Brisbane Arcade’s The Room with Roses started Spring with the Fashion, Blooms and High Tea event.

The afternoon held a delightful fashion parade and raised awareness for a very special cause known as Second Chance. The Second Chance Programme Fundraising Group Inc. gives vital support to Australian women who have no other means of support and are forced to live on the streets and in poor living circumstances.

The fashion parade showcased the designs of Pia Du Pradal, Tengdahl, The Irma J. Smith House of Fashion, Dower, Keri Craig Emporium, Maiocchi, Bora, Darb and The Little Black Dress Shop.
