It’s here, it’s here, the most wonderful time of year! Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival Brisbane kicked off in show-stopping fashion last night with the Pacific Fair Group Show at Old Government House.
Blockbuster Australian designers and international sensations, Aje, alice McCall, Bulgari, Christian Louboutin, David Jones, Dion Lee, Flannel, Ginger & Smart, Incu, Maje, Manning Cartell, Michael Kors, Myer, Sandro Paris, Sass & Bide, Scanlan Theodore, Sportmax Code by MaxMara and more hit the runway, much to the audiences’ delight.
The pack of models were led by model-of-the-moment Lianna Perdis, daughter of iconic Australian makeup artist, Napoleon Perdis. Napoleon directed the beauty-vision for the event and watched the show from the front row with his wife.
Naturally the standout for me was the collection from Manning Cartell, who I have been a long-time fan of. Funnel, Incu and MaxMara are also well worth a visit next time you are at Pacific Fair as each presented a flawless collection.
All the gorgeous imagery you see in this post was shot by the exceptionally talented Richard Smith who will also be posting more stunning imagery on his Instagram account @rsit_richard – make sure you follow!
