And the winner is… Fabled and True! After 4 huge heats Fabled and True were voted the winner of Capulet Bar’s Fashion Fridays by a team of judges and the fashion savvy audience.
Using beautiful vintage fabrics and lace, these unique dresses (pictured below) are produced sustainably in Brisbane by the lovely and talented Jaye Wolfe (pictured above centre).
The runner up was Flynn who’s structured plastic accessories and simple yet flattering silhouettes impressed the judges.
The event vibe was more subdued than usual, mainly because it was a Sunday, but the designers still brought their best pieces to compete for the title!
