WEST: TPFF Myer Fashion Lunch
LOCATION: Perth Convention Centre.
COMMENT: Having never attended a Myer Fashion Lunch, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. Women come from far and wide for this annual event, which is a two-course lunch combined with a Myer fashion showcase. I was more than a little overwhelmed when I arrived to see 500 woman dressed to the nines… The combined noise alone was something else! The fashion was expected but the grand scale of this event blew me away. Floor to ceiling velvet curtains were drawn to reveal a ballroom filled with tables and flowers, with one mega runway dividing the room down the centre. I made my way through the glamorous crowd to find my table, which happened to be the very same one Jen Hawkins was seated at- talk about the best table in the house! As a guest of Myer, I probably should have expected something this major but was literally speechless by the magnitude of the day. It was The Bachelor’s Nikki (fresh from the finale controversy) who was the cherry on top of my gluten-free desert that cemented this day as an actual killer. The Myer Fashion Lunch has become a highlight event of Telstra Perth Fashion Festival due to the winning combination of indulgent fashion and food.
