Style Melbourne

A Fashionable Mission

Australian and international labels and designers Karlie Gartner, Mijanou Swimwear, Prisma 7, Cholita Bonita and Envoy took to the catwalk last week in aid of Mision Mexico, a charity founded by an Australian couple who courageously moved to Mexico to open their home to disadvantaged children. In the grass-roots spirit of the evening, experimental, emerging and student designers Lisa Adams, Novine Zhang, Chantelle Heldt, Cassandra Kowalik, Imogen Beams, Aidan Carnihan and Sarah Ben-David joined in the runway presentation that also featured Miss Humanity Australia’s inaugural pageant finalists.

  1. Hello, can we please put some of these pics on our website? We sponsored the show and did all of the hair for it.
    Regards Simone

  2. Sure thing Simone. A link back if possible would be much appreciated.

    You jewels were stunning with that fab swimwear. Also love the beauty direction especially for your section and the glitter lips.

  7. Lovely photos! Are there any of mine that you have?
    You took a couple.with my.models and myself in the nude body suits. I’d appreciate it if you couldemail them to me 🙂

    Chantelle Heldt

  8. I love that photos of you and the girls Chantelle!

    Sadly Miss Humanity has said that the photos that include their contestants can not be published as the suits are see-through (even though the audience already saw them live). I can send them to you, but only on the condition that they not be made public anywhere if you still want them? 🙁

  9. Hi,

    I just want to thank you for the mention and the photos.
    We all had a good night at the Event.
    Great shot of velvet black and orange gown/shoes 🙂

    Lisa Adams

  10. No problem Lisa! We try our best 🙂

  11. P.S. If you wouldn’t mind leaving the watermarks on when you post them on Facebook that would be fantastic 🙂

  12. I just checked photos… watermark is still in Banner image just not fitting in frame and profile pic was cropped in facebook to fit in square. All watermarks are visible in My Debut album 🙂

  13. Banner image is fine 🙂

    I was thinking of your profile picture specifically, but the simple mention you added here is adequate and much appreciated.

    Thanks Lisa.
