The ambience was one of luxury, the walls were padded leather, the girls pouted with a bright lip and winked with a glitter lined eye. I wasn’t at Studio 54, but the David Jones autumn/winter collection launch. The decedent evening played homage to an era GFC was just an unusual combination of letters.
The runway parade showcased a multitude of high end David Jones designers from One Teaspoon to Alex Perry. The show theme of 70’s glamour was tied woven through the array of designers thanks to Nicole Thompson of MAC Cosmetics and her creative team.
The models sported one of three carefully crafted looks, with one of each David Jones ambassadors leading the pack. (Nicole Trunfio, Samantha Harris, Alexandra Agoston) A Charlie’s Angels – Farrah Fawcett look, an “Addicted to love” Robert Palmer look and my favorite creative look – the Biba. Nicole T chose bold lips, dewy skin and and overload of glitter to create the looks using MAC Cosmetics.
