Hold onto your Dannijo and try to suppress your fan-girl squeals, Brisbane fashion nuts, 'cause world-renowned style savant, blogger, author, digital entrepreneur and all-round legend, Leandra Medine of Man Repeller fame is coming to James Street's RESORT festival this October.
Yep, Leandra is hitting our very own James Street for the inaugural RESORT event—a three-day fashion, design, and lifestyle festival that's all about harnessing fresh ideas from Brisbane's finest creative minds (with some international heavy-hitters thrown in for good measure), in a series of exciting forums, workshops, and exhibitions, including a talk from the Man Repeller herself!
If you're not clued in to the Man Repeller yet, you need to swot up. She's a fixture on the Forbes 30 Under 30 List, and has been voted #1 in AdWeek's Fashion Power 25, beating the likes of Anna Wintour and Lady Gaga for top spot, and has a laid back, cheeky, and irreverent style that's changing the way women dress (eat your heart out, Palermo).
Running from the 23rd to 25th of October, RESORT promises to be an urban vaykay of the best kind, with pool parties, live music, world-renowned guest speakers, and special offers. Monocle Magazine's Editor-in-Chief and global trendsetter, Tyler Brûlé will be opening the festival, followed by a showing of Queensland designer, Easton Pearson's resort collection.
If you want to catch the Man Repeller in action, she'll be engaged in an intimate conversation of all things fashion at the RESORT Trailblazers event on Saturday the 25th, alongside The Urban List director, and sartorially savvy entrepreneur, Susannah George.
We're super pumped for the RESORT After Dark event on Friday, October 24th, where James Street retailers will hold a fashion party with a balmy pool-side vibe, complete with cocktails and putt-putt under the stars. Leandra will be in attendance, and we're even hearing rumours of golf buggies.
This is going to be awesome.
