Fashion week kick-off

DOLLY scored an invitation to The General Pants Co. Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival... and it rocked!

Hi girls, hope you’ve all had a great week!

Mine has been great – helped along by scoring an invitation when General Pants Co. kicked off Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival in Sydney with a bang on Wednesday night.

Design Director (aka stylist extraordinaire) Pip put on quite a show debuting designer Dan Singles DAAN’s new range as well as model Stef ‘Bambi’ Northwood Blyth B.BAM’s first range for General Pants Co.

The show was designed to look like a basketball game – first half and second half with half-time entertainment and also a kissing Love Cam at the end. Oh, and what made it even better? My little sister Robbie walked the catwalk for them too!

Of course there were killer tunes which I couldn’t stop from bopping my head to mixed by Mr Single himself. Talk about multi-tasking – designing a collection, dressing models backstage and mixing tunes… he sure is talented.

So what did I see? Lots and lots of denim of course! There were a mix of washes and styles paired with great basketball jerseys, jackets and even shorts. There were lots of double prints and overalls (which of course I love being a tomboy trend).

BOYS VS GIRLS. Loving that Stussy tee.

Anyway, enough from me – here’s what the designers had to say about their new collections

Dan Single:“I never sit still and DAAN is a slightly out of the box and very impatient version of me.’

Bambi:“I designed the collection based on what my friends and I would wear, and I would love to see any girl who’s willing to experiment, mix and match and have fun, feel good and be confident to wear B.BAM.”

Well said Bambi! And let me tell you girls I would wear EVERYTHING in her collection, She had some super cute basic pieces as well as statement pieces every girl could totally rock.

The finale

General Pants Co. knows how to put on a show and they definitely have the coolest clothing going around. You guys should check out their new range online or in store.

Till next week, have great weekend!
