Fashion: {LMFF} Frankie & the rest

The saying goes like this, all the good things must come to an end. This will be the last post on LMFF 2012. The pictures that you will see on this post are from the Frankie runway show, fashion industry forum, powder room and some random street style shots. I had such a fabulous time at the festival so much so, that I didn't want it to end. I even met a couple of blogger friends along the way! I would definitely love to attend next year's festival! :)

The powder room this year is still as popular as the previous years, if not more. Every time I plan to avoid the long queue to get into the powder room, I fail miserably. I always end up waiting for at least 20 - 30 minutes.  This is when you should be thankful for good friends who share similar interest as you do. Lucky me, I always have Cheryl to accompany me to such events.

Braids are still very popular this year, fish tail in particular. On the Frankie runway, the models had messy, more elaborated fish tail braids. In the powder room, there were 3 hairstylists working on the visitor's hair in order for them to have similar hairstyles to those of the runway.

Last year I had my hair braided and I loved how it look, so I opted for the same this year.

Oh, hello there!
However, I can't express the same love for this year's styling on my hair. The chunky braid looked so out of place on my head and I had a loose braid end on the left side of my head, which looked totally odd. 

This year there was also a Berlei bra fitting kiosk for you to get your bra size fitted. Inside, you can munch on finger food and have a sip of champagne while waiting for your turn to get fitted. Of course, there's a goodie bag for you after the fitting.

The LMFF Fashion Industry Forum was an eye opener for me. It was my first time attending a fashion forum and I must say, it was very informational and surprisingly enjoyable. Unfortunately, I could only attend one out of the three forums they had.

The founders of Fashion Torque just so happened to sit right next to me. They were such nice individuals and it was lovely meeting them.

Favourite quote from the forum was by Adam Ferrier (consumer psychologist) :"To succeed in business is to succeed in changing behaviour".

Here are some street style snaps that I managed to capture. This fashionable lady below caught my eye not once but twice and on different days. Her outfit the next day was a lime green cape which I thought looked fantastic on her! Wish I knew who she was.

I bumped into the fashionable duo behind during LMFF. Both of them are always wearing the trendiest and beautiful designer pieces which I am always so envious of. Thom is wearing Lisa Ho's floral blazer, which was such a hit and Lisa is wearing Mary Katrantzou for Topshop dress, which is now sold out Australia wide.

Last but not least, look at all the goodie bags I gathered from LMFF! They are still sitting in a bag being chucked away at one corner in my room.

I hope you've enjoyed all my LMFF blog posts this year. I would love to hear your thoughts on this year's festival. Leave me a comment below. :)

Have a fabulous Easter weekend everyone!
