The magnificent event space

As you know I have been looking forward to the Stonnington Spring Fashion Show at Malvern Town Hall for a few weeks now. I forgot just how breathtaking it is inside the hall,creating the perfect atmosphere and backdrop for this glam event. It was great to see our local retailers in Stonnington come together in a fantastic showcase of new Spring Summer fashion.

Another great aspect of the event is the induction of two designers into the Stonnington Hall Of Fame, which was established in 2001 to recognise the contribution made to Australian fashion by locally based designers, retailers and manufacturers. This year it was two of Melbourne’s recognised names in fashion, Lisa Gorman and milliner Gregory Ladner. I loved hearing their interesting stories. Lisa was actually working as a nurse before storming in as one of our most well known designers. She was living with the girls that own FAT stores, she played around on the sewing machine,ended up selling a few pieces in FAT stores and the rest is history. Very inspiring!

It was cold wet night (even though it was sunny during the day, typically Melbourne) but that didn’t stop me from dressing up in summer attire. I wore two well known Stonnington labels that were both featuring in the show Wayne Cooper and Mimco. Wayne Cooper’s new Spring Summer 13 collection has punches of citrus and clean sharp lines. He has definitely catered for girls going to the races this year. Mimco is also gearing up for the Spring Racing carnival which is always busy time for them, so many gorgeous hard clutches, pretty headpieces and heavy looking accessories which I can’t get enough of.

I headed backstage to take some shots before the models walked the show, it was also a great chance for me to get a close view of all the beautiful pieces. All we need is the weather to start shining so I can put together some trends inspired from the show. I am already looking forward to the event next year.
