Individuals and teams descended on Westfield Belconnen on Saturday 1st March to show off their fashion knowledge and participate in the first Fashion Treasure Hunt. Teams competed against each other to collect items, take photos, solve clues, and find bonus points. There were perplexed looks, furrowed brows and some fast walking going on as teams raced against the clock (they only had an hour) to earn as many points as possible. So much fun!
The Fashion Treasure Hunt was a joint event hosted by Style Liberation and Westfield Belconnen to raise money for the Cerebral Palsy Alliance in the ACT. Thanks everyone we raised an amazing $5,500!
Here are some of the highlights from the day.
Registrations opened at 1pm and my army of fabulous volunteers settled the nerves and were on hand to answer questions.
Yes, I’m a bossy boots – giving orders and outlining the rules to the Treasure Hunters.
The Treasure Hunters
There were some very serious competitors with strategies in place – great to watch. Best team names were The Duracks Wear Prada, Off the Cuff, Trashion and Legally Glam.
There was tension as the clock counted down but luckily there were delicious cupcakes provided by Jazz Apple Cafe to keep blood sugar levels high whilst our markers got on with the important job of determining the winner. While we waited for the winner to be declared Napoleon, Hairhouse Warehouse and the Body Shop presented workshops on Autumn/Winter 14 trends and the Treasure Hunters were spoilt with lots of gifts.
Congratulations to our winners! First place went to SamBelCaHe, in second Fit Fashionistas and third the duo – Gleeson & Carney. The prizes included vouchers and gift cards from Style Liberation, Westfield, Hoyts, Hairhouse Warehouse, Rebel Sport, Outback Jacks, Yogurtland, Cold Rock, Blue Illusion and Napoleon.
