Last Friday Buoy Salon and Spa along with Coco Wellington and Working Style put on an Autumn/Winter Fashion Showcase for Positively Pink, an event to raise much needed funds for Breast Cancer Foundation. Through the generous support of Buoy Salon and Spa and other event sponsors, the  evening was able to raise over $50,000 towards continuing the amazing work that NZ Breast Cancer Foundation do.

The fashion show was a huge success and would not have been made possible with out the team effort of the Buoy Staff, with hair direction by our MASTER STYLIST Mathias and our amazing team of stylist Eilish, Andrew, Te, Skye, and Ronica. The hair for the show was all about luxury  high shine gloss, beautiful waves with bespoke pearl accent hair jewellery (created by Buoy) for both boys and girls.

Show producer and Wellington's leading fashion stylist Sopheak Seng was instrumental in putting the show together from music, show production, model co-ordination and everything in between, his countless hours which he donated and expertise in fashion shows was truly valued in ensuring a smooth and professional show.  

Our Managing Director Phillippa Middleton expertise and years of experience was invaluable in helping pull this showcase together. Her vision of bringing together well known Wellington brands to showcase their work was what made the showcase happen. Her hard work with key Buoy suppliers and partners was instrumental in garnering some very generous prizes and services for the silent auction, live auction and raffles.
