1Held just a few floors above the EW HQ at the Media 1 Business Tower, we couldn’t resist nipping upstairs for a sneak peek of the Fashion Forward fittings.

The three day event will kick off on Friday and we can tell you right now, if what we saw this morning is anything to go by, you are all in for a real treat!

Enjoy our exclusive snaps for a glimpse backstage pre-show!

2The charming Golkar brothers took a moment to talk EW’s Annah through their impressive collections; Emperor 1688 (menswear) and Golkar Haute Couture (womenswear).

The designers said of their new collection: “We were inspired by Versailles and the French Revolution, yet we ensured everything had a contemporary, modern edge.

You can expect beautiful handcrafted embroidery and embellishments, set against super luxe fabrics. We can’t wait to see their show on the opening day!

Models and meatballs? Not an obvious combination but one that was clearly enjoyed! 


Designer’s Essa and Michael Cinco have a catch-up before their fittings


We loved the style of the off-duty models; loose t-shirts, ankle boots and oversized shirts


Standing for hours on end in ultra high heels is hard work, so these models took a well-deserved break. 


 It was all hands on deck for the fittings! 


It took all of our willpower not to reach in and try a few of these M.A.C beauty bits
