This year is the first year under the new name of MBFWA and it seems what I thought would be a bit of a mouthful to say is dashing around in hashtags all over the blogosphere. Interesting to note that there are no Kiwi designers on the show list this year but a contingent of media, crew and models have made the journey to cover/support MBFWA.
My list of who you should be following on Twitter for up to the minute commentary:
Patty Huntington - Fashion journalist royalty and trend setter (Frockwriter)
Bryan Boy - A blogger who needs NO introduction - purely the reason I fell in love with the internet (Bryan Boy)
Candice Lake - Street style photographerHelen Lee - Fashion and beauty junkie at Sassybella
Matt Jordan - Following this fashion man is guaranteed entertainment..
Katherine Lowe - Dumpling lover / Blogger from Auckland (Katherine Is Awesome)
Julie Roulston - Social media manager for New Zealand Fashion Week
Alicia Hannah Naomi - Jewelery designer/ Blogger from Melbourne (SeaOfGhosts)
Nicole Warne - Owner of Garry Pepper Vintage and contributor to Fellt (and total babe)
Richard Kavanagh - Hair guru from New Zealand
Selena Battersby - Editor of Attitude magazine
Lorena Mercado - A delightful bundle of colour (Modern Things)
Evelen Ebrey - Freelance fashion journalist (Just So Pretty)
Nadia Bailey - Blogger (Animal Orchestra)
Emily Fang - Blogger (Little Black Book)
There will be a trillion names I have left of the list so I'll try to update as I remember *:-)
And the shows I am looking forward to seeing coverage of? Romance Was Born, Gary Bigeni, Kirrily Johnston, Miss Unkon, Magdelena Velevska, Lisa Ho, Ellery and the New Generation collections.
Writing this post has made me realize just how many amazing people I will miss this week... Big love to all my fashiony friends in Sydney this week!
