Fashion+Aid was a glamorous fundraiser for the Starlight Children's Foundation, a big fashion & entertainment evening at the Palladium Ballroom in Crown Casino on Saturday night. The sold-out event included 1000 guests enjoyed vying for loads of fabulous auction items and watching the entertainment.
The fabulous theatrical fashion show had a "Four Seasons In One Day" theme, with many of Australia's well-known designers getting involved, including JASONGRECH, Ed Hardy, Bardot, mesop, AprilMarie Swimwear, Travisty and BleeckerSt sashaying down the catwalk against a backdrop of multi-dimensional theatrical effects.
Hosted by Matthew Newton, the star of Underbelly 2, with a special appearance by Millie, the face of iSelect ("You'd have to be puffin' muffins" is my fave of her quotes), plus performances by TV Rocks DJ Grant Smillie and Melbourne Demon and It Takes Two performer Russell Robertson, accompanied by Phil Ceberano. Jason Coleman from ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ and his Ministry of Dance troupe certainly caused some excitement too.
I had the chance to watch some of the performance rehearsals during the day and was very impressed by choreographer Pete, all the dancers, singers, and models. Everyone worked hard to create a fabulous show, and did a wonderful job.
The crew from FTV were there to capture the event, I'm really looking forward to seeing how it looked from the front as of course I was backstage putting joolz onto models so didn't get to see anything of the final show from an audience viewpoint.
