Socials: Lyn Mills’ event of the week / Fashfest finale

Share Canberra's trusted news:


WITH marketing to make many wax lyrical, reality had us follow the fantasy of fashion fabulousness to the coldest depths of Brindabella Park for the second year of Fashfest.

It coruscated through our tiny space in the universe with, for the designers, hopefully sales; the models, a valuable and exciting experience; and the make-up and hairdressing team, the recognition they deserve.

So, too, acknowledgement of a formidable team that, on an international stage, would cost a motza and probably not work as well.

We were there to look at fashion; an eclectic mix of wearable, conceptual, sustainable and fashionable creations.

Some were sensational, such as Rockstars and Royalty’s stunning collection from its meticulous and multi-talented creator and designer Vicky Kidd-Gallichan.

Those darlings of the fuller figure fashionistas, Darla and Blossom Darling were showing that good design, good fabrics and attention to cut, colour and creativity is mandatory.

And Hannah Parris, of Audrey Blue signature, was showing trans-seasonal designs using ecologically sustainable fabrics with the imprimatur of the Global Organic Textile Standard.

Exposure at this level sets the bar high for content quality; it’s so important. Audience thermals compulsory!
