Toowoomba and Darling Downs residents will be treated to an afternoon of high fashion when former Toowoomba woman and couturier to the stars, Jacqueline Buck arrives this weekend.
Iconic family business, Wagners, is sponsoring the event for the Endeavour Foundation South West Committee in conjunction with the Downs Club, Cracker Print and Paper, Toni Ross Hair, Kate-e-h and Zazi Mineral Cosmetics.
The former “Glennie Girl ‘ said she was excited to travel back to her hometown to present her latest collection which will feature items shown at the 2011 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival. “I am really looking forward to coming home to present some of my designs and I hope to bring something new to Toowoomba,” Ms Buck said. “I have always supported the Endeavour Foundation so I jumped at the opportunity to get involved and help raise much needed money for them.”
With her genuine, down to earth nature Ms Buck identifies with the needs of each client, working meticulously to create their dream dress. Whether it’s a unique outfit for the races, a cocktail party, black tie event or for the most special day of all, your wedding day, Ms Buck will delight you with her creativity and impeccable standard of craftsmanship.
Sourcing beautiful fabrics and materials from around the world, Jacqueline uses only natural fibres, which ensures each and every piece she has designed reaches its full potential.
Last year Jacqueline announced the release of a new second label in addition to her established line of Couture, a ready to wear collection under the label ‘Jacqueline Buck’ which was launched at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival held at Brisbane’s Southbank in August 2010.
Tickets for the event are $80 which includes champagne, raffle tickets, canapes and entertainment. The event will be held on Saturday, 19th November from 4 to 7pm at the Downs Club, Mylne Street, Toowoomba.
