Gorgeous children, fluffy owls,sounds of live Peruvian flutes, printed cushions , furry lamas, colourful parrots, smoke rising in the sky and a huge teepee tent welcomed guests to the Camilla show set in Centennial Park this season. Inside the shady tent, the carpeted runway meandered around a central flower garden , tiny sprinklers created rainbows , incense burned releasing a wonderful scent , guests drank a minty concoction and a fire pit burned brightly in the centre of it all. The details were never ending, as they always are when Mark Vassallo directs a project. Just when I started feeling like moving in, Georgia May Jagger, the stunning daughter of Mick Jagger fittingly opened the show. I say fittingly for the clothes presented had a decidedly rock / boho aesthetic – looking like they would fit in quite nicely with the crowd at Woodstock back in the day or present day Coachella. Sure there were kaftans aplenty for all those loyal fans to the Queen of Kaftans but I quite loved the more youthful feel – the little embellished sundresses, blouses that were a riot of colour ,colourful bustiers , wide legged pants and floaty skirts . It was like finding perfect hippy vintage finds that , let’s face it, so rarely happens anymore . There was a lot of : I want/ I need happening and I had a sudden urge to kick off my heels and take off my tailored clothes, get myself some turquoise beads, arm bands and a bunch of Camilla clothes and run off into the countryside with a gypsy. I can’t wait for a summer festival so I can pretend to do just that.
