By: Carmine Pascuzzi

Australis Cosmetics celebrated its 21st Birthday in spectacular fashion recently, treating guests to some uniquely Melbourne fun and fashion. Flown in from all corners of Australia, the privileged guests started their day at the gorgeous Hotel Windsor, before a quick stroll to the waiting Australis Tram, complete with the Australis tram conductress.

“We wanted to create some theatre and fun to celebrate Australis’ unique Melbourne heritage and its sponsorship of the Caulfield Races this year”, said PR Manager, Maraika van Wessem. “The Australis tram was not only a fun way for interstate guests to view beautiful Melbourne, but it was also a handy transportation to the next venue.”

After disembarking at Albert Park Lake, guests were thrilled to find waiting princess horse and carts to ferry them around the lake to their next destination, one of the most prestigious events on the Melbourne social calendar, The Caulfield Races Ladies Luncheon. Where celebrity guests included: Jules Lund, Giaan Rooney and Kasia Z.

As Australis is the official beauty sponsor of the Caulfield Cup racing carnival this year, Australis International make up expert, Andrew Christie styled a beautiful fashion parade in “High Glamour” Australis cosmetics, complete with dark eyes and huge false lashes. Guests were also invited to enjoy the ‘Australis Beauty Bar’ for a makeup refresh as the day wore on.

Guests were ferried back to the airport in stretch Mercedes after a lovely day of fun and fashion, and a celebration not to be forgotten.
