Aggie's Recap on the Cairns RUNWAY TWENTY.TWELVE Fashion Show

Betty Tran, Jesinta Campbell & Aggie

 Just when I thought the buzz from Perth Fashion Week was slowly fading away, it continues on to the east coast!
Yes! Betty Tran and Moi Moi were invited to showcase our pieces at the inaugural RUNWAY TWENTY.TWELVE on 9th of June 2012 in Cairns.
With tickets booked, Betty and I set off with our collections in tow for the runway show in sunny Cairns. The trip was a bit of an adventure for us as we were clueless on some pretty key things.

We didn’t know where we were going to stay nor did we have a planned schedule at hand, and we weren’t even sure who we were going to meet?! I guess the only thing for us to do was to show up and find out for ourselves!Well, what I did know was that the event will take place at Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park- next to Dainetree Forest.
Upon our arrival at the cultural park, we received a warm welcome and were led to a bridge lined with fire torches. We made our way pass the bridge and continued our walk through a lush tropical forest subtly lit up with coloured lights along its path that finally brought us to the heart of the show area. I must say the experience of discovering the venue had a sense of mystery coupled with excitement and was pretty magical too!
The venue was packed with more than 500 guests so it was lovely to be seated at the same table with the former Miss Universe Australia Jesinta Campbell, renowned fashion designer Wayne Cooper and Gold Logie Award Winner Karl Stefanovic, who also hosted the show.

RUNWAY TWENTY.TWELVE showcase included Moi Moi jewellery paired off with Betty Tran’s fashion collection. *Moi Moi pieces dazzled along side Betty Tran’s bold and sleek ensembles as models made their way on the runway. Some of Moi Moi's jewellery featured included our Moissanite "Erica" Pendant, "Nancie" Blue Topaz Earrings, "Parnella" Smokey Quartz Earrings, "Ivy" Emerald Earrings, and a mixture of MiABELLE pieces. Other fashion big names like Wayne Cooper, Sacha Drake, Rose Noir, Jayson Brunsdon, Nicole Finetti and Molly & Polly Swimwear also flaunted their striking collections. It was a spectacular evening where Australian finest fashion met Australian culture showcased in a tropical setting under the night sky. Ah~ It was indeed a night to remember!
Big congratulations to Cachelle from Cachelle Model Management and Sarah Jones who organised the event, which I believe left quite an impression on most if not all the guests in attendance.
After an amazing night, I was lucky enough to extend my stay for one more day in Cairns. I didn’t waste much time and took to soaking up the sun and also got to explore for the first time, the Great Barrier Reef!
Being in this tropical paradise was the perfect place to sneak in some time to relax, reflect and gain inspiration to discover all of life’s offerings.
At this moment I am wondering… what’s in store for Moi Moi?
