Celebrating the 20th anniversary, this year will be a huge extravaganza yet if you can’t grab a front row seat, you can check the highlights broadcast at Pitt Street Mall. Also make a note in your diary for the 18 – 19 April weekend signature public event that features global designers from Berlin, New York, Miami and Istanbul.
Kicking off with models over 5’10” on the 12th is the Runway opener followed the next day by the official welcome. The opening show will include Strateas.Carlucci, Swarovski and Watson X Watson, to name but a few brands. On the 14th, you can check out the industry seminars and runways by Ginger & Smart, Han and Zhivago. With industry seminars most days and a flurry of showcases back to back, you really do need to ensure you have a change of clothing for each runway – or at least turn your jacket inside out as a double up makeshift Plan B attempt.
There’s a who’s who line up of sponsors including MAC, Ciroc and Redken. We’re not sure if there are goodie bags for attendees at the public event but we expect there will be product placement giveaways and retail therapy opportunities for ticket holders.
After a few long days of weighing up what’s hot, what’s not and how maxed out your credit card is, you’ll need to tone down on the spending spree. This is where Sydney’s boutique hotel comes into play. One of the most affordable 4 star hotels in Cremorne Point, in a glamorous residential area, you can create your own runway during a short walk to the ferry. Just a few minutes ride to and from the Harbour and overlooking the stunning Sydney skyline, Opera House and Bridge, the views are priceless. If you think stardom glitz is just for catwalk viewing…think again. Check our home page video showing sensational aerial views from the Manor. Kick off those heels and enjoy the video show!
