Last week, Audi Centre Sydney rolled out the new improved Audi A4 and launched the Audi A1 Sportsback in conjunction with fashion labels Bianca Spender & Herringbone, both treating guests to their summer collection for 2012. Phoebe Garland writes.
It was a fun fashioned mix of a crowd, consisting of fashion folk including the newly appointed editor Kellie Hush of Harpers Bazaar, Ex- Fashion Director and freelance Stylist Jo Ferguson and a mix of Audi V.I.P’s and fashion media. Aside from the exciting new Audi A1 sportsback, which boosts a 1.2 litre engine and the new improved A4, guests were graced with bright chinos and bold gingham in checked shirts from Herringbone for the males.
Bianca Spender’s summer collection consisted of a sublime mix of colours in mixed suiting and structured dresses with hits of cobalt blue, (my personal favourite colour), vibrant green and citrus lemon. Evening dresses in lush turquoise, which seemed to balance perfectly the structured tuxedo suits the male models, were adorned with.
Guests were treated to a runway show of the summer collections and refreshingly a very generous buffet and the usual elegant canapés. Guests included, Kellie Hush, Maude Garrett, Kate Ritchie, Sireshan Kander, Gracie Otto & Jane Fleming, Jo Ferguson, Lizzie Lovette & Jane Fleming.
