I decided that after I graduate from FIDM I'm moving to Australia, either to Melbourne or Sydney, to pursue my career in fashion. Why, a crazy person might ask, move to the island continent? My defense: why not?! Why not spend a few years of my youth living in amazing Australia, just a short distance from the Great Barrier Reef, the world's only country to occupy an entire continent. From snowy mountains to ancient rain forests and vast deserts all surrounded by miles of iconic beaches. And the Australian fashion industry is the fine maraschino cherry on top of the luscious landscapes. 

Since 1996, Mercedes Australian Fashion Week has been the international showcase for the Australian fashion industry. Although a relative youngster in the fashion world, the annual event has thrusted Australia's international reputation. Aussie labels such as Aje., Haryono Setiadi, Bec and Bridge, Camilla, Senso, Lottie Hall and Sass and Bide continue to be spotted on international fashion icons like Kate Moss, Sienna Miller and Miranda Kerr, just to name a few. 

If I haven't yet convinced you to either move to Australia or just shop brands from the land down under, then these to-die-for online boutiques will: parata clothing, tuchuzy, designer forum, frolic girls, rock and royal and spell designs. Although shipping nearly costs my left arm, it's an arm well worth living without since I'm right handed. Once I get the nerves to spend my graduation funds this and this and these will be mine. mwahahha
