Now, I have to admit that when I was approached, I was absolutely shocked. Humbled, of course. But, for the most part, completely shocked.
Let’s be real – I love fashion but I’m no fashion blogger. I leave that to the professionals like Margaret and Sara. Like most, I have those days where I pull out every item in my wardrobe in frustration because I simply don’t know what to wear.
Truth be told, I’m a journalist who studied communications and happens to write about beauty. Still, I don’t deny I can be partial to a midi-length skirt and Céline trio bag.
You see, I can appreciate the beauty in a handcrafted pair of Louboutins equally as well as the satisfaction in finding the perfect grey marle organic cotton t-shirt from H&M for, oh, $5.
So, when I was interviewed recently by Refinery 29 and asked what I think embodies Australian fashion, my immediate response was: “Aussie style is an amalgamation of a relaxed beach chic culture and rural outback areas with a modern and metropolitan urban twist.”
