In my 28 years of existence, I had been to Sydney three times and now with my trip to Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival a fourth.
The first was a free trip I won for a singing competition where I got to go to Australian Idol. The second was for an acting audition back and forward in one day and the last time was for a wedding where it was of course about the ceremony.
So all up I really hadn’t see much of Sydney until this time around where I actually got to walk around the City and understand my bearings from the hostel I was staying at in Potts Point.
Can I just say Sydney is a cool city. I had never quite understood the obsession of people who live in big cities saying Sydney was the best, but I can now understand. The street has a special feel about it just like I felt when I was in New York. The streets are wide, the path ways are busy, the clothing stores are fancy and the air is cool.
Before attending the fashion show I ventured into the City via an Uber and checked out all the amazing shops and then made my way back to the hostel to get ready, to then turn back and go back into Town Hall for the fashion show.
On the third night I made sure I accomplished what I had wanted to on the first two nights, and that was to meet attendees and take photos of their outfits. A huge hello to everyone I met 🙂 Please keep in contact so we can meet up again for when I travel back in future. This definitely will be the first of many trips.
