I did it. The launch party & fashion parade of the winter collection on Wednesday night was a feat & a half. I was sent a few 'angels' at the last minute that saved my sanity & my skin.
There weren't as many people there as I'd hoped but those who were were 'blown away' by the collection & suitably impressed. They loved it & importantly, had a lot of fun.
I had six of the most gorgeous models, most who had come from work, some who were not well but they were very professional & played their parts with grace & without a single complaint. It was an absolute pleasure.
Wonderful hairdressers Farleigh Poole & Noriko Ayai did an excellent job & Farleigh had also come from working at her salon all day. Again, very professional, easy to work with & able to translate what I wanted with ease.
'Shirleys' angel from heaven Dan, who arrived at the last minute to help me finish the banner & get over the last hurdle. Luv ya Dan.
Photographer Josie Richardson...what can I say about this woman....well she is just bloody brilliant & I look forward to working with her in future.
Models : Jana Robinson, Paige Craswell, Heloise-Laure Ruinard, Cammie Nott, Lara Cresser & Katty Luxford.
