Australian Fashion Week : A Dream

fashion week

I had a dream…A dream to combine Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney Fashion Week. If I were to organise the ultimate biggest fashion week to represent Australia I would push 3 cities in a week – Monday to Sunday. Having different weeks for all three cities is very confusing for me and for others! So why not?

Let’s see what my schedule could look like if this ever comes to action. P.S I will just leave venues as it is :)

While I love designers, I love seeing emerging designers showcase. I mean how did designers start anyway?…

In addition, why not feature a runway of how designer street wear continues to influence every day? The new trends, the returning trends and the uniqueness.

We can not just leave out the official after-party right? Let’s get glamorous, fashionable and have a drink and dance with other fellow industry members.

I really do enjoy Industry get-togethers. Brunch, dinner or whatever it may be. It’s a time where people are relaxed with each other, talk about the industry, fashion week and networking. I’ve learned a lot and met so many inspiring fellow industry members at Brisbane events.

My #outfitoftheday style for #fashionweekaus

fashion week style

Maybe you are asking why am I not wearing glamorous designer wear or bright colours for fashion week. I also work behind the camera so I would rather be in an outfit that is comfy yet still describes my personality into my wear. i.e. quirky, comfy, effortless, fun, style, pattern, individualism. Let’s face it, wearing heels all day won’t be as glamorous at the end of the day.

I chose crèmes, blacks and browns as Australian weather is kind of unpredictable, especially in Melbourne. The crèmes still exudes warmth and that relaxing feel that Australia has. And oriental spring blossoms on the shirt screams me – Asian! Haha And I need nails that fit with my colour tones. I use the camera so I have to have coloured nails too!

Fashion BLOGging and fashion INSTAGRAMers are taking fashion week by storm. It’s just too easy to express an opinion of a designer showcase and/or take shots and Instagram the hell of a cool runway look. It’s how we keep up with all the fashion hype. So we totally need more fashion bloggers and photographers in the VIP line. And yes we need top fashion icons such as Gary Pepper, Margaret Zhang or Kate Waterhouse, but we still need to recognise the local social people. Bring on board more bloggers. Yes, I still hear stories about how SOME, NOT ALL, bloggers fight their way through the line to get to VIP. Those bloggers give us a bad impression. However, those who are genuine bloggers who don’t care for VIP, just need a glimpse on the sideline, even 3rd or 5th row is fine for them, deserve 2nd or VIP. That’s just my opinion. Although it’s hard to tell who is genuine in this competitive industry. I would love to mention fellow bloggers who love being themselves and would appreciate my company at fashion week but I can’t be too publicly biased hehe

The Blogger Interview Series | Dream of Colour AU

Screen shot 2015-09-07 at 6.38.25 PM

Don’t know how this chain started but I’ve been tagged by THIS GUY CAN in the Blogger interview series. A great lifestyle blog by a guy, yes a guy. A guy’s view on fitness, lifestyle, food and travel! Something a little different for you hehe

It’s about time I answer these common questions, I guess haha

How did you get into blogging?
Since 2010 through a different name and blog but 2012 was my official launch off for Theresa Chung | Dream of Colour AU. I started writing on local events and fashion weeks.

What advice would you give to a blogger just starting out?
Like Luke from THIS GUY CAN, experimenting is key to any blogging. Experimenting with your interests in writing to test your readers. Start writing now! Why wait till later when you think you’re more entertaining. If you leave it till later, your idea may be pushed aside by other fresh ideas so START WRITING NOW! Keep your minds fresh by being inspired from other bloggers and instagram.

What would be your dream campaign?
Help emerging and local designers promote their designs. My label, Atown, hopes to achieve this. I understand the difficulty of local designers to start their own business of selling their designs online without the networking exposure.

Do you have a plan for your blog?
I already have with customers emailing me with requests for personal styling in streetwear and ready-to-wear sessions. Sessions are kept confidential.

What do you think about rankings?
Rankings do help if you want to have your name out in the networking “wilderness”. If you are scared you won’t gain the desired ranking, don’t worry this just takes time, patience and focus. Keep writing, challenging concepts with your own charisma.

Once you get to a certain ranking level (1k+ followers), then collaboration requests will come to you, acceptances/invites fashion week or events will come your way. But even if you have less than 1k, does not mean you should be discouraged to request for media passes at fashion week / events. I don’t always receive invites, I do ask for my passes too. There is no harm in a quick email to request blogger / media passes. There are two simples answers YES or NO. And if you do get NOs, keep asking for other events. I guarantee you will receive at least 1 YES! From this one YES, there’ll be more YESs~


Yes, I am slow in my posts partially coz I’m lazy and busy. hahah

I nominate the following bloggers to take part in the interview:

Everyone else is welcome to jump on board this train ^^

Busy and Catching Up`

Hey Dreamers,

My apologies for not being so active but I have an explanation. I am busy with the launch of my stock label. Yippie~

Many of you on Facebook and Instagram are confused why I am promoting a different name, that’s because I am the director for a new Australian stock label.


I have been busy contacting many designers, especially those listed below as my potential designers for 2016, from South Korea, Australia, Vietnam and US.

atown designer

Since I was 17, I’ve wanted to work for a label that fits with my style, so now I have ATOWN. From 23, I’ve realised I want to work for myself. 27, right now, may be a bit late, but I always ask myself `If not now then when?!` For those of you struggling to run after your dreams, DO NOT GET CAUGHT UP WITH THOSE WHO DISCOURAGE YOU! Even if that is your own family. My parents are too traditionally Asian to even understand how networking, technology, fashion and business works together. `Go back into full time work, you’ll be set for life when you get married.` Do I intend to find happiness through marriage? My longest relationship has only been 8 months let alone enduring 2+ years of marriage and family. With this mindset I am moving forward, persevering through any negativity through friends, family and haters!

Besides, I can’t stand to be in an office or simple full time job in a week. I’m too cray Asian for that, right? haha Thank you so much for your love so far and for my new goals on top of DREAM OF COLOUR AU! xoxo

I have plenty of posts for you from MBFF, UBERMEN, INDOOROOPILLY, etc soon. Too many to even start!

See you soon Dreamers :)

P.S I have nick names. Lion Hair, Asian Mafia / Gangster (where’s my Asian toothpick). What’s your nickname for me? LOL





I’m really excited to be back to cover the event again.

Dont know what this is? It’s the Korean Film Festival showcasing a variety of latest Korean films. Thank you to KOFFIA for fulfilling our Korean Entertainment addictions. It’s really difficult for many of us to see this films from across the ocean so KOFFIA is here to help!

I’m anticipating the below films!
