Flannel’s spectacular night of 1920’s glamour

25 Sep

Have you ever had a dream so beautiful that you didn't want it to end?

Elegant models dotted throughout the crowd…picture perfect
Last night I was lucky enough to attend 'An Evening with Flannel', one of the events in the Perth Fashion Festival line up. It was certainly an evening so beautifully put together, that it was as if I'd stepped into a 1920's dream…..and I didn't want it to end.
Aesthetically impressive in every way, the evening had put me into sensory overload and the event stylists (including former Vogue stylist, Meg Gray), did a wonderful job in taking guests back to yesteryear for a night of Flannel glamour.

Upon entry, guests were offered cocktails served in old fashioned glasses, as well as a selection of delectable canapés. With the bar being a hand painted backdrop, you felt as if you had stepped onto the set of a classic movie being shot in the 1920's. The room was decorated by not only the stunning models in their gorgeous flannel garments, but also an array of old world furniture pieces, exotic floral arrangements and warm lighting.
Guests mingled around the bar area where they were able to get up close with the models and the gorgeous Flannel garments. This was a fabulous way to showcase the collection as you could see how the pieces were crafted as well as the detailing of the fabric and embellishments.
I have had a Flannel infactuation since they opened their first store in Cottesloe – I love the way their garments are so comfortable, yet feminine and luxurious. Kristy Lawrence is the designer of Flannel and it was lovely to see her there last night ….. Read more about Kristy under the 'Infuencing Faces of Style' section of Stylewa.

Guests were soon shown to their seats, allocated with place cards and gift bags at a beautifully set table. The table was dotted with flowers and champagne flutes that were continually topped up with Pommery champagne….. Very indulgent for a Monday!
A parade took place amongst the seated dinner guests and with the 1920's music in full swing, everyone seemed to be enjoying the full spectacle of the show.
A choice of main was soon served and the catering was faultless I have to say! The trio of desserts to follow impressed everyone at our table and the menu was well thought out in following the theme of the 1920's. We could have been in Paris with the Creme Brûlée and the French champagne!
An evening with Flannel was one gorgeous night spent enjoying great food and fashion in room full of style and elegance……
