Two of Perth’s top designers, FLANNEL and One Fell Swoop, showcased their latest collections in an amazing runway at the Telstra Perth Fashion Festival.
Tailoring, drapery and minimalism combined on the runway with contemporary feminine silhouettes. FLANNEL designer Kristy Lawrence said her collection took inspiration from the sights and sounds of the Italian Riveriera and featured “light as a feather chiffons, sorbet-toned silks and decadent boudoir laces, with hints of deep metallic toned beading, delicate floral embroidery and textured stud detail.”
Celebrities including Megan Fox, Isabel Lucas and Drew Barrymore are fans.
One Fell Swoop, renowned for its simple yet highly elegant aesthetic, have shown at major fashion weeks around Australia, is worn by Michelle Williams, Natalie Imbruglia, Bambi Northwood-Blythe. Designing for the modern feminine woman, designers Nina Ergic and Daniel Romanin’s debuted their Wedding Capsule collection, speciafically created for the Telstra Perth Fashion Festival.
These are two strong labels that have been around for over a decade and developed cult-like followings around the world.
Before the show, festival Creative Director Mariella Harvey-Hanrahan said the Flannel and One Fell Swoop runway was going to be “a powerful display of creativity from two of WA’s fashion icons”.
And it was.
