Student runway

 
   

 I was so excited to be asked along to the Student Runway show at PFF. I was really looking forward to seeing the creativity and talent of the student designers and the show certainly did not disappoint!

It started with a short collection from each of the three winners from last year (Alissia Gomez, Celene Bridge, Jeromy Lim) which was amazing and even featured a live snake draped over one of the models shoulders. (Brave girl!)

Next up where the entrants in the design categories. The students really let their imagination run free which resulted in some incredibly inspiring designs. It’s hard to believe that these designers are still students and it is so exciting to think what the future holds for these talented, aspiring designers.

 One of my favourite shows of the Perth Fashion Festival was Story by Tang. I pretty much loved everything about this collection. Keyhole backs teamed with structured cap sleeves, knotted ruching and the completely wearable black, nude and red colour palette all really appealed to me. And don’t even get me started on the hair and makeup. Amazing!
 Watching this collection made me want to own a piece, so I guess you could say it was a definite success.

Unfortunately I didn’t get any decent photos so all images seen here are courtesy of Simon Santi.

Paper Skye

 

White, bright and sheer. Paper Skye was all about the pure look with the use of sheer, white, textured, fabrics layered over white underwear throughout the whole collection. Long floaty lengths, small pleats and vertical stripes all featured in this immaculate collection. I really loved the white on white look but I was left wondering if it is actually acceptable to wear sheer dresses with only underwear underneath? My question was answered on Sunday night when the stunning face of the Perth Fashion Festival Nicole Trunfio was spotted wearing just that.. so I guess the answer is yes but only if you are a model!

Lisa Marjanovich

 
Next to hit the runway at the designer capsule #1 was Lisa Marjanovich. The collection was made up of slinky, draped pieces in beautiful muted tones. The wet look hair and dewy makeup perfectly complemented the fluid notion of the clothes. Shorter hemlines with longer draped pieces and layered fabrics with twisted detail were all dominant in this unique, elegant collection. 

Little Gracie

 

Oh my I think I’m in love! Designer Ebony Harding and her label Little Gracie stole the show for me last night at PFF’s Designer Capsule #1. Gorgeous pastel colours, layered tulle fabrics and floral patterns where all prominent in this pretty, girlie collection. Sheer maxi skirts,cropped tops, short playsuits, pallazzo pants, intricate beading and mini tulle dresses all featured in this stunning display of feminine fashion. LOVE !
