Rachel Gilbert's Top Three Tips for Surviving Rosemont Australian Fashion Week: We talk to the designer

2011 RAFW Exclusive Preview: Rachel Gilbert

This week is set to be a big one for Rachel Gilbert! What with Princess Beautrice donning a Rachel Gilbert gown to the Royal Wedding pre-dinner, Zoe  Ventura and Rebecca Breeds also opting for her designs for the Logies, and her RAFW show scheduled for tomorrow morning, it's all systems go for the Aussie designer. Known for her youthful but ultra glamourous take on red carpet dressing, we're sure that Tuesday's show will be choc-full of her signature sexy styles. We spoke briefly to Rachel, to get her top three tips on surviving the mayhem of RAFW:

  • I always have to remind myself RAFW isn’t a sprint, it’s a marathon so it’s crucial to stay hydrated at all times. I drink a lot of water and try to stay healthy even when working insane hours. In addition to my water bottle I always do a detox in the weeks leading up to Fashion week. I feel healthy, charged and ready to conquer RAFW.
  • Having an oversized tote to store all of my necessities in is key. A petite clutch just isn’t going to cut it for this event. Papers, notes, bottles of water, blackberry, camera and anything else I need can all fit. My Balenciaga giant city bag stylishly hauls around everything I need.
  • Organisation is essential during RAFW. My cosmetic bag helps control the chaos in my handbag, and a good bronzer is essential for faking that healthy glow all day long.
