Last Wednesday night, designer Amanda Kovaleff launched her debut collection ‘Modern History’ at The King’s Head to a full audience, and for a premiere, the execution was stellar.
The event was coordinated by Caitlin Schuit and hosted by the charming Johnathan Neary, yet Koveleff played a key role in putting the show together.
“I've never planned a fashion event before. I wasn't sure what to expect but I was hoping more than anything the show ran smoothly and our guests would enjoy the evening,” says Kovaleff.
The atmosphere was buzzing as DJ Luke McKay played tunes with female vocals such as Major Lazer & Amber Coffman’s ‘Get Free’, Lykke Li and Lana Del Rey.
Akin to the aesthetic of the collection itself, the demeanor of the models was also ebullient and vivacious; smiling flirtatiously at the crowd, however they could have been more easily seen if there was less effects smoke.
The hair and makeup, by Lauren McNamee, Bianca Mccahon and Marie Zampaglione, was also fresh, classic, and not overly done.
Slim-fitting mini dresses in hues of blue, pink and yellow made a strong presence on the catwalk as well as a pastel pink and green floral print and featured in a peplum skirt and cropped blazer.
For a debut onto the Australian fashion stage, ORBIN. has certainly made a mark. The range will be in stores in September but you can view 'Modern History' online, here.
