Former bikie associate Mark Judge raised eyebrows when he sat front row at Afterpay Australian Fashion Week in Sydney this week.
Speaking to The Daily Telegraph’s Confidential on Saturday, the 43-year-old said that he wouldn’t call himself ‘a fashionista’ but enjoyed watching the Bec and Bridge and St Agni shows.
Describing his everyday style, Mark told the publication: ‘Usually I am in an Akubra hat on the farm or up at my house at Vaucluse (in Sydney).’
