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!
Comprised of collection of perfectly round South Sea pearls & tanzanite, this opulent McKinney’s creation is worth an incredible $3.8 million, signifying the impressive craftsmanship of the fourth-generation jeweller, Margot McKinney. This spectacular piece, was styled with a custom Paul Hunt creation, highlighting a delicate, chiffon blouse and elegant white, satin skirt.
