project be styled

Posted in fashion by wideawakethoughts on March 18, 2010

Today I took the longest lunch hour of my life and attended Project Be Style, hosted by Westfield Chermside. Flanked by an army of fashion journalists and members of the local style set, I sharpened my pencil and kept my score card at the ready as final year fashion students from QUT battled it out in style, charged with interpreting key winter trends with new season pieces from stores such as Cue, Sportsgirl and Diva.

The models paraded by our table one by one, each styled in a distinctive theme. From 80’s extravagance to Parisian chic, the student designers had their looks all stitched up.

I cheekily compared notes with a familiar face from across the table; Sara from Harper and Harley. I love meeting fellow bloggers in person and was super excited to introduce myself. This girl has an incredible sense of style.

As the students and models relaxed in the lane way behind the restaurant, Lucy from Westfield let me snap a couple of photos of her. I have a massive style crush on Lucy; she’s off to New York for an internship in a month or so and I have no doubt she will be fabulous. She’s just one of those girls; you know what I mean.
