The last day of Australian Fashion Week was quieter with only a handful of shows but there were some very cool futuristic beauty looks created like this wrapped fishtail braid at Christina Exie.
I’ve had a crazy fabulous week running around behind the scenes (with a few front row seats to the shows too!) and here are my pics from backstage on the final day. I also attended the Elle magazine launch runway show and party last night which was a fabulous way to end fashion week. I’ll bring you some party pics (and some outfit photos) tomorrow.

How many people does it take to get one model ready?

Fantastic photography, Christina! I actually enjoyed going backstage this year even more than the shows. Just to be able to see and capture all the action and drama…

Thanks Maria! I agree, I love backstage and you pick up so many beauty tricks too x
It’s stunning to see how to get one model ready requires many people, and oh my, I absolutely love that electric blue lips!
