  • Sacred Heart Parish for the beautiful crockery
  • Ian Aldrich for taking photographs to record our inaugural event
  • Tristan Day for providing the live music and Sean Moffat for all things technical
  • Our student models Emerald Cooney, Emma Aldrich, Kate Aldrich,  Sophie Dahl, Eva Mecraft, Danielle Bordignon, Lilly Reeves, Matilda Maroney and friends of the school – Joanne Irwin and Melanie Duffy
  • Rockmans, Autograph and Spice Clothing for their fashions
  • Leanne Bensley for displaying her selection of millinery
  • the many students (from Xavier and the primary schools) who assisted in setting up the tables which looked fabulous
  • A big thank you to Georgia Kemp who stood in as compere at very short notice.  Georgia also provided vintage clothing from her own collection to be modelled.  The dresses of a bygone era certainly brought back memories for many.
