Fashion Weekend Sydney, 2011 - Shopping Heaven

Did you go along to Fashion Weekend Sydney?

I did - and it was shopping/fashion nirvana.

Montarna McDonald (if you are fashion-obsessed, you should really be following her on Twitter at @IntersectionPad) gave Josie's Juice a run-down, complete with fab pics, on what went down at the best open-to-the-public fashion mecca event.

"The four day fashion extravaganza that is Fashion Weekend Sydney saw incredible bargains from your favourite designers, as well as runway shows, luscious pampering and mini makeovers – it truly was the ultimate girly day out!

"Stylish shoppers who came snapped themselves up numerous purchase’s at amazing discounts of up to 70% off from fantastic designers including; Nicola Finetti, Fleur Wood, Little Joe Woman, camilla and marc, Natasha, Something Else and Life with Bird just to name a few. The catwalk shows ran throughout the event showcased both new and favourite styles from the designers’ collections in one group show, highlighting the best of what the sale had to offer.

"And to top the experience off NP set were providing mini makeovers and Tony&Guy were there to fix any of your hair problems for a tiny fee of $10.00 PLUS as if that wasn’t enough Essie was there to give your hands a pampering and fix any chipped nails shoppers may have had. And in a perfect finish to the shopping experience shoppers were treated to a complimentary glass of Tempus Two at the wine bar.

"This year’s Fashion Weekend Sydney was truly bigger and better than ever, we look forward to seeing you all again next year!"

As a guest on the Friday night at the media VIP lounge (think delicious Italian antipasto and Tempus Two Moscato - my new fave drop), I thoroughly enjoyed my first foray to the event. After downing some delicacies, it was time to shop. I was rather overwhelmed with the choice - so much so, next time I am allocating more to shop up a storm. I did pretty fab, though - scored a too-divine leather cuff from PeepToe (and a gorgeous yellow jewel-encrusted PeepToe bangle) and not forgetting the famed Sweaty Betty gift bag, so choc-ful with goodies (a Rae Morris beauty book, LaSenza undies, HotMilk undies [don't care if they are maternity duds - they're hawt], Voodoo hosiery, Lindt choccie, Modelco and Face of Australia cosmetics, and much more.

Will I be back at next year's Fashion Weekend Sydney? You betcha!
