Angels with Wings 2018

On October 25, for the first time in Australia, the Angels with Wings runway will open its doors to showcase haute couture, bridal couture and couture body art. The event will also be the first fashion runway to have a Paralympian model. Dressed in couture body paint by published Gold Coast artist, Tracie Eaton, cancer survivor, World Champion, Paralympic Gold and Silver medallist Kelly Cartwright has been confirmed as the finale model to walk down the runway. “I’m pretty excited,” said Kelly. “This will be an incredible event.”

Created by Dressed AU, the show will be held in Peninsula C, Docklands and will showcase exquisite designs by established National and International couture fashion houses.  Held in the theme ‘Sky Forest’, this sci-fi nature theme will transform the venue into a futuristic forestry wonderland. Intricate designs, textures, and visual art will be used along with lighting techniques and sounds of nature.  Promising diversity and beauty, the models will don exquisite butterfly wings, a symbol to promote that beauty comes in many different forms.

As for special guest Kelly Cartwright, she is a true inspiration, demonstrating triumph over adversity.  Kelly was the first above-knee amputee woman to climb to the summit of Mt Kilimanjaro in 2009. She did brilliantly to win medals at major Athletic Championships throughout 2011 to 2013.  Her infectious appetite for excellence and her tenacity in overcoming adversity makes her a wonderful role model.

The Trust Bar and Restaurant has been chosen as the venue for the official Angels with Wings 2018 Media Launch on 23 October.  On the night of the runway, there will be silent auctions including a piece created by Tracie Eaton specifically for the event. All auction proceeds will go towards providing funding and aid to Mercy Ships.

Angels with Wings is only one of six productions created by the Executive Producer, Neva Weber. She hopes to take the fashion events in Australia to new heights and has her eyes set on the Angels with Wings events in Sydney 2019 and New York 2021.
