Last night the Western Australian Mercedez Benx Fashion Awards were held. (Almost) wrapping up Perth Fashion Festival.

Western Australia - Here are your winners;

Most Outstanding WA Collection for 2010 - - Ae'lkemi

They are more than deserving of this win, making a breakthrough on the national market, featuring at Australian Fashion week and really making a name for themselves. Well done guys.

I absolutely ADORE this big corset belt and have been searching for like it for about a year! I kid you not.

Designer for Tomorrow – Of Cabbages and Kings

Up and coming designer. They showcased at STYLEAID 2009 and 2010, interned for Alexander McQueen, showed at the pop-up shop Popsicle, was first snatched up by Dilettante and now is showing at their second Perth Fashion festival. Very well deserved win.

Fine Details – Alistair Yiap

Again, more than deserving, his collection is BREATHTAKING! A man who has created the most wonderful looking jewellery, featured in so many articles of late and has some fantastic pieces. Have a look at Beyond Garment at Freo Maritime Museum to see his work up until November 28th.
(And yes, that is Sarah Pauley again)

Another nominee for this award was Pinchandspoon who I also think could have happily walked away with this award to no protests from the crowd. I have seen (up close and personal) their collection at a High Tea at Palais 85, (I think it was a Fashion Friday) and let me tell you, the beauty in the neck pieces and the exquisite detailing is impressive.

Best Dressed Boutique – Dilettante

Part of the requirements for this award is the need “to be actively
supporting and nurturing local WA creative talent including designers,
local artists, photographers or other creative individuals”
Fantastic, as stated before with  Of Cabbages and Kings, you can see they are doing their bit on helping the WA fashion industry. Very impressive.

The Creative Edge – Teagan Sewell

Is a stylist who took out the award that can go to anyone from writers,
photographers, stylists, hair and make-up artists. Simply google this girls name and you will see how she is assisting the WA fashion industry.

Also nominated for this was Emma Bergmeier, someone who again, is probably equally deserving of the award. Both girls very closely involved with the Perth Fashion Festival.

Runway Model of the Year - Sarah Pauley, Vivien's

Weve all seen this (ENOURMOUSLY) tall model’s big doe eyes on the catwalk, radiant smile in the PFF ads and stunning red* hair! She’s also the Of Cabbages and Kings model if youve seen their website
(Yes guys, Perth is small, its like one big family here)

*Ok so sometimes its orange-y, sometimes not. Either way, shes stunning. And did I mention TALL!! I think I come up to her bellybutton. Also, I dont think I need to post many pictures of her, shes already featured in this post!)

Photographic Model of the Year - Fabienne Vanderhaeghen, Chadwick.

This name is a hard one to say, and a hard one to remember. The face however, is not.

Hot New Talent (Model) – Dempsey Stewart, Vivien's

Congratulations to all the winners!!
