On Saturday, Adelaide’s fashionistas headed to The Art Gallery of South Australia for Honda presents ‘A Night Of Fashion’ hosted by Attitude magazine.
The crowd was transported to Paris Fashion Week as some of Adelaide’s most promising upcoming designers and national & international labels hit the runway in a spectacular event.
This was the first time the Elder Wing of The Art Gallery has been used for a fashion parade and clearly fashion and art go hand in hand.
Guests sipped on Chambord cocktails and listened to some of Adelaide's best DJs Betty & Nan while admiring live art being created by Lisa King
The best part of these events is always seeing what everyone else is wearing and I’ve never seen such a brightly dressed crowd. It seems the women of Adelaide are embracing neon and patterns this season!
Floral pants and pastel blazers are a must have for your Spring/Summer wardrobe if 'A Night Of Fashion' is anything to go by.
The crowd was noticeably in awe as they filed into the Elder Wing of the gallery and it immediately seemed silly that no one had thought to use this as a venue for a fashion parade before!
Hosted by the elegant Casey Saint, acclaimed Australian designers including Carla Zampatti, Bianca Spender, Willow and Scanlan & Theodore previewed their latest collections.
Usually Spring/Summer fashion brings out the colour in a label but there was a surprising amount of black and white this season.
Fashion has definitely gotten a little bit cheeky with sheer fabrics and thigh high slits in skirts dominating the runway.
Local labels weren’t left out of the mix as Paolo Sebastian, Jaimie Sortino and Couture + Love + Madness showed some of their unique designs.
Elegant ballgowns with beading, tulle, sequins and lace were all on the cards. It seems that Adelaide designers love the finer details.
I was left in awe of the young up and coming fashion talent Adelaide has to offer.
Adelaide based online vintage store Claire Inc. brought a twist to the parade as models dressed in designer outfits like Chanel, Moschino and Givenchy from the 90s closed the show.
While the night was all about fashion, one of the highlights had to be the CIBO dessert bar. It turns out even the most fashionable women in Adelaide love a good cupcake!
Rarely do we get the opportunity to attend an event quite like this in Adelaide and the parade was an amazing start to our fashion season.
A Night Of Fashion was definitely a night to remember.
