The Wombats


This was a remarkable, difficult performance!

Remarkable being because The Wombats have been one of my favourite bands since their release of ‘Let’s dance to Joy Division' in 2009 (I would have been 12 years old). Difficult because they had so much energy running around and dancing all over the stage, Making shooting them very difficult, not to mention I was so in awe that I found myself merely watching and singing at the top of my lungs! After getting out of the photography pit and managing to push through the crowd to my friends (Man I thought I might die and get squished), I spend the rest of the night dancing my heart out and singing with strangers! A truly memorable night!

I did fangirl and hung around after the show just in case The Wombats might sign my ‘Let’s dance to Joy Division' Vinyl; unfortunately, I didn't manage to see them.

Oh and I can't forget ‘Ha the Unclear’, they were just as fantastic live as I had imaged. The mix of there quirky sound and lyrics combined with their stage presence! Flipping fantastic!

I'm looking forward to seeing them again early next year.

I spy with my little eye lots of toy bugs, can you?

AUT Rookie Backstage 2018

I didn't get the chance to spend much time backstage, but I managed to get a few shots for you. In the 10 minutes I had, I managed to say hello to all my lovely friends/models and had a closer look at a few of the garments. I always find it interested to see the clothes up close compared with how they look and sit on the body of a model.

I always enjoy seeing the Rookie show each year. I love seeing what the third year fashion students of AUT create, given the skills, resources and creative freedom they have to dive deep into who they are. These are my favourite designers from this year's Rookie show.
