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.

Benja Harney of Paperform made super cool accessories in the form of superhero armbands. POW!
As the RWB wall descended to reveal a comic book strip meet pop up book, we entered a futuristic void with 70s undertones. It was like watching a fashion show, but with 3D glasses on. This theme translated throughout the entire show, new shapes and forms and so much texture popped out and opened up another story. It was Miranda Otto’s first time to RWB show and she found it an absolute sensation.
