Last night on television, one of my hats was seen on 60 Minutes reporter, Liz Hayes -
Reporting Black Caviars win at the Royal Ascot races in England. Thrilled to see my work on tv, and the colour looked great on Liz!
Also sending a big congratulations out to the Black Caviar team, well done.
Here's my Launch your Label, Semi-finalist video entry!
Thank's to Daz at Sticky Productions.
It's a very busy little studio right now, and the most exciting bit of news here, is that my Millinery Designs made the Top Ten in Launch your Label Australia!
I've just sent off a piece for judging for round two... Here's a peek at the item.
I went with one from my 'Divine Deco' theme, 'Apex' in Raspberry & Gunmetal grey Silks. Apex stems from my look at Art Nouveau artists like Lalique and some entomology research when making some 'butterfly' hats.
For a fly, the lacewing is really quite a pretty little bug.
What's next for the competition? Despite a minor spanner in the works (thank-you laryngitis for stealing my voice, day 5 now, seriously), a little video is currently in the works, with or without my voice - it should be up here next week.
The evening went off without a hitch!
Guests were greeted with a glass of bubbly (served by a dashing young waiter i might add, the ladies were a flutter), and the collection was launched.
A lovely speech by Melbournestyle Galleries Maree Coote, and assistance on the night by hair stylist Thomai ensured the ladies could try on the pieces in style. Photographer Anna Zaharakis snapped some candid pics of the guests, whom included singer Sammy Paul and jewelry designer Aaron Simpson.
A Salon Soiree, featuring Millinery items I am currently putting the finishing touches to.
Please join us for a glass of sparkling, 6-9pm, Monday 12th September 2011, at Melbournestyle Gallery South Melbourne, RSVP essential: email@example.com
Makeup for 8 models in 2 hours!? Mission impossible, almost...
Side show Annie Costume Parlour, acquired my creative makeup artistry for the launch night. It's a neat little boutique style costume hire shop, specialising in Burlesque attire.
The theme for the night, is a bit of a circus carnival, which as some of you may know, is one of my favourite themes to play with.
The cast included: A lioness, a cheetah gal kitty cat, a strong man (ha, that was fun), a gypsy, a dancing girl, and of course, a few clowns..
Great night, here's a little of what i came up with.
