MBFF: McKinney’s Jewellers Group Show

Friday, September 1st, 2017

On Wednesday evening the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival Brisbane spoke notes of sophistication and luxury as the McKinney’s Jewellers Group Show took to the runway. The evening showcased a fabulous selection of bespoke, high end jewels, paired with favourite Queensland designers including Paul Hunt, Pia du Pradal, Irma J Smith, Jack Sullivan, Sacha Drake and more.

Sitting FROW, I admired the precious gemstones, diamonds, pearls and sparklers up close and personal, including the surprise unveil of Margot McKinney’s suite of spectacular, perfectly matched pearls and tanzanite; a rare, multi-million dollar masterpiece, fittingly named the Once in a Blue Moon. See the gorgeous piece below, along with my highlights from the runway!
