Excuse me while I have an uncontrolled gush of fashion-ness.
Hey! Look! I’m on the front row, wearing Aurelio Costarella, and I LOOK PINK!! I am a happy fashion girl!
Last week I attended a number of Perth Fashion Festival events and had a fab time looking at cool clothes, taking photos, going to parties and catching up with the Perth fashion pack. Yes, it was all very glamorous and exciting and fun – and tiring.
Me sitting front row with Teagan Sewell (left) who recently won a WA Fashion Award for her work as a stylist, and Pip Christmass, Fashion Editor for The West Australian (centre).
This is me partying with Scott from Out in Perth, Lisa Chau designer of Generics Accessories and co-founder of Merge Clothing, Emma Bergmeier, fashion editor of Xpress Magazine and fabulous fashion blogger from Dropstich. Here, we are all sunset golden in colour.
Fashion designer Poppy Lissiman (who has an incredible collection of dresses this season!), me and Lisa. Purple this time.
Short Me with TALL designer Garth Cook and normal height designer Alison Cotton of Joveeba.
This photo by Songy Knox from Style Discovery, who I also got to catch up with!
Me with designer Kym Ellery of Ellery. Purple again, and a little blurry.
There were so, so many other people – designers, media people, boutique owners, photographers, and general cool, fun people that I caught up with and partied with over the week – but I just didn’t get photos!
Like fashion designer Timothy Godbold, Alvin Fernandez from Aelkemi, Kirsten Shadbolt from Paper Skye, jewellery designer Alister Yiap, fashion designer Leanne Lim, fashion photographer Romain Duquesne, fashion designer Sheree Dornan, Zoë Trotman of Lonely 8 Bit Heroes, fashion designer Daniella Caputi, Claire Davies fashion editor for Sunday Times, , Mariella Harvey-Hanrahan director of the Perth Fashion Festival, blogger Marcia Ball, stylist Hannah McGrath, Connor and Romina from Zekka, Mark and Marie from Head Studio, and fashion boutique owner Zara Bryson.
But of course, it is all about the CLOTHES, right? So aside from all the socialising, I saw some great fashion from Perth designers – and I’m so, so excited and proud of their work. I hope to be doing some reviews over the next few months to show off their clothes.
The pics above were taken by Stefan Gosatti, during the last fashion show for the festival.

It was a great week!!
(And I am still soooo tired!)
