Mercedes Benz Fashion Week – VIP Evening and Group Show

Brisbane bloggers at mbff

Thanks to Deakin Estate winery BNE Style was invited to attend a Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival Group Shop as VIP guests. With seating in the second row and access to the VIP lounge, it was a very different (and far more enjoyable) experience than the previous evenings where I had been in the photographers pit. Of course I still brought my camera to document this special experience!

The Epicure VIP lounge was brimming with fabulous people who were sipping champagne and relaxing on comfortable couches. The room was beautifully decorated and some areas were candle lit.

My date was Alisha (sister and contributor to BNE Style) pictured below. Part of the fun of being VIP was dressing up, thanks to The Gallery Boutique for my gorgeous wonderland dress by Kuku, I love the colourful print and cut of this dress (perfect for a curvy lady) and Hunter Gatherer jewellery for my bohemian  jewellery.
