La Belle Epoque: Property Council Awards ACT

1 August 2014

It was an era in Paris when ooh la la became glamorous, the Moulin Rouge and the Folies Begere began and Tout-Paris was the signature for the whims of the elite. If everyone was doing it then it was a fad to follow.

For the Property Council of Australia, ACT Awards Night, the Executive Director Catherine Carter slipped into her best black sequins, a whimsical feathery fascinator and hosted so elegantly her big night with its version of La Belle Epoque, as Tout-Canberra involved in the many and varied aspects of our city’s developers, property professionals, allied businesses and government celebrated; showing the kind of optimism that La Belle Epoque espoused
 

Some dressed up, Rachel Evagelou of Handmade the best dressed, but most stayed safe. The night was fun with elegant gold ladderback chairs, sparkling chandeliers and a golden festoon curtain for the stage backdrop making the Great Hall at Parliament House quite intimate, exotic and just a little ostentatious.The dessert plate a French fantasy of gateau, tarte aux fruits, macarons and tiny chocolate madeleines, a lovely Proustian moment to remember.
 

The awards were short and smooth as the Carter team got them out of the way so efficiently and the partying, networking and schmoozing began. The Crace development by CIC the major award winner, rebirthing the ‘burb brilliantly. Now to top this fabulous night next year. Catherine can and will I’m sure.
