THIS IS HOW WE PARTY
MBFF FASHION LAUNCH
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.
MYER SPRING SUMMER SHOW
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.
