Well I timed my move to Sydney well, I had not even been here for a week before I found myself backstage and front row at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia 2013. I was fortunate enough to be invited backstage by the gorgeous Kristy Lawrence (Flannel designer) and take these snaps of all the backstage prep.
It was quite an organised and calm atmosphere, and the models were all fresh-faced with sponged coral lips and hair softly pulled back into half-done plaits.
Most of the prep was focused on the thigh-high, lace-up gladiator sandals and getting them threaded on volunteers before models, balancing carefully, stepped each foot into the web of laces for the final threading.
Flannel's Spring/Summer 13 collection was beautifully understated with effortless silhouettes and, as usual Kristy selected exquisite fabrics and created refined embellishments.
