We teamed up with Capri by Fraser, Brisbane to host the ultimate racing fashion event
Capri by Fraser, Brisbane and the Fashion Weekly crew joined forces and threw quite the soiree for Melbourne Cup! We had the best time hosting a three-course luncheon with flowing bubbly for our fabulous guests. Aspiring comedian, Stacey McGregor was our M.C. and amped up the atmosphere with her vivacious personality.
When you get that dressed up, you want to show it off right? Well, we held our own little Fashions on the Field and it was a highlight to see the many dressed up in glamorous racewear attire as they strutted their stuff in hopes to win the many amazing prizes.
Our salon-styled, fashion parade showcased designs by Maiocchi, Sacha Drake, Urban Prima and White Runway. Seleos provided the elegant jewellery while Meredith McMaster had everyone swooning over her millinery masterpieces.
We decided to have a bit of fun with the hair and makeup looks. The team from Kylie's Professional took our inspiration and turned it into magic. Founder and award-winning makeup artist, Kylie Eustace took our less than traditional approach and completely modernised it. She shook up the sleek ponytail look by adding a side braid detail. As for the makeup, it was kept quite minimal and clean but she indulged in some unexpected colour. The look involved a matte nude lip and variations of bold blue liner to add a high fashion touch without the fuss.
Capri by Fraser, Brisbane decorated the room with an impressive flower wall and the scented candles from Luna Naturel Candles had everyone stepping into a floral cup day affair.
We'd like to thank our event sponsors: Kylie's Professional for the spring hair and makeup looks for our models, and Waterlily for their generous prize giveaways which included beautiful new products from their Spaceuticals range along with indulgent 60 minute facials.
We'd also like to thank our gift bag sponsors, White Glo, Manicare, Palace Cinemas, Glamourflage, Simone Pérèle, Luna Naturel Candles, Kylie's Professional, Seleos, SFH Designs, White Runway and Maiocchi.
Until next year...
