Fashionation Cooma Socials

On Saturday 30 April, three Leiden contributors descended on Cooma to cover Fashionation. Presented by The Community Chest and sponsored by Australian Wool Innovation, the event set out to showcase the work of local designers as well as highlight the region’s wool industry.

The event took place in a large wool shed which created the perfect atmosphere for a night of celebrating wool. Almost 400 guests enjoyed the runway show, drinks and canapés, the Challenge item auction, designer pop-up shops and a post show bar.

As well as cover the event (stay tuned for our runway report and designer profiles), photographer Lauren McKay took the opportunity to snap some of the lovely guests on the evening.
