A people's fashion night by VOGUE! Well why not and if there was going to be a People's VOGUE Fashion's Night Out I think Sydney is a great place for it. Lets face it, in Sydney we are all a bit equally snobby which puts us all more-or-less on an equal playing field - and once you get over going naked, well its time to think about what you are going to wear - and what what you wear says about YOU!
So thank god that while doing a tour-of-duty last week on Diesel Island I noticed my poor-old much-loved Stetson 'Open Road' was no longer saying the right things about me... Fortunately the Gentlemen at Strand Hatters were able to fit me for a new Australian Akubra 'Squatter' (appropriate or what) hat which is a lovely new grey Fedora which you can see Pete putting a final spit and polish on in a picture below.
But my hat problem was and is in no way unique. And hats for men are really the same as handbags for the ladies, one is never enough! Or shoes or jewelry or skirts or dresses or anything that is fun and looks good and makes you feel like a million dollars. And there is NOTHING wrong with feeling like a million dollars at all, in fact I think if we were all walking around feeling like a million dollars the world would be a much better, much happier place indeed.
So thank you very much VOGUE for getting so many people out doing what is good for them, putting some money back into the economy and getting them looking good!
Thanks to VOGUE, Canturi for the Gelato and Jewels, Strand Hatters, Laurent-Perrier for the lovely drinkies, Mulberry (where I ran into friend Miranda Otto whom I have not seen in person for many years), CK and their Orange Mango Vodka, all the DJs DJaying and all the lovely people I met during the evening; thanks for making Fashion in Sydney what it is.
Thanks to OMEGA for their lovely hospitality and sweet Ladymatic goodie bag.
Lets do it all again soon!
