Remember the 90s when the world’s most glamorous runway girls were labelled with the `supermodel’ tag and wouldn’t get out of bed for less than $10,000?
It seemed like crazy money back then, but in fact five-figure sums for campaign contracts today are quite the norm.
However, while the money was major, it was the supermodel status that etched these catwalk creatures into high-fashion history and sharing in that narrative is our Premiere boutique trade show exhibitor and Little Joe Woman designer, Gail Elliott.
She stalked the runways with all the big model greats from best friend Cindy Crawford to Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington and fellow brit babe, Yasmin Le Bon who recently flew down under to strut her stuff in support of Elliott’s second Rosemount Australian Fashion Week show in Sydney.
And what an emotional reunion it was, with both girls ending the show holding hands as though they were 19 again reliving the fun model memories of their youth.
If you missed it, then head over to Gail’s Blog for all the backstage shots and heartfelt posts from Gail herself like this one about her special friendship with Le Bon and Crawford:
“Yasmin has been one of my closest friends for 25 years and has always been so supportive of me and our brand.
She and Cindy (Crawford) were shot on location in a photo of the three of us wearing my first ever samples and it was that photo that launched the line.
As such stylish woman who are able to choose to wear labels from any of the world’s major designers she still models for us, it’s amazing that she can take the time to come to Sydney for LJW and RAFW.”
Awwww… and if that isn’t enough, Gail even had Le Bon, Crawford and Helena Christensen as her bridesmaids!

The Premiere boutique tradeshow comes to Melbourne’s Royal Exhibition Building from August 28-30 showcasing a carefully selected collection of local and international labels offering exclusive higher end fashion.
