It was a long and whirl-wind day for Brad Ngata, as he joined fellow official L’Oreal Professionnel Hair Director, Caterina DiBiase, for the campaign launch of VAMFF last night at Melbourne Docklands. Formerly named the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival, Virgin Australia secured the naming rights for this year’s event, but Brad and Caterina continue in their roles of Event Hair Directors, as they have done for the past 5 years. Designers featured at the campaign launch included Brad Ngata salon favourites Yeojin Bae and Thurley, and celebs in attendance included Natalie Bassingthwaighte and Kiyami Vella (from TV’s ‘The Voice’ 2013). Following are some of Brad’s snapshots from the hugely successful launch night – wonderfully styled by Kate Gaskin, and with makeup by Elisa Morgan and hair by Brad and Caterina, plus a cast of remarkable L’Oreal Professionnel backstage assistants. If this is an indicator of the creativity of the event, we can’t wait ’til 17-23 March 2014 for the week-long style-fest!
