Harrolds High Tea & Fashion Parade at Palazzo Versace
TWS Events, Fashion, Food, Beauty, Lifestyle

On Friday 7th October The Wedding Series hosted an exclusive High Tea and Fashion Parade to officially launch the new Harrolds Luxury Department Store at Pacific Fair on the Gold Coast. Held at Vanitas Restaurant at Palazzo Versace, the Gold Coast’s best dressed ladies sipped on Pommery Champagne and indulged in a decadent High Tea including corn fed chicken waldorf sandwiches, blue swimmer crab cornets, Versace signature Valrhona chocolate delice and date custard tart with cinnamon cream.

The parade was curated by Harrolds Owner Mary Poulakis and included fashion straight off International catwalks with iconic looks from Tom Ford, Balenciaga, Balmain, Victoria Beckham and Kenzo. The models walked salon style through the ladies so they could have time to take in the full details of every look.

Media commented that they have never seen a room full of such impeccably dressed Gold Coast ladies and from the images below we tend to agree!
