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. View Post
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. View Post
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.
