My adventures at Australian Fashion Week 2017!

What a fabulous showcase! I attended Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week 2017 in Sydney and had a ball as your trusty Man on the Scene. I was there to uncover the new trends of the Resort season, reporting for my own stylish Mr Fashion Man network and for New Zealand’s #1 Fashion website Plus, it’s a fantastic event to network with the world’s top fashion media and bloggers. Let’s take a look at my adventures with links through to my stylish reports.
