It is Mercedes Benz Fashion Week and this year there are not as many reality TV types around but on Day One I managed to catch up with Johnny Schembri who won Project Runway Australia. His runway show was packed last night and if you are interested in buying his stuff go to The Iconic as it is on sale now. He talks to me about what is happening for him fashion wise.
Terry Biviano who was one of the highlights on WAG Nation last year talked about how being on the show gave her business a boost and what it was like having the cameras on her. It does not look like we will be seeing her in The Real Housewives of Australia.
Also I popped into the Alex Perry show and you have to wonder how he fits everything in. He is the ultimate energiser bunny. The show had a naughty, elegant school girl vibe about it. However Sarah Murdoch was there wearing an Alex Perry number and supporting his show as was his Project Runway colleague Megan Gale.
Former Australia’s Next Top Model Cassi Van Den Dungen walked in his show as did Amanda Ware. At this stage I have not spotted Montana Cox as there are rumours that she has put on weight, whatever that means in the fashion world.
Alice Burdeau is also there here is a shot of her at the Aurelio Costarella showcase.

Cassi Van Den Dungen has given an exclusive article to the Australian Woman’s Weekly (out Wednesday) about motherhood.
The Herald Sun (pay wall) reports that her baby Drake was born with a cleft lip and palate. He will need surgery to fix it. She also told the magazine it had also been a tough six months for her and her fiance Brad who is nearly ten years older then her.
Cassi was not paid for the interview as she just wanted to highlight the issue of cleft palate something that effect one in 700 children.

Australia’s Next Top Model runner-up Cassi Van Den Dungen would be eligible to star in Teen Mums with news she gave birth to a baby boy.
Cassi who is 19 years old has had a boy with her boyfriend Saul who is 27.
She posted on Facebook:
“YAY my lil man is now in the world so happy to be able to hold him and kiss him and give him cuddles. he’s so strong already trying to lift his head … god i love him”.
I hope Cassi has a lot of support around her as caring for newborn is a tough gig, and as seen on the show she did get cranky alot.
Expect the baby photos to be in OK Magazine as they managed to get the pregnancy story.

In the most unsurprising news of 2011, controversial Australia’s Next Top Model contestant, Cassi Van Den Dungen is pregnant with her fiance Brad Saul’s child.
One face that we won’t be seeing at next week’s Rosemount Australian Fashion Week is 18 year-old Cassi van den Dungen. That’s because van den Dungen is four months pregnant and is taking a year off from modelling. Although suspicions first arose that something was up several days ago, yesterday’s publication of an interview with van den Dungen and her fiancé Brad Saul in the Australian edition ofOK magazine, announcing the pregnancy, appears to have completely flown under the radar – no doubt due to the Royal wedding media frenzy. Van den Dungen managed to keep her pregnancy a secret at last month’s Melbourne Fashion Festival, where these photos (photos on Frockwriter) were taken. No mean feat, considering how body-hugging some of the garments were.
