#Street Style Highlights
Fashion Week Australia’s location at Carriageworks is a photographer’s dream! So many different backdrops. For those not familiar with the location, Carriageworks used to be the Eveleigh Rail Yards, long disused and now heritage listed. A gigantic old open-sided railway shed fronts the complex. Old tram lines still run down the centre of a road that divides the old shed area from the red brickwork building featuring 19th century architecture. It’s in this building that most of the runway shows are set. In between is where many of the street style shots you see from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, are taken.
Day 2 was busy and the shows were full. There were queues for standing room tickets to see the Misha Collection. That and international runway model Bella Hadid, who’s been chosen as the face of Misha. The Media Rise (where the photographers are situated) was chockers! Tickets became unavailable and the doors finally closed to a capacity audience who were not disappointed. And this was just one of the 12 shows that were scheduled for Day 2.
There was so much to see. So much new fashion. So many fashionistas. Bloggers. Photographers. Models. International guests and visitors. Attention to detail. And so many celebrities. Photographers were kept busy from 9am with the official opening until 9 pm with Dion Lee’s new collection on show off-site on the 26th Floor of the Bloomberg Building.
Long time followers know that we like to focus our lenses squarely on those attending. Here are what we’re calling our “Highlights” from Day 2. This is Part 1: There’s so much more to share! All Photos: Dimitra Koriozos
