Didn't take that many pics, as it turns out I was not really supposed to be backstage, but hey , what harm could I do. So I just hung back a bit, and well, we sort of already seen most of this collection when it was first shown to us at the fashion week in Sydney back in April, but a nice refresher none the less.
For more pics and a bit more of a story ( becuase I'm such a great writer ) go to the Frockwriter for a bit more

Bl00dy Equipment

me,slightly worried as I'm having equipment issues, this is 8:32am on the first morning of fashion week, one of my quantums was playing up , so was trying to get a back up and Alex Zotos send me up his spare one form Melbourne, buthe had not used it in ages, so the cells had dried up. so here I am 20 minutes before call time trying to get a spare power pack. stressing, what if they don't have one

Roof Top

The view from the hotel roof I checked myself into during fashion week, this shot was taken on the night I checked in , and Iwas so busy, that I did not get the chance to see this again   :-()
