pacific fair shopping centre opens the week in brisbane

mercedes benz fashion festival

The Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival is Queensland’s premium fashion event, showcasing some of the best national, local and up and coming designers that our country has to offer.   It’s such a great week full of exciting events that really drives the retail industry by offering current in store collections and presenting them after the shows in a unique “shop the rack” scenario.

Pacific Fair Shopping Centre opened the 2017 Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival at Brisbane’s Old Government House in spectacular fashion.   The atmosphere was electric.   It was so lovely to sit under lights and get lost in an epic 45 minute show with look after look from some of my favourite designers.  Pacific Fair presented strong collections from a selection of their top stores like David Jones, Myer, Harrolds, Scanlan & Theodore, Aje, Dion Lee, Manning Cartell, Alice McCall and Ginger & Smart, to name a few.

I was dressed by Janine Edwards Boutique, located at Pacific Fair and my bag was Bulgari from the Serpenti collection.

I was lucky enough to be loaned the Bulgari bag for the evening and of course had to take it out for breakfast the next day!   I thought the bronze worked really well with my rusty dress on the night and matched my shoes perfectly.   They are certainly magnificent bags and I’ve had my eye on them for a while.

We stayed at the stunning Next Hotel Brisbane which was an exciting home away from home right in the city center with shopping right at your doorstep.   Read about my stay at the hotel here.

Thank you to Pacific Fair for having me as your guest and for looking after us so well!    The goodie box was pretty special and kept me going for the duration of our stay.   My favourite items?   The Moet piccolo and transportable phone charger…  Like, WOW!   Also a big thank you to Spin & Co for organising, you guys are awesome.

All in all, I’m so glad the Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival in Brisbane has been relaunched and I look forward to supporting this amazing local event which drives our incredible retail industry.
I think it’s wonderful how an event like this can be open to any fashion enthusiast and really caters for the actual customer who loves to shop.   Because in the end, that’s what it’s all about!

I can’t wait until next year!
