attend this year, seriously consider going to the next as it’s all for an incredible cause!

Every time I acquire a vintage item I always wonder about it’s previous life and owner(s). How did they style it? I came across this coat in a vintage store in Paris. I love textured garments so my eyes were instantly drawn to this large mass of green faux fur. It is a little too big for me, there are some bald patches and it is really quite heavy, but I really don’t care about these faults at all. I guess there are just some things that you adore, even if some of their parts are a little wrong.
