Last year I was contacted by Ku-Ring-Gai Council to help them with the development of a brand new 50′s inspired festival to be held at St.Ives Showground in August. I was delighted to be involved with the inaugural event.
Besides some behind the scenes, planning , programming and promotion, My main role was to produce and MC two 1950′s Fashion Shows for the day. Using the Vintage Allsorts collection of original frocks and accessories I complied a showcase of gorgeous daywear and show stopping cocktail & evening wear to Parade. Our evening wear collection included designer pieces by Norman Hartnell and Emma Domb.
Make up design for the parade was done by the talented Courtney Hudson and vintage hair stying specialist Adele Durno made sure everyones locks were coiffed to perfection.
It was a wonderful sunshine Saturday and a wonderful event to be involved with. Here’s hoping the council decides to re-visit the idea in coming years and bring back the 50′s to St.Ives Showground again soon.
