Amanda Strang and Marie Zhuge Ziqi lent their blushing bride-to-be glow to the AT by Atsuro Tayama spring-summer show at Psychic Jacks.

The two 'It' girls sauntered down the runway in breezy, feminine cotton separates and platform espadrilles, while VIP guests and fellow models Gaile Lai and Mandy Lieu looked on with the crowd, sipping cocktails and nibbling candy floss.

After the show on Tuesday, December bride Zhuge smiled gamely for the cameras while Strang (pictured) spoke excitedly about preparations for her September wedding in Rome.

'I've been flying to New York a lot lately to sit in on bridal runway shows,' the 31-year-old said. 'I've been trying on many gowns and I think I've narrowed it down to a few designers. It's been a little exhausting, but I'm not compromising at all on time and money with this dress - after all, it's a once-in-a-lifetime outfit.'

Strang said she had less legwork to do for accessories, as Italian luxury goods retailer Bulgari offered to sponsor her jewellery for the big day.

'The next time I'm in Rome, I'll be heading to the Via Condotti boutique to try things on, as that's where they keep their rarer, vintage pieces.'
