The first in­stall­ment was a glam­orous, star-stud­ded af­fair hosted by Trea­sury Am­bas­sador and Chan­nel 7 per­son­al­ity Damien An­thony Rossi who along with Hunt+kelly fash­ion de­signer and noted stylist Kel­lie Al­der­man cu­rated a scin­til­lat­ing fash­ion pa­rade fea­tur­ing Bris­bane’s most iconic fash­ion de­sign­ers and la­bels in­clud­ing Paul Hunt, Ge­orge Wu, Gail Sor­ronda, Chelsea De Luca, White La­bel Noba, Wil Valor and Urb­bana as well as ’fu­ture de­sign­ing icon’ Alex Wilkin-parker. Upon ar­rival to the Trea­sury Ho­tel guests were in­dulged with Moet & Chan­don and canapés at a pre-show cham­pagne cock­tail party and then ush­ered into the ho­tel’s Eu­ro­pean-style court­yard. Front row guests in­cluded hair and boat­ing le­gend Ste­fan with part­ner Rose King, Real House­wives of Mel­bourne’s Janet Roach and Susie Mclean, Bach­e­lor in Par­adise’s Nina Rolle­ston and renowned fash­ion il­lus­tra­tor Ker­rie Hess. Model and en­ter­tainer Erin Hol­land opened the show with a beau­ti­ful ren­di­tion of Rhi­anna’s Di­a­monds which was only fit­ting given Tif­fany & Co jew­els were be­ing fea­tured in the pa­rade with each front row guest re­ceiv­ing one of their dis­tinc­tive light blue gift bags. To the de­light of the style savvy crowd, one fash­ion de­signer af­ter an­other ap­peared on the run­way at the end of their col­lec­tion with an ac­tual Bris­bane icon of tele­vi­sion, sport and fash­ion dressed by the de­signer. Icons that hit the run­way in­cluded long­time news­read­ers Chan­nel 9’s Melissa Downes and Chan­nel 7’s Sharyn Ghidella, The Great Day Out host Sofie Formica, Olympic swim­mers Mitch Larkin and Emily See­bohm (in their last pub­lic ap­pear­ance as a cou­ple), rugby league star Sam Thai­day joined by wife Rachel Thai­day, fash­ion doyenne Deb­o­rah Quinn and in­sta-fa­mous style blog­ger Nikki Parkin­son. The glit­ter­ing event con­tin­ued in the ho­tel’s posh Ryan’s on the Park lounge with an ex­clu­sive Moet & Chan­don-spon­sored VIP af­ter-party at­tended by the fash­ion de­sign­ers, celebri­ties, me­dia iden­ti­ties and VIP ticket hold­ers.
