Sequins were the hot trend for the night as were sleek high top buns and rock star loose curls framing the faces of nude lips with the always sexy cat eye flicks.

In the eyes of an Intern....by Akahsha Edwards
“Ahhh I’m late for work!” I wailed to my neighbour as he stared in disbelief at my designer dress and sky-high heels…

Last night the Official Blogger team made our debut at the Launch party for Gold Coast Fashion week at the Oracle Zen Garden. The first major event on our fashion week hit list, we arrived with a whirlwind of make up artists from Runway Express, the makeup sponsors for the event.

Like a deer in the headlights I stepped out of the car right into the waiting lens of a media photographer… my first social snap ever!! We were then ushered through the extravagant venue and up into the Zen garden where all the action was set to happen.

At the entrance my nerves kicked in as a bevy of beauties and celebrities swarmed around the media photographers and cocktail bar. With a delicious cocktail in hand (Acai berry flavoured mmmmm) I followed my boss - Publicist and Official Blogger Missy Robinson as she circled among the glamorous leaders of the industry (looking fabulous despite acquiring a broken toe just hours beforehand).

The venue was BEAUTIFUL… a stunning rooftop garden fit to be filled with the gorgeous people spilling through the doors.  DJ Bure’s beats filled the space and set the rhythm for a night of relaxed and sophisticated banter. Much to my tastebud’s delight, tasty sweet potato falafels and mini meatballs were offered to the svelte crowd, and I ducked from cameras as I gobbled the delicious morsels.

As the night wound down we suddenly found ourselves in the last group of revellers, and left the venue to continue our adventures into the night.
