Perth Fashion Festival 2009 Launch

The Perth Fashion Festival launched its program for 2009, detailing a 7 day calendar jam packed with fashion shows and events, from September 4 – 10 2009.

I braved a frosty Wednesday morning to attend the launch at the historic Perth GPO building. Guests entered along a red carpet and past a window display of live models adorned with a variety of West Australian designer clothes, all in a white ethereal theme.

And Tom Bull, another international model from Perth, was presented as the Youth Ambassador for the Festival. I just adored his outfit by Aelkemi, and the whole babyface-with-facial-hair look. So cute.

As I scoffed down some breakfast pastries and flicked through the program, I was most excited about the individual designer shows by Ruth Tarvydas, Wheels & Dollbaby and Morrison. Yay, can’t wait!
