Fashion Event - L'Heure du Thé (a French High Tea)

Over the weekend, L'Heure du Thé (a French High Tea) was held to raise awareness and funds for the amazing work of the National Breast Cancer Foundation
Surrounded by talented, inspiring and glamorous ladies!
From L to R: Leeyong from Style Wilderness, Kyra from Pybus PR,
Iolanthe from Ruby Slipper Consultants and Jessica who made her own hat!
Organised by Pybus PR and Le Style, the decadent High Tea, hosted at the beautiful Langham Hotel in Melbourne, treated guests to beautiful desserts, a live harpist and tea provided by Madame Flavour. Domain Flowers kindly donated all the beautiful floral pieces on each table and installation in the Petit Emporium.

The Petit Emporium housed a variety of pop-up stalls showcasing French-themed treasures. Amongst the stalls was beautiful jewellery from the talented Wendy from Ghost & Lola and perfume from Peony Melbourne Haute Parfumerie.

Melbourne fashion institution Madam Virtue & Co presented a beautiful installation showing a select range of stunning couture gowns from their own in-house label and private collection.

Miles Mason Training Company donated a beautiful Marianne Guedin candle luxuriously scented by wild flowers, sage and sheets of tobacco for the best-dressed guest.

Thanks to Pybus Pr, Le Style and the Langham for hosting such a wonderful afternoon!

Here are some of the beautiful pictures from the event and the stylishly dressed guests:
