So we've been super slack with our little "Highlights from Fashion Week" posts. Sorry about that, guess we're just not cut out for these things. Blame Blondie, she went home and left me with Bob who is no better at remembering to take pics. Well here's day trios.
Woke up to a not so good feeling. Yep, a few too many creme brulee's and cafe patrons from the night before. Urgh. This is the last day for moi so I had to get my shit together and keep marching on. Stuffed everything in the case, jumped into a cabbie and headed off for some breakfast. Coffee..YES! Down the hatch and straight into AN ODE TO NO ONE showroom. Designer Adi runs through the collection with Bob while I get snap happy on the range. Even managed to get the man himself...I'm sneaky huh!?
Adi....but to you....Mr Adi... (haha clearly talking shit here, too tired, can't think). Where was I? Yes, Adi is one of the sweetest slashie multi tasker in this industry. The dude does everything.
We finished up with Mr Adi and bam bam bam back into the van and in to see the Undergroup girls (showroom/pr). They look after kickass labels like Opening Ceremony, Strummer and Sophomore to name a few. Greer is preggas but still happy to work it for us and runs through the range with Bobbie. Strummer has come a long way in a very short time. Really great to see. Snapped some more shots and spotted a great new jewellery label called Petite Grand. Keep your eyes peeled for the name as it's on the way to VG.
Stummer hats are made for Summer!
Finished up with Greer and had a bit of time for lunchie. My stomach was still feeling weak but grabbing a bite on Crown St really helped out.
Next stop.....CHRONICLES OF NEVER.
Tucked away in the China Heights building is C.O.N. You have to climb fifty stair cases to get there but its definitely worth it. Lucky old Blondie wasn't here, she's always whining about the steps haha.
Chronicles of Never is one of those labels I fear all because it's so good and the range is massive. I mean MASSIVE! You have mainline fashion, shoes, jewellery, accessories, eyewear and a kick arse denim collection. Then to top it off, you also have the diffusion line and it's the same dealio. I really don't know where to start! Lucky I have Bob to help out. Peter runs through the collection and gives us time to have a fiddle with the range. The dude knows his shit so lucky we have him.
Bob flicks through the C.O.N spring/summer 11/12 range.
don't forget the BLACK NOISE WHITE RANGE COMPONENT
...and some killer specs by Graz/C.O.N collaboration. I got my eye on the new Amber colourway. Soooo good.
jewellery was amazing as usual.
keen on some black in the wardrobe?

We finished on time with Chronicles of Never. Wow, now that's a first. Time to head over to meet up with Jae Mills from Commoners Alike. But who do we bump into on the street?? Again!
GRAZ! Yep, dude was stalking me. Hahahah. Nah, Graz is always busy during Sydney Fashion week, more with his music. Anyway, quick chat and we bounced.
Now we didn't get many shots of Jae and his killer range but it was sweet nonetheless. I keep forgetting about the blog (sorry guys, blame Bob haha). So Jae won our hearts over cos somehow the dude telepathically knew we love creme brulees! Yep, he had some from Burke St Bakery (the gold) waiting for us. BFF. Jae's also part of the Black Box boutiques in NZ so we chatted about Stolen Girlfriends Club who we'll be seeing in a couple of weeks time. I had to catch my flight so had to hurry along. The shot below is nicked from the great NZ blog www.isaaclikes.com (great blog!).
Heading home never felt so good. Knackered but RAFW was fun! Missed my Fat Attack and Sidney boy. And yes you too.
