On Friday night, my good friend Heather Davies and I ventured over to the other side of town to Sydney rd Brunswick to see a fabulous fashion parade. Entitled, "The Cat's Meow" the show featured the 2010 Winter Collection of Melbourne label, "Chitra's Closet". I had worked with Melbourne designer Chitra on her parades in the past and this time it was fun to go along purely as an audience member to just enjoy the show. Knowing the stress and hustle and bustle that goes on backstage, it was amazing to see the show from the front of house delivered with complete perfection, with no knowledge of the usual wardrobe dramas that go on behind the scenes..misplaced gloves, shoes that don't fit and hats that fall off !
The show was especially exciting for Heather as it featured her range of accessories, "Trouve accessories" a business that she began only a few months ago. This was the catwalk debut for Trouve and the range was a hit! The quirky, vintage inspired designs teamed beautifully with Chitra's forties inspired pieces. As you can see the look was glamorous yet not overly 'frilly'. Pieces that are superb as styled here and teamed together with complimenting items from the range, but pieces that have so much character that they would look great teamed with denim or wardrobe staples such as black pants.
We are already proudly stocking a range of limited edition Trouve pieces in store at Fanantique and are very excited to announce that we will be introducing some selected pieces from Chitra's Closet into the boutique too! We think that her classic, yet quirky style will compliment our vintage pieces superbly.
While there is nothing more fabulous than finding a gorgeous vintage piece, there is nothing more frustrating than finding that it doesn't fit!!! Chitra's garments are renowned for their great fit and flattering shapes...so we can't wait to get the range in store!
