Happy New Year everyone!

I’m excited to share with you my very first blog post for 2018! How is it the end of January already?!

As some of you may be aware, Adelaide is experiencing a bit of a heat-wave, which created the perfect excuse to go to the beach!

On Saturday, my friend and I ventured down to Seacliff beach for some much needed relaxation and rejuvenation, and what better place to reset then at the beach.

I’m mostly a river girl, so when I go to the beach – it’s exciting because I can get more use out of my ‘nicer’ bathers that I know won’t get ruined by murky water or chlorine.

For this occasion, I teamed my Seafolly black & white Chevron one piece with a matching tote and black & white patterned round towel.

I have naturally very fair skin, so a one piece (albeit trendy) is also a sensible choice for myself.  However this particular suit gives off unfortunate tan lines – but hey, small price to pay for fashion!

The water was crystal clear, slightly cool which became a needed relief from the steamy sun, the sand hot but soft and the atmosphere of Seacliff was busy, yet chilled.


Nothing feels more Australian to me, then spending the day at the beach to hopping to another beach at night, letting your hair be free and makeup low-key, it’s a cleansing feeling.

With the new year already in full swing, it’s nice to take a moment and have fun, not worry about the to-do list, let go of inhabitations and simply be.

This is the theme I am intending for this year, to let go of what doesn’t serve me and just be. Easier said than done, but I believe everything is a practice and good things take time.

This year, instead of resolutions, I’ve set intentions, including some goals, but mainly a focus on joy and being present.

I hope you’ve all had a wonderful start to the new year, and that your 2018 only gets better and better!

AFF 2017

It was every little girls dream…

Sunday evening I attended the Paolo Sebastian 2018 Spring/Summer Couture Collection ‘Once Upon a Dream’ show, which was the finale of the Adelaide Fashion Festival 2017 hosted in the Torrens Parade Ground.

The Festival itself was on another level, with barbie pink photo-booths and horse statues, you knew your mind was going to be blown by whatever was behind those doors.

Paolo Sebastian brought your favourite Disney characters to life and somehow made everyone’s dreams come true.

It wasn’t a fashion show, it was an experience that left you in awe and with tears in your eyes.

Inspired by Disney movies, you got to escape with him on this magical journey of fashion.

Fairy tale dresses full of french tulle, silk chiffon and beads glided down the grass covered runway that was decorated with floral arrangements that would overhang and tower over the models.

In collaboration with Disney, Paul celebrates his tenth year and sixteenth collection of Paolo Sebastian dedicating this collection to all those who believed in a dream, as Walt Disney said ‘all our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.

With the contrast of the cinderella and wicked witch, Paul channels the beauty within both the light and dark. Leaving us inspired by the dress that truly represents fairy tales, that they all lived Happily Ever After…

PARIS – PFW A/W 2017


On the 4th July 2017 I had the privilege of attending Paris Fashion Week, Alexis Mabille Haute-Couture Autumn/Winter 2017 at Hotel D’evreux.

When I arrived at my hotel in Paris, they handed me the invitation that was sent for me. To say I was excited is a HUGE understatement. I have dreamt of attending Paris Fashion Week for as long as I can remember, and to be invited to a Designers’ Haute-Couture Collection Showing was a little mind-blowing.

My instant reaction was to scream and cry from my Paris balcony (which I did) my second was to go shopping to find THE outfit to wear.

Luckily, I was in the perfect city to go shopping and on the first day I found THE outfit.

The day of the show I was a bunch of nerves, anticipating getting ready and making sure we weren’t late.

The time came, and the traffic was manic, fortunately we arrived just in time and arrived at Hotel D’evreux located next to the Ritz, where we went after for a ‘post-show’ drink (as you do).

We were greeted at the door by fancy models in suits and headed up to the collection showcase where we were provided with champagne.

All the guests were dressed to the nines and I wasn’t sure where to look. Couture gowns were displayed in every room, where the rooms resembled the Palace of Versailles – high ceilings and gold trimmings, it was something out of a dream.

We spent the next hour, flowing from room to room gushing over the gorgeous gowns, which took over 3 weeks to complete (each) and had 4 people working on them at a time.

Alexis Mabille is an International Designer, having worked with Christian Dior and Yves Saint Laurent before going out on his own with brand – Alexis Mabille. Alexis has also worked with the likes of Dita Von Tesse, has had a feature in Vogue and has over 40,000 followers on Instagram.

I was fortunate enough to catch up with Alexis and talk to him about his designs and the process involved, the passion in his voice when describing the collection was that of a true artist.

I was so honoured to be able to have the chance to meet Alexis and attend his Haute-Couture Autumn/Winter 2017 Collection Showcase and will forever remember every second of it.


It’s not every day you get to go to Paris Fashion Week, and it’s not every day your dreams come true. On the 4th July 2017, one of my lifelong goals and dreams came true and it was a surreal/proud moment, one that will forever be cherished.

I am very fortunate to have this platform and share with you the opportunities I’ve had, and people I’ve met, that I never thought possible, I’m so grateful for everything Fateful Fashion has brought into my life and all the experiences associated, as they say ‘little girls with dreams, become women with vision’.

My full Travel Diaries will be posted in the coming months, featuring London and Paris, for further updates, make sure you follow my Instagram and Facebook!

For our final day in London, we treated ourselves to an extra fancy ‘Mad Hatters’ Tea Party, held at the Sanderson Hotel in beautiful Soho.

The food was decadent and enough to put me into a food coma for days.

For this occasion, I thought it only fitting to get dressed up and enjoy a pot of freshly brewed Alice in Wonderland themed tea.

As this is only the start of a month long trip, I had to restrain from shopping my way through London (it was hard!), however I succumbed in Zara, picking up this bell-sleeved Blazer and white knit.  I teamed this with classic black shorts and sandal heels for a beautiful sunny day in London.

There is something about walking the streets of another city, you take it slower and look around and at every turned we were greeted with beautiful quaint architecture and charisma.

London, you have been wonderful and I already can’t wait to visit again soon.

For anyone visiting London, I highly recommend the Sanderson for a High Tea with the Mad Hatter and you can be just like Alice, in a Wonderland.

Until next time.

I recently caught up with designers Paul & Georgina Tsiavlis who are behind up and coming fashion brand GEORGY COLLECTION.

Not only was I lucky enough to talk all things fashion, I also got a sneak peak of their collection, which is due to be launching within the coming months.

GEORGY COLLECTION is a mix of class and sophistication – with an edge, ensuring whomever wears their gowns feel beautiful, confident and sexy!

With a strong focus on high-quality design and individual desire to suit your personal style.

Georgina, the designer behind the brand states that ‘At the heart of the collection lies a strong design aesthetic. Contoured lines and structured silhouettes create a signature style that radiates from every intricate stitch and seam. GEORGY COLLECTION designs are bold and confident, and make the women who wear them feel the same.’

Thank you to Paul & Georgina for giving me this exclusive sneak peak, definitely a brand to watch and another exciting addition to the fashion scene in Adelaide.

Stay tuned for the launch of GEORGY COLLECTION.

I’ve teamed up with luxury British Brand Kurtis Paul, specialising in beautifully crafted men’s bags and accessories.

Kurtis Paul aim to bring high quality products to the masses and target a demographic they refer to as ‘The Modern Gentleman’.

Launching in 2015 with their leather collection, since Kurtis Paul have expanded and released their leather accessories and canvas collection, this was only made available recently and is crafted from a luxurious 20oz, super thick canvas. This was chosen to give a harder wearing, higher quality feel.

The brand is big on personalisation, tailoring names to their accessories and giving their products a unique personality.

Kurtis Paul was created for the Modern Gentleman, this is someone who as a sense of purpose, wants to have a positive impact on the world and is motivated and driven to be at their best.   It’s someone who holds themselves in high regards, has a high self worth and is determined to become the best version of himself. Much of his down time is spent on self development and he enjoys the knowledge that is received through reading factual literature. He understands that health is an important aspect of his routine and a health body lets him perform at his best. The modern gentleman has an interest in travel and the experience of different cultures. He knows that it is our differences that make us unique and by studying different cultures he can gain an understanding of peoples motivators and driver, he calls on this knowledge to ensure he helps other gain reach the potential. Helping others is an important aspect of his working manta, he believes that to receive you must first give and he enjoys the satisfaction of helping others.

I had a chat to Lloyd, co-founder over at Kurtis Paul, check out the interview below

Q) What made you want to start Kurtis Paul?

Kurtis Paul was started by two brothers with a desire to express their creativity and was born following many extended periods of travel.

Both Kurtis and I have spent many a day on the road travelling for work and are keen backpackers. It is fair to say we have tried, and tested, many different luggage products. We were intrigued by the lack of quality in the market and were quality was present there was a large price tag associated. It has been our aim, since starting Kurtis Paul to focus on why we do things. For example; we rationalise Kurtis Paul not as a fashion brand but more as a brand who solves the luggage requirements of today’s men.

I believe that starting our design process with the intent on solving a problem leads us to focus more and ensures our products are as good as they can be. For example; our canvas duffle bag comes with both carry handles and shoulder straps (not unusual) but by thinking through how this bag would be used we decided to make all handles removable. The wearer generally has a preference on carry style and in most cases the other handles are redundant. In another example; we know there is an importance to allow backpack straps to be adjustable but became frustrated by how the excess strap was left to dangle. On our recently launched canvas backpack we made a simple alteration so the straps can be tucked away and kept neat.

Q) What would you mark as your biggest success to date?

I think our biggest success is the happiness that starting Kurtis Paul has brought both Kurtis and I. We truly enjoy the work we do and feel this is more valuable than anything else.  As you would probably agree, being creatively minded there is a huge sense of satisfaction that is received by seeing the product of hard work. It is this satisfaction that keeps driving the team to move forward.

Q) Can you describe more about your personality in naming of items, what is the story behind the name(s)?

You will notice all our bags have a name, we consciously chose to inject some personality into each of them and have given them a persona as to how we expect them to be used and for what type of person. For example the canvas collection includes the ‘Arnold Duffle Bag’, ‘Columbus Backpack’ and ‘Donald Beach Bag’.

The persona of each bag was chosen as our way to inject some fun and character into the product range. It goes back to the earlier statement that Kurtis Paul focuses on why we do things. Each bag was designed with a clear vision on how it would be used and the type of person that would enjoy the creations.

The personalities are our articulation of this, we wanted people to read them and think ‘yes, that sounds like me’, we also wanted the persons to act as a motivation.

Self improvement is a huge part of who Kurtis Paul are, we believe that life is one continual journey in which we learn and grow as people. We hoped that our customers would read the personas and it would spark some motivation within them, increase their energy levels and give them some purpose. For example; if you’re using a bag named after Arnold Schwarzenegger your certainly not going to ’take it easy’ next time you’re in the gym…
