Fans of fine fashion and automobiles rolled into the Audi Centre Sydney on Monday night (11 July) for the official launch of the new A1 Sportback and new A4, with Bianca Spender and Herringbone also unveiling their new spring collections in a progressive fashion show.
Guests were warmly greeted with delicious canapés, a mix of Gentleman Jack cocktails including the Grand Gentleman and Gentleman Jack with ginger beer, Peroni and Grant Burge Sparkling Pinot Noir Chardonnay, before moving upstairs to the massive workshop.
The industrial space had been impressively transformed into an edgy party scene complete with catwalk running down the centre of the room.
Revelers were seated along the specially designed catwalk for the unveiling of Audi’s newest vehicles – the dynamic new five door Audi A1 Sportback, with added versatility and new 1.2 litre engine and the fuel efficient and sophisticated Audi A4.
As the vehicles were lowered into the room, the runway came alive with the latest looks from Herringbone and Bianca Spender. Opening with bright chinos and bold gingham check shirts in shades of red and blue, Herringbone’s new looks for spring reflected a strong balance of sartorial item dressing and well-tailored suits, fitting for the Australian man’s balanced lifestyle.
Bianca Spender’s models hit the runway, firstly in a gorgeous and feminine lilac georgette plume dress, before moving into mixed suiting and structured dresses with hits of cobalt blue, vibrant green and citrus lemon. She closed the show with evening dresses in lush turquoise, a great compliment to Herringbone’s twist on its signature tuxedo suit with a checked tuxedo jacket. M.A.C and Original & Mineral artists created the runway hair and make up looks for the models on the night.
