Finding an outfit for a formal occasion is often a big hassle, but thankfully there are an increasing amount of buy and hire boutiques popping up around Adelaide. Two of our recent go-to places for high end fashion gowns are Glamourhouse Australia and Azalia Boutique.
We first came across Glamourhouse Australia in April at the Labels Style Market held at Plant 4 Bowden. The incredible range of sleek and colourful formal attire instantly caught our attention during the runway showcase of the event.
Having only initiated 18 months ago, the local Adelaide business has had a great amount of success and response from Adelaidians with over 6,000 Facebook and Instagram followers combined.
Founder of Glamourhouse, Marie Jones, also mentioned she is super excited to where the business will head to next.
Located at Northview, we selected a few of our favourite outfits for the ‘Glamour on the Streets’ photo diary. All of the outfits followed the consistence formal theme but had their own individual look and personality.
The first outfit selected was the black and white Self-Portrait Jumpsuit, a well structured outfit with high-wasted pants and incredibly detailed sleeve work. We found it super comfortable to wear and loved the adored the business collar style.
The second look was a gorgeous Asilio the Label Prisoner Queen Maxi Dress in nude – or the ultimate ‘look at me’ outfit that certainly turns heads. One thing we love about this gown is the incredible material it’s made from and the short to long style from front to back. Since the dress is already highly extravagant, we paired it with simple nude shoes and a plain white clutch from Colette Hayman Fashion.
The third outfit was also an Asilio gown with similar form. Though pink isn’t usually my colour of preference, the Candy Queen Dress made me feel like an absolute princess (or a cupcake, but equally as wonderful). Though both Asilio dresses feel quite heavy on a coat hanger, they’re very light when worn.
The final outfit was chosen from Azalia Boutique on Kensington Road. Unlike Glamourhouse that is purely a hire boutique, Azalia is a shop-and-buy store that is spread across three locations.
Unintentionally, there was an Asilio trend that took place as the final outfit we chose was the Asilio Heart Don’t Stand a Chance Dress. The outfit was a sheek, slim and off the shoulder look. The stretchy material was also very comfortable to wear and we could certainly picture ourselves wearing this for a formal occasion or event.
It’s fantastic to see so many Adelaide fashion businesses succeed and we encourage others to shop local and perhaps also attend the next Labels Style Market on the 9th of June.
A very special thank you also to Noora from NKM Images for her excellent photography work.
