Because you're worth it!

Reading Time: 2 minutes TALIA KAUR wins a trip to the catwalks of L’Oréal Melbourne Fashion Festival and checks out the bridal show

A “money can’t buy” VIP trip for two to Melbourne for the L’Oréal Melbourne Fashion Festival (LMFF) sounded like the perfect way to spend a weekend. So when I heard about Sydney Westfield holding a competition to win this exact prize, I just knew I had to enter.
LMFF is definitely one fashion festival I had always wanted to attend.
For any of you who might be unfamiliar with LMFF, it’s one of Australia’s largest and most popular fashion events of the year. It runs for a week and has everything from runways showcasing the latest Australian designers and more.
The prize included a trip for two to Melbourne on Qantas airlines, a nights accommodation at Crown Promenade (such a gorgeous hotel), car transfers for the entire weekend, as well as two front row VIP tickets to the Red Carpet Runway show presented by Harper’s Bazaar (where we even had our own private bar).

The bridal runway was such an amazing show to watch. The designs were so delicate, beautiful and unique. My eyes were peeled as every garment went down the runway. Since my older sister is getting married next year, this was the perfect show for me to steal some inspiration. But what really took me (and the rest of the audience) by surprise was the closing of the show. It was simply breathtaking.
As the last model walked slowly down the runway in a beautiful snow white wedding gown, her veil (the length of the entire runway) trailed after her. It even needed two groomsmen to carry it. It was so romantic and such a perfect ending to the show. It was as if she was walking down the aisle, instead of a runway.
I’m pretty sure all the women in the audience wanted to get married right away. The live music was also incredible and the goodie bags we received were packed with lovely gifts.

We also managed to fit in some sightseeing while in Melbourne. All in all, the entire trip was definitely memorable and we both enjoyed every minute of it. I’m truly grateful for having won this trip and being able to take my mum for a weekend away. A huge thank you to Sydney Westfield for making this trip possible.
