Fifty people crowded into the gorgeous drawing room at 169 Forbury Rd to see 33 high fashion outfits - just a slice of style icon Barbara Brinsley's fantastic fashion collection at the Hospice's Champagne, Cake & Couture event last Saturday.

This extraordinary fashion event raised $5800 for the Otago Community Hospice, with every part of the event donated. 

Victoria Muir from Sequel Events created the event from scratch. She, Barbara and fashion historian Dr Jane Malthus curated the fashion line up;  the champagne was supplied by Wine Freedom, and sponsored by Deloitte Dunedin's Kyle Cameron; the coupe glasses were supplied by Oamaru Hospice Shop Manager Jenifer Callanan; and a glorious selection of cakes were donated by Heritage Cafe, The Tart Tin, Rosalind Alison and Amanda Burke. Hospice volunteer Marsa Dodson played her harp, and Lyn and Malcolm Farry supplied the backdrop of their beautiful Forbury Rd home.

During the "Champagne, Cake & Couture" show, fashion historian Dr Jane Malthus and Mrs Brinsley discussed her collection, which included many international labels, including Dior, Valentino, Jean Paul Gaultier and Maison Margiela, as well as her favourite New Zealand brands and treasures she has found at the Otago Community Hospice retail stores.

A big thank you to Barbara Brinsley, Jane Malthus, Victoria Muir, Malcolm and Lyn Farry, Deloitte Dunedin, Heritage Coffee Dunedin, THE TART TIN, Rosalind Allison, Amanda Burke and Jenifer Mary Callanan for supporting this event. And also to our wonderful models:  Charlotte Wheeler, Grace Roesler and Jessica Clarke from Aart Model Management and Bridget Wisnesky from Silverfox Management.
