Cupcakes & Couture Deluxe High Tea at the Observatory Hotel, Sydney

What a wonderful way to spend a Saturday in September in Sydney! Elegant Andrea, Director of Travelling Divas, is hosting an extravagant weekend at the Observatory Hotel on the 23rd and 24th September. I have been invited to talk about my collection and will highlight some of my favourite 20th century women designers and include their personal stories. Three models will parade up and down the 'catwalk' under the twinkling chandeliers stunning vintage outfits designed by my featured designers. One very special dress I plan to have modelled is by Madeline Vionnet, a pioneer of fashion in the 20s and 30s. This incredible silk jersey cocktail dress is covered with long, sashaying silk threads and is a cream version of a black one The Metropolitan Museum in NYC has in its archives.
