Dazzle and sparkle was in the air on Friday July 27 at the Grand Ballroom, Burswood Entertainment Centre.
The Western Australian AIDs Council hosted the Happy Birthday STYLEAID
, a phenomenal 15th birthday bash, celebrating the who’s who of Perth design on and off the stage. Aurelio Costarella
leaves me breathless at the best of times, so it was an absolute thrill as he opened the show with chic and perfectly fitting dresses which can only be described as walking inspiration.
From there the show escalated as Garth Cook
began with pastels and delicately revealed the female form with shear materials, Zsadar
draped the male form with ease demonstrating that demonstrated that fashion is for males too. Ae'lkemi
, a favourite Perth designer, did not disappoint and the pieces were vibrant with revealing backlines and originality which we all love.
Dilettante, by Vivienne Westwood
, reminded us that fashion is enjoyed best as wearable art and Zhivago
, a celebration of the female form, left me breathless.
The show had it all! The little black dress by Monster Alphabets
, colourful prints by Fenella Peacock
, casual threads by Flannel
constructions, young and flirty Poppy Lissman
, the colourful maxi dress by Empire Rose
, swimsuits by Bikini Atoll
and perfectly draped cuts and folds by One Fell Swoop
The show finished with candy flossed inspired visual delights by WA student designers who will no doubt be gracing the headlines in years to come.
