Back to the future
DESIGNS inspired by yesteryear will showcase on the catwalk at this year's annual Voyeur Byron's Fashion Expose to be held in Byron Bay on September 30.
An eclectic mix of collections from 12 local designers, modelled by more than 20 models, has been chosen for the popular fashion show.
Designers Galit Massuri from Massuri and Madonna Bain from Eco Intimates are excited about this year's extravaganza.
"Voyeur is a great platform for local designers to showcase their designs and to connect with other designers," Galit said.
"This is my third time at Voyeur and the show is really the only fashion extravaganza on the Northern Rivers."
Galit's designs have been inspired by the '50s and feature full-circle, high-waisted shirts and dresses, Peter Pan collars and lots of lace.
Madonna Bain's lingerie range features the glamour of the 1930s.
The Voyeur Designer of the Year and Outfit of the Night will be chosen by a panel of judges, and one model will be crowned Face of Voyeur 2011.
Winners will receive cash prizes from sponsors Southern Cross Credit Union and byron-bay.com.
The Designer of the Year winner will also receive a two-hour mentorship with fashion broker and Voyeur judge Wendy Powitt. MC for the show, to be held at the Byron Bay Community Centre theatre, is Mae Wilde.
Doors open at 6.30pm and the show kicks off at 7.30pm. Tickets are $30/28 and are now on sale from www.byroncentre.com.au or phone 66856807.
