With September just around the corner so too fast approaches one of the biggest events on the fashionista’s calendar… Fashion Connect. With the 2012 event set to be bigger and better than ever, you’ll definitely not want to miss out on the unique and eye-catching display of avant-garde Melbourne fashion… all for a good cause of course.
The intimate cocktail soiree is this year held at The Carlton’s stunning Hasti Bala bar and hosted by Stephanie Ryan-Smith. Get ready for a night that combines fashion and art whilst promoting and celebrating a new generation of talented Melbourne creatives with everyone from designers, photographers, stylists, bloggers and editors in attendance. These industry big guns are ready and rearing to reveal the burning questions you’re dying to know about their latest projects and what really goes on behind the scenes…
But wait… there’s more! This year there’s over $5000 worth of prizes set to be given away boasting some big names including Marc Jacobs and Lqd Skincare. No fashion event would be complete without dishing out a prize for best dressed so get frocked because one lucky winner will walk away with a MAC make-up gift box valued at $1000 and a Polaroid Camera valued at $150. One blessed beauty buff will even walk away with an entire years supply of Lqd skincare products and a $250 gift card from Manhor.
Not to worry if you’re not equipped with a winning streak, there are still some seriously awesome prizes you can nab yourself… In true testament to the saying “the early bird catches the worm” the first 200 guests to arrive will be gifted with a luxury VIP goodie bags chock full of high-end treats valued at more than $200.
