WHAT a week it has been in Bris­bane.

The Mercedes-Benz Fash­ion Fes­ti­val is one of the big­gest events of the year, so please ex­cuse us while we have a big lie down.

In all se­ri­ous­ness, the past week has seen the city’s big­gest names en­joy­ing hav­ing a squiz at some de­signer wares. It all kicked off last Sun­day with a launch lun­cheon at city hotspot Black Bird at Ea­gle Street pier.

Fes­ti­val di­rec­tor Lind­say Ben­nett wel­comed guests in­clud­ing de­signer Alex Perry, ac­tor Daniel MacPher­son, Chan­nel 10 pre­sen­ters Ge­orgie Lewis and Josh Holt, and Vivien’s Model Man­age­ment’s Ge­or­gia


Not only were guests treated to a de­li­cious three cour­ses, but they also had a peek at some of the week’s best looks.

Hosted by Stu­dio 10’s de­light­ful Sarah Harris, ev­ery­one seemed to be get­ting in the spirit. Harris, who is ex­pect­ing her first child in De­cem­ber, told Sun­day Con­fi­den­tial she was thrilled to be back in Queens­land.


Mon­day night’s Myer Spring Sum­mer 16 Fash­ion Show was a high­light.

Spot­ted in the VIP area were Myer de­sign­ers Alex Perry, Arthur Galan, and Aje’s Ed­wina Robin­son and Adrian Nor­ris plus Olympians Sally Pear­son and Susie O’Neill. The girls from Brissie band Shep­pard were there show­ing their sup­port of lo­cal de­sign­ers.

Amy and Emma Shep­pard (right) decked out in new sea­son Aje, told Sun­day Con­fi­den­tial they were ex­cited to be home af­ter an ex­ten­sive over­seas tour.

Other stars of the night were Myer am­bas­sadors Jen­nifer Hawkins and

Kris Smith. The A-lis­ters couldn’t keep their eyes off the duo as they strut­ted their stuff on the run­way.


Af­ter a big week and more out­fit changes than you can count, Bris­bane’s most stylish came out for one last hur­rah on Fri­day night.

De­sign­ers in­clud­ing Darb Cou­ture’s Brad Webb and White La­bel Noba’s Tracey Watkins sat front row to watch their cre­ations saunter down the run­way.

Chan­nel 9 boss Kylie Blucher looked like she could be on the cat­walk her­self, rock­ing a stun­ning Toni Mat­icevski skirt and top.

Re­porters Ebony Caval­laro and Tessa Scott were just a few fa­mil­iar faces at the wrap party, which was buzzing as ev­ery­one got stuck into the free-flow­ing cham­pagne.
