As my friend and I entered (well i hobbled/limped into) the building where it was held it was a little surprising, from the outside it looked small and we thought we would be walking straight into runway area but instead we met a showroom with various stands, a bar and "fashion people". We wondered around taking in the sights and ended up in what I think was the VIP bar area. And although you think it would be glamorous being around all the industry people it was slightly intimidating and we thought it was obvious that we were newbie uni students so soon left to explore the showroom some more. Throughout the time we were in the showroom my friend was urging me to interview some people for the blog but I was way too intimidated, but really I did waste the opportunity especially at the Famous magazine stand. As we walked past the stand one of the ladies manning it called us over to enter their style contest they were running; all you had to do was get your picture taken (see mine below, it is a bit horrid and I look slightly scared) and that the fashion editors from the magazine were there and keen to answer questions but once again I chickened out. Actually during the show I did build courage and thought of a few questions, unfortunately when the show ends you exit a different way and don't go back into the showroom.
Soon after we entered the runway area and were seated. I was quite keen to spot some celebs and eagerly scanned the front row, I did spot Bessie Bardot, Clayton Watson (from Always Greener and Out of the Blue) and Renai Caruso (Out of the Blue). Then the room darkened and the show began, to read more about the actual collections click here. After the show we went through an exit that led us outside the building where we were met with the closest experience of paparazzi I have ever had with photographers and camera crews gathered around the exit. My friend and I were pretty excited to be asked our opinions about the Peter Morrissey show by the Today show, if you are interested in watching it you can see it here, just play the video labelled Peter Morrissey.
So on a whole my experience was pretty enjoyable and I walked away with few goodies, plus 2 seconds of airtime. For any bloggers I would advise that you don't be intimidated and do use the opportunity to interview people and snap some pictures otherwise you'll probably regret it. In terms of what to wear, I definitely didn't feel overdressed so I would say dress up but don't look like you are heading to your school formal. Oh and be 100% sure you can walk in the shoes you choose to wear!
