    I THOUGHT I had a hole in my head when I looked at the menu. Cured tuna and doughnuts? Granola and doughnuts? Surprise, surprise, the combos work. Chef Nathan Frost, of The Doughnut Department, newly opened in the city’s No Name Lane, is on to something.

    Hi, my name's Bree. I'm 39 and I'm a size 18 mum from Queanbeyan. But I'm not a model. Sadly, you won't be seeing me on the Fashfest catwalk this year. I had an incredible day auditioning for Canberra's answer to fashion week a few months ago, but it turns out I need some more modelling experience to be selected in a lineup for the runway.

    I knew my visit to Sarah's home was going to be something special. Not because I had arrived early for the first time in my life (and didn’t make Victor wait for me like a loyal servant), but because her home exemplified an incredible contrast of styles right from the start.

    IN CONVERSATION WITH MAYS ATTI: A MODEL’S FASHFEST PERSPECTIVE

    On the 4th June, over 400 hopefuls walked the runway of FASHFEST 2017’s model casting. I, too, had been keen to attend, as the event is the largest of its kind in Canberra. Unfortunately, in terms of my uni calendar, the FASHFEST model casting could not have come at a worse time. So, instead of joining the throngs of photographers and media at the casting catwalk, I was stuck at my desk with a mountain of textbooks and a huge case of FOMO.

    When I took to the runway last week to experience what it's like to audition to be a Fashfest model, I had no idea the impact a plus-size mum on the catwalk could have. Since my story on my Fashfest audition went live last Sunday, I've had text messages, emails and a lot of love on social media.

    It’s hard, I get it. You’re in a room full of Canberra’s most attractive people, and you’re trying to stand out. You’re thinking “that girl’s got a cuter nose”, “that guy’s taller than me” or “that body is just too bootylicious”.

    On Sunday morning I was up early, dressed, showered and on the road by 10:00am. While I didn’t have far to go, I was nervous. It was not the paralysing sort of nervous that usually has me curled up in a ball on my lounge watching re-runs on Netflix to distract myself. No, this was the frenetic sort of nervous.

    It’s the shoes that fascinate me. I’m impressed (and not to say envious) by the towering, tapering heels, and the fact that the female models manage to stay upright let alone walk a catwalk in front of four judges! That’s got to get them brownie points!

    Hi, my name's Bree. I'm 39, and my 'go to' brands are Now (Kmart) and Avella (Big W's plus size range). I have a belly that never really left after my second child was born a decade ago, and a bum my family lovingly refers to as 'the shelf' (because you literally could sit your dinner on it).
