Monday 14th March 2011

We are so excited to have Megan Park on the Guest Blog this week! Megan has also kindly offered 2 tickets to her LMFF Runway show this Thursday night at Central Pier in the Docklands, PLUS 2 x $200 gift vouchers to be spent at the Megan Park store on the gorgeous Ready to Wear Collection!  PLEASE NOTE: You must be in Melbourne and able to pick up the tickets either Wednesday or Thursday from the Megan Park store in Armadale during business hours! To go into the draw, just leave a comment either today or tomorrow guest blog posts by Megan! – Jenny x

Highlights from Megan Park’s stunning new winter range!

Oooohhh….. it is exciting if not a wee bit intimidating to be invited to become a guest blogger for The Design Files. Thank you Lucy and Jenny for inviting me to jump on board…. I will try my best!

It is an exciting start to the week at Megan Park as we see the fruits of our labours come down the runway at L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival as we are part of the INSTYLE show this Thursday. It is always exciting for the girls at MP to see the collection styled up and looking gorgeous. Having worked on the collection from its inception to now seeing it upon the runway is always so satisfying for us all.

We have also completely lucked out as the amazing stylist Jolyon Mason has been chosen by INSTYLE to bring together our show. Jolyon is always our stylist of choice and has lent his creative genius for quite a few seasons at MEGAN PARK.

    Dreamy Collection. The floral prints are feminine and adorable. I would love to see it on the catwalk.

  • Gina Ropiha 4 years ago

    Wow, congratulations on the beautiful images/garments -opulent, bohemian and perfect for the encroaching Melbourne winter. I particularly love the print on print and texture heavy ensembles and (not for the first time) really wish I had a ‘pantsuit figure’!! Best wishes for your event this week.

    I have the most beautiful black Megan Park dress with white shell embroidery which I was so so so excited about buying. There is only ONE small problem it is ummm errrr ‘slightly’ too small….so it waits patiently in its garment bag for me – all dressed up with no where to go.
    Would love to see the show and be inspired to fit into more beautiful clothes.
