September Collection: Launching Adelaide's Up-and-Coming Designers

On the 26th of September, four up-and-coming Adelaide designers, Revolution the Label, Greta Kate, Chelsea Eve and Tanouk, came together to launch their new collections. Held at the Loft wine and oyster bar, and organised by Ben Conroy from Revolution the Label and photographer Haley Renee, with the help of many, including Atmosphere Events, Pro Show, Mandy Nash Make Up and more, it was definitely a night of fashion that showcased Adelaide's fashion scene as one that is no where near just ordinary!

Noa from X-Factor 2013 opened the show with an amazing performance.... 

Revolution the Label was first to take the stage, the collection had an extremely cool edge with a mysterious twist......yet all the pieces could be worn straight of the runway

Great Kate was next, such a girly and classy collection! It had a touch of Old Hollywood Glamour that made the collection so elegant

Chelsea Eve then took to the runway, such a cute collection.....its definitely going be a favourite for many this summer 

Tanouk closed the show with a cool collection, such unique yet wearable pieces, and very interesting colours

Proceeds from the event were going to The Royal Society for The Blind....with cute little guide dog puppy reps there to remind us of how important it is to give back 

After the show we were invited back stage to meet the was a scene of sheer joy and happiness, the night went so well and everyone was so proud...
