Take heed of the following, because, another Fashion Week is always just around the corner.

  1. Invest in Gucci shoes. Gucci bag. Gucci shirt. Gucci anything for that matter. Just. Go. Gucci.
  2. Fashion is tardy. You know the saying fashionably late? Well MBFWA gave new meaning to it. No need to run full pelt in Prada to make a show if you’re running behind. Most (read: all) shows were late. Very, late.
  3. It is totally acceptable to wear sneakers. Anywhere.
  4. Don’t lose your pass / ticket / wristband. Security are gnarly. Either that or work on your buttering up skills.
  5. You can pretty much layer anything atop anything and pass off as cool(ish). But still not Margaret Zhang cool.
  6. Christine Centenera still upholds the throne of Australia’s most fancied fashion Queen. The paps were on her well-heeled case more than anyone else, swarming to fashion’s Queen Bee.
  7. Don’t post on social media until show time. Even if you really, really want to. A booming voice will tell you off.
  8. Add a flare or a bell-sleeve and your fashion cred instantly goes up.
  9. Get ready to embrace dirty hair as ponytails ride on in as the hair du jour.
  10. Perfect your best look-away pose and natural-walk-while-I-look-at-my-phone while the street style snoops snap you.
  11. Boomerang is fun. Seriously, fun. Now whip your hair back and forth and make some Insta magic.
  12. Be prepared to embrace some seriously brave fashion choices, that will not attract the opposite sex. In fact, may very well frighten them.
  13. More is more is more. With everything. Anything goes, darling.
  14. Good sunnies are almost as important as a good bag or shoes, but don’t wear them at inside shows. Unless your last name is Wintour.
  15. Don’t forget to eat. And if you do, don’t eye off the models food. They do eat, you know.
  16. And don’t forget to drink water. 13 coffees do not suffice. Headaches will ensue.
  17. When there is an international ‘it’ girl strutting, don’t get too caught up in your Instagram / Snapchat / Periscope and forget to clap. Also, make sure you have enough phone storage. And battery. So when you do get caught up, your phone doesn’t die as soon as she steps out (true story).
  18. On that note – BRING A MOBILE PHONE CHARGER. Snapchat and the like suck the living battery life out of your mobile device.
  19. Be friendly. To PR, to models, to makeup artists, to hairstylists, to volunteers, to waiters. Everyone is nine lattes deep and has bulging, bloodshot eyes too.
  20. Invest in eye drops and red lipstick. The two will take you from drab to fab in the blink of an eye (literally).
  21. The Frow get some seriously good goodie bags. Improve your hustling.
  22. The Aussies do it just as well as the others, and most importantly, aren’t afraid to take risks and have fun. Hey, true blue, we love you and your style.

She also loves a road test, so we send many of the new hair tools that arrive her way (she actually knows how to use them). Have you seen that hair?
