It doesn’t get any more high fashion than a photo shoot 88 floors above the ground! And this is exactly what I did when I visited Eureka Skydeck this week with Mr. Mochi, to take some beautiful shots of my new By Johnny skirt and top.

Bravely and incredibly quickly conquering my fear of heights I stepped onto “The Edge”, a glass cube that protrudes from the 88th floor of the Eureka Tower. As you can imagine, it was a terrifying (but extraordinary) experience! “The Edge” is a totally transparent cube giving you the ability to look straight through the ceiling, all 3 exposed sides and even the floor (if you dare!) to experience a view of Melbourne like no other.

In my case, being quite the opposite to an adrenaline junkie/thrill seeker, it was actually a huge mistake looking straight down. It was nerve-raking walking around in heels to the different corners to take photos. I was clutching onto the handrails and Mr. Mochi’s arms for dear life, even though I was perfectly safe in there! It was actually pretty funny in the end because as I familiarized myself to the strangeness of walking on a transparent floor I actually rather enjoyed myself.

Beyond the edge, there are beautiful 360-degree views of Melbourne as you walk around the 88th floor of the Skydeck. Being 285m above ground, with floor to ceiling windows you will be spoiled for choice for excellent photo opportunities. In terms of Instagram worthiness, this sightseeing attraction receives a solid 10/10. I thoroughly enjoyed planning and shooting my outfit for this shoot and loved how the photos turned out.

One of my favorite moments in particular was looking through the viewfinders, as I was able to spot a few of Melbourne’s iconic landmarks. It made me feel like a kid again playing real life Where’s Wally, except instead of finding Wally I found the MCG, Flinders Street Station, The Arts Centre and Rod Laver Arena.

All in all, the Skydeck is the perfect location for your next high fashion shoot or for experiencing Melbourne from a different perspective. The sky is the limit!

    Oh Adrianna, you are so brave. I am not sure I would dare to go up. It sounds really terrifying. I really admire you.
    And I love this skirt and the top. It is so unique and beautifully crafted. You look gorgeous. I have never been to Melbourne but when I go, I will definitely visit Eureka Skydeck.
    Have a wonderful weekend, sweetie!
    Big hugs,

    You look bloody stunning! It looks like a dress in a way, haha. Also, you are so brave! I would have been a huge mess in your place as I am terrified of heights, so transparent floors don’t sound very tempting to me, haha. But I bet that they view was all worth it 🙂

      Thank you Leta! It certainly has fooled many people so I could definitely get away with it and wear it as a dress haha. It was nerve racking at first however I ended up being able to move around as I became more comfortable. It’s definitely an amazing view if you can bare to look out and even straight down!

      Even though it looks like a beautiful dress it’s actually a top and skirt from By Johnny 🙂

      Thanks Nancy xx

      Eureka Skydeck is in Melbourne, Australia.

      Thanks Caitlin xx

      It’s definitely worth it to see the 360* view of Melbourne! Viewing the sunset is a must while up there 🙂

      Thanks Gemma 🙂
      It’s actually a top and skirt paired together both from By Johnny. I think they work so well together that they actually look like a dress!

      Thanks Margot 🙂
      These By Johnny top and skirt pair so well together that so many think it’s actually a dress! It’s quite useful that they can be matched with other pieces making them more versatile than just one dress.

      Thanks Heather 🙂 This has by far been my craziest and scariest shoot so far. It was all worth it in the end though with plenty of beautiful photos and memories.

    What a pretty dress, and the pictures are fantastic!

    • March 26, 2017 / 16:21

      Thanks Ashley 🙂
      Would you actually believe that this ensemble is a top and skirt duo? Matched together they look like a beautiful dress and separately can be worn many different other ways!

      It’s quite high up so you get a beautiful 360 degree view of Melbourne. Viewing at sunset is especially beautiful 🙂

      Thank you 🙂 I had so much fun taking these photos once I became more comfortable with the height!

    A truly stunning backdrop, Adrianna! I would also be scared to death to look down tbh, as I am quite afraid of heights, but you overcame your fear and the result is this fabulous post. The metallic finish of your top+skirt is really original. Hope you enjoyed your trip to Melbourne
