Me and John Steffensen
I recently attended The 2nd Annual Australian Walk of Style Event at The Intersection, Paddington as part of my job as Fashion Editor for Latte Life newspaper. The event was hosted by Australian Fashion Week founder Simon Lock and celebrated the induction of 6 more iconic Australian Designers to the Walk of Style.
Sylvia Jeffreys and Jesinta Campbell
Nikki and Simone Zimmerman
Zimmerman, Simona, House of Merivale, Easton Pearson, Weiss and Carla Zampatti were recognised this year for their outstanding contribution to the Australian Fashion Industry. Their names were cast in bronze and laid in stone on the footpath in Oxford Street.
The prestigious Who’s Who of Australian Fashion Top 100 was also unveiled showcasing the most influential fashion identities from 1962-2012. The list was voted by Australia’s five Fashion Laureates: Akira Isagowa, Collette Dinnigan, Carla Zampatti, Pamela Easton & Lydia Pearson and Simon Lock. The Who’s Who list is cast in bronze and on permanent display at The Intersection.

The Walk of Style is the brainchild of property developer and the founder of the Intersection Theo Onisforou who wanted to celebrate the past, present and future of the home of Australian Fashion. I believe he has succeeded don’t you? It was a fabulous event organised by Sweaty Betty PR so you wouldn’t expect anything less!
