Fashion Weekly Magazine has the finger on the pulse for fashion and culture. Last week I enjoyed my first week as brand ambassador while covering local events within Brisbane
Dive into Alluring Aquatic at MAC Pro
I remember my first encounter with make-up. It was more of curiosity than a need. I was about 10 when I visited my Nanna and noticed that she had left her foundation on the bathroom vanity. I placed an oily slick of rose beige on my finger and began to apply. Before long, I resembled a young Edward Sissorhands minus the mascara. From that I realised that even if you’re not a ‘make-uppy’ person, a good foundation and concealer are worth investing in.
Last night I followed the call of the sirens into the depths of MAC Cosmetics at James St, Brisbane for the launch of the Alluring Aquatic range. I stepped into store, where I was greeted with champagne and ridiculously good-looking faces. Guests were invited to try products and have a stylist customise their look. I saw them transform from the weather beaten into their fashion forward selves. Modernising their look and refreshing faces to reveal the underwater goddess in us all.
I am guilty of using the same look all year round and have wanted to be more adventurous with colours, seasons and contouring. This was the perfect opportunity to learn to style tricks and tips with make up and learn why primers are so important, especially in the Australian Climate. Special note to the manager of the store Lauren for introducing me to the Lightful skin care, which has stopped my skin from looking like the Simpson Desert!
My choice for new “must have” items would be “Submerged” Nail Lacquer. It’s a shimmery teal colour that makes a statement when coordinating with my winter style. The luminous eye shadows complement the lacquer just like in the fashion world when shoes match the clutch.
No detail was left out in the Alluring Aquatic range with a limited edition teal packaging, accented with a texturised water droplet finish. Gives an instant impression of a scene set under the sea, nails glisten in aquatic chrome and metallic, as lipstick, lip-gloss and lip pencil dive deep into colour.
Keep an eye out for teal to remain a strong trend this season. For Lorde fans and lipstickaficionados watch out for the collaboration of Lorde with MAC on Pure Heroine, a limited editionlipstick in a deep, rich shade of plum with an amplified finish.

Teneriffe Festival: The Destination For Fashion
On any day Brisbane’s inner city suburb of Teneriffe is rich with a plethora of dining, fashion and historical architecture. Each year the normally blissful tree lined streets of Teneriffe are transformed into a bustling metropolis of historical displays, live music, street markets and a fashion precinct where for over 12 hours visitors had the opportunity to see the best that Teneriffe has to offer.
Emerge Australia curated the annual Teneriffe Fashion Precinct.
Local and international fashion designers, avant-garde hair stylists, encompassed in seven individual runway events, showcased latest fashiontrends. Accessories, Shoes and Bags, Emerging Designers, Swim and Resort Wear, Woolmark and Winter, Sustainable Styling and Avant Garde Hair and Make-up and the finale; Designers and Boutiques.
The runway was set up in the way of a whimsical outdoor garden terrace. Complete with a turfed catwalk, white chairs, umbrellas and a white picket fence. The jaw-droppingly-beautiful muses fromDally Models paced the runway as patrons gasped at the shoes, make-up and of course, the outfits.
Anessa Jai The Label was amongst the emerging designers, with a play on fabrics and textures to create garments inspired by the lines and reflections of a kaleidoscope. The fearless and striking, metallic and geometric ready-to-wear line was a stand out style on the runway.
Some of the nations best labels, fashion designers and up market retailers hail from Brisbane. The Designers and boutiques line up showcased the best of Brisbane’s fashion culture andstyle. Notably Atelier delivered precise tailoring, strong silhouettes and sophistication in the form of street style with a focus on texture. Leather, cotton are paired together in a mostly monochromatic palette with the presence of sequins, silks and knits. Feature colours punctuate the range giving it a strong urban luxe style overall.
Tengdahl’s style was unwavering with award-winning designs that reinforced the high standard show. Hand made in Brisbane, The Dally Models captured the essence of the luxurious label. From leisure and corporate wear through to cocktail and evening.
Fashion Weekly Magazine would like to thank Emerge Australia and Teneriffe Festival and all involved for presenting current fashion trends in Australia in a way that supports local designers, of which who have all embraced fashion and style in a way that gives insight to BrisbaneFashion Week and The Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival.
