ADELAIDE FASHION FESTIVAL OFFICIAL OPENING PARTY
On Friday I had the honor of covering this event for my friend Betty
Samis’ ‘All About Entertainment Page’
Last night was the Official Opening Party for the Adelaide Fashion Festival. The sun was shining as people proudly arrived at Governor’s House, the event kicked off with a speech from the Governor himself (His Excellency Rear Admiral Kevin Scarce) welcoming everyone with an introduction as to what to expect for Adelaide Fashion Festival and thanking everyone for their ongoing support.
The speech was then met with a red carpet fashion parade including pieces by George Gross & Harry Who, who recently celebrated their 40th Anniversary.
For the rest of the night everyone spent walking through some of the stunning rooms at Governors’ House, which were filled with gorgeous Models wearing some of the items we will be seeing in the coming week.
I had the opportunity to talk to the ladies from Bellissimo who were over the moon to be involved in this year’s festival, the look they went for this year was sleek, modern with a hint of rockabilly that fit nicely with the trends for Spring this year. You couldn’t miss this years ‘Face of AFF´(Adelaide Fashion Festival) Lucy Bayet looking drop dead gorgeous in her red sequin gown.
During the night I also caught up with two very popular designers, Paul Vasileff of Paolo Sebastian and Cristine Tridente of Couture + Love + Madness who were also extremely excited for this year’s Fashion Festival which kicks off on the 18th of October with ‘Variety on King William’
Location: King William Road, Hyde Park
Time: 11:45am – 3:30pm

Overall the night was a success with everyone who attended proud to see the local talent and help their visions grow, the love of fashion was definitely in the air and excitement exuded with chatter increasing from the guests who sipped on champagne and were served with exquisite cocktail platter selections.
The hype for this Fashion season is stronger than ever an event not to be missed.
