It's not personal, it's just fashion.

Lets rename Australian Fashion Week:


You will be shoved, pushed, snarled at, stared at, or completely blanked by people who are dressed in such a way as to indicate good breeding and social adeptness (you will therefore be forgiven for your surprise at the discovery that they are, in fact, sorely lacking in both). You will also most likely introduce yourselves to the same people upwards of three times, as they will forget your name and possibly even your face from day to day. Drinks will be poured down backs in the VIP bar scrum, goodie bags snatched with frenzied determination, queue-jumping will be rife due to each individual’s conviction that he/she is so much, much more VIP than the rest. It’s not personal, it’s just fashion.
