Thurley Spring/Summer 2011/12 Collection

nt My fashion adventure after LIFE with BIRD continued, and as night fell, I was led to the heritage Woollahra Post Office.  I walked into a place covered with pretty vine leaves, violins playing, and in the centre, a gorgeous banquet with fruit and cheese.  The location complimented Thurley's Spring/Summer 2011/12 Hybrid collection perfectly!  Models graced the post office in gorgeous pieces..gowns, dresses, skirts, maxi skirts, pants, structured jackets with exquisite detailing, trimming, sequins, pleats, fringing and embellishments.  Soft tones of nude, olive, charcoal and an unexpected striking red!  Yes, The Lilac Mannequin loves!  The collection included elegant and feminine pieces, inspired by designer Helen O'Connor's European travels.. a mix between "East meets West."  To me, the collection symbolised wealth, glamour and high society.  According to O'Connor,  "A Thurley girl is someone who has a character of wearing something different and unique; like sequins to breakfast."  
I hope the pictures I took do the collection justice!
