Westfield presents Australia's Biggest Runway Show, Customs House (13 Apr 2011)

Customs House, Circular Quay, Sydney NSW 2000


Unlimited Fashion One Checkout

Customs House was alive with fashion and many extraordinary tall, slim and good looking models to launch the Westfield online shopping. Led and finished by Jessica Gomes and joined by apparently 38 hand-picked Westfield shoppers it was a well-attended free event by invited VIPs and the public. Melissa Hoyer was the host and didn't escape the makeup artist touchups by Napoleon Perdis and Redkin was in full swing touching up the models hair as they prepared to strut their stuff on the 50m red carpet catwalk. From bikini clad women to men with towels wrapped around them and Wonder Woman and Captain America in between, this fashion show seemed to have everything covered except the VIPs in the centre with the best view. There were also some serious shoes parading around which I'm sure were the envy of some women, and perhaps delight of most men. No food to be seen but I spotted some refreshing San Pellegrino drinks being served to the VIPs — they sure needed it under the sunny weather with no cover. The hour long parade was fun to watch and if only there was some food added to the mix it would have been perfect.

hi tina, and don't forget Captain America hehe

hi j bar, i can't believe you missed it too. you would have got some incredible shots i'm sure.

hi sugarpuffi, i guess it was a BYO event for food. a missed opportunity. i think Ben & Jerry's would have been a great side cart to have there.

hi bel, hehe i think you're right.

hi Accommodation Sunshine Coast, thanks for dropping by

hi Gastronomous Anonymous, i was mostly using the event to test out my new camera and seeing how it would perform with a fast paced fashion event. i love fashion events.

hi alison, toilets were located level 1 of customs house. pretty clean and the front door was worthy of a shot for its graphic but didn't take it :-)
