This adds a lot of extras to this fashion launch. Firstly you get to see a stunning fashion parade in a magnificent National Trust setting. If you haven't been to Ripponlea it has to be seen to be believed. The grand ballroom in particular is totally opulent.
The cost of the event is $50 but if you were planning on a Mariana Hardwick dress anyway you get the experience and then there is $50 back redeemable on your purchase. When you purchase your ticket you also go into the running to win a gown or accessories of your choice from The Hardwick Collection. Prize value - $500.
But most importantly the ticket price also includes a glass of champagne and entry to Love, Desire and Riches: The Fashion of Weddings.
This is a separate exhibition that examines the intersection between film, historic fashion and the culture of weddings. It also showcases dresses from world famous fashion houses, such as Valentino, Maticevski and Akira as well as celebrity dresses.
