Mimco: Paradise Battalion
April 2, 2013
The visual bonanza that was the Mimco Parade for this year's L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival. Set inside the grand confines of the Whitehouse Institute, we were treated to a live opening performance by Nicole Wheatley, which set the tone for the collection titled Paradise Battalion - a new romantism where an overwhelming and intoxicating beauty has replaced the brutality of war & industrialisation. A dazzling array of jewels and handbags were paraded along to a stellar soundtrack. Apart from presenting the spectacular limited edition pieces (hello, shoulder armor) another highlight was up-and-coming Australasian actress, Sophie Lowe, on the runway as their special guest model.
