I absolutely love going to fashion shows! Especially shows by graduating student fashion designers – because there’s always an amazing energy in the air.
One annual show I love seeing is that of the graduating students from the Fashion and Jewellery courses at Curtin University in Perth. It’s always incredible! Already, some of these “bright young things” have won major prizes and industry recognition.
Each year they hold their one night stand in a different venue, with a different theme. It’s a great big, noisy, indulgent, lush, colourful party. While most fashion shows are a bit stuffy, the grad ones are so much more relaxed and fun – and fresher.
So this year, the Curtin Grad show is called ‘In Transit’, and held at the Fremantle Passenger Terminal, Victoria Quay, Fremantle Harbour, on Saturday 24th November 2007 – door open at 7.30pm, show starts at 8.30pm.
Tickets are $25 (which is a great price for this kind of event), it includes complimentary drinks and nibbles. You can try buying limited tickets available from the door on the night, or you can get tickets from the La La Orange Boutique at 411 William St, Northbridge, ph 9328 8630, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org (I don’t think you can buy the tickets off the website though.)
Maybe I’ll see you there! If you do see me….say Hi!
