Melbourne University's Australasian Association Fashion Show!

If you read one of my posts a few back, you'll know that my CrownedByFlowers flower crowns were featured in a fashion show! And that show was an absolute success, complete with gorgeous models, beautiful styling and incredible organisational skills by the team and crew from Melbourne University's Australasian Association.

It was a wonderful night to be a part of and seeing my crowns being brought to life on the runway is something I will never forget. Congratulations to everyone who was a part of the show, you guys are awesome!

Want to see shots from backstage and the catwalk? Of course you do!

Being cutie pies in the photo booth! Love these girls!

I LOVED the makeup look the artists created for the show - model Jiin Kim looks fresh faced with flawless nude lips, paired with a rad geometric reverse cat eye.

Models Stefanie White, Jessica Muller and Rona Nguyen.

Loving the look created for model Demi Erfurth - bold brows and big lashes, with old Hollywood style side-swept curls.

My best friend and I, both sporting CrownedByFlowers crowns! The white one will be available in my shop very soon.

My camera was having some lighting issues, so most of my photos from the runway came out very warm. This is the best shot I got, and I love it! Thank you to Cameron Cooke from Cookeimages for taking his picture at just the right moment so I could capture this amazing shot!

The photos below are by the very talented Bryan Tang of Facets Photos - thank you for these amazing photos of the lovely girls in my flower crowns!
