I’ve just spent the last couple of weeks in Melbourne for Melbourne Fashion Week Plus and holy moly, it was an experience and a half! I saw beautiful clothes, I felt a lot of fabric and I met some truly wonderful people. My post-Melbourne blues are setting in, so I thought this would be a good time to share what the MFW+ part of my trip was like. In one word: inspiring. Continue reading
As you all know, I’m a big supporter of Australian and New Zealand fashion. If you’ve been following my blog for a while you will have seen awesome plus size fashion from brands like 17 Sundays, Chocolat, Hope & Harvest, Nyata and Sonsee Woman (to name just a few). Those five labels have something very important in common – they’ll be among the amazing plus size brands hitting the runway next month for Melbourne Fashion Week Plus 2016. Continue reading
I got up bright and early this morning so I could check out the Design Collective for Evans S/S15 Catwalk Show at London Fashion Week. Sadly this doesn’t mean that I am in London – instead I watched the show online (thank goodness for the internet, right?).
Design Collective for Evans brings together a handpicked selection of renowned fashion designers, brand new breakthrough designers, the latest winners of the acclaimed Cut for Evans design competition and our exclusive in house designs. The exclusive catwalk event shows that high fashion is for all.
My sole reason for heading down to Wellington was to attend The Carpenters Daughter’s runway show at Wellington Fashion Week. To some of you this might not be a big deal, you might just be thinking “so Meagan went to another fashion show, whatevs”, but for me it really was more than just another fashion show.
We don’t see plus sized bodies on the catwalk in New Zealand. Like, I’ve never seen a woman over a size 16 on a catwalk here, and I’ve been to a lot of fashion events in my time. We just don’t get shows dedicated to plus size bodies. When I go to events for department stores that stock plus sizes, they often won’t show the plus size lines, or will only show a very very small selection, so to attend an entire show celebrating fashion for curvy babes actually blew my mind.

Last weekend I travelled down to Wellington (our country’s capital) for Wellington Fashion Week. I had an amazing journey and I wanted to share it with you… I took a lot of pictures so get comfortable!
I used to travel to Wellington all the time on business, but it’s been a long time since I had the pleasure of visiting. It’s been five years, and it turns out that my love for this city has not waned one bit.

I have the worst case of FOMO right now. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been dreaming about attending a show dedicated entirely to plus size fashion, and now that it’s actually happening I can’t go!
The Curvy Couture Roadshow is on Sunday the 30th of March 2014, and it’s the first plus size fashion event to be associated with the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival as well as the first event to showcase so many independent Australian plus size designers in one place. Continue reading
It seems like NZFW was ages ago! And I guess it has been a few weeks … my bad. Life just kind of got in the way, and I didn’t have time to even look through my photos from day three and day four of New Zealand Fashion Week! I’m determined to remedy that post haste though, so while I have a spare moment I want to tell you about the New Zealand Fashion Designer group show that I went to on day three.
WRAPPING UP IN … Stellar Wrap Dress from Harlow
I’ve recently rediscovered my love for wrap dresses – as a busty lady, I have to say that they make my boobs look amazing! I love this patterned one from Harlow, these are perfect blues for spring. Grab this dress for AUD $189 here, and be sure to check out Harlow’s spring/summer lookbook. Continue reading
Day two of New Zealand Fashion Week was pretty brief for me – I only attended one show because I had to go to uni classes and submit an assignment (damn uni getting in the way of fashion!). Fortunately, the one show that I did manage to attend was Trelise Cooper and it was awesome!
