Two days of parades brought to life the more curious fashion moments during the past 100 years and allowed me to use outfits from the Darnell Collection I haven't seen on the catwalk before. The most fun aspect of developing parades is the opportunity to choose from stunning models who all have their own look and bring out the best of their outfit in a most personal and unique way.
We had Pucci, Vivienne Westwood, JP Gaultier, a bride's country wedding dress from 1905, as well as wool, silk, cotton and polyester.
There was so much going on onstage at Ballarat!
Thank you to my fab models, Eva Baker, Missie Villamor, and
the Ballarat Heritage Festival Weekend committee
