Tonight is STYLEAID 2010! – One of WA’s biggest annual fashion events of the year (and yes, I'll be working there on the ground team)
Some great designers are involved – see the list below.

Tonight’s tribe colour is orange and an entire runway collection will be dedicated to student works in this colour. 

This sold out event has loads of great sponsors, raffles, and gift bags, guests will be treated to a great night! 

Miss Universe - National Costume

This is Jesinta Campbell’s Miss Universe National Costume!

I don’t mind the little shrug jacket thingy – as long as its faux fur of course – and I event don’t mind the foots! Surprisingly, even though Ugg boots are synonymous with a last Australian lifestyle, ankle boots are cute, and they aren’t terrible from what I can see. My problem here really lies with the skirt. It looks flamenco? I cant see how it has anything to do with Australia whatsoever. Sheepskin and Ugg boots are very outback and rural Australia. The bathers are great – of course, Australia is an island, and its all coastal and all that :P

And the Indigenous design as well, hailing to our aboriginal heritage and recognising that part of our culture is great. But the skirt? Ok, so the colours and red and black and yellow, which are colours associated with the outback and sunset and the aboriginal flag....but the material? And the design itself?

 It’s a tiered Spanish flamenco dancing skirt?! I'm so confused. She looks great though, very attractive girl, the belt is a bit too rodeo for me, and we don’t really have a rodeo culture here but hey. And I know that the National Costumes are always very camp and OTT and all the rest and are also tongue in cheek but I really don’t think this has any relevance. What about out Australian flag? The southern cross. We have a mighty bogan culture, she should have a southern cross tattoo!! Haha, ok I'm getting carried away. Regardless -  Lose the skirt, girlfriend.

Perth Fashion Festival 2010

Perth Fashion Festival has officially launched. The board members have been announced, the 2010 website has been published, the schedule has been written up and things are well and truly starting to kick off!

And don’t worry, Ill be there, each day, running around with my Powershot Pro, snapping and blogging away, trying to find free WiFi most likely, which means cheeseburgers for lunch every day.
I'm pretty sure all McDonalds have free wifi now don’t they?

Tickets are now available so head to the site to get in early and buy tickets before they sell out and you miss out! There are also lots of free events as well ,so book them in your calendar because I'm sure this will be a busy year.

Launch parties, runways and seminars, with things in the morning, bring your mum and get brunch and things in the evening, bring your best friend and get some bubbly – there is stuff to suit every fashion lover out there!

There is a great team of volunteers, a great list of designers and plenty of pre-PFF events as well so get amongst it!

Cozi for Myer by Jennifer Hawkins

Jennifer Hawkins – who must be one of the hottest women on Earth, as well as being an Aussie girl! – has just released her swimwear range. 

Personally, its nothing great, or particularly different. I think her name and her body is going to sell it more than the designs themselves. 

The photos are great though, and they’re not bad, if you are interested, they are being sold at MYER of course, which Jen is the face for. In any case, enjoy the great photography and Jennifer’s stunning self!

Chicago 1920's Photos!

Here are some photos from the Chicago 1920's event last Friday night. A big thankyou to Perth Fashion Photobooth for taking these snaps!
For those who didnt come, make sure you don't miss the next one!!

Fashion Short Course;

I will have to keep my eye out for this kind of thing. Sorry guys, for all those girls in Perth who like fashion recycling, swap meets and DIY clothing, or have considered doing a short course in it and teaching themselves a few things, surprisingly, Perth has a lot to offer in terms of short courses to do with fashion. (Any actual qualifications however, and it's a different story!) This is only one week in, but one out of four is not tiny...If you really are keen I'm sure you could call and see if there are any spare places.

Chick Chat July

Today, in a couple of hours, ladies will be gathering at the CBD restaurant at Rydges hotel for July’s Chick Chat.
“Fit for a King” will showcase the fashion icons of King Street. All you Perthians, you know the one, one of the most elite shopping precincts in Perth by far, Gucci, Ruth Tarvydas, Louis Vuitton, Zomp shoes, Tiffany & Co etc etc etc

From 12pm – 2:30pm lingerie, evening wear, accessories on show raising money for  the Ronald McDonald House charity – so all for a good cause!

This ladies networking lunch will only set you back $59 and you will get some lunch, bubbly and a gift bag on departure!
