How cool is this! We're holding our first ever fashion parade for Melbourne Cup!!!
For my overseas readers, the Melbourne Cup is a horse race...yes, just a five minute horse race...but in Australia it's a very big deal. It's a public holiday in Victoria and widely celebrated throughout the country, and is one of the biggest national excuses for women to dress up and party!!
Miss Chrissy from the Lindy Charm School For Girls will be our host and compere (you can catch her on KAK this Friday morning btw), we'll be showing some our latest range plus some of our never-before-seen, most special pieces from Sues and my personal collections.
My lovely girl Ellie will be modelling for us...
As will my gorgeous Erin of Evelyn Ellenor Millinery
Not to leave out the stupendous Desiree!! I have a sneaky feeling she'll be stealing the show, just quietly. If you hadn't already worked it out, this was the reason for our 'dress-ups' last week-a fitting for the parade.
We'll have pro photographer Mike Hilburger there on the day (see his work here and here) to take some stills for us, Mike not only co-owns fab vintage shop Hobohemia which I blogged about here, but does all the stills and television work for the Brisbane Vintage Fashion Fair, so yes, I'll have some fabulously awesome shots to show you all after the event.
With Chrissy on hand to do hair and makeup, and Mikey for photos, time permitting I'll get some good shots of myself done....
Better watch out, I'll be totally famous then...MWAH HA HA HA!!
