Talia Berman P.E Nation

How would you describe the set up for the P.E Nation Fashion show?

I would describe the P.E Nation show as levels. Lots of levels. I really loved the way they decided to show their collection in a theatrical way! The set was very dark and mysterious and the music was awesome- I think it really set the tone of the show which was to show girls hanging out, in their activewear. Super cool. I liked that we were on a sort of podium above the audience. I think it really added to the drama and mystery of it all.

What’s do you love about Mercedes Benz Fashion Week?

I love the energy of Fashion Week! It’s really fun to hang out with all the Chic girls backstage and you meet heaps of different people. I also love being a part of being able to see the joy that the designers have when their vision and the collection they’ve slaved over comes to life on the runway. They work so hard so it’s really nice to see them happy and proud of the final result.

How long have you been modelling for?

I’ve been modelling since I was about 16- so 3 years now, but I didn’t work much during school because that had to be my priority and I had to work really hard for it. So my first year properly working full time was last year- it was the best year of my life for so many reasons :)

Other than this, I’m currently in my first year of university so that takes up a lot of my time… I do enjoy it though. I also play netball and I love getting the chance to hang out with my friends- everyone’s super busy, so any moments I get to spend with them are really special.

Jennifer Gillmore P.E Nation

What was it like being on a runway with an installation set up?

It was a different experience being involved in an installation rather than runway set up. It felt more interactive with the audience, as they were walking around us rather than the other way around. P. E. Nation knows how to put on a cool show. They did it very well.

What were you wearing for P.E Nation?

I was wearing an oversized black, red and white active wear jumper and three-quarter pants that suited my seated positioning on the installation.

What is your favourite thing about Mercedes Benz Fashion Week?

MBFWA collectively inspires and motivates those involved to express themselves creatively. I love the week because I get to see all my best mates doing what we all love.

Backstage at Dion Lee Resort 2017 | Stephanie Joy Field Chic Quick Questions

Stephanie Joy Field talks to us about her arrival back in Australia, Dion Lee & walking for a total of 19 shows at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia.

Chic Quick Questions below film.

Stephanie & Chic girls backstage at Dion Lee Resort 2017.
 

How does it feel to be back in Sydney for Fashion Week?

It feels so amazing to be back in Australia surprising the Australian designers for Fashion Week. It’s also amazing to catch up with everyone back in Australia. It is relaxing but extremely busy at the same time – I guess you find it more relaxing because you have a closer relationship with the clients here.

 

What was the first thing you did when you touched down?

The first thing I did when I got back to Australia was give my Mum and Dad a big hug (they picked me up from the airport). Then I went home; had a shower and then put on my workout gear, walked up to ‘FLATWHITE’ cafe and had breakfast with my parents – it’s the best cafe ever!!

 

What are you wearing in Dion Lee’s show?

I wore this lemon yellow silk yellow dress; it was so beautiful but very simple at the same time.

 

What would you describe as your street style for Fashion Week ?

I guess my ‘street style’ changes day to day. Some days I wore high end designers and then the days I was more chilled. I guess that my style is very versatile and I just throw things together and hope that they are ‘farshion’.

 

How many shows have you done during Fashion Week?

I was told that I ended up with a total of 19 shows at the end of the week. I am very proud of my achievements and being able to psychically fit that many shows in – I have my agency to thank for all the amazing shows I did though.

Chic Girls at Alice McCall Resort 2017 | Quick Questions with Hazel Crew

Chic Quick Questions with Hazel Crew as she recaps walking for Alice McCall’s Resort 2017 show last week. Chic girls Yaya Deng, Lydia Collins, Emily Jean, Avril Alexander, Bridget Hollitt, Paulina Grochowina & Tallulah Morton also walked for the collection.

What did you love most about modelling for Alice McCall’s Resort 2017 show?

What I really loved about doing Alice McCall’s Resort 2017 show was that it wasn’t a show at all! I liked that people got to see how the clothes are truly meant to be worn.

 

What do you like about being in Australia?

What I like most about Australia is the culture. It kind of reminds me of home in the US at times, but then it’s also completely different.

 

Who has been your Chic buddy around most of the shows?

My Chic buddy has definitely been Jessica Anderson. We live together and hardly spend a moment apart. I would come back again to see her. :)

 

What was your favourite day of the week?

My favourite day was probably Friday. It felt so good to have accomplished a crazy busy Fashion Week!

Chic Girls at Romance Was Born Resort 2017 | Chic Quick Questions With Paulina


The beautiful Paulina Grochowina sits down with Chic Management to talk over her week of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week and walking for Romance Was Born’s Resort 2017 collection. Roberta Pecoraro and Jade Burton also danced the characters of the show.

What were you wearing for Romance Was Born?

I was wearing something like a luxurious silk pyjama set in a print of blue and yellow ostrich plumes, and a beautiful bralet. This, together with the hair & makeup and rosary beads reminded me of Madonna en vogue/ Louis 16th era / Hunger Games.

 

What was the most exciting part of the show?

I loved the way each outfit seemed to draw out the various characters in each of the models. As far as we were concerned, the performance began long before the show had even started. We had a great time backstage playing the part for each other.

The finale was also great fun – basically a continuation of our backstage antics. We laughed a lot and enjoyed the beautiful surroundings at Carthona.

 

What was your favourite outfit from Romance Was Born?

This may sound very cliched but it was impossible to have favourites. Each piece was so extraordinary. It would be like having to choose from an assortment of chocolate truffles. Having said that, I really liked how the light blue underwater flapper dress looked against Mary’s ebony skin.

 

What are the best things about living in Sydney?

I live very centrally, so I can walk pretty much to most of my castings which is great since I love to explore cities by foot.

 

How did you wind down after a week of Fashion Week? 

To be honest, after my 4am call times I just lay in bed and trawled the internet for the latest shots from the shows. And pizza.

Chic Girls at Yeojin Bae Resort 2016

When sculpture and architecture appear to be on the lips of most designers, Yeojin Bae provides a softer delicacy to cleanse the harsh palette. Exploring softer hues of blush, red, whites, and green, Bae continues to play on softer feminine elegance in her Resort 2017 collection, transcending wear solely in the warmer climate.

Chic Girls for Georgia Alice Resort 2017

Finding a balance of femininity in typically “masculine” garments can be a tricky algorithm, Georgia Alice provides and education on doing exactly that. Taking both men’s shirting and suiting, undoing it, and putting it back together to skim over the female form was evident in this collection, never failing to include the persistently permeating trend of “undone” dressing.
