Burlesque, macaroons and hair accessories – no ordinary ‘hatters’ tease party
George Giavis, Sydney’s celebrity hairdresser whose salon is all antiques and bevelled mirrors, chose another rather luxurious venue to launch his latest range of hair accessories and hats – a privately owned waterfront apartment in Point Piper.
With the twinkling Sydney Harbour just a bows throw away Georges’ hair accessories all feathered, satined and sparkled in the brilliant afternoon sunshine as patissier Adriano Zumbo’s macaroons and treats disappeared faster than a burlesque dancers garter.
Burlesque is not generally served up with the Moet in Point Piper on a sunny Wednesday arvo we don’t believe, but as said, this was no ordinary soiree. George’s couture hair clips, fascinators and a fabulous full feathered number straight out of 1960 adorned the trio of tantalising temptresses as they sensually strutted their stuff. All done with panache whilst creating roars of laughter as a particular black and white fur coat ‘flashed’ and Andrew Hornery hit Twitter.
Hair accessories are the new ‘must have’s’ and George’s are up there with the best but now his range is also morphing into hats that are brim full of check and style – love ‘em.
The intimate gathering included Charlotte Holmes a Court, Georgie Le Poet Trench, Mary Zavaglia, Mandy Gray, Andrew Hornery, Monique Butterworth, Sarah Todd, Donny Galella, Cameron Pine and and of course - MiSociety.
George Giavis displayed the same enthusiastic energy and personable style to his friends here that he extends to his clients at his sensational Salon in Woollahra. This do was the second themed show George has hosted to showcase his hair accessories range and we can’t wait for him to top this one.
