Blue Mountains Portrait Photographer: 'Fashion in the Blue mountains'

Cocktail Couture at Blackheath with the Darnell Collection:

Our friend Charlotte Smith, curator of the Darnell Collection, (click HERE for full details and Charlotte's story) has organised a fashion parade as a fundraiser for Blackheath Public school late last year.  Never have we seen in Blackheath, so  many beautiful models parading with her unique collection of vintage clothing and accessories for the occasion.   The event was very successful in raising some much needed money for the school.

The community hall  got literally transformed into a very nice arena for this exciting event ... 
here are some of my pics...

A very successful event with fashion in mind, some wine on arrival,  cakes and nibbles, local businesses donated items for the raffles  to help make this fundraiser a success: 'Dreaming of Dior', 'Dreaming of Chanel' books from Charlotte's Darnell collection,   'Minxy vintage' books  from best-selling author and vintage lover: Kelly Doust, CDs from local jazz singer Penelope Sai,  all made a very pleasant evening had by all !

Looking forward to more of those  events in the Blue mountains !

Have a fantastic week !
