PayPal Melbourne Fashion Festival 2022

I finally had my return to Melbourne Fashion Festival! The PayPal Melbourne Fashion Festival was everything my dreams could have envisioned.

This was the first time I had left the state in 2 years, adrenaline, excitement, anxiety, anticipation, nostalgia were just some of the emotions running through my veins.

Alas, it felt good to be back.

Friday we checked in to the Adelphi Hotel, a boutique hotel in the heart of Melbourne’s laneways. It was the perfect backdrop for our weekend getaway, we had some time before dinner so we headed to Gucci (when in Rome* (*Melbourne)) and then had some champagne in our room whilst we got ready for our first show! But first, we hit up Bar Bambi for dinner and drinks before galivanting off to the Runway 5: First Nations Runway.

Before I get in to the details of the Runway itself, I thought I would share my outfit details, I had one factor I had to make work, which caused limitations.  I had surgery on my right ankle in October last year and therefore I did not have much flexibility (no pun intended) on footwear.  The second factor was to not buy anything new.  As someone who is become increasingly aware and active about our own individual environmentalism impacts, I still battle with wanting something fresh and new as fashion is a huge part of my identity, but I thought this was the perfect occasion to make what I could work with my existing wardrobe.

Of course there are exceptions to all “rules”, and one lust item I had on my list was a Gucci belt, when I do buy something new, I always make sure I can rattle off outfits and occasions this would get wear out of, of course buying something like a Gucci belt, I knew this would be something that I would never part with and is a quality item that would have a permanent place in my wardrobe.

For the Friday night, I wore one of my favourites, a Tartan Maxi Skirt (Zara), with a black turtleneck (Ralph Lauren), paired with my Combat Boots (Steve Madden) and my Gucci Belt (I just couldn’t wait).


The Runway itself was presented on the land of the Wurundjeri and Boon Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation, and exhibited some of the very best, and emerging First Nations Designers, with music by the ever-talented signer-songwriter Maanyung.  I have never felt more overcome with emotions from witnessing a fashion show than I did once the following designers paraded their proudest pieces.

  • MAARA Collective
  • Liandra Swim
  • Yanggurdi
  • Amber Days
  • Ngarru Miimi
  • Kirrikin
  • Wa-Ring


It was a show, I instantly craved more for, and designers that instantly became targets on my radar, if there is one show to go to in an Australian Fashion Festival, it’s one put on by First Nations Designers, their raw talent, cultural history, and pride that flowed through their designs was unlike anything I had every experienced.

And we have only just began.

Saturday, we headed to the Chanel Exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria (more on this in a separate post to come), which naturally transitioned in to lunch at probably one of the best restaurants in Melbourne: Chin Chin.

There was enough food consumed, to have us fuelled for days to come.

That night, we headed to the Closing Ceremony of PayPal Melbourne Fashion Festival 2022, and it did not disappoint.  I decided to bring a bit more colour to tonights look, at was the theme, so I paired my Pink Knit Mini Skirt (Zara) with a Red Knit (Shein) I just love a pink and red moment, with again my Black Combat Boots and black stockings.

Held at the Margaret Court Arena, you could tell it was set to be a theatrical experience. As Melbourne’s’ Fashionable elite entered the ground, you could instantly feel the creative connection binding everyone, it was as if a everyone had received a new lease on their creative life and were bursting to be there.

As we took our places around the court, where some of the greats played, our Australian’ great designers were about to come out to play.  There was no shortage of entertainment by Vera Blue who graced the floor in-between runways, and of course the designers did not disappoint, it was so great to see Designers I have followed for years, in amongst new designers that were truly out to win with their designers, the designers who presented at the Closing Runway were:

  • Carla Zampatti
  • Romance Was Born
  • Mariam Seddiq
  • Paolo Sebastian
  • Strateas Carlucci
  • JasonGrech
  • Cappellazzo
  • Leo Lin
  • Myami


The rest of our Melbourne trip was filled with walking around laneways, good food, good drinks and even better ambiance. I am busting to get to back, what an emergence to return to Melbourne for Fashion Week.

Let’s hope it isn’t too long between visits



What feels like an unimaginable time, on the cusp of when COVID-19 got real in Australia. With the cancellation of some Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival (VAMFF) 2020 events being cancelled.

Fortunately Paolo Sebastian debuted at VAMFF for the first time in the history of it’s 13 years as an Australian Couture Fashion House.

The Spring/Summer 2020 Couture Collection, namely ‘The Passage of Spring’, glided down the Vogue Runway styled by Vogue Fashion Editor: Pip Moroney.

“Closing the Vogue Runway was such an Honour. We have loved making our debut at VAMFF this year” – Paul Vasileff

Unfortunately I was not there to bear witness but at a time when Fashion Festivals return from quarantine, I will be there!

Inspired by Botticelli’s Painting Primavera and illuminating the beauty of spring and the infinite rebirth of nature, this Collection captures the mystique of the three graces and the organic beauty they bestow.

As an allegory to the lush growth of spring, intricate seam-work suggests the formation of petals while voluminous ruffles and soft, floaty swing dresses bring luxury and romance to the collection.  Printed Silk Organza captures the beauty of the Hydrangea Flower, mimicking its degrade hues and unique patterning.

For those (like me) who also didn’t get to attend, you can live vicariously through his new collection available here.



What may have felt like a lifetime a go to us, the hype is still going strong for the Nominees and attendees and myself!

As an avid Academy Award goer, this time of the year always excites me enormously, this year more so getting to experience the buzz LIVE.

Unfortunately, I did not get to actually attend  the Award Ceremony, being at the Hotel Roosevelt whilst E Entertainment were covering the Red Carpet at the Pool was pretty dang exciting.

Between running around the Roosevelt, passing Ryan Seacrest and Blac Chyna (to name a few), to attending the Hotel Roosevelt Oscars After Party my head was spinning – how was this real life, and how  do the people of La La Land experience this daily/monthly/yearly.

From a little girl in Adelaide to covering the Academy’s for my own blog live from the Hotel Roosevelt, my younger self wouldn’t believe this to be true.

Non-the-less it was, now the red carpet has been covered extensively, so I only want to highlight a few of my favourite looks.

Penelope Cruz stunned in Chanel – my favourite look, classic, timeless and compliments her completely)

Leo & Brad – name a more iconic duo, these two at the Oscars 2020 was an iconic moment!

A few red-carpet goers promoted sustainable fashion, by #outfitrepeating, using upcyled and recycled materials and going vintage! I definitely think this trend will only increase for award seasons and it is so exciting to see!

  • Saoirse Ronan in custom Gucci, reported the black part of her dress was repurposed material from her BAFTAs gown which she wore the week before.

  • Elizabeth Banks #outfitrepeated in the iconic  Badgley Mischka dress which she were in 2004!

  • Jane Fonda also #outfitrepeated re-wearing an Elie Saab gown, which she first wore to the Cannes Film Festival in 2014.

  •  Kaitlyn Dever wore  custom-made ethical gowns by Louis Vuitton. Dever wore a red dress made out of eco-responsible silk satin with Swarovski crystals and beads, and $47 red platform heels by Aldo, a climate-neutral brand.

  • And lastly, Mr Phoenix himself donned the same Stella McCartney suit he wore all awards season.

This time round in my coverage, I will highlight my Oscars 2020 look!

Georgy Collection were nice enough to lend me a dress for the occasion. I felt like Marilyn Monroe in my (new – pinch me) Chanel Sunglasses, Vintage Christian Dior Pumps, and Georgy light blue Audrey dress.

It was a true old Hollywood moment, and what better than the Roosevelt for a backdrop.

My full LA LA Land post will be coming soon!

SAFFW 2019


Friday night was the Next-Gen Industry Mixer located at Lucky’s Beach Club, Morphettville Race Course which consisted of industry professionals sharing their insight and advice in to the world of fashion, in the many shapes and forms it takes, whether that be beauty, styling, design or even just the social media world of fashion.

It was an environment where you could feel the energy, the creativity was at an all-time high and there was an air of excitement in the room.

SA was ready for this.

Sunday the SAFFW concluded at Plant4 at Bowden with a Creative Lifestyle Market, where more designers had their time to shine.  After a weekend full of fashionable fun, rest is needed and time to reflect on the inspiration that SAFFW provided.

I had the privilege of being a partner for the SAFFW festivities which included the backstage crew wearing a custom made SAFFW X FF shirt.  I have to say, I had chills seeing the volunteers running around rocking the tee’s.  Also having Fateful Fashion labelled as a partner with my logo on the Media Wall..

All I can say, is I have no doubt next year’s festivities will be bigger and better, SAFFW is sure set to leave its mark of the fashion world in Adelaide and I couldn’t be prouder to be involved!

What a magic 3 days.

VOGUE Fest hit Adelaide on Thursday 17 October, where I attended the GQ X VOGUE Supper Club Dinner at Sean’s Kitchen.

Being the first event of the festivities, energy levels were high and they didn’t budge all weekend.

The dinner hosted fashion lovers from Adelaide and interstate special guests for a night of fine food and insight in to creatives of both the Fashion and Wine industries.

Wine poured from Seppeltsfield’s bottles, excitable chatter echoed the vintage building, VOGUE Festival was here.

Mike Christensen, Editor GQ interviewed Paul Vasileff of Paolo Sebastian and Fiona Donald, Senior Winemaker of Seppeltsfield who shared their tales of challenges in a gender biased field, breaking down stereotypes and passion fuelling commitment which has led to their successes.

If this was any sign of what was to come, I could not wait.

Day two arrived, with the launch in Rundle Mall which brought the city to life. Endless pop-ups filled the Mall with no shortage of things to do and see. I was like a kid in a candy store.

The Friday night saw the MOVERS & SHAKERS X VOICES OF VOGUE Event in Rundle Mall where Stylist Elliot Garnaut and Influencer Rozalia Russian were interviewed by Mike Christensen, which turned in to an effortless conversation filled with charm on how they have turned their dreams in to realities, the social media world itself, trend setting, fashion norms and everything in between.  It was playful and captivating and I was hooked.

Rundle Street too gave way to endless pop-ups, night markets and bars revelling in the energy that was VOGUE.

Day three, the final day I started slowly at the SLOW X VOICES OF VOGUE event where Anny Duff (Good Studios),  Emily Sheahan (SWOP Clothing Exchange & Vintage Fashion), and Margie Woods (Founder and Creative Director – Viktoria + Woods)  were interviewed by Jessica Montague —Deputy Editor, VOGUE on their take on Slow Fashion or more so conscious fashion and how we can all make a stance on being a little more thoughtful when it comes to fashion.

From there I headed to the Mayfair Hotel for a High Tea with Paolo Sebastian.  Every one of Paul’s events I have been to, has left me in awe, this was no exception.  The Mayfair Hotel was decorated in stunning florals which painted the backdrop of Paolo Sebastian’s new ‘Elements’ Collection with Disney for Frozen II. With each dress representing the story of Frozen whilst playing tribute to the elements we are surrounded by.  The high tea was nothing short of decadent, and while we had a private showcase of this new collection which models danced the rooms wearing. Paul shared a rare insight in to his journey, how it began and what the future has in store for Paolo Sebastian.  What Paul has created is a rarity and the talent he possesses is something that should be treasured.

Now keep in mind this was only what I did and saw, for those that attended would know what this event brought to the city, for that didn’t we can only hope it returns 2020!

VAMFF 2019

The other weekend, I was fortunate enough to attend the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival (VAMFF) 2019.

There is something so New York-ish about attending Fashion Weeks, this time around I attended two events, the International Women’s Day Breakfast – presented by Marie Claire and Runway – Presented by Who What Wear.

It was my first time attending the International Women’s Day Breakfast by VAMFF, hosting was Nicky Briger from Marie Claire and there to share their story was the inspiring: Camilla Franks, Miranda Tapsell, Ally Watson, Julia Banks and Asher Keddie.

It was great to hear first-hand from the creative forces and drivers in their field, to hear that everyone goes through and continues to have struggles – may they all be different and the resilience we as women have to not only survive but thrive through challenges.

Friday was my ‘Fashion Day’, which also included a fancy lunch at Jardin Tan held in the Royal Botanical Gardens. (I talk more about food below for all you foodies out there!). My Fashion Friday finished with a Front-Row show and VIP Mercedes Benz Lounge Experience attending the Who What Wear Runway Show held at the Royal Exhibition Building.


  • International Women’s Day Breakfast – presented by Marie Claire
  • Runway – Presented by Who What Wear


  • Ike Jime

Where we started our food journey, creating our own Shannon Bennett restaurant crawl.  A Seafood delight, in a dimly lit, cosy-yet-fancy restaurant, with an industrial feel.  We had the front row seat to the masters at work, showing off their culinary expertise.

The service was outstanding, it felt as if we were the only two there. It’s one of those places you know, as soon as you sit down this won’t be your last time here.

We got taken on a food journey, filled with twists and turns on classic dishes, and show-stopping modern masterpieces.

  • Jardin Tan

In between fashion events, we went to Jardin Tan, located in the Royal Botanical Gardens where we were treated to a Vietnamese lunch in the garden.  Very rustic, yet very Monet. The place, the weather, the wine and the food was nothing short of perfect. Pancakes for lunch anyone?

  • Higher Ground

It’s a mandatory ‘must see’.  We lined up for 35 minutes on a Saturday (which is pretty good, considering the demand).  Every minute was worth it.  The food is top-notch and the coffee.  Wow.  In a warehouse decked with plants, it’s what Instagram dreams are made of.

  • Vue De Monde

By now, you would have seen my posts here and there from my weekend in Melbourne.  On our last night, we took it up a notch and ate a 10 course degustation menu 55 floors up, overlooking Melbourne’s sun setting. Picturesque does not cut it.  It  was an experience of a lifetime and would recommend everyone to have at least once.

Over on Coeliac in the City, you can read the full account of our food antics, with great detail of our experience at Vue De Monde.


Normally, I take my trips to Melbourne as shopping excursions, however this time, I focused more on quality over quantity (I already have a lot of clothes!). I also had a few pieces in mind I really wanted.

  • Michael Kors

I have been after a classic black work bag, sleek and practical.  I walked in to Michael Kors (after surveying every brand online) and fell in love, pictures are to follow on Instagram – stay tuned. I may have also purchased a mint green mini side bag – it was needed!

  • Platypus

Gigi recently brought out her new GIGI X REBOOK Collection, filled with 80s style shoes and bold colours.  I had searched high and low, until finally Platypus in Melbourne had them and they were everything I had imagined and more (yes, I know I am being dramatic over a pair of sneakers, but I take sneaker shopping seriously!).

Until next time Melbourne, as always you have made my dreams come true and I cannot wait to come back.


received_10156373053497118On Sunday 20 April, I was fortunate enough to visit the latest exhibition at the South Australian Art Gallery – Colours of Impressionism – Masterpieces from the Musée D’Orsay.

received_10156373053562118Unfortunately, I never quite made it to Giverny to see Monet’s Garden, it had always been a dream of mine to see his famous Water Lily creation.

The exhibition consisted of artists such as Monet, Renoir, Manet, Morisot, Pissarro and Cézanne as well as many, many more.

It was a rainy Sunday and I was quickly taken back to the streets of Paris, where artists breathe creativity like air.  For this occasion I decided to dress the part.  I recently purchased this shirt/jumper from Forever New which doubles in practicality and wearability – transitioning from work to casual to dressy effortlessly.  I donned this with a black winters’ cap, black boots, my burgundy backpack (again for practicality), completed with my winter staple – my black cape.



I felt at home, wandering around the Art Gallery, getting lost in the works of the most famous artists in history.  It was quite captivating, the sheer detail and simplicity, of each painting yet each had depth that delved deeper with every glance.

I left quite inspired, and dressed like an artiste I was ready to get back in the studio to create!  It also cemented the fact my next trip to Paris would entail a trip to where Monet created my favourite masterpiece.


The exhibition is on until 29 July 2019 – if you haven’t already, I suggest taking some time out and seeing it before it disappears back to France. It’s the perfect Sunday setting, especially if it’s raining outside – what could be better than admiring artwork and grabbing a coffee!

On the 5th March 2018, the Academy Awards turned 90.  An historic event in time, with a focus on the past and the accomplishments we as a society have achieved, and the future – highlighting the important discussion of ‘Times Up’, gender equality, equality for all and the acceptance of imperfections and individuality.

What radiated a sense of community and love, the Academy’s hosted by Jimmy Kimmel was a timeless affair, with timeless fashion.

It’s my favourite time of the year for fashion, it gives the actors and actresses a chance to show off their personality with flare and pure glamour.

There were many desirable looks to choose from, however I have captured a few of my personal favourites.

Margot Robbie


Being a fellow Aussie girl, I am always looking to see her next ‘look’, always looking effortlessly chic topped with a glow, Margot exuded class in this Chanel number.

Emma Stone


I am a massive Emma Stone fan, and she never disappoints, I am in love with her Louis Vuitton pant-suit choice with the touch of red and pink!

Timothée Chalamet 


A bold fashion choice from Timothee, a white-on white Berlutti suit which captures his youth, yet sophistication which best represents his acting style

Gal Gadot


Gal Gadot looking every bit of wonder in this Givenchy gown, sparkling from the inside out, Gal oozes confidence and strength in this eye-catching number.

Meryl Streep


Meryl Streep is never one to disappoint, an all-round Academy winner in Christian Dior.

Lupita Nyong’o
Another Superwoman look, Lupita in Atelier Versace is not one to mess with.

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.

22551515_10155784231912118_987430159_n  22554447_10155784231692118_1607853136_n

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’.

VAMFF 2017


Last Saturday I attended the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival (VAMFF) and I already want to go back!

I started planning my outfit as soon as I bought my tickets and after a lot of umm’s and ahh’s figuring out what to wear I decided to let my new pink Zara statement pants take the lead.  I teamed this with my bell-sleeve crop (Naked Boutique) which was one of the biggest trends by the way, and finished with statement earrings (Sportsgirl) and my beloved Louboutin’s! My bag for the night was a last minute purchase as I got in to Melbourne, my new baby pink backpack (Sportsgirl)– to match my pants of course!

I think I must have tried this outfit on a dozen times in the week leading up, making sure it was the outfit.

Located at the Royal Exhibition Building the beautiful architecture was set amongst array of pre-show activities, bars, photo-booths and a swarm of fashion loving individuals snapping away and taking part in all what VAMFF had to offer.

Before the show started I already felt like I had a massive dose of fashion, one of the major highlights for me (besides the show of course) was the Mirror Mirror Photo-booth, which I have to admit, made me feel a bit like a celebrity – it was so much fun!

Time flew and before we knew it, we headed into the Royal (emphasis on Royal) Exhibition Building where the professionalism of the whole VAMFF event shone. It was hard to believe I was only an hour flight away from home, this event was showcased on an international level!

The show started at 7:30pm as the sun started to set, hundreds formed in and took their place and as the lights went down, the chatter eased off and all eyes were on the runway.

It’s hard for me to pick a standout designer, they all flowed effortlessly and I was mentally adding them to my wardrobe as they waltzed down the runway.

The designers presenting were: Mischa Collection; Thurley; Camilla; BY JOHNNY; White Suede; Zhivago; and Rachel Gilbert.

As the ceremony closed, I got Goosebumps, how lucky was I to have attended this event in the Fashion capital of Australia, it left me longing for more.

The warm autumn weather offered comfort as we left, chatter increased again, this time it was all about the highs of the show.

For anyone who is an avid Fashion lover, or loves a good show, I would HIGHLY recommend getting in early to score your tickets for next years VAMFF, I know I will be.

The 89th Academy Awards is one that will go down in history!

Besides the unfortunate incident, this year La La Land cleaned up! A must see movie and a new favourite of mine, who doesn’t love a Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone collaboration. It was also the most  nominated film in film history and had the youngest Director to win an Academy Award.
And of course there was that moment Leonardo Di Caprio graced the stage to give Emma Stone best actress in a leading role.
Aside from the eventual ceremony the fashion was, lets say ‘Academy’ level with Paul Vasileff dressing two attendees in Paolo Sebastian.

Rosalind Ross, partner of Mel Gibson, wears a pastel nuage Paolo Sebastian French tulle ball gown from the label’s Wildflowers collection, featuring delicate Italian embroidery.


Tony winner, actress and singer Cynthia Erivo is making her Oscars red carpet debut in a couture French lace corseted ball gown with pockets features embroidery from the label’s The Snow Maiden collection, which was inspired by Russian folktales.

Having been named Young Australian of the Year 2017 earlier this year, Paul Vasileff and his label continue to go from strength to strength.

“For someone to choose to wear one of our gowns to the Oscars is an absolute honour,” designer Paul Vasileff said.

“As a South Australian label this is an incredible opportunity to have,” Vasileff said.

Paolo Sebastian previously dressed presenter Giuliana Rancic at the 2014 Oscars, and most recently styled Corinne Foxx, daughter of actor Jamie Foxx, at the 2016 Golden Globes.

Paolo Sebastian previously dressed presenter Giuliana Rancic at the 2014 Oscars, and most recently styled Corinne Foxx, daughter of actor Jamie Foxx, at the 2016 Golden Globes.

The standout for me was the captivating La La Land couple Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone who donned classic Hollywood glamour. Ryan dressed in Gucci and Emma in Givenchy.

Until next year Hollywood.

It’s that time of the year again, where all your dreamiest fairytales come to life in Paris Fashion Week.

In the city of Love & Fashion, designers showcase their best Haute Couture Wear for our eyes to lust over.

Every year there is always one designer that knocks them all out of the park and this year we are giving that special mention to Adelaide’s own Paul Vasileff of Paolo Sebastian.

Paolo Sebastian is showcasing his Gilded Wings Couture Collection  AW16/17 for the first time in Paris, an inspiration and friend he has done it again.  Somehow his imagination has created everything we never realised we wanted.

Paul’s collection is now showing at La Maison Champs Elysees inspired by a Woodland Faery and as Paul said himself “I want my designs to capture the imagination and allow people to dream” and dreaming we are.

Aside from some serious Aussie pride, we can’t skip out on the classics, featuring Christian Dior Haute Couture, Chanel, Elie Saab, Valentino who are giving us major 1920’s vibes and sporting a new spin on suits, which we will be featuring in a new post soon.  These classic designers are taking us far far away to a fantasy land where James Dean picks you up and you’re whisked away to the South of France to an elusive Movie Premier Elizabeth Taylor is starring in, ahhh if only.

It just gets better and better and we can’t get enough!

Canne’s Film Festival has kicked off in France this week and it is all about the fashion.

Each red carpet event brings a new look for celebrities and fashion insiders, it provides them an opportunity to show off a style they couldn’t in their every day life and it gives the viewers something to lust over and a chance to dream.

The general public is fascinated with who wore what and we as fashion lovers, live for moments like these, those who dare to dream with fashion and take a dream of a designer and give it life.

Here are some of our favourite looks, bold, classic and just plain fashionable.

It’s the age of technology and also the theme of this year Met Gala.

It’s the time where the inner fashion freak gets unleashed, Designers get free range and Guests get to show an unlikely side of thier personality.

There are so many ways to keep up to date with who wore what, where they partied and all the goss inbetween, now with various social media streams including live footage from Snapchat giving you major FOMO.

But we thought we would give you a little re-cap on some of our fav looks, those who stole the show and took you to the future of fashion!

Our Adelaide Fashion Festival Weekend ended in the best way possible with front row seats to the new Paolo Sebastian ‘The Snow Maiden’  Autumn/Winter 2016 Collection which was inspired by Slavic Folktales of a Winter Empress.

Where to begin with this collection and better yet this show?

From the props to the faux snow on the ground, down to the lighting and the amazing music collation brought the Snow Maiden to life.

The show started off dim with the instrumental version of Once Upon a December playing in the background opening with a ready to wear long black coat.   From there ti went into all fur looks which included an all fur 50’s inspired dress with long black leather gloves.

We can easily say that was just one of our favourite looks from the show.  It then beautifully transitioned into what Paolo Sebastian is best known for, his unbelievable couture gowns which were exactly that unbelievable.

And once again Paul made what some would consider the impossible, possible.

Sheer, beading, tulle and detailed stitch work are just some of the main forms that made up his gowns. Every time one look came down we couldn’t help but turn and wait to see what beautiful creation was going to follow.  The collection along with the production felt like a dream.  For a moment we forget we were sitting in a marquee in the middle of Adelaide.

Paolo Sebastian took us on an enchanting adventure in a daze of a winter wonderland.  The Adelaide Fashion Festival closed on the highest note and we are honoured to have been able to witness all its glory.

Until next year AFF, we can’t wait!





















Last night was the finale show for this year’s Adelaide Fashion Festival, closing with creative genius Paolo Sebastian and let’s just say he shut it down!

Since it was the last of Adelaide Fashion Festival, we wanted to dress the part.







Keeping it light and fresh and weather appropriate trying to capture that effortless chic cliché – well if you want to get technical it was pretty effortless as we were running around all day we didn’t have much time to pre-plan outfits.

With Georgia opting for a white suit that can basically be worn with anything and Alexis giving us major Blair Waldorf vibes in knitted skirt and chunky jewels.

Georgia & Alexis



Fateful Fashion made their fist appearance together at the Adelaide Fashion Festival attending the Lexi Clothing and AlexisGeorge fashion shows.  It was the best way to begin our fashion festival weekend! The show began with Lexi Clothing which is known for it’s edgy, modern style and that’s exactly what it brought. The colour palette was black and nude and when it was intertwined in one look it worked so well.  The pieces were a fresh take on fashion but instantly became timeless additions we lusted over and need in our wardrobe now.  The overall vibe of the show captured Lexi – confident & dangerous for all those bad girls out there wanting to make a statement.  The show then took a turn in to a wistful wonderland with flowing gowns gracing the runway.  AlexisGeorge still had a risk factor with their sheer take on the new elegant.

It made all the good girls want to be a little bad, because sometimes you need to be a bit dangerous when it comes to fashion.

Georgia Hall Fateful Fashion at NYFW


I know New York Fashion Week may seem like months ago but for us it’s still running through our veins as we recap on all that went down.

We were SO fortunate enough to have been invited this year, unfortunately Alexis’ was off doing wedding stuff so she couldn’t make it so I had to take one for the team and represent Fateful Fashion in the Big Apple.

When we started this blog, we had no idea where it would lead us. Sure we had goals and we  continue to set them but if someone would have said to me 3 years ago that you would be attending the Australian Showcase at New York Fashion Week, I would have responded with a ‘yeah right’.

Well on September 10 2015, one of my biggest dreams came true, and as I got out of the cliché yellow cab at Pier 59 Studio’s a rush of emotions ran through me that almost brought me to tears.

I was living my dream, how lucky am I!!!

Being in New York alone is everything a girl obsessed with fashion lusts over but to be there when Fashion Week commenced, is an experience I will never forget.

As the lights dimmed, I had my camera ready, Kygo started up and out came the Australian pride.

With brands such as  Belluccio, Viktoria Novak, Catherine R Couture, Deborah Selleck Couture, Luom.o, Mae’ Sunday, Nadz & Sabs and When Freddie Met Lilly, Bec & Bridge,  Emma Mulholland X Mambo, Sabo Luxe, Duskii Active, Hunt & Heart, Antonella Ianni, Eder+Berk, Emu Designs, Laguna Sydney, Mauricio Alpizar, Tatiana Light and fellow Adelaide girl Simmone Standing

I felt like a very proud Australian at that moment and I went a little snap happy trying to capture all my favourite garments (which was a lot of them).

We made a pact from the start with New York in our headlights and all we have to say is to the City that never sleeps, no place in the world can compare and New York, we’ll be back.

I apologize we have been a little dormant lately, it’s been a bit of a crazy time travelling around America (can’t complain) but we have a tonne of content coming your way so make sure you’re following us, so you don’t miss out on fashion and fashion and well, more fashion.

Paolo Sebastian – ‘Nightingale’

“The Nightingale sings a song so sweet and true, pale moonlight draped upon her shoulders.”

The amazing couture designer Paolo Sebastian granted us with the his new Spring/ Summer 2015/2016 ‘Nightingale’ collection and it is stunning.

Before beginning to read this post you were able to read the description of his beautiful collection and that alone gives you goosebumps. Mixing in effortless silhouettes with soft colors and creating magical illusions. This collection is a fairytale come true.

In case you missed this year’s 87th Academy Awards, here is a little recap. Neil Patrick Harris was the charming host we all know and love him to be.  Glory was felt by all with the captivating performance of Glory by John Legend and Eddie Redmayne jumped up and down on stage like a child before giving his thanks to all those worthy for taking out Best Actor in a leading role for his character in ‘The Theory of Everything’.

And of course, what we live for, that elegant Red Carpet, here are some of the best looks worn by this year’s attendees.

Oh to be a fly on the wall, or the carpet.

Type 1 Awareness

Yesterday the Charity Group I am involved in – Type 1 Voice, teamed up with Deviation Road Winery and Australian Fashion Labels to help raise awareness on Type 1 Diabetes and also launch a new collaboration between Type 1 Voice and Australian Fashion Labels.

The new collaboration consists of a custom range of dresses where an internal pocket is created to hold the insulin pump discretely within the dress.

Type 1 Diabetes is a subject that’s very close to home. I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes almost 7 years ago, it’s been a roller-coaster ride, with many ups and downs,  I’ve learnt a lot about myself and would not be the person I am today if I didn’t have this disease.  One thing it has done, is open my eyes about helping those around me, I know firsthand how difficult it can be, and if there’s one thing I can do is offer support.

I’m very lucky to have the support I have, It has definitely made the journey a lot easier and that’s what the initiative of Type 1 Voice, to help support people like me in their everyday life, from work to School and University and even to ensure they are getting the right type of support from their medical team.

Thanks to Australian Fashion Labels for their support in this cause and for allowing me to showcase this beautifully structured gingham dress designed by Finders Keepers from their new range.  I teamed it with my Steve Madden wedge navy heels and my new sunnies from Naked Boutique in Rundle Street.

Overall it was an amazing turnout in the picturesque winery Deviation Road and a lot of awareness was raised for a meaningful cause, one that benefits many including myself

Fashion & Fizz


Fateful Fashion are proud to announce their partnership with Australian Fashion Labels & Type 1 Voice for the Fundraiser event held at Deviation Road Winery

The event which will be hosted by Media Presenter Nerida Foord and will benefit Type 1
Voice, a not-for-profit charity that helps raise awareness for those living with type 1 diabetes. The
organisation hopes to help eliminate social stigmas surrounding the condition and help boost the emotional
and physical confidence of those requiring insulin therapy.

“The decision to host a fashion show stems from our strong focus on helping grow self-esteem and
confidence in people living with diabetes,” says Lorraine Pitman, Type 1 Voice founder and chair. “Fashion
is a global statement of how people feel, and people with diabetes need to self-manage publicly every

Besides having Deviation Road Winery in Longwood in the Adelaide Hills as the backdrop for ‘Fashion &
Fizz’, with guests enjoying their premium wines, the winery’s owner and winemaker, Kate Laurie, is personally connected to the cause. Kate was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes herself in 2009 and is a member of Type 1 Voice. It was while dining with friends Melanie and Dean Flintoft, directors of Australian
Fashion Labels, that the opportunities for a fundraiser took form.

“It was at a dinner party with Melanie and Dean [Flintoft] that we really started talking about the restrictions the insulin pump put on people in their fashion choices,” explains Kate.

Kate is also currently in discussions for further collaborations between Australian Fashion Labels and the diabetes community, with the first exciting concept to the launched on the night.

Australian Fashion Labels will present the February ranges from their brands, Cameo, Finders Keepers, Keepsake and The Fifth on the runway for the first time. Local accessories designer Miss Margie will also showcase her newest range of accessories.

‘Fashion & Fizz’ tickets include drinks, nibbles, runway show and silent auction.

Last week was the launch of Frozen Beer Co.  The event was hosted at the Loft Bar, one of Adelaides trendy venues.  People poured in to pour a cup of their first taste of Frozen Beer.

A revolution to the traditional Aussie summer drink, one that won’t melt away as soon as you sit in the sun.  It’s something that you need to try it to believe it.

Imagine to have your favorite beer served consistently cold in this hot summer with a delicious, silky and smooth beer.

It’s a craze that originated in Japan and has since gone on and become a hit in the US, Canada and even France! In the US, frozen beer was introduced to the Dodgers Stadium where baseball fans can enjoy a frozen beer at $11 a pint. Frozen beer can also be enjoyed on a day out at  Walt Disney’s Epcot Theme Park, Bay Lake Florida. In Chicago this year, frozen beer was available at Lagunitas Beer Circus and music festivals.

Frozen Beer Co. has already been causing quite a stir on social media with some of Adelaide’s famous faces having joined together to promote the new product. From the likes of Bollywood actress and model, Lucinda Nicholas, My Kitchen Rule’s Paul Wood, Insta famous Jake Bley, photographer Alex Drewniak, ex-Adelaide Councilor and business man Francis Wong, Finesse Model Madz Ando, Channel ‘s Christina Cavaleri as well as many others.

The event was also filled with Adelaide’s Fashion finest, with photographers snapping away outfit shots all night long where over 350 of Adelaide’s lucky A-list got to have their first taste..

Thank you to everyone involved for kicking off the silly sister with a bang!

For the occasion I wore one of my favorite crop blazers’ by Forever 21, teamed with black high waisted shorts and my trust black heel, an easy comfortable outfit for a perfect summers night in Adelaide City.

Venues/festivals interested in serving frozen beer should contact Frozen Beer Co.

On Friday I had the honor of covering this event for my friend Betty
Samis’ ‘All About Entertainment Page’

Last night was the Official Opening Party for the Adelaide Fashion Festival. The sun was shining as people proudly arrived at Governor’s House, the event kicked off with a speech from the Governor himself (His Excellency Rear Admiral Kevin Scarce) welcoming everyone with an introduction as to what to expect for Adelaide Fashion Festival and thanking everyone for their ongoing support.
The speech was then met with a red carpet fashion parade including pieces by George Gross & Harry Who, who recently celebrated their 40th Anniversary.
For the rest of the night everyone spent walking through some of the stunning rooms at Governors’ House, which were filled with gorgeous Models wearing some of the items we will be seeing in the coming week.
I had the opportunity to talk to the ladies from Bellissimo who were over the moon to be involved in this year’s festival, the look they went for this year was sleek, modern with a hint of rockabilly that fit nicely with the trends for Spring this year. You couldn’t miss this years ‘Face of AFF´(Adelaide Fashion Festival) Lucy Bayet looking drop dead gorgeous in her red sequin gown.
During the night I also caught up with two very popular designers, Paul Vasileff of Paolo Sebastian and Cristine Tridente of Couture + Love + Madness who were also extremely excited for this year’s Fashion Festival which kicks off on the 18th of October with ‘Variety on King William’
Location: King William Road, Hyde Park
Time: 11:45am – 3:30pm
Tickets: $130
Head over to the Adelaide Fashion Festival Facebook page to keep in the loop!
Overall the night was a success with everyone who attended proud to see the local talent and help their visions grow, the love of fashion was definitely in the air and excitement exuded with chatter increasing from the guests who sipped on champagne and were served with exquisite cocktail platter selections.
The hype for this Fashion season is stronger than ever an event not to be missed.

40 Years of Fashion

40 Years of Fashion

Yesterday we celebrated two well respected Designers and Men in Fashion, George Gross & Harry Watt.

The event was held at the Hilton Adelaide, where we enjoyed acts from Tim Campbell, Andrew Desilva & Rachel Leahcar.

We were greeted with champagne to toast Mr George Gross & Harry Watt. There was a slideshow showcasing all their triumphs which included Fashion Weeks in Hong Kong, Paris, New York, London and many more with a highlight that tugged at the heart strings of many – the chance to dress Princess Diana.

They have seen many fashion trends and icons come and go, but one thing that has always remained is their impeccable taste, their love of fashion and their commitment to designing and creating clothes out of top quality fabrics and going that extra mile making sure the cut is perfect.

Not only do they respect each other immensely but their buyers, most of their customers have been loyal since they started their venture in 1973.

40 years on and they still have drive to continue.

Congratulations to both Harry & George on a beautiful and successful fashion journey.

London Men’s Fashion Week SS14

Boy, do we have a lot in store for you this evening, not one, not two, but three straight from the runway clips at the London Men’s Fashion Week.

First up we have Savile Row & St James, showing us how to really wear a suit. Our next stop is to the ever-pleasing Rag & Bone and for the final act, Hackett London bring a very french inspired, semi formal day wear. Which we just love!
