Western Australian Fashion Awards 2013

22 Feb

 

The 17th annual WA Fashion Awards took place last night at Perth's new style hub, Brookfield Place.

More than 400 guests were invited to walk the red carpet and what a high-profile red carpet it was!

Stunning West Australian fashions were shown off as guests made their way into the terrace courtyard. The Black tie event saw the courtyard a filled by a sea of Costarella, Ae'lkemi and Tarvydas gowns as well as jewels by Sewelley, Bianc and Lust Pearls to mention a few!

With a balmy Perth night and a crowd mingling in marvellous creations, it was certainly a fantastic night to celebrate the amazing creative talent we have here in Western Australia.

 

After an hour or so of pre-Award festivities and fashion admiration, we moved into the cool foyer of Brookfield Place where we found our seats and enjoyed an acoustic by Little Ebony before the all important presentations

The ceremony was presented by Channel 10 weather presenter, Magdalena Rose and Director of the University of Western Australia's Cultural Precinct, Professor Ted Snell.

Mariella Harvey- Hanrahan (Festival Director, alongside Tony Sage) and Lord Mayor Lisa Scaffidi also gave address, which created not only a sense of pride for our our creative community but also an appreciation for all the hard work that goes into Western Australian fashion, throughout all sectors.

So the presentations began!

First of all, Gabrielle Sullivan (Chadwick) was announced Runway Model of the Year and Grady Wulff (Chadwick), Hot New Model of the Year. Nicole Harrison (Chadwick) picked up the Photographic Model of the Year.

Half way through the presentations guests were treated to a display by Fliptease Aerialist, Scott Craig who hung from the ceiling of the foyer.

Models also walked among guests showing off fashions by Ae'lkemi , Flannel, Garth Cook, Kim Barton, Martini & Coz, Sewellery, Steph Audino, Tindale, Wild Horses and Zsadar.

Head to Hatch for West Australian designers

2 Jan

When the event calls for a head-turning outfit and you want to show your support for talent that is right here in WA, take my advice and head to the Carillion Arcade where you'll find Hatch.

I first headed to Hatch around the time of the Perth Fashion Festival 2012 when I had a last minute invitation to an event that called for something West Australian and fabulous!

Sure, I had put all my eggs in Hatch's basket, given that I was shopping 3 hours before the event (and I had never been to the store), but I had faith!!

Breathing a sigh of relief, I found Hatch had done WA designers due justice and the selection of garments was perfect for what I was looking for.

I was happy to find that a collaboration of WA designers finally had a presence in Perth City with the support of The Perth Fashion Festival and The Carillion.

So with an outfit still to be found on this given Friday in 2012, I took Steph Audino, Kim Barton, Zhivago and Ange Lang into the dressing room and was in utter happiness of having the choice of such amazing labels in one confined space!

I had hit the jackpot (thankfully!) and managed to return home in time to pull it all together with accessories -phew!

Hatch has done a fabulous job of bringing West Australian fashion together in one Schmick store!! Hoorah!


Just some of the local creatives that are stocked at Hatch; Ange Lang, Little Gracie, Butcher and the Crow, Catini, Steph Audino, Raspberry & Pop, Zsadar, Zhivago and Danielle Caputi among others. Hatch also stocks accessories by labels such as Sewellery and Generics.
