Run Wild Horses Runway Debut
Recently i had the honor of be being asked to supply jewellery for the Social Studio fashion show held in conjunction with Hunter Gatherer on the 12th of March this year. A runway was constructed ion a side street of Brunswick Street, Fitzroy. The newly renovated Hunter Gatherer retail store was use as a staging area for the event. The retail floor was cleared and used as a presentation area for designers to display some of their work beside their bio. It was wonderful to see my pieces matched with the clothing designs of other young talented Melbourne artisans. Later on that evening the same area became the venue meet and greet cocktail party.
The surprise of the evening came when i found out the film crew that had filming us dress the models, prep the staging area and film the fashion show were from the ABC, and were here filming a report for their show Art Nation. I can't wait to see that.
Seeing the models stroll down the runway wearing my designs gave me such a great thrill, i had little bubbles of pride brewing up inside me the whole evening. What a wonderful night.
