Runway: Melbourne Cup

Melbourne Cup done right.

The event of the season brought together a lot of things - well dressed men, amazing food, and an excuse to adorn yourself in flowers and drink bubbly all day. 

But our favourite aspect of The Rose Garden, was by far the fashion show. Modelled by AZALEA Models, and styled by Stacey Hendrickson, the Designer Showcase put together by Ellery Events Australia was full of feminine cuts, revealing hem lines, lace, pinks, and flirty florals. 

The showcase featured ten local retailers and emerging designers, including Shayne Brook, Astor + Tyne, Sooki, Style Capsule, Style Society, Glamour House, The Studio, By Jem, Mimi Jane Millinery and Harvey The Label

A stand out for us was the handmade frilly dresses by Shayne Brook, the floral pieces from Sooki, the gold cross earrings by By Jem and the amazing millinery that adorned each girls head by Mimi Jane.
