My dresser Leonie and I arrived around 2pm at the South Bank Convention Centre, Brisbane. There was a flurry of excitement from the models, designers, dressers and organisers getting ready for the full dress rehearsal, which went off not only without a hitch, but brilliantly. The Tamblyn models that had been there since 9am were fantastic and on the night of the fashion parade did justice not only to our bridal label, but all the bridal labels, showcasing seventy bridal gowns, some of which were only going to be shown Friday night.
Leonie and I had some time to kill between the full dress rehearsal and the actual parade that started at 7pm, so we took a wonder around the QLD Brides Wedding and Honeymoon Expo and met some very creative exhibitors. One exhibitor in particular Vicki from Studio Rosa Floral Artistry and her husband were creating a divine mix of floral art and what started as a conversations between creative minds ended up with Vicki creating a boho styled bouquet for our “Age of Aquarius” bridal gown “Blossom”. Thank you Vicki for your generosity, your beautiful “Blossom” inspired bouquet now takes pride of place on our dining table.
Thank you to all involved in creating such a perfect night and a great way to show off Helena Couture Designs and start the expo.
