Fashion Fridays Final On A Sunday

Last Sunday Capulet hosted The Final of the Fashion Fridays Young Designers competition, which has been running for four heats and showcased dozens of talents Brisbane designers who have battled it out to claim their prize as the winner.

The models were dolled up by the girls from Stefan Australia and draped in wears from both the winners of each heat, as well as four wild card designers. I found it interesting that Fashion Fridays selected three wild cards from the very same heat and only one from another heat. Heat three must have been an amazing heat to warrant this. In my opinion, all the designers in all heats have had something to offer and the final was only a snippet of the talent showcased over the past four heats. Here's a look at the showcased collections, including competition winner Fabled & True.

The judging panel for the finals included non other than Emma Gaffy from No Name Style and Kyrane Hounslow from Pretty Please Boutique, amongst a handful of other Brisbane creatives. The determination process for the grand final winner was inspired by game shows such as Dancing with the stars, where the audience had a chance to place an anonymous vote, but the judges also voted. The result? Fabled and True took out first prize!!!! Absolutely amazing designer and a delightful person to know.

Lexi had the most adorable shoes on from Sportsgirl. I couldn't help but get a photo of them. My shoes are from Factorie, which I paired with a dress from The Hiding Tree and crop shirt from Dickybird Dresses.
