The Weekend Post - Cairns Eye - - Contents -

While at­tend­ing the fab­u­lous Eye on Fash­ion event at Hil­ton Cairns last week, it quickly be­come ap­par­ent just how ex­cit­ing 2008 is shap­ing up to be. At the event was a gamut of peo­ple from the re­gion and watch­ing them check out Myer’s ex­cit­ing new range, Hi There by Karen Walker, or stop by the Dior make-up booth for a touch-up made it ob­vi­ous just how much Cairns re­ally is grow­ing and evolv­ing. Go­ing hand-in-hand with the re­gion’s progress are some re­ally fan­tas­tic events lined up for this year.

Eye on Fash­ion is a new con­cept which kicked off with a bang. It’s a monthly event in­volv­ing Hil­ton Cairns, Myer and, proudly, cairns­eye mag­a­zine. The pur­pose of the Eye on Fash­ion gath­er­ings is to give peo­ple a great so­cial night out with a chance to check out some beau­ti­ful Myer prod­ucts and fash­ions. And the Eye on Fash­ion events will cul­mi­nate in the an­nual Essence, an eye on fash­ion, in Oc­to­ber this year where big-name Aus­tralian de­sign­ers will show­case their col­lec­tions.

On the sub­ject of big events, Fash­ions on the Field co-or­di­na­tor Amanda Ma­cor and Cairns Jockey Club com­mit­tee mem­ber Jea­nine Cooke, the sub­ject of our cover story this week, were chat­ting at Eye on Fash­ion about how ex­cit­ing the Cairns rac­ing cal­en­dar was shap­ing up to be. Where race meets were once held once or twice a year, they are now held reg­u­larly with men and women dressed to kill for even the more mi­nor meets. So there are fash­ion and char­ity events, race meets and even cairns­eye mag­a­zine’s first birth­day on the hori­zon.

It’s an ex­cit­ing year ahead and no one can re­ally com­plain that there’s noth­ing to do in this great and grow­ing city.
