Glam Adelaide Fashion Writer, Alexandra Ireland, went along to the launch of Davenport’s latest Winter collection at RAFW to see what was on offer and report back to Adelaide fashionistas!
On Thursday night 5th May, Sydney’s lavish Cargo Lounge teamed up with underwear brand Davenport to celebrate Rosemount Australian Fashion Week in style with the launch of Davenport’s latest winter collection; Get Brunk’d.
The name Get Brunk’d refers to the cut of underwear combining briefs with trunks, which formed the base of the collection.
The beautiful harbor side location set the stage for newly crowned Cleo Bachelor of the year, Eamon Sullivan to hit the runway as the face of the Davenport brand.
Urban hip hop sensation Nate Wade entertained the guests as MC for the night, introducing the pre-show entertainment break dancers, and up and coming singer Prinnie who took to the stage and kept the atmosphere alive and pumping.
The Davenport winter collection included a womens and mens range which used both traditional and bold colours in unique combinations and flirty prints. The gorgeous models put on a fantastic show dancing onstage and playing up the centre stage spotlight to the audience.
Celebrity appearances included Australian swimmer Andrew Lauterstein, media personality Michelle Bridges, Adriel Young, Ryan Clarke from Bondi Rescue, musicians Rob Mills and Barry Southgate, all eager to show their support for Eamon.
Guests were greeted with amazing POM cocktails, delicious canapés and Gelatismo ice-cream whilst getting a front row view of the new Davenport range. The gift bags included Davenport udnerwear, Toni & Guy, Encore Beauty, CLEO magazine, Bio-oil, Ferrero Rocher, Invisible Zinc and King of Shave product.
A fantastic showcase of fun, flirty and comfortable underwear designed for a large range of customers to enjoy. The playful prints gave a fun twist to the simple cut designs, and brought the collection to life.
