Fashion voyeurs show up for show

LOCALS gathered around the catwalk yesterday for a glimpse of Byron Bay's emerging fashion talent.

Four designers and models showcased their creations at the Byron Bay Community and Cultural Centre as part of a preview for the upcoming Voyeur fashion event.

The designers on show were picked by organisers for the event having been winners of the People's Choice Award at the Voyeur 2009 fashion expose.

Belle Byron Bay designer, Shelley Eacott, watched local model Nicola Emanuel model her vintage-inspired clothing down the catwalk at yesterday's preview.

“I was so impressed with the event,” she said.

“The camaraderie between designers, how different we all are and the admiration for each other's designs is fantastic. I think clothes really come from someone's personality.

“My label is very bohemian chic and that is a reflection of my personality.

“I have worked with women for over 30 years. I have learnt a lot and I never thought I would be where I am today.”

Applications to be in the fashion show are still open and organisers are calling for emerging talent, including models who are looking for a place to strut their stuff.

There will be a casting day at the Byron Theatre on August 11 and 12, between 5pm and 6pm.
