Adelaide’s inaugural Vogue Festival came to a close on Saturday with the East End Social Wrap Party on Vardon Avenue. Presented by Realm Adelaide, the sunny afternoon was a delight for Adelaide fashion, food and wine lovers with live music and a screening of Artistic Director Garry Stewart’s Australian Dance Theatre production Collision Course. Guests were also treated to a surprise performance by members of Adelaide singing sensation group Gospolation.
An afternoon fashion parade, styled by Nicola Lynch, also featured new season looks from the various boutiques and labels in the East End such as Sass & Bide and Naked Boutique. Teams from Media Make Up and Clip Joint ensured the models and talent were looked after in the beauty department with fresh, dewy and glowing summer skin clearly the theme of the day.
Prints such as stripes and florals (for Spring #groundbreaking) made their way down on a neon pink runway with a bright colour palette making fashion lovers excited for the warm summer days to come.
The finale featured a tribute to the homegrown, international success story of Australian Fashion Labels. With the company celebrating their 10-year anniversary this year, their successful labels C/MEO Collective, Finders, Keepsake the Label, The Fifth Label and JAGGAR Footwear all featured in the closing ‘Floral Tribute’.
An East End Beauty Bar was on hand for afternoon hair and make up touch ups while Ounce Gin and Xpresso Martini helped to keep guests hydrated throughout the afternoon.
Local DJ’s including Adelaide Fashion Festival’s Music Director Filip with an F and Fresh FM’s CARZi kept the atmosphere alive with Sugar Nightclub’s iconic Driller Jet Armstrong closing the successful Little Lion PR event.
