One Fell Swoop…Making It Up As You Go (Part 1)

Its been a whirlwind ride for WA Design Duo, One Fell Swoop. Last week, they presented their latest collection, ‘Making It Up As You Go’. The anticipation and build up for this event was huge. So, come behind the scenes, into The Swoops World and share the exciting journey with Nina and Daniel from One Fell Swoop.

The invitation arrives in the mail. WooHoo!!

My first visit to their private Studio. This is where the magic happens. Nina Ergic and Daniel Romanin are hard at work creating their beautifully draped pieces… and I am in my element!!

The week before the parade and The Swoops take time out with Jacqui Brown, for some well deserved French bubbles! As the parade draws near, I’m so thrilled to be part of this amazing journey.

The night before the show…time to calm the nerves and celebrate with the team at the Cottesloe Beach Club. International Model, Bambi, pictured top (R) with her Manager Jaz Daly, have flown into town for the parade. Jacqui gave a heartfelt speech, thanking those involved and wishing Nina and Daniel, the very best for the Parade.

It’s Show Time…nearly!!

The Swoops very kindly let me loose in their closet…a very, veRY, VERY dangerous thing to do!! I simply LOVE their clothes and found so many outfit combinations!! I draped a sheer 3/4, assymmetric tunic with a long-line sheer silk cardi, then a tailored silk blazer and my fave piece, the silk shorties underneath! A fab alternative to a petticoat! Four pieces in total…its all about piecing the layers together. Layer, upon layer upon layer! Voila! Such a lovely, feminine way to dress. My AndAndrea ‘touch’ was the antique silver, choker and necklet.

Its excitement all round as the crowd gathers in the Hay St Mall ready to enter the old cinema in Carillon City. Its been unused since 1983 and is hauntingly beautiful. Just the perfect setting for One Fell Swoop. Time for some pre-show, AndAndrea standouts!

As we waited in the alley way to go inside, there was just enough time to take a few more AndAndrea pics. Top (L) Jaz Daly IMG Models, Top (R) Karen Cheng blogger, Bottom (L) Stylists Emma Bergmeier with Hannah McGrath and Bottom (R) Model and ZaraBrysonShop lovely, Rosie Iffla.
