VAMFF Launch Party

Mr Collins and his team are happy to announce their recent collaboration with VAMFF at their much anticipated launch party. The event is one of the highlights on the fashion calendar and the evening was a buzz with fashionistas, bloggers and photographers alike.  The theme for the evening was ‘Get Close’, which was carried through each element from design & styling,  to the quirky interactive menu laid on by Mr Collins & his chefs.

A stylish warehouse building South of the Yarra was used as the perfect venue for the 2015 launch of the festival.  Inside the sparse area of whitewashed walls, pastel coloured vintage furniture set out a stunning visual backdrop.  The scene was further complimented by a contemporary artistic layout of perfectly still models spaced out in several rows complete with hooded capes – adding a dramatic element to the exciting evening.

As the opening speeches commenced, it was time for Mr Collins and his crew to roll out the canapé service and fill those glasses with Aperol Spritz and crisp champagne.  Guests enjoyed succulent pork kromeski bites, Asian style panipuri’s with a thai coconut consume, and duck steam buns, as the impeccably dressed models sashayed down the runway.

With roving dessert canapés being offered amongst the guests towards the end of the service, our chefs were extremely excited to be working alongside one of Melbourne’s premier gastronomic chefs, Matt Wilkinson, as he prepared his innovative smoked yoghurt ice-cream to tantalise all those tastebuds.
The evening was perfectly capped off with our signature “Coffee & Doughnuts”.   Quite simply; the perfect ending to an amazing event!
