If your dreams have ever consisted of owning your own personalised Dior bag, we are here to help make them come true. Your fave luxury house has launched a pop-up store in Chadstone, Melbourne, complete with a personalisation service, ABCDior, where you can have your name or initials embroidered on your Dior Book Tote bag, Diorcamp bag or Walk’n’Dior sneakers. Fun!
To celebrate this v exciting development, we dressed honey pie Fabienne Distelzwey up in an assortment of Dior treats, feat. the iconic saddle bag, the cutest houndstooth mini you ever did see, and a blazer that would look right at home draped over Blair Waldorf’s shoulder. Witness the glorious results in the above gallery, then get to know the model better via our convo with her below…

Where are you originally from, and where do you live now?
I was born in Germany and I moved to New Zealand when I was four, which is where I live now.
Where would you take someone visiting your hometown for the first time?
I would take them to Tawharanui beach. You definitely need to see New Zealand’s amazing beaches if you were to visit!
What do you get up to when you’re not modelling?
I definitely like to stay active and do things like boxing and reformer Pilates. I also really enjoy writing, so I do that as much as I can when I have spare time.
What do you love most about your time in Sydney?
I love the variety of things Sydney has to offer. Whether it’s going to Bondi beach or going to the markets, there’s always something to do and new people to meet.
What’s the coolest thing you’ve learned recently?
I’ve recently learned not to stress about the small, insignificant things in life, and instead try to appreciate every day that I am given.
What books are you currently reading?
I’m currently reading ‘The Scholar’ by Dervla McTiernan. I love crime and thriller books so I’m really enjoying it.
What are you most excited for in 2020?
I’m really excited to learn more about myself. To be able to push myself beyond my comfort zone and see what I can achieve.
