I have been to Sumo Salad for lunch many times while shopping at my local Westfield shopping centre, but I usually chose a salad from their menu or a wrap. I hadn’t really thought about customizing my own salad, so it was great creating ‘My Sumo’ salad and being able to add only the ingredients that I wanted! The My Sumo salad I created is below.

Westfield Geelong Fashion Festival- AW 2013

Last week, I attended the Westfield Geelong Fashion festival. The four day event (April 18-21) showcased the current season’s fashion trends, with runway shows on Friday and Styling workshops on Saturday. Also on offer were free one on one style sessions and express ‘mini’ make overs at The Body Shop.

I only attended on Friday and Saturday, as they were the ‘main’ days. I booked VIP seats for both days, for Runway one (fashions from different Westfield retailers) and the first styling workshop, hosted by Renee Enright and special guest WAG, Emma Clapham.

AW13 Fashion Trends

I won’t go into great detail because I have a few posts planned featuring some of them, so I will just list them and give a brief description of each.

Lace- While not a trend on it’s own, lace features in two of the season’s key trends. Gothic Romance (think a little ‘dark’, but also feminine) and Pretty Cool (a mix of pretty peices and tougher/edgier pieces).
Florals- Unlike bright spring florals from last year, Autumn/Winter florals are more vintage-inspired, with darker backgrounds and woven-style, heavier materials.
Leather- Be it the real deal or not, I would say that leather is one of the more prominent trends. Pants, skirts or only as ‘accents’, there are leather pieces to suit different styles.
Baroque- My mum asked me what ‘Baroque’ is, I described it to her as a print you would see on Victorian style fabric (drapes, lounge chairs, cushions etc.) elegant, intricate and embelished (normally in gold or other metallic threads).

Just as the runway was finishing, a lady was giving out mini red velvet cupcakes from The Cupcake Bakery, yum!

Westfield Geelong Fashion Festival AW13- Style Workshop with Renee Enright and Emma Clapham

I noticed that skinny belts and blazers with 3/4 sleeves are two of the trends that have been carried over from Summer into Autumn/Winter, perfect examples of transeasonal items. Belts you can buy cheap and they can last for quite a while, but if you want a blazer that will last for a few seasons, it’s a good idea to ‘invest’ in something sturdier.

Leather can be a trend that a lot of people are afraid to try, but there are a few options available to suit people’s  different style and comfort levels! For the bold, leather pants or skirts look great teamed with a white shirt or blouse. For the not-so bold, there are jackets and blazers with Leather lapels or skirts that have a (faux) leather ‘trim’ at the bottom (like the one below)
