Spring Unveiled

IMG_92744

Last night I was lucky enough to attend the Spring Unveiled Gala and Fundraiser in support of the Miracle Babies Foundation. The event welcomed spring fashions from some of Perth’s emerging designers and showcased new collections from more established retailers. An audience of VIP guests, the media and members of the organisation were presented with a fashion parade, charity dinner and silent auction on the night.

Miracle Babies was established in 2005 and is Australia’s leading organisation supporting premature and sick newborns, their families and the hospitals that care for them. Guests enjoyed pre-drinks, canapes, piano performances, live models and art deco surrounds in Hyatt Regency’s VIP area, before heading into the main ballroom with the sound of African drums and elaborate floral centerpieces at each table.

The catwalk had a wall of faux flowers and backstage was all colours, chaos and absolutely beautiful freelance models.

I was particularly impressed to discover the emerging designers’ work, their prints, their pizazz and their energy but what really took my breath away was the models! None of them were with any of Perth’s professional agencies, yet there were some who genuinely should be and I love discovering fresh new faces for my lens. I haven’t been to a show like this in ages and am happy to support the cause. Fashions came from Be Africa and Jonte, as well as online stores – Moss Clothing and By Appointment formal wear boutique, Lace & Button where the likes of Badgley Mischka was ready to hit the runway.

Pre-drinks with this guy, how lucky was I! I wasn’t actually drinking (or eating) as I am doing my juice cleanse, however visual stimuli does feed my soul
