One of the perks of blogging is occasionally getting invited to cool events. This doesn’t happen too often in my case, though, thanks to never being in one spot long enough to make a lot of connections. So, when it does happen, I get REALLY excited. Haha.

Needless to say, I was thrilled to be invited to Marie-France Group’s VIP Party & Runway Show last week! They had hosted this event in honor of their one year anniversary in their Walsh Bay location. (They’re a luxury boutique hair and beauty salon here in Sydney.) We were treated to a night of drinks and yummy food and a catwalk show featuring designs from BLKIVY and Stacey Heaney. This post will be a few shots of the party and runways shows, plus a short video of the end of the runway show.

VIP Party

The night was a wonderful mix of people from both the beauty and fashion world here in Sydney. I don’t always do too well at these types of events because I’m rather awkward and introverted…but, it was very easy to strike up conversations with everyone here! There were so many friendly people with similar interests, who went out of their way to make me feel welcome. I also thought it was nice they let me bring my husband along as well. (He doesn’t usually get to come to these things.) We had such a lovely time!

Wahoo! All kinds of champagne too.

The location of Marie-France Group’s salon is absolutely beautiful too. This particular area has been going through quite a bit of construction and renovation. And most people aren’t even aware that anything is open over here. But there are some awesome restaurants and bars next to Marie-France Group. (I’m planning to head back to that area this weekend!)

Marie-France Group Stylists
All the lovely people who work for Marie-France Group.

I’ll definitely be heading back to Marie-France Group for some hair help in the next couple weeks as well. My goodie bag I received for the night included a haircut and style…so, I’ll be sharing some before and after pics of how that goes soon! Stay tuned!

We both had received goodie bags too! I really appreciated that!

Runway Show Featuring BKLIVY & Stacey Heaney

We were also treated that night to a runway show featuring designs by up-and-coming Australian womenswear designers, BLKIVY and Stacey Heaney! I’ll share a few photos and a brief video of that below.

I do apologize, though, because the photos I took of the runway shows weren’t the greatest. And it seemed pretty much only the photos I took of BLKIVY turned out.

The video below shows the work of both designers at the end of the show. (Sorry, again, this is from my InstaStories. So, it’s not the greatest quality.)

I thought both ladies did a lovely job! And a big thank you, again, to Marie-France Group for letting me be part of their big night. I can’t wait to head back and have them transform my hair! I’ll do a post on that within the next couple weeks. And Wednesday’s post will feature the outfit I wore to this event. (It was the first time I’ve worn anything backless!)

I would love to hear your thoughts on the night in the comments! And if anyone has any suggestions on how I should have the stylists at Marie-France Group do my hair, let me know too! (I’m so clueless in the hair department.)


    1. I hear you! I never know what to do with myself… this was a rare occasion where everyone must have sensed my discomfort and tried to get me out of my shell. It was very nice! It also helped to have my husband come with too. 🙂

  1. Hi Lindsey,

    It looks like an amazing event.

    And I like the goodies you received. Kerastes is an amazing brand! I am glad that you had a great time and I can’t wait to see your new haircut (once you have it done). Have a wonderful start of the week, dear friend! I look forward to your new post tomorrow to see what you wore.


    1. Hi, Miri! It was such a lovely time! And oh yes, Kerastes is fantastic. I haven’t used it in years because it wasn’t the easiest to always find in the US. But I’m looking forward to using it again. And thank you! I really don’t know if I’ll be doing anything too drastic to my hair, but we’ll see. 🙂 Hope you have a wonderful week too!

  2. Such a lovely event, that from Marie-France group, and how beautiful you looked! And with a goodies’ bag, how cool is that? And the location, you are right, seemed to be really perfect! I liked the styles I saw, very nice pictures and I know you must have had a great time – I would, for sure! Hope you have a very beautiful week, dear Lindsey, thanks for showing such a lovely event, so well organized!!
