The highlight of the night was the catwalk that featured 60 models flaunting floral couture and accompanying makeup looks. The theme of the night required students to recreate popular movie stars and scenes. Students created looks from films such as The Devil Wears Prada, The Great Gatsby, Priscilla: Queen of the Desert and Alice in Wonderland.

“Our models absolutely stole the show. Now in its fourth year the event’s catwalk parade has become an important drawcard for people interested in floristry, beauty and fashion – nowhere else in Sydney will you find such an amazing demonstration of skill by floristry, hair and beauty students,” Joanna said.
