Rosemount Fashion Festival

Oglivy Action, the communications company in charge of creating profile opportunities for Rosemount Estate, invited me to design a dress made from wine lables for the Rosemount Fashion Festival launch party at the Loft club in Sydney. In a couple of days, I coordinated the construction of a glamourous black taffeta ball gown. I extended the opportunity to my first year styling students in the degree program at the Whitehouse Institute, and encouraged them to participate by pinning on the labels from large at the hemline to small at the top. Our gorgeous model, Heidi, modeled the garment over a four hour period, while we worked to attach the labels. In the end, the client was blown away and we had a great time creating this stunning garment for Rosemount.
