This year Perth Fashion Festival celebrates its Crystal Anniversary with a colossal program of events. Brimming with endless runway shows, upon VIP privy parties, and lashings of models, designers and the Perth fashion industries front row royalty.
It’ll be The Fashion Catalyst‘s fifth year covering all of the trend-talising runways. Reporting on what cream has risen to the top of the local industry from the front row. Whilst also capturing the backstage hair and beauty trends, and street style from the real life runway outside each event. And personally, we couldn’t be more thrilled to be an Official Perth Fashion Festival Blogger this year…
So, what are we most looking forward to? The entire week, naturally! But with that said, we’ve narrowed down a few of our favourite Festival Program picks for you below.
Presenting six West Australian designer/label icons: Empire Rose, Flannel, Morrison, One Fell Swoop, Ruth Tarvydas and Zhivago. Each will individualise their interpretation of the Festival’s Crystal Anniversary with their never seen before creations.
Opening the six day fashion extravaganza, this one is going to be the night of all nights where the industry will mingle and celebrate fifteen years of the Festival in the making.
The annual search for a local fresh faced beauty is back again at Karrinyup Shopping Centre over two exciting days. With industry experts on the judges panel, West Australian girls and guys over the age of 15 will strut their stuff in the hope of making it through to the Semi Final and Final heats. Which will take place on Saturday 14th September and Sunday 15th September at Fashion Central in Forrest Place.
Chic Management is renowned globally for discovering and launching the careers of some of the world’s leading models such as Catherine McNeil, Alyssa Sutherland, Myf and many more.
We’re expecting to see some major prints and heart racing jewellery – with gift bags rumoured to be encrusted with a Alister Yiap piece too. Have you got your tickets yet?
Only the most talked about, free-to-public, event on the program to date. A cool collaboration between Carillon City and Perth Fashion Festival which will see two of the world’s hottest female DJs: The Faders, perform live from Fashion Central in Forrest Place.
Not sure who The Faders are? Then you better get down to the tent at 5pm on Friday 13th September to find out! These girls are too hot to miss, and this will be the best start to your weekend by far!
Students from across Perth will send their Ready to Wear Women’s, Ready to Wear Men’s, Eco Design, Contemporary Evening Wear and Costume Design creations down the runway for industry experts to judge and select a winning designer from each category.
Possibly our single favourite runway for its display of incredibly carefree and envelope pushing creations #mustsee!
Did someone just say Cameron Silver? THE Cameron Silver from our favourite reality TV series, Decades will be stopping by Hatch on Sunday 15th September. And we certainly won’t be missing this for anything!
Cameron, who runs Hollywood’s most glamorous vintage couture boutique, will fly into Perth for a special signing of his new book ‘Decades: A Century of Fashion‘. I’ve heard it will be straight off the back of New York Fashion Week too. Now tell me why anyone would want to miss this?!
Myer Fashion Luncheon
Selling out fast, this delectable two-course fashion meal is every socialites annual Festival regular. Myer will present its spring summer 2014 designer collections whilst overlooking the picturesque landscape of Perth from Kings Park.
Set to showcase her Vitreous 2014 collection, Perth-born Ellery will also unveil the label’s bespoke Fine Jewellery collection. Set to feature a spectacular piece created from Newmont Mine using 18 carat gold.
A culmination of a week worth of fashion celebrations, this will be the night of nights to cap it all off. And what better way than with such a cult “it-girl” label.
