Once again Lucy Laurita was invited to co-host what turned out to be a magnificent Parici Rendez-Vous runway event held at the opulent Vibe Savoy Hotel Melbourne.

An intimate afternoon with guests arriving to the beautiful music by Violinist Rasika Dinesh Hewage.

The 100 or so guests enjoyed Devonshire tea and tasty treats as their eyes indulged on the runway fashion showcased by a selection of boutique local designers and Milliner Stefano Costabile of Steven Hats who made the trip from Italy with thanks to event sponsors represented by Giovanni Butera GAIA – Global Association of International Artists and Nixora Group.

We are not a Production Line, we are not producing Fast Throw Away Fashion.

TV Host & Brand Strategist Henry Roth & co-founder of Career Crowd Thinkers flew in from Sydney for a live interview with the international Milliner for an insight into a creative’s world.

Designs by Lucy Laurita opened the show, models walking to the sounds of David Bowie’s song Fame set the vibe.

Parici Women Connect by Pareena Naggea-Sharma support a like-minded network of creatives whilst raising funds for UN Women Australia.

“I am privileged to have a voice & to have this opportunity to share the mic with a room full of amazing people. I usually shy away from speaking but decided it’s time to step up & give people an insight into what being an independent Designer /Artist/ Creative is all about. We are not a Production Line, we are not producing Fast Throw Away Fashion. What you see in our work is the heart of the designer & we can only survive with your support.”
