David jones/ Vogue bridal expo!

hey guys!

i had a great weekend this past week dressing for the David jones bridal expo! it was a great event they organised in conjunction with Vogue Australia! it included loads of awesome stalls including Napoleon make up, Kashaya and co cakes and shoes of prey as well as great interior decorator ideas and a fabulous fashion show. the show included wedding gowns, mens suits, page boy and flower girl costumes, lingerie and bridesmaids gowns. i was holding dresses that cost up to $22,000!!! from some amazing designers such as Rachel Gilbert, Oscar de la Renta, Lanvin and Colette Dinnigan.

i took loads of backstage photos (and borrowed a few from friends!) so check out the beauty!

Beautiful Cakes by Kashaya and co!

the awesome shoes from Shoes of prey! where you can customise your perfect shoe!

i'm OBSESSED with this ribbon detail!

 The dresses i got to handle.

 i ADORED this dress. Simple is best.

 hey sexy ladies ;)
me hard at work ;)
I had loads of fun at this event along with the other girls from The Fashion institute. This was my first ever bridal related fashion event and i learnt a lot about how to quickly do up fiddly buttons! it was really great being able to repeat the event (i did 3 days of the same show, there were 5 shows all together) i got to talk to the models and really get to know all the different people who helped out on the event. i'd highly recommend doing as many days as you can for these events! they're great for networking and making friends (i'm now also helping with David Jones's girls night out!)

Working this event was also a learning experience for me on how to dress on these events. so expect an outfit post on the do's and don'ts of dressing as a dresser!
