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!
