Launch Soiree: PAULA WALDEN

Inventive jewellery, accessories and head pieces were on display last night for the launch of Paula Walden. Walden says her studies in interiors, jewellery and fashion have all shaped her creative process and she is often inspired by contrasts and extremes. “I think the fashion industry has contrasts too – it has a glamorous exterior but designing and creating is really gutsy work”. www.paulawalden.com

Also on display was stunning photography by Georges Antoni www.georgesantoni.com

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

It couldn’t of been more breath-taking; Camilla’s show was held in the gorgeous brazilian fields in Centennial Park in a giant tee-pee with an open fire and cocktails. Exotic birds, llamas and children on swings wearing the Camilla kaftans played joyfully. It was air of happiness and relaxation where guests felt transported to a far-away place. Kaftan anyone?
