Hello beautiful people!

Yesterday I had the privilege of attending the “Old Fashion Morning Tea” – an event raising funds for Alzheimer’s Australia, hosted at the decadent yet adorable Hanworth house in East Brisbane. Tracey Watkins, founder and designer of clothing line White Label Noba, began this event three years ago, and is inspired by her own mother, who also suffered from Alzheimer’s.

The event was hosted by Channel 9’s Melissa Downes, who set off in a flurry back to work as her colleague Ian Skippen took over, and wowed us all with his humour and charm. The end of the event saw two auctions with major prizes up for grabs, and raised significant funds for Alzheimer’s Australia! Such a worthy cause: over 62,500 Queenslanders currently suffer from Alzheimer’s or some form of Dementia. Thank God we have brilliant minds with big hearts so eager to help those in need!

Now to the other highlight of the day: the fashion parade!

Tracey showed off 20 must-have pieces from her upcoming Summer 2016 collection. You can find the description and photo for each below (don’t forget to click the photo to see the detail! Tracey is simply phenomenal when it comes to her design and craft).

All in all, it was an amazing time. The fashion, food and company were simply divine, and we were treated so luxuriously. My compliments also go to the organisers of the event, who ensured it ran smoothly! I look forward to grabbing a couple of pieces from this collection, so I’m summer-ready in style!
