Funny Things We Overhead at MBFWA 2015

If anyone’s told you that Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia is all about the fashion, then they are sorely mistaken. One of the greatest things about MBFWA, if not the greatest thing, is the funny and sometimes silly things we overhear people saying. Sometimes it’s said just to get through the day. Sometimes it’s said to make feel someone more important than the fashionista sitting next to them. The days are long and tiresome, and everyone’s trying to prove their worth in a cut-throat industry. Scroll through below and see what we heard during the week that was in Australian fashion.
