The Australian Fashion Chamber put on a fantastic function to honour some of the Australian Fashion Industries best in a formal and private setting. Theo Onisforou (long time owner of The Intersection) opened his lovely waterfront home to a bevy of fashion industry experts. The Intersection is the last of the quality fashion precinct that once was the countries best shopping destination. Some of my favourite suppliers have been in this area for some time now.
Designers, journalists, bloggers, stylists, PR's, retailers and their partners enjoyed a very special midweek party. Mike Dotch kept the ambience on point, canapés to die for and endless bubbles kept the experience rich crowd happy and satiated. Simon Lock was an apt master of ceremonies and did a lovely job of interviewing the latest three 'Walk of Style' inductees. Leona Edmiston, Robby Ingham and Gary Theodore all gave stirring speeches about the journey and their experience and passion for the industry. Exciting times lay ahead for the Paddington Fashion Precinct and there was much chat about past, present and future developments.
I had the pleasure of rubbing shoulders with Glynis Trail-Nash, Kate Waterhouse, Christine Centenera, Wayne Cooper, Josh Goot and Romance Was Born. So much experience and success in one room. Not your typical fashion event, instead a warm, friendly and respectful atmosphere permeated the room.
Do yourself a for and go for a stroll around the quality assortment of fashion stores in The Intersection on the corner of Oxford and Glenmore road, you won't be disappointed.
