I attended the Wheels & Dollbaby show during Perth Fashion Festival 2010, excited to see the latest collection from local designer Melanie Greensmith. The Wheels & Dollbaby fashion parade is one of the most popular events on the Perth Fashion Festival calendar and is always an instant sell-out. I wasn’t on media, so I decided to leave the 7D at home and take the G10 instead, but my inner photographer couldn’t resist taking a few quick shots while enjoying the sexy show.
The section I was seated in was close to the band, we were given earplugs for protection, which gave the area a music-pit feeling. “Free earplugs?! That’s the strangest thing I’ve seen in the goodie bag so far!” remarked one confused lady seated a row behind me.
Highlights include the gorgeous Tiah Delaney opening and closing the show in leopard print ensembles, the models wearing cute pink robes that everyone instantly wanted to sell a kidney for, girly gingham dresses, dastardly denim, hot leather shorts and the guest appearance of Leah Wood, the daughter of Rolling Stones rocker Ronnie, performing ‘Call Me’ with Mark McEntee. It was a perfect mix of fashion and rock and roll.
I’ll have one of everything, please.
