This week I was fortunate enough to find myself in Melbourne at the same time as ‘The House of Dior’ exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria. I’d seen details of the exhibition online earlier in the year, and lamented the fact that it wasn’t coming to Perth, as it was an exclusive collaboration between NGV and Dior to celebrate the houses seventieth anniversary. So I was super thrilled that I ended up in Melbourne for a few days with my partner Alex while it was open, so I didn’t miss seeing it!
There was so many beautiful pieces (over 140 designs!), all arranged in the most magical way… Walking through the gallery amongst all of the elaborate couture garments was a very special moment for me, and something I feel so lucky to have experienced. Alex really enjoyed the exhibition too despite him not being a total fashion lover like me, so if you have a boyfriend/partner/friend who isn’t necessarily into fashion it’s definitely still something they will find interesting to check out! I snapped lots of photos while I was there to share with you all, you can take a peek at them below 🙂
At long last, something I’d been keeping under wraps for months was revealed in August – I was one of the emerging fashion designers lucky enough to be chosen by a panel of judges to showcase my work as part of Telstra Perth Fashion Festivals ‘New Generation’ runway! I had been told this exciting new back in April, but of course had to keep it top secret until the TPFF program launch later in the year… Boy oh boy was I glad when it was finally out in the open, as at last I didn’t have to act all vague and mysterious when I was asked what my fashion-design-related plans for the year were!!
This show was something I had been really hoping I would get selected for – It provides a great platform for designers who are just starting their own label to show their work, and I LOVE the hustle and bustle of being involved in runway shows! The ‘New Generation’ showcase took place recently on the 14th of September, and although a few weeks have now passed I’m still totally buzzing with post-show excitement (especially while looking back over the photos and video below!) 🙂

I’m so excited to be back using YouTube again! Those of you who have been following me for a while may remember that I briefly used YouTube last year and uploaded a few videos, although I found I didn’t have them time to produce content that I was 100% happy with. So I decided to leave it and come back when I did have time – which is now! 🙂 I have lots of fun video ideas, but I’d also love to hear suggestions from you guys on what you’d like to see me film, so feel free to comment below or DM me on Instagram (@katehannah) if you have any suggestions!

One of the most common things I hear through my social media and in everyday life is variations of the phrase “I wish I could dress colourfully too!”. I always encourage people to dress how they want and have fun with fashion, although from these conversations I get the impression that when wanting to change your style it can be hard to know where to start. So I thought it might be useful to some of you if I put together a blog post with my top tips on how to start introducing colour into your own personal style!
