Bizarre Bazaar Returns to Sydney’s Sussex Lane

Wednesday, June 29th, 2011

Sydney’s shoppers can once again flock to Sussex Lane for Bizarre Bazaar, the pop-up twilight market on Thursday 30 June.
I spoke to Christopher McLaren, founder of Bizarre Bazaar, “Crowds are anticipated to arrive in masses – all clammering for first pick of a fantastic range of clothing and jewellery. We have DJ Gian Arpino set to provide our guests with some great beats and a fantastic vibe all night. With fantastic shopping and an array of bars and restaurants, guests will be entertained for four hours in the intimate setting of Sussex Lane.”
Bizarre Bazaar is a community project occuring on a monthly basis exploring Sydney’s laneways and public spaces. More information is available online at or follow Bizarre Bazaar on Twitter for regular updates.

It’s a great initiative, a great concept and a great evening out… So get a group together for after work drinks and a shop all in one!

Bizarre Bazaar Brings Sydney’s Sussex Laneway Alive For One Night Only

Thursday, May 19th, 2011

After interviewing Christopher McLaren on the radio show I do at Bondi 88 FM with Corby-Sue, I fell in love with his idea, his concept and his drive. It’s come to life and it’s now time for you to discover Sydney’s hottest young designers at Bizarre Bazaar, the pop-up twilight market this Thursday (tonight!!) between 5 and 9pm at Sussex Lane, Sydney.

“Bizarre Bazaar is a landmark event in Sydney’s fashion calendar, where the public are invited to experience cutting-edge fashion and explore the zenith of our emerging laneway culture,” said Christopher McLaren, Event Coordinator, A Series Of Fortunate Events.

“Snuggled in between the walls of Sussex Lane, fashion and music will blend to create an intimate shopping experience for all guests.  For four hours only, Bizarre Bazaar gives you the opportunity to purchase collections from 30 local fashion designers – unique, modern, ready-to-wear garments handmade by talented professionals.”

“It’s an opportunity that simply can’t be missed for both designers and Sydney’s fashion-savvy.”

Matt Young of Nine to Five Online spoke about Bizarre Bazaar – “Pop-up markets have really become a staple in the Sydney fashion scene, but it’s so refreshing to see one incorporating all elements of its surrounds; bars, eateries, fashion, shopping, it’s all here.  Bizarre Bazaar has taken the basic elements of a pop-up market and transformed it into a shopper’s paradise.”

Wander between any of the four participating laneway bars, enjoying the fantastic food and beverages designed specially for the event. Soak up the beats of Small Bar’s resident DJ who will be mixing decks for guests high atop the terrace balcony.

A phenomenal opportunity to get up close and personal with Sydney’s most talented young designers.  Show your support by spreading the word – this is a one-off event that can’t be missed!

It’s time a little more Melbourne came to Sydney!

Simone’s Celebrity Birthday Video – by Adrian Erdedi

Wednesday, May 18th, 2011
YouTube Preview Image

On the 25th of April, it was my little sister Simone’s birthday.

I spent a couple of months getting footage together of people she knows and loves wishing her a happy 24th birthday. I gave Simone the video, and she absolutely loved it – she was beside herself.

She is a smart little Down Syndrome girl, she’s very clever, she’s fun and most of all, she is lovable. She loves celebrities, she loves television, she loves movies and most of all loves music. So I made sure I asked the people who will make her smile.

I never planned to make this video public, but I thought it would be a great way to raise awareness about Down Syndrome and urge that everybody does their bit to help these beautiful people feel part of the community. If you want to donate money to the Down Syndrome Association in your state, that too would help tremendously – aiding the people who aren’t as lucky as my sister having a loving home and family around her all the time.

A massive thankyou to:

Carmelo Pizzino

Simone, we all love you very much and we all hope you had a wonderful birthday!

Love Adrian xox

Who Got Crowned Mr Bondi For 2011?

Friday, January 21st, 2011

Two weekends of Bondi hospitality, beach and sun was enough to crown the first Mr Bondi.

Week one saw nearly 30 Mr Bondi hopefuls fight head to head in games, talent quest and quizes tp test the male emotions, all while trying to please the lovely judging panel, Elle Halliwell, Corby Sue, Donny Galella, Grant Dwyer, Julie Lawless and Nat Ayres at Bondi Social.

The somewhat crazy, eclectic group of guys made the audience laugh, made their mouth drop and made them scrunch up their faces in embarrassment for the guys who were simply just having fun.

Twelve men were short listed and asked to attend Bondi FM the following Saturday to go under more examining by the judges, and announce the winner.

plenty of alcohol, on air interviews and speed dating were part of the nights shenanigans, which went well into the night. Familiar faces were in the top 12, like seventy year old social photographer Bill Rankin, Mike Goldman and Russ Ayres, owner of Bondi FM.

But it was the quintessential man who took the tiara, the man with the great smile, fun personality, good sense of humor and the all round ‘Bondi’ guy – Anthony Marich. Long blonde hair, perfect tan and perfect white teeth, Anthony just scraped past Mike and Russ to take the title.

With a plethora of gifts, including a 12 month modeling contract and $2000 garage makeover, Anthony was chuffed with his new title, Bondi fame.
