SOME of the biggest names on the Australian media and social circuit including Kate Waterhouse, Melissa Hoyer, Sally Obermeder, Anna Heinrich, Erika Heynatz and Natasha Oakley, converged on the new One&Only Hayman Island Resort last week for a prestigious ModelCo event.
The exclusive ‘Women of Influence’ event from November 23-26 was hosted by ModelCo founder and CEO Shelley Barrett, herself one of Australia’s top business women, responsible for steering the iconic Australian ModelCo brand to cult status and global distribution.
Over the years Ms Barrett has had a long standing association with the iconic resort, hosting some of Australia’s largest and most influential beauty launches for the ModelCo brand on the island.
“One&Only Hayman Island’s gorgeous beauty and chic glamour has a perfect synergy with my ModelCo brand. The island has always been a personal favourite of mine for inspiration and relaxation,” she said.
This year, Ms Barrett said she particularly wanted to bring together a group of women who could experience not only the picturesque location but also the supreme elegance of the newly re-invented One&Only Hayman Island resort.
One&Only Hayman Island general manager Guenter H. Gebhard said he was thrilled to welcome Ms Barrett and her guests.
“We are honoured to be the host location of an event of this calibre and look forward to these women enjoying the resort,” he said.
In true ModelCo and One&Only style, attendees enjoyed a glamour-packed itinerary over their stay, including sunset cocktail parties, a luxury boat cruise and an extensive menu of traditional and up-to-the-minute health and beauty treatments at the One&Only Spa.
