In my post on WA Designer Collections No.2 I stated my stand outs from the runway show however, this collection was much harder to pick any stand outs as I love them all – I really have acquired an appreciation for all points of the Perth fashion spectrum – when you have designers who have been in the business as long as some of these designers (35 years) you come to appreciate their work as art.
Western Australia is renowned for many things: our long days of sunshine, our spectacular wildflower displays in spring, our love of sports, our famous actors such as Heath Ledger, Melissa George, Rove McManus and Sam Worthington, our famous supermodels such as Gemma Ward, Jessica Gomes and Nicole Trunfio, and our breathtaking fashion labels, who, incredibly, seem to blow me away every time they release a new collection – Congratulations to all those involved in this two part fashion extravaganza!
