Heart-warming junior models, a proposal and stunning gowns. Night three of FASHFEST did not disappoint.
While I only managed to make it to the second show on Saturday night, there was no shortage of inspiration. Braddon Tailors showcased clean lines, sharp suits and models that mean business. The line is the ultimate collection for my dream office attire which was styled perfectly from the footwear right to up to the cool shades. They create a range of custom made outfits for men and women, ensuring high quality and precision each time.
The much anticipated Eder by Anna show held up it’s promise of providing modern, summer cuts and fabrics with a sexy twist. Models showed off high-fashion shapes flaunting their shoulders in many off-the-shoulder pieces. The collection gave out sophisticated summer cocktail party vibes with many gorgeous outfits perfect for the summer sun.
Stephanie’s Boutique Lingerie brought the heat to our Saturday night. Featuring stunning lace and sheer fabrics, the collection is guaranteed to make you feel empowered. For a lingerie line, one thing that impressed me was the designer’s ability to create lingerie to suit every body shape. The models wore everything from tiny thongs and bras – to full briefs and body suits. The collection embraced curves and celebrated women’s sexuality.
To finish the night, FASHFEST surprised us with an adorable and heart-warming NOMI kids collection, modelled by Canberra’s junior cuties. The line was a debut for FASHFEST Founders Clint and Andrea Hutchinson who have gone and secretly created a kids wear collection! While it was extremely difficult to keep the focus on clothes due to the model’s adorable posing and vibrant smiles, the styling was impeccable.
During the finale walk as we thanked the organisers and those involved in behind the scenes action we witnessed a proposal, right on the catwalk. Producer Nick got down on bended knee to Emi, the backstage manager. Of course, she said yes!
Teary, inspired and glammed up I headed to the after-party. I’ll save that story for another night…
