Who else is excited about Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia (MBFWA 2018) starting next week?! I can’t believe it’s been a year since I was able to take my gorgeous then 6-month old mini-me to his first fashion week at Sydney’s Carriageworks.

My matching little fashionista son thoroughly enjoyed his first show.. I think his love for fashion runs in the family!
Before I start planning for next week’s excitement I thought I’d recap some of my favourite J’adorais looks from MBFWA 2017. Last year I decided to break my previous years’ monochrome look at fashion week (a great way to disguise my then 4-month baby bump). I enjoyed the excuse to get out of my regular casual ‘post-natal’ maternity wear and into bold and colourful styles at MBFWA. I loved playing with colour-blocking, mixing bold bright colours, beautiful patterns and strong power dressing styles. I also loved elevating my look with bold statement accessories.
Above: Colour blocking style in Dion Lee electric blue silk top, Lanvin fuschia pink skirt, Miu Miu boots, YSL bag.
Above: Fun fringing and colour blocking in Alexander McQueen pink fringe top, red pleat Michael Lo Sordo skirt, Christian Louboutin shoes. Above: Power dressing style in Erdem floral print dress, Burberry trench and Zimmermann heels.
This year I’ll be missing my beautiful sister Clarice’s (@brigadeirochoc) company at fashion week as she will be busy taking care of her gorgeous 2 month old daughter back in Adelaide.

The Style Doctors Kash O’Hara and I are looking forward to sharing some of our favourite streetstyle looks and fashion shows from our amazingly talented Australian designers at MBFWA 2018.
Stay tuned for another fun-filled week of fashion at MBFWA 2018, direct from Sydney’s Carriageworks.
