I was invited to attend the Redkite Ae’lkemi Charity Show last week at the Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club in Peppermint Grove by a wonderful woman, Ryah Prentice, whom I met at Fenella Peackock’s show the previous week. I gladly attended after hearing about the work of Redkite, an organisation who supports children and young people and their families through cancer by providing emotional, educational and financial support.
As soon as I arrived I was ushered backstage – basically my travelling home away from home – no matter where or what the event is. Style Voyeur being referred to as part of the furniture backstage at a shows these days is not an uncommon notion and I feel the below image is further proof of this. I walk in the door, pull back the curtain and amongst the usual suspects, Lauren Wood’s people doing hair and make-up, model’s getting primped and preened, see Jacqui Brown of Beautiful Events who hands me a bottle of black nail polish and says…….please? The photo is courtesy of model Fabienne Vanderhaeghen. I am wearing a dress by one of my absolute favourite WA designers, One Fell Swoop. Jacqui welcomed guests on behalf of Ae’lkemi’s, Alvin Fernandez and the event production and styling was thanks to Tony Salom of OMG Events.
This woman (who is a babe and I loved her 50’s sunglasses) reminds me of Rachel Zoe. I told her so and luckily she took it as a compliment.
Obsessed with these clear chairs. What a cool styling idea!
This girl didn’t know I was taking her picture at first, she was just waiting there, looking very pensive.
Ae’lkemi’s exquisite tailoring
I love that the hair person is perfectly matching for this backstage moment.
