Harbour Room, 16.30pm
Stephanie by Conley and Cranford has been around since 2003. In the first half of the show, girls arrive, carrying ice cream cones with pastel scoopy ice cream to match their dresses. Beautifully cut, strap-less dresses with classic 50s inverted daffodil shape (a la Marilyn Monroe) in bright colours with white contrasts were dominating the scene. The second half offered a lot of nude, beige, and animal/snake skin print. A fantastic bright sky-blue dress was the item that caught our attention in the show.

Harbour Room, 16.30pm
What's the result if the French Navy get to organise a St Tropez yacht party in Australia...? You get Nookie! This label presented gorgeous flirty beach/casual wear, in a refreshing way that we loved. Patterns, stripes, paisley, and plain colours all carried by the same model were prevalent. The key to manage a pastiche of such different patterns is the genius of putting it all together. Seeing this, is like mixing a 1987 cocktail with maritime/sailor fashion influences (a la classique mode de Jean Paul Gaultier), shaken slowly with a 90's gold edge and finished off with the most recent bit of millennium style... In other words, a brilliant show that definitely gets our nod. More images here.
