Fashion Parte and RAW fashion Agency once again held another successful Styling Workshop Event on Saturday the 16th. This time held at the amazing Michal Negrin store in Double Bay. The store looks as if it came straight out of a fairy tale story with it’s Baroque themed, lavishly decorated setting which included wonderful ornaments, mural walls, brocade fringed fitting room curtains and 1960’s fun figurines excitingly placed throughout the store.
The workshop started with a deeply relaxing meditation and positive self visualisation session conducted by RAW Fashion Director Faith. The meditation and self visualisation helped to empower the group of women and also gain a better sense of self appreciation.
After the powerful healing session, the group of women had their body measurements done by the wonderful team of styling assistants on hand. The group of women got to discover which type of body shape they were including pear, apple, hourglass and rectangle which was then followed by Jennifer giving a very informative and interactive body shape and styling presentation. Jennifer explained the different techniques of enhancing the different body shapes by a couple of ingenious ways of styling. Simple tricks, such as a nip and tuck of a garment dramatically changed the whole look of one particular woman and left her and others amazed at how effective it was. It was definitely exciting to see such dramatic transformations happen right in front of our eyes!
The styling session with Jennifer was then followed by make-up artist Amy Chen, who gave incredibly handy tips on how to apply make-up and gave the us the know how on which colours are in for the summer season. The ladies also had the chance to get complimentary make-up done by Amy.
Deliciously healthy brunch was then served at the courtyard of the Michal Negrin store. The menu consisted of a tasty herb potatoe and quinoa dish and salmon and ricotta tarts. The Ladies also had the chance to indulge in a bit of retail therapy with dazzling accessories, make-up and rails of beautiful clothing categorised under the different types of body shapes. Brands included Christopher Hanlon, Paul and Joe, Michael Kors, BCBG Max Azria, Naughty Dog, ISA Frignani and of course Michal Negrin and more.
It was a fashionably exciting event where the ladies had the chance to discover, mingle, shop and play dress up!
