FASHFEST night three details

I took my Mum to FASHFEST last night and thought I'd focus in on the details for night three! There was a huge amount of variety of designs including boxing gloves, lingerie and race wear.

Illusory showed sculptural pieces with tough embellishments and statement shoulders, and the makeup artists really outdid themselves on this one, splashing psychedelic rainbow rainbow swirls across the model's faces.

MAK were on the complete opposite end of the scale with billowy silky separates in neutral colours. This was my favourite show for the night, all the pieces were so wearable and looked perfect for lying in a field of daisies and just generally projecting an aloof nymph-like vibe! The natural peachy pinks and cat eyes in the make up looks complemented the pieces so beautifully, and the models' hair was pulled up into messy top knots to keep things interesting...

Bird Keepers showed relaxed corporate-style dresses and separates, with some of my favourite pieces being the loose-fit silky shirts. I also really loved the hair styling for this show, and I'm suddenly super keen to try out a dispelled pony with a simple white tie!

What were your favourites from night three?

Tonight is closing night and there are still some tickets available at, get amongst it for the big finale!


  1. Love illusory - the slightly-different style and amazing make-up. The first model shown here - exquisite face: eyes, mouth - and good to see not all models are stick-thin. Great show.

  2. Where can I learn to do makeup like that? That is incredible!

    1. From what I can gather, many of the makeup artists who worked on this show trained (or still in training) at CMA in Mitchell.
