In its fifth year, CLIQUE Mag played host to A Night of Fashion at Art Gallery presented by Adelaide Fashion Festival on Saturday night.
The evening started with a line that made its way along North Tce, before guests entered the Gallery and were ushered through the Elder Wing by male models sporting Calibre suits from Burnside Village.
Ahead of the runway show, guests gathered in the Gallery courtyard to enjoy Absolut cocktails from The Collins Bar and espresso martinis and rum, dry & lime from Stolen Rum, fine local wines by Fox Gordon and Wicks Estate, local beers by Vale Brewing, premium soft drinks from Bickfords, sweets and coffee from the Public CBD cart, gelato from Gelista and a selection of chic and stylish cheeses from Cremeux Provincial Cheese. Guests were in awe over the stunning floral installations and ice sculptures from Studio Botanic as well as local fashion illustrator Leo Greenfield‘s works on display.
The night’s hosts TEN Eyewitness News’ Rebecca Morse and Kate Freebairn officially opened the evening before all 700 guests headed down into the new runway space in the Exhibition Gallery that was styled by Modern Party Hire. The scene was set with flawless lighting and sound created by the team at Novatech.
Models from Pride Models, Finesse Models and AZALEA Models stepped out in Australian designer pieces that were styled by Vogue Australia‘s Philippa Moroney.
Georgia Alice was the first cab off the rank with their oversize shirting, ruffles, flowing silhouettes and crops.
After showing their collections at ANOF for the past four years, Australian fashion icon Carla Zampatti from Burnside Village and her daughter Bianca Spender showcased their latest collections on the 2016 runway again.
With the two designers Peter Strateas and Mario-Luca Carlucci sitting in the front row, the Strateas Carlucci collection wowed with exaggerated funnel necklines, a dark floral print and a stand-out asymmetric gown with a extra long sleeve.
Signature Aje garments — logo tees, sequinned minis and off-the-shoulder shapes — made their way down the ANOF runway while the two designers, Adrian Norris and Edwina Robinson, watched on from the front row.
Renowned Australian designer Dion Lee, whose designs have been on the international runways, showed his latest collection on the night of bomber jackets, a black and khaki colour palette and signature structured ruffles.
After the show, the drinks kept following and guests were gifted with a goodie-bag from the boot of the Adelaide Fashion Festival Mercedes-Benz cars – overall the night was the perfect marriage between Adelaide’s art and fashion industries.
