And so it begins. The non-stop flurry that is Loreal Melbourne Fashion Festival. I already feel completely sleep-deprived, behind in my work and like I have a billion blog posts I need to write. And it’s only day two. Even though the program hasn’t officially launched, last night was the begin of my festivities with the premiere of the ‘No Home‘ film and fashion event at ACMI.
From here on in, my words become a mixture of incoherent ramblings and mess, because I’ve used up any literary ability I may have once had, in the pieces I’ve forwarded to Spook magazine as coverage for the event. So until that is published, you’ll have to trust me when I simply say, IT WAS GOOD.
It was really good actually, and my heart soared through the sky just a wee little, when Chase’s film for SOSUME aired on the big screen. The celebratory champagne was flowing rather freely and I distinctly remember a fuzzy feeling of pride and happiness for the guy who sleeps next to me, rides his bike to 7/11 to get me Nurofen at midnight when I have a headache, and takes ten thousand ridiculous photos of me in various outfits for “my blog”, even when there’s a million more fun things he could be doing. So, well done Chase, the night was truly yours.

All of the films were interesting and unique, and the whole event was enjoyable to watch. It was also really nice to briefly bump into two of my all-time fave bloggers Alicia (Sea of Ghosts) and Jamie (Oh Jamie) during the course of the night.
This morning was the Spirit of the Black Dress cultural event which meant an early start (for a person not used to rising before 8am, this was rather painful) but that in itself is another blog post.
I also just want to quickly say hello and thank you to Catty Fox from Adelaide’s Rip It Up magazine for this feature that was published about Twin Cat Vintage last week. Thankyouthankyouthankyouthankyou! =)
