One Op Fashion Show @ Circus Nightclub
It seems charity fashion events are .. well.. in fashion. The first year event management
students of Swinburne University Prahran hosted the One Op Fashion Show @ Circus Nightclub on Friday the 8th October. streetcredthread went along with Mitch Gobel from Plae Time photography to bring you the best from the show.
Alexandra Christakakis (20) Opal Vagelatos (19) Diandra Haddow & Michael Steenhuis (18) had to come up with an event concept, and a panel of teachers selected their event out of many to be staged. Most of the material used in the designs throughout the night were recyclable and money raised was to be donated to the salvation army. Prizes in the form of $400 worth of jewellery were handed out throughout the evening, from three separate raffles.
Most importantly, the showcase of student fashion was well above usual standard. Designs by Mellina featured lace with monotone colours on both structured and flowing pieces. All of her garments were hand made and sewn by Mellina herself. My favourite items were a red chiffon dress with black beading on the front and a black lace back and a 50s inspired black bodycon dress with a loveheart neckline.
Event host Opal Vagelatos also presented a collection of clothing as part of her night fashion course. Garments included a fairy-tale gone wrong hoodie, a stunning rouched denim and floral print dress and a yellow maxi dress.
The final show by George was impeccable. George clothing is available for purchase in Melbourne, and the label has some pieces that I would trade my leopard print leggings for. My favourite piece of the entire night was a cropped brown leather and suede jacket worn by my favourite model of the night, Andrea Plowman.
This girl is stunning. Seriously. When talking to her she stands about a head higher than me,
and I was in 7 inch heels. Andrea will sadly be leaving us in February but for a good reason; she has been signed with an agent in Sydney who plan to send her across to the states. All the best Andrea, we will be keeping a close eye on you!
The night wrapped up with gift bags and huge thanks to family and friends.
