Spring/Summer Collection Make a Splash With Champagne
Caroline Wild | On 23, Jul 2014
What could be better than indulging in champagne with scones and macaroons whilst watching four beauties showcase new Spring/Summer looks? Absolutely nothing!
The Emporium Hotel have had great success with their previous high teas and their latest hit combo of high tea and salon fashion shows for Biffi, McKinneyâ€™s and Maryonâ€™s was no exception. Guests entered and were seated in intimate groups around the beautiful and elegant Emporium Cocktail BarÂ where champagne was served along with three-tier platters of sweet and savoury treats. The food was, of course, nothing short of delicious.
Next came the fashion. As friends chatted and continued to sip tea at their tables, fourÂ June Dally Watkinâ€™s models gracefully meandered through the guests in a Parisian salon style show. The models were dressed head-to-toe in beautiful Spring/Summer Biffi outfits, Maryonâ€™s shoes and McKinneyâ€™s dazzling jewels.
Trends of the day included beautiful bright colours for the Spring and Summer months including green, orange, pink and lavender, as well as amazing paisley, geometric and polka-dot prints.
McKinneyâ€™s showcased spectacular high-end jewels, with sparkling topaz and black pearl necklaces capturing the eyes of the audience.
The intimate setting allowed for models to interact with guests enabling them to see the details of the beautiful Biffi prints and accompanying shoes and jewellery. In contrast to normal fashion shows where models are perched on a high-rise catwalk, the interaction and engagement of the salon show made the outfits appear a lot more accessible to guests. So much so that after the showcase many ladies headed to the three retailers, located at Emporium in the Fortitude Valley, to get another look at the current collections.
The ladies were able to talk to the models about their looks, take photos and discuss with their friends (over tea and treats of course!) the beautiful trends they had just seen. The combination of delicious food and incredible fashion made it the perfect ladies day out.
