An event of true indulgence taking the Brisbane style scene to a whole new level. A silent auction - with fabulous items donated for the auction, all money raised was to support The Starlight Childrens Foundation. Live entertainment from a fantastic merging of two of Brisbanes well known festival bands Shannon Marshall Quartet & Afro Dizzy Act set the mood for the night, fun! We were entranced by European styled couture by Daniel Alexander. Flowing dresses in soft colours, fabulous models and stunning eye wear from the always inspiring, evocative da rin optometrist. Daniel Alexander created a wardrobe for one very special young lady from the Starlight Foundation, who looked well beyond her young years as she took to the catwalk like a true professional! A dream come true for her on a very special night. Great courage! Well done Anika!
Fine French dining was provided by Sofitels Prive 249, the dessert in particular was amazing! To accompany our meals we were treated to the most wonderful wines by the historical Seppeltsfield and distinctive Dutschke winerys from the Barossa Valley.
Speeches were made by the sponsors of the night, including Graham Campbell-Ryder from the Red Hill Gallery and Dennis Da Rin from da rin optometrist, who gave us an insight into their arty worlds. The boys from Seppeltsfield and Dutschke talked of their lives as Wine makers. Look out for Wayne Dutschke's book My Dad Has Purple Hands. Great for the children who grow up amid grape vines and barrels.
The event was a success by Panache, and the huge effort of bringing together 'All to do with Style’. Panache’s events amalgamate fine food & wine experience, premium fashion, art and complementing music & entertainment.
