It has been over 10 years since I last attended the Ekka, so when I was invited to have a day of adventure with fellow Brisbane blogger, Ashleigh (www.theblondesilhouette.com.au), I knew I couldn’t pass up the chance to rediscover my inner child.
Our first stop was the Commbank Natural Fibres Fashion Parade. On show were beautiful garments, designed by a mix of Queensland’s top designers and up-and-coming stars (from QUT and MSIT), all created from natural fibres such as cotton, wool and silk. There was plenty of eye candy with colourful spring designs and soft flowing garments that are perfect for the warm weather we are currently experiencing.
Then it was off to meet and greet some baby animals and try (in vain) to get a good photo with them! As the sun was setting, we ventured to side show alley for a ride on a childhood favourite, the ferris wheel to view the Ekka from a different perspective!

Alexis Dawn – I love this colour for spring!
Gail Sorronda – I love the colourful stripes and the model’s platform sandals!

Ashleigh just before we went on the ferris wheel, her candy coloured sunglasses and lipstick gave her outfit a fun pop of colour.
