Putting on the ritz at Palazzo Versace Hotel Gold Coast

To kick off the celebrations of the opening of 'Coming Into Fashion',
a Conde Nast photography exhibition sourced from the publisher's Paris and New York archives, at the Gold Coast City Art Gallery,
the magnificent Palazzo Versace Gold Coast hosted curators and media to a glamorous morning tea in the foyer of the hotel, overlooking the crystal blue water of the swimming pools on a late spring morning.

Rylee dazzled in a pale blue and pink flowery chiffon tea gown,
which suited the richly ornate and colourful interior.

Thank you to The Versace Hotel, a partner of the exhibition, for inviting The Darnell Collection
to such an elegant event.

Coming Into Fashion runs until 18th February 2018

Even our tea cakes were fashion themed (and delicious)
My ruby, emerald and pearl earrings fit in with the glitzy decor (at 10:30am!).
