Charlie Brown Comes To Town For Fashion Friday

Fashion Friday at the Parmelia Hilton is always a fabulous lunch-time event. A few months ago, Charlie Brown rang me and said she would be flying over to Perth for her FashFri parade. She then asked if would I style the event for her. Mmmn yes! I was happy, happy and happy!!

Planning looks, hair, makeup ,models etc started in July. Charlie gave me ‘free-range’ with the latest ‘Highway to Hell, Stairway To Heaven’ Collection. I put in a special AndAndrea request for a CURVY, model mix. The models from Scene ranged in size from 8-16. Special sample pieces were shipped over from east and I combined them, with hot new floor stock from the Charlie Brown Store at Claremont Quarter to create 24 looks in total.

An easy way to style the looks and add accessories was to ‘try’ the pieces on myself. Then mix, juggle, keep or discard! This ‘work in progress’ (Above) occurred at Claremont Quarter.

Prep for the parade started bright and early at the Hilton. Super Charlie gals Kirra, Erin and Jocelyn began sorting, steaming and hanging the garments. Whilst I supplied coffee and cupcakes for the team!!

Circles of Subiaco styled the hair. Glam BIG waves, was my request and they did a superb job! Next, the Lauren Wood make-up team set to work creating smokey eyes and dewy lips!!

The event was so popular, it oversold and had to be moved into a larger Ballroom. MC Julia Clark (Above) looked stunning in her Charlie Brown shift. As I was backstage frantically putting the finishing touches on each outfit, I didnt have time for many pics. I’ve ‘borrowed’ some of the photos below from guests, friends, models and John Koh Photography.

As soon as the show was over, Charlie was packed and ready to travel in style! Loved her Charlie Brown leggings, Mara and Mine slippers and animale suitcase. Dare to wear and smile if they stare…
