Adelaide Fashion Festival Official Launch Party

Yesterday evening, we were invited to attend the 2013 Adelaide Fashion Festival Official Launch Party, held at the picturesque Government House....

Adelaide's fashion elite, AFF sponsors, and media came together to celebrate the launch of this years festival with a sneak peak preview of the designs created by the designers involved in this years festival.

After welcome speeches by the Govenor of South Australia His Excellency Kevin Scarce and City of Norwood, Payneham and St. Peters Mayor Robert Bria we were treated to a small designer showcase, giving us a taste of what to except throughout this years festival 

Once the parade concluded we were invited to explore Government House, and discover the models situated in each of the rooms

Stacey Hendrikson is one of the Emerging Designers for 2013....we are so proud and excited for her!

I met the face of this years festival Lucy Bayet (seen below in an amazing red sequined Couture-Love-Madness piece). She was so lovely...with a great sense of humour!

Exploring Government House was so exciting, entering each room was like walking into an art gallery over and over again....

My outfit for the evening: George Spyrou dress, Indian Necklace, New Look Shoes, Vintage Clutch
