Perth Fashion Festival 2010
It’s that time of year in Perth when everyone on the train looks a bit more stylish than the usual commuters, Perth Fashion Festival 2010 is upon us, causing everyone in the fashion industry to run around like well dressed headless chickens. I was approved as media for a handful of Perth Fashion Festival events and shows, which should give me an opportunity to shoot creations by our talented Western Australian designers and socials of the stylish folk who frequent the shows and events.
The festival begins tomorrow, Thursday September 9th, and runs until Wednesday September 15th, the program includes both free and ticketed events to suit any fashionistas budget. The events and shows I’m looking forward to are…
Newborn event created for fashion bloggers, paying tribute to ‘The Rise Of The Fashion Blogger’ and acknowledging bloggers for discovering and influencing trends online, Fifteen Minutes is an original runway show inspired by fashion bloggers of Western Australia. Models will glide down the runway in street fashion inspired looks, styled by Emma Bergmeier and featuring garments from Billie & Rose, Zara Bryson, Merge, Planet and Pigeonhole. Cameras, phones, laptops, anything beginning with ‘iP’ that bares an Apple symbol, more cameras and any tech device possible of accessing the internet are allowed at this interesting runway event. I’m yet to confirm or deny wifi status for the show.

Wheels & Dollbaby
It’s no secret that I adore Wheels & Dollbaby. I’m looking forward to this years show more than Christmas, because Melanie won’t make you clean up after you unwrap her creations with your eyes, she’ll just ask you to move on to the after party and have a good time. I’ve already hidden my credit card, I’ll literally want everything that walks down the runway that night.

Lastly, remember to saunter over to Fashion Bar, 347 Wellington Street, during the festival for espresso martini’s and a mingle. It was a car park, but with the magic of PFF it’s now a bar. I’m told white sneakers will help you past the door bitch for the official after parties. I’m not really the white sneakers type, hopefully a 7D and glass slung around my neck will make any door bitch wet.
