The night's stylish hosts, Philip Boon and Jenny Bannister entertained the crowd as they described the fantastic designs created especially to be auctioned off, by some of Melbourne's most talented designers including Dean Hewitt and JC Lloyd-Southwell d'Anvers from Madam Virtue, Anthony Capon, Kara Baker, Candice DeVille, Leopold and Clemente Talarico, as well as students from Whitehouse Institute of Design who helped put together this fantastic evening.
General Manager of the Prahran Mission, Erica Myers-Davis spoke about the work of the Prahran Mission, which supports the community through initiatives such as providing basic food and mental health rehabilitation and counselling to people in crisis. With all the proceeds from the night going to the valuable work of the Prahran Mission, Mission 65 was not only a great night of fun and fashion, but reminded the community to consider and support those less fortunate.
