25 years of rock star couture closes out Perth Fashion Festival

Perth Fashion Festival has confirmed that iconic Western Australian label Wheels & Dollbaby will close the 13thannual Festival with a stand-out show to be held at His Majesty’s Theatre on Tuesday 27 September.

Celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, the rock’n’roll glamour label is certain to up the ‘cool factor’ as designer Melanie Greensmith launches her 2011 / 12 Spring Summer collection.

The typically sold-out show will feature Melanie’s husband Divinyls guitarist Mark McEntee with a soon to be announced line up of musical talent.

“Perth Fashion Festival is like family to us so we’re thrilled to be celebrating our 25th birthday party on home soil as part of the Festival. And His Majesty’s Theatre is the perfect venue to throw a posh rock’n ‘roll party for our closest family and friends!” Ms Greensmith said.

Commenting on such a significant milestone for Wheels & Dollbaby and the brand’s return to PFF, Festival Director, Mariella Harvey-Hanrahan said: “Perth loves Wheels & Dollbaby and so does the Festival.  The brand is fun, lively and glamorous and always sells out!”

“Being the label’s 25th year, we expect Melanie has great things in store and will deliver not only an outstanding collection but a mind-blowing production!” Ms Harvey-Hanrahan added

Wheels & Dollbaby collections are constructed and handcrafted in Australia utilising vintage inspired and sourced fabrics. The brand has developed a cult label status amongst its Dollbaby devotees, celebrity fans of which include Jerry Hall, Gwen Stefani, Pamela Anderson, Kate Hudson, Pink, Dita Von Teese, Kelly Osbourne and Sadie Frost.

Hairtime :)

Sleek long ponytails are a great low maintenance way to keep your hair safe from this windy and rainy weather!


I highly reccommend using a ghd - running it down strands from the base of your neck to the crown. Then once done, its a great idea to use a serum aswell to seal the hair follicles as well and protects them.


GHD do a lot of serums as well that are safe to use with your straightener and work well with the heat too.


They do a 'thermodynamics' which is a great product to use if you use heat styling products a lot! 




Then brush it back into your hands and tie up with a band!


Easy, low maintenance & very chic.

This shoot was done at Belmont Racecourse, for some reason, they have loaded backwards so the first ones were the last shot we took. I love the way the models just dove into the food :")

Jackets & Coats - still rugging up for this horrid weather!

Since the weather is still rainy and miserable, I am still buying coats and jackets!

A long time classic is fur (make it faux please) and there are so many colours and styles to choose from now that it makes buying very easy. Brown and grey mixes are a great way to go, as they will go with most outfits you have (as much as I love Prada's blue fur stole *sigh*)
K and Co have some great ladies coats and jackets at the moment such as this faux fur one below;


Other good way to incorporate fur if you feel a jacket is too much, buy it in a vest - warm fuzzy layers, without being fluffy all over!

Another good investment is a trench coat - always a staple, I would get one in black and one in brown!
They can be thrown over any outfit, day or night and its such a good way to stay warm and stylish.
