Yesterday morning, I had the pleasure of attending the Net-A-Porter/ Vogue panel event in Sydney city. I was up bright and early as the event started at 8:00am and was held in a stunning rooftop in Surry Hills.
The layout of the venue was an open and modern rooftop with light blue walls. There were gorgeous florals everywhere, a coffee/breakfast cart, a display of the new Net-a-Porter styles and of course the panel room which was in a small ‘hamptons’ style room with light sheer curtains.
As my friend Jess and I arrived, we were greeted with a coffee cup that we could get refilled and a variety of little breakfast snacks. I choose the watermelon and blood orange juice, however; they also had parfaits, quiches, yogurts and avocado toast.
After Jess and I took plenty of photos at the venue, we were greeted in to the panel room where we were surprised with a VIP gift bag that included a bag full of skincare products, the November issue of the Vogue magazine and a gift card to spend at Net-A-Porter.
Edwina McCann, the editor-in-chief of Vogue, and Elizabeth von der Goltz, the buying director of Net-A-Porter hosted the panel and they discussed the fashion industry and empowering emerging designers. The guests that were introduced on the panel were Sandra Sandor the founder of Nanushka, Vanissa Antonious, the founder of Neous and last of all Henrietta Rix and Orlagh Mccloskey who are the founders of Rixo & Rotate. This panel was inspiring for people like me who have a passion to work in the fashion industry and during this panel I learned that these emerging designers have started their careers from the bottom and they have grown their brand into what it is now, purely by hard work and motivation.
Thank you Vogue and Net-A-Porter for hosting an amazing event, it was definitely inspirational and motivational for people who want to have a career in the fashion industry and to learn about new and upcoming designers that have a strong talent for what they do.
Until next time,
