"PREMIERE: ELLERY IN PARIS" DOCUMENTARY REVIEW AND PREVIEW

Hey Readers!
One of my weaknesses, apart from shoes, is watching fashion documentaries. As a fashion student, I find them so educational and interesting to watch. This allows me to understand more about this crazy industry and all of the avenues you can take. 
I recently watched Premiere: Ellery in Paris which is a documentary produced by Vogue magazine about the amazing Australian designer Kym Ellery's first Paris Fashion Week show. 
I was able to watch this on beamafilm, which is currently the only Australian website streaming the documentary. Information on how you can watch it will be down below alongside a preview trailer!


Although I am not a fashion design student, it really helped me to understand what goes on behind-the-scenes of all the design and organisational processes to produce a catwalk show. I was glued to my computer the whole time because there was so much going on. It was such an intimate documentary in terms of knowing how Kym was feeling and her emotions surrounding the lead-up to her show at Paris Fashion Week. It's such an amazing achievement and it just reconfirms how talented Kym Ellery really is. From seeing the casting process of models to intimate chats with Kym and watching her do her make-up in her Paris apartment, there is so much to learn about Ellery as a label, the processes of running a show on such a massive scale and also about Kym. It was refreshing to see her positive, outgoing personality throughout the documentary and to see her share intimate moments with her partner, Luke Stedman. 

The trailer for Premiere:


You can watch Premiere on beamafilm HERE as part of their 7-day FREE trial or a $5.99 monthly subscription. Also, members of some Australian public libraries can also view the film for FREE with their membership number.

All in all, I absolutely loved this documentary. It was so raw and definitely one to watch if you're a fan of Ellery or a fashion student! Highly recommend!

FOIL

Hey Readers!
This week's outfit post is what I wore on Sunday. I ended up going to a fete at my high school to see my old teachers and school mates I hadn't seen in ages! I had such a great day and definitely wanted to wear something appropriate but as usual, on-trend. 
I opted for my favourite tone, black. Surprise, surprise! But I spiced it up a bit with my amazing new t-shirt that has gold foil lettering. I took a jacket with me but didn't end up needing it because it was such a hot day - thank you, Brisbane! 
Winter in Brisbane is definitely not an average well, Winter. This is perfect for me as I am a self-confessed Winter hater! I balanced out my outfit by wearing jeans on the bottom. They ended up being a lifesaver by the late afternoon where it became a little bit chilly.

Look at me, talking about the weather! If this was a date, I would definitely not get a second one.
To complete my outfit I wore my new limited edition sandals from Zu Shoes. I love the buckle detailing around the ankle and how comfortable they are! I've been wearing them everywhere. They are the perfect everyday sandal.

Here is my Sunday style for you,

Enjoy!








T-Shirt: General Pants
Jeans: Topshop
Shoes: Zu Shoes (Fancie)
