Last month was all about fashion when we not only got to see the Aje runway show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week 2015, but backed up at the Tempus Two private party after the show.

While I was hanging out with party host, friend, and Tempus Two winemaker Andrew Duff, I excitedly got to meet Aje, owners and fashion designers, Adrian Norris and Edwina (Eddie) Robinson. And you know me - after chatting about the success of their runway show, I just had to ask a few questions!

Here's what Adrian Norris had to say.

Adrian Norris: The Five Things I Love About Sydney

I hail from the Sunshine Coast and in my early twenties, I had my own boutique in Noosa. It was during this time I saw a niche for beautiful everyday clothing which was glamorous. My best friend Eddie and I shared the same vision and so Aje was founded - it's taken a long time and lots of hard work to get to where we are now, but it's all been worth it!

Long Lunch At Catalina

Looking out over the water at Catalina is a favourite past time of mine and I never go without ordering their oysters.

Swimming in the ocean at Tamarama

To escape the crowds of Bondi I head to Tamarama – when the weather doesn’t permit nothing beats a great weekend in the Hunter Valley at the Tempus Two Cellar Door.

Salt Meat and Chesse near The Grounds

Salt Meat and Chesse is favourite haunt of mine - I’m really interested in cooking and they always have amazing courses. The next one on my hit list is Mozzarella!

White Rabbit Gallery

The White Rabbit Gallery is a go-to in Sydney for all the best contemporary Chinese art.

Dining @ Home in Potts Point with friends – getting the food from Healthnuts

One of my favourite past times is dining at my place in Potts Point with friends, I never put on a feast without a visit to Health Nuts on Darlinghurst Road!
