This year’s Stonnington Spring Fashion Runway is celebrating an exciting new addition to its fashion program, the Style Me Stonnington blog to report on the events, the people, and what’s hot, new and happening in Stonnington.
The talented Stephanie Williams has been selected as the Style Me Stonnington blogger to provide up-to-the-minute commentary on all that unfolds leading up to, during and after the Stonnington Spring Fashion Runway. Stephanie has excellent local knowledge, a comprehensive understanding of fashion and a unique sense of style, so is well placed to be the eyes and ears of Stonnington fashion. There is plenty of amazing content to cover and discover.
Stonnington Mayor, Cr Tim Smith said: “This year, the Stonnington Spring Fashion Runway is embracing the blog as a strong medium to observe and report on Stonnington’s extensive fashion offer. In addition, the blog will provide an exciting platform for Stephanie to raise her profile and gain access to our amazing fashion talent.”
In recent times, the ‘fashion blogger’ has become the new muse, appearing front row at international runways around the globe – and in the case of BryanBoy and Tavi the Style Rookie – inspiring collections and accessories of big name designers like Rodarte and Marc Jacobs. Stonnington recognises the opportunities of this medium to reach new audiences and to promote exciting fashion dialogue. It also presents as an amazing opportunity for Stephanie.
As the resident Stonnington Spring Fashion Runway blogger, Stonnington local, Steph Williams will take to the streets of Toorak Road, Chapel Street, High Street and Toorak Village to unearth the Precinct’s style secrets and provide a behind the scenes look at the annual Stonnington Spring Fashion Runway events including the Fashion Hall of Fame and Fashion Industry Forum. She will have access to the likes of Wayne Cooper, Bettina Liano, T.L. Wood, Leona Edmiston and more to unearth the latest trends and tips on how to turn heads this spring season and trackside at the 2010 Spring Racing Carnival.
Stephanie has excellent fashion credentials which include working as the former operations manager for the ubër chic Commes des Garcon in London and is the brains behind Melbourne’s Interview Me blog, featuring Q&A’s with some of Melbourne’s most creative minds and artists.
