Fashion First at the Hotel Richmond: Skinny Fools + Dangerfield
Bonjour à tous!
Last night I attended an amazing fashion show held at the Hotel Richmond on Rundle Mall in Adelaide. It was an incredibly entertaining event and I absolutely adored all of the pieces I saw. When I first arrived at the event I managed to procure myself a spot in the front row – I didn’t want to miss anything. Two brands showcased their latest looks: Skinny Fools and Dangerfield.
Makeup was done by Inglot Cosmetics and hair by Blow! It’s a Hair thing. And of course, models were provided by Kalou Models (previously FTM Model Management) – one of whom was my beautiful sister Amy Castle! I may be a little biased, but in my opinion she did an absolutely amazing job and she has a fantastic career ahead of her.
Skinny Fools is a label run by the incredibly talented Shayne Brook Simpson. I was so excited to see her pieces come out as I have seen a bit of her work before and I love the style. True to form, the pieces were flowy and ethereal but yet also edgy and modern. The addition of the fluffy handbags to go with each outfit was incredibly cute and brought the pieces all together really well.
I have always loved the Dangerfield label. It has such a different and cool vibe. Deeply coloured patterns adorn 50’s style swirling skirts, and knitted cardigans exist in bright reds and dark greens. I also thought that the men’s range was really awesome, especially the tops with cute lil cherries or chillis printed on them!
What I wore:
I wore my stunning embroidered velvet Poppy Apparel dress, my Novo boots and my deliciously warm cream Bardot coat. Don’t forget that you can get 10% off at the Poppy Apparel shop using the code “chloesvoyage”. I wrote a whole article on my gorgeous dress here.
Before the first fashion designs came out, we were welcomed by our cheerful host Nick, and he proceeded to interview South Australian Miss World Contestant Aishah Stocker. She was raising money on behalf of the Variety Children’s Charity. After the stunning Skinny Fools designs came out, hip hop dancers called Code Magenta who are competing in a championship danced on the runway. It was fantastic and a joy to watch.
I just can’t express enough how much fun this event was, and I will definitely be attending the next one!
Love, Chloe xo
