Chambord Shines at Fashion Awards
The Chambord Shine Fashion Awards finals night for 2010 was held in The Strand Arcade Sydney with a glamorous event in a venue that was awash with Chambord’s signature deep purple hue and cocktails.
Ten Chambord finalists from a series of heats in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane paraded before fashion identities, celebrities and guests. The finalist designers’ brief was that their fashion design was to incorporate a horse racing theme. The Chambord Shine Award winning design will also be worn by Gracie Otto at the upcoming Spring Carnival in 2010 so this was another aspect for them to bear in mind.
Melbourne based designers Limedrop, passed the winning post first with a dress in a fabric portraying a digitally printed horse. Showing attention to detail the bottom frill of the dress also bore tiny replicas of the same print. And, yes, the dress is so very Gracie Otto and she loved it. Congratulations ‘Limedrop’ and Chambord.
