Docklands Fashionistas

03 Jun 2010

Docklands Fashionistas Image

About 100 Docklanders gathered at the Designers’ House on May 27 to see mother and daughter team Kate and Emily Whitehead win the inaugural "So You Think You Can Style" competition.

The Docklands News-sponsored event was designed to bring locals together for a fun night to help to foster a community spirit.

Emceed by comedian and TV writer Jo Gil, the event featured local couples who had 20 minutes to run through the store and style each other for the chance to win the title of “Docklands Fashionistas”.

Representatives from several Docklands associations including the Docklands Chamber of Commerce, the Docklands Community Association and the Rotary Club of Docklands, competed with a Channel 7 celebrity couple, a wild-card residential couple and Kate and Emily for the chance to win a $500 Designers’ House voucher.

City Residential employee Kate and her daughter Emily were thrilled to win the event.  Emily, whose mother dressed her in a leather suit with tribunal-inspired stockings and scarf, said her clothing was not something she would normally wear out.

“I think that was the point, to dress each other in something a bit out of our comfort zones and have a bit of fun,” Emily said.

She said that while it was embarrassing at times, she had fun and believed the night was a huge success.

“Everyone looked great and had a lot of fun. I think we were very lucky to win.”

Many Docklanders took home a prize, as well of their goodie-bag, including Baden Lucas, who won best-dressed for his black sequined suit.
