The fashions pranced onto the stage and were bold, colourful, and bursting with eye-catching prints. These outfits blew away all the winter chills with a blaze of colours that reminded me of the 80's.
You can wear what you like, almost anything goes, pale pastels or bright. If this isn't for you, then kick aside this frivolity with some statement blocks of colour offering that smart edge you might prefer with the latest eye-catching outfits that announce your arrival. The prints are graphic, bold and bright.
VIP ticket holders were treated to a pre-show cocktail event with delicious canapes and sparkling wine and each received a
Complimentary goodie bag filled with fabulous gifts, exclusive offers from retailers, and a $25 Chatswood Chase Sydney Gift Card. This is a great girl's night if you enjoy fashion and shopping.
