Boutique 2013 Preview

It’s one of the most anticipated new events on this year’s Adelaide Fashion Festival program, so deputy editor Lucy Ahern was delighted to attend Monday night’s exclusive preview of Boutique. Read on to see what’s in store and find out how to nab your tickets!

I was delighted to take a sneak peek of the three lavish runway looks that will feature at Boutique 2013, a new event on this year’s program, held at lavish prospect salon Tempest Hair on Monday night.

Adelaide’s fashion crowd watched hair stylist Cain Rumbelow and Dale Dorning of Proof Cosmetics (and artist to celebs including Miranda Kerr) work their magic on the Finesse Models’ beauties, while delish Swire & Noble wine flowed and foodies were satisfied with gourmet platters and a too-cute pastel lolly bar.

Using one of fashion’s favourite brands, Kevin Murphy, Cain created inspired looks that were part Grace Jones, part ’90s trendsetter and all fun. With a focus on texture, volume and colour, the hair was perfectly complemented by Dale’s soft yet gutsy makeup artistry.
Thanks again to Cain and Markus of Tempest Hair, as well as Dale Dorning, for giving us insights into the inspiration behind the runway looks – you’ve definitely gotten us excited for Sunday!

Boutique is an unmissable runway event to be held on Sunday, October 20, showcasing 30 of Adelaide’s best shopping havens. It will incorporate ‘Shop the Runway’ technology that allows guests to shop everything from ready-to-wear to couture and swimwear straight off the runway! Hugely successful at this year’s Melbourne Fashion Festival, you can bet your last two bucks that the app will be a hit with Adelaide fashion lovers too.

Buy tickets to Boutique here: (but get in quick, they’re almost gone!)

P.S. Keep an eye on the Swire & Noble Estates’ labels on the night – word on the street is that a certain famous SA designer has crafted a special one for their new drop!
