Modelling isn't all being pampered, putting on nice clothes and pouting in front of a camera. It requires work - especially during fashion week. But what exactly DO models do during that period of time? I asked two top New Zealand models travelling to Sydney for MBFWA to keep an iPhone-photo-fashion-week-diary to show us exactly what goes on over that busy period. Here are the results.

Best thing that has happened so far at MBFWA?: The amazing outfit I'm wearing at Swarovski- it's an incredible jumpsuit covered in crystals. And daylight savings ends the day before fashion week starts - helps with those early mornings! (I found out that I have a 5am call time- that means a 4am wakeup!!!)
