After the success of the first competition for the new Coming into Fashion exhibition, we're back with another chance for you to win one of 10 Double Passes to this amazing exhibition at The Arts Centre.

In addition to these images, a selection of vintage couture from The Darnell Collection - Australia’s largest private collection of fashion from the late 1700s to the 20th century – will be on display.

 

 

A curation of seminal fashion films and documentaries will be screening throughout the exhibition season, and over two days of talks and forums, guests will hear international and Australian industry leaders discuss the past, present, and future of the world of fashion.

For your chance to WIN one of 10 prize packs including a one Double Pass to the Coming into Fashion exhibition and one Double Pass to the Fashion on Film session please better below.

What inspired you to start A Darling Affair?

We have always had a love for design, craft and styled events and had tried our hand at a few little joint projects, and were always watching and waiting for that one thing that we would really enjoy and we could dedicate ourselves to. At the beginning of 2012 our interest was sparked as we were inspired by the new breed of wedding fairs popping up interstate, and really felt that we had finally found our niche.

Who is behind A Darling Affair? 

We are a best-friend duo, brought together through our husbands. Carrie is the blonde, originally from Sydney; and Emily is the brunette, a local to the Sunshine Coast. We are a laid back no fuss pair, except when it comes to our events – where we are all about the added details that make an event memorable. We love all things design and style – are often trawling blogs online, and when we’re not in front of the computer you’ll find us scouting around for new sources of local inspiration and great places to hang out with our close friends. Often we are asked what else we do for work apart from our fairs – the simple answer is nothing at this stage, we are busy enough with our darling events and tending to our darling little families.

What can visitors to A Darling Affair expect at the event?

A highly creative and visual experience – not a rigid, corporate expo. We have a great line up of the finest, fresh wedding suppliers the Gold Coast has to offer. A whole day experience, filled with fashion parades, demonstrations, giveaways, food and fun.

Why is A Darling Affair different to other wedding expos/events?

We are the first of this calibre of fair to be dedicated to the Gold Coast region, it is an event of high quality, creativity and style. It will be a stunning event with so many gorgeous sources of inspiration. We encourage an intimate, laid back environment where our guests can meet and really get to know the people they will be trusting one of their most important moments with.

Who should attend A Darling Affair? Should Bride-to-Be’s bring their fiancés?

By purchasing tickets online, you can bring your bestie, groom-to-be or event your mother-in-law for free. So grab a ticket early to get a “plus-one” for free.

What sort of Bride will most enjoy the event?

The Bride that is looking to create a wedding that is as unique as the love that she and her groom share. Sassy Brides who are not afraid to step outside the box. Our focus is high design, high artistic quality, high creativity, high style – with out the high-end price tag. We love the DIY brides, the vintage brides, the boho brides, the hipster brides, the boutique brides – any bride that after something that bit different for her day.

Wild Heart Jewellery is the brain child of mother daughter duo, Samara and Julie Baunach - a talented pair with wandering gypsy souls and a mutual love of making beautiful jewellery.

Drawing their inspiration from Julie’s Bohemian wild child up bringing and Samara’s love for the native American culture, their designs are strongly influenced by their love of tribal and ethnic culture, freedom, peace, love, music, totem, talismans and mother nature.

You can find Wild Heart Jewellery at each TVM, on the first and third Sunday of each month.

Be sure to check out their gorgeous new website for the latest Lookbook, blog and of course to shop their amazing pieces online.

TVM: Tell us about how and when your label was created?
WHJ: We established Wild Heart in 2011. It all came about by us playing around and remaking old jewellery we had lying around. From there we started to source beads and we eventually started creating our first range, which was a bit of a mixture.

What pieces are included within your range?
Rings, bracelets, necklaces, cuffs, head pieces, anklets, earrings, ear cuffs and we have a home-wares range which includes dream catchers, wall hangings, lamps and agate coasters.

Where is the label designed and made?
We design and create all pieces in our home studio located here on the Gold Coast.

What inspires you?
Life! Native indian culture, tribes, travel, adventure.

Latest collection consists of?
Lots of crystals, leather, natural stones, sterling silver, feathers.

wild heart 8

wild heart 1

What's on your mood board?
Its quite a colorful mixture of images we have found along the way, it changes all the time but at the moment there is a little tipi love, Indian chiefs strewn in jewels, amazing shots from various fashion shoots/designers and some inspirational words thrown in there too!

What’s your creative space like?
We have just constructed a new studio which is full of beautiful jewels, trinkets and treasures we collect on our little adventures or at the markets. The walls are plastered with inspiration pictures and our favorite pieces of art. There’s a little bit of both of us. Its organized chaos and we love it!

wild heart 4

What do you listen to while getting crafty?
It’s very chilled with a few sing-alongs. At the moment we have a little bit of the xx, The Cure, Alt-J, Bob Dylan, just to name a few.

A day in the life of you consists of?
Samara is still working full-time and Julie part-time at this stage so its all after hours designing for us!

Favorite TVM stall (besides yours of course)?
Kivari, Amilita, Dust , tenspeed and brownshoes, Children of the Tribe!

What can we expect from the next collection and what are your plans for 2013?
The recent launch of our website! We are hoping to continue working with some of the amazing designers who we have met of the last two years and there will be plenty of feathered, turquoise goodness to come!

TVM Hearts: Commune

TVM has a cool new neighbour and we wanted to share the love.

Nestled in on the Lower Gold Coast Highway Burleigh Heads, just north of TVM, is Commune a delightful cafe run by locals Nerissa and Mitch. Next time you're at TVM, wonder up to Commune - the coffee is delicious and the 'walnut loaf' is a personal favourite.

TVM: How did you discover the venue for Commune, was it really after a Sunday visit to TVM?
C: We were driving back from Byron and popped in to TVM on our way home to Mermaid Beach - after picking up a few creative delights from the talented GC locals, we drove by the "old butcher" with the For Lease sign out the front and instantly knew that it had the potential to become something amazing - we just weren't quite sure what?!

TVM: Tell us about what visitors can expect to find at Commune - a mix of coffee, food, vintage and eco friendly wares? How did you come up with this mix?
C: My husband Mitch and I both have hospitality backgrounds and I have been lucky enough to work for some very talented cafe owners over the past few years. So with loads of experience and a love for the cafe industry, we have combined it with our love for the enviroment and our other business called All Eco (www.alleco.com.au) which we have run prodominantly online for the last 4 years. Our All Eco business started as mainly selling organic fabrics and textiles online, but has now grown to inlcude homewares, jewellery, bedding and lots more.

TVM: You have your own fashion label also?
C: I studied fashion at Uni and have been making clothes and selling them at different markets and at a few little boutiques on and off for the last 10 years. I also had a joint label with my sister called "Repossessed" which we made all the clothes from mens shirts that we souced from OP shops. We sold them at a few different markets including TVM.

TVM: Any special events on the calendar for the café?
C: There are definatley ideas that we are looking in to - and also a few charity event evenings coming up - so we will be sure to let everyone know when they are confirmed. We are promoting Meat Free Mondays at the cafe - so every Monday our food cabinet is stocked with yummy vego options. We will still have a few smoked salmon and tuna options available.

Opening hours are 6.30am - 3.30pm - 7 days.
