2011 Prix de marie claire Awards

Last night Fox Studios hosted a prestigious Prix de marie claire Awards, where the industry and local celebrities honoured Australia’s best fashion designers and beauty brands and products.

Upon arrival, guests enjoyied a glass of Moet & Chandon, before discovering a lavish Parisian courtyard where they were seated at mirrored tables, reflecting the candlelight and chandeliers around them. Following a sumptuous three course meal by renowned caterers John and Peter, the room darkened and the walls suddenly disappeared to reveal the dramatic entrance of forty models dressed in gowns designed by the celebrated fashion finalists.

The 2011 Fashion winners included Willow, who took out the Best Australian Designer Award; Alex Perry for Best Australian Designer (Readers Choice); Ellery won the Best new up and coming Designer; sass & bide won Best Australian Fashion Brand; Cue, who won Best Australian Fashion Brand (Reader’s Choice) and Carla Zampatti who won the Special Achievement Award.
