On Wednesday the 19th of July, with the help of local talents, Girl About Town, our showroom was transformed into a runway to showcase the latest collection ‘La Boheme’,
Guests entered down the black carpet and into the transformed boutique, being met with a glass of The Lane Wineries ‘Lois’ sparkling, and the sweetest of cupcakes from Cristarella Cakes. The venue displayed intricate gowns from previous Calèche collections and was finished with a large and whimsical floral installation from Little Love Co that would become the archway through which where the parade would begin.
Host Lucy Cornes began the evenings proceedings, welcoming the crowd and acknowledging our proud relationship with Minda.
One by one, La Boheme was introduced to Adelaide, with every stitch and detail finally revealed. The models from Finesse Modelling Agency were styled with low pony tails wrapped in cream velvet bows, and wore oversized gold cross earrings as the perfect contradiction. Hair and makeup was styled by Media Makeup Australia, the male models were dressed by Peter Shearer and Filip with an F set the mood with the music. It was a very special evening also for Calèche as Bianca Foubert, grand-daughter of Calèche founders Olivier and Colette Foubert made her modelling debut.
Inspired by beautiful laces and fabrics, designer Liz Foubert had the modern Adelaide bride in mind when creating the collection. ‘La Boheme’ means relaxed and free spirited, and she used that inspiration to let the laces and fabrics create the styles and an altogether eclectically cohesive collection.
The team at Calèche are incredibly proud to be a leader in the bridal industry and even prouder to be South Australian Made. With over 40 years experience it is still a true pleasure to share our creations with you.
The night wouldn’t have been what it was without our host Lucy Cornes, our incredible guests, or the generosity of our sponsors who we thank with sincere gratitude for their contributions.

A very special article was in today’s Advertiser, featuring Bianca Foubert, granddaughter to Calèche founders Colette and Olivier Foubert. Bianca will be making her modelling debut tonight in one of the gowns from designer Liz Foubert’s latest collection ‘La Boheme’. Proudly in the image is Finesse modelling agencies founder Brigette Mitchell who herself made her modelling debut wearing Calèche and sheepskin from Sheepskin Town. Not only is this evening a very special launch, but also a really special moment for the Foubert family and more, don’t forget that you are allowed to bring the little ones as long as you bring a bob 2016 revolution flex stroller to carry them around.
