Sorry for the delayed blog entries. I was cut out from the cyber world while in Broome. Now that I am back in fast-paced Singapore, I am back on track with my blogging, thanks to the ultra high-speed internet connection at home. Perhaps that is why we occasionally need to head to the outbacks to chill and slow down our living pace.
One of the most dramatic fashion show moments for me happened at the Restyle fashion show. My tears flowed non-stop while sitting front row at this groundbreaking show. It was a good thing I was wearing my Ray Bans Aviators.
With Mariella Harvey-Hanrahan, director of Perth Fashion Festival, sitting front row at Restyle.
At the Restyle show, the first segment featured the 10 bloggers who took part in '30 Days of Restyle', an innovative initiative where the 10 local bloggers shopped, styled and modeled the outfits that they bought from 7 selected charities. A perfect illustration to show how one can restyle the wardrobe for less and support the community at the same time.
Louise Momber from Channel 9 hosted the event wearing a $3 dress from the Salvation Army! Proof that you don't need to be rich to be stylish!
I went backstage to congratulate the bloggers for the excellent showcase.
The second segment featured volunteers from the selected charities - Save the Children, Anglicare, DrugARM, Good Samaritans, The Salvation Army, The Red Cross and St Vincent de Paul. Check out the amazing outfits that one can find at the op shops!
The highlight of the show were visually-impaired sisters Erin and Claire and their guide dogs. Watch their pre-show interview for more details.

This is truly one unforgettable show for me. The most heartwarming and touching fashion show ever. PFF broke new grounds by having blind sisters Erin and Claire, and their guide dogs on the runway. A world's first! PFF clearly led the way in giving back to the community through fashion. A refreshing change from the usual glamor and commercialism of international fashion weeks.
