Aurelio Costarella always has beautiful shows because of his attention to detail. Lots of texture and as always, it was very feminine. Long dresses, sequins, bling with models emerging from a cloudy backstage (aka smoke machine).
But only for the first 15 minutes. Dan Single was looking for me because his Mum was trying to watch the live stream at home, luckily I was hiding in a dark corner on the phone rebooting the server. Thank god Ksubi is always running late, so we got the whole show BOOM!
Three days before the Ksubi 2012 show with Stylist, Christine Centenera.
What’s your favourite piece? Right now it would be a couture corset encrusted with raffia and bead embellishment with exaggerated peplum in ivory tones. My fave piece changes almost daily as I’m seeing new pieces materialise over the weeks. This is the most exciting time during the evolution of a collection.
What’s the best compliment you’ve ever received? Cate Blanchett coming back stage to congratulate me after my 2000 fashion week debut show and then naming my collection a highlight of the week. It doesn’t get much better than that.
If you like blue, you’ll be very happy this season in Gary Bigeni. The leathers looked soft like butter, and melted into the silks and sheer knits. This season there was structure to his usual drape and bags to match the blue and caramel tones.

My front row partner in crime, Miranda Otto & I loved this sweater.
There was an energy backstage because it was the first show. It was like the eye of the storm: everyone saying hi to each other, getting ready for the week, suppressed excitement and an odd calm as it all began.
