Cruise control

Glorious day in Sydney and what a way to spend it - or at least an hour or so - down at the Overseas Passenger Terminal on Sydney Harbour. FYI international readers, this is where luxury cruise liners berth while in town. And while once a daggy, quasi-industrial zone, the area has been revamped with a series of chic restaurants and bars. It also happens to be the venue of Rosemount Australian Fashion Week, which kicks off in three weeks time, so it felt like we had all arrived a tad early. We were there to toast Leona Edmiston's Spring/Summer 2010/2011 season launch.

Three models, nine looks... Edmiston might not be joining in RAFW's 15th anniversary festivities, but she did do a fantastic job of launching the season at Quay restaurant with a charming capsule collection of fifties sundresses featuring retro prints and glamorous draped jersey eveningwear.

All accessories by Edmiston, with some spectacular millinery by Nerida Winter, makeup by MAC's Nicole Thompson and hair by Michael Brennan.

The three models were Chic Management's Hermione Cahill (top) and Chadwicks' Sarah Lorimer (third photo, L) and Bronx Whitehorn (pic 11 - with the blue and white turban).

I covered it live on Twitter, but here is a selection of other shots I snapped in and around the venue, before having to dash back to work.

Bring on RAFW.

I've always thought Leona Edmiston was fabulously talented. She also seems really sweet. Peter Morrissey not so much. I just couldn't understand their relationship.
The collection is a little reminiscent of early Flamingo Park. That's a good thing.

Patty! I can't even begin to tell you how much this makes me yearn for warmer weather and coral lips and talons. God Leona is good. Gorgeous images x
