The last thing a girl wants to hear on her way out the door to attend a fashion show is “your outfit makes you look like you are a band member from Kiss”. Thank you dear husband for your brutal honesty and way with words. Either way I stubbornly soldiered on and embraced this not-so-subtle metallic cape because where else can you wear such a statement if not to a fashion showing?

The show I was off to was the inaugural Local Fashion Trail hosted at Lucky’s Bar in the QT Hotel – A warm, cosy speakeasy with a not-so-secret entrance. Local independent fashion retailers Gertrude Boutique, Mussen, Pink Ink and Eye Candy Optical were the first to showcase their take on upcoming trends and the event attracted Canberra’s most fashionable who were certainly out in force on a cold Winters night.
The Local Fashion Trail will continue to be held quarterly to showcase Canberra’s local fashion retail boutiques.
