Fashion Week Uncut – Reality Ravings Reporting Live From Fashion Week With Fashion Blogger Frockwriter

You may be wondering what that flashing button is on the right of the blog and it is a link to a collaboration I am doing this week at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia with highly respected journalist and fashion specialist Patty Huntington. Patty has an influential fashion blog called Frockwriter.

Fashion Week Uncut ( is a live blog which will provide an ‘all access’ pass to backstage, front row and the catwalk. This year fashion week has been infiltrated by reality TV personalities behind the scenes, on the catwalk, and in the front row. In fact the highest profile designer there this year is Whitney Port who is a veteran of three reality shows, The Hills, The City and is a judge on the next series of Britains and Ireland’s Next Top Model.

Also the winner of Project Runway Australia, Dylan Cooper is showing along with judge Kirrily Johnson. There will also be a plethora of Australia’s Next Top Model contestants and winners strutting down the catwalk.

And of course Lara Bingle is rumoured to be filming her new reality TV show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week as well.

Then there is always the front row….

Now I realise that not all my readers give a hoot about fashion week, so Injera has kindly agreed to write for the blog this week to ensure there is a steady diet of reality TV news. Also Network Ten kindly did not commence Masterchef Australia until next Sunday.

However if you are into fashion or just like the carnival of big events, it is the biggest fashion event in Australia, come and check it out. 

Our aim is to provide comprehensive “real time” reportage, covering the models, designers and their collections, the celebrities, and the fashion pack.  It will also include left field fashion analysis, interviews and conversation to make it informative and entertaining viewing.

Patty and I are being helped with our coverage by Anthony who is a intern at this blog, and also Anielka who will be photographing the collections and the colour and movement of the week.

“Now I realise that not all my readers give a hoot about fashion week…”

You said it. Say hi to Patsy and Edina for all of us, Raver.

Having this boring fashion stuff on here will only lead to more retro reflections from CB and BDD (aka Peter and Gary or vice versa).
Let’s hope RR will step it up next week with Masterchef otherwise this site is going nowhere and might soon loose the (selfproclaimed?) title of ‘leading reality tv blog’.

Betty Ballsqueezer ,Dutch Courage, Charlotte dawson etc. Not very clever.

Fashion Week – had to be there…

bdd – the most outstanding quote from a commentator on the bull riding last Friday was:
“It’s pretty simple – keep your hand on the rope and stay on top of the bull for 8 seconds.”

Really, is that it!

BDD, not sure what you are trying to say here but Charlotte Dawson has nothing to do with me.

Did you put $10 on Black Caviar on Saturday and have chinese for dinner bdd?

What were the odds?

Love Gai Waterhouse.

The fashion on display at Randwick was pretty impressive last Saturday ,Georgie.
Ch 9 stuffed up the broadcast of Black Caviar’s race, however, they never missed an opportunity to promote The Voice.
No Chinese for me. Can of baked bean proscuitto wraps and watching the encore of The Voice on Sat night..

Yes, Gai Waterhouse is a star.

I’ll give fashion a miss and just take the Mercedes Benz.

When you get back Raver, perhaps you can explain whether this Masaii warrior look (as seen at Fashion Week) will help me to win over Ajay –

I’m even willing to bounce up-and-down manically on a rug whilst projecting mad eyes at her, if you reckon this’d help.

Looking forward to your advice.
