Semele Walk was an incredibly successful fusion of fashion and opera. Directed by Ludger Engels, George Frideric Handel’s dramatic Semele and the exclusive designs of Vivienne Westwood resulted in the eccentrically fabulous Semele Walk. Set within the opulent surrounds of Sydney Town Hall, this Festival highlight featured models in Westwood couture strutting between the performers as they rampaged the entire length of the catwalk.
Enhancing the elaborate fashion designs and drama on the catwalk, TONI&GUY Hair Care created the spectacular hair looks for the opera stars and models. In Semele Walk, the models reflect the styling of the late Marie Antoinette with mini crinolines and dramatic hair and makeup imitations.
