The other day I woke up at 4:30am (yes you read that right) to head into the city for the National Designer Awards at Tiffany & Co. in Melbourne. These awards have launched some of big name Australian designers including Romance Was Born and Josh Goot. This year's finalists were Kathryn Beker, From Britten, Livia Arena, Lui Hon and Michael Lo Sordo. Menswear designer From Britten were announced as the winners and took home the trophy, handy prize money and a buttload of PR.
I was stationed backstage helping steam all the clothing and dressing the models. It was a lot of fun and we got to meet the designers, although we were a bit disappointed that we couldn't go into the store and see the actual event.
It was amazing to be a part of such a prestigious event and so exciting to meet the designers. Congratulations to From Britten and I can only see good things ahead for all these talented designers.
