Flamingo Sands launched its Summer 09/10 collection at the newly renovated Deck 10 at the Adelphi Hotel in Melbourne recently. The Flinders Lane alley was bathed in pink lights and a towering 8 story high projection of the Flamingo Sands latest look greeted guests as they arrived.

In attendance were Nadia Zachwieja, Grant Smilie, Zoe Badwi, Angus Kennett, Lance (Buddy) Franklin, Kasia Z, Sullivan Stapleton, Brodie Young, many fashion media and PR reps, and about 400 of Melbourne's most fashionable guests.

Guests were served Absolut Vodka cocktails, Rosemount wines and James Boags beers while models paraded around in the ‘I HEART FS’ summer collection serving candyfloss. Delightful show bags contained goodies from Diva, Sugadeaux Cupcakes, Moxie, Bloom Cosmetics and Paul Mitchell.

The Flamingo Sands Summer 09/10 collection captures the spirit of the quintessential fun-loving girl with sharp styling and subtle detailing, fusing the delicately beautiful kaleidoscope of colour and pattern with the contemporary lines of figure sculpting cuts. The ‘I HEART FS’ story evolves to depict a society girl embarking upon the summer sun in her individual urban space. The Flamingo Sands ‘I HEART FS’ summer 09/10 is bold and quirky with an undeniably raw sex appeal.

Here are some pictures from the launch.
