On Friday May 5 Manly Harbour Village Chamber of Commerce hosted the Mother’s Day Fashion and Style Morning Tea at Wynnum Manly Yacht Club. We had a sell-out event with 80 members and guests in attendance enjoying the fashion, fun and beautiful views.

Our MC Carlee Hay and stylist Ann Whitaker kept us entertained with fashion styling tips that were simple and effective, whilst fun and easy. The fashions were provided by Manly Harbour Village’s Labels By The Bay and Ebb & Flow Boutique, with models by FBME, ranging in size from eight to 16.

Labels by the Bay brings together a collection of beautiful designers with a great reputation for producing good-quality clothing to suit a range of figures. Owners Pauline Southerwood and Bernadette Travers decided that style and comfort should not be mutually exclusive, and style should be available to every woman, whatever her age, size or shape.

“Nautical, coastal and island lifestyle” is how Julieann Starr describes the vibe of Ebb & Flow Boutique. It is a befitting description reflecting its Manly Harbour Village setting on the upper reaches of Cambridge Parade.

The morning was definitely a Manly Harbour Village Chamber affair with our market stalls and raffle prize donations. We would like to thank and acknowledge Flowers on Cambridge, Style +Error, BlacKandles, Oscar Oscar, Joan Pease MP, Thyme for Me, Switch to Success and Tide on the Jetty for their support.

The Wynnum Manly Yacht Club is nestled within the inner reaches of the Manly Boat Harbour. The sunny patio is the perfect spot for a quiet breakfast, light lunch, sundowners or relaxed dinner. It is home to the Wynnum Manly Sailing Club, Manly Dragon Boat Club and The Captain’s Parrot Café.
