Every year one of my favourite shows at the Telstra Perth Fashion Festival (TPFF) is the student runway. Fashion design students get creative to showcase their best designs across six categories. It is always so refreshing to see the imaginations of the next generation of local fashion designers come alive.
My personal favourite(s) from the night were the two dreamy creations by Polytechnic West student, Charissa Schlink, which is actually no surprise because I have been a fan of her fun fashion label, Birds On A Wire for a while!

Congratulations to all the winners and I can’t wait to follow your fashion journey!

The winners of each category:

Women’s ready to wear: Sheridan Savage, WAAPA
Men’s ready to wear: Rini Teng, Central Institute

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.
