Event preview: Exclusive local fashion launch at 360Q
The news of our exclusive fashion show and launch of ranges from three Queenscliff boutiques is spreading!. Thanks to Carmel at the Queenscliffe Herald for this great preview of our event on February 28. Read it here!
Barry Iddles and the team at 360Q are collaborating with three Queenscliffe fashion boutiques to host an exclusive ladies luncheon and fashion launch on Wednesday February 28.
Owners of SUKii, Homebody Orchard and Wharf St Apparel have joined with Barry for the event and will launch their Autumn/ Winter fashion ranges with a fashion show throughout the three-course lunch.
Barry, who is a staunch advocate of collaboration between small business, said he was “excited” about bringing this event to life.
“My executive assistant Lucy Carew came up with the idea and I loved it,” he said. “The idea of using our beautiful upstairs function space to showcase some of our local fashion stores is brilliant. We think the ladies of Queenscliff will love it.”
Jacqui Sidwell, Co-owner of Wharf St Apparel, said events such as this were valuable for businesses in small towns.
“Collaborations are great opportunities for local businesses to support their community and likewise local residents to support their local businesses all while having a great day out,” she said. “we would love this to become an annual event.”
Jacqui said there would be plenty for guests to admire from her new collections at the launch.
“We have some amazing knitwear to show from both Gant and Ella Sanders, some super shirting from Maison Scotch and a great range of basics as well” she said. “Plus a couple of new brands!”
And what about new trends for the upcoming cooler season?
“Ohh lots of beautiful trends, says Jacqui. “Some stunning tonal pinks, really cosy knits perfect for our cool winters down on the coast. For the gents we have some great deep turquoise and forest green pieces coming into stock as well.”
The $90 ticket price per person includes a gourmet two-course meal (main and dessert), as well as wine and bubbles throughout lunch, the fashion show and a complimentary gift bag to take home.
The menu is pretty exciting too, with chicken katsu don, 360Q’s amazing interpretation of a Japanese classic: chicken schnitzel with sriracha mayonnaise, ketjap manis, ginger nori rice and pickled vegetables.
A trio of petit desserts including mini banana lamingtonettes, white chocolate mousse with fresh raspberries and sticky date cakettes with whipped swiss butter icing will finish the meal.
Best of all, ladies can purchase items from each boutique on the day and enjoy special discounts.
Doors open at midday.
