Last Thursday night saw the first Conscious Cup event. It was a night of entertainment and race day fashion and we were blessed with gorgeous summer weather. It was held at YOUENI in a beautiful setting, all organised by the amazing Judith from Cantor Direct
Brands included our beautiful handmade hats and headpieces (Izziana Millinery), stunning handmade jewellery by Shashen Jewels, Sseko sandals and handbags, fantastic heel protectors by Starlettos and gorgeous dresses from Bachhara. The lucky door prize was provided by Alkoomie Perfume.
Both Sseko and Buchhara help women in developing countries to generate an income for themselves and improve their lifestyle. We encourage you to read their stories.
This was an excuse to shop guilt-free for Melbourne Cup while supporting a great cause. Each of the participants donated part of their sales to their designated charity.
This year’s Melbourne Cup fashion has just become a little more conscious and we look forward to the next one. If you missed out and are still looking for race day fashion ideas, you can purchase online from the Conscious Cup participants.
