Gok Wan’s Westfield Style Tour A/W 2012

When: 17 May 2012
Where: Westfield Parramatta

The famous British fashion stylist, Gok Wan (How To Look Good Naked, Gok’s Fashion Fix) has finally arrived in Australia and the first stop for his Westfield Style Tour was Westfield Parramatta.

Gok Far
Just like his television persona he is loud, flamboyant, and charismatic. As well as hilariously crass, throwing in the occasional ‘F’ word even encouraging the audience to just get it out of the way and call him the derogatory term, ‘f****t’ (I couldn’t bring my to say it!) and sprinkling not-so-subtle innuendos while giving his style advice.

Gok Audience
First lesson of the day, Gok teaches us about baggy clothes that are used to cover our bodies but all it does is makes us look shapeless and unflattering.

With a few snips, tucks and bulldog clips he transforms a baggy outfit, into a flattering dress.
Gok Shapeless
Hand picking 4 lucky ladies out of the audience, Gok gives them the ‘once in a lifetime’ makeover opportunity. Using his iPad to sketch their body shape and a flattering style, his team helps put these looks to life.


The show was the first for the 2012 style tour, and it went of without a hitch except some awkward mumbling when he insisted on the audience calling him a ‘f*****t’. Just like Gok himself, the show was fun and gave the audience what they wanted: makeovers, Q & A, lots of interaction as well as doing a meet and greet after the show!
Gok’s Style Tour is sponsored by Unilever who provided samples to the audience which included TRESemmé travel size Colour Protect Shampoo & Conditioner, Dove Body Wash, Dove Hair Therapy, Dove Beauty Cream Bar and Simple Facial Wipes.
While Westfield Stylist Donny Galella took care of crowd warming duties by introducing us to the Westfield Style ID iPad app which decodes your style with willing volunteers getting treated to a $50 gift card! As well as hair and make up advice from TRESemmé spokesperson Joh Bailey and a Napoleon representative.
