TPFF Pushes Couture Boundaries

Couture designers from both ends of the boundary pushing spectrum shared the Bloom runway at the Telstra Perth Fashion Festival last night.

The Bloom Runway opened with Indonesian designer Malik Moestaram whose bejewelled designs are inspired by  his Indonesian heritage. In contrast, 33 Poets designer Rebecca Paterson pushes the boundaries in counter culture couture. The contrasting showcases put on by these two very talented designers last night were both dramatic and arresting.

     33 Poets

33 POETS creative Rebecca Paterson has established a reputation for her unique, experimental design work. The designer’s brand of grunge couture places her as one of Australia’s leading counter-culture fashion practitioners.

Paterson’s collections explore the impact of street culture on contemporary visual art and contemporary fashion.

Malik Moestaram

Indonesian designer Malik Moestaram is revered in South East Asia for his intricate haute couture pieces. It’s easy to see why after his dazzling display of world-class design on the international runway at the Telstra Perth Fashion Festival last night.

Intricate bead work and embossed floral embellishments adorned Moestaram’s extensive collection of bejewelled haute couture pieces. Feminine, modest and glittering, the designer’s collection pays homage to the connection between women and flowers.
