WHO: AMBER RENAE
WHAT: FASHION STYLIST
WHERE: MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA
FFF LOVES … Amber’s ability to look anything but mellow in show-stopping yellow.
Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch or Dinner?
Well we’d sleep in of course, so let’s start at lunch!
Where will you be dining?
We’d start at my favourite Shabu Shabu restaurant in Nishi Azabu, Tokyo. Following a quick shop down Omotesando we’d jet over to Rue de Saint Germaine for a Kir Royale aperitif and a browse on the Champs-Elysees before joining my brother for mouth-watering tapas in Seville, Spain. And finish the night in Cape Town dancing at the Fashion TV Bar!
What music are you listening to?
Old school Michael Jackson.
What are you wearing?
Gucci Fall 2004 — Tom Ford’s last collection for the house. I would never wear head-to-toe one designer, but for my last Supper I want to be draped in my favourite collection. There would be at least six outfit changes throughout the day.
What are you going to eat?
More than I should!
About Amber Renae:
Style and design are in Amber’s DNA. A qualified Civil Engineer, Amber Renae transitioned from constructing roads to constructing dresses when she started her own fashion label in 2002. The label earned industry acclaim and achieved instant success, showcased in high-end fashion boutiques across Australia, Japan, France, New Zealand and the United States.
Closer to home, Amber’s debut collection was quickly snapped up by Australian heavyweight David Jones and its appeal among celebrities including Paris Hilton ensured editorial success in Madison, Shop till you Drop, and Cosmopolitan magazines.
A celebrated style icon, Amber has been recognised within the industry with her appointment to the board of the inaugural Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival, was selected to discuss ‘innovation in fashion’ with the Australian Government’s Parliamentary Secretary for Trade, and featured in the second series of Arena TV’s Project Runway Australia. This phenomenal success led to her appointment as the founding Fashion Editor for online lifestyle magazine: X&Y.
