Melbourne Fashion Week Plus could not happen with the support of the following amazing businesses.
Founded in 2002 BELLA Management has been at the forefront of the changing face of fashion by introducing the industry to a more holistic and healthy approach to model representation. At BELLA we care about and manage each model, artist and client as an individual with goals that are unique. We pride ourselves on going the extra mile and developing long term relationships with everyone we work with. As a fully integrated agency BELLA can provide you with a hands on approach that also has a broad and diverse range of opportunities and the ability to fulfill any brief.
Combining all her experience as an agent, Director Chelsea Bonner founded BELLA models in 2002, a model agency focused on health and changing the perception of beauty, with the goal of redefining the boundaries of fashion models. BELLA is now known all over the world and her models have appeared on ‘World First’ covers and main fashion editorials of Sports Illustrated, Vogue, ELLE, Cosmopolitan and Marie Claire to name but a few.
Iridis Cosmetics is a magical land where you’ll feel gorgeous, worthy, pretty and fabulous – just as you are. Your inner beauty is celebrated, your points of difference applauded, we all wear the perfect shade of foundation and have the right lipstick to complement our features.
Iridis is an Australian-owned makeup company, and our Makeup Artist Educators teach women how to apply their own makeup, using our full range of exceptional Iridis makeup products, at our free, fun, hands-on and informative Glamtorials™ (Group Makeup Lessons). Our team of outstanding Hair & Makeup Artists also specialise in hair and makeup glammification for events, weddings, photo shoots and all other times you need to look and feel your most gorgeous.
Iridis Cosmetics aims to remind women how beautiful they really are, helping them feel confident, happy and relaxed with “Makeup Made Simple”.
In 2008, Celebrity Makeup Artist Peta-Gai McLaughlin and her partner, Kelly Lowe, had an idea to not only create an exceptional range of make-up products, but a company that embodies the #loveyourreflection positive self-esteem movement.
The Iridis makeup products are cruelty free, not tested on animals and are derived from plant-based ingredients. They were created to help make our clients’ mornings simpler, their nights out more fun, and their special events that little more special.
Over time, the Iridis mission has evolved into wanting to work with women of all ages, size, skin colour and make-up skill to help them feel gorgeous, confident, empowered and fabulous through makeup workshops and the extremely popular Iridis ‘Glamtorials™’.
At an Iridis Glamtorial™, which is a free group makeup lesson, Iridis Makeup Artist Educators share their makeup skills and techniques, and impart their top tips for how clients can start loving their reflection again, raise their self-esteem and embrace their most gorgeous self.
The Iridis goal is for you to #loveyourreflection after you spend time with us and we’re grateful for the opportunity to share that self-esteem gorgeousness with the world.
The 6FT6 Wine Collection was first started in 2004 by Austins & Co. when our 90 acres of Pinot Noir located on our Sutherlands Creek property was producing great quality fruit. We wanted to be able to provide the people with a Pinot Noir that was affordable as an everyday wine. Since that time the range has expanded to 6 products including Prosecco, Crisp White (Pinot Gris/Riesling), Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and Shiraz. These cool climate wines are an easy drinking wine to be enjoyed now with or without food.
Our aim is to always over-deliver on flavour and quality and to create a wine that you can enjoy over a long conversation with your friends and family. We are serious about quality wine, but we refuse to take ourselves too seriously!
The Sauvignon Blanc, Crisp White, Pinot Noir and Shiraz are all single vineyard wines, made from fruit grown on our Sutherlands Creek vineyard. The 6Ft6 range has high standards as it is made by Austins & Co.; a winery rated 5 red stars by the Australian Wine Companion, 2016.
