YPPC Colour Ball

The colours of the spectrum unite for Barnardos charity.

YPPC Colour Ball


September 29th, 2009

It’s a case of fashion meets industrial design and an explosion of colour for the upcoming Young Peter Pan Committee Colour Ball.

The YPPC are an sub-group of the Bardnardos Australia children’s charity, aimed at rasing funds within the young adult demographic to support Barnardos in their mission to improve child welfare.

The group thought it was about time colour took to the stage, and so selected six fashion designer and six industrial designers to create bespoke pieces in six colours: yellow, blue, green, red, pink and purples.

These colours were chosen to work with six Mooi chandeliers at the Ivy Room where the YPPC will hold a ‘Colour Ball’ fundraiser later this month. Each colour, with outfit and product side-by-side, will be placed under the matching chandelier and will be auctioned off on the night of the ball.

The fasion and industrial designers and their colours are:


Jade Michelle
| Andrew Simpson


Gary Bigeni | Trent Jansen


Konstantina Mittas | Nick Karlovasitis and Sarah Gibson


Shilo Engelbrecht | Adam Goodrum


Jean Bas | Emma Elizabeth


Karina Pires | Amy Cunningham

The Colour Ball will be held on Saturday 17 October 2009, click here to purchase tickets.’¨
