What do you love about MBFWA and how does it compare to international fashion weeks?
I love MBFWA because it showcases the extraordinary talent we have here. I also love it because it is one of the few events where the whole industry gets together.
What are you expecting from the sass & bide show & their return to the MBFWA schedule?
I am very excited for sass & bides return to the runway. I have worn sass & bide since my teenage years, so the brand is very close to my heart. I know they will put on an amazing show. I am actually not sure what to expect, but that is the fun part about it!
How do you plan your week and style for MBFWA?
I am actually not a planner. I gather all my favourite pieces from my favourite designers and throw together an outfit the morning of. If I plan an outfit, I swear it never works out. So, I just go with the flow!
What’s a typical week for you at fashion week, and how do you keep your energy up?
A typical week of fashion week consists of runway shows, presentations, meetings, a lot of caffeine, a few wines and grabbing whatever food I can on the run. It is go-go-go, but very fun! For energy I always have snacks in my bag, a coffee in my hand and a wine if night.
Brooke's Fashion Week Diary:
9AM - Heading in for the first show of the day (maybe second). Coffee in hand.
11AM - Running late from the 10 o-clock show!
2PM - Finishing up at an intimate lunch for a designer.
5PM - Posting images on social from the day whilst hanging at the bar on-site. Wine in hand.
9PM - Sitting down at a dinner event. My feet are enjoying the fact they get a rest.
1AM - Finally getting into bed. 6 more hours and I will be doing it all again.
Brooke will be posting via Instagram directly from the sass & bide runway Monday 15th May
