Back in April, Kelly Coe, Co-Owner of Augustine, and our Co-Owner Catherine Cooke were talking about how cool it would be for Kelly to have an Augustine event at Allely Estate in Kumeu. Kelly visited the Estate and instantly developed a vision of having a twinkling fairy light Winter Wonderland Fashion Show evening at Allely Estate. Kelly loved the park-like luscious private surroundings of Allely Estate with sparkling threads of fairy lights hanging from our mighty trees.
For the night Kelly added her own touch of stand-up balloons throughout the estate, along with a 360-photo booth for some extra photo fun.
Testimonial from Kelly Coe, Owner of Augustine
Allely Estate was the most gorgeous venue for our Augustine event, ‘Winter Wonderland’. The ambiance was perfect with all the fairy lights and lit-up marquee. The staff could not have been more helpful and nothing was an issue. The food was perfect and plentiful. I would recommend this venue for anyone’s event or social occasion. xx
In the Marquee (and off the back of a busy week for Allely Estate staff as the Estate was used for a week of filming a short action wedding movie for TVNZ), our team created an amazing winter utopia. Augustine Launched their Winter fashion lines here at Allely Estate to a room packed full of the most glamourous, stylish, and fun-coloured outfits all worn by their adoring Fashion fans & clients. The Estate was full of sparkle and glitz for the many Augustine clients, who came from out of Auckland with many starting the evening earlier with a pre-event function at Augustine’s Newmarket store and staff. Even the bus company that let Augustine down did not put a dampener on the night as Kelly and her team in the spirit of solving problems, got the many from Newmarket to Allely Estate in Ubers.
The fashion catwalk adorned the centre of the marquee and was surrounded by 270 chairs of Augustine clients watching in awe the models strutting their wears & inspirational women, like Toni Street doing Q & A’s with the ever so engaging Kerry Woodhams.
We were so excited to see the vibrancy of colours emerge for an evening of bubbles, moreish nibbles, walk & fork cuisine & it was evident that this event was much needed for many girlfriends, family, and work colleagues off the back of a few years of lock down!
The evening most certainly showcased the sprinkle of magic that Kelly Coe provides wherever she goes within the Fashion Universe and Allely Estate delivered on point Kelly’s vision of a Winter Wonderland Fashion Evening.
