Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival Sydney is your ticket to the trends! Be front row and fabulous to see the latest Spring/Summer collections on the runway.

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival Sydney is a schedule of fashion events showcasing the contemporary Spring Summer Collections of Australia’s leading designer brands and retailers as these collections land in store.

The Festival hub is at the Sydney Town Hall and a satellite schedule of events takes place throughout the city. Be a part of live photo shoots, special bar and restaurant events, fashion film nights, beauty trend consultations and industry talks in this festival of fashion and culture.

So much excitement around as I was walking up the stairs of the Town Hall. I was the lucky winner of a VIP experience which I won through Facebook via Flowers For a VagobOnd's page. Part of the experience was to meet the designer himself, Toby Maclean. 

Very excited to meet him and to see his beautiful designs showing at the show that evening.

Upon my arrival I was greeted by Ellissa by Oomph Media and then introduced to Toby Maclean.

It was such a pleasure to meet them both especially Toby Maclean. He was a very sweet person. I was treated really well and was made sure I was taken care of.

I was treated to some VIP treatment at the VIP bar before the show started and then made my way to the show with exceptionally great seats.

There were many fabulous pieces on show. I have taken snap shot of a few that I really loved.

Lots of pastels and fluoros were in almost all collections. I cannot wait till summer is here!


The whole show went for about an hour. The finale was amazing with Akira taking amaze to a whole new level.

Back down to the Fashion hub is where all the action was.  I headed straight to the Redken hub and received one on one hair consult, followed by a bundle of goodies for my hair.

HP had a fun set-up, table full of fancy dress to pick from and then have our photos taken. We were rewarded with a nifty laptop cover. Totally love mine.

Maybelline had a lip station where you were able to get touch ups and I was given this.

In the VIP lounge there were unlimited amounts of alcohol, Sanpellegrino sparkling fruit drinks and Aqua Panna. Every so often a tray of yummy canapes came out. 

When I left I collected my goodie bag and went home for the evening.  Had such a great evening, slightly light headed but all good.

Till next time

After extensive industry experience, sourcing inspiration from his global adventures and securing Australian and overseas manufacturers, Toby launched his own signature label ‘flowers For a VagabOnd’ in 2010 at Rosemount Australian Fashion Week. Focusing on a unique style and an Avant-garde cut, flowers For a VagabOnd is quickly becoming ‘the one to watch’ after their 1st solo show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia.
