the big 500

We're not one to brag, but, this is our 500th post for the Electric sekki blog, so we thought we'd take the time out to celebrate this social media milestone. We've come a long way since our very first postandwe've met some incredible people along the way; we'd like to take this 500th post to recognise all of these inspirational colleagues, co-workers and friends that have contributed to the blog and to Electric sekki in any way, no matter how big or small. Here's to the next 500!

We brought you all the latest from the front-rows, the showrooms and the streets at Paris Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2012 and Spring/Summer 2013.


We spotted the inimitable Anna Dello Russo on more than one occasion; it's like spotted a rare bird in the jungle!


We've known and loved Christine Centenera back when she was a lesser known but just as fabulously fashionable editor at Harper's Australia.
