Clifton Hill Costume and Textiles Launch Event - behind the scenes

We organised the launch event for Jen Ford of Clifton Hill Costume and Textiles and it was a huge success. The event was well attended and attracted a diverse and enthusiastic audience. I have never been to a catwalk where people gasp, cheer and clap outfits as they are modeled.

Here are some behind the scene photographs to paint a picture of the event.

Ali and I styled areas with era specific props from 1920s - 1980`s.

We will post some gorgeous photographs of our models in their era specific tableaux once post event publicity has been secured.

Emma Kitching worked with us as an intern and helped us to create the catwalk see her blog post here.

The event was supported by a wonderful team of hair and make up artists, here are a few photographs of them in action.
